Not just introverts, there are a lot of people who want to welcome their new year in nature's lap away from most of the crowd. Thus, for them, we have the perfect solution, camping! The following are the best places to camp at this new year's and celebrate it in a much healthier and happier way.

Anjuna

For those who want to spend their new year's at a place away from their home and a lot of crowds, but not wanting to be alone, Anjuna is just the right place. Anjuna in Goa is a laid-back coastal village, which has lesser tourist footfall than the rest of the Goa. It makes it somewhat secluded, but also at the same time, it does have a few people around to not make you feel alone. And camping near a beach and hearing the waves crash at the shore is one of the most satisfying and soothing ever. So, to spend your new year's with one of the most precious things in the world, water, go head towards Anjuna.
