1. Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Why you should go: Kayak ranked Toronto their no. 1 most affordable holiday destination this year. The city’s Christmas Market is ranked among the world’s best, and if it’s too cold, you can use the PATH—one of the world’s largest underground walkway systems—to navigate between 1,200 downtown retailers, hotels, subways, and sights, like the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Why it’s a steal: Flights to Toronto are about 33 percent lower than the median airfare for North American flights (between $251 and $271 in December and January), according to Kayak. And the average hotel stay, reports TripAdvisor, is $181—15 percent cheaper than in the fall.
Where to stay: The Bisha Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, steps from the famous CN Tower (which you can see in all its glory from the rooftop infinity pool area, shown here). There are tons of shops, restaurants, and more in the city’s Entertainment District. Rooms start at $198 per night.
