Suggested itineraries in October

The gateway to winter, October is the ideal month for an exotic Asian getaway. The summer monsoon is coming to an end in central Vietnam, which means a little rain to break the temperature but mostly sunny days in the mid-to-south coast’s beautiful beaches. By October the southwest monsoon in India is easing so if you want to visit the cultural triangle, now is a fantastic time. Rajasthan has little rain in October and because of the recent monsoon, trees are a verdant green and tropical hibiscus flowers add splashes of colour.
