Travelling off season

 

Travelling off season – introduction:

Did you ever think how is to travel only in off season? How would it be if all our holidays will be made in off season when all tourists are going in all the popular destinations from different reasons? Probably most of you already choose to spend the holidays in off season, but for those who need an advice we created this article where you can find ideas and possibilities to help you choose a holiday in off season.

When we speak about the dead season or off season, we automatically think about less expenses, but in the same time you think that the weather is bad, you have nothing to see, everything is closed and the place desolated. Well, is not like this because if you choose carefully the destination, you will have a great holiday on a low budget. Usually the less crowded season is considered to be in winter between November and March, but be careful because in mountains this is exactly the peak season especially in the resorts where you can practice winter sports. There usually is no off peak, only April-May and September-October could be considered less crowded months.

Travelling off season – why and when to travel off season:

When we speak about prices, we find out that if travelling off season almost all hotels and accommodation units offer different promotions or big discounts, the same with restaurants, but especially the plane tickets can have prices with tens or even hundreds of euros lower than in the peak tourist season. (Find more journeys on worldlifetimejourneys.com) Don’t forget about the fact that the cities full with tourists during summer, in winter will be less crowded and the attractions even if they will have a short visiting program, will give you the necessary satisfaction because you won’t need to get in the crowd with another few hundred or thousands of tourists and also you don’t need to wait for minutes to take some pictures. Usually in off season, tourists are fewer and cities and places you visit have a more accentuated local air and you’ll meet more locals than tourists.

The only big problem in the off season could be the weather where you will need to be lucky to have beautiful weather and nice temperatures. But not everywhere is the same. If in the most part of Northern Hemisphere is cold and the rainfall is high during the off season, there are a lot of places which will offer you temperatures over 10° C, which could be enough to walk and to admire the places, as long as there is no rain or powerful winds every day. However don’t expect the weather to be always beautiful and to have days without rain. In a 2 weeks holiday for example, be happy if you will have only 3-4 rainy days.

Travelling off season – what to do, where and when to go:

However is good to know that world’s biggest cities like New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Rome, Madrid, Sao Paolo, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok and many others cannot be influenced by the dead season because the activities and attractions will be always there opened and prepared to welcome their tourists in any weather, any season. So if it will rain you can easily visit a museum, eat in a restaurant or drink a hot tea or simply you can enjoy one of the available shows. But don’t forget that during winter the days are shorter, so we recommend you to start your day no later than 8-9 in the morning to enjoy the day light as much as you can.

If you love the mountain and hiking, is good to know that most of the parks and natural reservations, with their marked tracks will be closed during winter. So, to enjoy your days and not to be caught in the crowded tourist season, the best is to go either in May or in September-October. Most of the natural objectives open for tourists beginning April-May.
