Below are the best locations for a trip from February 12th to February 18th. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In early to mid 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.

4. Christchurch, New Zealand
As with every place on this list, temperatures in Christchurch feel excellent, rain is infrequent, and there are no travel advisories at the moment. Tourists looking for hotels and flights are somewhat common during this time, so prices may be about average. The many hotels here can fill up, but probably won’t during this period. We could also recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is not quite as good as early to mid February.

5. Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Because Hong Kong can get busy, this is an excellent time to avoid crowds.With fewer travelers booking during this time compared to the busiest months, hotels and airlines may offer some incentives to stay during this period. This is a good time to visit, but the weeks beforehand are also very nice. If you’re planning to stay for more than a week, you’ll likely find enjoyable weather the whole time.
