Top Destinations for the Holidays

Guest post by Paul Kessler

As we draw nearer to the holidays, more and more people are rushing to get their holiday travel plans in gear: plotting vacation leaves, packing up suitcases and the like. Deciding where to celebrate, though, is not as simple. The tricky part is the actual choosing process, as the holiday traveler’s choices are endless. Still fretting over where to spend the holidays this year? Dash through our list below and find yourself a merry little Christmas.

1. Singapore City, Singapore

Watch in awe as the Orchard Road gets wrapped in a beautiful, twinkling Christmas glow. This year, the Orchard Road’s theme is Christmas Blooms in Singapore. The Switch On Ceremony will be on November 19, 2011.

2. New York City, USA

For a more bustling vacation, head on over to The Rock at New York City. Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree, a spectacular eye-catcher with over five miles of lights covering its entirety, is lit up starting the week after Thanksgiving.

3. Sydney, Australia

Don’t want to get cooped up in the cold for the holidays? Fly to Sydney and enjoy warm weather, ice cold drinks and Christmas carols by the beach! The Bondi Beach Park will be hosting this year’s Carols by the Sea on December 7, 2011.

4. London, UK

By Lord Dickens! The London Walking Tour is a definite holiday experience. Enjoy a whole day of going across London and finding more about the places where characters Pickwick, Scrooge and Tiny Tim supposedly lived.

5. Reykjavik, Iceland

Feast your eyes on this winter wonderland: Iceland’s local folklore has not one but thirteen Santas bearing goodie bags at Christmas Parties. Have the chance to meet the Ladle Licker, Skyr Gobbler, Meat Hook and the rest of the 13 Yulemen of Iceland beginning December 12.

  1. I’d love to add Maldives to that list. It’s a beautiful island resort. Most beautiful beaches in the world.

  2. I love to add Barcelona,Spain and Paris France to the List.As far as Barcelona is concerned its a combination of tradition and Modernization.

  3. I think Boulder, Colorado has to be on this list, if it were to be a list of cities in the USA. The amount of Christmas spirit here is unbelievable here, and the Rockies is not a common backdrop.

  4. You forgot to include Newfoundland and Labrador.

    One of the most beautiful places around and we even celebrate our New Years 1/2 hour earlier than the rest of North America.

    You have to be pretty gutsy to travel during the holiday season, but some of those places sure look worth it 🙂 I love the comment about Boulder, Colorado. I live in Colorado and have never been to Boulder for Christmas but I bet it looks spectacular!

  6. I agree, Maldives, Barcelona, Spain, Paris and France and all these other beautiful places are great, and must have made the list.

  7. On your list I want to go to Reykjavik, Iceland! Iceland has been producing really great otherworldly artists so I’ve been pretty much in wonder of what they have got in their waters there. I would love to go to the Central European countries too and Vienna as well.

  8. I would love to visit Singapore or Australia. I don’t want to be stuck in the extreme weather conditions of NY or England. Dubai would also be good it is also nice and warm this time of year.

  9. Love your list. I’d have to add the ski villages of Colorado – Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen, Steamboat, to name a few. All are great holiday destination. There’s nothing like piles of snow to get you in the holiday spirit.
