    The trouble you will find is that to go somewhere hot in Jan you will have to travel outside of Europe, so most of the flights will be pretty long. So you may have to make a bit of a compromise... temperature vs travelling distance!

    New York is awesome as others had mentioned, but really expensive. By the sounds of it you want a nice beach and all inclusive 500-600 deal!

    My bro has been to sharm el sheikh 5 times in 2 years going to the Hilton all inclusive each time (650 all inc) and recommends it! Wants me to go with him in April so I think I am off!

    I hear skegness is nice in January, can't guarantee the weather will be too good mind.

    On a more serious note, have you thought about the opposite of a 'hot holiday' and thought about skiing or boarding? Plenty of places in Europe for that.......

    I love skiing, i've been a few times but the missus doesn't fancy it at all. I keep trying to convince her.

    I might take her to the dry slopes in round the corner or the slopes in Castleford first.

    Only problem (in my opinion) places like NY, Dubai for a week, is the plane fare you have to pay!
    460 pp to dubai
    420 pp to NY

    Don't know what sort of budget Millgate has for this! But 800+ for him and his lass just for flights... I wouldn't do that for 1 week... deffo a 2 weeker job!

    Skegness will be full of drunken bandsmen at somepoint in January as its the national mineworkers brass bands championships at the skeggy butlins, but it is great fun and alot of fantastic entertainment (not just brass bands)

    I dont really have a set amount i want to spend. I dont want to spend thousands on a weeks holiday (especially when i'm saving for a wedding and honeymoon) but i want a good holiday. I need to find a balance

    Ha! I would absolutely love to! I've never been to Vegas but i'm hoping to go either with work next year or with family the year after. My issue is, we've already booked the venue for the party (oops, i meant wedding) and put deposits down etc but i would love to get married by Elvis. It'd be such a good story to tell the kids!

    I went to the USA for just under a month earlier this year, los angeles, san francisco, yosemite, las vegas, phoenix and (flew) new york. Vegas was one of the highlights!! It is crazy!!

    Personally, anything with a flight in excess of 4 hours has to be a two week holiday as I need a few days to recover.

    Still an 10-11 hour flight though and it is getting more and more expensive.
