There’s no city as beautiful as London during Christmas. Each December, the capital is host to a range of Christmas markets, festive fairs and yuletide festivals. Just walk around and you’ll hear carols echoing in the crisp cold air, pop-up winter igloos taking over rooftops and the river, and the glow of fairy lights juxtaposed against the powdery white snow.
Of course, there’s the world-famous annual Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park, and the larger-than-life Christmas tree that stands at the heart of Trafalgar Square, donated to the people of Britain by the city of Oslo each year.
London is indeed, the quintessential winter getaway to jet off to when you want to truly indulge in the festive mood. It comes as no surprise, then, that December sees some of the highest arrivals of Singaporean visitors.
