Get ready to be doused in champagne as soon as the clock strikes 12
Don’t let New Year’s Eve be a wash out. Join the celebrations in one of these cities
Dance In Chile
When it strikes 12: Head to Valparaiso harbour, which is the centre of the celebrations. From here you see an array of different firework shows that will light up the sky between Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. And then once these power works are over you can join the dance party that lasts until the sun comes up.
When it strikes 12: Rock your best white outfit (it’s customary) and hit Copacabana Beach. Here you’ll find Brazilian samba and pop bands and get ready to be doused in champagne as soon as the clock strikes 12. Or if you want to rub shoulders with the A-list, party the night away in the Copacabana Palace.
Hit The Slopes
When it strikes 12: You can ring in the New Year with the rosy-cheeked revellers in the centre of Verbier or snap up a ticket for the end of year party at the Farinet. The legendary NYE bash usually includes champagne on arrival and tunes by veteran Ibiza DJs.
Join The Fun In The Square
When it strikes 12: Joining the countdown for the ball drop in NYC is a must do. Celebs will take to the stage to help revellers countdown to midnight and there will be bands and entertainers ready to help you boogie the night away.
Be The First To Celebrate
When it strikes 12: Gisborne’s Rhythm and Vines Festival is the perfect way to welcome 2017. Running for three days you can give 2016 a great send off before you say hello to 2017. Book the VIP package that includes access to private bars and luxury powder rooms.
