Tips for choosing a December destination

Pick five possible places you want to see

These could be in Nigeria, such as Calabar, Lagos, Anambra, Kano, and Jos. Or they could be foreign destinations, such as Dubai, Cape Verde, Casa del Papa, Singapore, London, Paris, Tokyo, and Madrid. Then decide when you want to go, how long you want to stay and what you want to budget for flights and accommodations.

Compare flights to every city

The internet makes this easy to do. Check the prices and the times that flights are available. If you’re on a tight budget, this is when crucial differences might begin to emerge.

Check out potential accommodations

Some cities are more expensive than others. Look into all the options, such as hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, and other possibilities. Could you save a substantial amount of money if you stayed just outside the city you want to visit??

Find out about surrounding cities or countries

You don’t want to stay in one place the whole time, but you also don’t want to spend a lot of time travelling. Research how to get from one place to another, such as a bus, train, ferry or rental car.

Stalk social media and the internet

Hashtags can help you find what others are saying about your destination choices on social media. Travel blogs such as travel.jumia.com/blog/ng are great sources, too. You can also just Google the places and find statistics, photographs and points of interest.

With the aforementioned knowledge, you can choose the destination best suited for you.
