With the holiday season coming up, it’s time to start planning your Christmas vacations. Whether you’re going with family or friends, there are many destinations to choose from. During this time, you can visit a place that has snow and enjoy winter activities and pile on as many layers of clothing as you can. If you don’t like the cold, you can always opt to travel to an island where you can go on donkey rides and walk on the beach as you watch the sunset. Whatever your preference, we thought we’d give you some choices to narrow down your list. Read through and let us know where you would like to go.

Seoul is a great place to visit all year round but try to make your way there for Christmas. From Times Square to Seoul Plaza, lights and Christmas decorations can be found everywhere. If you’re traveling with your family, take some time to visit the Christmas festivals in theme parks. One is the Lotte World Christmas Miracle. Here, there are concerts, parades, and musicals along with Santa’s Village. Another is Everland, where part of the Christmas fantasy is the lighting festival. There is a tower tree with bright lights, a milky way, and a moonlight parade.
