#3 – Edinburgh, United Kingdom
If Christmas decorations are your thing, then Edinburgh in December is the right city for you as it is one of the most fun places you can go in the winter. It has everything.
A huge Christmas market that fills the majority of Princess Streets Gardens from street level all the way to the gardens itself, where you can find all kinds of Christmas items, foods, games and other fun activities like rides and attractions.
The Christmas lights are also amazing, so you will really enjoy walking the streets of Edinburgh with the spirit of Christmas coming at you from every corner of the city.
If you want to stay for New Year’s Eve keep in mind that the Hogmanay, as they call it, is one of the world’s greatest New Year celebrations, lasting 3 days (from December 30th to the 1st of January) and gathering about 150,000 people from Scotland and around the world.
#4 – The Philippines
If you just want to escape the harsh winter cold and spend your time in a paradisiac destination, the Philippines are a great warm place to visit.
In December, the country is in its “dry season”, which people consider to be the perfect time of the year to visit. You can enjoy yourself in the magnificent islands and use this vacation exclusively to relax. Or you can try more adventurous activities such as scuba diving and explore the marine life.
#5 – Miami, United States of America
Miami is also a great choice. It’s a city full of life, with gorgeous beaches, and a pleasant temperature in December. During the holidays there are many activities that please all types of travelers.
If you are into arts, this might be the perfect destination because the Art Basel – an acclaimed modern and contemporary art show – takes place during this time of the year.
#6 – New York, United States of America
Some people say that New York is the best place to visit in December in the United States. The snow might give the city a fascinating aura, but the freezing temperatures are guaranteed to scare most people away.
