People who want to escape from the harsh conditions of the British winter this Christmas will find a large number of sun filled destinations to choose from. Of course, no matter where you choose to roam this winter you will want to make sure that you invest in holiday insurance, which will ensure that you are protected every step of the way.
Thailand is a great place to retreat to if you find the holiday season in the United Kingdom a little bit overwhelming. Thailand boasts a whole host of beautiful islands and beaches to choose from, ranging from popular stretches of sand on islands such as Phuket and Samui to smaller, more chilled out sun kissed destinations. People who like to party will be able to let their hair down on islands such as Pha Ngan and Samed, while Thailand’s main cities are great places to indulge in a spot of shopping and soak up a little culture.
Bali is famous for containing some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, making this a fantastic Christmas retreat for sun worshippers. The waters that lap the sand of the beaches on Bali are crystal clear and excellent places for practising water sports such as snorkelling and scuba diving. Bali also features a richly diverse culture and a thriving nightlife scene, which are just waiting to be enjoyed.
The beaches in Malaysia are also among the best in the world, and this is a great place to celebrate Christmas. Unlike Thailand, Christmas is widely celebrated throughout Malaysia, especially in cities such as Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia features an endless number of islands where there are plenty of stretches of sand to spread out on. One of the great things about Malaysia is that it also features a wide range of other areas of intense natural beauty for visitors to explore, such as the rain forests of Borneo and the juggles and rolling hills of the Cameron Highlands.
Australia’s Gold Coast can be found along the east of the country and has long been a popular destination among surfers. There are a large number of high end resorts in this part of the world that cater to the every desire of visitors. Australia also features a number of other excellent Christmas destinations such as Great Barrier Reef and Tasmania.
