No luck for tickets to the National Day Parade this year? Here are some alternative spots where you can enjoy the dazzling display of the National Day Parade fireworks.
They are two chances each year to watch how Singapore light up their sky – every July during the National Day Parade Rehearsals leading up to August 9th where the National Day Parade takes place, and during the New Year’s Eve. Here are our top picks to catch the spectacular showpiece during Singapore’s very own birthday bash.
1. Smoke & Mirrors
Perched atop of the National Gallery Singapore, the bar’s stunning views is no longer a secret among those in-the-know. What makes this space even special is that this year, the main stage of the National Day Parade returns to the Padang allowing the bar visitors an unbostructed views of the celebration. Tuck into a buffet spread featuring local fare like satay, bak kut teh, laksa and Hainanese chicken rice, and raise a toast to Singapore with the spectacular fireworks set against the panoramic skyline.
