You are in Bali during New Year holidays and you are asking yourself what should you do at New Year’s Eve? Let me share with you what people actually do here for New Year celebration. There are bunch of parties, festive dinners in restaurants and other options for you. First thing you have to know about New Year in Bali that it is mostly celebrated by tourists and expats living on the island. As of New Year’s Eve itself most of the locals in Bali prefer to hang out at the beach to watch fireworks. But here let us give you some options for celebrating New Year.
Street parties and fireworks on the beach The cheapest way to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Bali is to hit to Kuta bars and clubs in the evenings and later head to Kuta beach to watch fireworks with local crowds. If your way to meet New Year is to party hard, get drunk and dance all night long Kuta is your choice. All the bars in Kuta will be open for New Years night and most of the main streets will be closed for traffic so you will be able to walk from one night club to another. Be ready for massive crowds and lots of traffic jams around Kuta and Seminyak. The best idea is to park you scooter/car far from main streets and just walk there.
New Year party in Clubs
Party in night clubs is one of the best options for New Year celebration, a party somewhere in a night club in Seminyak. Seminyak is an upscale and trendier compare to Kuta. And you can find night clubs for any taste. The nightlife here is on the international level and those of you who prefer to dress up nicely for New Year Party will be able to do that. Nice dress & high heels are common for Seminyak bars & clubs.
New Year’s Eve Dinner
If you are not much of a party person then NYE is a great time to have a fancy dinner in one of the Bali’s best restaurants. And don’t forget to pre-book it in advance! Most of the big hotels will offer you New Year dinner too, but unless you are an absolutely lazy person I would suggest go check out something in Seminyak or other areas.
Island and Beach Party
If you are looking into more tropical and island way to celebrate New Year then you better head to one of the small islands close to Bali. What can be better than a party on the beach? No high heels not dress code and no fancy outfits. The number 1 choice is definitely Gili Islands, three small islands that have no other traffic but bicycles and horse carriages. The party island is Gili Trawangan, and two other islands. There’s a boat parties organized in Gili. Lots of expats go to Gili Trawangan for New Year’s Party so make sure you book your accommodation and boat ticket well in advance. Besides Gili there is another island close to Bali – Nusa Lembongan. It’s bigger than Gili and since Bali is gonna be really crazy during New Year days it’s always nice to escape to a more quiet place. In Nusa Lembonagn you can have a New Year Party in Lembongan Beach Club or in Le Pirate Beach Club.
So it’s your choice which you can choose for your new year’s eve last moment is 2016 and for the last but not least we wish you a happy prosperous fun filled joyful and fortunate new year ahead, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!
