2. CHIANG MAI, THAILAND
With the weather in the high twenties Thailand is always a winner for some winter sun. But for those who like a bit more than just the beach then Chiang Mai is the perfect choice. Uniquely hippy and undeniably laid-back, this place is a must for those who prefer to leave behind the stress of Christmas on the plane and really kick back. Chilled out vibes are the order of the town as visitors meander about sampling the good food, good times and even better shopping that can be found at many of the artisan stalls that line the town. We visit Chiang May on our awesome 14 day Northern Thailand adventure so if you're looking forward to a two week getaway over the December holidays, make sure to book onto our December 17th departure! We know you want to!

Leave the wooly hat at home and slip into your swimmers as you jet off to sun, sand and sea this Christmas in Asia. White stretches of beach replace white blanketed streets and bitter nights are swapped with hazy sunsets and swaying palms. Bottle Beach is the ultimate place for Christmas in the sun and you may even be able to find yourself a traditional Christmas dinner which you can eat in your bikini obviously!
