Young adults searching for an enchanting holiday in December need to look no further.
Contiki Holidays has rolled out a brand new seven-day tour package to the French cities of Paris and Strasbourg, which promises an experience which "marries dream destinations with fun, friends, parties and perhaps some romance".
The trip, which runs from 15 to 21 December, is targeted exclusively at young travellers aged 18 to 35, and will cost from US$899 (S$1372) per person, exclusive of air passage.
To craft out the seven-day itinerary, Contiki Holidays has collaborated for the first time with the Tourism Board of France, Maison de la France.
Mr Frédéric Meyer, Director of Maison de la France South East Asia, said: "Maison de la France is pleased to partner with Contiki Holidays to promote this exciting travel offer. France is the ultimate rendezvous destination for young people as it offers endless fun, adventure and romance."
For the Paris segment of the tour, travellers can expect to shop along the chic Champs-Élysées, visit the enigmatic Cathédrale de Notre Dame, and stand in awe before the architectural phenomenon of the Tour Eiffel.
In Strasbourg, travellers will visit the Christkindlesmärik, one of the largest and most spectacular Christmas markets in Europe. Also known as the 'City of Roads', Strasbourg is a 'fairytale' city of cozy half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and tantalising bakeries - truly a place on the cutting edge of modernity that still retains a sense of nostalgia
The enchanting city of Strasbourg
The tour runs from on 15 to 21 December with both arrivals and departures in and from Paris. However, there is only a single departure and seats are limited. Travellers are advised to take advantage of any airline promotions out of their respective cities for that period.
For over 40 years, Contiki Holidays has specialised in creating vacations for those between the ages of 18 and 35. With over 100 itineraries to choose from, the company concocts a unique blend of "sightseeing, free time, culture, socialising and adventure" for travellers.
