Experiencing snow is on everyone’s bucket list here in the tropics. After all, living in a region where it’s perpetually sunny all-year-long has never given us a chance to witness pure white snowflakes gently settling on the ground. Luckily, we don’t have to fly so far away to enjoy the winter wonderland we all aspire to see. Ahead, we list down winter destinations in Asia where you can experience a snowy vacay like no other.
Those looking for winter destinations in Asia mostly look towards Japan. And while the Land of the Rising Sun sure does have a ton snowy sites, Sapporo still remains, by far, one of the most popular in the country. Nestled in Japan’s northernmost prefecture, the city boasts of numerous ski resorts nearby. Experts and beginners looking to leisurely try winter sports are all welcome. But if outdoor activities are not your thing, take a relaxing dip in warm onsen resorts instead. If you don’t think you can visit the city by the end of the year, don’t worry! You can still enjoy the wintry season’s best with their annual Snow Festival that’s usually held in February.
