    but the space up there facing the fireworks the most can place about 2 to 3 tripods only. (if I don't remember wrongly).

    one can use a wide angle (or even panaroma), and capture the CBD + fireworks, but of course not adding the pan pacific hotel in the frame.

    by the way how much to get to the rooftop of suntec city?

    Normal day I think it's about $10 per person per half or one hour. Go to Suntec tower 4 information counter and enquiry about the "Summit Tour", open daily I think. National Day itself the price will be more than $10 as they include boat ride at clarke quay. Wind condition will depend on actual day.

    It's open space. Last year NDP took fireworks from there and I remember the wind quite strong. Tripod got to be stable enough.

    I tot the place is enclosed with glass? not open space? Was told by the counter stuff at suntec when i asked about the roof top tour. Please correct me if i am wrong.

    It's open space. You can take a look at these photos for better idea.

    i ask before about the price. Its S$20. I think its a little too steep. Rather squeeze with the crowd.

    If it's $20 per person (get 10 CS members to share), then it's better to book a room at one of the hotel... about $200 with breakfast for 2 as well as getting uninterrupted views + AIR-CON. Later can even do artistic shoots too .... hehe
    Breakfast at pool side, then have a swim and model shoot at hotel pool toooooo
    always the Light, .... always.

    Imagine 10 ppl squeezing infront of the window. Not mentioning mirror reflection. I also don't think the swisstel hotel's balcony can squeeze so many people.

    I booked a room at Swissotel for opening of Esplanade. I think you would only comfortably fit 4 tripods on the balcony. A lot will depend on wind direction/strength - I imagine for those who had booked a room last night, the smoke would've spoilt things after the first few fireworks.

    Thought the show last night was pretty disappointing.
