AT THEIR BEST IN DECEMBER
Most of the world’s travel destinations are in the
northern hemisphere. December brings
winter weather to most of that hemisphere.
However, the dry Northeast Monsoon prevails over much of eastern Asia, and the northern sub-tropics are also enjoying the
drier of their two-seasons.
The trouble is that many of these places—while nice—are
even nicer in some other month. In the
southern hemisphere, summer prevails.
Since most of the southern hemisphere’s land mass is in the tropics and
subtropics, this means that they are cloudy, unpleasantly hot, and
rainy—typical tropical and subtropical summer weather.
Fear not, after a diligent search of more than
fifteen-hundred destinations, I managed to come up with twenty that are at
their best in December.
