The weather is warming up and summer is on the horizon… and that means it’s the perfect time to start dreaming of blissful end-of-year holidays. From January school holidays to snowy Christmas holidays, we have the best spots for you.

Have a White Christmas in the French Alps

For those chasing a warm climate closer to home, you can’t go past a Singapore holiday over the Christmas break. Bring your partner or the kids and head down to Orchard Road to admire the beautiful Christmas decorations, then celebrate the New Year in style at the Marina Bay Sands.

Afterwards, recover from the festivities with a stay at Club Med Bintan Island, where sun, sand and sea are aplenty. New Year’s Resolution to treat your body and soul… Check!

The ultimate Christmas present: a trip to the Maldives

While the bright blue waters of Western Australia and white sand beaches of Jervis Bay are incredible, nothing quite compares to a Maldives holiday. With azure waters, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and fresh seafood and fruit, you’d struggle to find somewhere quite as idyllic as the Maldives.

Ring in the New Year with champagne*, and celebrate with exciting evening entertainment – then recover the next day on the balcony of your overwater suite. Paradise in 2016? Yep, it’s here.

Tip: Club Med Kani is perfect for a summer holiday with kids, while The Finolhu Villas are the ideal romantic holiday destination and couples getaway.

Christmas, ski… and China? Yes, you read that correctly. As hosts of the 2022 Olympics, the recent years have seen China develop their ski fields to a world-class level. Beidahu, located in the Jilin province north of Beijing, is a winter wonderland over Christmas and January holidays. Home to the 2007 Winter Olympic Games, the ski runs snake through a beautiful national forest – and in the evenings, Club Med Beidahu offers local Northern hotpot, noodle, and dim sim dining.

Plus, if you’ve ever wanted to go to China, Christmas is great: the majority of Chinese cities are bustling over the Christmas and New Year break and don’t close until Chinese New Year.
