    So initially I planned Paris. Following the recent tragedy, Paris just might not be the best place to visit for a someone with an Arabic name and that too a Pakistani. Do you have any suggestion on some hardcore New Year parties preferably in western countries? I did Koh Phangan last year and that was one nasty party.

    I'm not too sure about EU and US. Spain in EU makes a little sense though and Canada in North America. What say?

    Isn't there women-only spots in NYC? I haven't really seen drunk people bothering females in a crowded place.

    There I've been.

    hehehe he isnt my uncle he is dad's uncle so imagine the generation gap...Since I was at his home...his rules :D

    Plus I think he wasnt bothered about "attacks" but more about people getting crazy...


    And when you read news like this: The worst things about celebrating New Year's Eve in Times Square - Matador Network

    New Year’s Eve in Times Square sums up what’s wrong with New York - MarketWatch

    Doesnt actually make it any more welcoming

    Then again my dad's cousin wanted to bring us and he got told off by uncle :( with questions like kerna kiya hai? Plus I was flying out the next day (yea cheap tickets) after a lunch at counsin's place so uncle was like get some rest....woke up with the fireworks going on...

    Then there are these articles you read and are like...I am warmer in doors:

    The worst things about celebrating New Year's Eve in Times Square - Matador Network

    It’s mid-afternoon on New Year’s Eve, and Times Square is already my worst nightmare - The Washington Post

    But uncle let cousin bring us out on Christmas eve....we walked around and were out on 30th December too...Mind you...you had to scream so that the person next to you could hear you...I nearly lost my voice :(

    Makes it all the more exciting. You just might be getting old. :P
    And what's with 'Karna kya hai'? As if everyone else is out to work on some governmental project. Go crazy is what Karna hai. I'd really like to sometime end my year in places like NYC, Totonto or where ever it snows basically. :D

    You can check out TimeOut New York for some neat party places. They update it every week, but they get filled up quickly.

    These are all in Times Square, you're really lucky to get a neat spot in Times Square where you can see the ball drop. In my suggestion try to find a place where police are closer so people will be less rowdy.

    It's hard enough to get a good spot in Times Square though. My family did the reverse, instead of staying at home we tried seeing the ball drop in Times Square. In the end it wasn't exactly our happiest New Year. :(
