October is a great time to travel and here are our top 5 picks of the month.
The temperature’s still in the late 20’s in October, so Marrakech is the perfect place
to visit if you’re craving some October sun.
Head to a Hammam for a traditional Marrakech spa treatment, watch a belly dance or take
a stroll in the stunning Jardin Majorelle.
Our favourite thing about Marrakech has got to be the souks.
Souk Semmarine is a great place to start.
You’ll find ceramics, kaftans, traditional clothing and, of course, delicious Moroccan
From October 20th, Austria’s most important film event takes place inside some of the
most beautiful cinemas in Vienna’s historic centre.
Over 94,000 visitors descend on the film festival to watch a selection of over 300 films from
across the globe!
While you’re in Vienna we recommend taking in the baroque streetscapes, and stopping
by the Belvedere to visit the world’s largest collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt.
Autumn is the best time to visit China.
Golden week is China’s National Holiday taking place from October 1st to the 7th,
and it’s for the whole week!
Although it’s peak tourist season, it’s also the time to join the celebrations and
explore what Beijing has to offer.
We’d recommend visiting the Forbidden City.
It’s China’s largest and best-preserved collection of ancient buildings, and the largest
palace complex in the world.
It was off limits for 500 years, but has been listed as a Unesco World Heritage since 1987.
Every October people flock to the annual Notte Bianca event in the cityscape of Valletta,
The event’s a huge celebration of people, culture and art and is the perfect excuse
to get a bit of October sun.
The city’s museums, art galleries and other attractions are open free of charge, and you’ll
find the city’s finest musicians, dancers and other creative geniuses lining the streets
- it will definitely be an unforgettable night for everyone.
For winter sun head to Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria, which is one of the island’s favourite
beach and sun hot-spots.
It’s only about 35 minutes south of the airport passing Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas
on the way, and it’s absolutely stunning.
The beautiful Amadores beach here is ideal for families or anyone who’s not a particularly
strong swimmer, because you have great harbour walls and sea defences that mean that the
waves are tiny and the water’s nice and shallow.
However, our favourite thing to do here by far is dolphin watching.
We took a tour and it did not disappoint, we saw a whole pod of dolphins swimming around
It was amazing.
That’s our top picks for Travelling Better in October!
