The New Year's Eve is slowly approaching, and now that summer holidays are over, it is time to start thinking about the end of the year events, Christmas and New Years Eve !

While Christmas is most likely a family holiday, NYE is a party holiday, and a trip somewhere is a great way to celebrate the passage to the next year.

Many people are searching for cheap travel for New Year or might be dreaming of spending New Year in Paris or in other popular destination.

1 - Cheap NYE getaways

Depending where you are living, cheap things to do on New Years Eve might mean different things, and cheap places to travel for new years might be very different.

However, our proposition per continent is as follow.

Cheap places to go in Europe for new years

See about Warsaw, the capital of Poland. The country is generally one of the cheapest in Europe.

And, with plenty of hotels, it is a business destination. Meaning that accomodation prices are cheaper on weekends and holidays than on business days, and therefore cheap for New Years Eve - just like the parties are !

2 - Disneyland new years eve

What about a Disneyland New Years Eve ?

They are known to offer great shows, and being opened in the heart of winter can make up for an exceptionally beautiful scenery, if snow is in the game.

If not, the awesome decorations are still there, and the famous Disney parade is a ravishment for children and young couples on a romantic getaway.

It has great New Years Eve events for families, but also is one of the good New Years Eve ideas for couples.

  Disneyland Paris hotel

The magic breaks eurodisney for New Years Eve !

  • Is disneyland paris open on christmas day ? Yes, it is open all year round. Disneyland paris opening hours christmas day from 9am until 10pm.
  • Is disneyland paris open on new year's day ? Yes, it is !
  • What time does disneyland open on New Years Eve ? Disneyland paris New Years Eve opening times are 9am to 18h30 / 6.30pm.

Another option is to celebrate New Years 2021 in Paris, by going to the popular Champs Elysees, on which every year New Years in Paris is celebrated with a street party.

However, if you plan to celebrate New Years in Paris 2021, expect to be a little cold, and to have a hard time reaching any public bathrooms, as hundreds of thousands of people are gathering there to celebrate New Years in Paris 2021 on the Champs Elysees avenue.

3 - Bali New Year - Bali NYE

The most touristic island in Indonesia is also a great destination to enjoy New Years Eve... under the sun, at the beach, and with a cocktail !

With a very large hotel selection for all budgets, the island always has enough rooms for the many tourists coming.

What about starting the party with sunset on Kuta beach, west of Denpasar, partying until dawn, and going to see the sunrise East of the island on Nusa Dua beach ? They are only 30 minutes away by taxi, which can turn to one hour or more with traffic.

The best location to stay in Bali, at least party wise, is Kuta beach, where most parties happen, and beach is animated even at night.

Beautiful beaches in bali are actually... well pretty much everywhere. Best is to go away from Denpasar to enjoy cleaner beaches, as less tourists are walking there.

4 - New Year's Eve in the mountains 2021

Northern hemisphere winter means amazing time skying in the mountains for New Years Eve, after the ski season has opened.

Most ski resorts organize events for the year change, like a torchlight descent by the ski instructors.

It looks like a fire snake coming down the mountain, and it is something every mountain lover must see at least once !

New Years Eve in mountains is also a great way to do more sports than eating and drinking, and enjoying nature at the same time.

5 - New Years Eve events near me

It is not always necessary to go far to enjoy the end of the year party... many events are organized everywhere.

Booking a great hotel nearby, and enjoying the party they organize is also a way to feel in a different place, while not going too far and not spending too much.

Staying near home for the celebration is also a great way to avoid seasons travel peak, and January is actually a great time to travel and enjoy cheap prices.

Summer starts mid-January in India for example =)

Denise Brown, Sababu Safaris: the Original Maasai Lodge in West Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, has become a tradition for me

Celebrating NYE at the Original Maasai Lodge in West Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, has become a tradition for me. Ever since I spent NYE there the first time and I cried tears of joy, I have returned again and again (all by myself).

Not only are you completely surrounded by nature - with Mount Kilimanjaro on one side and Mount Meru on the other side - you are also celebrating with the Maasai tribe in an area of Tanzania where they have been living their traditional lifestyle for thousands of years. Celebrating NYE with them involves singing and traditional dancing for hours, lighting torches, walking up a hill together (while signing!) and igniting a new bonfire together representing the start of the new year! The Maasai choir serenading you throughout the night will touch your soul, and the dancing will make you feel like you are part of the Maasai family. It is an experience unlike anything else. Since this place is so full of energy and allows you to reconnect with yourself, it offers the best opportunity to reflect on the past year and make resolutions for the new year.

Marcio Delgado: Algarve is surrounded by Atlantic beaches and golf resorts

One of the best New Year's Eve celebration I ever attended was in Portugal. The south of the country, Algarve, is surrounded by Atlantic beaches and golf resorts and the weather is mild even in the European winter, so events to welcome the New Year are always taking place outside. Even though it is a very catholic country, Portuguese people celebrate special occasions with an incredible variety of dishes that goes far beyond a traditional turkey, and wine is surprisingly cheap.

Because it is low season in the country, you will still manage to get decent Airbnb accommodation for a group of four people for aprox. $100/night, and renting a car for a week won’t cost you more than $85.

