Holidays Around the World
New York City
From exquisitely decorated storefronts to the amazing Rockettes Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall, New York City attracts thousands of tourists every December. Visit the Big Apple during the holidays! It’s a sight to behold. We recommend visiting Rockefeller Center to go ice skating, go shopping at new pop-up shops or just enjoy a cup of hot chocolate at Serendipity 3.
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
Rio de Janeiro
Hawaii and Mexico
See Asia’s biggest and most popular regatta! Held during the first week in December, the King’s Cup Regatta in Phuket, Thailand, is a 1-week event to celebrate the King of Thailand’s birthday. Don’t miss spending some time on the beaches in Phuket, including Patong Beach, Kamala Beach, Mai Khao Beach, Bangtao Beach and Surin Beach.
