The Ultimate Christmas Trip: The World’s Finest Christmas Decorations & Shopping

VeryFirstTo exclusively presents the Ultimate Christmas Trip, enabling a couple to experience the most spectacular decorations throughout the globe. You can visit these spectacular sites in 8 legendary Christmas destinations, travelling in business class and staying in the finest hotels.

The exceptional 17-night trip begins on December 1st and is organised by luxury travel specialists, Hurlingham Travel. The one-of-a-kind trip begins in London, taking in the incredible lights of the major shopping streets including Regent Street and Oxford Street, as well as the iconic Piccadilly Circus.

Then it's off to New York City to enjoy the wonder of the tree at the Rockefeller Center, as well as the window displays of Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales and Macy’s. Continue on the American leg of the tour in the “Happiest place on Earth”, Walt Disney World, Orlando, where you will visit the magical Christmas wonderland and all the fairytale Christmas joy that is offered by Mickey and his friends.

You will then travel to Medellin, Columbia’s second largest city, which is known for its Christmas Lights Fiesta, an annual holiday celebration that illuminates the night sky with exquisite scenes and giant 3D figures each year. This year is expected to be the biggest ever in celebration of 50 years of the Fiesta.

The next stop takes in Paris, the “City of Lights” where not only will you see the incredible illuminations and beautiful window displays, you can also shop the beautiful Marché de Noel, a Christmas market featuring artisans, food, and holiday-themed vendors, considered by many as one of Europe’s top markets.

You will then sample Celebrate Christmas in Singapore (CCIS) which infuses the world famous Orchard Road with music, performances, and a series of decorated floats all honouring the holiday's religious aspect.

Back to Europe and decadence in Monte Carlo where the French Riviera town of Monaco is lit up with spectacular lights including cascading, interwoven lights recreating the magic of Christmas. You will also see the trees that are specially erected from the Place du Casino to the Boulingrins Gardens and the Avenue de Monte-Carlo, decorated in shades of white, gold and silver.

The last stop on the tour is Vienna where you will enjoy possibly the grandest lights in the form of the chandeliers up to St Stephen’s Cathedral. The famed shopping streets of Graben and Kärntnerstrasse also host some of the city's most dazzling light displays.

In Rathausplatz (Vienna's City Hall Square), bask in the light of the town hall, which glows like a fairytale castle. Rathausplatz is also home to the city's largest Christmas market, an outdoor holiday mart with vendors selling handmade crafts and holiday treats like baked apples, mulled wine, and gingerbread. The market is the perfect place to pick up some unique gifts and festive goodies to bring back home in time for Christmas Day.
