With the promise of Spring still seemingly far away, many are seeking to escape January’s cold weather and enjoy some sun in warmer climates.
From the diverse provincial city of Malaga to one of the most ancient capitals of Hanoi.
We have put together 10 of the most popular destinations to fly by private jet during the winter months to catch some winter sun.
An eclectic place that blends tradition with progression and modernity, it has everything you could wish for in a winter escape. The landscape is as diverse as the city itself and features expanses of white shores and beaches to cutting edge and almost futuristic architecture to dramatic desert plains and the culturally vibrant old towns. This contrast of tradition and modernity is also apparent in the traditional Arabic hospitality.
A real blend of African, Arabic and European cultures, Morocco is a culturally vibrant country with plenty on offer. From the bustling souks of Marrakesh to the undulating Atlas mountain range and the expansive Sahara Desert, the diversity of landscapes is stunning. With a growing selection of boutique hotels and retreats, you are sure to find your winter hideaway here.
A diverse provincial city that has a bit of everything to offer. An abundance of history, culturally rich with access to chic boutiques, waterfront dining and an abundance of beaches. The so-called ‘mile of art’ is now comparable to Madrid with new museums opening and access to Picasso and Thyssen museums, as well as the contemporary Centre Pompidou.
Phoenix is regarded as the ‘Valley of Sun’ due to its all year sunshine, which makes this a great destination not just for a winter sun escape but all year round. Scottsdale is the most desirable urban community in Arizona with an abundance of luxurious hotels, restaurants, shops and art galleries. If you are looking to relax, you can head to one of the many outstanding desert resorts and spas.
Hawaii offers visitors the idyllic beauty of its land, an ethnic mix of people and a history rich in culture. Nothing matches the charm and pure diversity of the Hawaiian Islands - from lava flows to tropical flora, rainforests and incredible waterfalls. Maui is the second most popular island, after Oahu. Plan a visit to Maui’s Haleakala National Park and see its famous 10,000 feet high volcano that dominates the landscape.
The Mexican paradise of Puerto Vallarta offers visitors a dozen sandy sun-kissed beaches, plenty of colourful festivals and celebrations, tropical jungles to explore and many a mountainside to traverse. Don’t forget to add trips to the many beautiful churches, local fish markets and snorkelling sites for a taste of local life.
As one of the most ancient capitals of the world and home to centuries-old architecture, this capital is rich with culture and influences from Southeast Asia, France and China. The chaotic Old Quarter sits at the heart of this city, where you will be swept off your feet by scooters whizzing by and lose hours wandering the narrow streets, ordered somewhat by trade.
Cambodia has been edging its way back into the spotlight over the last decade. Luxury brands have staked their claim and this picturesque country is in the midst of a tourism boom – but with a respectful, sustainable flair. If you have the flexibility to travel around Cambodia, it has something different for everyone.
Nestled under the looming presence of Table Mountain, next to Atlantic Ocean, this unique city offers a combination of spectacular natural beauty; stunning sandy beaches, wildlife, historic significance and cosmopolitan glitz and glamour. This destination has a cool urban edge to it with access to art galleries, hip bars, world-rated restaurants and home to Africa’s innovative artists.
