That’s funny, I thought Bali would be a lot higher on the list – all my friends seem to jet off to Bali for Christmas and NYE the first chance they get. It seems that Singapore travellers are also increasingly looking to spend the festive season in a HOME, away from their home. According to latest findings by Airbnb, it looks like lots of Asian destinations were featured prominently on this year’s holiday travel wish list.

Sometimes when I travel, I skip the whole hotel thing altogether and book rooms with home rental sites like AirBnb – you can discover unique local families through their accommodation, rent rooms in local homes and experience local culture better. Booking a nice room in a beautiful home is also MUCH cheaper than sleeping in an even standard small fare hotel. My girlfriend Estee and I last booked rooms with AirBnb in Berlin.

What I would give, to have another ski x soul searching sonata atop of the Swiss alps.

Where are YOU spending Christmas this year? Where would you actually like to be?

I haven’t been to Korea since I was 16, maybe it’s time for a trip next year! Happy Holidays, everyone. 🙂
