Travel

Christmas was officially removed from the calendar in 1969 in Cuba under Fidel Castro. Luckily it's being slowly re-introduced so this year you’ll be able to celebrate the season from a Caribbean island. With its stunning white sandy beaches, lush jungle covered mountains and vibrant culture, it’s the perfect escape during the British winter. 

Highlight - From the preserved colonial city of Trinidad you can take a boat trip for some snorkelling over the coral reef and a chance to swim off Caribbean island beaches.

Happy/Merry Christmas - Selamat Hari Natal

Nepal

Chitwan Christmas 2009

Take Christmas to new heights this year: walk through remote hill villages against the backdrop of 8000m summits where icy peaks pierce the blue skies. Come back down to earth as you drive down to the lowlands and into Chitwan National Park spending two nights enjoying game drives, floating down the river in a dugout canoe and why not a spot of birdwatching. Round out the trip in Kathmandu where you can find better bargains than those seen on Boxing Day, a little haggling is essential.

Highlight - Take to the water and raft the Seti River. The beauty of the Seti extends beyond its warm, sparkling waters so pitch the tent by the river on the white sandy beach and dream the night away.
