Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Get in touch with nature at Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Siltakyla (Valkmusa National Park & Huutjarvi Lake) and Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja). Pack the 22nd (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, and make a trip to Senate Square.

To find more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 3°C in December, and nighttime lows around -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
