A new year brings out bucket lists or resolutions from people to start the year in a positive vibe. 2016 is about to end and a great way to welcome the next year is by traveling.  According to Price of Travel research, cost of hotels and air tickets usually decrease towards the second week of January.

There are several selections for the best option according to the weather and prices. This article shows three of the many choices for cheapest places to visit in January 2017. 

Thailand

It is a worthy choice to go north of Thailand, specifically, in Chiang Mai. One need not spend so much on attractions because admission to most spots are very cheap. One can enjoy a meditation retreat at the Wat Umong Center and give a meek amount of donation. Tourists can also visit one temple to the other as there are plenty of these in Chiang Mai. Take pictures of the cherry blossoms at Doi Khun Chang Kien, Doi Inthanon and Doi Khun Mae Ya in Pai. Explore the Chiang Mai University Art Museum.

Chiang Mai follows a laid-back life and there are alternatives for budget food. According to Price of Travel website, budget food ranges from $0.85- $4.55. Your budget can go a long way in this beautiful province up north.

Philippines

Another desirable selection is Baguio City in Benguet, Philippines. Benguet is located at the northern part of the country. January is a quiet month as the Christmas and the New Year holidays are starting to wear off. The items that were not bought during the Christmas season will be sold at a discounted price.Thrift shops or locally known as "Ukay-ukay" are still offering low prices at this time.

Hotels could be expensive but there are many transient houses, dormitels, bed & breakfast, which offer cheap rates ranging from $10 - $30. There are many activities to do which will not hurt your budget such as going to Burnham Park, Baguio Cathedral, Mines View Park, Wright Park & The Mansion, Stobosa Art Mural. Souvenirs are affordable at the Baguio Public Market, Ukay-Ukay Shops and Night Market.

Vietnam

One place that travellers need to add to their list is the "Town in the Cloud" in Vietnam known as Sapa. Because of its geographical location, the activities are concentrated on enjoying the landscape view, getting acquainted with different tribes and trekking along the trails. These activities can be done in a group and tours can be arranged by local tour operators.  Homestays with locals could also be arranged as part of a package.
