The weather in the UK is now wet and sort of chilly. I hear some parts of the country will be having some snow, which tells you how cold it is at the moment. I find the weather miserable. It is the season where I find myself staying indoors the most thanks to the gloomy weather. If you are in the UK, and are in search of somewhere warm and sunny to explore this season, here are 3 holiday destination ideas for you.
The Middle East is a great holiday destination all year round, especially now that we are experiencing cold weather. It is usually nice and warm in Dubai. I have visited Dubai several times with the family, and the best time to explore Dubai is between November and March. The weather is warm but not boiling warm during these months. And it is a great place to escape to during the chilly winter months.
There are various activities for everyone in Dubai. We have visited Dubai as a couple before the twins were born, and we have travelled to Dubai with the kiddies twice. It was great fun every time.
We visited Muscat Oman last summer. It was boiling hot so we didn’t really enjoy the trip. So I won’t recommend you visit during the summer months. But the weather is a lot cooler this time of the year (just like in Dubai), which makes it another great holiday destination.
There are various family friendly activities, both indoors and outdoors. I would love to go back with the kids during the winter months in future.
Algarve, Portugal is another great place to visit this season. We visited in October half term, and had an amazing time. The weather was warm and sunny all the time we were there. We explored the beach and all the city had to offer. The kids loved it. There was a lot to see and do, and we will definitely be visiting again.
It is definitely a city to explore, and get a break from the chilly winter weather. I just checked the weather forecast at Algarve now, and it is a lovely 15 degrees with some sunshine. That would be amazing to have now compared to the miserable 7 degrees with rain here.
What do you think of these places? Have you visited any of them before? If I had to pick a favourite, I would pick Dubai for luxury and fun., Algarve for proximity and Muscat for a more relaxed holiday.
