Let’s face it, winter is cold! So it gives you a good opportunity to explore other parts of the world! Here are a few of of my favorite places to visit during the winter.
My favorite winter vacation spot is Maui, Hawaii. It’s warm, the people are pleasant, and the ocean is beautiful! I usually spend my time eating and lying on the beach. Here are some more ideas of things do when you’re there. You could eat and enjoy a real Hawaiian Luau, learn to do the hula, take a helicopter tour, enjoy a romantic dinner cruise, go on a snorkeling or diving adventure, bike around the volcano, go horseback riding, do some whale watching, and you could always learn to surf.
Another winter destination I like is Phuket, Thailand. I suggest staying at a resort on the beach. Last time I was there I rented a bungalow on the beach surrounded by a lovely garden, I could see the ocean and the beach started just a few steps away. The best part is I booked it online and it cost only 1300 baht per night! Some ideas to keep you busy during your trip would be visiting Old Phuket Town, visiting Wat Chalong Temple, taking a motorbike or car up to the Big Buddha statue, watching live Muay Thai Boxing, going on a Phi Phi Island excursion, and you can enjoy the Splash Jungle Water Park which is a blast!
The final place to visit is Phoenix, Arizona. Now it might not be the warmest place but it’s still warm and easy to get to. If you’ve never seen the Grand Canyon you should put this destination at the top of your list! When you’re in Arizona you could go to a nice desert spa, take a tour by driving around the scenic areas, and visit some museums or Desert Botanical Garden.
