THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN MAY

May is a wonderful time to start visiting Southern Europe before the skies become too hot or everyone leaves for the August shutdown.

THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN JUNE

Zanzibar and New York City are just two extremes open for travel at this time of the year. And literature lovers should make their way to Dublin for Bloomsday.

THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN JULY

July marks the month for Canada, with the first of the month marking Canada Day. It's a summer of festivals and the great outdoors.

THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN AUGUST

August marks your best shot at Britain as the rugged Pembrokeshire coastline warms up and the Royal Parks of London spill with summery good cheer.

Surprise beach spots in Europe, like Scheveningen in The Hague, also make sense.

THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN SEPTEMBER

September's a dream month for much of Europe, as the crowds melt, the kids go back to school but the days are still long, the air fresh. Much of China and Japan is readily accessible and the oppressive levels of heat in the Middle East begin to wilt down to more bearable levels.

THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN OCTOBER

Greece and the Galapagos come into their own as travel destinations in October, while "leaf peeping" makes forests scarlet in northeast USA.

THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN NOVEMBER

November is a great time to visit the UNESCO side of Tenerife with warm days and evenings to match both beach and culture activities. It's also good for Yangon and Myanmar as well as Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah in the Middle East. 

THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN DECEMBER

Tis the season for Christmas markets, not to mention the start of the ski season in Europe. In the southern hemispheres, this marks one of the few times you can access Patagonia and it's just fun in the sun in Australia and South Africa.
