Bay East Garden @ Gardens by the Bay
If you are looking for gorgeous, panoramic shots of the fireworks, flanked by Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer, head to Bay East Garden at Gardens by the Bay.
It's also one of the quieter areas, and perhaps more suitable for families with young children, or the elderly. You can get there by car via Tanjong Rhu road or across the bridge from Marina Barrage.

Esplanade Waterfront and Roof Terrace
The rooftop garden at the Esplanade and the Esplanade Waterfront offers great views. Expect it to be crowded though.
