Awesome Destinations To Spend New Year’s Eve in Asia 2022/2023


Although Singapore is one of the 20 smallest countries in the world, it attracts so many visitors. Especially for celebrating New Year's Eve and welcoming 2023 with renewed hope and high spirit! Hop on the Singapore Flyer (the world's tallest Ferris wheel) to get the best view of fireworks. Other top spots to welcome New Year's Eve in Singapore: are Marina Bay, Siloso beach, and Wave House at Sentosa.  

Celebrating New Year’s Eve sure is fun but don't forget to explore famous places in Singapore. Short of time? In this case, you definitely must go to the Garden of the Bay. Forgot to make an instagramic picture? Marina Bay Sands Sky Park gives breathtaking views of Singapore in the sunset. 

Ubud, Bali

Some travelers prefer spending time quietly and feeling every moment to the fullest. If you are one of them, Bali should be on your list. It is widely known for its beautiful beaches or fancy resorts. However, fewer people know that it is also famous for its diverse culture. Instead of lying lazily next to the beach, it is possible to roam the main streets and enjoy calm-paced life. Not every New Year's Eve party must be grandly celebrated. 

There are a few places you should visit in Bali. Firstly, The Museum Puri Lukisan. It’s famous for the finest collection of modern traditional Balinese paintings and wood carvings. Moreover, stay by the temple Pura Taman Saraswati which is gorgeously decorated.

Bangkok, Thailand

It is not surprising that Bangkok is one of the fascinating destinations to end the year and start a new one. Bangkok is a fascinating destination in Asia for welcoming in New Year. Modern bars, fancy hotels, historical buildings, lively streets, and unimaginably colorful fireworks on New Year's Eve will definitely engrave into memory for a long time. 

The last seconds of 2022 will be counted at Central World Square. Nowadays fewer and fewer cities use fireworks. That’s why there you will enjoy eco-friendly fireworks alternative - light and sound multimedia display. So spectacular light and sound displays are guaranteed. 

Bangkok is full of activities and rich travel opportunities. After or before New Year's Eve, you can visit Wat Pho to see the Reclining Buddha. Who knows, your wishes might come true! You must visit Wat Arun temple, the Grand Palace, and the National Museum, make a boat trip along the Chai Phraya River and do some sightseeing or shopping in the city center.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

There is going to be a huge party, and you are invited. Each year thousands of Vietnamese welcome the upcoming Year along the Saigon river. If you prefer avoiding crowds, it is possible to take a cruise on the Saigon river to admire the fireworks show and welcome the New Year from there. Before the countdown and midnight fireworks, you can spend some time visiting restaurants in the city. Also, you could explore Giac Lam Pagoda. It is the oldest temple in Ho Chi Minh city. It’s worth visiting the War Remnants museums, especially if you would like to learn more about the Vietnam War.

Kyoto, Japan

To those, who want to have magical, calm, and at the same time exotic New Year's Eve, we suggest choosing Kyoto. Imagine spending relaxing time in a thermal spa in one of Kyoto's resorts surrounded by snow-laden branches in winter. Charming and romantic holidays are guaranteed. The endearing thing is that there won’t be any fireworks display because the Japanese celebrate New Year’s Eve not so loudly. They lit hundreds of lanterns and candles in the city. So get ready to be mesmerized by the view. 

If littering lanterns are not enough and you truly want to enjoy a more authentic experience in celebrating New Year’s Eve in Japan, go to visit one of the city’s temples or shrines and ring the temple bell for the first time in the New Year. It said that bell ringing cleanses the bad luck of the old year and welcomes good luck! 

Tip: If you’re looking for where to stay in Kyoto, there are plenty of hotels and ryokans available with great facilities. 

Japan is truly lovable by all travelers: delicious food, calm and breathtaking scenery, and magnificent buildings so spend your time productively. We recommend visiting the golden Kinkakuji Temple, Kyoto Tower, famous Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine. Don’t miss the chance to join a tea ceremony at Jotokuji Temple.
