Where to go for the new year at sea
New Year is always a miracle and change. We strive to meet him as much as possible and more fun in the hope that the whole next year will be the same joyful. One of the most original ways to spend the New Year’s Eve – on the beach, running out of the snowy Russia in the summer.
Winter – perfect time to visit the country of smiles.
The rainy season has already ended, and the spring 40-degree heat has not yet come.
Water in the sea warms up to + 28 ° C and even higher, so it will be possible to celebrate the new year right in the sea.
Beach recreation go On the Andaman coast: Phuket, Phi Phi, Krabi. If you prefer cities with their clubs, shopping and stormy nightlife – then I advise Bangkok or Pattaya.
Thais are so loved by holidays that they have in the calendar of whole 3 new years – European, Chinese and Thai.
Our New Year’s Eve on December 31, Thais celebrate the same way, like all over the world – launch salutes, arrange a feast, decorate home garlands and having fun until the morning. At this time, you can go to any bar or staying at the hotel – most of them offer their New Year program.

Vietnam is not as popular as nearby Thailand. There is not so developed infrastructure and service, but its nature and the sea are no less beautiful, and the rest itself goes cheaper.
In the north of the country in the winter is relatively cool for Southeast Asia, and the sea can be a storm. Therefore, I recommend you to choose resorts in the south, for example, Fukuok Island. In Muin or Phanthet at this time, it is also warm, but there may be strong waves that will suit more soles than simple bathings.
Vietnamese New Year is celebrated at the end of January, so in December there is relatively quiet.
But without celebration there is something to do – diving, excursions by city and temple complexes, tasting of local exotic dishes.

It happens that the decision to go on a journey spontaneously comes to mind a few days before the holidays. And time to make a visa is already simply no.

In total, the country has 3 seas: Mediterranean, dead and red. Behind the winter beach holiday need to go to the Red Sea – in Eilat.

Where to fly to the sea with children
The most important thing for holidays with children is a stable climate, familiar food (not as in Thailand, where you rarely find something without tons of spices) and safety.
From the above countries, Sri Lanka and Turkey are suitable for these criteria (although the sea in winter in Turkey is still cool).
I also advise Canary Islands (Spain) for which I myself go every winter closer to the new year. Weather there all year round almost the same. In winter, air and water temperature is stable just above + 20 ° C.
You can safely swim on Tenerife and south Lanzarote – the sea is certainly not so roast, as in Asia, but normal. Children enjoy local water parks, Warns (especially the "Monkey Park", in which you can play with lemuras) and excursions in the island.
