Cyprus is the ideal destination for anyone looking to relax on some stunning beaches, swim in crystal-clear waters and experience the vibrant nightlife. It's also decorated with many ancient ruins making it the perfect location for any history buff! The best time to visit Cyprus is between May and June - this is the driest period of the year and the temperatures can range between 23-28°C (73-82°F).
Turkey has a mix of oriental and European cultures as well as varying landscapes, from beaches to mountains to woodlands, making it a great destination for nature lovers. The ideal time to travel to Turkey is between April/May and September/October when the weather is mild and not too hot. This is also the shoulder season meaning there will be fewer tourists and fewer crowds.
Mainland Greece is the place to go if you really want to delve into ancient history and see iconic temples from Ancient Greece. But if you're seeking more of an island-escape type of vacation, you can visit any of the famous Greek Islands, from Santorini to Mykonos to Rhodes and many more, where you're sure to find pristine beaches and delicious cuisines. Much like Turkey, the best time to see Greece is in April-June and September-October when there are fewer tourists and the weather is still warm.
When you think of Egypt, you can picture the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, so it's no surprise that this destination is the perfect getaway for anyone that is passionate about history and ancient civilisations. To comfortably experience Egypt in its cooler temperatures, we suggest flying between October and April - additionally, there'll also be fewer crowds!
