Happy New Year, well hopefully.

Is it getting to the time of the year again when all your thoughts start to focus on “the biggest” party of the year? You know the one where you get invites about 3 months out and turn them down because you think something better will come along and you don’t want to over commit?  Yes we are talking about New Years,  the one night in the year where people will do almost anything to make it “the best new years ever”.But we want to de-stress your approach and open you up to the world of possibilities that await you in this list of the Top Ten places to party for new years.  Sure you might need a passport and you might need to save some cash to get to these places.  But commit early, forget about the $50 per week coming out of your account to pay for the trip and be ready to live the NY’s dream at these destinations.

  1. Rio de Janeiro – You are going to be fighting the crowds but once you get over this and get involved in the euphoric party atmosphere there will be no turning back.
  2. Sydney – Not only will you get to see one of the more amazing firework displays but you can also carry on in to the wee hours and any number of the fantastic clubs.
  3. New Orleans – Whether it’s Frenchmen Street or Bourbon Street you are going to have an amazing time in amongst this eclectic brew of bohemian atmosphere, music and drinking.
  4. Berlin – This city is perfect all year round if you are looking to party but on New Years it kicks it up a notch.  Just be sure yo get down to the Brandenburg Gate a couple of hours before midnight.
  5. Buenos Aires – City of the beautiful people with an atmosphere that you can’t help but get involved with.  Be ready to welcome in the first dawn of the new year as it’s going to be a late one.
  6. Tokyo – Prepare yourself for a different new years when visiting Tokyo.  This urban jungle of gadgetry and quirk comes alive with anything and everything an avid party goer requires.
  7. New York – A bit cliche and overcrowded, yes. But the time honored tradition of partying in Time Square is synonymous with New Years the world over.
  8. Barcelona – It might be winter in this beautiful city but it does not mean that the locals take their celebrations any less seriously.
  9. Edinburgh – The chances are it’s going to be quite cold.  But if you wrap up warm and pack a little single malt whisky then you should be fine amongst the hundreds of thousands of party goers celebrating Hogmanay (New Years) in and around Edinburgh.
  10. Vancouver – Another cold city to celebrate New Years. But Vancouver has so much to offer before, after and during New Years that if you get the opportunity, take it.  If it sucks you can always pop up to Whistler for more debauchery:)
