If you didn’t manage to score tickets to this year’s National Day Parade like most of us, but still want to get in on the festivities, we’ve got your back. Held at the Padang, NDP 2019’s closing fireworks display will last for five minutes and will be set off from three locations, including the Singapore River (outside Asian Civilisations Museum) for the first time. The other two are the Padang (for low-level pyrotechnics) and the usual Marina Bay area.

This year’s fireworks marking Singapore’s 54th birthday and bicentennial year will also feature the longest barge in Marina Bay history, at a whopping 450 metres long!
If you’re not keen on going on the 9th itself, you can get a glimpse at the second preview show on Aug 3. Alternatively, you can book a table at one of these restaurants that offer great views. But if you’re willing to brave the crowds (make sure to head there very early to snag a spot), these prime spots around Marina Bay offer magnificent and FREE vantage points:
