If you and your family are tired of spending the holidays in your hometown, then it’s about time you packed those bags and went on a trip to any of these unusual travel destinations that will surely make this year’s holidays unforgettable and even more exciting.

Phuket, Thailand

If you can afford to miss out on snow this year, travel to the sunny coasts of Thailand. While everyone else is keeping warm in front of the fireplace, sipping hot choco and roasting mallows, you’re skinny-dipping in any of Thailand’s glorious beaches, soaking up some healthy sun, and ultimately experiencing life. It’s indeed a wonderful way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life that you’re used to. This holiday season, don’t get worked up in the kitchen. Instead, indulge in sumptuous seasonal fruits and feast of Thailand’s native delicacies.

African Safari

While reindeers and polar bears fill the heads of little ones back home, you’re seeing gorgeous wild animals live. Exotic safaris have so much more to offer than just animals, mind you. You will experience a vacation-of-a-lifetime with the most perfect mountains, streams, grasslands, lakes and rivers as your backdrop. While you may not encounter the astounding annual wildebeest caravan, which happens sometime during the summer, you can still witness how wild African animals really are in real life.

Tysfjord, Norway

While everybody else feel like running away from water this winter season, you’re actually going snorkeling and wildlife watching in Europe! The Christmas season is the perfect time to swim with amazing orcas, or killer whales in Norway, because they arrive during the fourth quarter of the year, and stay until January.
