1. Times Square, New York

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.

The ball drops exactly at midnight, ending in a memorable display of dazzling lights, music, fireworks and cheers of the crowd.

Party enthusiastic tip: Once the party ends here, head for the after party to Copacabana, Penthouse 760, The Gallery at Dream Hotel or any of the other nightclubs near Times Square.

When: 31st December every year

2. Burning Man, Nevada

Known as the party that lasts a week, Burning Man is a mix of serious revelry, survival training in a desert and a platform of artistic expression. If you are an artist looking to explore the depth of your creative candour, this is the place to come to. Held in Black Rock Desert in Nevada, an ephemeral city is created in the middle of the arid desert by over 70,000 people who attend the event. With a different theme every year, there are a number of installations to admire, performances to watch and even classes to take.

Party enthusiastic tip:
Carry everything you will need to sustain yourself in a desert, including water, so that your party there never ends!

Full Moon Party, Thailand

Every month, over 10,000 people collect at dusk on a full moon night, on the crescent-shaped beach of Haad Rin to party the night away. The evening is an explosion of music and dance with a number of DJs playing till the wee hours of the morning, with everything from techno, trance, reggae or commercial music. There are impromptu fireworks through the night, with jugglers and fire eaters entertaining the crowds. Dance for hours, down tankards of liquor or wade out into the water—there are no limitations.

Party energetic tip:
All the bathrooms off the beach cost between 5-10 Baht for one use. Bring enough small change so that you can pee in peace.

When: Full moon night every month
