Yaay it is nine (9) days to Christmas. I am so excited. Christmas is definitely the best time of the year. I have never spent Christmas away from home but I am planning to this year and I have some amazing destinations I am looking at. While researching the destinations, I know I cannot be the only one thinking of where to spend Christmas. So I will be sharing 7 amazing destinations both within and outside Nigeria where you should spend Christmas.

Where you should spend Christmas

  1. Dubai

I am sure y’all are like what is with this girl and Dubai 😆. Dubai is definitely one place I look forward to spending Christmas in. 

There are a whole lot of activities one can do in group and with families in Dubai, from shopping at the Dubai mall, to visiting Burj Khalifa (tallest building in the world), to  desert safari, the Dubai fountain, club hopping, Dubai beaches etc. Activities to do are just to much and I believe you can’t easily get tired. Dubai is a place you will enjoy spending Christmas.

And you know what is awesome? Airlines like Arik Air have cheap flights to Dubai. 

  1. New York

Spending Christmas in the city that never sleeps will also be fun. Maybe it’s the books I have been reading and Landmark Christmas movies have been watching on YouTube, I have really been thinking of how cool it will be to visit New York City during Christmas. There are a whole lots of activities one can do like visit time square, Central Park, empire state building, Statue of Liberty, city hall etc.

  1. Calabar 

Why go abroad when you can have the best Christmas ever in your own country. Calabar is one place you should spend Christmas. One can stay at the Obudu cattle ranch during Christmas or Tinapa resort and go into town for the calabar festival. 

Where you should spend Christmas

  1. Bauchi

Bauchi is a place I have in mind because of the Yakari game reserve national park. Visiting the national park is as if you’re in Kenya. It is hard to believe a gem like that is in Nigeria. The park also has a resort with affordable accommodation. I definitely can not wait to visit this place. It is definitely a place I can spend Christmas and enjoy myself. 

  1. Take a Western tour

After all deliberations, this is what I have decided to do for Christmas. I am going to take a western tour of cities in the West like Oyo, Ekiti, Osun, etc. I partnered with three amazing people and we all are going to the major tourist centers in the town we pass through. Spending days on the road during Christmas is definitely an adventure I look forward to. You can follow the hashtag on Instagram #ontheroadNG

  1. Maldives

Maldives is picture of paradise. With luxury bungalows extending over crystal clear blue water. Have you been thinking of scuba diving? This is the city to give it a try. I heard Maldives is one of the premier scuba diving destinations on earth. Take bae and go to the honeymoon city with clear blue water to spend Christmas. You don’t want to visit this honeymoon city alone.

  1. Lagos 

There’s no party like a Lagos party! Christmas period is when Lagos city is hot! A lot of Nigerians who have been out of the country during the year comes in this period. Lots of concerts and events to attend. In fact there’s no Christmas like a Lagos Christmas. There are so many fun activities to do in Lagos during the festive period. Even without the festivities, Lagos is a city of fun with so many activities and adventures to embark on. One can never get tired of Lagos beaches, Lagos night clubs, tourist centers like Omu resort, Lekki conservative center, Lufasi Park, freedom park, fela shrine etc. There is always something for everyone to do in Lagos during Christmas with little money.
