People flock to Prague from all over the world to see the magic of the Christmas markets. The markets, complete with live nativity scenes, traditional folk crafts, and beautifully decorated Christmas trees, create an unforgettable festive experience. Aside from the markets, there’s so much to see and do in Prague this time of year; you can see a Christmas concert, check out an exhibition, or simply marvel at the incredible architecture and historical monuments around every corner.
A little closer to home, Cheshire is a wonderful place to celebrate Christmas or see in the New Year. Located nearby is historic Buxton and Liverpool where you can visit The Beatles Story exhibition. Cheshire is known for its rural villages of half-timbered and red sandstone architecture.
If you’re interested in a relaxing, tranquil New Year break, Puglia is the place for you. A lesser-known corner of Italy, Puglia enjoys a mild, pleasant climate and is full of picturesque landscapes, historical churches, and delicious food. Whether you watch a festive dessert cooking demonstration in a traditional masseria (Pugliese farmhouse), or just take a stroll around the coastal town of Polignamo a Mare, you’ll find Puglia in New Year is certainly worth the trip.
A festive cruise along two of Europe's most majestic rivers is a great way to meet and connect with like-minded single travellers. The Rhine and Moselle river cruise offers incredible scenery like views of romantic castles, cosy villages, and steep vineyards - all from the comfort of your cabin! Stop off at Germany's financial hub, Frankfurt and enjoy wandering the Christmas Markets, and you must take a tour of one of Rhine's most famous wine towns.
A kaleidoscope of colour, this city is a must see, especially over the Christmas and New Year period. Discover the turbulent history of Delhi, India’s capital city, and behold the Taj Mahal in Agra which is undeniably one of the world’s most elegant and exquisite buildings. When in India, you must take a trip to Mumbai where you can visit the Gateway of India, a truly unforgettable experience.
