    Hot in Jan????

    Hello!

    I've never been away in Jan before but one of the guys at work is off to Egypt and says it will be hot!

    I'm thinking about taking the missus as part of her Xmas present but wondered if any of you have been anywhere nice in Jan before??? I only want to go for a week and i'd like all inclusive if possible.

    I don't really fancy Egypt, heard too many bad things about getting ill

    Any thoughts???

    Thanks

    I do fancy Sydney but it'd have to be a 2 week trip otherwise it'd be a waste!

    Yeh I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed New York. Was there summer tho, would love to go back in the winter time. None of the false, pretentious Americans you get on the west coast / California etc.. Pretty easy to get to from the UK too I believe only like 6 hrs or something?

    Yeah 6-7 hour flight but then you can expect 2 hours to get through customs lol

    Oh and if you do go don't forget to fill in the green card (EVEN FOR CONNECTING FLIGHTS????) else you have to do a walk of shame down the row of customs officers with a bright red folder with your passport in woops!

    Egypt is very nice - as long as you don't drink the local tap water. Also the thing to be wary of out there is going from boiling hot outside to going straight into a cold air-conditioned room multiple times in quick succession < thats what tends to make you sick rather then the food! I've been out there about 8 times now and only had a problem once but my mum lives in cario hence going so many times.

    I'm flying out to Kuala Lumpa in Jan for 2 weeks for 350 return I'm going to end up in bali so it should be nice and hot then - and not amazingly expensive.

    South Africa is doable in a week. I've done 2 x 1 week trips, The Free State with Kwa Zulu next door.

    I went to Vietnam this January, it was so unusual going away to somewhere so hot from so cold...suffered with heatstroke a bit which may have been related but it was definately worth it. Probably a bit far for a week though

    I really fancy Vietnam after seeing it on Top Gear! Ha.

    But you're right, it's a bit far for 1 week. Would love to do it one day though

    I'd class that as a "2 weeker" as well. So far i'm feeling a week in NY as i've never been and it looks AWESOME or giving Egypt a try
