Celebrate a New Year of Luxury with New Year’s Eve Extravaganzas and Business Class Deals
The new year will be here before we know it, and now’s a terrific time to start booking those discounted business class tickets for exciting New Year’s Eve celebrations. New York may be the obvious place to ring in the new year, but if you’re ready to try something new, there are dozens of other outlandish New Year’s extravaganzas. Here are a few of the most spectacular New Year’s events that will start your new year off right:
This glittering, frenetic city is already well-known for its nightly light and music productions played out on the city’s skyscrapers, and its New Year’s Eve show goes a step farther. Marking the new year, fireworks explode from the top of several high-rise towers around Victoria Harbour and barges shoot off colorful pyrotechnics, all choreographed to a lively musical score. The city is known for its glamorous hotels, so there are plenty of options for travelers. You can’t go wrong with the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, InterContinental Hong Kong, The Excelsior and Harbour Grand Kowloon, most offering holiday specials and packages.
Partying in Amsterdam is a unique experience, and it’s even more so on New Year’s Eve. The celebration here is less about grand fireworks displays and more about letting loose and dancing the night away. Leidseplein, Nieuwmarkt and Rembrandtplein are popular hot spots, but memorable spectacles are held at nightclubs around the city and impromptu parties pop up all over town.
Even with all of these parties, you may still want to check out the brilliant fireworks presentation at the Oosterdok. To make your revelry as luxurious as possible, we recommend checking out our first class deals to Amsterdam and five-star hotels like the Waldorf-Astoria, Grand Hotel Amrath, Sofitel Legend or InterContinental Amstel.
Be the first to count down the dawn of a new year by celebrating in beautiful Sydney. In fact, if you’re so inclined, you can actually celebrate twice since Sydney’s dazzling fireworks display over Sydney Harbour is held at both 9 p.m. and midnight. There are more than 50 official vantage points around the city that will give you a terrific view of the pyrotechnic show, but you can also get a front-row seat by opting for the NYE Above the Harbour experience. The special event is a unique way to experience the fireworks from the lawn above the Sydney Opera House, and it includes luxury amenities, from exclusive libations and a desert garden to dancing. Chic Sydney is also known for its stellar hotels, so revelers have countless elegant lodging options. We always enjoy the plush amenities of hotels like the Park Hyatt, 1888 Hotel, Sydney Harbour Marriott and Shangri-La Hotel Sydney. There are nearly 30 five-star hotels in the area, so you’ll have ample choices after your first class flight touches down in Sydney.
