Can’t believe how incredibly fast that 2018 flew by. A whole year and it felt like it happened in the blink of an eye. As the end of the year approaches us everyone is starting to make their New Year’s Eve plans for ringing in the New Year and welcoming 2019. Traveling for New Year’s is always so much fun for me because it is so much fun to spend your holiday in a place that isn’t just your hometown. If you can make it to a big celebration/festival then it will make your holiday that much more fun. Here are 10 of the best and most unbelievable destinations that you can spend your New Year’s Eve throughout the world.
Sydney is absolutely beautiful and they host a huge fireworks display and celebration for the New Year. You can watch the firework show at Sydney Harbour and enjoy the beautiful show. Plus it is also Summer time there during the New Year which means it is nice and warm for ringing in your New Year. Not to mention because of how time zones work, you will be the first to ring in the New Year in Sydney.
London is an amazing city and they have an incredible New Year’s Eve fireworks show that you can watch at Stately London along the Thames. But be sure to buy your tickets in advance as they do sell out quickly!
Of course you can’t exclude New York City from the list. It is one of the most famous New Year’s Eve celebration cities in the world and is quite often televised. From watching on TV you always want to know what that experience would be like! Just keep in mind, it gets extremely busy and packed like sardines in Times Square but the view and whole experience is truly amazing.
If you’re looking to be the closing lineup for ringing in the New Year then you will want to do so in Pago Pago in the South Pacific. You will be the last place to strike midnight and ring in that New Year with a fun celebration!
Disney is a truly magical place but even more so around the holiday season. A great way to spend your New Year’s Eve would be filled with a day of fun at the park followed by the magnificent firework and projection show to end your night. Get there early though because they do tend to hit capacity on holidays!
Scotland is another beautiful country to visit if you have never been you may want to try it out. There are so many fun activities and festivities to celebrate ringing in the New Year and their celebrations are three days long. The firework show at midnight on New Year’s Eve is a spectacular sight to see as it features 4.5 tons of fireworks that are shot over the Edinburgh Castle, it truly is amazing to see.
If you want to mix the feel of the New York City New Year’s bash with the traditional cultures of China then you may want to schedule a visit to Hong Kong this New Year. There is a beautiful fireworks display over the skyline and you will see the famous ball drop just like in NYC.
Cape Town is an absolutely beautiful city and a great place to bring in your New Year. Again, Cape Town is entering the Summer season so you can certainly enjoy your New Year in the beautiful warm weather and enjoy an extravagant fireworks show with fun festivities around you.
Berlin is known to be a party city so as you can probably imagine, they know how to celebrate. They bring in the New Year with a celebration known as Silvester that features the Party Mile including food, festivities, and shows/music. The fireworks show at midnight is incredible and the party continues after the show is over!
Another party city is of course Las Vegas. The whole Vegas strip becomes one big New Year’s celebration filled with food, festivities, and music. At midnight there are so many fireworks being sent off that you are bound to see them from wherever you are, it makes for a great night!
