The best places in the world to spend New Years Eve
Celebrating New Year's Eve in your home town is great, but it can get boring doing the same thing year after year. If you want to mix things up a bit, taking a trip to a different country is a great idea. But where exactly should you go for the ultimate New Year's Eve party?
Las Vegas, America
If you're searching for a New Year's Eve full of excess and debauchery, then it's about time you book a trip to Las Vegas! Never a place to do things by halves, New Year's Eve sees tens of thousands of party hungry revellers take to the streets as the entire strip is closed off to traffic, making it one enormous street party. And if being outside isn't your thing, there's no shortage of parties going on in the clubs and casinos along the strip!
Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand
Koh Pha Ngan's Full Moon Parties are infamous the world over, and things only get wilder on New Year's Eve! What started as a small beach party for 20-30 people has grown over the years to an all-night rave that is now attended by thousands. Bars on the beach stay open playing a range of music until sunrise, with psy-trance, R&B, drum and bass, house, dance, reggae and more to dance the night away to!
New York, America
What better place to ring in the New Year than the city that never sleeps? Whether you want to watch the ball drop in Times Square, take in dinner and a show, visit one of the hundreds of bars and clubs, or watch a concert, New York has something for everyone!
If you can't celebrate New Year's Eve without a firework display, then Sydney is the place for you. Sydney's New Year's Eve fireworks display is world famous, and for good reason! The event draws in over 1.6 million spectators each year and the fireworks weigh 7 tonnes, with 100,000 pyrotechnic effects and 25,000 shooting comets!
