For many people, September marks the end of the summer and signifies the beginning of autumn. It is high time to take one last trip or two before it begins to get a little too chilly! It is imperative to take advantage of the good weather while you still can. Below are some excellent destinations to visit during the month:
The Maldives is not ideal to visit during the months of July and August since it is considered the monsoon season. By September, however, the skies begin to clear. There might still be occasional rainfall, though the weather will generally be warm and balmy. This is a great deal when you consider that this is still low-season and the prices are lower than usual! There will also be fewer honeymooners in sight. Win-win!
Croatia might not enjoy as many visitors as the rest of its Mediterranean neighbors, but it is definitely worthy of attention. It is a great place for anyone looking for some late summer fun in the sun. The Adriatic is a beautiful destination to explore and you will have plenty to do as you take in the spectacular beaches, breathtaking ports, and Venetian buildings. A cruise will be a great way to see what this European nation has to offer.
3. Crete, Greece
The weather in this little Grecian island will be sunny and pleasant, though it is going to be less crowded than in August. This is the perfect time to stay in Crete if you wish to enjoy the balmy weather and the warm waters. The accommodations will also be generally cheaper than the previous months. This month is also when the Festival of St. Stavros happens so be sure to join in on the outdoors folk party! Find out more about Greece in our guide here.
September is a great time to visit, thanks to the great weather and the overall less competitive prices. The mild temperatures are perfect for exploring the capital, saying hi to the pandas, and strolling along the Great Wall. Those who decide to go on a trek into the countryside will be rewarded by clear skies and beautiful views as well.
September falls within the region’s dry season and it is a prime time for safaris and wildlife viewing on a holiday in Zambia. Around this time, the animals gather near the watering holes so you will have no trouble spotting these beautiful creatures. With fewer tourists, you will have a great view without fighting for a good spot! Temperatures will be just under 30°C, so this is perfect if you are trying to escape gloomy weather.
6. Iguazu Falls, Brazil
The ninth month of the year is the best time to drop by the Iguazu Falls in Brazil. It is one of the dry seasons and the risk of rain is low. Sure, the Falls would not be at their peak, though they will still be impressive regardless. Compared to the summer months, there will be fewer people there so you can enjoy the stunning view all by yourself!
There are many great deals available for people who are seeking to save money on their trips. Not many people will be out and about in September so make the most out of it! Best of all, you will have more time to explore the tourist spots without having to jostle through a crowd.
