Not fond of wrapping up in snug winter warmers as the cold snap hits?
Why not ditch the woolly socks and bobble hats, dig out your cozzie and seek sunnier climes instead?
Here are our top five destinations and places to stay.
1. Goa, India.
Indian life here is far from the throbbing heart of Mumbai, and it offers an ideal fusion of liveliness, tranquility and truly delicious grub.
Don’t miss Mackie’s Saturday Night Bazaar in northern Goa for a night of shopping and dancing, while the pretty as a picture Palolem Beach is a vast stretch of sand where you can soak up the rays.
Temperatures in November average at 29 degrees.
2. Bali, Indonesia.
If you fancy surfer-style waves and golden stretches of sand, head straight for Kuta Beach where you’ll find honed bods and boards galore.
Those who are fond of nature should make a beeline for the Monkey Forest in Ubud while Seminyak is an irresistible fusion of beach and bars.
Temperatures in November average 27 degrees.
Things don’t cool down much in the super hot tourist resort as the seasons shift.
Soak up the vibrant surroundings and equally lively cuisine after you’ve spent a day sunbathing and plunging into the deep blue sea, courtesy of a banana boat.
4. Kenya, Africa
This is a prime, pre-Christmas favourite for those craving a sunny, adventure hot-spot.
The country is coming into a scorcher of a season with balmy weather meaning the thermometer reaches the highest levels for the past six months.
Average temperatures in November are 30 degrees.
Stay at: Luxury lodges in Samburu or Laikipia by the The Safari Collection – one of the leading experts in East African tailor-made safaris
Fancy a barbie on a beach?
Then book a flight to Aus and enjoy a sun-soaked winter this year while your pals freeze their socks off back in Blighty.
You’ve just got to get your head around the concept of a hot Christmas and munching BBQ burgers while opening your Christmas pressies, first.
Temperatures in November hover around the 26 degree mark.
