Some people prefer to enjoy a white Christmas, but some people just can't stand the cold, and would opt to go somewhere warm and sunny. You will be relieved to know that there are warm-weather places that you can go to for the holidays.

Condé Nast Traveller lists Thailand as a favorite. The country boasts of fantasy white-sand beaches.  Then, there's Mexico.  Whether you go to Cancún, or Cozumel or Riviera Maya, December temperature is an average high of 84°F/29°C. The weather in late December is predictably perfect with barely a chance of a quick thunderstorm, much less anything worse.

If you want to go to Europe instead, you can go to St Martin and St Maarten, where it's like visiting two countries in one on this sun-soaked, half-French and half-Dutch island.  All of its 37 beaches have dramatic sunsets. 

Jamaica's highest temperature during the holidays is 86°F/30°C, according to Price of Travel, so there is plenty of sun here. Jamaican resorts are known for all-inclusive resorts and appealing package deals. Even during the peak holiday months, it's possible to lock in an appealing deal if you book early enough, which is an extremely good news for the budget traveller.

Bali in Indonesia is always a good choice for the beach bum.  Although there may be a few downpours every week in December, but there are has a lot of cheap hotels, which makes Bali a popular destination to many tourists.

The same goes with Boracay in the Philippines.  Average high in temperature is 82°F/28°C, and there may be some drizzle, but holiday tourists don't seem to mind.  This gorgeous strip of sand is lined with hotels, as well as a sand pathway along the beach, making it possible to spend days at a time in bare feet.

Penang Island, Malaysia is a popular destination among Asian tourists.  There is great value to the place, not to mention, it's actually pretty warm here, with an average high temperature of 88°F/31°C.  If you are a food junkie, then this is the place to be, since Penang is known as the culinary capital of Malaysia, with an abundance of cheap and cheerful food courts in addition to some notable fine dining.
