Now as the most joyful festive season is coming, may be you feel like spending it in a different way that the usual dinner at home, meeting family and friends. If you want to do something different and new this year and beat the Christmas stress of buying expensive gifts and meeting the expectations of all the family members, sign up for a holiday trip. There are certain favorite places on earth that are especially charming during Christmas. You can pick a place to relax or a place to enjoy active sports, as well as a place for your kids to remember. The tour agencies are offering plenty of options that vary in duration, destination and price, so basically there is something for everyone and most probably you will be tempted by two or three destinations at least.
If you want a traditional Christmas experience with a lot of snow and excellent opportunities for skiing and snowboarding (not to mention the exciting après ski bars and the busy nightlife), then head to the skiing heaven – the Kitzbuhel resort in the Tyrol region of the Austrian Alps. In case skiing is not your thing and you dream about a warm and sunny place, then head towards the Maldives, the Dominican Republic or the island of Bali. If you want something exciting and close to nature, than arrange a safari trip in India or a whale watching trip in Mexico. Your kids will always appreciate a visit to Disneyland Paris or the Harry Potter Orlando Resort. In case you are single, then go watching (and may be dancing) during the street celebrations in Rio de Janeiro. If you are in your golden years, plan a holiday in Rome and attend the midnight mass in the impressive St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City or spend a week in Spain or in France.
As you know Christmas is that special time of the year, when we have to stop and thank for what we have, but also it is time to relax and gain strength for the New Year that is coming. So, if your travel agent wants to spoil you with a five star hotel accommodation, great restaurants, spa services for free or bonus tours, take them all. Even so, if for some reasons you stick to the traditional Christmas time at home surrounded by family and friends, but still dream about a trip – well, there is a tip that you should follow. During the first two weeks of January you can get a really bargain price for a great trip. The so called “dead weeks” will offer you amazing savings on hotel prices, airplane tickets and cruises. These are the cheapest prices that the traveler might get and they are reduced with more than sixty percent if compared to the prices during the Christmas holidays when the cost of the airfare and the accommodation is the most expensive. Thus, budget-oriented travelers with flexible programs are welcome to enjoy the special offers from the travel agencies.
We recommend that you stay in a furnished apartment London or in an aparthotels in Paris for the Christmas holidays.
