With dancing in the clubs and carnivals in the streets, where exactly are the best cities for partying all around?
1. Cancun, Mexico
Cancun, Mexico, is a little slice of Heaven on the far west-coast of Mexico. Walk as west as you can go in Cancun and you’ll hit ‘as the ‘Party Zone’.
2. Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam is known for a few things: canals, the red light district, bikes and certain legal substances that your mother warned you about. Amsterdam is a nightlife city with an eclectic mixture of clubs hosting some of the world’s biggest and up-and-coming DJs, the perfect destination to get lost in the music and emerge refreshed.
3. New York, United States
Known as the city that never sleeps, New York captures the imagination of the world with its historic Ball Drop at Times Square, every year. Anticipation runs high as thousands of people chant the countdown to the New Year. The ball drops exactly at midnight, ending in a memorable display of dazzling lights, music, fireworks and cheers of the crowd.
4. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio is the party city of Brazil, and over 1 million people flock there every year to attend Carnival, a festival that has been celebrated since 1723. Why? Because in Rio, partying is an art form, even if you go in the off-season there are still clubs and bars pumping out traditional samba on the Copacabana beach strip until dawn.
5. Berlin, Germany
Berlin is famous for lots of reasons: it’s cheap, it’s fun, it’s cultural, it’s cool, and oh, there are probably more clubs than there are people. Notoriously the coolest clubs are the most tricky to get into but there are a few rules that you abide by in order to stand a chance – look tough (think black and leather), don’t be drunk, know who’s playing that night and if you can, attempt to speak some German or make friends with one in the queue.
