Oh, and less we forget about the most important point; you might want to take note of the road closures [if you’re driving], and the bus services that would be affected by the road closures [if you’re taking the public bus].

If you are driving, do note that parking lots are limited and you are strongly advised to leave your house early. Otherwise, it is wiser to take the public transport. The last trains toward Joo Koon, Pasir Ris, and Jurong East MRT stations will depart City Hall MRT station at 2.15am and the last train toward Marina Bay MRT station will depart City Hall MRT station at 2.01am. Last trains toward HarbourFront and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations will depart the respective terminals at 1.38am.

Last but not the least, while you enjoy and soak yourself in the happy occasion, don’t forget to keep Marina Bay clean for the community to enjoy by not leaving your thrash behind!
Have fun and Happy New Year everyone!
May all your wishes and dreams come true!
