Главная фишка в таких небольших финских городах (и, в целом, скандинавских), как Лаппеэнранта — это их своеобразная европейская провинциальность, мало похожая на провинциальность российскую. Здесь всё предельно чисто и цивилизованно, а население живёт какой-то удивительно расслабленной, не отягощённой извечными философскими вопросами, жизнью. Иногда этого в России ужасно не хватает.

Where to Travel Each Month of the Year? August – December

Read more on "Where to Travel Each Month of the Year? August – December" »

AUGUST – The Bahamas

It is not a secret that the best period to visit The Bahamas, the so-called high season, starts in May and finishes in October. This period is perfect considering weather conditions, hotel and flight deals, and water temperatures.

While June and July are the most popular months for crowds of tourists assailing the group of islands, August is not so overcrowded, but the temperatures are milder and the weather is not as good.

 

 

The average temperature is around 26°C (79°F), while the water temperature is about 30°C (86°F). Brilliant? Oh yes! Especially for those who love bright national events: Emancipation Day and the Cat Island Regatta.

The latter takes place in Southern Bahamas, when Cat Island becomes extremely vivid and bright. Here you can enjoy performances of music bands, take part in quadrille dancing, learn ancient national contests and games, and try wonderful dishes of local cuisine.

Interesting facts about Bahamas:

  • On July 10, 1973, The Bahamas became independent from the United Kingdom.
  • The Bahamas is located on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle.
  • The highest mountain in The Bahamas is Mount Alvernia on Cat Island.

 

 

SEPTEMBER – Paris

 

The most romantic European capital is wonderful in any season. However, the best time to visit Paris is April through October when the weather is parfait (perfect) and there is almost no rain.

However, as you may know, during high summer season Paris is extremely over crowded as it is one of the most popular world destinations.

Honeymooners, lovers, families, people learning French and millions of others who are passionate about this city come here in high season. All hotels, restaurants, concerts are booked in advance.

Moreover, June and July are the periods of “Les Soldes”, six-week shopping sales in the fashion capital.

 

 

In order to avoid over-booked everything, we suggest you come to Paris in September, which is a calmer and milder month in every sense of the word.  This month is also perfect for visiting beautiful Paris Gardens in its blossoming period.

The weather is dry and sunny, with a rare shower. The average temperature is around 19°C (66°F) which is a wonderful weather to explore the French capital and enjoy its beauty.

Interesting facts about Paris:

  • Paris was originally a Roman City named “Lutetia.”
  • Paris has 6,100 rues (streets)
  • The French capital is so fond of coffee that you can get an espresso for €1 in 181 spots

 

OCTOBER – Mauritius

 

The average temperature in October in Mauritius remains at around 23°C (73°F). October is generally very mild and warm, with rare rains and high humidity. The sea temperature stays the same almost year round at about 24°C (75°F), which is only 4°C (7°F) cooler in February.

While summer in Mauritius starts in November  bringing high temperatures, the month of October represents the shoulder season, with lower temperatures than in summer but warm enough to feel comfortable and enjoy beach recreation.

  • Mauritius does not maintain a standing army.
  • Mauritius’ cuisine is a combination of Creole, French, Chinese and Indian influences.

 

NOVEMBER – Cancun

 

The weather in Cancun is warm year-round. However, November is a perfect time to visit as it cools down from the summer heat and becomes less scorching.

Moreover, it is when hurricane season draws to an end. However, the official high season starts from the end of November, when the temperatures get higher and the climate becoming more humid.

Sometimes an occasional Norte, or even cold front, can bring a chilly wind to the area. However, a cold rain quickly changes with tropical weather.

 

 

Interesting facts about Cancun:
  • Cancun used to be called Ekab, literally “black earth”
  • More than a third of Mexico’s tourism revenue is generated from Cancun

 

DECEMBER – Havana, Cuba

 

The average temperature in Havana in December is around 23 °C (75°F). Cuba’s capital city Havana holds such great events as Havana Jazz Festiva (music festival), Parrandas de Remedios (with street parades and rumba percussion), Charangas de Bejucal (street party fest).

Everyone who is searching for the perfect Cuban atmosphere, wonderful beaches, a lot of music, bright costumes, verdant nature and ideal weather, should come in December.

 

 

Interesting facts about Havana:

  • In 1848, Havana became the third city in the world to receive gas lighting.
