Where to go on holiday in January

August is held as the month of all months for travel: it's the school holidays, it's University holidays and its warm and sunny all over the world it seems! Short flight times and maximum relaxing or exploring time can be found all over Europe, great if you are travelling with young children or just don't fancy the long haul flight, with Cyprus, Turkey and Italy (to name but a few) all offer stunning coasts and lush vegetation, ripe for exploring. Further a field destinations like Borneo, with its abundance of wildlife, or richly cultured Cambodia, which is less busy during this time of year due to intermittent rain but making it the perfect place to trek due to the cooler temperatures and freshly nourished vegetation, are also great holiday choices. Make sure you call one of our specialists for tips and advice on where to go on holiday in August.

Maldives Holidays

While Europe battles with the icy grip of Winter, The Maldives enjoy sunshine and low humidity from December until April, making it the perfect January getaway. Sprinkled across the middle of the Indian Ocean, the islands offer you a glimpse into paradise: endless white beaches, turquoise lagoons, crystal clear waters and coral reefs bursting with weird and wonderful life forms. Whether its relaxation and a break from the rain you are looking for or an action packed adventure for you and your loved ones, the Maldives offers an authentic island experience, void of mass groups of party seekers and instead bursting with unique charm and a fresh take on life and how it should be!

Dominican Republic

Bigger than most of the countries in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic offers a diverse range of beaches, wildlife, lagoons and cultures to explore while the rain pours back home. From the rum factories and mountains on the North coast to what the locals claim are the ‘prettiest’ beaches in the country on the South, you can expect a medley of footprint free beaches, lively restaurants and bars as well as natural scenery straight from a glossy catalogue. A heady mix of a rather colourful past combined with the exuberant hospitality and tranquillity of the present day, the Dominican Republic is a safe bet for a vibrant yet idyllic escape.

Jamaica Holidays

Jamaica, home of the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, and the birthplace of Reggae and the world renowned Blue Mountain coffee, is also a great place to visit in January. This laid back island enjoys gentle warmth throughout the month, with temperatures staying in the mid to high twenties, meaning you can make the most of the white sandy beaches while staying cool with a famous Red-stripe beer. Floating lazily in the Caribbean, the island is well known for its party spirit and laid back mentality, with January seeing the return of the Rebel Salute festival, the biggest Reggae party of the year. Jamaica will engulf you in a world where river rafting and Jeep safaris are complemented by a meander around the various markets and historical buildings so whether its beach life you pine for or exotic carnival atmosphere, Jamaica is sure not to disappoint.

Luxury is the name of the game here, from the hotels, to the world class golf, dining and the spas, where days can be wiled away in ultimate relaxation. Whether you’re intrigued by the Middle Eastern heritage or can’t wait to get out into the desert on a Jeep, Abu Dhabi is sure to cater to your every whim.
