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.
For shopping fun, head to Market Square Kauppatori or Kamppi Shopping Centre. Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Spas (in Tampere), Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, look for all kinds of wild species at Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip planner .

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 3°C, and evening lows to -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
