Let’s be honest, no one enjoys spending the winter months in the UK and January in particular can be a pretty depressing time. After the joys of Christmas, the cold weather and going back to work can leave in the most positive person feeling low. So why not switch up your holiday time and rather than go away in the summer like the masses, head abroad in winter and enjoy sunshine instead of sorry this winter.
There are so many places you can head for a warm winter but here at Travel Wire we’ve selected our top three favourite destinations so you don’t have to waste time doing the research.
There are so many places in the US that have warm weather during our cold winter that it’s impossible to list them all here. The obvious choice if you have kids is to buy tickets to an Orlando theme park in Florida. But you also have Arizona, Texas and Hawaii to choose from if theme parks aren’t your thing. So why not try your hand at surfing in Oahu, go hiking in the Grand Canyon National Park or visit a real Texas rodeo instead. The choices are endless.
South East Asia
On the other side of the world you’ve got South East Asia with a multitude of different experiences to be had. If you want to relax by the beach then one of the islands in the South of Thailand is your best bet. We recommend Koh Phangan although be mindful to avoid the full moon period if partying is not your thing. Or visit the many beautiful temples in Northern Thailand, which Chiang Mai has an abundance of. If shopping is your idea of a treat, then you’ll want to visit Singapore, where the only cold you’ll experience is the chill of air conditioning. There’s also Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and so much more to choose from.
The Caribbean is an obvious choice for warm weather in winter but is often left of people’s list because it’s deemed too expensive, but you can find very affordable deals online for places such as Barbados and why not try the all-inclusive option in places such as Cancun or Playa del Carmen on the Caribbean Coast of Mexico? All inclusive options might look expensive at first glance but when you do the math, you do safe time and money going the all-inclusive route.
There really is no excuse to suffer the cold this winter, with so many accessible and affordable options, you really should think about booking that winter get away today.
