2018 is just around the corner. There’s no better way to kick-start the new year than by traveling!
For those who can take the time (or plan ahead), January is a fantastic month for a big trip. Crowds become thinner, airfare is economical, and several places around the globe are still offer the most beautiful, sunny weather like Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Bali!
For the quieter tourists, who love to lounge and soak in the destination, there’s Guadalajara and Adelaide, where time is ideal for spending time idly exploring.
Of course, the chill of winter makes for a perfect January holiday too, and nothing comes close to Hokkaido, Japan when it comes to a new year travelling plan!
Here are our top picks of January 2018, to help you get the ball rolling for 2018 with a bang!
1) Miami, Florida
Miami is a seaside fantasy. With its Clean, fine sand beaches, warm blue waters, and a hedonistic beach culture nothing is more relaxing than a day at the Miami beach.
Also experience Florida’s Tropical swamps which are abundant with wilderness. Alligators, Osprey and eagles, dolphins and tarpon, coral-reef forests, and oceans of saw grass. Florida offers a fantastic outdoors experience for January!
2) Bali, Indonesia
In the Island of Gods, thankfully, the holiday season wraps up in Bali by January. The brilliant part is that this one island is many destinations by itself: the madness of Kuta, the sybaritic pleasures of Seminyak, wild beaches in the south or the many spiritual experiences of Bali’s dramatic volcanoes of the central mountains and numerous hillside temples.
3) Hokkaido, Japan
Come January, and Winter is a different beast entirely in Japan. Mountains of light, powdery snow, render Hokkaido a paradise for skiers and snowboarders.
As Japan’s ultimate snow country, Hokkaido is at Japan’s northernmost tip and also home to the indigenous Ainu. Enjoy vast primeval forests, snow-kissed volcanic peaks and a wintry beauty that’s cold, yet amazing.
