Let's sum up

These were fifteen countries, where in January it is possible to tan, swim in the sea and relax completely in the summer. If the snowy and cold winter is already tired, buy tickets, book hotels and meet the new year in swimsuits and sailing!

Going to the warm corners of the planet, be sure to specify all the nuances of the trip, especially if you have chosen exotic countries, such as Thailand, Vietnam or Tanzania. Their amazing and unique flora and fauna are not only very beautiful, but also make in themselves the dangers, unusual Russian residents. Avoid insect bites, try exotic dishes with care, and when buying a tour, do not save on medical insurance. If you decide to relax in Russia and visit the capital to the New Year holidays, be sure to look at the most beautiful places of Moscow.

The choice of countries where you can go on vacation in January large, but mostly these are Asian directions and exotic countries. Prices bite, Coronavirus does not sleep, the requirements are changing every week, and the planes fly far from all in all. It is difficult to plan a vacation in advance, but some kind of outlines of possible directions for your January journey we will tell.


  1. Where can I plan a trip:
  2. Countries that can open to winter:
300 * 250.

Thailand is an excellent option for planning to fly around on the beach and not particularly spray at visiting excursions. The departure is better planned by January 7-10. These dates prices for tours fall at 20-25% compared with the New Year.

Dominican Republic, Cuba and Mexico are also ready for receiving tourists who can afford to allocate more than 150,000 rubles for rest.

The most reasonable alternative for those to whom Thai culture does not like - the Arab Emirates. In the middle of winter, very comfortable weather reigns here. Water in the bays does not have time to cool and holds at + 24 °, and the air does not heat up above 28 °. Ideal conditions for visiting excursions and bathing!

If the Arabic or Asian directions do not like - choose the Canary Islands. In winter, in Tenerife, you can relax at the rates of Summer Turkey. In Tenerife, you are waiting for the most interesting excursion program, solar and warm weather. If desired, you can even swim in the ocean (+ 20º).

Love heat? Then you in India, where in the territory of Goa +35 degrees in the shade is considered the norm. Just a couple of degrees cooler Bali and Sri Lanka.

A much more choice among countries where the air temperature ranges around 29-31 degrees.

Azima in the Turkish coast is the weather being disgusting even by our standards, but it does not scare tens of thousands of travelers. When else can you spend a week with everything included in 5 * hotel for 35-45 thousand for two?

When you put my body in order to get tired - order excursions to the ancient cities or drive into Istanbul. In Turkey, there are no problems in order to find the time to kill time. There would be time and money.

Another reason for the popularity of Turkey in January is the season of discounts and sales. The ride to the resorts is often combined with the purchase of fur coats, leather products or gold.

In addition to the cooler sea, the disadvantage will be wind, therefore the Sharm El Sheikh and Taba are protected by the mountains are more high demand.
