Christmas is a magical season of the year and if you are dreaming of spending it in a picture-postcard perfect town that seems to have stepped out of the pages of a travel journal, these destinations offer the chance for one of the most unforgettable holidays of a lifetime.

The place seems to attract the young international crowd and gets very busy on a Thursday night.

The garden which was established in 1950, the 50-hectare expanse of greenery recently underwent a makeover, adding creative play centers, 110-kilometre canopy walkway and a high rope obstacle course to its repertoire of family-friendly activities. We recommend checking the Legon Botanical Gardens out this Christmas.
