If you want to get involved with the crowd in the new year eve, you should stay in hotel, resort, or another inn nearby. First you have to be sure about the place you want to attend. Then you search and book the accomodation that available. I suggest you to do that months before December or you have to stay in a warm little tend accompanied by thousands of mosquitos.
