Six winter sun destinations to book today

Dubai

With direct flights from major UK airports, going to Dubai has never been easier. Whether you are looking for a quick weekend break or a week-long adventure, getting there is simple. With pleasant temperatures ranging between 28 – 32 celsius throughout the day, Dubai has been voted one of the best places for a winter break. Due to its pleasant climate, there are a lot of outdoor activities that you can enjoy, which would otherwise be quite difficult in the heat of the summer months.

Thailand

If you are looking to visit Thailand between November and February, you couldn’t choose a better time, when there is a pleasant climate with little humidity: Thailand in the cool season is the perfect place to eat some hand-pulled noodles, whilst getting yourself the perfect tan. Take a wander across the Islands, stroll along the beautiful shoreline and prepare yourself for the country’s night markets. This is a land of thriving cities, tranquil moments, and friendly people, surrounded by undiscovered landscapes.

Zanzibar

East Africa’s archipelago promises winter sun along with adventure, striking scenery and mouth-watering food, all at an affordable price. Strategically located off the east coast of Africa, all 50 islands offer splendid views and beautiful beaches. Be sure to visit Stone Town. A UNESCO heritage site, this is the old town located in Unguja and is home to narrow lanes filled with shops, mosques, food and beaches.

Marrakech

A city replete with never-ending charm, Marrakech is only a short hop away from the UK and Europe, making it perfect for a weekend getaway. If you are looking for a complete change of environment and year-round sunshine, Marrakech is the place to be. Steeped in ancient history, Marrakech does a perfect job in preserving some of the oldest surviving historical sites in the world. Winter’s pleasant weather makes it possible to walk around and visit these sites without breaking into a sweat.

Cairo

Organised chaos, beautiful mosques, striking pyramids, world class museums, dusty lanes and colourful souks. This is Cairo! One of the main concerns for travellers is when to go. If you want to avoid the dry, intense heat, look at visiting between November and February. With affordable accommodation and fewer crowds, visiting in the winter allows you to see more of the city in a pleasant climate.

Cape Town

With a pleasant Mediterranean climate throughout the winter, Cape Town allows you to get out and do more. You’ll be able to see the lush greenery and awe-inspiring views of the Table Mountain without finding yourself at battle with the intolerable summer heat. Voted as number one Best City in the World in the Telegraph Travel Awards, South Africa’s Mother City becomes a lot more affordable for visitors in the winter. What’s more, the weather allows visitors to climb the Table Mountain and get a beautiful view overlooking the city.
