Even though most of the major tourist sites close down for that week, the streets of Tokyo, as well as, all restaurants and clubs are packed with people. The city is jumping with loads of fireworks, dancing and singing. Join locals and enter the New Year in traditional Japanese way: eating Toshikoshi Soba (New Years Eve Noodle) and listening to Juya No Kane (The Watch-Night Bell). The noodle, being long, symbolizes long and healthy life. The Watch-Night Bell, an analog to a countdown, rings 108 times at the temples all over Japan symbolizing getting rid of unhappiness, poorness and etc. On January 1st, visit the Imperial Palace, since it is one of the two days only when the Palace opens to the public.

      Для исключения ожога мягкие ткани изолируются с помощью геля на основе синтетических смол. После этого на зубы наносится отбеливающий гель с содержанием перекиси водорода (25-38% перекиси водорода). Затем зубы подвергаются воздействию источника света в течение 6 - 15 минут. Последние технические достижения свели к минимуму нагрев и ультрафиолетовое излучение, что позволяет тратить меньше времени на подготовку пациента к процедуре. Лазерное отбеливание зубов может быть сделано примерно за 30 - 60 минут, т.е. за одно посещение врача. Длительность процедуры и рекомендации по последующему уходу зависят от состояния зубов пациента.

      Sydney is always a great option! Amazing every year and caters for everyone. Can do the family thing at the harbour with the atmosphere starting early in the day and kids fireworks at 9pm then midnight fireworks are the best I have ever seen! Or can have a quiet night and party all day the next day at field day music festival. Thailand NYE is also brilliant! I highly recommend Phi Phi Island or Koh Phangan full moon party for beach parties where drinks and music are aplenty and the weather is amazing!!!

      I don't know how you can list London anywhere near the top of this list! I live in London and most pubs and bars charge entry fees on new year's eve simply because they can, and still they are uncomfortably full. Transportation slows down considerably, and you either have to get a place by the river and wait hours to see the fireworks, or push through crowds, and then the display lasts about 2 minutes! Go somewhere warm!

      I love Paris, I lived there for 2 years but it is one of the worst NYE ever. They no longer do fireworks and are so worried about security concerns and youth from the ghettos coming in and ripping up the place the whole night has a distinctly military-esque feel. This is obviously a heavily American-centered list as I would say take off Orlando and Toronto. Also, to not mention Berlin and Rio de Janeiro (with millions of people in white on the beaches of Copa Cabana for the firework show) makes me think this author hasn't been anywhere!

      Edinburgh is the best place for New Year. I cant believe someone suggested London here! England is not known for celebrating New Year really, that is until people in England saw the Americans love New Year.

      New Year celebrations in Edinburgh carry on for days after. Its probably the biggest holiday event in Scotland and NOT to be missed at all. One of the worlds biggest street parties in a beautiful city. Its also a very cultural thing so i would put Edinburgh at number 1.

      Being from London I have a particular affinity for it. However, Tokyo sounds lovely. I am game for that trip. Happy New Year to one and all..

      Hi Wanderlust,

      Great hub! I have always dreamed of spending a New Year's Eve in Times Square but I don't think I could handle the crowds! All good ideas though, and if I ever find myself traveling somewhere for New Year's I will definitely consider these places.
