Create Your Best Holiday Memories in These 6 Exciting Winter Destinations
01 Nov 2018PLACESBY SweetEscape

Nothing really feels close to how the kids inside of us go crazily excited when the temperature begins to drop — snow will be falling anytime soon! Especially if you live in a country where there are only two seasons, it becomes a part of your bucket lists to visit a country where the roofs get covered with blankets of ice and everything else turns to white.

And because the holiday season has become one of the most convenient time to travel, how about taking that winter wonderland holiday dream to reality? Here are six exciting winter destinations that you may visit for the holidays:

1. Lucerne, Switzerland

Similar to what you see in postcards is Lucerne's impressive mountainous landscape. This place has the best view of Lake Lucerne and a really stunning scenery of the Alps, especially if you'll be taking the Glacier Express from Zermatt to St. Moritz. Don't forget to try the authentic Swiss cheese fondue before you leave!

2. Vienna, Austria

This destination would warm your heart even when it's cold outside. In Vienna, you could go for walks at its city center and go on a little shopping trip in stalls selling food, gluhwein and handicrafts — they are known to have the best Christmas markets in Europe. You may also go ice skating in the gardens of the Wilhelminenberg Palace or go on a weekend ski trip to Hohe-Wand-Wiese.

3. Reykjavik, Iceland

Everyone dreams of taking a sight of the Northern Lights in person, and you could do that in Reykjavik this holiday season. If you are down for adventures, you could also try downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing here. On the 23rd of December, take part in the Icelandic tradition of eating fermented skate and potatoes.

4. Helsinki, Finland

This holiday season, how about a visit to the country where Santa Claus is said to traditionally originate? Feel all Christmasy in Helsinki, also known as the Christmas city, where you could find snow-covered villages, just like in the movies. Local parades happen during the month of December, so don't forget to join the locals and tourists in spreading the holiday vibes.

5. Quebec, Canada

Experience a real winter wonderland in Quebec, where a hotel room made entirely of ice could be found. Take those Instagram-worthy photos at the Old Quebec Christmas village, unleash the inner kid in you at Valcartier Vacation Village, North America's largest winter playground or join their winter celebration as you watch the ice canoe race across the St. Lawrence River!

6. Tromso, Norway

Experience your first snowfall in Tromso, a city located above the Arctic Circle. Aside from the usual snow activities, you could also experience a close encounter with reindeers and dog sledding with the Alaskan huskies. You could also catch the Northern Lights here in Tromso, especially from September to March.

Get your phones ready because in these 6 locations, you'll never run out of beautiful sceneries to capture. Or better yet, take SweetEscape with you on your holiday adventure so we could save those precious moments for you to keep and remember forever.

SweetEscape is an online platform with a pool of local photographers in over 400 cities around the world. No matter where you go, a SweetEscape photographer would be ready to snap shots of you and your loved ones.

8 Things To Do This Holiday Season, The Filipino Way
17 Dec 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:

1. Go Christmas shopping in bazaars.

It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.

2. Complete the Misa de Gallo.

How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.

3. Visit music and lights shows and displays around the metro.

As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.

4. Spread the holiday cheer through Christmas carols

It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!

5. Organize a reunion party.

Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.

6. Pick a gift for your "monito" or "monita"

The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!

7. Go on a staycation with your family

For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.

8. Go for a quick holiday vacation.

To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.

In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.

SweetEscape now offers a one-hour photo shoot that'll capture your best holiday moments in 1-2 spots. Your edited photos will be ready in 3 business days, just in time for sharing with everyone else around the world.
