Da Lat usurped Ho Chi Minh City for the number one spot for New Year’s Eve (NYE) travel this year, according to Agoda.

More international destinations feature in this year’s top ten, as Vietnamese travelers celebrate the year-end further afield, with three overseas destinations in the top ten this year (Bangkok, Taipei and Singapore), compared with only one last year (Bangkok). Taipei enters this year’s top ten in the number six spot.

Agoda’s Top 2018 NYE Destinations (Dec 31, 2018)

Tokyo, Paris and New York City are the top destinations to ring in 2019, according to Agoda, one of the world’s fastest-growing online travel agents (OTA), with more than a third more people opting to getaway to celebrate on NYE.

A top ten NYE destination for many markets globally and number one for Chinese and Singaporean travelers, Tokyo’s appeal continues with a jam-packed itinerary of concerts, parades and light shows making it the perfect destination to cast off the old and welcome in the New Year.

It’s no wonder Paris, boasting endless themed parties, New Year countdowns at popular landmarks, and shows for the whole family has secured the top spot for NYE travel in Europe. The “City of Love” is a top ten for its British neighbors as well as travelers from Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The ball drop at Times Square in New York City is one of the most iconic and star-driven celebrations of NYE in the world, so it comes as no surprise that New York City is the top North American destination for travelers globally and number two for Americans traveling domestically for NYE.
