National Day is just around the corner! Why not plan a trip out with the family this time and catch the fireworks. Here are some hot spots you can catch and photograph the National Day Parade’s Fireworks.

You can catch the fireworks even before 9th August. On every Saturday for about one and a half month before the actual parade, there will be firework displays during NDP rehearsals and also on Gardens by the Bay & Mediacorp National Day Concert on 5 Aug 2023.

Based on the preview shows, the fireworks and fire display begin at around 8.11pm (main fireworks), followed by the National Anthem and another short session of fireworks.

Whether you are carrying your DSLR or smartphones – remember to charge them before heading out of the house!
