Spend your New Year's Eve in Myanmar
Holiday festivities are becoming more and more popular in Myanmar as international influence continues to make its way into Burmese culture. Spending New Year’s Eve in Myanmar will give travelers something much more adventurous to do than watch a ball drop.

 
  • Visit Kandawgyi Park for a royal New Year's Eve experience

    Kandawgyi Park hosts one of the largest New Year’s Eve gatherings in Myanmar. Stroll along the boardwalk surrounding parts of Kandawgyi Lake and be mesmerized by the grand floating Karaweik Palace lit up at night. Stop by a number of waterfront bars and restaurants to grab a bite while waiting for the fireworks display, or make a reservation to enjoy a cultural performance and international buffet inside the Karaweik.

  • Watch fireworks from above Yangon

    Twinkly clusters of color bursts can be seen going off all over Yangon on New Year’s Eve. For a crowd, go to Kandawgyi Park. For what feels more like a private fireworks showing with a better view from above, head to a rooftop bar or a friend’s balcony. Vista Bar has one of the best views of the Shwedagon Pagoda at night.

  • There’s always karaoke

    Karaoke is private-room style in Myanmar. There are many places to go. Some are shadier than others, but all promise a good time. Karaoke joints such as the Music Box in Yangon offer special set menus for New Year’s Eve including drinks, food and a little (or a lot of) mic time. Be careful not to miss out on the fireworks because of too much singing, though.

  • Party in Yangon and then head for a beach

    Several luxury bars, restaurants and hotels in Yangon such as the Sule Shangri-La and Sedona Hotel hold themed parties with lavish countdowns for New Year’s Eve. Party it up in style in Yangon, and then recover for a few days on one of Myanmar’s gorgeous beaches to start the new year off right and relaxed.

  • Literally ring in the new year at a pagoda

    Looking for something a bit more local to do for New Year’s Eve? Find the nearest pagoda and ring in the new year with a bell. Bells are a big thing in Myanmar. Not only in size but also in daily use as an important aspect of Buddhist culture. Nearly every sacred site will have a bell or 10 to ding. It’s customary to hit a bell with a piece of wood after doing an act of merit such as praying.
