Where to go on holiday in October

Come October, autumn has well and truly arrived in the UK. If you’re looking to escape the dark mornings and moody skies, where’s best to travel? You might want to go whale watching in New Zealand or see the paddy fields of Vietnam.


From the mighty Mekong Delta in the south to spectacular Halong Bay in the north, Vietnam serves up a land of mesmerising natural beauty. Ho Chi Minh City offers a vivid introduction to the country’s fascinating history, with its ornate temples and pagodas, elegant French colonial architecture and museums. Weather-wise, October is one of the best months to visit. You’ll avoid the high humidity and monsoon rains and you’ll also be able to see the country at its greenest.

New Zealand

New Zealand may have some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet, but it isn’t just about looks. There's also Māori culture to learn about, wildlife to watch out for and world-class wines to sample. In October, spring is in full swing, with the weather pleasant, and vast landscapes in bloom. It's also migrating season, so you’ll have a greater chance of seeing whales, too.
