Waterfront promenade at Bay East Garden, Gardens By The Bay
The waterfront promenade at Bay East Garden, connects East Coast Park to the Barrage, and lucky for us, has plenty of spots on its 2km stretch from which to view the NYE fireworks over Marina Bay. The garden is open 24 hours and there are no admission charges, so go early, bring some nibbles and sit back to enjoy the spectacle!
