Edinburgh (PRWEB UK) 20 December 2013
With Christmas less than a week away, many Britons are preparing for a traditional festive season at home with family and friends. However, over the years, we have seen a growing number of people leaving the cold winds of Britain behind and heading to warmer climes.
Whilst in the past, sun starved Brits have jetted off to short haul destinations such as Spain and its islands, one recent report suggests many are heading to more exotic long haul locations such as Thailand and even China.
Here, Onetwotrip.co.uk suggests a few alternative destinations to spend the festive season.
If you don't mind the cold weather but are looking for a fabulous Christmas experience, head to New York. This bustling city becomes a winter wonderland over the festive period, with snow covering the streets of Manhattan and stores exhibiting their latest Christmas window displays. Head to Central Park for a bit of Christmas ice skating before enjoying a festive lunch at one of the fabulous restaurants close by. If you manage to stay in New York until the New Year, make sure you head to Times Square, to celebrate the turning of the year in typical US style.
Return flights from London airports are available throughout December from just £475
For a real winter wonderland, jet off to Reykjavik, Iceland's capital city.
