Now that the clocks have gone back and the evenings are getting even darker, it’s no wonder many people are seriously thinking about escaping somewhere warm for a week or so. Even a long weekend in a different location can be just the tonic you need to keep going until the excitement of the festive season finally kicks in.
There’s no doubt about it – November is a great month to get away. The only thing you have to think about is where you are going to go. Luckily there are some sensational opportunities to consider.
Not surprisingly there are a few destinations in Europe that are popular at this time of year, as people escape the winter weather in the UK for warmer climes elsewhere. Spain is perennially popular for obvious reasons; there are plenty of beaches to relax on and soak up some rays before returning home to darker, colder days.
You might want to take the opportunity to go further afield and explore other regions of the world. Even if you only have a week to spare, it is still long enough to enjoy a totally different country and culture. Take Bali for instance. It may not be the first place you would think of for a November break, but in actual fact this can be one of the best times to go if you don’t like crowds. Things will start to pick up once December arrives, so now could be the best possible time to visit for a more relaxing break.
Hong Kong is another good bet for November exploration. It can be too hot to handle during the summer, but November enjoys that nice in between stage that makes it bearable and not too crowded for exploring either.
New Zealand is another far flung destination for a longer holiday. For many, the country needs no introduction, but November marks the start of the best weather of the year. This makes it an ideal time to enjoy the great outdoors that New Zealand is famous for – and there is a lot of it to explore too.
As you can see there are many different destinations and attractions to consider if a November holiday is what you are after. Late bookings can also mean lower prices so you might even be able to get a better deal than you thought you would. Make sure you don’t forget the essentials, including your passport, your single trip travel insurance and of course all the little essentials you couldn’t do without.
It may not be summer in the UK any more, but better weather and conditions await you in any number of exotic locations around the world.
