Over-stuffed yourself over the festive period? You're certainly not alone. This year, instead of pledging (and failing) to join a gym, escape those post-Christmas blues and welcome the new year in style with a January holiday.
Indonesia embodies the word 'enchanting' as well as any other country on earth. Thousands of islands scattered across the Indian and Pacific Oceans make up a dazzling portfolio of beautiful landscapes. Watch the sun rise over Mt Bromo and visit the smoking volcanoes of Java's immense plateaus, take in the weird and wonderful wildlife of Sumatra's orangutan-housing jungles, visit the immense ancient temples of Borobudur or spend time on paradise beaches, diving spectacular coral reefs.
Combine two of Russia's most iconic cities on a multi-centre holiday that grapples with Russia's fascinating journey through the history books. Gleaming beacons of modern-day Russia, Moscow and St Petersburg have been reshaped and redefined by a century of post-revolution growth, but development and technology still proudly sits side-by-side with ostentaceous displays of old money, power and soviet relics. Visit in January to explore the iconic Red Square and the Hermitage Museum beautifully carpeted in snow.
