Christmas Holiday Destinations

The Christmas holidays give everyone the chance to get together – but that doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. If you’re undecided about how to spend Christmas, why not take a look at our Christmas holidays abroad? Whether you’re searching for a cheap festive getaway, a sunny Christmas or a snowy winter wonderland, we’ve got the right option for you.

If you want to spend Christmas in the sun, then places like Australia, Mexico and Thailand should be on your list. But we understand that spending Christmas abroad doesn’t always mean lying on a beach – for some, only a cold Christmas will do. So, if you want to get away for Christmas without going somewhere hot, we’ve got you covered. If you go to New York, for instance, there’s a high chance you’ll get a white Christmas, while Japan is the perfect choice for a very different cultural experience. Take a look at our top Christmas holidays abroad and start planning your festive getaway.

Best Places for a Christmas Holiday Abroad

Christmas in New York

Few places are as magical as New York at Christmas. The Big Apple is undoubtedly one of the best places to visit in December, thanks to its endless list of festive activities. You can go ice-skating in Central Park, see Fifth Avenue’s light shows and festive shop windows, and visit the giant tree at the Rockefeller Centre. And no Christmas in New York would be complete without tickets to the famous Radio City Christmas Spectacular. If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, New York is a good choice – it has a much higher chance of snow than the UK. You can open your presents on Christmas morning, then wrap up warm and go for a stroll through Central Park.

Christmas in Japan

If you fancy something completely different from your usual festivities, Christmas in Japan ticks all the boxes. Christmas isn’t a Japanese tradition so it’s not a national holiday – most schools close on Christmas Day, but a lot of businesses remain open. Couples exchange gifts on Christmas Eve, but most people prefer to give presents on New Year’s Eve, which is a much bigger occasion in Japan. Meanwhile, fried chicken is the order of the day for Christmas dinner, and Japanese Christmas cake is a sweet sponge topped with whipped cream and strawberries. So if you want a Christmas holiday abroad with a twist, Japan is a fantastic choice. Plus, you could take the kids to Tokyo Disney Resort to see the Christmas Parade – what a present that would be.

A Hot Christmas Abroad

If your idea of Christmas abroad involves a beach, you’ve got a number of options. Generally, the further away you go in December, the better the weather – so if you decide to spend Christmas in Australia, you’ll be guaranteed sunshine. Several countries in Asia also enjoy a hot Christmas. Thailand and India, for instance, see temperatures in the thirties. If you’d prefer slightly cooler weather – but still much warmer than the UK – consider spending Christmas in Dubai, South Africa or Florida. Wherever you decide to go, a hot Christmas abroad gives you the chance to experience a very different day. Need more inspiration? Take a look at our Christmas holidays in the sun.
