Qatar Airways Holidays - January
Written by Oryx
Plan ahead to January with our insider tips on where to go. Witness the wildebeest migration in Tanzania, enjoy the natural wonders in Phuket, and explore the mountains of Jamaica.
January in Jamaica features some of the lowest rainfall for the year, and average temperatures of around 22°C–26°C across the island. With a coastal plain that circles a mountainous interior, you can enjoy water sports, diving, and hiking to the summits of the Blue Mountain range.
Phuket enjoys its dry season during January, with little rainfall, average temperatures of 27°C, and sea temperatures of around 28°C. Stay in one of the luxury resorts near Surin Beach, discover nature at Sirinat National Park or Khao Phra Thaew reserve, and visit Laem Phromthep to watch the sunset.

Flight Time: 10 hrs, 5 mins
In Tanzania, January falls in the ‘short dry season’, between the short rains in November and December, and the long rains from March to May. Average temperatures hover around 27°C, and if it does rain, it’s usually just a short afternoon shower. Dar Es Salaam is a lively waterfront city that is also a gateway to the nearby beaches, and to safari holidays in one of the country’s national parks. It’s an ideal time to witness the wildebeest migration as herds arrive on the short-grass plains of the Serengeti, including the north of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Qatar Airways Holidays’ preferred hotel in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, is the Dar Es Salaam Serena Hotel.
