1. Marina Bay Countdown for New Year’s Eve
The best way to spend New Year’s is always to be right there for the countdown. The Marina Bay area in Singapore is a top place to celebrate the New Year. With tons of people, Singaporeans and tourists alike, gathering in this area for live performances, dancing, celebrating, food, and of course, fireworks to end the night, you will be sure to enter 2015 with a bang. People who come here will enjoy seeing the fireworks with the Singaporean skyline in the background, while sending up ‘wishing spheres’ in the Bay of Hope and Light where you can make your wish for the New Year. Make sure to arrive early to the area, as it will get crowded very quickly.
2. Siloso Beach Party
If the idea of bringing in the New Year is celebrating on one of Singapore’s best beaches with 20,000 other people, then head to the Siloso Beach Party near the Sentosa Resort. The beach party has everything from live performances, DJ’s, and non-stop music all on top of a kilometer long stretch of beach that is transformed into a gigantic dance floor. You will also be able to see the fireworks as you and others bring in the New Year. Forget watching the parties from your TV-be a part of it at Siloso! Get your tickets early as it can fill up fast.
3. Singapore Flyer
The Singapore Flyer is a great way of seeing in the New Year in Singapore. On the Singapore Flyer, a giant Ferris wheel, attendees will get a once in a lifetime panoramic view of Singapore on New Year’s Eve. The ride takes about 30 minutes and in addition to great views, you can get unique butler service along with a special menu for New Year’s. In the past, the Singapore Flyer has held their own Sky Party countdown. Although this year the countdown won’t be happening here, riders can still get an incredible view of all the other countdowns going on in Singapore from this awesome viewpoint.
4. New Year’s Eve Party at Universal Studios
What better way to spend New Year’s than at your favorite theme park? A great option for families or those who don’t want to stay out too late, visitors can come hang out at Universal Studios and experience LED street acts and shows, a Black Eyed Peas tribute band, pyrotechnics, and of course thrill rides that will be open all night! Watch those New Year’s fireworks from the top of a roller coaster and bring in the New Year with tons of fun for the whole family!
5. New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at Tanjong Beach Club
The Tanjong Beach Club in Singapore is already recognized for its great amenities and events for visitors to the hotel. However, the Tanjong Beach Club takes ‘vacation’ to a whole new level during their New Year’s event. Come to the Tanjong Beach Club in Sentosa for the party of a lifetime.
