Autumn is often seen as the best time of year to travel, whether home or abroad. The weather may not be as hot and sunny as over the summer months, but this can be a distinct advantage when wanting to make the most of travel abroad. Even UK travel is cheaper and easier, with fewer crowds once the kids are back to school. Here are some of the best value destinations for those of you looking to take a trip this Autumn.

After the summer, the Italian tourists all go back to work and Tuscany is warm and inviting. The perfect place to go for wine buffs, September and October is when the there are grape festivals aplenty in the region, as the annual wine harvest takes place then. The last Sunday in September is when the Chianti wine festival is celebrated, with over 800 wines on offer and a real party atmosphere.

This exotic destination is far too hot in the summer and the heat is particularly overwhelming in the heaving mass of people that haggle in the souks. Still offering plenty of heat and sunshine in the Autumn, it is a little more bearable and the breezes that blow in from the Atlas mountains give the air a fresher feel.

Another place where the heat and the crowds can be overwhelming in the summer, Egypt is perfect in the Autumn. The lower temperatures make sightseeing altogether more pleasant and visitors will be able to enjoy ancient sights without masses or people spoiling the view.

Cambodia hosts the spectacular Water Festival in November, with nigh on one million people flocking to the banks of the Tonle Sap. Dragon boat races set village against village and the partying lasts for three days.

The Canary Islands.
The Canaries suffer from strong winds over the summer months and this, coupled with the intense summer heat, can make the islands uncomfortable. By the Autumn, both the winds and the heat have dissipated and the sea is still warm enough for visitors to make the most of the water sports on offer.

There are so many other wonderful destinations that make Autumn the ideal time to travel. Whether you want to witness the spectacular autumn colours in New England or you want to make the most of the cooler temperatures in places such as Africa, there really is no better time to travel.
