Five places to spend New Year's Eve

17 Dec 2014 by Clement Huang


LOCATION Victoria Harbour

WHAT TO EXPECT A fantastic pyrotechnic show that ranks among the best in the world.

WHY IT’S COOL The fireworks follow Hong Kong's unique A Symphony of Lights show, where 45 buildings join together in a carefully coordinated light and laser display at 8pm.



LOCATION Brandenburg Gate

WHAT TO EXPECT A “Party Mile” filled with music stages and food and beverage tents offering local favourites such as sausages and mulled wine.

WHY IT’S COOL The German capital is well known as a party city. Expect non-stop laughter and thrills as more than a million people flock to Brandenburg Gate to welcome 2015.




WHAT TO EXPECT An exciting party with thousands of performers, and a countdown to the new year signalled by the chimes of London's most famous clock tower.

WHY IT’S COOL The three-hour extravaganza features fireworks, singalongs and the iconic backdrop of the River Thames.




LOCATION Times Square

WHAT TO EXPECT The traditional New Year's Eve ball will descend from Times Square to signal the beginning of the new year – one of the most well-recognised international celebrations, in addition to performances by some of today’s hottest singers.

WHY IT’S COOL Who doesn’t want to be a part of a massive party that features star-studded musical performances, fireworks, and confetti? 



LOCATION Eiffel Tower

WHAT TO EXPECT A beautiful light show on the historic structure

WHY IT’S COOL Even though there’s no official fireworks display for New Year’s Eve in Paris, the colourful light show from one of the world's most romantic settings is not to be missed.
