Where to go
December holidays are generally focused around wanting to soak up as much Christmas as you possibly can, or avoiding it at all costs! Europe’s Christmas markets make it perfect for the fanatics, whilst the sunnier destinations offer places to escape to for those who just want some peace and quiet…
It’s the perfect time of year for a family holiday if you want to celebrate a Christmas like no other. But it’s also a great time for adventure and wildlife if you want to savour something alternative…
Events and festivals
Of course, there are Christmas festivals and events abound throughout December, but that’s not all with whirling dervishes and film festivals to keep you entertained as well. Hogmanay in Scotland is something everyone should experience at least once to see in the new year…
Places to avoid
Holidays in December will generally be focused around finding idyllic snowy conditions or escaping to warmer climes. But there are some places that offer neither.
These are the worst places to visit in December…
- Malaysia – the rains are heavy in December as monsoon season really kicks in, so there’s a very high chance you’ll get very wet if you visit now.
- Europe – you face the risk of bad weather across Europe, but balanced with the possibility of idyllic winter scenes. Don’t go with any guarantees in mind, and if you are heading to Eastern Europe be prepared for some very chilly conditions.
