New Year's Eve Around the World

By Viator, November 2015

Ring in the New Year in style! New Year's is the perfect opportunity to experience some of the best Viator has to offer. With so much in the world to see and do, why not get a head start on 2016?

New York, New York
Head to New York City to get the VIP treatment! The most in-the-know New Yorkers make their way into the New Year with a spectacular view of Lower Manhattan's fireworks from a boat. On the Viator VIP: Exclusive NYC New Year's Eve Luxury Dinner Cruise, you get a chance to see the skyline from a private yacht and toast to 2016 with dinner, dancing and the best view of New York City. With plenty of other opportunities to celebrate in the city that never sleeps, revelers can find the perfect party for their New Year.

Sydney, Australia
New Year’s Eve in Sydney is always a spectacle to remember. Unlike some other holidays which can be overlooked, avoided or under-appreciated, Australians consistently ring in the New Year with verve. Part of this is due to January’s ushering in of the annual Sydney Festival, during which the city comes alive with parties and celebrations. Whether with a scenic harbor cruise or a special night at the opera, Sydney is sure to be a festive place to greet the New Year.

Paris, France
Paris is the ultimate locale to ring in the New Year, so plan early if you’ll be in the City of Light! In addition to opportunities to watch the New Year's fireworks and illuminations, some of the best celebrations are at Paris' famous cabarets: Moulin Rouge, Crazy Horse and Paradis Latin. With champagne and iconic entertainment, you’re guaranteed to enjoy New Year's in Paris.

San Francisco, California
San Francisco loves a good party, and New Year’s is no different. Concert venues, clubs, hotels, restaurants and bars hold special events, but perhaps there’s no more classic way to celebrate the New Year than by watching fireworks illuminate the beautiful bay. For great views plus dining and dancing, minus the waterfront crowds, a New Year’s Eve Dinner Cruise on the San Francisco Bay is hard to beat.

London, England
London never fails to impress at the close of the year. Fireworks over Westminster and Big Ben's countdown to midnight would make any local want to party the night away. For those who simply want to see the spectacular London skyline while ringing in 2016, a cruise down the Thames may be in order.

Las Vegas, Nevada

As you might imagine, Las Vegas likes to go big for New Year’s Eve. More than 300,000 people converge on the Strip and, as if the famous stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard weren’t already epic enough, fireworks are coordinated from the rooftops of various hotel-casinos and synched to a soundtrack for a grand, very Vegas display.

Vienna, Austria

Celebrate the New Year in cultured fashion in Vienna. Settle into an atmospheric Austrian wine tavern and enjoy live Viennese and international music before toasting to fireworks. Or enjoy a classical concert in the Renaissance-style Kursalon Vienna concert hall, popular among the 19th-century Viennese elite.

Oahu, Hawaii

Waikiki on Oahu is always a happening place to be, but even more so on New Year's Eve. Firework displays off the beach draw crowds to the waterfront. Avoid the throngs and get on the tranquil water instead, where you’ll have an excellent view of the fireworks on a cruise. Or step off the street and enjoy a special New Year’s edition of Legends in Concert at the iconic Royal Hawaiian Center.

No matter where or how you celebrate, enjoy the fruits of the past year and Happy New Year from Viator!
