One of those months when it is a joy to get away. And for those without the restrictions of school holidays, there are some exotic and beautiful destinations to choose from. Below are just three ideas of where to go in January (one from each of our regions), however they are not the only options:

In Asia most of India, The Maldives, much of Thailand, Sri Lanka and Laos/Cambodia are all great to visit. In Central+South America, the far South of Argentina/Chile is at its best as well as Central America and Mexico. And in Africa+Indian Ocean don’t forget East Africa at that time of year.

A selection of ideas for you to consider
