La Big Apple pour une dernière nuit de folie avant la fin du monde

GENÈVE, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

27,000 voyageurs à travers le monde élisent la vie nocturne new-yorkaise meilleure au monde  

Genève, le 13 décembre 2012 - Êtes-vous en quête du meilleur endroit où passer une dernière nuit de folie avant la fin du monde prédite par le calendrier maya pour le 21 décembre ? Ne cherchez pas plus loin : New York est LA ville reine de la vie nocturne, selon une étude récente de Hotels.com, portail de réservation en ligne le plus consulté au monde. L'étude globale d'une palette de 27, 000 voyageurs a en effet démontré que la Big Apple se classe première en termes de divertissements nocturnes. Le paradis du jeu, Las Vegas, est deuxième, suivi de près par Londres.

L'étude a également révélé que, bien que l'or et l'argent reviennent aux États-Unis, six villes du Top Ten se trouvent en Europe. Outre Londres, Paris, Barcelone, Berlin, Amsterdam et Madrid rejoignent la liste des meilleures destinations nocturnes, tandis que Los Angeles et Bangkok, seule ville asiatique du palmarès, complètent la liste gagnante.

"New York et Las Vegas sont des destinations imparables pour goûter à l'aventure du voyage. Mais c'est la variété des villes européennes qui les rend si intéressantes et excitantes pour les voyageurs du monde entier", souligne Alison Couper de Hotels.com. "Le continent européen offrent tant d'expériences différentes : une nuit dans un club alternatif berlinois, Amsterdam et ses restaurants le long des canaux et sa culture des coffee shops, ou Paris et ses petits cafés intimistes et ses cabarets".

La majorité des Suisses interrogées ont cependant élu la vie nocturne de Zurich deuxième après celle de New York, suivie de Paris, Londres et Berlin. Il est toutefois intéressant de constater en regardant les résultats de plus près que les Suisses Romands préfèrent Paris à toute autre destination nocturne.  

Et que cette dernière nuit surpasse toutes les autres !

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.