Sammie Herrick: You can watch the show for free inside of Taipei 101 City Plaza

The best New Years celebration I have ever attended was definitely at Taipei 101 in Taipei, Taiwan. Taipei 101 is a 508 meter building, previously the tallest in the entire world, and the city sets off about 16,000 fireworks from the bottom to the top of the skyscraper. It's also complimented by a huge LED light show on the building itself and tons of New Years Eve entertainment/performances leading up to the main event.

The great thing about it is that it is amazing for all budgets. You can watch the show for free inside of Taipei 101 City Plaza or atop of the Xiangshan Hiking Trail. If you're willing to spend a bit more for a more lavish experience, there are countless rooftop bars that offer all kind of New Years Eve parties and specials with amazing views of 101.

What makes it so enjoyable (besides the spectacular scene of 101 itself) is the Taiwanese people. You could liken the experience to a (more) impressive Times Square...except with tons more personal space. No one pushes or shoves. In fact, most people lay out full blankets on the ground and have picnics before the show. You don't need to worry about being shmooshed in with strangers...you get your own space to view this amazing spectacle. I would go every year if I could!

Gaurav Gandhi, ChefPassport: Barcelona has a great evening wibe

In 2017, I got an opportunity to celebrate NYE in Barcelona, and in my perspective, it is the best destination to do so.

Apart from spectacular architecture, Barcelona has a great evening wibe. On the NYE, a bunch of us bounced from one tapa place to another, while enjoying great food and wine. As we got closer to the midnight hour, we headed to the Plaza Espanya where the central celebrations happen. Unlike New York or Paris, there is an actual light and music show. It's captivating and very entertaining.

The countdown is to the bells of the cathedral which create a mesmerizing environment!

I will definitely recommend Barcelona for NYE, and consider it to be the best spot in the world to celebrate last night of the year!

David Tooke, campingfunzone.com: Nicholas street is a must go place

My best experience on New Year's Eve was at Mr Wolf's, 32 St Nicholas St, BS1. I remember there was a free entry and thousands of visitors enjoying their time. It was an enchanting atmosphere with live music and club nights. Some of the things for which I will surely want to go back are the beer pong and DJ set spanning soul and disco. With minimum $200 you can have a full enjoy every moment of it. So, for anyone who wants to have the best experience, Nicholas street is a must go place for him.

Casper Ohm, Water-Pollution.org.uk: kiss your loved one in front of the Times Square

As I live in New York, I would have to suggest my city as the best place for NYE, naturally!

New Year’s Eve is definitely one of the holidays that brings more people together, and that is undeniable. Whether it is around a highly crowded square in a big city or in a faraway and quiet place in the mountains, everybody wants to have a good time during New Year’s Eve, and thanks to my experience after spending many NYE in places of both kinds, I can affirm that one of the greatest experiences of my life I had it in New York.

There are simply no words to describe what is like to kiss your loved one after watching the ball drop in front of the Times Square and then listening to Frank Sinatra’s New York surrounded by thousands of people.

The atmosphere there is incredible, and if you’re like me, who got goosebumps just by watching previous videos of it, once you’re there, I’m pretty sure tears will come out of your eyes. Even though there’s not such a thing as an entrance fee, prices tend to rocket to the skies in New York around that time of the year, so it’s safe to say it is not a very budget-friendly destination; however, you can book accommodations and travel early in the year so you can keep some money in your pocket.

Aqsa Tabassam, Simpl Fulfillment: Las Vegas was the best of all, that is why I am planning another

The New Year Eve bash of 2019 at Las Vegas was the best of all, that is why I am planning another NYE at Las Vegas.The city is famous for parties because of so many party places such as hotels, casinos, clubs, etc. Their New Year Eve celebration is the best of all as they certainly know how to celebrate the night that everyone would not forget.

There were massive fireworks, no traffic so that everyone there could safely enjoy the party. If you want to enjoy yourself among the crowd, just like I did, all you have to do is go downtown. I went straight to Fremont Street and became part of a huge crowd where singers of the big-name were there for the concert, which made my NYE more special.

Yes, I would definitely go back to Las Vegas for another New Year’s Eve bash.

If you are a luxury packer, your daily expenses go up to 380 dollars, but an average packer enjoys his day for just 100 dollars. Being an average packer, I enjoyed my New Year bash for just 90 dollars.

Jennifer Willy, ETIA: my favorite memories of New Year's Eve was here in Los Angeles

Celebrating New Year is one of the most cherished and precious experiences that one can have. It doesn't matter whether you're celebrating it with your family inside your house or having a ball while being outside. Personally, some of my favorite memories regarding the celebration of New Year's Eve was here in Los Angeles. There are so many places in that city where you can celebrate to your heart's content. It doesn't matter whether you're rich or broke, you will have a great time. Clubs have become a popular destination to enjoy as they have special New Years' offers regarding invitations to multiple clubs for the NYE celebration. There are various other events that take place in the city whose invitation is free of cost and have great food and live entertainment options.

Best places to celebrate new years in Europe

See also the best party places in europe, all of which organize special events for NYE. Most of the time, it is better to book in advance, as a lot of them are quickly becoming full, and usually include dinner and party.

For a street celebration, see the Champs Elysees in Paris, which is full of people all night long, but might get a bit cold at night.

Best clubs for new years eve

It is not possible to select one best club for New Years Eve, as all of them are very different, and hosts even more different events for the end of the year.

However, you cannot be wrong by going to Warsaw, Poland, where clubs are affordable, often have food and drinks packages, and party until end of the night.
