One of the first cities to bring in the New Year, Sydney offers an unforgettable experience where people gather to watch as fireworks and lasers are launched from the length of the spectacular Harbour Bridge, the roof of the Opera House, and the barges on the river.
For the best vantage points why not gather a group of friends and cruise the harbour by boat, including dinner, music and champagne, or splurge out and make a reservation at an award-winning waterfront restaurant for spectacular views, fine wine and multi-course degustation menus.

It’s hot in Rio de Janeiro at New Year, which is why the beach is such a popular place to party, with dancing, Champagne and fireworks. Réveillon is Rio’s fabulous end of year celebration that takes place along the stretch of Copacabana Beach.
Celebrations start early in the day, revellers dress up in white, and live musical acts perform the famous Brazilian samba, and international pop stars drive the crowd wild. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the beach is lively with people, and the streets, bars, and restaurants are buzzing with wild parties, dancing, and loud music.
The dynamic city of Bangkok is an exhilarating place to see in the New Year, attracting people from all over to join in the biggest countdown party at CentralWorld, with live music from well-known Thai bands and DJ’s, along with a winter beer garden, and an endless collection of food stalls. Drink champagne as the fireworks burst with vivid colours in the night sky before heading to one of the cities clubs.
