Marina Bay holds the largest New Year celebration in Singapore.

People gather around the bay, at the floating stadium, on the Esplanade promenade, the Esplanade Bridge, Merlion Park, Benjamin Sheares Bridge, and the Padang at City Hall.
Marina Bay restaurants offer glamorous countdown parties for those who want to ring in the New Year in style. One of the best places to view the fireworks against the Singapore skyline is SkyPark Observation Deck, located on the 57th floor. Live music, champagne, and party favors will contribute to the extravagant New Year's Eve.
