Top 10 Asian Locations To Celebrate The New Year in 2023 (Part 1)

6. Goa

Goa is a fantastic place to spend New Year's Eve because of the late-night celebrations, inexpensive alcohol, spectacular beachside fireworks, live music, and pleasant and welcoming locals. It is thought of as the unofficial party capital of India.

Huge crowds of people are predicted to assemble along the beaches to take in the vibrant fireworks displays and revel in the traditional Hindi music and dancing events.

Goa provides opulent lodging, excellent resorts, and mouthwatering dining options. The city is ideal for young people to ring in the new year. You may visit a number of magnificent forts in Goa over the New Year's vacation, such as Aguada, Chapora, Reis Magos, Corjuem, and others.

Take some time to explore and discover the spiritual grandeur and architectural splendor of Goa's UNESCO World Heritage sites.

7. Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto is an excellent location in Japan to ring in the New Year because of its enchanted, attractive, and romantic environment.

The city is renowned for its geothermal springs, where you may unwind in a thermal spa in one of its resorts while being encircled by branches covered in snow throughout the winter.

You can visit the many historic structures and temples while you wait for the clock to strike midnight. In this serene and lovely city, there are no fireworks displays, but thousands of light lanterns and candles are lit to give the city a stunning appearance.

You can also take part in a significant annual celebration held at one of the city's temples or shrines with the locals. To ring the temple bell for the first time in the New Year, the locals congregate there.

They hold that the sound of the bell would banish the bad luck from the previous year and usher in good fortune for the coming one.

After New Year's Eve in Kyoto, spend several days exploring the city. Go to the stunning golden Kinkakuji Temple, which is draped in gold and scarlet leaves during the winter. Participate in a tea ceremony at Jotokuji Temple to learn more about Japanese Chado (also known as "the method of tea").

To enjoy a comprehensive view of the entire city, you can climb the Kyoto Tower, which is the tallest structure in Kyoto.

8. Vientiane, Laos

Vientiane is an excellent option if you're seeking for a lovely and tranquil city to spend your New Year's Eve in Laos. Vientiane, known for its enchanting gold temples and ancient landmarks, has a wide selection of resort hotels, cozy cafés, and excellent dining establishments.

On New Year's Eve, be sure to attend the Tiger Beer Event in Nam Phou Square. The countdown party lasts all night long, from midday till midnight, with music playing continuously. During the occasion, the streets are adorned with a variety of colored lights.

Food and beverage vendors play loud music while they sell their wares. While the locals do, gather around a large table to savor the mouthwatering street fare as you wait for the countdown at midnight.

Visit the city's most well-known attractions if you have more time in Vientiane. The Arc de Triomphe in Paris is comparable to the Patuxai Victory Monument. Or discover more about Buddhist culture by looking at the reclining Buddha statues in Xieng Khuan (also known as "Buddha Park").

If you want to learn more about the history and culture of Laos, go to the Lao National Museum.

9. Hong Kong, China

Hong Kong welcomes visitors from all over the world with a fantastic party atmosphere from Christmas through Chinese New Year. The New Year's Eve fireworks display over Victoria Harbor will astound you with their vibrant colors.

The greatest way to view the fireworks is from a cruise ship, where you can take in both the vibrant light and sound extravaganza and Hong Kong's glittering cityscape.

Participate in the neighborhood-organized street parades and parties that go on until the New Year's countdown at midnight. Or you can go to Tsim Sha Tsui's live performances and countdown celebrations, where there are street markets, name-brand hotels, and upscale pubs and clubs.

A fantastic location to view the fireworks during the new year is Tsim Sha Tsui.

You might go to The Peak, the highest point on Hong Kong Island, for more tour activities while in Hong Kong. The Peak offers stunning views of the city and Victoria Harbour. During the New Year's holiday, expect large crowds and lengthy tram lines.

Temple Street Night Market is a traditional Chinese market where you may spend the evening shopping for electronics, souvenirs, and a variety of street delicacies. After that, relax with a drink or a cup of coffee in one of Lan Kwai Fong's eateries or pubs.

10. Unawatuna, Sri Lanka

Since Sri Lanka is thought of as a hidden jewel of Asia, many young people choose to spend their New Year's Eve and holiday there.

Unawatuna is significantly quieter, more laid-back, and less congested than many locations in Sri Lanka, making it the ideal town for couples to spend their romantic New Year's Eve in.

During the New Year's vacation, Unawatuna provides more reasonably priced boutique hotels than other areas of Sri Lanka's island.

Plan a quick excursion to the nearby Galle Fort, which is just a 10-minute drive from Unawatuna, to make the most of your vacation there.

Alternately, enroll in a snorkeling course at the primary snorkeling location, Jungle Beach. A coral reef is found only a few meters offshore, and the beach is bordered by forest.
