Where to go on holiday in December

December is the perfect month to explore many of South East Asia’s less frequently visited countries, whether you head to Vietnam for its beaches, bays and waterways,

Cambodia for its splendid temples or the fascinating nation of Burma for its numerous pagodas, stupas and colonial relics.

If you have ever imagined yourself basking in the summer sun and enjoying a beach barbecue on Christmas Day then you could do no better than a festive escape to Sydney.
