Fireworks on New Year

Postby chixchix » Wed, 03 Dec 2008 9:47 am

Hii all :P i am thinking of checking into a hotel with my kiddo's and watch fireworks on New Year's Eve.. tried calling Sentosa' s Shangri La but no room. anyone can suggest another hotel where I can get a good view of the fireworks. :)

Thanks in advance!

High floor of the Swissotel The Stamford at Raffles City? Would have to check out the rooms as the building is circular but you would definitely have a view!

try all other hotels in marina bay that will have a view over the fireworks. here's some i can think of... fullerton, pan pacific, ritz-carlton, mandarin and conrad. it was fab when i was a long term guest staying at one of those hotels.

that's where you got to ask where the room is facing before you book!

Me? I just relaxed and watched it on a 42" Plasma in the comfort of my own home with a nice bottle of wine & cheese, etc. Didn't have to worry about crowds, transport or rain. And when Gurmit and his silly crew got too boring I just changed channels. Best of all worlds and the savings of the Hotel bill paid for 25% of the TV now that I think about it. :wink:

It was much easier on the economic outlook this year as well considering. :cool:

I've done it several times in the past, found it highly overrated. Course I hate crowds so that might have a lot to do with it. :wink:
