Where is hot in January?

The hottest places in January tend to be long-haul destinations such as Cancun and Barbados.

But those keen to cut their carbon footprint - or flight time - might want to consider closer-to-home destinations.

European hotspots such as Tenerife and Lanzarote still offer warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine just a few hours' flight away.

The Met Office has revealed the top 10 holiday destinations which are the hottest in January:

  • Singapore - 30.5C
  • Cancun - 30.5C
  • Manaus - 30C
  • Barbados - 29.1C
  • Rio de Janeiro - 29C
  • Sydney - 27.4C
  • Cape Town - 27C
  • Cape Verde - 25.2C
  • Tenerife - 21.1C
  • Playa Blanca - 20.5C

We've rounded up some of the best places to book a holiday to in January, if you want some post-Christmas winter sun.
