Planning Ahead? Here are the 4 Best Place to Celebrate the Next New Year

Planning Ahead? Here are the 4 Best Place to Celebrate the Next New Year Published on .

New Years Eve 2017 Getaways

While the New Year may have passed in the blink of an eye, it is never too early to start planning your next Hogmanay celebration. After all, the very best experiences tend to be booked-up quickly.

So if you do intend to see out 2017 and usher into 2018 in style, here are four of the destinations that will help your celebrations to go with a genuine swing:

New Years City Getaways 2017

1. Edinburgh, Scotland

In 2015, an impressive 148,000 people from more than 70 countries joined the famous, three-day Hogmanay festival in Edinburgh. Considered to be the spiritual home of the classic New Years’ celebration, iconic locations such as Parliament Square often come alive with colour and noise in an explosive event like no other.

If you do want to spend the New Year in Edinburgh, however, you will need to book quickly, as stellar hotels such as The Balmoral in Princes Street tend to reach full capacity long before the winter months start.

2. Hong Kong

Next up is Hong Kong, which is an increasingly popular destination for anyone in search of a truly unique New Years experience. Offering spectacular views of Victoria Harbour and a series of breath-taking rooftop bars, this destination is even home to the second tallest sky-scrapper in the world (the Ritz-Carlton) which houses the magnificent Ozone Bar on the 118th floor.

A trip to Hong Kong is also deceptively inexpensive too, as most New Year travel can burn a whole in the bottom of your wallet, the cost of a business class flight to Hong Kong has gradually fallen over the last few years.

3. Sydney, Australia

We were considering listing London next, but the exaggerated cost of New Years’ celebrations and festivities in the capital that little bit less appealing. Instead, why not travel to new and exotic lands, with Sydney offering the ideal location for anyone who enjoys warmer weather, boat parties and stunning, moonlit picnics.

Whether you travel on a cruise beneath the arches of the iconic Sydney Harbour or motor out to the picturesque Cockatoo Island, Sydney is home to a long list of New Years’ experiences that will appeal to everyone.

4. Goa

If you find yourself bored of traditional city breaks and the usual New Years’ fare, you may want to consider visiting a far-flung and exotic location such as Goa. Renowned for its large-scale beach parties and spectacular fireworks displays, its stunning climate and raucous New Years’ festivities also make Goa popular with younger revellers.

From our perspective, the Anjuna beach party is the biggest and the most spectacular, with golden sand and stunningly-lit palm trees providing the perfect backdrop for a New Years’ celebration. There are other options too, however, some of which are smaller and offer a more intimate festival for travellers.
