Places to celebrate and countdown to 2018 in Singapore

By Darren, December 27, 2017

What comes after Christmas? That’s right! New Year’s Eve, the special (and last) day we all look forward to this year. Speaking about New Year’s Eve, we will indefinitely anticipate the annual fireworks that would soon be decorating our skies on this special evening.


The theme for this year’s fireworks show is ”Bay of Hopes and Dreams”. There will also be light show projections on various Marina Bay landmarks such as the Fullerton Hotel Singapore, the Merlion and the ArtScience Museum in conjunction with the fireworks display.


With all our celebratory mood still flowing within us, here are some events and places of interest you might want to visit with your family and friends to end the year with a bang, literally.
