    Where is a good place to take the fireworks? From the photo on the website, it looks like the old Westin but can get access?

    Yes, many location possible. The fireworks are launch from the small floating platforms (at least 3 or 4) among the Wishing Spheres water area just beside the Merlion area.

    If you are at Merlion park or One Fullerton, it will be too close for shoot...unless you have a UWA lens. But the view will be

    I was at Fullerton area that site during NDP this year and the fireworks are too big and too high. So can't get it captured well even at 18mm on a DX body.

    Planned to go somewhere further away hoping the fireworks are not the small ones but I really do not know where is a good place to go to.

    The Marina Barrage is a good location.

    Transportation is the main problem. How to get out of there if not driving. there is only one or two bus services and it will be expectetd to pack right to the doors. the walk back to the marina MRT is long....
