December is a month full of festivities and most people prefer to travel during that season. However, vacationing in January might be a better option for you to travel to different destinations.
During Christmas period, travel prices are insanely high due to so many bookings and in January when there is less traffic it’s quite affordable. Several tourist destinations between January and March tend to give out some discounts as a way of attracting customers.
With this era of social media, people who visit beautiful travel destinations during the festive season post them on different social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Some of them even go ahead and share their experiences and it’s from these that you discover new destinations and choose which one will do for you depending on your budget. This is more like free research.
If you are one that prefers traveling to places when they are less crowded, this is the right time to escape tourism masses. Imagine visiting one of the beaches on Lake Victoria on Christmas day? The crowds can really be over whelming.
So if you want to travel some where and have enough space to yourself, try January. For us who love taking pictures, we would not want to compete for the best photographic views and spots with so many people.
I believe there is no better time to travel but good things happen when you stray from the norm.
