If you’re looking to get away in September, you’re in luck. There are very few holiday destinations that don’t impress during the first month of autumn. It’s shoulder season all over the world, with hot temperatures softened by a relaxing breeze and rainy seasons fading out. Plus, it’s the end of the school holidays and most destinations will boast smaller crowds. The places we wouldn’t recommend are few and far between, and it might be quicker for us to list of said destinations. But below we’ve rounded up seven destinations that are not only nice in September – but are probably at their absolute peak. North Asia South Asia is just emerging from its rainy period, but we wouldn’t recommend it quite yet. Japan and the north of China are wonderful in the autumn however. Temperatures in Japan average a high of 26°C in September and a low of 20°C. While Beijing boasts an average high of 26 °C and a low of 14 °C with the rainy season now behind it. New England We’ve all seen those vibrant photos of New England in the fall. While the famous NYC is awesome all year round, it’s in September that we recommend all of its visitors take an extra week to explore the wider state and New England area. Whether it’s exploring Boston’s rich educational institutions, sampling Main’s freshest lobster or driving the scenic Route 112 through northern New Hampshire. Most major cities of Canada and USA Whether it’s Vancouver, Seattle, or Chicago – September is the final stretch of sunny weather for these northern cities. While Canada and the northern USA turn into a winter wonderland with Christmas bells and winter sports – summer lovers need to get in there before September ends. Central and Western Africa September still just manages to include itself in safari season – with Zimbabwe stealing the crown. With warm weather and long days, the watering holes are really popular with animals – especially elephants. Marrakesh Northern Africa is also a traveller’s delight in September, including the cultural city of Marrakesh. It’s still far enough south that summer is definitely still in full swing but the winter breeze is beginning to welcome itself to Morocco’s shores allowing for romantic Arabian nights. Italy If you’re looking for a quick break to the Mediterranean or a cultural city break, Italy is your best bet. Its southern location makes it a warmer choice than most other European cities, but the onset of autumn makes a day exploring the cities of Rome and Milan more comfortable than in the summer heat. Peru Like a few other entries on this list, September is Peru’s shoulder season where the crowds are dying down but the weather is still nice. The slightly cooler weather will lend a hand to active holidaymakers looking to hike the Inca Trail, or climb the rocky stairs of Machu Picchu. The capital city of Lima boasts temperatures somewhere between 17 °C and 21°C and the atmosphere is general dry with little rainfall. Where’s your favourite place to visit in September?
