The holiday is now celebrated in many countries around the world. And here, in my opinion, are the top 10 places in which to celebrate it...

Our last travel column was on my Top 10 ski resorts in America. But America's hardly the only place where the weather is cold, the skiing is cool, the nightlife is hot, and the winter-wonderland scenery is breathtaking.

According to Cushman and Wakefield, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) will enjoy a significant increase of property investment activity in 2015.

Hong Kong, New York, Paris, London and Tokyo retained their positions as the world's most expensive high-street retail destinations in Q3 2014.

The largest single residential development project ever undertaken in the Alps is underway.

Asset management agencies have almost €264 billion of European non-core real estate exposure.

More alpine sales are taking place at lower price points as the resilience of the ultra-prime markets start to ripple down the market price ladder.

Luxury residential property prices across the globe rose by 6.2% on average in the year to June 2014.
