Below are the best locations for a trip from February 5th to February 11th. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In early February each of these places are the perfect balance between temperate weather and smaller crowds, which also translates into better deals for tourists.
Because we’ve located areas and times where there is a greater chance for hotels/flights to be under capacity and weather is likely to be temperate and dry, the best time to book these 10 trips is usually within 1-4 weeks before travel.
1. Christchurch, New Zealand

3. Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Due to the average number of tourists, a trip to Hong Kong in early February tends to be neither the least nor the most expensive, but the weather couldn’t be better. This period of ideal weather comes after a long stretch of similarly-wonderful weather. If booking a longer trip, you’ll want to know that the weather will be almost as enjoyable for the next 30 days. Note that it can get busy here in other seasons.

4. South Padre Island, TX, US
As with every place on this list, temperatures in South Padre Island feel excellent, rain is infrequent, and there are no travel advisories at the moment. Tourists looking for hotels and flights are uncommon during this time, so prices may be lower. Because it’s a little less common of a destination, massive crowds aren’t likely. We could also strongly recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is as good as early February.
