Top 5 Christmas Adventures

Planning a trip for the holiday season can never start early enough – do you go for an all time classic destination or do you choose something new and exciting? If you're living in the Northern Hemisphere, perhaps you are hoping to escape the cold and wet winter this Christmas and escape to a summer climate- or for those in the Southern hemisphere, maybe you'd like to find out what a white Christmas is like. Whatever the case, it sounds like some Christmas adventures is in order!

If this year you want to hang up your stocking somewhere different, here are some inspirational ideas around the globe by World Expeditions.

Top 5 Christmas Destinations

1. Patagonia

Christmas is all about family, so why not take them with you on an adventure through Laos. Step back in time and explore the incredibly beautiful Buddhist town of Luang Prabang, here you'll witness the dawn procession of hundreds of monks collecting alms. From learning to cook the Laos way to discovering remote villages, this trip provides something for the whole family.
