Manilla wins New Year’s Eve walking away (to the emergency room, probably).
Most world cities put on their spectacular NYE fireworks display over a bay, river, bridge, or some other kind of stage. It’s an approach that wisely keeps the explosions and incendiaries safely away from the surrounding (and probably drunk) populace. But not every city council is that conscientious or concerned — presenting the most epic fireworks display ever.
Watch this video of 2014 New Year’s Eve in the Philippines now and be amazed at Manilla’s impressive and blatant disregard for citizen safety, air quality, and common sense. Then, make plans to go visit the place next year.
