The best time to explore the magic of Cambodia’s walled cities, intricate temples, colourful markets and intriguing villages is in the dry season between October and March, avoiding the monsoon which falls between June and September.


For Hot, sunny, lazy days the best time to visit is between November to April. Perhaps for Christmas or a New Year break, there are few places that offer such a deliciously tantalising combination of powdery white beaches, hideaway hotels and pure self-indulgence.



Beat the winter blues by following the swallows to East Africa. The Kenya coast is a great place to relax body and soul with a little sun worship and some spa action. For the more active then it’s a great time for deep sea fishing and scuba diving.



December to March and July to October are considered the best months to visit Zanzibar. Once the hub of the spice and slave trades and the base for David Livingstone’s explorations into the heart of the African continent, the history is intriguing and complemented by some heavenly beaches and beautiful hotels.


The height of the Austral summer… as the temperatures rise, so the wildlife becomes more active with penguin chicks hatching, seal pups being born and whales more numerous…a magical time to visit the great ‘White Continent’.
