If you could spend NYE anywhere in the world, where would you go?

OK Trippy. The sky is the limit. If you could choose anywhere in the world to take in the New Year, where would you go and why? Looking to make a trip of it this year and open to ALL destinations, price ranges, and cultures. Go!

    I can't speak from experience, but I've heard the place to be on New Year's Eve is Jost Van Dyke Island, in the British Virgin Islands. I mean to do that one of these years.

    Jillian, it depends a lot on what you like... Secluded vs w/ crowd... City vs countryside... Party vs peaceful... But if you like to have fun... Brazil is the best place for NYE. The date has a very strong importance for brazilians... And everyone tries to go to the coast to celebrate midnight near or at a beach. If money is no object, my recommendations are Brazilian Atlantic Islands: Fernando de Noronha and Atol das Rocas Reserves, or Trancoso, both in Northeast Brasil. The historic towns and incredible beaches around these places give you lots of daytime opportunities and the NYE parties on the sand are quite spectacular... with music and fun well after the first rays of sun have peeked above the ocean's horizon. Have a blast!

    As Peter pointed out, Jost Van Dyke Island at Foxy's Tamarind Bar is the second most popular NYE destination other than NYC. I hope to that one day but will probably hang out at Soggy Dollar BarSoggy Dollar Barinstead, as it is my favorite.

    This next NYE will be spent in Bangkok, so that should be exciting!Bangkok

    Sydney, Australia is where I'm planning on ringing in 2016. I just need to get a few more things into place first. I flew to London last year to celebrate 2015 and it was incredible. I lucked out and found a room available at Marriott County Hall, which included front row access to the incredible fireworks display at midnight. I would love to do London again this year, but I don't want to find myself trying to recreate last year's celebration. I figure a new destination for New Year's Eve allows me the chance to create new, special memories.

    Buzios, is/was the best NYE I've sent in my entire life. You ask me why: The weather, the inexpensive hotel/pousada, the beach at night, especially at midnight when all locals -I mean thousands of people, traditionally wearing all-white or yellow clothing, stepping over seven waves and throwing the long-stem white lily in the water for good luck, and after that roaming the island on a lovely parade drinking, laughing, singing and listening to loud music until dawn.

    I guess I am a bit different when it comes to this. Even with a "sky's the limit" budget I want to spend NYE with great friends. Be it a backyard porch, a sailboat or even an apartment. It is the long time friends that make it special.

    Hello Jillian! I would choose Quebec City, Victoria or Ganges. Both cities are spectacular on NYE. If you choose Quebec spend the night at Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. If you decide that British Columbiais your destination, I will definitely recommend Hastings House Country House Hotel. Lovely places at all times!
