Top 5 warm countries to visit in winter

Updated on November 11, 2010

     Long winter evenings sitting in an armchair under a downy plaid we often dream about warm sun, caressing sea and cool breeze. I personally often dream about warm countries; so these winter holidays I've decided to spend somewhere in an exotic country and I've already started to choose which country to visit.

     Here are five countries that I liked most of all:


     Egypt is an amazing country that combines dozens of historical places and exotic nature full of surprises. It's a place where you can "touch" antiquity and at the same time to luxuriate in a warm caressing sea. Once you've visit Egypt you can never forget this magic country. The country of grand pyramids, splendid temples of Luxor and oriental traditions will certainly win your heart.


     Maldives is a striking island in the Indian Ocean. Some people say that it's a paradise on earth and it seems to be the truth. Maldives is not a country that will surprise you with its historical places and exceptional architecture, this country will amaze you with its limpid blue water, unforgettable sunsets and abundant subaquatic world. Visiting Maldives you have to remember that it's forbidden to drink alcohol in public places, to swim or sunbathe topless and to tear away corals near the shore. If you observe these rules you'll certainly recollect your holidays with great pleasure. This is a kind of country that gets you to fall in love as soon as you see it.

     Dominican Republic

     It goes without saying that you will like this marvelous island with its snow-white sand, beautiful cays, lofty palms and historical relics made in the times of Great geographic discoveries. And you'll certainly appreciate local people; Dominicans are friendly and amicable people who like jokes and dances. Dominican Republic is not a large country, so you'll have an opportunity to see all its places of interest during a week or two, but if you don't manage to visit all the places you wanted you'll have a motive to return to this charming country again.

     United Arab Emirates

     United Arab Emirates implies charm of oriental fairy tale and European standards of service. On the one hand United Arab Emirates is a country of high skyscrapers and huge shopping centers, but on the other hand it's a country of endless beaches with snow-white sand (sand in each emirate has its own tinge), blooming gardens in the middle of deserts and bottomless limpid sea. United Arab Emirates is one of the most surprising and tempting countries of the world.


     Fabulously beautiful nature, clean beaches, many places of interest, service of high quality and well-wishing attitude of local people is only a small part of all the advantages that trip to Thailand will provide you with. Here you can not only enjoy marvelous nature and crystal pure sea, but also visit numerous ancient temples and palaces and see wares of local craftsmen. Thailand is undoubtedly a country that will never leave anybody indifferent.

Which of these countries do you want to visit?

      Breathtaking photos! Thanks for giving me a virtual vacation! I am surprised not to see China on the list. I guess China can be cold during the winter!

      You have taken some great photos. I have a soft spot for Thailand because it is next to Malaysia where I was born and my family used to holiday there in Pattaya and Phuket. What makes this place great is also its people ~ some of the most hospitable and friendly faces that I have ever met. They will go out of their way to help you, especially tourist although one should also be cautious about getting ripped-off. Thanks! Great hub!
