Start 2020 in These Beautiful Destinations
This new year brings a new decade and there is no better way to ring it in than with a beautiful getaway. From the warmest islands near the equator to the coldest countries, a new place to welcome in the new decade might help bring new thoughts, new perspectives, and a fresh outlook on the year ahead.
Paris is the perfect city to ring in the new year in luxury. With some of the world’s best restaurants, hotels, and clubs, you can’t go wrong in the city of lights.

Lido de Paris is also putting on a brand new show from director Franco Dragone this year. The show will include beautiful acrobats and dancers, dressed in elegant feathers and gowns to keep you entertained!
Australia has arguably the most beautiful blue waters and marine life in the world. Sydney also has one of the world’s most beautiful fireworks display. Last year the show alone brought about 1.5 million people to watch the show. Set against the beautiful Opera House and the Sydney Harbour, this fireworks display is too beautiful to miss this 2020.
Once the new year's festivities come to an end, the city has enough things to keep you occupied and entertained. Visit the Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the daylight. The sunrise on the harbour is something worth the extra hours in the air to get there!

New York City, New York
New York City is the heart of the United States on News Year’s Day. Head to the big apple to see the ball drop in person and take part in the Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve show. If you don’t want to be in the cold and around so many people, there enough skyscrapers to watch from the highest penthouse.
After the ball drops and the countdown ends, you can spend the next few days around the city shopping, dining, and gathering with family and friends.
This beautiful city provides a stunning backdrop to watch the fireworks light up the night sky. Set against Big Ben, you and your family can catch this display by the Victoria Embankment, South Bank area by the River Thames. If you are looking for a colder city to spend new years, then London, England may be the destination for you.
After the display is over, there are enough bars, restaurants, and entertainment areas to spend the rest of your trip exploring. Plan to purchase your tickets for the display and other entertainment spots beforehand as things get a little busy.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Last year, over 2 million people came to watch the fireworks display all over the city of Dubai. If nightlife, partying, and luxury are what you are looking for in a New Year's destination, then book a flight to Dubai.
Watch the fireworks from the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, from the observatory deck, or along Jumeirah Beach. If you want to party, the spot to be in is the Atlantis on the Palm or Zero Gravity. Take your family on the Dhow Dinner Cruise for a great time on the water, or eat your dinner with a beautiful view at 360° Restaurant and Bar.
