Hong Kong

Never one to do things by halves, Hong Kong puts on an epic New Year’s Eve party with a matching fireworks display on Victoria Harbor that’ll blow your socks right off. The key is a prime vantage point here and, being the fabulously stylish city it is, Hong Kong offers plenty of options. Join a junk boat cruise on the night to sail the harbor like an ancient trader or head to one of the many stunning, world-renowned rooftop bars for which the city is known for. Our money is on the Ritz-Carlton’s Ozone Bar, set on the 118th floor (yes, you read that right) of the ICC building in Tsim ShaTsui. Because if you’re gonna pay top dollar for a glass of bubbly on NYE, it may as well come with top views. Celebrating NYE in style in a standout city doesn’t come much better than this.

Hong Kong goes all out for new year with floats, the classic dragon parade, and a Lunar New Year fair. The harbour lights up with a huge fireworks display and international and local performers take the stage to sing.
