You’ve probably done it all.
You’ve greeted the New Year at a fancy gala dressed up in expensive attire and boasting your designer jewelry. You’ve partied with your closest friends in an apartment, wearing jeans and eating pizza. You raised a glass at a mountain cabin surrounded by snow and danced the night away on the beach.
No matter what time of year it is, the big question, “What are you doing for New Year’s Eve?” opens up so many possibilities for unique and exciting answers.
So, what plans do you have? If you’re out of ideas, then this article is perfect for you. Here are seven exquisite destinations you can visit for unique experiences.
Start the New Year’s Eve celebration ahead of everyone else in one of the best destinations for culture, fun and fantastic fireworks shows. Getting there will take a long time, but the long flights will allow you to rest comfortably and preserve your energy for all the fun things you’ll want to try once you get there. It doesn’t matter if you want to dine at a five-star restaurant, party the night away in an exclusive club or if you keep the celebration private. Sydney has it all.
Although there are plenty of events, shows, and concerts you can attend, make sure not to miss the amazing firework show at the Sydney Opera House. If you want an even more intense view of the fireworks, go on a cruise across the Sydney Harbor.
New York, USA
A legendary spot for winter celebrations and iconic for its New Year’s Eve party in Times Square, New York should definitely be on your bucket list. Book a charter flight early to New York City ahead of time as the demand can be huge and it can be difficult to find something last minute. If you can’t find a flight directly into NYC then try getting one to a nearby city and making the trip into NYC via train or Uber.
Few New Year’s Eve street celebrations can be as exciting as the one in Times Square when millions of people from every corner of the world shout the countdown as the ball drops in one united voice. It is a great tribute to the backbone of the New York spirit: heterogeneous communities bringing a diverse city together.
Enter the New Year with a bang by going on a trip to Amsterdam. This beautiful, wild city has plenty of events you can attend. For instance, you can keep it classy and show up at a black tie event, or hit the dance floor at a warehouse rave.
If you plan on spending your New Year’s Eve like the locals, then you should go out on the streets. You will find plenty of cheerful groups, having warm dough balls from the busy food trucks and heading somewhere to grab a drink.
Las Vegas, USA
If you want your New Year’s Eve party to be memorable, there’s no other place to be than Las Vegas. You can start the fun from the moment you’ll step on the plane. Book a charter flight to Sin City, and you will avoid long lines on public airports, uncomfortable transit transportation, waiting times, inflexible flight schedules and crammed aircraft with not a lot of fun options. An air charter company can provide much more than a means of transportation, but also comfort and privacy.
The Las Vegas Strip will host numerous parties, events, and shows. It is hard to decide where to stop and to attend since you have so many options. Fireworks are launched from seven spots across the valley, so you will enjoy a fabulous show, no matter where you are. You can even book a helicopter tour to see them up close.
If you are a romantic at heart, then Paris is surely a city you would love to visit any time of the year. But did you ever consider spending the New Year’s Eve in the City of Lights? Now that you think about it, it’s a perfect fit, right?
Paris has such a diverse and glamorous nightlife that it’s impossible not to find the perfect party for you and your group. You could spend a night to remember at one of the notorious theaters in Paris, watching cabaret accompanied by a live orchestra. Or you can go straight for the magic of the burlesque, in its home city. A night at the Moulin Rouge will leave an unforgettable mark on the start of a New Year. We’re almost sure that you won’t stop smiling and dancing until the dawn.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
