As travel is reduced because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still some Christmas places we can virtually “go”. Christmas and the New Year is approaching and cities are wearing a festive look, even this unusual 2020.
Here are the most Christmassy places:
BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
Canada’s British Columbia is straight off a Christmas movie, with giant Christmas trees taking up the streets. The snowfall makes it a dreamier experience altogether.
There is no place like Paris, more so when it is Christmas. This is one place that will make you believe in all the Christmas magic that you ever believed in as a kid.
The whole of Madrid comes together to turn the city into a Christmas land, starting right in November and continuing till the start of January. This city knows celebrations very well, and you shouldn’t miss them!
Belgium’s Brussels is a magical place all through the year. It just revs up the celebrations when it’s Christmas; you can happily grab a hot chocolate and roam around the streets here for a perfect Christmas eve.
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC
One of the prettiest places in Europe, Prague’s Town Square is adorned with one of the most beautiful Christmas trees in the world, every year. Mulled wine and more treats await you in the market here.
While much of Austria turns stunning for Christmas, Hallstatt is a picture-postcard come alive. This is where you should be if you are a Christmas romantic.
Amsterdam, the world’s party capital takes it a notch higher around Christmas. An evening at Champs-Élysées on Christmas is a shopaholic’s dream comes true.
France’s Strasbourg matches the definition of a quintessential quaint town that comes all the more alive at Christmas. Straight out of a painting!
