“Everything contains Yin and Yang. They are two opposite yet complementary energies. Although they are totally different in their individual qualities and nature, they are interdependent. Yin and Yang cannot exist without the other; they are never separate.” And, as we like to think, a little bit like the snow and sun offerings from Club Med! In short, both are better than just the one. And you really don’t have to choose; at Club Med you can do both. Whether you are a couple or a family; wanting to go far and exotic or close to home; we have a number of options for you to choose from.
To help you plan for the December and January holidays (which are close to seven weeks long!) these are some of our clients’ favourite sun and snow holiday options.
