Good weather in january holidays: Where’s hot in January? | Thomas Cook
Where To Go On Holiday In January
If you’re planning a winter holiday next year, January is a great time to visit the Caribbean – particularly if all you want to do is lie on the beach. The south offers warmer climes, with the islands of Antigua, St Lucia and Barbados routinely reaching the high 20s but without the high humidity of summer. It’s also a good time to enjoy Sri Lanka’s amazing beaches when it’s mostly warm and dry in the central, western and southern regions. And the rush of the city and the glamour of luxury desert adventures can be found on a trip to Dubai – an excellent place to banish the January blues at a time when heat is guaranteed.
When would you like to travel?
Filled with breathtaking scenery, each island has its own distinct character and we offer ten Caribbean islands to explore. St Lucia’s verdant volcanoes are beautiful at this time of year. Warm days filled with bright sunshine make January the perfect time to visit – without the worry of tropical storms and hurricanes.

Holidays to Dubai take you to one of the world’s most glamorous metropolises, and at just a seven-hour flight away you don’t have to travel to the other side of the world to get some guaranteed winter warmth. With temperatures around 20°C during the day, pleasantly comfortable, cool nights and just one day of rainfall per month, it’s the perfect time to go for warmth without the stifling heat of the summer.

Sri Lanka is a culture lover’s heaven; full of ancient ruins and colonial-age relics (if you have more time, a visit to the Cultural Triangle is a must), fantastic national parks teeming with free-roaming wildlife, and beaches and tea plantations that dazzle with colour. January is a good time to visit the beaches of Negombo, Bentota or Tangalle as the weather is generally warm and dry in the central, western and southern regions.

January Holiday | Where to Go in January
January Holiday | Where to Go in January | Scott Dunn
Bid farewell to the January blues by escaping to a far-flung land. For the sun worshippers among you, the beach resorts of the UAE and Maldives promise to deliver. India offers pleasant weather for a sight-seeing extravaganza, while Iceland is a magical winter wonderland waiting to wow you.
Below are our top picks for where to travel in January.
Warm days but not too hot
India offers a chaotic and colourful assault on the senses, where busy cities are abuzz with people and the hum of rickshaw horns fill the air. But delve beneath this frenetic exterior and you’ll find a charming and deeply spiritual country. You’ll be welcomed by friendly locals who will treat you to the finest hospitality and mouth-watering cuisine, while the wealth of forts, palaces and temples to explore is unmatched almost anywhere in the world. India in January boasts cooler and crisper weather; perfect for busy days spent exploring these captivating sights.
January almost guarantees dry weather
An alluring archipelago of over 1,000 ancient coral islets spread out like glittering gems across 500 miles in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is paradise found. With private islands, endless infinity pools, incredible dining options and villas that stand alone on stilts in the sea, there’s no doubt these relaxed, barefoot islands are the perfect antidote to the busy schedule of the festive season. We love these idyllic islands at any time of year, but January is among the best months to visit – the weather in the Maldives in January is consistently warm with very little rain.
Good chance of seeing the northern lights
A land of fire and ice, Iceland is mysterious, magnetic and unlike anywhere else on Earth. Hike across impressive icescapes, marvel at erupting geysers, and roam the wilderness on a husky-drawn sled. And the ultimate antidote to all this adventure? Renew body and mind as you soak in the mineral-rich waters of a thermal lagoon. Winter in Iceland brings snow in abundance, along with the real star of the show, the Northern Lights. Travel to Iceland in January for a chance to see this mystical natural phenomenon dancing overhead.
The ultimate winter sun destination
The United Arab Emirates is a country of contrasting elements, from the glamour and exuberance of its cities to the wide-open swathes of desert. January in the UAE is perfect – with an estimated 350 days of sunshine per year, winter sun doesn’t come much more guaranteed than this. Known for its luxury resorts, high-end dining and impressive skylines, this is the place to be in January to soak up some much-needed vitamin D in unquestionable style. If you think the UAE isn’t for you, give us a chance to re-frame your perspective.
The scenery is especially beautiful & the weather is cool
Oman is perfect for some winter sun in a laid-back atmosphere with some of the best food and service in the Middle East. There is so much to do in Oman from relaxing by a sparkling pool to paragliding over rugged mountains or snorkelling just off a golden beach. Temperatures fall to 25 degrees in January so you can enjoy all Oman has to offer without having to retreat to your room when the temperature gets too hot.
Warm & dry weather
It’s been a firm favourite with travellers for decades and with white sand beaches, spectacular national parks and an array of cultural delights, it’s hard to see why. From north to south, east to west, there’s always a new corner of Thailand to uncover. No destination is off-limits in January but this is a particularly good time to visit Phuket as the azure waters are especially calm and welcoming, and the diving is out of this world.
Cape Town & Kruger, South Africa
Excellent weather & great game viewing in Kruger
Cape Town is an excellent place to start the new year, this cosmopolitan city puts on an impressive fireworks display and it’s also an excellent excuse to try out some of South Africa’s sparkling wine. Once you’ve explored this vibrant city you can make your way up South Africa’s stunning coastline and along the Golden Coast. You could even go on a quick safari, January isn’t the warmest time to visit South Africa, but lions are less likely to be hidden away in shady spots during the day making sightings probable.
Baja California, Mexico
Best time to see whales & whale sharks
Baja California takes you off-the-beaten-path to explore the traditional culture, history and culinary scene of this desert peninsula, while in search of magnificent blue Whales and vast whale sharks. This is a great place to spy Blue Whales as most of the world’s population meet here between December and April to socialise, mate and give birth.
During Sri Lanka’s dry season
Sri lanka may be relatively small but there’s lots to do. Serene beaches, ancient Buddhist cities, emerald tea plantations and dense national parks are amongst her many highlights. Temperatures reach a balmy 30°C and there is very little rain so you can expect plenty of beach days when you’re not seeking out elephants or soaking up the stunning views at Sigiriya. Wildlife, history, culture, beach…this destination ticks all the boxes.
A romantic winter sun destination
Barbados is a great antidote for the winter blues; there’s plenty to enjoy, from stately homes and top-class restaurants to more than 1,000 rum bars and the wild waves of the east coast. In Barbados you need never stop having fun, whether it’s catching some horse racing at the Garrison Savannah track or dancing to “oldie goldies” at Oistins Friday Night Fish Fry. This island is a place where couples can have a ball and families will find it easy to slot in.
