Marina Bay Singapore Countdown

Marina Bay Singapore Countdown
4.5
About
Singapore’s largest countdown event - the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown - is an annual celebration that brings together people from all walks of life for a night of revelry and reflection on New Year’s Eve. A unique tradition of the countdown is a gigantic installation comprising 20,000 wishing spheres, containing over 500,000 wishes penned by the community, set afloat in the water. The wishing spheres represent the collective hopes and dreams of the nation, and are set aglow with coloured lights on New Year’s Eve to form a dynamic piece of visual art. Festivities around the Bay, which include live outdoor musical performances, carnivals and waterfront bazaars, begin in the early evening and culminate in a spectacular firework display that lights up the city skyline at midnight.

We had tickets to Star Island at Marina Bay for New Year countdown. Have experienced New Year in a few countries, this blows everyone out of the water. One and a half hours of fireworks and drone show. You'll see nothing like it. YOU MUST GO.

We specially visited Singapore during Christmas to watch the Marina Bay new year's countdown and the fireworks display!!! There were thousands of people from all over the globe in the area but the police managed the crowd very well. Quite a few areas were cordoned off for traffic. The firework display started around 11 pm and went on till about 12.15 past midnight. I must admit that this was one of the most thrilling experiences we had in our life. The atmosphere was electrifying and music was awesome. I have never seen a live display of such magnificent fireworks ever before. Only challenge was getting back to our hotel post the show. We had to take the MRT from here since no cabs were available. The MRT was very crowded and we barely managed to get in. But was an amazing experience and must visit.

What an amazing experience! Come early as the place will be absolutely packed few hours before midnight! Got very good spots in the front and got amazing photos towards the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, from which direction they shoot the firework. So come early, find a great spot on the opposite side of Marina Bay Sands and enjoy the spectacular show!

If you do a stop off in transit to or from New Zealand stay in Singapore City and do a visit by boat to the Marina City Park - it is absolutely stunning - we went in March 2015 - the weather was just right (Couple of down pours but hot) and this Park is a must and a visit up to the restaurant if you can get in is another great experience of sushi food - recommend
