German and African cultures combine for a travel experience like no other in the world.

9. Johannesburg: South Africa is the most liberal country in Africa and most accepting of the LGBT community. If you find yourself in “The City of Gold” on New Year’s Eve, there are several great places to celebrate. There are gay and lesbian bars with special events in the neighborhoods of Boksburg and Melville, as well as a few great venues in JoBurg’s Design District.

8. Buenos Aires: Feliz Ano Nuevo! There are amazing parties happening throughout Argentina’s capital city but most of the gay New Year’s action will take place at venues in Microcentro/Monserrat, Recoleta and Villa Crespo.
