The City of Lights, Paris, emerges at the top spot as the dream Christmas destination for Filipinos, according to the online search data analysis conducted by the website.

Where do North Americans want to spend their Christmas?
While many Canadians and Americans are ready to deck the halls far from home, their holiday compasses point in diverse directions.
Among Americans, there is a penchant for European escapades, with Vienna being their top choice. Featured prominently on their list are Paris, Barcelona, and Quebec City. While those who prefer a touch of homey charm opt for American cities like Branson, Missouri, and Chicago, Illinois.
For Californians wanting a winter wonderland, the snowy streets of Leavenworth, Washington, become a festive magnet, while Arizonans are lured by the lights of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Surprisingly, states like Alabama, Alaska, and Hawaii are steering clear of transatlantic flights, opting instead for Leavenworth, Washington, and Helen, Georgia, where Bavarian-style Christmases captivate the holiday spirit.
On the flip side, Canadians’ top destination is London, another European city that has taken center stage on the world’s holiday map this year and earned its place as the leading Christmas destination around the world.
These dream destinations paint a picture of the diverse ways people across the globe celebrate the holiday season. Whether it’s the romantic ambiance of Paris, the classical elegance of Vienna, or the traditional charm of the US, one thing is clear—the world is united in its quest for the perfect Christmas getaway.
