As autumn approaches and the leaves begin to turn, it is a great time to travel to enjoy decent weather, especially when the heat of summer has gone. It is still reliably sunny and it is romantic to walk under the magnificent display of colour of oaks, beeches, and chestnuts.
Six great places to travel in September are:
Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey. Situated at the shortest distance of sea-crossing between Europe and Asia, the city forms the largest urban agglomeration in Europe. In September, it is an exciting place to see hundreds of thousands of raptors and storks flying south towards Africa for the season of winter. The Camlic Hills and the waterfront of the city are good bird-spotting locations. The night scene of Istanbul is noted as animated and unparalleled.
Combining the massive crowds of August with the muggy days, a visit to Istanbul during the peak months might not be wise, but during September things get quite a bit better. Days are warm but rarely too hot, and there’s still not much rain to worry about.
Putting up in Istanbul hotels may be expensive, but there are several hotels which offer discounts. There are websites such as Trip Advisor which offer a listing of several hotels in the city. These hotels are guaranteed to fit your budget and that too without sacrificing any comfort.
To experience the spectacle of changing leaves, make your trip in the second half of the month of September. Several cruise lines are available such as Holland America, Crystal, Princess, Norwegian and Carnival. Taking a four to ten days cruise will be a life enriching experience for you. Bus tour of Eastern Canada is also quite popular. If are like driving, simply drive up to Niagara Falls. Iceberg Alley will definitely fascinate you. Get to know how it feels to see the world’s highest tides, which reach as high as 50 feet, in the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick.
Canadian hotels are identified as comfy as well as high standard. The highest cleanliness can be expected from coast-to-coast hotels given that the travel and leisure market is definitely an essential part of Canada’s economic climate. The hotels here are required to meet quality specifications simply because of the strict wellness restrictions in Canada.
Europe is also popular in the fall, again because there are fewer crowds. If you are visiting an area in the Mediterranean, the water is usually still warm enough for swimming or snorkelling. London, Paris, Venice, Edinburgh, Dublin, Barcelona, Rome and the Greek Isles are some of the most famous places in Europe. Tours, Cruises or train packages between each city is the best to opt to visit the different cities. Europe in particular really opens up with some great deals in cities that actually have their best weather of the year at the end of summer. Airfares get lower and hotels and hostels get cheaper and easier to find, so this is really perfect if you’ve got the time off.
In London, which is the most famous of the European places, have several hotels in different parts of the city. There are super luxury hotels as well as affordable and hotels. Among the several types of London accommodations, the Shaftesbury hotels are the premier kinds which also offer services at quite affordable rates. Since it is a very expensive city, you are advised to go for London accommodation which provide the ultimate comfortable services but at reasonable rates.
Prague, Czech Republic
Another city where “great weather” might be a stretch during September is Prague. The first half of September is actually quite nice, with very little rainfall, so it’s the perfect time of year to visit unless you like to bundle up during the day.
Prague is the City of a Hundred Spires, a UNESCO monument. It is also one of the most fascinating cities in this planet. Prague Castle is the most prominent tourist attraction. Set on a hill, it affords visitors fine views over the whole city. With immensely beautiful locations, it is quite cheap compared to other European cities that aren’t half as lovely or charming. Hotels in particular can be expensive so it’s best to book early to lock in something in a good neighbourhood if you can.
If you want to visit the beautiful city of Lisbon, September is the best month. It has warm days and really very pleasant evenings and almost nil rainfall. As the temperature starts cooling off as well after the summer, sightseeing becomes a very pleasurable experience. Perhaps, Lisbon has the finest year-round climate in entire Europe, so there’s really no bad time to go. There is a unique hostel culture in the city. This hostel culture has grown to be extremely popular and thus a favourite for that kind of tourists who are basically backpackers.
Madrid of Spain witnesses a huge number of tourists in September. After the extreme hot summer, September is the best time to visit Madrid. It can be said that the weather of September is almost perfect having warm days and nights which are very pleasant. Rainfall is not at all a thing to be concerned of. It must be noted here that in Madrid hotel rates actually fall in the months of July and August, and start rising again in September, so booking early is recommended if you want a good bargain at a well located place. Hostels here can be great value, though some can be a bit shabby so it’s best to research before booking.
Visiting Madrid does not come cheaply and it would be great if you can find a hotel that can accommodate your budget. Check Trip Advisor and browse the listings for hotels in Madrid.
Choose the venue for your next September vacation and plan it accordingly. Don’t forget your camera and hadycam to capture some of the best moments of your life.
