The world's best Christmas markets

We know it's a little early to break out the tinsel and mulled wine but if you want to visit a Christmas market in Europe or beyond this year, you'll need to get planning now. Forget the Oxford Street lights: to immerse yourself in a truly festive experience, you need to be admiring hand-crafted glass baubles over fresh pancakes and a glass of glögg. And while there's plenty on offer for traditionalists, the popularity of Christmas markets in countries such as Dubai (where you can pick up designer bargains) and Lantau Island (overlooking the skyline of Hong Kong) means the genre is constantly evolving to offer new attractions and unusual gifts. Come check out our pick of the world's finest Christmas markets, from sugar coated pastries in Prague to original glass steins in Chicago:
