Many people think of “summer” when the topic is holidays, but in fact winter holidays can be quite fun, too. So far, you might have only chosen summer months to go on holiday; how about doing something different this year by organizing the perfect winter holiday? A winter holiday may not sound so appealing but rest assured going on holiday in winter has lots of advantages! We have compiled for you a list of the fun aspects of winter holidays!
1. Winter holidays are the perfect time to make discoveries!
During the summer holidays, most of us stick to the hotels or the seaside, and spend most of our time on the beach. And I’m sure you have also found yourself, more often than not, lamenting not having found the opportunity to do a bit more exploring to see what is around you. The fun side of winter holidays is perhaps the chance they offer to rediscover the cities we have visited before. Antalya for instance! In addition to an immaculate sea and nature, there are also castles, ancient cities, museums and more to discover in this beautiful city! That’s why winter holidays mean exploring new places and beauties no matter where you are.
2. Winter holidays offer unique views!
Considering most people stick to the sun-sea-sand trio for summer holidays, most beauties surrounding us are lost on us. To compensate that, a winter holiday is an opportunity not to miss. Because in winter nature shows us its true face and there is nothing else around to look at! Winter holidays offer you unique views, and all you only to do is plan ahead and think about those wonderful pictures you will take!
3. Winter holidays mean flakes of snow!
The first thing that comes to mind when one says winter holiday must be snow flakes! But unfortunately, we find ourselves yearning for the mere sight of snow in crowded cities like Istanbul. Luckily, there are many locations in Turkey that can help you enjoy snow to the fullest. Not to mention winter sports like skiing and snowboarding! You can also consider opting for a ski resort where you can experience exhilarating moments of joy under large flakes of snow for that perfect winter holiday.
4. Winter holidays are full of peace away from prying eyes!
You might think summer vacations are a great idea. But unfortunately millions of other people think the same way. Therefore, wherever you go in summer, your search for peace and tranquility is bound to result in failure. Quite unlike winter holidays! Options abound for a peaceful holiday away from prying eyes where no one can find you! Long story short, it is winter and not summer that is the best time of the year for listening to birds singing and waves crashing on the shore!
5. Recharge your batteries with a winter holiday!
You have worked hard all year round and done lots of traveling. Now is the time to take a break and catch your breath! Unlike summer holidays, winter holidays make us both physically and spiritually tranquil. You won’t have the sun hanging over you; will wake up in the mornings peacefully and fully regenerated. You can take a hot shower and enjoy the day!
6. The most enjoyable scene of the winter holidays is the fireplace with lovely sounds of the crackling wood.
Just imagine! In your room overlooking a magnificent view, you are snugly positioned before the fireplace listening to the sound of burning wood... That in itself is a perfect representation of the joys offered by winter holidays. Because only a winter holiday can give this sensation we have been missing the entire summer!
7. Winter holidays offer thrifty options unlike other seasons!
One of the most beautiful aspects of winter holidays is the budget-friendly options. As soon as the summer is over, airline companies begin to run special promotional campaigns. And that makes a winter holiday all the more alluring! It is no longer a pipe dream to stay in the most elegant hotels! All you need to do is book a room from that perfect hotel which you have been eyeing for a good deal but had to cancel due to its expensive prices!
8. Winter holidays mean having your fill of hot drinks and delicacies you have been longing for!
It is winter and you can have your fill of hot soups and warm cups of tea which you have missed so much in summer! The taste of the barbecue on the snow or the taste of the salep while watching the landscape during a winter holiday is unique and priceless. You can breathe in the cold and fresh air while at the same time warming the cockles of your heart with these unique flavors!
