Counting down to 2012, 3 more days! As the date draw nearer to us, let's find out some places which you can capture good photos, and allow me to orientate you the event area!
The most important thing that you must bear in mind is the ease of accessibility to Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2012. My advised is that, don't drive, take the public transport. Don't worry, having the same dialect surname as Saw Phaik Hwa doesn't mean that I'm promoting SMRT. Haha, but seriously right from the bottom from my heart. Trust me, I was there last year. There will be 4 MRT stations available, but, the one nearest to Marina City Bay Gallery will be Marina Bay MRT station. Best place to capture firework pictures. =)
And most importantly, I will be stationed at Marina Bay City Gallery to give "live" updates on my twitter on 31st Dec 2011 : http://twitter.com/kevinskh , follow me as I bring you the latest updates on the countdown event! Also, I will be giving away free mediacorp countdown tickets at the float. You need to know where am I to collect your tickets yea. Haha.
Marina Bay City Gallery
This place is open to the public and there's an interactive 3D map of the Marina Bay skyline. It's pretty unique and you can get to know Marina Bay better.
The Water Fountain
It's just located outside the Marina Bay City Gallery.
A pretty nice spot for many who enjoy taking pictures with family and friends. Now you don't have to travel all the way to Marina Barrage! There's one at Marina Bay too!
The Mist Walk
As the name suggests, this metal pipe structure gives off mist when the sensor detects someone is there. It's just less than 100m away from the Marina Bay City Gallery.
Tired? Need a resting spot? Well, these breeze shelters has really gigantic fans attached to it, making sure that the restless souls will be energize again! Well, but the cooling weather these days, I don't think you will really need it right?
The gigantic fans ...
Marina Bay Financial Centre
Now, look at the picture, do I have to explain further? The lighting is simply awesome!
The Promontory @ Marina Bay
On New Year's Eve, there are various activities out there which will keep you entertained. It's free!
Check out performances like Happy 3+65 New Year's Eve Countdown Show from 6.30pm to 8.30pm and Rhythms by the Bay with FM Pop Music School from 9.30pm to 12.00am.
If you intend to come from Raffles Place MRT, locate exit J, and look for the sign along the way. It will be an estimated 10 - 15min walk, but it will lead you to actual event area. Have a dinner in the Marina link mall, and walk abit to digest your food!
Here's the map in Marina Link Mall. As I've said, it's abit of distance from the MRT to The Promontory exit....one end to the other... print this out if you're afraid of getting lost!
There are also a couple of events going on at Esplanade to keep you occupied too! Check out my post here:
