Already tired of Christmas shopping? Why not combine travel with your present-buying? Here are the top five Christmas markets in the world:
One of the oldest Christmas markets in Europe, there are presently 10 different locations with a total of 300 stalls. Shopaholics can spend a week buying decorations, gifts, drinking Alsatian wine and otherwise enjoying the end-of-year festivities. Visit Place Kleber and take in the Great Christmas Tree which is rumored to put Rockefeller Center’s tree to shame. The annual "guest" country village at this year’s event is Iceland. Pretty cool, huh?
