New Year’s Eve (NYE) is much looked forward to around the world, with many capital cities putting on spectacular fireworks displays. Agoda, one of the world’s fastest growing online travel agents (OTAs), has rounded up some of the best places to stay with the best views of these fireworks shows.

London, UK

London’s NYE fireworks display on the River Thames gets more impressive every year – framing the London Eye with a kaleidoscope of colours and dancing over the city’s most famous landmarks. Stay at the Shangri La at The Shard or The Savoy for stellar views.

Hong Kong, China

Hong Kong’s NYE fireworks are renowned, with thousands of bright lights exploding above the city’s beautiful harbour. Stay on the Kowloon side at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong or on the Hong Kong island side at the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong to ensure you don’t miss any of the action.

Sydney, Australia

Sydney’s NYE display features an exceptional range of pyrotechnic effects launched from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and from barges in the harbour. Stay at the InterContinental Sydney or Four Seasons Hotel Sydney to have one of the best rooms with a view in the city.

The NYE fireworks display from Dubai’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, never disappoints. If you’re looking for a spot with best vantage point, check out the Address Downtown or Palace Downtown.

Paris, France

Kick off 2019 in the most romantic and beautiful city in the world. This year the NYE fireworks at the Eiffel Tower have been replaced by a light show, which promises to be just as dazzling while being a more eco- friendly alternative. Stay at the Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg Hotel  or Hotel Balzac Champs Elysees to be at the center of the action.

Ushering in the New Year in Times Square might just be the most famous NYE celebration there is. Stay at the The Knickerbocker or Casablanca Hotel New York and witness the ball drop as the clock strikes midnight.
