We will tell you where to go 😉
As some of us are not the biggest fans of cold seasons, there are plenty of places around the world where winter freeze could be escaped. We have put together a list of warm destinations that won’t break the bank, not only but also won’t put you through a visa process from hell.
Travel Myth: Hotels and flights are cheaper in countries that don’t observe Christmas
Flights are always subject to supply and demand, that’s why we recommend you to book them as early as possible to get your hands on the cheapest deals, as for hotels; owners are aware that it’s a worldwide holiday season, they price high, we believe that booking early or taking the risk of very last minute booking can be a life savior.

Bali – Indonesia
Tamblingan Lake in Bali – Indonesia by Pandu Adnyana
A tiny slice of paradise, no wonder why it recently has been on high-demand. The coolest thing about Bali is how diverse it is; visitors can just laze in the sun, chill by a scenic beach surrounded by palm trees, join a yoga retreat, catch a boat, explore its volcanic hillsides and rice terraces, cycle, hike, you name it!

- Flights starting from: EGP 4986
- Visa: Visa upon arrival (requiring a pre-travel approval from Mogama’)
The Isle Of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka by Surreal Name Given
A down-looked at destination offering an array of activities; jeep safaris, water-rafting, hanging around taintless beaches, rainforest hiking, delving into nature, marveling at archaeological wonders are just some of the options.
- Average temperatures: highly depends on which part of the island you are
- Flights starting from: EGP 3559

- Average temperatures: 24-31C
- Flights starting from: EGP 4188
