New York City

NYC during New Year’s Eve looks as decked out as its locals. New Year in New York is a big deal, as is evident from it many shows that are telecast on television, especially the ball drop in Times Square that countless people gather to witness. If you want a more romantic spin on things, book boat ride on New York harbour and catch a glimpse of wonderful midnight fireworks on Liberty Island.


How amazing would it be to welcome the New Year amid the chiming of the Big Ben! Londoners also gather by the Thames to see the splendid firework display and to participate in the exciting after parties. Later on New Year’s Day, you can take in colourful parades, floats, costumed dancers and a procession of the Queen’s horses! How regal is that!


Paris is a good idea any time, and during New Year it is one of the most beautiful destinations to be at. The City of Light is a sight for sore eyes on New Year’s Eve when the Eiffel Tower is lit up in a million sparkling lights! Paris also hosts spectacular street parties where they pop open bottles of champagne and trade kisses and chocolates!


Closer home are the parties in Goa that a majority of Indians race to in December. Goa is a party-goer’s paradise in December what with Christmas and New Year lined up. Nothing can beat Goa’s beach air mixed with aromas of authentic Goan food, alcoholic beverages flowing all around and people just out to have a good time! Book one of the fab hotels in Goa before you visit here during New Year though, as hotels will be booked to capacity!
