Get Away from It All This Christmas

 

Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year. Cities like Hong Kong are covered in bright lights and incredible festivities flow throughout the season, while winter destinations are snowy and charming.

 

For many couples, Christmas is the most romantic time of the year, and the festival represents an opportunity for intimacy and romance. These couples seek out Christmas escapes - out of the city, country or even the continent that they stay in - aiming for the most romantic holiday possible.

 

While it may be too late to plan a Christmas getaway this year, these five destinations are among the best romantic Christmas destinations in Europe and Asia.

 

 

Harbin, China

 

Harbin is home to the world’s grandest, most ambitious winter spectacle - The Harbin Ice and Snow Festival. Since 1985, it’s become the biggest attraction of Harbin; and for good reason! It’s an enchanting and awe-inspiring spectacle, home to the greatest ice sculptures on earth. It’s the perfect getaway, allowing you to walk around and experience ancient and medieval architectural wonders as well as the ephemeral ice creations.

 

 

Lapland, Finland

 

If you want to celebrate an ‘authentic’ Christmas, travel to Lapland in Finland. Here, have a very snowy Christmas with real reindeer! The most romantic place to stay is the glass igloo in Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, giving you a panoramic view of Lapland’s gorgeous landscape. You could also try the Lapland Hotel Ounasvaara Chalets for a great log cabin experience. What a perfect way to spend a romantic Christmas: Inside a cosy cabin, cuddling up next to a fire and having a warm beverage. Life doesn't get much better than that!

                     

 

Nagano, Japan

 

Nagano is a place for both adventure and relaxation. One of the biggest attractions is the Japanese hot springs, where you can spend a relaxing day with your partner in the cosy heat. It’s a beautiful snow-covered town with a lot of winter sports activities, historical sights and museums to visit.

 

 

 

Sapa, Vietnam

 

If you’re interested in spending your Christmas secluded from crowds, there’s no better place than Sapa. Located in Northwestern Vietnam, the Mường Hoa Valley contains beautiful hills and the most scenic terrace farms in the world. Walk through Mường Hoa valley and hike through paddy fields and isolated villages. There may not be snow, but there are few places in the world that contain natural beauty like this!

 

 

 

Bruges, Belgium

 

 

European towns are the most aesthetically beautiful in the world. A prime example of this is Bruges in Belgium, a true fairytale town! Its world-class beer, famous chocolates and pretty streets make it the ideal romantic Christmas escape. With Bruges as a base, you can also easily travel to surrounding areas and experience the magic of the region.

 

Every country in the world has its share of romantic getaways. Whether you prefer beaches, mountains or cities, the most important thing about a romantic getaway is the presence of your significant other. Travel together, enrich yourselves and have a very Merry Christmas filled with love and joy!
