If you’re welcoming the New Year 2015 in Singapore, here is a list of places to head to if you want to join in the celebrations:
1. Marina Bay Countdown for New Year 2015
Set against the city’s skyline, with live music performances and a huge fireworks display to cap off the night, this is THE place to be when ushering the New Year in Singapore. 25000 ‘wishing spheres’ will be set afloat in Marina Bay to form a giant number ‘50’ to commemorate Singapore’s 50th year of independence. If you’re already in Singapore, be sure to pen your wishes (it’s free!) at any one of the 31 wishing stations around the island. There will be video projections on the façade of The Fullerton Hotel and the Merlion and 400 drummers will be performing to the 8-minute firework display at night. Definitely a sight to behold for both friends and family!

2. Dance in the Park – A Neon Countdown to 2015
Bring on your neon as USS covers itself with LEDs and UV lights for the New Year! Going for a glow-in-the-dark theme, this will be an interesting event where you can dance along the boulevards of Hollywood and New York with your favourite characters and catch fascinating light shows. Fans of the Black Eyed Peas can catch the tribute act ‘Black Eyed Tease’ who is coming down all the way from Las Vegas to add some beats to the party as well! The park timings will be extended to 1am on 31st December so get your tickets early here for an online special of $61 (min 2 tickets) or $68 (single ticket purchase)!
3. Marina Bay Sands – Sky High Social
For those looking to party it up and we mean literally high up, book a spot at the Marina Bay Sands’ SkyPark Observation Deck. Toast to a new year under the stars as you get a perfect and unobstructed view of the city skyline as well as the fireworks display from the Marina Bay Countdown. Enjoy live performances, party packs and lots of photo opportunities. Tickets start from $172, which include a glass of champagne, and can be reserved here. Perfect for couples or group of friends who are looking for a lavish and memorable start to the year.
All the party people, this is where you should be headed for the New Year’s! From 6pm to 6am, there will be 12 hours of non-stop music, dance and partying. With a line-up of international DJs, 5 party zones and a giant foam pool, make the beach your dance floor this New Year’s! Come dressed in your beach’s best and go crazy till dawn breaks.

6. Tanjong Beach Club ‘Brand New Day’
If partying for one night isn’t enough, head down to Tanjong Beach Club’s 2 days long New Year’s party. On 31 December, there will be a countdown party featuring one of the best resident DJs from London’s Ministry of Sound, DJ Jon White, who will be spinning beats from house to electro until dawn. Fire-twirlers, floating lanterns and loads of confetti can be expected as well adding to the celebratory atmosphere! On 1st January, the party continues with the Brand New Day Celebrations!
