Prague, Czech Republic

Head to the banks of the Vltava River at midnight on Dec 31st and celebrate the New Year in the Czech Republic.  Fireworks over Prague Castle, a beautiful stone castle built in the 9th century, are worth the visit alone.  Shops in Prague don’t close for New Year’s Eve, giving you access to countless markets and historical sights.

New South Wales, Australia

While large cities like Sydney have massive fireworks displays, other areas of New South Wales offer more secluded New Year’s celebrations.  Along the southern coastline of New South Wales, you can see shooting stars and have bonfires with your friends.  Away from the large Australian cities, places like South Durras and Narooma allow you to celebrate the New Year with the sounds of the sea and the solitude of nature.

Dublin, Ireland

Dublin is a town that knows how to party.  Around New Year’s time, fireworks fill the Dublin skies while fire breathers and stilt walkers fill the streets.  But as usual, the real action is found in Dublin’s lively pubs.  Kehoe’s, The Long Hall, and Hartigan’s are local favorites.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

The northern Thai city of Chiang Mai provides a perfect mix of cheap drinks and cultural adventures.  Spend the New Year in Chiang Mai’s comfortable 80 degree weather.  Check out great Thai rock concerts and keep your eyes glued to the skies as thousands of Chinese lanterns are released into the air.
