Most people only have one holiday per year, so naturally, many think of the summer as the opportune time to get away. However, if you’re a little tired of the same old Spanish trip abroad; why not take a new approach to your annual break?
Going on holiday during the winter can be a great option; firstly, you get to escape old Jack Frost (and the onslaught of weather-based conversation which accompanies him), and secondly, it can actually be quite cost efficient. Why not spend the money which usually goes on presents, food, decoration, more presents, drink, even more food… on something you’ll really enjoy?
If you’re thinking of taking a trip somewhere this winter, here’s a quick run-down of some of the best destinations to consider.
Ski resorts might be one of the most obvious winter destinations, but there’s many a good reason why. Filled with adventure, fun and excitement for the whole family, they can provide the perfect alternative Christmas abroad. With guaranteed snow, varied slopes, and a traditional village feel mixed with buzzing nightlife – Ischgl is one of the Alps’ best.
New York City, USA
If you’re more of a city dweller, now could be the perfect time to visit one of the greatest in the world. New York during Christmas time is undeniably magical; with festive cheer found on every street corner, it’ll add extra sparkle to endless tourist activities. You’ll need to pack your thermals of course – Manhattan doesn’t even do winter by halves.
Lanzarote, Canary Islands
If you’re looking for a fairly cheap option, somewhere not too far away, the Canary Islands would be a fantastic choice. It might not be bikini-weather, but with an average temperature of around 20 degrees in December – it’s still a lovely alternative to the coat and scarf combo. Also, there are some excellent discounts on flights and accommodation around this time of year, so make sure you shop around!
A winter holiday could be transformed into ultimate summer with a trip to Australia. If you’ve got the funds to splash out, Sydney is one of the top places to consider. With its combination of nightlife, cultural attraction and glorious sunshine – you might have to sacrifice your turkey – but with Christmas spent on the beach: we doubt you’ll miss it.
Finally, if you’re the type of person who appreciates ancient history – with its tombs, temples and pyramids – Cairo is bound to excite you. Full of natural wonder and mystery, it could be the perfect place to dispel those New Year blues. Remember it’s worth shopping around during January (even at the very last minute) to take advantage of any sales; a lot of airlines and money saving websites could help you save money on travel.
