Oryx presents its insider’s tips for places to visit in January. Witness a stunning kite festival in Ahmedabad, take advantage of the low humidity in Hong Kong, or escape the usual buzzing crowds in Orlando


Look to the skies in Ahmedabad

The International Kite Festival is held every year in Gujarat, near Ahmedabad, India, on January 14, when the skies above the city come alive with kites. At night, skilled flyers will send aloft their tukkals with strings of brightly lit lanterns. January offers a pleasant climate for visitors, and other places to visit in and around Ahmedabad include Gandhi Ashram at Sabarmati – a small museum that includes Gandhian literature, paintings, and letters; Nalsarovar Bird Sanctuary, one of the largest wetland bird sanctuaries in India; and the Calico Museum of Textiles, with an enormous collection of fabrics from all over the country.


Go harbourside in Hong Kong

The humidity and chance of rain are low in January, so visit Victoria Harbour and head to The Peak, the highest point on Hong Kong Island, for panoramic views. At the end of the month you could experience some of the Chinese New Year celebrations.


Seek fun and thrills in Orlando

The buzzing crowds dispersing just after the New Year and the warm weather make it a great time to visit Orlando, USA – arguably the theme-park capital of the world. Theme parks range from Walt Disney World Resort to Universal Orlando Resort, LEGOLAND Florida, and many more.
