As we lean in closer to the nation’s birthday on 9 August, we have gathered a list of places for you to catch the fireworks this year!
1. Kallang Wave Mall
Probably the nearest location to view the fireworks at a close distance. We foresee that the place will be packed with crowds even before dawn so if you want a nice spot, go early!
Grab some food to last you through the night from the various restaurants or eateries in Kallang Wave Mall! For a list of restaurants or eateries, http://www.sportshub.com.sg/kallangwave/Pages/kallang-wave-mall.aspx

2. Tanjong Rhu Place
If you’re aiming to include the National Stadium in your pictures, the walkway will be an ideal spot for you to snap your perfect fireworks.
Things to note:
Finding a toilet nearby may be hard since the nearest toilet would probably be at the Kallang Wave Mall. Remember to make a trip to the toilet before settling down at your spot!
Also, accessibility may be restricted due to road blocks.
Remember to check for roadblocks before planning your route!
