5 Best Cities Around The World To Countdown To 2023How quickly does time fly? In just three weeks’ time, 2022 will come to a close, ringing in 2023. As New Year’s Eve is an event to celebrate our accomplishments for the year, it is a memorable and sentimental time to spend with our loved ones. Some people may prefer to do an intimate dinner to spend the last few hours of the year, whereas others may enjoy partying it up with a glass of champagne. Regardless of which group you belong to, you can consider flying to these world-class cities around the world to close off 2022.

1. Sydney, Australia 

Of course, we cannot mention the best cities to celebrate New Year’s Eve without listing Sydney, Australia. As one of the first places in the world to welcome the new year, your social media feed will surely be filled with photos and videos of fireworks – truly the envy of your friends across the globe. Accompanied by the iconic views of the Sydney Opera House, your New Year’s Eve will no doubt leave a lasting impression. We recommend getting some dinner and drinks at the Sydney Harbour as you countdown to midnight.

2. New York City, United States 

Alongside Sydney, New York City is another renowned city not to be missed. Even if you have not been to New York, you should have seen or at least known about the Times Square Ball Drop. With massive screens displayed all over Times Square, you will get a good view of the ball dropping at midnight, no matter where you are standing. Otherwise, you can head over to Central Park or the New York Harbor to see the mesmerising fireworks.

3. Dubai, United Arab Emirates 

Dubai is a controversial city to this day. While some people may dub it a “fake city” due to its countless skyscrapers and man-made islands, everyone can agree that Dubai possesses some of the world’s most impressive architectural projects. If you have always wanted to visit the world’s tallest building – Burj Khalifa – and the world’s only 7-star hotel – Burj Al Arab, this year’s New Year’s Eve celebration offers a wonderful opportunity. Do not forget about catching the light and water show at the Dubai Fountain as well.

4. Goa, India 

For those wanting to take the path less travelled, consider heading to Goa, India. This city may not immediately come to mind when it comes to spending New Year’s Eve, but we can assure you that you will not regret visiting here. This city is arguably the party destination of India, so fun and celebration are definitely in the picture. What’s more, as India has always been known for its celebratory mood, you can look forward to a myriad of parties and events taking place through the night, all complemented by breathtaking fireworks.

5. Bangkok, Thailand 

Let’s say you do not want to travel too far from Singapore, or you have a tighter budget to adhere to. That does not mean you must sacrifice your New Year’s Eve plan, as the next best place you can head to is Bangkok, Thailand. Everyone around the world knows that Thailand serves up some of the craziest and wildest parties, so there is nothing more fitting than celebrating in the capital city. Our advice is to book a table at a rooftop bar and drink to your heart’s content once the clock strikes midnight.


As New Year’s Eve is meant to be a joyous occasion, you do not want to get into any accidents or mishaps that can dampen the mood and ruin your trip altogether. As such, make sure to stay protected by getting travel insurance. To take a step further, researching medical evacuation services around the area can provide you peace of mind in knowing that you can receive medical assistance whenever necessary.
