New York.

The Best December Vacation Destination

This December, pack your bags and head to the Big Apple for the vacation of a lifetime.

Where to stay
The London NYC is an all-suite, luxury hotel with a smart, modern ambience, well-appointed rooms and excellent service. Major attractions like Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Broadway, museums and restaurants are within walking distance. The higher floors offer views of Central Park.

For budget travellers, Chelsea Lodge on West 20th Street offers clean, comfortable, basic accommodation. The rooms are equipped with showers and toilets located down the hall. A convenient location with easy access to restaurants, groceries and transport.

Where to eat
L’Ábsinthe Brasserie situated on the Upper East Side, is all Parisian chic and delectable nouvelle cuisine. It’s pricey; naturellement, but an experience to cherish.

Rock Center Café, in the Rockefeller Center offers stylish, informal dining. Get a table near the window facing the ice-skating rink, for the feel of winter.

The Sea Grill at Rockefeller Center routinely draws rave reviews for its brilliant ambience. Relish crab cakes or seafood chowder and enjoy the view of the ice-skating rink.

What to do and see
Rockefeller Center, built in 1939, is an iconic NYC landmark, a complex of nineteen commercial buildings in Midtown Manhattan that include famous names like the GE Building and Radio City Music Hall. Stroll through beautiful gardens, sculptures and murals, marvelling at this quintessential New York attraction.

Transport yourself into a crystalline winter wonderland at New York City Ballet’s production of the famous children’s classic, The Nutcracker. Pure magic!

At New York Botanical Garden’ s Holiday Train Show, the child in you, as well as your own kids, will be enchanted by the delightful model trains that zip around replicas of NYC landmarks.

Experiencing Christmas in New York

Through the Christmas season, New York hosts events many of which have now become part of its history:

Radio City Christmas Spectacular:  The highlight of this lavish, 90-minute revue – The Rockettes, the all-woman troupe famed for their eye-high kicks and precision dance moves.

Christmas Window Walking Tour:
Bundle up for a fun, 2-mile tour of the fabulous holiday season window displays in New York’s best known department stores.

Dyker Lights: An eye-popping, extravagant display of Christmas lighting in the Brooklyn neighbourhood.


Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree: This gloriously lit tree is another must-see on the list of NYC Christmas traditions.

New Year’s
Come New Year’s Eve, a million spectators gather at Times Square to watch the glittering, crystal Times Square Ball descend from a pole to reach the ground precisely at midnight. Be there!

As vacations go, this one sure beats lounging under a beach umbrella, doesn’t it?
