There are endless activities for you to do here. Not to mention relaxing on the beach watching the most stunning sunsets! Canggu is all you need this winter.

The nights are drawing in and the chilly morning's are upon us. Before we know it, Santa Claus will be knocking on our doorstep. If you want to escape this winter there is no better place to visit than Koh Phangan. With Christmas celebrations kept to a minimum, you could be relaxing on a secluded beach whilst diving into that long lost book you have been meaning to read for the past year. There is something for everyone here. If you’re the more adventurous type you could take a Muay Thai lesson or perhaps take a leap to the famous ‘Slip N fly’. This island has it all. We recommend Echo Beach hostel which is idyllic if you're looking to fall asleep listening to the waves and wake up with a picturesque sea view.
It is no surprise that Koh Phangan is one of the best destinations to visit this December / January. So why not have a browse here for further details.
Siem Reap is another one of our best destinations to visit in December / January if you are looking for a paradise winter warmer. Their winter is characterised by dry, sunny weather with low humidity. The average temperature is around 26 °C throughout the country, which makes temple touring the best activity to do. Our 12 Day Cambodia Explorer begins in Siem Reap, where we venture to watch the sunrise at the famous Angkor Watt temple. You could then take a river cruise along Kampot and unwind on the most gorgeous island – Koh Rong Samloem. The perfect mix of relaxation and culture!
As Vietnam is a long & narrow country, climate conditions vary considerably. With 20°C being the lowest in the North to 27°C in the South, Vietnam has to be another one of our best destinations to visit in December / January. Mui Ne, which lays on the South East of Vietnam, offers a warming heat with low humidity in December / January. Not only a stunning coastal town, but it is also home to the most breathtaking sand dunes. Made up from Red and white sand, the dunes are the perfect place to get those Facebook profile pics at sunset!
So there we have it, just a little injection of travel inspiration for you!
