Below are the best locations for a trip from January 22nd to January 28th. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In late January 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. Hengchun, Taiwan
Hengchun has perfect weather from January 22nd to January 28th. The weather is also perfect in the weeks before and ideal in the weeks after. Tourism in the area is slow during this time. Choosing Hengchun this week is a great choice for anyone looking for nice weather and lower prices.

3. San Diego, CA, US
Due to the lower number of tourists, a trip to San Diego in late January tends to be much less expensive, and the weather couldn’t be better. This period of ideal weather comes after some similarly enjoyable 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. Honolulu, HI, US
As with every place on this list, temperatures in Honolulu 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 strongly recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is as good as late January.
