Best Travel Destinations for Celebrating the New Year

I’m trying to put together in a list some travel destinations to celebrate on the New Year’s Eve. The list doesn’t include necessarily the most popular destinations by certain criteria, but mostly the locations I would love to visit someday.

Niagara Falls, Canada. The celebration of the New Year in a stunning setting is what makes Niagara Falls so attractive. "Party in Niagara" is organized annually by the Niagara Parks Commission, and the event provides an outdoor alcohol-licensed area, food and drink stalls, and spectacular fireworks over the waterfalls. Held annually in Queen Victoria Park, the event attracts around 30,000 people each year. Be sure to stop by Clifton Hills, the major tourist promenade in the town, where local and international musicians perform.

Tokyo, Japan. For the ones wanting to celebrate ahead of schedule, Tokyo is the perfect place to go. The festivities take place from the 29th of December and often till the 4th of January, where you can sing, dance or watch fireworks which mark the entrance in a new year.

Bangkok, Thailand. Thailand is the only country in the world to celebrate the New Year three times annually: once in January for the Chinese New Year, once in April for the Thai New Year and finally at the end of December, as the Western New Year has been accepted as another night to do some serious partying at the many clubs and bars in the city.

Sydney, Australia. Another exciting place to have a memorable New Year celebration is Sydney, the major attraction being the amazing display of fireworks along with music playing, against the backdrop of the Sydney Harbor. Over a million visitors gather here every New Year's Eve, trying to get the best spot to view the fireworks.

London, England. New Year’s Eve party cruises along the Thames are very popular in London, whilst people gather at the London Eye to watch huge fireworks in the wait for Big Ben to chime at midnight.
