Is it even a holiday if it isn’t on the ‘gram? Social media, especially Instagram, has changed how travelers pick their travel destinations. Various studies show that travelers, especially the younger ones, consider Instagrammability as one of the most important factors of choosing a travel destination. With the holiday season coming up, who wouldn’t want to step up their Insta-game by sharing pictures of dreamy fairy-tale-like winter wonderlands, or a twinkling Christmas tree of various seasons right? Let’s now take a look at these 10 most instagrammable Christmas destinations.
1) Rockerfeller Centre, New York, USA
So iconic. The ice skating rink, the giant Christmas tree, the historical building that appears on so many Hollywood movies. Don’t take a selfie while skating in the rink though, unless if you want to spend your New Year’s with crutches! Haha.
2) Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong
This compact urban jungle is usually at its most beautiful state during Christmas. The skyscrapers be all lighted up against the sky, the iconic, breath-taking harbour, decked with twinkling Christmas lights, and there you go! The perfect background for a perfect selfie. Next!
3) The Carpathian Mountains, Ukraine
Ever dreamt of being on a Christmas postcard? This is it!
4) Prague, Czech Republic
So pretty, we can’t even. Absolutely #InstaChristmas
5) Hyde Park Christmas Fair, London, UK
Where you can skate your heart out to wonderful music on the Winter Wonderland ice rink. Marvel at the magnificent view of the city from the Giant Observation Wheel, or enjoy the thrill of riding the nine different rollercoasters. And if that’s not exciting enough for you, you can unleash the artist in you by making your own ice sculpture. #blessed
6) Pampanga, the Philippines
Taking a break from snow-Christmas? Then maybe choosing a tropical destination will rekindle the season’s excitement. Where? The Philippines! Do you know that Filipinos celebrate Christmas starting from September 1st? Well, now you do! Location tip: take some time to check out these unique Christmas lanterns in Pampanga. You’ll love it!
7) Cathedral of Duomo, Milan, Italy
What’s better than having a wide-angle shot taken in front of the Cathedral of Duomo? Having the picture taken for the ‘gram’ while eating a gelato, of course.
A less obvious Christmas destination, but definitely an equally awesome one. Like come on, look at all those beautifully decorated twinkling lights!
Do you believe in Santa? Ahem. Why don’t we go and pay him a visit? Meet Santa Clause and experience the magical Arctic Circle at the Santa Clause Village in Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland. Enjoy the amazing views of the Northern Lights from the Apukka Resort and experience various exciting winter activities, including hanging out with Santa’s reindeers and snowmen!
10) Christmas Market, Dresden, Germany
The festive atmosphere, the goodies, the crowd, the mouthwatering food! The perfect recipe for an unbelievable, unforgettable and a super instagrammable Christmas!
Whichever destination you choose, remember to take some time off the ‘gram’ to enjoy and experience the precious real-life moments.
