Sydney, Australia
This is always one of the most exciting places to be on New Year’s Eve because it is the first major city in the world to welcome the New Year. The highlight of the Sydney New Year’s festivities is the amazing fireworks show that lights up Sydney Harbour when midnight arrives. The best way to experience this amazing spectacle is on a boat out on the water, basking in the magnificence of the fireworks show and its reflection on the water.

Tokyo, Japan
The next major world city to ring in the New Year after Sydney, Tokyo is also one of the best. The New Year is the biggest holiday of the year for the Japanese. The country basically shuts down for an entire week, and the streets fill with revelers and festivals. Guests are always welcomed with open arms. The Japanese lose their traditional shyness with foreigners during the New Year celebrations, so it is the perfect time of year for visitors to come.
