For one of the more unique ways to spend New Year’s Eve then head to Apia, Samoa, to be among the first people in the world to ring in the New Year.

Until recently, Samoa was one of the last places to greet the New Year;

however, a recent shift of the International Date Line means it’s now one of the first.

Spend New Year’s Eve in one of the island’s resorts, and make sure to stay up and watch the first sunrise of the year over the Pacific Ocean.
