Catching the New Year’s Eve 2024 fireworks in Singapore from the Singapore Flyer will give you the best bird’s eye view, and because it’s the hottest seat in the nation, the tickets get sold out quickly!

Okay, we know this isn’t free, but if you want to get real fancy, book the New Year’s Eve Countdown Champagne Special ($180 per pax), and toast to a fab 2024 with a glass of champagne, chocolate bonbons from pastry chef Janice Wong, a party pack, plus priority boarding for one rotation on the Singapore flyer in a shared capsule.
