    Fireworks will be fired from marina south according to this map (courtesy of streetdirectory.com and the official ndp site. So if we're positioning on sheares bridge, does it mean we have to be facing the side of the bridge opposite to the city skyline?

    Wonder if the fireworks can be viewed from the Esplanade?

    Views anyone?

    Seriously I feel a better place to view/shoot without going to Marina South is at the spot where Singapore River and Kallang River meets. Other than that, you may wanna try your luck walking towards the opposite reclaim land site opposite Marina South.

    Any last min gathering to shoot from anywhere? Getting out after the fireworks at Marina South may be a problem with all the crowd waiting for the bus service.

    I got a feeling half the people here are at the wrong position, judging from the number of people I saw on the opposite side of the shore from where I was. I managed to double confirm the location by going there early and asking the soldiers at the info booths in the carnival itself. Too bad cant confirm this earlier so that all of us can enjoy the show...

    Do you guys want to shoot from the bridge or along the water's edge opposite the firing point?

    Hi wykhoo,

    i just called the ndp enqiury line and officer on the phone confirmed that the firing point for today and 14th will be the same as the one on 6th.

    The one on National Day itself will be the platform opp marina square.

    Hope this will help you guys! <Myself got screwed on the 6th - thought it was from the platform opp marina square and ended hardly seeing anything >
