Not sure where to go on your winter honeymoon? You have an abundance of options! The reason December honeymoons are so popular is that, for many people, it’s a convenient time to take a break from work and close the year on a good note. Christmas markets, ski slopes, and some of the most well-liked far-flung destinations may all be enjoyed in December without running the risk of monsoon season or becoming too hot. Here are our recommendations for the top honeymoon destinations in December.
Colorado is the ideal location for an end-of-the-year ski holiday because many of its most renowned ski resorts are open by late November. Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, and Steamboat Springs are all stunning this time of year. Of course, skiing is the most popular activity, but you could also go sledding and snow tubing. Of course, you could always combine your trip with a stopover in New York for shopping, Vegas for the nightlife, or Florida for some sunshine while you’re still in the United States.
- South East Asia
While Malaysia will still be in the middle of the rainy season in December, these honeymoon hotspots—each with its own unique magnificent culture and landscape—include Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. In South East Asia, your honeymoon money will not only go further, but there is also something for every type of couple, including incredible cuisine, breathtaking beaches, mountain or jungle treks, temples, intriguing history, and vibrant towns.
- New Zealand
Even though New Zealand is a remote location for a two-week vacation, the North and South Islands are great options for a honeymoon if you want to cross something off your bucket list. Unreal landscapes, abundant outdoor activities, wine tasting, breathtaking beaches, amazing animals, and beautiful road excursions. Despite being warm and sunny, December’s low temperatures make it a perfect time to travel the nation.
- The Indian Ocean
The Maldives, Mauritius, and Seychelles are islands and archipelagos in the Indian Ocean renowned for their turquoise waters, lush flora, and opulent resorts, making them another well-liked destination for the wealthy and famous seeking winter sun.
- New York
Want to feel like you’re in a Christmas movie while getting your shopping fix? Then you should travel to New York! Go shopping at FAO Schwarz, ice skating at Rockefeller Plaza, and see the Rockettes at Radio Music Hall to emulate Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone 2, or Elf. Please remember to bring empty luggage, and be on the lookout for Santa Claus!
