Best restaurants to watch the NDP fireworks in Singapore
National Day is coming, which means three things: a public holiday, the National Day Parade (NDP), and of course, fireworks. If you’re looking forward to the latter and want to make an occasion out of watching the nighttime spectacle, we suggest swinging by a local restaurant with views of the NDP fireworks display. To help you along your quest, and to make sure you’re getting in those reservations early, here is our guide to the best restaurants in Singapore to watch the NDP fireworks from.
While 9 August is obviously showtime, you can also catch the fireworks during rehearsal dates, which fall on 22 July and 29 July this year.
BTW: We also have a guide for where you can watch the NDP fireworks for free.
