It's never too early to plan your vacation. And with so many amazing places to cover and so much pending ones on your bucket-list, you might as well start stimulating your brains already. With the Christmas (and of course, the new year) just a couple of months to go, here we list five of the best destinations you can take a trip to. New York is a city that's always up for fun, and more so during the holiday season. If you have the luxury of visiting Big Apple during Christmas, try the city's age-old tradition of ice skating at the Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park. Also, make time for the annual Radio City Christmas Spectacular show. Or simply go shopping at the glittery markets. If you want to take a break from the cliches of Christmas, head to the Thai capital city, Bangkok. Even during Christmas, the city is relatively warm. And one thing that this Asian city has got all figured out is its amazing nightlife. Spend your time at some of the best New Year Eve parties and witness the spellbinding fireworks at Central World Square. Sydney is one of the most meaningful places to be at, if you want to ring in the New Year in style. For starters, it is the first big city in the whole world to strike midnight. Also, those iconic fireworks at the Harbor Bridge and Opera House are nothing short of magical. Bonus: The temperature is comfortably warm compared to most Western countries. There could be no better Christmas lights than Aurora or the spectacular Northern lights. So head to Reykjavik and take your chance of spotting the amazing phenomenon. If you are planning to stay over for New Year's eve, know that it'll be worth it- filled with bonfires, singing, dancing and fireworks. Make sure to try the city's popular Christmas delight - the smoked lamb. You ought to spend at least one of your Christmas holidays marveling at the gorgeous Amsterdam Light festival, that runs from November 28 to January 20. There are many ways to witness the festival - canal cruise, boat trips, or on foot. And once December nears end, and paves way for New Year's eve- hit the clubs and dance till it's the new year.
