New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and it has been always something that we are all excited about. The fireworks, the festivities, the countdown, everything about New Year’s Eve are always special.
Too bad, because of the Coronavirus that has been around for the recent two years now, we can kiss our usual New Year’s Eve goodbye.
Even though we might not able to go anywhere to celebrate New Year’s Eve, let’s not lose hope that we might be able to travel for the next New Year’s Eve in 2022.
Here are some places you should definitely visit to celebrate the new year!
1. London, United Kingdom
First of all, we got London. The capital city of the United Kingdom offers an astonishing new year experience. This city has a fireworks display that is launched from the London Eye.
Interestingly, the fireworks can be seen from rooftops and balconies all across London. So if you’re visiting London on New Year’s Eve and you don’t feel like leaving your comfy hotel room, you still can enjoy the fireworks display.
But, if you want to get the real experience of watching the fireworks display, get out there and search for the best location. The best views for this fireworks display are from Westminster Bridge and the opposite of the London Eye, which is the north embankment of the River Thames.
2. Paris, France

Paris also offers the chance to sip Champagne on the Champs-Elysees on New Year’s Eve. And we can enjoy Eiffel Tower’s light show around midnight.
Paris has Montmartre, which offers spectacular views of the entire Paris skyline for people who look for a lovely place to spend the evening.
Even though there are no epic fireworks displays like the one we would see in London or Sydney, it still has a pretty good firework display on New Year’s Eve.
It also has great parties throughout the city on New Year’s Eve and people would light off their own fireworks from the Champs-Elysees.
