Christmas Shopping in New York City - Relaxing on Long Island

This trip offers the perfect combination of experience and relaxation. While New York City is bustling with life, you can enjoy a relaxed idyll in a multifaceted landscape just outside the city on Long Island. In addition to numerous attractions, a flight to the metropolis of New York City also offers the opportunity to do some Christmas shopping in one of the many well-known shopping centres and shops. Long Island is not far from the metropolis, but offers its visitors a completely different flair. If you are lucky, you can even experience the empty beaches and great landscape covered in snow - a dream, especially at Christmas time.

Paradise beaches on the Maldives instead of dreary winter weather

Those who want to escape the cold weather should consider spending the holidays in the Maldives. The island state in the Indian Ocean appeals with its fair weather guarantee and continuous 30 degrees - even in winter. Instead of the usual pre-Christmas stress, visitors here can enjoy absolute tranquillity on the beach, good food or the private pool in their own villa. One of these exceptional hotels is the Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spawhich entices with exclusive offers, such as a barbecue on the beach as an alternative to the festive feast on Christmas Eve or a cocktail hour on the hotel's own private island.
