January is such a great time to travel because airlines offer their lowest prices of the year to lure folks to take a trip. In addition, hotels offer some of their most attractive off-season prices this month making January the time to travel for budget conscious travelers. Here are several ideas to kick start 2017 right.

The Ice Kingdom in Harbin, China

The Ice Kingdom is a vast 750,000-square-meter space with 6 million cubic feet of ice. The Harbin Ice Festival is a colossal village of snow, ice, and neon lights that will make backyard snowman look absolutely pitiful. It is China's biggest winter festival expected to entice more than 1 million international visitors to the Manchurian city of Harbin. Its opening is on January 5 and will close on February 25, reported DailyMail.

Skiing near Santa Fe, New Mexico

Visit Santa Fe this January where the sunshine and snowfall rule. The place is scattered with the Pueblo-style architecture of the New Mexico capital. Winter deals the chance to get out of town on a shuttle to Ski Santa Fe, go further afield to Taos and Angel Fire, or perform cross-country skills on the Aspen Vista Trail.

Wine and dine in Key West, Florida

Key West this January offers the most natural food and wine festival in the country. The Key West Food and Wine Festival held on January 25 up to 29 are full of delectable branches, seminars, and seafood-inspired winemaker feasts. In addition, you can also discover the island's peculiar personality on a Duval Crawl at the Key West's main drag. You can also enjoy taking a dip in the ocean at Smathers Beach.

Trip the world's longest train tunnel to Lake Lucerne, Switzerland

Switzerland finally opened the world's longest train tunnel this December. This tunnel shortens the travel time between Zurich and Milan by almost an hour. It took the Swiss twenty-four years to finish this project. The $12 billion Gotthard Base Tunnel slashes a 35-mile path through the Alps close the southern edge of Lake Lucerne and welcomes 50 passenger trains daily. You can relish the medieval attractions of the city of Lucerne and then race off to one of 24 nearby snow sports resorts accessible by train, mountain railway, or boat, says, MensJournal.
