Hot destinations in December

For a much-needed dose of winter sun, why not jet off to the diverse countries of South America to soak up the rhythms of Samba in Brazil or discover Argentina’s Lake District in full bloom. On the other hand, why not let the tropical rainforests of Costa Rica or Panama tempt you to explore the delights of Central America on your winter holiday?

Another option is South Africa, a firm favourite for those who want to spend their holiday sunbathing on the beach and sightseeing in the city. The wildlife spotting is another draw, especially if you’re planning a family trip with animal-loving children! 

Of course, Asia offers a world of opportunities for travel in December. Go island-hopping in Indonesia, journey through the deserts and palaces of Rajasthan in India or spot elephants in the wilds of Sri Lanka! The idyllic beaches of Thailand and the luxurious resorts of the Maldives are particularly popular choices for a winter getaway, and ideal for a December honeymoon.

Although a trip to Europe might not bring guaranteed sunshine in December, you should consider an unforgettable winter holiday to one of Europe’s beautiful and historic cities. December is a time filled with festivities wherever you travel, so a city break is great for getting to know the local culture and enjoying some last-minute Christmas shopping. Alternatively, a winter trip in time for New Year’s Eve is an unforgettable experience as you can celebrate with the locals and join in any unique traditions! 

A welcome break from the routine, plan your winter holiday today. Discover the best places to visit in December and beat the chill this winter!
