Destinations: Mexico & Thailand
Weather: 8 hours sunshine per day; 28-30°C average
Christmas is over, the New Year’s resolutions are already broken and the UK weather is about as cold and miserable as it gets – so what better time to head to the beach? First on your dream destination list should be Mexico, which is right in the middle of dry season in January, giving you an average temperature of 28°C. Thailand is also hot and dry – as well as being stunningly beautiful – providing the ideal antidote to the January blues.
