Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour lights up with lasers, choreographed LEDs explosion and fireworks along with the amazing music on the tick of new year. This extraordinary show can easily be enjoyed on one of many rooftops in that area and traditional junk on the water.
Other than that you can stay in Hong Kong in the places that are relatively quiet but allows you to enjoy as much new year. One of which is the Kowloon side of the water which gives the same amount of view and enjoyment, with much less crowd. Wooloomooloo, a famous steakhouse in Tsim Sha Tsui offers the view from its 21st floor that can be enjoyed from the balcony.

USA, New York City
Among many amusing places on New York, Times Square may not be on top of the list of recommended places to spend last moments of 2018, but it cannot be ignored that it is archetypal NYE in NY.

Moreover, at Prospect Park, there is free live music and fireworks. If you want, you can go for something edgier like the house of Yes in up-and-coming Bushwick where live sculptures and aerial acrobats all night.

The capital of Scotland is well-known for the three days Hogmanay Extravaganza starts off on 30th December. What makes this event unique in its own way it the Viking-style torchlights that enlighten along the Royal Mile. The awaited nights includes Franz Ferdinand 7 BV concerts in the gardens, which wraps up in time that gives unmatched views of midnight fireworks over Edinburg Castle. The neighbouring street party dances on into 2019 under the lead of Judge Jules. This event is followed by live music in the New Year’s Day and traditional fancy-dress dip in freezing Firth of Fourth ( commonly known as loony Dook).
The natives of Edinburg have the doubting nature about the weather hence not many of them could be found at the official Hogmanay festivities. They would rather hedge their bets with indoor glee before trapping a free spot to enjoy the Castle’s midnight display. Numerous great pubs can be found on boho Stockbridge that offers laid-back pub grub added with the facility. The tradition continues with wee dram or two which is relished by folk music at The Baillie Bar, which is the nearby basement joint. Tailing behind is a trip to Inverleith Park, which gives the unparalleled view of the countdown fireworks in the city.
The infamous Sydney Harbour’s firework extravaganza is relished by more than a million people gathered across the foreshore. However, the idea to join the boatfuls of partygoers floating on the water top that. You can easily rent out a boat and bring along your own bubbles that lead to starting the countdown early. Landlubbers may favour booking an outside table at one of the waterfalls restaurants in the front row at the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
If you have a mood for something different then just plan your day at the Cockatoo Island and setup moonlight picnic in the planning of the show. The option always stays there to glamp for the night, as long as you already book it in advance.
At the strike of 12, the Town Hall Square is filled up with the rowdy of usually quite Danes, BYOB (bring your own bottle) of popping champagne corks, fizzing Roman candles and whooshing rockets.

Besides, there are plenty of glogg stalls to serve you liquid courage.

People of Barcelona are famous for being night owl, hence they really don’t really gather up until about 11 pm. That is when the gathering assemble at Plaça de Catalunya to watch the pyrotechnics on Montjuïc (a famous hill in Spain, Barcelona). Just a few yards from there, a grand dance party is held until 6 am in Poble Espanyol-an open-air architectural museum.
Eating grapes on every chime is weird enough-the whole crowd really do it. Another tradition that highlights the celebration in Barcelona is throwing their Cava bottles into the middle of the square at the ring of the arrival of New year. The whole crowd actually do it. If it sounds a little frightening, try the most popular club; Pasha, that keep rocking from 12:01 am to 06:45 am. You can even go to Sala Apolo which is loved for resisting the scandalous New year price hikes. The party starts here at 12:30 am.
