- 29 Dec
Christmas is over, and many amateur travelers are still enjoying their holidays somewhere in the sun or maybe at a ski resorts, some of us probably haven’t had the chance to go on a trip yet. But just because you had some time off to pamper yourself during the holiday, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t go on a trip too, especially if you stayed at home for Christmas. Another good reason for traveling after the holiday are the deals – now that most people have traveled to their heart’s content, some travel companies will lower their prices to attract more customers. So here are the best after-Christmas holiday destinations for anyone who feels like traveling in January.
January is one of the best times of the year for visiting Cambodia. The gentle breezes work wonders in keeping the humidity levels down, and it doesn’t rain much. The beaches are a great destination in January, especially since the weather can be quite hot. January 7 is also the Victory over the Khmer Rouge Day, so you can expect large celebrations around that time.
If you don’t fancy sightseeing in the stifling heat of summer, you should take advantage of the mild January temperatures to visit Hong Kong. The pretty much constant temperature of 19 degrees Celsius is perfect for visiting the landmarks of Hong Kong, or exploring some of the hiking trails. It might be a bit cold to take a swim, but the beaches are quiet in this period and they’re great for walks. Chinese New Year is celebrated on February 3, so if you’re in Hong Kong at the time, you’ll be in for a treat.
Morocco has the perfect weather for a winter getaway, especially if you live in temperate areas the rest of the year. You can either embark on a cultural journey by visiting ancient archaeological sites and historical places, or just enjoy the colorful atmosphere of the capital, Marrakesh. Since winter is low season in Morocco, accommodation will be cheaper than usually, and you won’t have trouble finding rooms at the hotel of your choice.
Sam Juan, Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is a fun and exciting destination all year round, and San Juan is the right place for you if you like colonial towns. San Juan is not as sleepy and quiet as people think, and despite the fact that it isn’t very big, there is a lot of variety in this place. There are plenty of trendy boutiques, glamorous restaurants, charming historical buildings and monuments.
Las Vegas is one of those destinations where you don’t necessarily need much spending money in order to have fun. Unless you plan on trying your luck at a casino, you can do tons of stuff for free. The blinding lights of the city, the endless music and entertainment are not the recipe for a relaxing holiday, but it will definitely be a lot of fun.
