6 of the best winter destinations

Who does not love to travel! We all want to travel and see the world. Winter is the best time to get away from the cold weather and to find a warmer place to visit. We may just travel to have a change of scenery and see something new. Whatever your reason to travel we have picked 6 of the best winter destinations for you to visit.

6] The Florida Keys

The Florida Keys are a string of tropical islands connected to mainland US by Highway 1 that stretch about 120 miles off the state’s southern tip of Florida. Key West is popular with partiers as well as those who love beautiful beaches and sunsets, art galleries and water sports. Key West hotels and resorts can be a bit too pricey so one can consider staying on one of the Keys farther north like Marathon or Islamorada, which tend to be a touch cheaper. The keys are a great winter destination for fishing, boating, snorkeling and scuba diving.

5] Spain

Airlines now offer astoundingly inexpensive airfares from the UK to Spain. Costa del Sol, Madrid and Barcelona all make fantastic winter destinations as the weather is warmer than most parts of Europe. Costa del Sol in the winter enjoys average temperatures of 13 degrees celcius. At popular resorts like Marbella, you can enjoy the sunshine on many beautiful beaches and shopping till you drop in the trendy boutiques. In Barcelona, take a stroll around the dramatic Gothic quarter and visit the magnificent cathedral, or walk down Las Ramblas, the city’s main strip to watch street performers, dine in numerous tapas eateries and check out La Boqueria, one of the best markets in Europe’s.

4] Venice Italy

As temperatures in Venice during the winter aren’t exactly warm you can enjoy this romantic city without the crowds. Some locals say that it’s actually even more beautiful with a covering of snow. During winter airfare and hotel rates are the lowest they’ll be all year. If you’re looking for more excitement, plan to arrive between January 23 and February 9, when the Carnevale di Venezia festival, one of the most famous carnivals in Europe, takes place. If you’d rather skip the crowds completely try heading there before or after it takes place. Going out during quieter periods means a better opportunity to experience the “authentic” Venice that most high season visitors miss. The thick mist that often settles atop the canals also makes for especially beautiful, atmospheric photos. You can enjoy the gondolas – they run year-round and when it’s chilly out the gondoliers will provide you with blankets.

3] Thailand

While the touristy beach areas in the southern region of Thailand like Krabi and Phuket are pricey, by heading north to Chiang Mai, you’ll not only enjoy a more authentic experience, but cheap accommodations as well. You can enjoy the area’s magnificent mountains, vibrant hill tribes and a more relaxed vibe. The weather is ideal, with warm sunny days and mild nights, while rustic but clean, comfortable and private rooms can be had for under $10 a night. This historic former capital is also home to many temples, and you can enjoy cheap multi-trips to nearby forests and other temples too.

2] Dubai

Dubai is located in the Middle East and is one of the wealthiest countries in the world today. It is an “arab” city of pure luxury with the manmade palm island, the tallest building  in the world (Burj Khalifa) and hotels of such extravagance that it seems like a fantasy. You guys with an abundance of money should definitely go there to splash that cash as it has great shopping, great food and great stores. It is a place to spoil your partner and is a great honeymoon destination.


1] Monaco

Monte Carlo is in Monaco which is a country south of France and the second smallest country in the world after the Vatican. Monte Carlo is a city full of riches and luxury, it’s a city where all the rich playboys go to gamble, play with their fast cars and enjoy their super yachts. It is a city full of beauty and full of beautiful women. Monte Carlo is a place for gentlemen who like to come and show the world what power they have and how much money they have. I personally would recommend this place to any human on this planet just for its sheer beauty and ease.

It is also host the the highly anticipated Monaco grand prix which takes place every May. Its the event of the year for all Monegasques and one that brings in some serious money. Every guy should go and see the Monaco Grand Prix once in a life time as its one of the most opulent, highly regarded, most looked forward to of the grand prix on the f1 race calendar. There are also wild after parties on the evening of the race where you can meet all kinds of A-List celebs and probably have the best time of your life.
