  1. Australia

Sydney, Australia is the perfect place to visit if you are looking forward to fun-filled New Year’s Eve celebrations. All throughout the day, the city enjoys loads of family events, while the major part of the celebration takes place in the evening at the Harbour Bridge and Darling Harbour. To make sure you enjoy the most out of the festivities and fireworks, reach the destination early.

  1. Spain

Spain is another top destination in the list that organizes La Tomatina festival every year. Its almost like Holi (Indian festival) with a twist. In Holi, we play with colours, while in La Tomatina festival, we play with tomatoes – squashing and throwing tomatoes over each other. When you visit this place for this festival, make sure you are aware of all the festival rules and also get a travel insurance cover, as most of the people here speak Spanish. So, you may hardly find any English-speaking person. In case of emergency, the insurance would be your ally.

  1. Brazil

Brazil conducts the craziest and biggest party on earth – Rio Carnival. Also, known as Carneval, this event or festival is organized over the weekend towards the beginning of March. If you wish to be a part of this celebration, you will have to buy tickets to see the contest held between samba schools. Here you will find people drumming their hearts out, dressed in beautiful costumes.

  1. Thailand

Have you ever heard about UV painted people? Thailand actually welcomes over 10,000 such people on every full moon night. This party begins at dusk and has literally no entrance fees. However, you need to make sure that you book your hotel rooms prior in advance, as otherwise, you may not find any vacant room in the local hotels and bungalows.

  1. Turkey

Last but not the least, you must travel to Turkey to explore the joy of Mevlâna Festival. It is also known as the Whirling Dervish Festival, which is organized every year to commemorate the death of Rumi. He was a Persian poet, Sufi mystic, Islamic scholar and theologian. He used to believe that communication with God is possible through dance and music.

So, book your hotel rooms right away. Try to research everything about the place so that you are on a safer side and when you are backed with a travel insurance policy, you need not frown or worry about anything.
