Get prepared to bid farewell to National Day Parades at the Marina Bay Floating Platform.

Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen wrote on his Facebook page yesterday that the upcoming NDP will be the last at the Floating Platform "for at least a few years to come".

It was supposed to be a temporary site for the NDPs while the new National Stadium was being built, "but it has exceeded all expectations", he wrote.

Dr Ng said next year's NDP will be held at the Padang and the subsequent one will be at the new National Stadium.

Including this year's NDP, Marina Bay Floating Platform will have hosted seven NDPs since 2007.
