As autumn gets into full swing, everyone is focused on working and maybe planning for their Christmas vacations.
If you’ve got a little time off that you can book, October is a perfect month to travel. The rainy season is coming to an end in Asia, the south of Europe is no longer broiling under the hot Mediterranean sun, and Africa is enjoying some excellent temperatures. There are few times of the year that present a better opportunity for travel, the question is though,
what are the best countries to visit in October?
If you’re looking for a little adventure, then I’ve got the prefect suggestion for you…Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Tanzania is East Africa at its finest. You have the stunning Indian ocean, lively Tanzanian hospitality, and 5 star beach-front resorts at 3 star prices. It’s a win-win for you and your family. You can go diving, explore the coastal islands, or shop until you drop for the best and most unique hand crafted gifts for family back home. If you leave the city, you can head inland to the game reserves and see elephants, zebras, hippos, giraffes and even lions in their natural habitats. This part of Africa is memorable to say the least, and HRS has a long list of excellent hotels that you can book to really round out the experience.
If Africa isn’t high on your list, then maybe a destination closer to home like Valetta, Malta is more to your liking. Malta in October is blessed with moderate temperatures around 25 C during the days and 20 C at night; perfect, enjoyable t-shirt weather. Since it is October, and not high season, you can book into a fantastic 5 star hotel like Le Méridien St Julian’s Hotel & Spa located right on St. Julian’s Bay for less than 100 Pounds per night, or you can stay in the Maritim Antonine Hotel & Spa for around 60 Pounds per night. It’s hard to beat deals like this.
Throughout the month of October, you will find some shockingly good deals on these and other destinations like the Canary Islands, Morocco, Hawaii, Tunisia and Dubai. October is one of the best months to travel, and the list of countries to visit is long.
