Singapore rang in the new year with a string of spectacular fireworks displayed across the skyline.

The display, which lasted a total of eight minutes, lit up the night sky as strains of music by Cultural Medallion winner Iskandar Ismail filled the air.

The fireworks, which illuminated the sky, also provided a backdrop for the hundreds of white spheres bobbing in the bay, each containing different wishes for 2013 penned by revellers.

Watched by tens of thousands of attendees at the Marina Bay countdown party, the atmosphere was electric as the crowd counted down the seconds in unison.
