In the blink of an eye, 2023 is about to come to an end.

It feels like it was just a couple of weeks ago when 2023 just started, and we were all busy making new year resolutions in the hope of fulfilling them through the year. But ready or not, in just a couple of days, we will be celebrating the end of yet, another year while ushering in a new one. 

If you are looking to welcome 2024 and bid adieu to 2023 with a loud bang (but on a budget), here are eight countdown options to consider.


Marina Bay Countdown

Singapore's New Year celebrations are largely defined by the extravagant spectacles that are Marina Bay's yearly countdowns, as they have been for so many years. This year's revelry includes a whole host of commemorative events like an immersive go-kart arena (TurboCharged), Asia's largest touring pop-up winter playground (Ice Magic: Winter Wonderland), and of course, the annual fireworks display to end off the year with a bang.

Besides that, at different pitstops, Marina Boulevard will be aglow with a kaleidoscope of playful colours under the Brightening Lives campaign. Depicting the stories of hope and empowerment within the community, you can expect a showcase of co-created artworks from local students that'kk make for insta-worthy photo ops.

Let's Celebrate 2024

While partygoers may enjoy a roaring festival of celebrations to commemorate the New Year, some may prefer the warmth and intimacy of home and family. Well, if this resonates with you, Let's Celebrate 2024 is the perfect countdown event.

Hosting Singapore's most gifted singers and songwriters such as Jasmine Sokko, Tasha Low, Crash Adams, Kumar, and more, this New Year's event celebrates our cultural and artistic growth through light installations and fireworks. It promises an exciting lineup all through the night. What's more, attendees can expect DJ live spinning, food, drinks, games, and even a chance to win lucky draw prizes!

And of course, you'll get front-row seats to the best New Year's fireworks in town. Gates open at 7pm. Best of all, admission is free!

Looking for a more ostentatious way to end the year with a bang? CÉ LA VI is the perfect place to countdown the last seconds of 2023. Located on the rooftop of Marina Bay Sands, you can expect to be greeted by a panoramic view of the glory that is our city of lights.

With an extensive menu that revolves around contemporary Asian cuisines and experimental cocktails, you can finally raise your glass with style.

Location: Level 57, Marina Bay Sands SkyPark, Hotel Tower 3, 1 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018971


Situated a whopping 57 floors above ground, to say it delivers a panoramic viewpoint of the New Year's fireworks is an understatement. Facing the Marina Bay waterfront, you can sip on some champagne and watch the sky set ablaze atop LAVO's rooftop bar.

Moreover, LAVO's hosting its very own New Year's Eve party featuring an exciting lineup of DJ sets, live music performances, and endless booze – all the perfect ingredients for a night of non-stop partying and entertainment as we ring in 2024.

Unfortunately, if you're reading this now, the early bird and standard tickets to this NYE party are already sold out. However, you might have some luck finding a seller on Carousell for those desperate to join in on the fun at LAVO.

Cost: From S$248
Address: 10 Bayfront Avenue, Tower 1, Level 57, Singapore 018956
Time: 31 December 2023, 10pm to 2pm

Marina Square rooftop

While understated to some but popular to others (especially if you're no stranger to attending dance classes at Legacy Studio 😉), the Marina Square rooftop is a great vantage point to spectate the year-end fireworks. In recent years, it's gotten more popular as spot to chill and engage in HTHT with pals, however, we reckon you can still secure a spot to admire the pyrotechnics if you head there early after a sumptuous NYE dinner.

Location: 6 Raffles Boulevard, Marina Square, Singapore 039594

Marina South Pier

It comes as no surprise that what makes as an idyllic picnic and family recreation spot also doubles up as a great location for viewing New Year's fireworks. Since it's located along the Marina Coastal Drive, it faces Marina Barrage despite being a slight distance away. It's a great venue option if you have elderly and young children in tow who might be afraid or sensitive to the loud fireworks bangs.

High Street Centre Carpark

The High Street Centre Carpark is perhaps the most hidden and underrated spot on our list. When your boyfriend (or first date, we don't judge) says, "I know a spot", chances are, this carpark is a good option. 

Head up to the 5th floor of the carpark to be treated to awe-inspiring views of the Singapore River, Marina Bay, and the city skyline. All in all, this is arguably a quieter and more subdued alternative to the usual crowded locations around town.

Location: 1 North Bridge Road, Singapore 179094 (Accessible via a 6-minute walk from Clarke Quay and City Hall MRT stations)

Fireworks and hotpot at heartland spots

What better way to conclude the year than to indulge in food, drinks and displays of luminous fireworks. Host your own New Year's gathering at your abode. Worried about the hassle and mess? With the prevalence of hotpot delivery services in Singapore, these concerns are easily alleviated. With well-established steamboat providers such as Mr Steamboat, have a feast delivered to your doorstep as you reunite with loved ones, old friends and relatives.

After which, head to one of the heartland locations and enjoy the glorious pageantry of fireworks. While 2023's official locations have yet to be confirmed, we predict that they will be similar to previous years' locations:
