New Year's Eve Around the World

By Viator, November 2013

Ring in the New Year in style! New Year's is the perfect opportunity to experience some of the best that Viator has to offer.

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 2013 in high style, with dinner, dancing, and the best view of New York City. With plenty of other opportunities to celebrate in the city that never sleeps, any reveler can find the perfect party for their New Year.

New Year’s Eve in Sydney is always a spectacle to remember. Unlike some other holidays which can be overlooked, avoided, or under-appreciated, the Australians consistently ring-in the New Year with verve. Part of this is due to January ushering-in the annual Sydney Festival, in which the city comes alive with parties and celebrations on seemingly every corner-block. Most of these parties revolve, in some way or another, around the annual firework extravaganza and parade of lights held each year down in the beautiful Sydney Harbour. Whether with a fancy dinner or scenic harbor cruise, Sydney is sure to be a festive place to greet the new year.

Paris is the ultimate locale to ring in the new year, so plan early if you will be in the City of Lights! While there are plenty of opportunities to watch the New Year's fireworks and illuminations around the Eiffel Tower, some of the best celebrations are at Paris' famous cabarets - Le Lido, Moulin Rouge, and Paradis Latin. With champagne, a special New Year's menu, and iconic entertainment, you are guaranteed to enjoy New Year's in Paris.

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 2013, a cruise down the Thames may be in order.

No matter where or how you celebrate, enjoy the fruits of 2013! And whether you are in Melbourne, Hawaii, Whistler, Vienna, or beyond, Happy New Year from Viator!
