10 Best Places To Visit In Italy | 2018



8 of the best places To visit in January 2019

Wondering where to go in January for a good dose of winter sun? Or perhaps you just want a winter adventure? These holidays offer the perfect post-Christmas pick-me-up...

There’s only one way to avoid the post-Christmas blues: a holiday, of course. If you want to get away at this dreary time of year, these are the best places to visit in January.

1. Namibia

Best January holiday for…Big Five spotting

The most sparsely-populated country in Africa is the ultimate place to get away from it all. Home to a record-breaking desert – it’s the oldest on Earth and has the world’s tallest sand dunes – Namibia is a beguiling place, and it’s surprisingly easy to plan your own break.

Beyond the dry, Martian landscapes is a bounty of wildlife. Etosha National Park is the place to go. Make for the first watering hole you can find, then sit back, relax and wait for the wildlife – think lions, elephants, gazelles and elegant oryx – to come to you.

Come evening, retire to one of the many luxury camps across the country – we love Dolomite Camp inside the national park – for the most spectacular sunset you’ve ever witnessed.

2. Tobago

Best January holiday for…Sunshine and rum

With its great weather, beautiful scenery and abundance of rum, Tobago is perfect for sunny January holidays. For dazzling white sand and water the colour of a Bombay Sapphire bottle, head to the beach at Pigeon Point – where you’ll also find watersports rentals and buzzing beach cafes.

Inland, you’ll find walking trails through the heart of the rainforest – where waterfalls roar and hummingbirds flutter. Welcome to the wild and wonderful Caribbean.

3. Costa Rica

Best January holiday for…Wild adventures

Where to holiday in January for unforgettable wildlife encounters? It’s dry season in Costa Rica – home of sunbathing iguanas, colourful toucans and sleepy sloths lazing in the treetops.

This little slice of Central America is covered in wildlife rich rainforest, which is best explored on two feet, two wheels, or (for the super adventurous) via its many ziplines and rope bridges. If you’re travelling with teens in tow, Costa Rica is a friendly and fascinating spot for January holidays.

4. Antarctica

Best January holiday for…A true winter wonderland

Not everyone wants winter sun, and the desolate but mesmerising landscapes of Antarctica are best-visited in January. This polar continent is seriously special, home to penguins, seals and whales in its waters and on its icebergs.

A cruise here is an unforgettable experience, as you’ll live aboard a specially-designed icebreaker ship and make Zodiac landings at penguin rookeries, scientific research stations and see all manner of seabirds and wildlife from the deck.

5. Norway

Best January holiday for…Seeing the northern lights

Watching the aurora borealis light up the night sky is an unforgettable experience – and January is the ideal time to see them on a cruise in Norway’s fjords.

Hop on one of the many cruise liners that sail the fjord between Trondheim and Tromso and you’ll be richly rewarded. By day, you’ll watch snow-clad mountains pass by and at night the elusive northern lights might just make an appearance. There’s nothing quite like watching the green hues dance across the sky as you sip a hot chocolate in the icy Norwegian air.

6. Los Angeles, USA

Best January holiday for…Sunny sightseeing

With more of Europe’s budget airlines expanding their network to the US (look to Norwegian Airlines and Wow Air for starters), it’s never been cheaper to cross the pond. But while New York and Washington freeze over in January, the temperatures in Los Angeles are similar to spring/summertime Britain.

Downtown LA (Alamy)

Now’s a great time to tick off Hollywood Boulevard, Muscle Beach, Rodeo Drive and more – or take a trip out to Disneyland or Universal Studios.

7. Abu Dhabi, The UAE

Best January holiday for…A cultural city break

Where to holiday in January for a blow-out city break? While Dubai hogs the limelight, neighbouring Abu Dhabi gets bigger and better every year – and in winter it enjoys warm and sunny weather.

Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Mosque (Alamy)

Abu Dhabi has an ever-growing crop of lavish hotels (our favourite is the St Regis on Saadiyat Island, for its gorgeous beach and spa), but this is much more than a fly-and-flop destination. Fill your days with artistic endeavours in the very new Louvre gallery, watch the polo at Ghantoot, and lose an afternoon in the souk-style stalls of Central Market.

8. Marrakech, Morocco

Best January holiday for…Shopping

While temperatures are moderate at this time of year (hovering around 15C), Marrakech enjoys some very long sunny days – perfect for exploring its markets and medinas in comfort. If you’ve ever visited in summer, you’ll know how sweaty and crowded Marrakech can get – but for January holidays, it’s a real treat.

Djemaa el-Fna square at dusk, Marrakech (Alamy)

What to do on a long weekend break? Feast your eyes on the botanical riches of Jardin Majorelle (the former home of Eves Saint Laurent), haggle for treasures in Jemaa el-Fnaa (there are some divine leather handbags to be found), and head to the hammam for a scrub-and-soak that’ll leave your skin feeling squeaky clean. Now that’s our kind of January detox.
