Buenos Aires, Argentina
With high temperatures and unique beaches, the middle of the summer season is the best time for a trip to Buenos Aires. If you can stand the humidity, you can explore the countless attractions without crowds or relax in the many parks of the city this season. Wander through the fascinating Recoleta Cemetery, home to Evita Peron's tomb and many other celebrities, have a picnic in the Bosques de Palermo Park, watch street dancers dance the tango at San Telmo Sunday Market and take a day trip to the Tigre area for a scenic cruise along the Paraná Delta. And do not forget that all this happens during the winter season.
With endless sunny days, bright nights and crowds of tourists flocking to the city during the high season, Bangkok is a lively place to visit this winter. The biggest event of January is the Chinese New Year on the 31st of the month. On this day, the city's Chinatown comes alive with a vast parade of dragons, colourful paper lanterns, live music and dancing, and many outdoor stalls with local delicacies.
Even if you are not in the city for the festive events, you can see Bangkok's sights, shop cheaply in the legendary night markets of the city or take a day trip to the nearby Khao Yai National Park? Head out of the city and down to Koh Lanta for snorkelling and beautiful beaches.
The temperatures are far from the extremely low of northern Europe, but there is a pleasant chill in Barcelona's air, which is the best to enjoy its countless attractions without the large crowds.
Stroll through the Gothic Quarter, enjoy city views from Gaudi's colourful Guell Park and sample local delicacies at La Boqueria Market.
And if you want to stroll through the city a little more, visit the Picasso Museum and the Joan Miro Museum, taste wines in the region of Catalonia wine or learn how to make tapas in a fast-paced cooking class.
Alternatively, you can take a day trip to Montserrat Monastery or cross the border to nearby Andorra, where you can go skiing, shop for tax-free products and add another stamp to your passport.
Specifically, in the winter resort El Pas de la Casa, which is located near the border with France and is a small "nest" of its locals and enthusiastic skiers who visit it. The two primary sources of income in this area are trade and winter sports, as can be seen. A ski resort is located at 2,000 meters and presents the best snow cover record in Andorra. A fantastic winter resort with modern facilities situated quite close to the airports of Barcelona and Toulouse. A place where Spanish culture blends with French culture. Definitely a great destination for your winter vacation.
