Tuscany in autumn


Where to travel in September


September marks your last chance to take in the European summer. What’s more, it’s also an ideal opportunity to avoid the crowds, with such southern countries as Croatia, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece among the highlights.

However, there’s also plenty of excitement outside of the Continent. As Canada and the USA slip towards a temperate autumn, you can avoid the crowds – and hiked prices – to take in New England’s spectacular fall foliage.

Turning south, the winelands, desert spectaculars and colonial cities of central and northern Chile come into their own. Southern Peru also eases into its shoulder season, meaning fewer tourists and still-great temperatures.

Southern Africa is also entering its spring, meaning ideal safaris to Botswana, Tanzania and South Africa. You can even experience the Hermanus Whale Watching Festival, next door to Cape Town. Otherwise, consider a self-drive through Namibia's stunning scenery – just be sure to book well in advance. To the north, Morocco is also coming into its best, with Oualidia’s beaches sunny and quiet, with the locals having left.

Temperatures in the Middle East are more tolerable in September; Jordan is particularly appealing. Oman, too, delights with its cool mountains and the palm-fringed beaches of tropical Salalah.

Plus, there are superb savings on leading five-star hotels in Rajasthan’s Golden Triangle – Delhi, the Taj Mahal and Jaipur.

Lastly, September is a good time for many parts of Australia. The weather is heating up in the south and the monsoons won’t have hit the north. The humpback migration off the east coast and cheaper airfares don’t hurt, either.
