New Year’s Eve Holiday Suggestions

Still looking for something fun to do this New Year’s Eve? Why not ring in 2015 in a totally new place? There are loads of cities around the world that celebrate the New Year in style and sometimes getting away from the same old routine is exactly what you need to start fresh and anew!

Of course, with all sorts of unique New Year’s traditions all over the world, it can be tough to pick one holiday destination to spend the end of 2014. But that’s why we’ve put together a list of our top picks for an exciting New Year’s holiday that will suit all kinds of preferences:

1.  New York, USA

Everyone knows no one does New Years like New York City. The Times Square bash is watched by tens of thousands of people on TV every year and, just think, you could be there experiencing it first-hand! Nothing can beat the excitement of being a part of the buzzing crowd watching your favourite artists perform live and the exciting countdown to the ball drop at midnight.

Best for: Bucket listers.

2.  Paris, France

Renowned for its exquisite gastronomy, France has to be at the top of your list if you want to spend a glorious New Year’s Eve feasting like royalty. The buzzing city of Paris is also filled with a lively night scene that will ensure you party well into the wee hours of the January 1 like never before.

Best for: Food lovers.

3.  Sydney, Australia

Want to be the first of your friends to ring in the New Year? Sydney is your next holiday destination! With incredible fireworks and a stunning view of the harbour, it is tough to find other cities that usher in the New Year quite as well (and quite as early) as Sydney. Plus, with the pleasant summer weather, you can enjoy your days off work to explore one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Best for: Early birds.

4.  Cornwall, UK

Cornwall is the perfect place to usher in the beginning of 2015 if you are bringing along your little ones to celebrate as a family. With fireworks, cocktails for the adults, and activities for your little ones to have some fun of their own, it will be hard to find a more family-friendly place around! Plus, it’s right here at home, making all the packing and travelling that much simpler.

Best for: Families.

5.  Barbados, Caribbean

If you really want a change of scenery, the Caribbean is your destination. The white sandy beaches, beautiful warm weather, crystal clear waters and fresh cocktails make the perfect combination for ushering in 2015 in style. Barbados is widely known as the destination for some of the world’s A-list celebrities, so you know you’ll be in good company once 2015 rolls around.

Best for: Sun-seekers.

6. Devon, UK

Want to usher in the New Year with your S.O. in a quiet little place? Nothing says romance like a peaceful cottage home tucked away in the rolling countryside of Devon. Enjoy a walk on the beach, indulge in the beautiful natural scenery and make your New Year’s as unique and special as you wish in your charming log burner.

Best for: Love birds.

7.  Hong Kong, China

As the Chinese follow a different calendar, New Year’s Eve is celebrated on February 3 – perfect for those of us who got too caught up in life to remember to book our plane tickets or hotel stay for December 31. No worries though, Hong Kong celebrates the New Year like no other: there will be plenty of delicious food and lively parades to keep you partying for days.

Best for: Procrastinators.
