It is a dilemma to everyone! When is a good time to go to Asia? When is a good time to go to the Caribbean? The endless discussions with friends and every one of them claiming different answers because Google said so, each confident answer leads to another site proving us wrong. Hopefully, this post will clear the air, somewhat. For us, as long as it is not Tsunami, earthquake or volcano season, every destination is great any time of the year! If it rains, then dance in the rain. Try it. For a change. The sun will eventually come out (Annie says so!)

{January – February – March}

{Snow gear and boots} EVERYWHERE in Europe. In a nutshell. Lebanon too! New York, Alaska

{Beach, flip flops and margaritas} Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Bahamas, Barbados, Miami, Cayman Islands,Β Turks & Caicos, Jamaica, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Vietnam, Laos, Maldives, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Oman, U.A.E, India, Philippines, Nepal, Thailand,Malaysia

{April – May – June}

Spain, Italy, Paris, London (always a tricky one), Amsterdam, Indonesia (Bali)Β  Beirut ( Ski and beach!), L.A, Japan(Cherry blossoms), Greece, Portugal, Philippines, Bahamas, French Polynesia, Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica (Although the Caribbean hurricane season starts in May) Sweden, Prague, Almafi Coast, Cyprus, Hawaii, Lebanon

{July – August – September}

Iceland, Greece, Italy, France, Spain (IBIZA), Indonesia (Bali), Seychelles, Canada, Kenya, Sardinia, Scotland for festivals, Amsterdam, Egypt, Bhutan, China, Argentina, Malta, San Fransisco, Orlando, Chicago (Music festival), Malaysia

{October – November – December}

{Beach, flip flops and margaritas} Florida, Mauritius, Texas, Australia, Ecuador, South Africa, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South East Asia towards December, St. Barts, California, Belize, UAE

{Ski and boots} Courchevel, French Alps, Berlin, New York, All of Europe, Lebanon

Hurricane Seasons: May is usually a fantastic time to still head out to the Caribbean, however we faced the beginning of the hurricane season towards the end of May, so we would say end of May to November.

Monsoon Season: For most of our trips to South East Asia we experienced rain in Bali in early October, and showers in Thailand by mid December. In Koh Samui it rains in December, while in Phuket it’s sunny! Sometimes you are lucky and your trip is cloudy or no spells of rain, we did not mind at all! The smell after the rain is so beautiful in these places and the sound of the rain in the tropical island is quite a phenomenal sight to see! We would be in flip flops and dance in the summer rain! We would say end of June to December, expect rainy season. Some more than others, but when it rains, it pours!
