24 Nov 2022EXPLOREBY SweetEscape

The Year-end in 2022 is coming closer and it’s an exciting one! Especially for a fellow escapist who is now able to explore the world with all of its beauties. With SweetEscape, as a photography service, you can capture every moment anytime and anywhere, which means your photographer does not need to travel because we will find your photographer based on the destination you are heading to, so there is no need to worry about the accommodation fee! Since we're aware that fellow escapists live in different parts of the world, you're bound to live in different weather, seasons, and cultures during this time of year. Luckily, it doesn't always have to be wintertime during the months of December and January. In fact, it can also be the opposite of winter in continents such as the Australian country-continent. Depending on where you live, and which kind of weather you prefer and can enjoy certain types of weather and customs you have never felt before. So, if you're looking for a nice change from your usual day-to-day weather and activities, we've got a list of 5 places for you to consider for your upcoming holiday!

1. If You Seek an All-In-One Destination: Tokyo, Japan

If you often dream of a place where you can have all sorts of weather (with a little bit of commuting), foods, cultural festivals, skiing, and other fun outdoor activities, look no further because Tokyo opens its arms out for you. Tokyo in December is cold and dry - the weather in Japan varies across the northern to southern prefectures. There’s no chance that you will run out of places to see along with their varied temperatures. Feel like chilling in cold but dry weather? Try out walking around the Shibuya Crossing, a popular boardwalk and a must-see landmark of the city for various different activities and fun entertainment. However, if you’re in the mood for winter, make your way to Shiga Kogen, Japan's largest ski area and one of the best ski resorts near Tokyo. You should definitely try skiing because it provides one of the best snow experiences on the planet. Make sure you don’t leave your heart in Tokyo - you’ve been warned, you’ll fall in love with the city in an instant.

With that said, you can stroll around Brighton Bathing Boxes or downtown city without shivering!
