These 5 Cities Have the Most Spectacular New Year Celebrations in the World
The new year in Hong Kong is not celebrated in the city center but in Victoria Harbor. At this port hundreds of thousands of people gather to watch fireworks at the turn of the year. Uniquely, the fireworks eruption is adapted to the music that adds to the vibrant atmosphere. You who don't want to spend the new year jostling can see this view from the hotels around the harbor.
Did you know if Sydney was named the city with the best fireworks display in the world? Many people say the New Year in New York is more festive but the New Year celebrations in Sydney are actually attended by more people.
As one of the cities that celebrates the earliest new year, every year hundreds or maybe millions of people throng Sydney Harbor to see fireworks that appear above the famous Opera House and Harbor Bridge.
If you want to celebrate a new year party all night, then Tokyo can be the right choice. In Tokyo, to be exact, Yokohama, which is across the Tokyo bay, a new year party is held overnight. Another option is to visit one of the many temples in Tokyo. Here a monk will turn on the bells of the new year 108 times to cleanse yourself of all the bad luck in the past.
As one of the richest countries, it's no wonder that the New Year's celebration here is different from the new year in another place. In Dubai, people do not celebrate the new year by jostling on the streets but celebrating the new year on skyscrapers including the Burj Khalifa.
Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in Africa and even the world. And fireworks throughout the city make Cape Town look even more amazing. Usually Cape Point Vineyards is a favorite location for partying to celebrate the new year all night long.
