Plan ahead to December with our insider tips on where to go. Embrace the colder weather and enjoy the winter cheer in London or New York, and enjoy the dry season in sunny Laos.



December is one of the most exciting times of year to visit London. The weather is chilly but London’s shopping streets are decorated with sparkling lights and exciting window displays, while several seasonal markets offer handcrafted goods and hearty food. At Hyde Park Winter Wonderland you can browse traditional wooden chalets for a range of food, drinks, and gifts. There are also various gentle rides for kids, including an observation wheel, as well as a skating rink. Several other open-air ice rinks pop up across the capital in winter; the most impressive can be found at Somerset House and the Natural History Museum.

Midway through dry season in Laos, December brings sunny weather and temperatures averaging 19–22°C throughout the country. This is also the peak season for river travel along the Mekong River. Don’t miss the chance to visit the waterfalls of the Bolaven Plateau, or relax on the Four Thousand Islands.


New York

December is one of the coldest months of the year for New York, but what it lacks in warmth, it makes up for in atmosphere. It’s prime shopping season, with department stores and boutiques showcasing creative window displays of holiday cheer. Wander the beautifully decorated streets and glide across the skating rink at the Rockefeller Center.
