TL;DR – Boom Boom Pow.
This year’s National Day Parade will be back at the Marina Bay Floating Platform after a two-year hiatus and this also means that the full outdoors fireworks show will be on display this August 9th against the Marina Bay skyline.
If you didn’t manage to score tickets to the parade but would still like to enjoy the pyrotechnics (preferably in the comfort of an air-conditioned hotel room with a glass of champagne in tow), here are some staycation packages you might want to book.
1) Best luxury experience: The Fullerton Bay Hotel
The only hotel in Marina Bay built over water, the National Day Package here allows you to enjoy the fireworks from the privacy of your room or even if you don’t book a room with a fireworks view, you can still enjoy access to the One Fullerton Rooftop to view the display with free-flow beer and soft drinks.
