I’ve celebrated it in the Canary Islands, I’ve celebrated it in Cape Town and I’ve even celebrated it in Sydney Australia, but I am still searching for the best place in the world to celebrate New Year’s Eve, where we can dance the night away, watch a fireworks extravaganza, and make all those resolutions we have no intention of keeping!
A time for “out with the old, and in with the new”, a new year provides us all the opportunity to start afresh, make new plans, and even make life-changing decisions, and so it is only right that we see in the new year in style, and go out of the last one with a bang!
There are several destinations sitting on my New Year’s Eve hotspot list such as Rio de Janeiro, Mount Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp, but here are a few other suggestions I found on the web today… Which one would you choose?
New York, New York
Watching the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop in Times Square must make for a memorable night, if you can stand the freezing temperatures!
I am British and I have never spent New Year’s Eve in London – is that even legal? Listening to the chimes of Big Ben while standing on the banks of the Thames with 250,000 others sounds like a good start to a New Year to me!
Las Vegas is the party capital of the world, and so one can only imagine how wild things get on New Year’s Eve – Party!!
Rio de Janeiro
This one is right up there on my own list, and the idea of spending 31st December on Copacabana Beach with two million all-singing, all-dancing Brazilians sounds like fun to me!
If your idea of the perfect New Year’s Eve includes a beach and a bottle of something fizzy, the Maldives is a great place to start!
