Best Place in the world to go for New Years?

I say Edinburgh because of Hogmany. I'd be interested to know what other places everyone here thinks are cool for New Years.

Sydney Harbour is the best place in the world for New Year. Fireworks over the Harbour Bridge are astonishing. Did anyone see it during the Oympics?

The only really exciting New Year's I spent was in London in Trafalgar Square with 100,000 of my best friends. It was so cool; there was only one small fight that I saw, and after the shindig was over a whole bunch of people went to get on the Tube to go home. The gates were closed, so some guys at the front pushed them open, and everyone was able to get on the right train to go home. Lotsa fun and quite safe!

Sometimes I go to bed and forget to celebrate.

One year, I remember watching a marathon of "Crocodile Hunter" on the Animal Planet channel...that was fun.

Dunno where I'll be this year. Maybe in Europe, maybe back here.

Actually, that is a great question. I find that as the years go by, planning a great NYE is more difficult b/c you have already done many things. I think that NYE is overrated and is an excuse for many to overcharge people. Don't get me wrong, it is fun but not all that it's cracked up to be. NYE in New York is fun, but the whole Times Square thing is quite exaggerated: it is cold, you cant drink(you can, but it is not pleasant in the cold w/out restrooms!) and you cant move.

Personally, I find many regular Saturday night throughout the year to be far more enjoyable than many New Year's Eve nights.

Any suggestions for NYC in 2003?

since 1994 I have spent all NYEs, except fo the Millenium one at a local Folk Festival here in the Sunshine Coast hinterland- it is a great place, it runs from the 26th of Dec until the 2nd of January and it is like a trip around the world- there are usually 2000+ performers from all over the world and you can see all types of music covered from blues, traditional irish folk, african, dance in fact you name it they have it and this past new years I saw a 20 piece all girl brass soul band followed by a bit of a dance and many margaritas in the techno tent and then a all night dance tot he sounds of the world percussion show in the natural ampitheatre and then at dawn lots of people watched the first sunrise of the year with the tibetan monks chanting up on the biggest hill on the site- so much fun- I love the Woodford Folk Festival

For me somewhere in Australia or New Zealand, or the surrounding islands. Not so much because of the celebrations but because those areas are the first places to actually enter the millennium.
