Best Places to Holiday in August

When you think about the best time to take a holiday, you often think of holidays at Christmas and Easter or during the blazing summer months. You probably don’t think about taking a holiday in August, but you should!

August is probably the best time to go on a holiday especially if you are travelling with a significant other or family member, as there are fewer crowds which gives almost any place you choose to go an intimate vibe.

Thinking that a holiday in August sounds perfect, but unsure where to go? Let us help you! The following are some of our favourite places to go in August.


Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu

Tour Ancient Ruins in Peru

Peru is filled with dozens of ancient sites which are just waiting to be explored. Unfortunately, if you visit during the traditional times for travelling, you are stuck exploring in extremely hot weather. That is why August is one of the best times to visit Peru.

Visit in August and you will have slightly cooler temperatures and you won’t have to deal with a lot of rain. Which will enable you time to tour places like Machu Picchu or the trails of the Andes.

Experience Fun Cultural Festivals with a Trip to Taiwan

The extremely hot and humid temperatures are often enough to make people avoid Taiwan in August, but if you can handle the heat and extreme weather it is a wonderful place to visit at this time of the year. There are dozens of different cultural festivals held throughout the month of August. Visit during this time and you will be able to walk through the street vendors, sample local foods from the street market and take part in memorable festival activities.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side with a Trip to Tanzania

August is the absolute perfect time to visit this beautiful, exotic country. The rainy season is over and the temperatures aren’t that extreme which is ideal for anyone who is ready to go on an African safari. This type of weather practically encourages the animals to roam around.

Want to see some amazing wildlife while on your trip to Tanzania? Make sure you schedule a stop at either Selous or Ruaha. These are the biggest wildlife parks in the country. You will be guaranteed to see some amazing animals if you stop for a visit.

Edinburgh has Something for Everyone

Edinburgh is one of those places that everyone loves to visit. If you don’t want to constantly fight crowds of people to see the sights, you should visit in August. The weather is perfect and there won’t be too many people.

There really is something for everyone in Edinburgh. History buffs will love touring the local castles, museums and even underground haunted vaults while those who prefer to hang with the local crowd will enjoy the dozens of small pubs, concert venues and festivals throughout the city.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe starts in early August.  The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has grown into the largest arts festivals in the world.  It has spawned copycat events everywhere from Dublin to New York, but nowhere has quite captured the heady exuberance and sheer diversity of the Scottish capital in August.
