14 Instagrams of New Year’s Eve Around the World

14 Instagrams of New Year’s Eve Around the World


We’ve all seen images on TV of New Year’s Eve around the world, particularly at iconic spots like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Times Square. For those of us in the Western Hemisphere, half the fun of New Year’s Eve day is watching as parts of the world enter the new year ahead of you, and seeing how others celebrate.

To cap off 2013, we asked our tour guides and partners in destinations all over the world to Instagram their New Year’s Eve to show us how they’re celebrating 2014.

From Melbourne to Los Angeles, Delhi to Rio, we followed dozens of people and cities as they welcomed 2014.

Here are our fourteen favourite shots to kick off 2014:
