New Year’s Eve is undoubtedly the biggest party of the year, but where is the perfect place to be when the clock strikes midnight?
From breath-taking firework displays to dazzling parades, we’re not the only ones who know how to celebrate in style. I’ve done some research and found three destinations that go all out for their New Year’s Eve parties.
Times Square has to be the most iconic place for a New Year’s celebration, and it’s one of the biggest parties in the world. One million people descend on the square to watch the famous Waterford crystal ball drop at midnight and the atmosphere is electric. You can buy tickets which give you admission to the square along with entry to the best bars and clubs in the Times Square area; prepare yourself for a party like no other.
If you've ever been to you'll know what an incredible country it is. The New Year's Eve beach parties in Phuket are legendary, thanks to the top acts that perform live on a stage suspended over the sea. In Phuket Town, they have a 3 day countdown festival which starts on the 29th December. Highlights include concerts, contests and food stalls and the festival culminates in a huge firework display at midnight on the 31st.
In Bangkok, the festivities vary depending on what district you choose, but you can expect internationally acclaimed DJ’s, ultra-chic nightclubs and spectacular firework displays.
As you would probably imagine, certainly has no shortage of New Year celebrations and more than 300, 000 people gather for this epic night. The famous strip is closed to all traffic to become the location for one giant party, then all the casino’s join together to produce a choreographed fireworks display which puts your average display to shame. In the many hotels, bars and clubs along the strip, you’ll find some of the hottest entertainment around; just make sure you dress to impress.
