Did you think that New York was the only place that knows how to celebrate New Years? Think again.

1. Bangkok, Thailand 

Bangkok is quickly becoming one of the trendiest places to celebrate the holiday, where a Greeting Ball Tower about 52 feet high drops at the stroke of midnight as fireworks explode over the banks of the Chao Phraya River.

And get this—because the cost of living is so low in Thailand, drinks cost much less than what you’d regularly pay at your local bar. Happy Hangover.

2. Las Vegas Strip, Nevada 

Perhaps you want to stay in the States. I guarantee you that the Las Vegas strip certainly has just what you’re looking for. Living up to its party capital reputation, Vegas does NYE the only way it knows how—think crazy light displays, performances by top of the chart artists, and stunts by the world’s best acrobats.

If Vegas isn’t your scene, how about going somewhere where you’ll be one of the first people on the planet to celebrate the New Year? Sydney, Australia is a grand location to spend the New Year, as the city is host to some of the most advanced pyrotechnic displays that can be seen on the arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

3. Sydney Harbour, Australia 

A drop-dead gorgeous scene of 55 illuminated ships circuit Sydney Harbour, and if you’re here with a beau, one of the most romantic things to do is head to Sydney Harbour National Park, a typically tranquil spot to gaze at fireworks.
4. New Orleans, Louisiana

Food lovers, no need to worry—we’ve got you covered. Venture out to New Orleans and you’ll certainly delight in the way the South does New Years. Putting a spin on New York’s ball drop in Times Square, New Orleans actually drops a large gumbo pot in Jackson Square.

The morning after you’ve spent the entire night on Bourbon Street, take comfort in knowing that your hangover is about to be cured by the savory grub of New Orleans.

5. Rio De Janiero, Brazil

If you want more of a dance craze, look no further than Rio De Janeiro. Travel insiders and international partygoers alike know that Carnaval isn’t Brazil’s only decadent blowout—New Year’s Eve comes ridiculously close to matching this world-renowned festival.

What most people also don’t realize is that NYE happens to be summer in Brazil. This means beach gatherings that you’ve probably never even seen the size of—a true party scene.
