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.
We’ve got hot destinations in southern Africa and winter wonderlands for prolonging that festive spirit, so read on for the best January travel inspiration.
1. New Orleans, USA
Best January holiday for: A sunny city break
Want to stay warm, or at least mild, in January? Head to New Orleans, where the buzz of jazz and heat of Creole cooking will keep you toasty – and the highs of 18ºC, of course. This city is a real thriller, with the pretty balconies hovering above the French Quarter, and the wild nights out on Bourbon Street.
The best way to experience New Orleans is on this Newmarket Holidays cruise, taking in the singing city, plus Memphis, Nashville – another music hub – and then onto the Caribbean to explore Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Mexico. Start the year as you mean to go on: with plenty of soul and serious fun.
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.
