New York: Europe's top New Year's destination
27 Nov 2012 - New York is the top New Year's Eve destination for European travellers, according to current booking data from Opodo UK, Opodo France, Opodo Germany and Opodo Italy.
Despite its distance across the pond, so far the Big Apple has taken the biggest bite of flight, city break and package holiday bookings in the UK, France and Italy. Only Opodo Germany's customers want to see in 2013 more elsewhere, with Berlin in the top spot and New York trailing in at just 10th place.
There is, however, full consensus on the best beach destination for New Year's Eve, with Bangkok the top choice across all countries, and second overall. Proving that she still hasn't lost her allure after her epic year, London is the third most popular choice overall - with only the French excluding the British capital from their top five.
Data for Opodo UK customers alone reveals a wide range of requirements for the final night of 2012. The top 10 list is, in order: New York, Bangkok, Lagos (Nigeria), London, Cape Town, Sydney, Reykjavik, Dubai, Berlin and Jo'burg.
