Recommendations for best long haul destination in Jan

Hi, my boyfriend and I are looking for a 2 week holiday in January. We would fly from London. We aren't really beach people and love to travel around places taking in as many sights as possible. Any suggestions? Recently we have been to Costa Rica and India. Thank you

Hi tortoiseshell;

Have you considered visiting Canada ?

Less expensive flights can be found on the British website "Canadian Affair".

Best Regards

Hello tortiseshell

Welcome to the Holiday Travel forum

Are you trying to escape the winter a bit, in search of warmer weather? My first thought is Cape Town and South Africa, perhaps a bit of safari in Kruger National Park and a day or two along the Garden Route of the Panorama Route (Blyde River Canyon). NZ and OZ are also in their summer periods, lots to do, good weather.

Thailand, Bali and Singapore are always nice to visit and warm year round. The classic area of SE Asia will be in their dry season if you want a bit of backpack or exotic location / action. Hong Kong and Macau are in our winter (cool) months, making it very pleasant to visit in January, plus Chinese New Year is at the end of January 2014 so you could potentially be around during a very festive period. This applies to Singapore as well and some areas in SE Asia.

Anyway, these are just some ideas. Let us know more about your travel interests and we can share other thoughts.
