Photo-hunt on New Year Eve !!!!

I would love to do some photo-hunting on that night. For sure there will be a firework display . The problems are :
  • Will it be at Dataran Merdeka or KLCC ?
  • Driving on that night would only be a waste of time because of the expected massive traffic jam
  • Taking the train will be 'hell to pay' as the crowd can be a little rowdy and high spirited and I wouldn't take the risk of damaging my camera
 There was a time when a group of students took the train to be at the KLCC to celebrate the eve, and the train was so packed that it broke down and they spent the new year eve in the train ! I don't really fancy such an experience !

Probably the best thing to do is to look for a high-rise spot ( could be a hill or a high-rise building) not too far from the city-centre  .

Anybody having any plan to go photo-hunting that night ? Or can anyone suggest a good vantage point outside the city-centre to photograph the fireworks ?

Maybe I might park the car at the Setiawangsa station and risk a short journey to KLCC..........maybe..............maybe..................( wish I'm in Singapore ....)

Sunnysideup, how about going up the hill at Setiawangsa,after Diva,where those big houses are. i should think you will be able to shoot the fireworks. It's far but at least you don't have to fight with the crowd.

That is worth looking into except that there might be a vantage point.

yup, i could shoot the fireworks in my dream --- if i dream that is. Titiwangsa might be a good idea !
