January 2019

Where to visit  MEXICO

Why this month Whether you’re planning on exploring the city or relaxing on the beach, January is warm, dry and ideal for a whale watching in the Baja Peninsula. The sea is warm this time of year, and the crowds tend to be smaller. An all round great time to experience the eclectic Mexican vibe.


February 2019

Where to visit  NEW ZEALAND 

Why this month Head to either the north or south island this month and you’ll miss the busy school holidays, but you’ll still catch the end of the beautiful summer. On the 6 February, the country celebrates the Treaty of Waitangi with public holiday, while the country’s biggest and best wine festival also takes place this month in Marlborough, with over 40 wineries, plus fine food and entertainment.

March 2019

Where to visit  BRAZIL

Why this month This year the Rio Carnival runs from 2nd-9th March, and as this month is always warm and dry, it’s the perfect month to enjoy the seductive samba beats and awespirational panoramic views.

April 2019

Where to visit  SRI LANKA

Why this month Avoid the monsoons and visit this month when the weather is calm and the seas are comfortable. Don’t miss the Sinhala and Tamil New Year on Sunday 14th April, which traditionally begins at the sighting of the new moon and sparks a public holiday. Expect joyful celebrations.

May 2019

Where to visit  PUGLIA, ITALY

Why this month With around 300 days of sunshine each year, this is a blue-sky destination nearly all year round, however May is particularly good time of year as the Italian holiday crowds won’t descend for another month. Travel here before the summer heat becomes too intense, and explore its historic and cultural richness.

June 2019

Where to visit  FRANCE

Why this month With significantly less rain and pleasant summer temperatures, visit France this month and you’ll be ensured the perfect weather for exploring the cities, countryside or coastal spots. Highlights this month are the Chaumont-sur-Loire International Garden Festival in the Loire Valley – think a French Chelsea Flower Show – while Paris museums begin their late summertime openings, making the capital a delightful weekend break this time of year.

July 2019

Where to visit  PORTUGAL

Why this month Soak up the endless sun and wallow in the warm waters as this month is bang in the middle of summer and the official swimming season.

August 2019

Where to visit  MALLORCA

Why this month Although this is the hottest month, it’s an ideal time to experience long, balmy evenings, when food and wine lovers can dine alfresco late into the night, taking in the incredible mountain or sea views.

September 2019

Where to visit  IBIZA

Why this month With the summer holiday rush over and the weather easing off a little, this month sees a slightly older crowd as fun-loving clubbers head to the legendary end-of-season closing parties. The road traffic is also a little less busy everywhere, so it makes a great month for exploring the island.

October 2019

Where to visit  BALI

Why this month If you want to catch the only month between the dry, windy season and the really wet monsoon days, this is it! However this lush, exotic paradise is close to the equator, so it’s sure to be sunny most of the day any time of year. The internationally renowned Writers and Readers festival is this month too, which hosts famous authors from around the world.

November 2019

Where to visit  THAILAND

Why this month Want to avoid that hot, sticky humidity and sudden down pours? Then this month sees both decrease significantly and the weather stay consistently dry. You’ll also just miss the festive peak season from December to January, when the prices rise dramatically, as do the number of visitors. One thing not to miss this month, however, is the truly spectacular and magical annual Lantern festival (Loy Krathong) that takes place on the night of 12th moon every year, when decorated lanterns are released onto the water, and glowing ones into the sky.

December 2019

Where to visit  WHISTLER

Why this month Obviously the snow is the highlight in Whistler and December is a great month from guaranteed snow fall and to experience the freshest, deepest powder. The resort is in full-swing, with attractions, excursions and restaurants fully operating, while the atmosphere is incredibly magical with Christmas festivities and twinkling decorations.
