    Arguably the best place to see in the New Year in style is Sydney. Expect one of the world's most spectacular firework displays, against the backdrop of Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Enjoy a New Year's Day BBQ at Bondi before a scenic sunset walk to Coogee. Or head to 'Field Day' - a music festival in The Domain (also the venue for the fabulous free family Christmas Carol Concert). With a vibrant Santa Fest in Darling Harbour in the run up to Christmas Eve, concerts for children and spectacular light projections, why not arrive early and spend the entire festive period in the sunshine Down Under.

    A visit to Brazil is great at any time of the year thanks to the fun-loving locals, but the partying takes on a whole new level for New Year's Eve. Join the Rio locals (cariocas), dressed in white as they celebrate on sunny Copacabana beach - the festive period here co-incides with their summer. For real wow-factor, book into the iconic Copacabana Palace - with a range of dining and party options and a private balcony from which to view the spectacular fireworks display below, it is hard to beat and you can enjoy your New Year's Day lie-in in sumptuous comfort before heading down to breakfast and then relaxing pool-side.

    For the ultimate Christmas present. head to Lapland in Northern Finland - a region of unspoilt wilderness, which must surely feature on everyone's bucket list. Enjoy reindeer-sleigh trips to see Santa, husky-sledding to witness the Northern Lights, snow-shoeing and snowmobiling and plenty of Arctic wildlife, whilst snuggling up in a cosy log-wood cabin of your very own, complete with Finnish sauna.
