Every year, the New Year’s eve is celebrated with impressive fireworks, local traditions and extravagant spectacle across India. This is an exciting time, an opportunity for a new beginning and celebration of what we have achieved in the year gone by. While most of us are preparing ourselves to bid adieu to 2016, the question that comes to our mind is, “How?”. Every year partying the night away in the same club, amongst the same bunch of people gives us the feeling of deja vu, which is hard to escape. With the new beginning though, it would be an amazing thing to challenge yourself and go somewhere unknown.

From breathtaking mountains to coral beaches and soothing deserts, India is home to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world. So, here’s a list of places where you can ring in the New Year in style.

For Mountain Lovers:

1. Manali

This destination is for all the cool minded people, both literally and figuratively. The best thing about celebrating New Year’s eve in Manali is lingering in old Manali amidst snow covered streets and sipping on some hot chocolate, or having a private celebration with your friends, family or beloved. The snow and the good vibes is something to look forward to in this hill retreat.

2. Shimla

Combining the best of both worlds, Shimla is a perfect place to celebrate the New year’s eve. With the chill winds brushing through you and a view of snow covered mountains, you are surely going to enjoy your time here. Easy access to the multitudes of new year parties at various hotels in Shimla is another added advantage to the travellers.

For Beach Lovers:

1. Andaman Islands

Whether you are a party animal or want to celebrate New Year on a secluded beach, Andamans is where you should be heading right now. Home to pristine white sand beaches, crystal clear water and everything beautiful, Andaman will take your celebrations up a notch.

2. Goa

Bring in the New Year with a bang at Goa, the hottest party destination of India. With cheap booze, beach shacks and parties (like everywhere), Goa is the hottest destination to be at this time of the year. The beaches where you can party like an animal are Vagator, Baga, Anjuna and Palolem, to name a few.

For History Enthusiasts

1. Jaisalmer

A night in a tent by the bonfire at the vast expanse of sand dunes! Sounds dreamy? Well, this is what Jaisalmer has to offer. Popularly known as the ‘Golden City’, Jaisalmer is much more than what meets the eye. There’s so much to explore and experience in the city that you cannot have a single dull moment during your stay.

2. Jaipur

A fitting example of Rajasthani culture, Jaipur is a place where you can celebrate New Year’s eve with an olden twist. Check into a heritage property in the city and walk around the magnificent lawn, watch the dancing fireworks and enter the New Year like a royalty.

So, what’s your go-to destination for the New Year’s eve?
