The year 2016 has been an amazing year, so it's only fitting to end it with a bang. A lot of people will probably prefer to just stay at home with family, but others would want to celebrate it out of town or out of the country. The world offers a lot of beautiful places for celebrating New Year.

New York City is popular about a lot of things, but it also hosts probably the most famous New Year's celebration.  People all over the world wait in anticipation for the Waterford crystal LED ball to drop from the former New York Times Building. According to National Geographic, this American tradition is over 100 years old. 

Another popular US city, Las Vegas in Nevada, is a go-to-place during New Year's Eve.  Bustle said that the city is a partying Mecca regardless of what day of the year it is, but Fremont street is especially known for its New Year's Eve party. 

Then, there's Brazil's Rio de Janeiro. When one thinks of Rio, the word "carnival" automatically comes to mind.  The world-renowned Copacabana Beach hosts the world's largest turn of the year party, with about 2 million people gathering onto the two-and-a-half-mile stretch of sand, and with fireworks display lasting about 15 to 20 minutes. 

For a more romantic setting, you can head to Paris, France.  Imagine witnessing fireworks at midnight which lights the whole Eiffel Tower.  This city guarantees one of the most beautiful New Year's Eve that one can ever witness.

If you prefer to go to an Asian country to celebrate New Year, then you may want to go to Tokyo. The city offers traditional Japanese celebration with the ringing of bells as a countdown to midnight, and people eating noodles to ensure good health and happiness. If you stay until the 2nd of January, you can witness the emperor open the palace grounds to the public.
