Have you planned your New Year's Eve celebrations yet? If you haven't don't hesitate to add Bali as one of the destinations you can consider!
I know what you're thinking. Bali means partying all night right? Nope! That's not all that you can do! Family folks, bring your children and enjoy the beauty of this magical Goddess Island! With scenic sights and the warm Indonesian population, it is without a doubt, one of the best places for you to be making New Year resolutions!
Kuta Beach, Bali, Indonesia
For some family fun in the sun, sand and sea, head down to the annual carnival at the Kuta Beach, located on the south side of Bali during the day. Here you'll relive your childhood memories with carnival snacks and games.

When evening falls head to the cafes and restaurants in Kuta, Seminyak or Legian where you can wine and dine as you watch the sunset over the beach.
Love birds, for some quiet and alone time, Jimbaran is the place you would want to be!
Immerse in your senses with the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks with the cool night breeze brushing against your skin. Anyone planning a proposal, this might be the time and place for you to do it!
Puputan Badung Square
At the stroke of midnight, be sure to look up into the skies as the entire city crackles with spectacular fireworks! Be sure you're near Kuta Beach, Legian, Puputan Badung Square or Seminyak to catch the best glimpse of these wonderful sparklers!
If I have convinced you enough to plan a trip to Bali, here's a tip! To join in the New Year's Eve fun, be sure to find an accommodation near to the party you're heading to. Be smart and choose to stay in your party place instead of party hopping! You wouldn't want to be stuck in a cab during the last few seconds of 2016. Traffic will sure be in a standstill so make sure you've planned this ahead!
After all the party madness, if you're still sober before you head home in the next couple of days, be sure to swing by Krishna, one of the best places to grab some Balinese souvenirs for friends and family!
Come, join in the party in Bali!
