Xmas in South East Asia
16th September, 2011
I'm travelling south east asia from November to February and wondering where the best place is for Xmas and New Year? I'm travelling on my own so I'd like to be somewhere that's reasonably busy, but other than that I'm happy to travel to wherever.
I know there is mention of this in other threads, but it would also be great to hear from other people spending Xmas in SE Asia.
Thanks for your advice

I too will be in SE Asia the same time as you except I'm arriving in two weeks, I am getting ridiculously excited! I have no idea where to go for Christmas and New Year either so hopefully some of the more experienced travellers can give some suggestions. I think I will probably go to one of the main cities though in whichever country I am in...hopefully there will be alot of other solo travellers away from home too. x

It all depends on your idea of a perfect Christmas and New Year's holiday. You can celebrate the holidays in Bangkok with a splash, or head up to Chiang Mai in the North of Thailand where the weather is perfect at this time of year and spend New Year's eve watching all of the amazing paper lanterns being sent up into the sky for good wishes. I have lived in SE Asia for 8 years and while I sometimes miss being at home during the holidays, I've never once been disappointed with celebrating the holidays here. Thais and Laotians LOVE holidays and they'll use any excuse to celebrate!!! Happy Christmas and New Years!!!!
