As I said in my previous post, the legend states that the night between the years is what matters most and it decides how your whole year will be like. So be sure to celebrate in style. Since I’m from Europe and winters are cold and snowy, I cannot imagine a better way to spend NYE than enjoying a glass of champagne on a tropical beach. So let’s see together the most popular NYE destinations in the world.
- Dubai, UAE
Known all over the world for being the most luxurious destination, it is also on the top of the list for New Year’s Eve. Sparkling skyscrapers, fine dining restaurants and sandy beaches. Should I also mention the glamorous yacht parties or the lavish nightclubs? Dubai is for sure the perfect place to party and spend some money. And what better night to do this than the night between the years?
!Tip 1: Dubai is known worldwide for the spectacular fireworks display that gather thousands of people.
!Tip 2: Be sure to book in advance and prepare your credit cards. This won’t go unnoticed. Try the Atlantis Royal Gala at Atlantis The Palm Dubai for a glamorous experience or White Club for one hell of a party.
!Tip 3: A yacht party is mandatory for a true Dubai experience. Gather your best friends and prepare for the time of your life. Do not forget to pop some bottles of champagne! 🙂
Whether you choose the capital city or one of the many beaches in Thailand, you will sure have a memorable New Year’s Eve. Imagine yourself at a rooftop party admiring the city lights of Bangkok or enjoying a glass of champagne with your loved one on a sandy beach while watching the fireworks. As a plus, 30 degrees Celsius sound pretty damn good.
!Tip 1: You have a great variety of choices for rooftop parties in Bangkok. I recommend trying Sirocco & Sky Bar at Lebua State Tower, Vertigo or Above Eleven. These are my favorites! 🙂
!Tip 2: Surely, one of the most popular parties in Thailand is Full Moon Party on Ko Phangan. And it never gets crazier than for NYE. Check all the details here. http://newyearpartykohphangan.com/
!Tip 3: Do not forget to book at least a daytrip to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world: Maya Bay located on the famous Phi Phi Island.
- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
I do not think Rio de Janeiro needs more advertising! Everyone knows about the legendary Brazilian Carnival that fills the city every year. But Rio is also known for being one of the most visited destinations for NYE. As a plus this celebrations comes right during the heart of the summer season. The downside is that prices go up to the sky this time of the year, so hurry up and book your tickets.
!Tip 1: Copacabana Beach is the most famous place for celebration and fireworks display. Be ready to face the crowd!
!Tip 2: If you are not on a budget and you want to have a front row seat to the fireworks display, try booking a hotel with sea view! You will have the best party on your own balcony!
!Tip 3: If you want to start the year in style, take a helicopter ride above this beautiful city and enjoy the best panorama! After all, drones are so overrated 🙂
I’ve just got to my favorite destination since I am planning on spending there this NYE so I can’t wait to tell you more about this place. What I can tell you right now is that the island is known all over the world for stunning white sandy beaches and turquoise crystal clear waters. Can’t wait to discover more!
!Tip 1: If you are a wildlife lover, you can also go for an African safari in Tanzania. I recommend trying Serengeti National Park.
!Tip 2: For the adrenaline junkies, this place is paradise! You have a great variety of water sports to choose from: windsurfing, waterskiing, kite boarding, wake-boarding, parasailing, jet-skiing 🙂
!Tip 3: If you are into scuba diving, you should not miss Pemba Island, located 80km to the North East of Zanzibar Island.
Although I have never been to Australia, this place is definitely in my bucket list and I would love to discover it step by step. One of the best times to visit Sydney is New Year’s Eve. The stunning fireworks display is known all over the world so be sure to cross that off your list.
