Most Fascinating Winter Getaways


Winter has come and the holidays are just around the corner. Many travelers wish to have perfect trips in the holidays, looking for out-of-ordinary Christmas feasts, Japanese onsen, or sample local foods. Here are the best choices.


Riga, the capital and largest city of Latvia, is particularly notable for its extensive Jugendstil architecture. When visiting the medieval Old Town at Riga, travelers can walk on winding streets and have a close look at uneven red roofs. Perfectly preserved, the town looks more alluring than ever after snow fall. Besides the Old Town, a compelling Soviet-era museum is another must-see place.


Leisure travel to Riga has increased significantly in recent years.



Anuradhapura, one of the ancient capitals of Sri Lanka, is well-known for its well-preserved ruins of ancient Lankan civilization. Buddhist temples, lovely beaches, and tea plantations are also other destinations in Anuradhapura.


Anuradhapura’s fascinating ancient ruins include sculptures, palaces, huge bell-shaped stupas built of small sun-dried bricks, and ancient drinking-water reservoirs.




If Stowe generates much tourism revenue in summer and fall, it is also a destination for those who love New England and enjoy skiing at picture-perfect resorts. Visitors can skate on ponds, watch the blue sky and holly wreaths on every door.

Frozen Lake Bled is situated in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia. The lake lies in a picturesque environment, surrounded by forests and mountains. 2,120 m long and 1,380 m wide, in winter, it looks like a set for a ballet. Visitors can sample robust local food and wine and relax with an excellent sauna.


The Lake Bled envelops travelers in staid comfort.


Japan is a great destination in winter. Travelers can go by bullet train and visit Tokyo and Hiroshima, especially feast their eyes on snowflake fall and relaxed by Japanese onsen.


Travelers will find it interesting to cross Canadian by train where they can catch up on reading and feast your eyes on spectacular scenery.
