Time to put your party hats on because the New Year is nearly here.

Hanoi

Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square near Hoan Kiem Lake is always packed on New Year's Eve, and this year will be no exception. Instead of traditional fireworks, there will be a countdown party hosted by chart-topping Vietnamese artists along with Ummet Ozcan, a world famous DJ.
