We will be visiting Singapore next January 31st and February 1st, 2014 and need help in choosing the best luxury hotel from which to view the fireworks . Also, like you did... we would love to attend the Chingay Parade. Do you have to buy tickets (like the parade for carnival in Rio) and if so where is the best place to obtain tickets? Also, is it safe to go to Chinatown at night for festivities is you do not speak the language?
HELP!!! Thank you so much for any suggestions you have!
