5 warm destinations to escape the winter freeze

posted on 18th of december, 2014

If you're not a winter fan, check out these 5 hot destinations you can escape to:

1) Buenos Aires, Argentina

Average temperature in January: 25°C (77°F).
It's the most visited city in South America and it has the third best quality of life of Latin American cities. It's also a good place to learn tango!

2) Cape Town, South Africa

Average temperature in January: 28°C (82°F). The city is famous for its harbour and one of the most multicultural cities in the world.

3) Siberia

Just kidding.

3) Tenerife, Canary Islands

Average temperature in January: 15°C (59°F). Not exactly beach time, but a great place to visit. And, if you wait until February, you can attend the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the second most popular and internationally known carnival.

4) Maldives

Do we need to say more? Oh, yes: average temperature in January: 27°C (81°F). Probably the best snorkeling place in the world.

5) Singapore

Average temperature in January: 30°C (86°F). While the weather is just fine to hang around at the pool all day long, you might not have time to do so, because Singapore is better known as one of the world's major commercial hubs.

Whichever destination you choose, don't forget to pack your photo gear! All these places are extremely popular, so the photos you'll take there may actually pay for your trip :)

Excellent photos! Currently we have so much snow here in South-Germany. A warmer place would be very nice!

First most popular carnival is Rio (Brasil), second is Venice (Italy), so Tenerife is not the second, maybe the third.
And Maldives are far to be the best place for snorkeling (I would not even put it in the first 20 positions…)
About Siberia I agree, specially Oymyakon…

Certainly creative photographer should have very good sense of humour. This is about Siberia being among hot destinations. It made me laugh too much as temperature there in January would be between -20 °C – -45 °C ))) Thank you for this!

Some great destinations for us all to enjoy and beautiful photos too. But don't forget Australia. Gold Coast predicted to have a cool 30°C on Christmas Day!

About me

Never in my life had I thought I would become a photographer... It all started as a small business, in a small town, for small money. I bought my first (small) camera to shoot graduation portraits in high schools. But then, having a digital camera, I took it anywhere with me, and shot everything I saw. This is how the passion grew on me. Photography soon became my passion, my job, my life. The passion got bigger, the camera got bigger, and the money also (because I never forgot about the business factor). Finding my passion and making money from it led to a beaut... [Read more]
