Flying out for the holidays?
We know it’s only September, but planning for Christmas is already at the forefront of our minds. Work, present shopping, and finding the perfect Christmas jumper aside, deciding where to spend Christmas Day itself can be tricky, and if you’re not jetting off to visit family in far-flung lands, Hong Kong has plenty of destinations to make the day extra special, right on its doorstep.
What’s more, with Christmas day falling on a Monday this year, you can snag yourselves ten, blissful days off work, just by booking three days of annual leave (27, 28 and 29 December). Just the excuse we need to book that dream trip! Think it’s too late to book for the holidays? According to Skyscanner, the best time to buy flights for Christmas is actually during the week of October 22nd. Online travel agent Opodo’s recent study also backs this, finding that September and October are, on average, the best months to book flights at lower prices.
With this in mind why not take a look at some of our picks for a Christmas trip, whether you’re a ski-loving snow bunny, or just want to lie on a beach and forget all about the holidays, we might just be able to tempt you to book that trip…
