Stunning winter wonderlands

Stunning winter wonderlands

You know what’s better than the sun taking reigns of the weather and pavement melting vacations? Fantasising about winters and the snow, even though there’s a good chance you will complain about it when it is actually falling. Sweating your armpits off can make you appreciate the brighter side of the weather normally associated with dark evenings and what is stereotyped in movies as an ominous warning. Here’s a list of stunning winter wonderlands to further assist with your unrealistic fantasies;

  • Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam winter

Amsterdam is the city of cosy winters. Not exactly known for being flashy, the capital of the Netherlands is on the stunning winter wonderlands for the crunchy snow covered lanes that flank sparkling canals and warmth wafting from its pubs. The crisp winter air often smells like freshly fallen snow, hot soups and of course stamppot.

  • Bangkok, Thailand

Apart from the fact that Bangkok has an actual Winter Wonderland, consisting of ice sculptures and ice art exhibition and basically a resort for Elsa, the city outside the actual theme park is also a sight to behold during the winters.

  • Transylvania, Romania

Transylvania

What better place to appreciate the cold weathers than the homeland of the legendary kind of the damned; Count Dracula. Luckily, the city of Transylvania has retained its eerie charms and the ancient looking castles and historic towns look like a classic fictional setting when dusted in snow.

  • Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo

Japan has a way with moulding with the seasons and adapting with time and winters are no different. The capital city Tokyo surely adheres to the idea of capitalising on all assets and that includes the winters and its gifts. Chilly walks accompanied by twinkling lights being reflected in the fallen snow, temples with snow masked rooftops and relaxing steamy baths in onsens are a part of the package in this big city.

  • Frankfurt, Germany

Frankfurt

Winters in Frankfurt, Germany are a colourful affair. Proudly boasting the origins of the Christmas market, much to the delight of every producer and manufacturer ever, the buildings still steeped in historic architecture come alight under the vibrantly coloured lights in the merry season make this one of the most stunning winter wonderlands.

  • NYC, USA

New york 2

New York City, widely known for being an eternally insomniac city, makes use of the white season in a way only big cities can. It becomes an attractive place because of its urban take on the snowy season, not despite of it. The Central Park becomes the hub of cheesy romantic walks and busy roads glisten under the ever burning street lights.

  • Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik

Even with the honour of having Game of Thrones shoot locations and geological gifts like the Lang of Geysers and Blue Ice, perhaps the biggest draw Reykjavik city is the affordability it provides especially in terms of the viewing of the Northern Lights. The winters may get a little extreme, but the sight of the Aurora, visible from late September to early April, make the harsh trip quite worth it.

  • Prague, The Czech Republic

Prague

The old timey buildings dominating much of Prague become a sight to see when covered in snow. Usually considered to be a summer destination, it becomes far less crowded in the winter days and the activities that accompany the weather leave little to be desired.
