As much as it’s necessary we all work for a living, taking a break from it all is important. This break is even more fun if you jet off to some place you haven’t been before. If your vacation time happens to land in August then it is important to have a whole catalogue to choose from all depending on your likes. Even better the different seasons enable you to choose a specific location. Here are the best places to visit in August:
This is the place to be if you want to feel some sun and have little chance of it raining. And also better, you can always take your family with you since there is something for everyone. One of the more popular water sports there is snorkeling. This swimming while wearing a mask and you even get to interact with the marine life one on one. This is a pretty unique and thrilling experience from where I stand.
Sightseeing is also a very interesting experience that educates you and at the same time fills you with awe and wonder. Sanctuary of Truth is very iconic and is definitely a place you want to be. Especialy if you have an unquenchable thirst for history. This is an embodiment of the Thai culture and the more you learn, the more fascinating it all gets. If you want to spend some time with your family, visiting parks and watching is always a great choice. And if all you want is to spend some days in the sun getting tan, Thailand has some great beaches like Koh Talu.
Also as you are relaxing there, some exciting festivals happen to take place in this month for example the Hua Hin Food Festival which is amazing even as the name suggests. To add to all this good stuff about Thailand, the hotels there are amazing according to the positive reviews which makes going there a great idea.
2. New Zealand
New Zealand is the place to be if you are not afraid to brave a little cold since August marks the end of winter. The most popular activities at this time of year are skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing.
Thats not all there is to it in August though. If you want to experience the scenery and getting involved in sports is not really your thing. I recomend taking a drive. However, you should be cautious of icy roads in the morning. If you’ve always wanted to tick hot air ballooning off your bucket list, this is a good time to do it. And if all you want is to just relax and take your mind off things, boat cruising and visiting hot pools are the two activities you should indulge yourself in.
As expected of this beautiful country, there is an array of events all waiting to take place. It all depends on what you like but the baseline is that you should definitely stick around long enough to experience at least one. The most popular festivals are all in either art, sports and concerts. The concerts include every time of music and as of right now, some big names have already booked some gigs there.
Winter games happen at this time of the year all have always lived up to everyone’s high expectation. Overall New Zealand is a country that is effortlessly cool and going there would really be an experience of a life time.
The weather is pretty hot all year around. But August is in the wet season and so some light rain here and there is to be expected. Out of the various activities you can indulge in, snorkeling with turtles seems exciting especially when with family.
All this can be done by taking a cruise in which you can indulge yourself in more fun stuff. Other fun activity may include exploring of ship wrecks which is not something you can find anywhere. You can also take a cruise just to relax without having to take part in any water sport. Just sit in your beach chair and enjoy the bliss while sipping on a drink. It’s no secret that Caribbean people know how to party and can really bring it.
The one event that really fun is the Grand Kadooment Day. It celebrates the end of Crop Over, another major festival. Masquerade Bands head to the Spring Garden while dressed in costumes embellished with colorful feathers, jewels and bright accents while dancing behind music trucks and moving bars. More into sports? Barbados International Hockey Festival takes place in August bringing together teams from all over the world. After all that you can either go on an island cruise or attend the after party at the beach. As someone looking to go on vacation in August Barbados is a good choice since it has a cool and different vibe compared to other holiday destinations.
