2022 has already passed its halfway mark and what a couple of months we’ve had so far. It’s almost time for new resolutions, midnight kisses, fireworks and that ultimate night out with friends or family! If you're a strategist like me who likes to plan ahead for the New Year celebrations, then grab a cup of coffee and read this brief list of the best places to ring in the New Year 2023.
Being one of the, if not the first major city to welcome the New Year, it’s only natural Sydney is on top of this list. The main event in the Emerald City of Australia is the firework display, which is dubbed as one of the most spectacular sights in the world. They can be best viewed onboard the New Year cruises on Sydney Harbour, which is a hot attraction during this season. A steal of a deal, you can indulge in a deluxe dinner with premium drinks along with exclusive views and a live cabaret show, all in an ambient and crowd-free setting. There are also several other events in and around the city centre, including the NYE event at Taronga Zoo, aerial flyovers and other late night parties that usually last till' dawn. From classy Sydney New Year’s Eve cruises to all-out bashes inside the CBD, this is one of the best places to be for New Year.
Ah, the city of love! If by fortune you get to spend your honeymoon and New Year's Eve together, then don’t even bother looking for options, Paris would be your ideal answer. This romantic getaway city is a magical destination offering world-class dining, a vibrant party scene, amazing fireworks, and of course, a chance to sip champagne while gazing at the legendary Eiffel Tower. Champ Elysees is one of the places to be if you're looking for parties that last till late or if you're keen on admiring the firework display that goes off at midnight then book a river cruise along the Seine. Nonetheless, even simply being in the city during the blissful winter season is an experience worth a thousand words.
There’s never a more perfect way to ring in the New Year than being one of the first persons in the entire world to do so. This secret (maybe not so secret in recent times) island nation in the central pacific is the first place in the world to welcome the New Year! It’s like plummeting into the future! Tourism has been on the rise here in recent years but the island is considered an untouched gem; there’s not much to do here than explore the natural landscapes. You can spend the last days of the year diving into the splendid coral gardens, taking a scenic flight tour, bird watching or even making a seasonal trip to the treasured Christmas Island!
Vegas. All those movies you saw flashing back to you eh? The city that parties nonstop, every night of the year, certainly knows how to host a New Year’s Eve worth remembering. With more parties, hotels, nightclubs, casinos and strip clubs than you can possibly fathom, it’s almost inevitable not to celebrate in style. It’s easy to spend time in this Sin City, but how your evening unfolds lies in your hands and you’d surely want to live the life in The Hangover! Maybe you can start with a massage and a soothing mani-pedi along The Strip, or you can relish a luxe meal before catching the many concerts, parties or casinos. And when the clock finally strikes midnight you can either join the massive block outdoors or wade your way through Fremont Street and watch the fireworks high above the neon lights.
