By now the mad exodus out of Beijing is in full swing, and you might feel like you’re left sitting here with a jigsaw box full of different friend groups, and you’re not sure what picture will result from this predicament. Never fear, New Year’s in this city isn’t a terrifying thought, you just need to be prepared for it. So round up those troops together and get ready to take to the streets enriched with the following knowledge that you’re going to make the start of 2015 the best start ever (for real this time, you swear).
Location, location, location
“OMG where are you gonna be?!” Choosing a physical location to see in the start of the new year can feel overbearing in a monstrous sprawl like Beijing, but lucky for you we’ve compiled a few sexy lists for you to peruse and choose your hotspot. For those who want to feast lavishly you should check out this list, while those of us who want some banging beats bringing in the stroke of midnight (and the potential to find a cute lip-smacking partner) should look over here instead.
Get out of Beijing car(d)
All of a sudden it’ll be 6am, and you’ll be stumbling out half-blind with jianbing in one hand while the other flails like a limp octopus to hail what will be a nightmare situation of zero available cabs. How about locking in some wheels before hitting the champagne with a taxi reservation app on your phone? Currently your top choices in this matter come from Dididache, Yidaoyongche, and Uber, so have a browse to decide how to get the most miles out of your Mao’s.
Meals and more on wheels
If you’re like me you know January 1st is one of those days you already have written down in your diary as a write-off. And because functioning like a respectable human being is probably not going to happen, you may as well pay someone else do your dirty legwork for you and bring forth recovery food straight to your doorstep. Browse our list of food delivery networks here, or for those who can stomach a round of morning-after celebrations, get your home bar promptly re-stocked by using one of these alcohol delivery services.
