Best places to holiday in December

Perhaps you fancy a different way to celebrate a traditional Christmas this year, or want to treat yourself to a pre-Christmas adventure or break? And who would blame you? It’s a busy time – so here are some of our recommendations if you decide to do something a little different.


An ancient landscape with over 50,000 years of indigenous culture, jaw-dropping coastlines and laidback charm, there is nowhere else like Australia. From coastal city charm and baking ochre-covered outback to the vast Great Barrier Reef, December is a fantastic time to explore Australia. Less crowded, warm and dry, wildflowers are also in full bloom. It really is an adventure of a lifetime.

New York, USA

If you’re a huge fan of Christmas festivities, there’s nowhere quite like New York City lit up with twinkling lights and Christmas trees that are three-storeys high. In the city that never sleeps, shop till you drop in iconic stores, wrap up warm, sip hot chocolate and watch as skaters hit the ice rink in Central Park. As well as visiting all the famous sights including the Statue of Liberty, Met Museum and Empire State Building, this exciting metropolis has so much to offer.

Antigua, Caribbean

Get your fix of Caribbean sunshine in Antigua. Think pristine white sands, top snorkelling spots – such as Dickenson Bay and Half Moon Bay – games of cricket and colourful summer carnivals – and you’ve got a small taster of this charming island. The rainy season has subsided, and now only warm and dry conditions will greet you at every turn. Time to sit back, and enjoy island life...
