It has been a tradition to welcome the New Year with a big bang. There is no better way to say hello to 2010 with the best fireworks display all over the globe:
The New Year 2010 will be welcomed with a colorful spectacle in London. You can join the crowd that will form along the banks of the River Thames to see the best fireworks in town. According to organizers, the 2010 fireworks will be the grandest so far. The London Eye will be utilized as part of the light display with fireworks thundering from every direction.
The best views of the fireworks can be seen from the Victoria Embankment, the South Bank, Waterloo Bridge, or the Westminster Embankment.

If you are over 18 or 21 there are tons of great New Years Eve events to take part in while visiting Sin City. There will be plenty of shows, after parties, and hotel roof top bashes going on to keep you entertained for hours and hours! There are more than enough attractions and events being hosted, and you can try to see a few or just spend your time at one. Remember that Vegas is often referred to as the Times Square of the west, so be sure to prepare ahead! Here is a list of the top 5 attractions you can take part in on NYE.
1. The main strip party of the year will be held like always. You can expect a wonderful mixture of live music, people drinking and living it up, as well as plenty of fireworks and general joy. Forget about the recession and all of your worries in Las Vegas on NYE! It isn’t recommended that children attend, but they are permitted. With all of the people around its best to leave the kids at home.
Las Vegas is one of the biggest party cities in the world, and a perfect destination for a really exciting and special New Years Eve. You will never be bored as there are plenty of things to do, from visiting the casinos and dining out, to going to see one of the big Christmas shows, and there are also lots of special New Years Eve parties including the famous street party which takes place on the main strip, which is closed to traffic for the night. The firework extravaganza that takes place at midnight at New Year is typically over the top and mind blowing, and you can see it from almost anywhere in the city, but whilst you are out and about having fun remember to keep things in line as the Las Vega city police maintain a large visible presence on New Years Eve, and are not known for their sense of humour!
I think that Prague is a favorite destination for the New Year 2009. Its old downtown is between the world’s nicest and since 20 years an UNESCO heritage site.
A trip to Prague on New Year 2009 will be the right occasion to discover or rediscover the charm of former centuries and the rich art collectionsof czech Museums.
Prague is not a big city (1 200 000 people), is not overcrowded and very easy to discover walking in the downtown. There are plenty of pubs there where you can taste the delicious Bohemia beer and the tasty cuisine. But these traditional pubs are usually overcrowded, even Bill Gates did not find a free table.
Guards changing in the Hradcany Palace has a special ritual and is a show for any tourist.
Las Vegas is a great destination for New Years Eve, with a wealth of organised shows and entertainments, and some amazing deals on hotels and casinos. Nights out in Las Vegas are pretty special any night of the year, but as you would expect from this glitzy party city, New Years Eve is something else!
There are so many shows on over the New Years period it is a good idea to go to one of the show guide websites such as www.VegasView.com, so that you can scan through all the choices and make reservations on the ones you are interested in to avoid disappointment. Some shows tipped to be sold out quickly this year include the Cirque du Soleil “O” show at the famous Bellagio Hotel, and the Mama Mia show at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Also there is also a rumour going around that Britney Spears might be doing some special Las Vegas come back shows around this New Years time.
