IMO, there is nothing like Times Square. I sound so touristy!

Anyways, what is the closest thing that you have seen that compares to Times Square?

Name the city and the part of that city that you are referring to. Also, a pic would be VERY helpful for everyone to compare.

Tokyo has many Time Square "look a likes". The most famous is hands down the one in Shinjuku.

In the U.S. only the Vegas strip could compare and that's not even close.

Have you ever been to Times Square? If you have, which do you think was better? I went to Times Square last year and really liked it. Although it wasn't one of my favorite parts of New York City.

I've been there, but never for New Year's. I would love to experience that. London on New Year's was such a riot, and I've never seen so many people in one place at any given time before (in my life) - stretched from Piccadilly to Soho and beyond...

I'll have to say Shibuya is the most Times Square like place in Tokyo.



Also, Los Angeles has just built their version of Times Square: L.A. Live.
