The Great British wintertime isn’t that great at all. Let’s face it – it’s dark when we leave for work, it’s dark when get home from work and it’s typically cold and wet.
So a little bit of a winter sunshine escape is often incredibly welcome for those of us who’d really can’t wait to see the back of winter.
And ok, so the school summer holidays have only just begun, but if you’re planning an off-season break (when the prices are lower and the kids are all at school), now’s the time to start looking.
Here are 3 destinations that should help ease the winter blues and offer up some much needed sunshine in the depths of winter:
Dubai has amazing weather all year round. And while some consider the summer months a little too hot to handle, the winter’s incredibly pleasant average of 25 degrees is simply wonderful. Whether you want to wile away a February afternoon by the pool or spend your January days on the beach, Dubai is an excellent option for those looking to escape the British winter time.
There’s little as satisfying as sipping cocktails on a hot and sunny white sand beach knowing that your colleagues, at the same time, are arguing over the photocopier on a cold wet day in the UK.
It’s absolutely bliss. And Barbados is the perfect spot for sunshine selfies on some of the most beautiful beaches that the world has to offer. With January temperatures often 27 – 29 degrees Celsius during the day, it’s perfect sunbathing weather and an idyllic escape from the shivery temperatures of home.
With average temperatures in the likes of Phuket reaching a pleasant 27 degrees Celsius in January, our winter months won’t feel wintery at all on holiday in Thailand. With so many resorts and cities to see within Thailand too, you can easily combine a beach break with some amazing culinary experiences and sightseeing you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
Get Away in Winter
Winter sun escapes are an amazing way to break up the cold months at home. And if you time it while the children are at school, you can often bag a better bargain than you might expect.
