Once you have decided to spend your winter holidays in the sun, you have to consider Thailand with its majestic temples, street markets of Bangkok, white sandy beaches on ocean coastlines and incredible landscapes of palm-fringed islands. Mix buoyant city life and quiet beach relaxation for a winter adventure of a lifetime. Whether you prefer to go on a cruise on the Chao Phraya River or spend a week on the alluring shores of 'Thai Riviera', you will never regret picking Thailand to warm up your winter holidays.



It’s no surprise that Havana is considered one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in the Caribbean. Dive into the festive atmosphere of Cuba with all of its brightly painted streets and non-stop invigorative salsa rhythms. If you are after nightlife, Cuba can offer you a variety of buzzing bars and nightclubs, while during the sunny days you can relax on idyllic beaches or roam around the old town of Habana Vieja. December temperatures are around 23°C most of the time, but note that sometimes the weather can be quite rainy and cloudy this time of year.



If you are looking for a holiday with luxury and picture-perfect beaches, then nowhere can top the Maldives. Spoil yourself with a beach paradise at the picturesque Niyama, where you can taste a gourmet meal of fresh seafood while enjoying scenic island landscapes. Delight in the gentle Indian Ocean or relax on a cosy hammock. After the sun goes down, you can visit the popular underwater nightclub twenty feet under the surface for a cocktail.



Australia is for those who like to have everything at once. Travel across Australian cosmopolitan cities, visit gorgeous beaches and islands, explore breathtaking natural wonders, enjoy colourful wildlife – what else could you wish for your perfect winter holiday? Take a trip from Perth to Sydney, taste mouth-watering food and the exclusive wine of the Margaret River and finish your journey on the stunning white-sand beaches with the famous colourful coral reefs of world heritage-listed Lord Howe Island.


South Africa

Safari is a great idea for those who cannot imagine their life without a little bit of adventure and South Africa is just the right place to go exploring. Lions, buffalo, leopards and elephants with a variety of other wildlife make South Africa a worthwhile visit. Winter season is the perfect time to spend a holiday in South Africa, swimming with dolphins and enjoying the warm sunshine.
