The Best Places to Visit in January || Thrillist Travel Guide


– I think your New
Year’s resolution should be getting the
(beep) out of Dodge for a well-deserved vacation. Hello internet, my
name is Wil Fulton, and this is “Thrillist
Travel Guide,” where we not only teach you
to be a better traveler, and in turn a
better human being, we tell you where
you should be going specifically whenever
you feel those itching little pangs of wanderlust. The year is rapidly
coming to a close which means two things: one, your grandma or at
least someone’s grandma is going to try to
make you eat fruitcake, and two, you should
totally be planning a January vacation. Look, your vacation days
should be restocked, everyone else is
probably focused on going to the gym for a week or two. – What are you doing? – I’m doing horizontal running. – But most importantly,
January is an excellent time to visit some of the world’s most intriguing vacation spots, which we’re about to lay out
for you right now, obviously. First stop, consider
Québec City, Canada. I know what you’re thinking, why would I willingly
choose to venture up north to freeze
my giblets off? And I get that. Braving the cold in
the middle of winter might not be for everyone, but if you have a solid jacket, or at least a usable
pair of long johns, Québec City is like a snow
globe with way more poutine. Québec City has a
distinctly European vibe, which is helped by the fact
that everyone speaks French, and is basically
like going to Europe while staying on this continent. The locals here don’t just
embrace the cold weather, they squeeze all of
the fun juice out. There are live music festivals,
outdoor showings of the legendary
hockey flick Slap Shot, and, well, a lot of drinking,
like a lot of drinking. The walled city of Québec
might just be the best place to experience
winter in North America. It’s a winter wonderland. Pretty much. If something tropical is
a little more your speed, January is also an excellent
time to visit Maui, Hawaii. I mean, there really is no
bad time to visit Hawaii, but the first month
of the year might actually be the most ideal. Flights to Hawaii are
finally getting reasonable, and January tends to
have a bit of a lull after the tourist-heavy
holiday season, so, you might have some of
those beaches all to yourself. And if you’re a golfer,
or you know, just a fan of drinking beer and
watching people golf, the PGA Century Tournament
of Champions descends upon the island the
first week of January. And that’s if you need
another excuse to visit, which you probably don’t. Now, if you really
wanna get away, like the entire way
around the planet, think about
Melbourne, Australia. You know, down under. Sorry, don’t hold my horrible
accent against Australia here. January marks the
first month of summer, and there are a ton
of outdoor activities, including more than a
few music festivals. It’s basically like you’re
experiencing a second summer with twice as many marsupials. Melbourne is generally
considered to be Australia’s second city, behind Sydney, even though it’s
certainly a mecca of food, culture, and general
Australian merriment. And like Hawaii, there’s
generally a lull of tourism after the holidays, so, you probably won’t
be fighting off crowds. But perhaps, most importantly,
the 26th of January happens to be
National Australia Day which is the official
national day of Australia. It’s a big party
celebrating Australia. I don’t think you need
me to connect the dots for you here, it’s
fun to experience. OK, while these are three
excellent vacation spots, there’s so much more
for you to enjoy in the first month of the year. So, check out Thrillist
Travel for more sterling winter destinations
all over the world. I’m Wil Fulton, that was
