New Year’s Eve Singapore Countdown 2024: Top 7 Things to Do

The time has come to say goodbye to 2023; whether you are feeling sentimental about this year’s accomplishments or can’t wait to herald the new year, here are our recommendations of the top 7 things to do to end the year right!


1. Catch the New Year Fireworks

Nothing much needs to be said about catching the fireworks during New Year’s Eve – the most iconic activity to celebrate the end and start of the new year. Each year, the annual fireworks display is held at several locations across Singapore, with the main event held at Marina Bay. 


This year, the fireworks show will culminate into a 12-minute grand finale with colour-changing fireworks, along with a go-kart arena, ‘TurboCharged’, and a massive winter playground pop-up, ‘Ice Magic: Winter Wonderland’. If you’re not afraid of crowds, head down to Marina Bay to enjoy the free countdown event, where you can view the grand spectacle above the Lion City’s breathtaking skyline and glittering waters. 


Address: Marina Bay 


Naumi’s Pro Tip: 

Don’t want to squeeze with the crowds? Chill and catch the fireworks at lesser-known places like the Tanjong Rhu Promenade and the Nicoll Highway Riverbank, which still offer you an excellent vantage point of the fireworks display while giving you some peace and quiet. Psst! Tanjong Rhu Promenade and Nicoll Highway Riverbank are just a 10-15 minute drive away from Naumi Hotels Singapore! 😉

2. Party the Night Away at a Beach Party

If the typical fireworks show just isn’t cutting it for your New Year’s celebration, why not unleash your best dance moves at Sentosa Music Fest and Countdown Party? Dance 2023 away and welcome 2024 with live performances and DJs at a non-stop music extravaganza that transforms a whole kilometer of beach into one giant dance floor! 


Naumi’s Pro Tip:  

Once the party is over, queues for the taxi can stretch like a nightmare. Avoid the taxi queues by pre-booking your taxi on ride hailing apps beforehand! 


Address: Sentosa Island 



3. Dine in the Sky


We get it, you want a good view of the fireworks display. But rather than competing with the rest for the best view, how about watching the fireworks from the sky itself? Have the fireworks explode right in your face with a glass of champagne in hand on the Singapore Flyer New Year’s Eve Countdown Champagne Special. If you want to woo someone special, go all out and opt for the four-course dinner option, where you can enjoy the unparalleled views of the night display while having an intimate, romantic dinner. 


Address: Singapore Flyer, 30 Raffles Ave., Singapore 039803 


4. Dine at a Sky-High Restaurant



If you can’t get tickets to dining-in-the-sky, and are still looking for a romantic treat with the view of the fireworks, try one of the sky-high restaurants near the Marina Bay Promenade.  


The wide array of premium dining restaurants available around the area will have you covered for choices as you choose between contemporary Asian cuisine at CÉ LA VI, Mediterranean-inspired cuisine at Artemis Grill & Sky Bar, or the world’s highest microbrewery at Level 33. All these restaurants come equipped with an accompanying Sky bar, allowing you to sip on signature cocktails while you revel in the festive New Year’s atmosphere away from the sweaty crowds. 


Naumi Pro Tip: 

The 3 restaurants are less than 10-minute drive from Naumi Hotels Singapore; if you don’t want to fight for taxis, consider taking in the scenic views of the Central Business District area while taking a relaxing New Year’s walk to the restaurant. 



CÉ LA VI: 1 Bayfront Avenue Marina Bay Sands, Hotel, Tower 3, 018971 

Artemis Grill & Sky Bar: 138 Market St, #40-01 CapitaGreen, Singapore 048946 

Level 33: 8 Marina Blvd, #33 – 01 Tower 1, Singapore 018981 



5. Picnic at Marina Barrage


If you want something less fancy, a picnic at Marina Barrage may just be for you. After all, New Year’s is not always about fine dining and dance parties! Get comfy with your picnic baskets and mats and enjoy a close-up view of the fireworks as you watch the evening sky light up right above you.  


Naumi Pro Tip: 

Be warned, Marina Barrage offers you a prime vantage point of the fireworks display, but early planning is required to ensure you get a good spot! 


Address: Marina Barrage 


6. Experience Childhood Happiness at Universal Studios Singapore


You’re never too old for a theme park! Hit the scariest rides, watch a 4D show and take a picture with your favourite cartoon characters at Universal Studios Singapore. If you’re accompanied by kids, this is the perfect place to bring them out for a bit of fun while you relive your childhood memories at this enchanting wonderland. Once again, make sure to book your tickets early as tickets can sell out fast!


Address: 8 Sentosa Gateway, 098269


7. A Fireworks Staycation with your Family and Friends at Naumi Hotel Singapore’s CLOUD 9 Rooftop Bar

This holiday, treat yourself to a soothing staycation at Naumi Hotels Singapore and enjoy uninterrupted, stunning views of the year’s last fireworks at our rooftop infinity pool Cloud 9 while sipping on our selection of signature cocktails available from the pool bar.
