New York sover aldrig - til glæde for globale rejsende

LONDON, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

27.000 rejsende fra hele verden har stemt på New York som bedste by for natteliv

Lider man af søvnløshed, leder man efter gode nytårsløjer, eller har man bare ubændig lyst til en vild nat i byen? Så er det måske relevant at vide, at New York er byen, hvor man finder verdens bedste natteliv! Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com blandt 27.000 deltagere fra det meste af verden.

The Big Apple er verdens bedste by, hvis man vil have en rigtig god bytur!

27.000 rejsende fra det meste af verden har således stemt byen, der aldrig sover, ind på førstepladsen over de storbyer, som man kan have den bedste fest i. New York er dermed suverænt den bedste party-by i verden. Hernæst følger gamblerparadiset Las Vegas og urbane London.

Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com.

Europa er bedst til fest

Undersøgelsen viser også, at selvom både første- og andenpladsen på listen går til byer i USA, så er de seks ud af de ti bedste nattelivs-byer europæiske.

Både London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam og Madrid er således repræsenteret i top 10. Mens Los Angeles og Bangkok, som den eneste asiatiske by, indtager niende- og tiendepladsen.

"New York og Las Vegas er byer, hvor man altid er garanteret et godt rejseeventyr. Men det er forskelligheden i de europæiske byer, der gør dem så interessante og spændende for rejsende fra hele verden," mener Alison Couper fra Hotels.com og fortsætter:

"Der er derfor også mange forskellige oplevelser at hente på tværs af Europa, uanset om det er en nat på en af de berygtede klubber i Berlin, middag på en flydende restaurant eller hygge på coffee shop i Amsterdam eller et besøg på en af Paris' små, intime barer og spillesteder."

Danskerne har den bedste fest i London    

Danskerne er da heller ikke nødvendigvis enige i, at New York er det bedste sted at feste. På den danske top 10 indtager New York nemlig en fjerdeplads - efter både London, Berlin og Paris.

På femtepladsen udpeger vi desuden København, der ikke figurerer på listen over bedste party-byer i den globale undersøgelse.

  2. Las Vegas
