If you think about the month of December and you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you probably won’t think about summer. However, in the Southern Hemisphere of the planet, this month kicks off the summer season.
Many of us find ourselves looking to get away from the cold and dark, and the Southern Hemisphere is a great place to do so. Here are three destinations in this hemisphere that you should consider.
Sydney enjoys some of its best weather of the year in winter, and you’ll find plenty to do in this Australian destination. From the Opera House to strolling along Bondi Beach, Sydney is just about the best Southern Hemisphere destination that you’ll encounter.
Cape Town, South Africa
My top destination in South Africa is, without a doubt, Cape Town. Located in the shadow of Table Mountain, which features a cable car that takes you to the top, you will have a great time enjoying the best of this multicultural city in the Southern Hemisphere’s summer.
Easter Island, Chile
Looking to visit a destination a little more remote and off-the-beaten path? Easter Island is a great option for Southern Hemisphere summers. Here, you can appreciate the famous Moai carved heads as well as a huge variety of archeological sites related to the natives that once inhabited this Pacific island.
