In what city should I spend New Year's Eve?
There are so many excellent options in which to bring in the New Year. But does one city sparkle over another?
There is no better place to spend New Years Eve than Las Vegas. Many people want to go to New York and stand in the freezing cold weather in Times Square. Yes, it is a lot of fun. However, you can have a fabulous time in Las Vegas, and not have to stand around all night in horrible weather. There are an endless number of activities, shows, casinos, restaurants and more. I suggest you try Las Vegas!
It depends completely on your own tastes and, of course, your budget.
The best places I have been;
Maui, but only if you are staying at the Royal Lahaina resort as they are the only ones with a fireworks permit. This may very well have changed by now.
If you REALLY love fireworks try a major Chinese city on the lunar new year, pure insanity!!! Imagine the "grand finally" at a major US fireworks display. Now imagine it going on 360* 24 hrs a day for 2 weeks. On the actual New Years Eve go to one of the really big temples with about a million or so Chinese. They place candles on an alter with incense. Pretty calm yeah? Except that there are so many that by nights end the fire is the size of a 3 story house and everyone young and old has to light of a string of huge firecrackers 4' in diameter.
Medellin, Colombia can be crazy fun.
I really tend to go to private parties on New Years. They are short on insanity but I think I have the best time with friends.
I suggest you to spend your time in Bukittinggi, Sumatera Barat, Indonesia. The city is located in high land, cool and fresh. If you want to see more how exotic Bukittinggi is, you may see the pictures or the videos on Bukittinggi from your browser. You will enjoy it.

What is the best place to spend new year's eve? So far my favorite has been the Costa del Sol. The parties last forever, everybody drinking and dancing on public parks, bars, discos, beach... great. Been in New York but I think I missed it completely! It was boring...

How do you spend New Year's Eve and New Year's Day?

No, I'm not against people celebrating the New Year, but I hate all the noise. My little dog goes bananas when she hears all the bangs. I have to give her tranquilizers. My neighbors shoot their fire crackers all night long!
