From picturesque views to a concrete jungle, six christmas destinations you need to visit

This time of year is where all the magic happens, right? From the festive feeling to the John Lewis adverts and magical lights that are put up around the markets. These are just a few destinations you may want to visit over the Christmas period.

Scottish Highlands

If you’re in the mood for a more relaxed atmosphere away from the busy city. There are many museums, café,  fields, picturesque views and gorgeous wildlife. It’s very peaceful and you can cosy up with some blankets whilst sitting by the fire. It’s not that polluted so the stars are beautiful.

London

One of the most visited cities in the world and this place has no ends to what it does during this festive season. From Christmas markets to the giant Christmas tree that sits in Trafalgar Square, it’s a place you don’t want to miss.

Paris

Oh la la! What better place to spend Christmas than the City of Lights/Love? Paris is the most magical city in the world, it is and I will argue with you on this one – nicely ofc! From the twinkling lights on the Tour Eiffel to its shops and hot chocolate, you honestly can’t blame me for loving this place.

Imagine walking down the Champs-Élysées or shopping with Parisians. Watch the vlog below.

New York

A concrete jungle and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. From Fifth Avenue to ice skating at Central Park, it won’t be one you’ll ever forget. It is of course rather expensive to go to NY, especially if you’re flying from the UK so it’s worth saving up those pennies.

Also side note: this is such a tune, don’t you agree…Fairytale of New York  or if it’s too early for music, watch the video below for a Christmas in NY City to see if its your cup of tea.

Edinburgh

Ahhhh, my capital and arguably one of the most atmospheric cities in the UK. There’s so much life, history and culture here, especially over the festive season. From the Christmas decorations to Edinburgh Castle and the German markets, you can’t miss it.

Visit What’s On Edinburgh for more information.

Canada

When I think of Canada I for some reason think of a large cabin with a few rooms for guests, a large sitting area with sofas and blankets. Across from that is a bar where they serve warm drinks including Mulled Wine and Hot Chocolate – with marshmallows and whipped cream – may I add. Oh and we can’t forget the crackling fireplace.

But anyway, there is so much to do in Canada and you can visit cities like Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and Ottawa.

Check out what you can do at the Niagara Falls or a guide to Toronto’ light show. 

Where do you want wake up on Christmas day?

    I adored New York when I went. I think it would be so magical to go at Christmas time.
