Even if summer is almost over, many people are still looking for new adventures and for cheap destinations to visit in August. After all, there is another whole month while the weather is still good, so here are eight of the best places to see in this period.
1.Cancun, Mexico is a tropical destination you should consider in this end of summer. With no doubt, it will be hot every day and warm every evening in August, but you will be able to enjoy the sea breeze along the beaches. When you are not on the beach, the opportunities are limitless: a day trip to nearby Isla Mujeres, a visit to the Xel-Ha eco-park, which boasts the largest and the most beautiful natural aquarium in the world or a short excursion to Chichen Itza, the most impressive Mayan archaeological ruins site.
2.Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Here you will get excited not only by the warm weather, but also by the large sandy beaches and the great resorts nearby. Don’t forget about water sports opportunities and test your limits in a speedboat ride against the waves. For more adventure, experience a zip-line tour, travel across treetops in the rain forests and enjoy the amazing views.
3.Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Being barely in the tropics but in the Southern Hemisphere, this city is plenty warm in August, being also the driest time of year. So don’t worry about afternoon rainstorms and spend your time properly: relax on the famous beaches or visit the most popular sights: the statue of Christ the Redeemer, the Botanical Garden and ride a cable car to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain.
4.Sofia, Bulgaria is a top choice for a cultural travel across Europe. In August you will find here very good deals at some of the fancier hotels in town, so don’t think twice. Visit Sofia to enjoy some of the best tours of the city to Rila Monastery, to Vitosha Mountain or to see Belogradchik Rocks and the Belogradchik Fortress.
5.Split, Croatia. A gorgeous historic city, easy to reach and cheap in this period is waiting for you to discover its wonders. There are some beautiful beaches here, but don’t forget about the islands nearby, where you can go by a short ferry ride. Make a day trip to Krka Waterfalls and enjoy some amazing water sports like scuba diving and water rafting.
6.Budapest, Hungary. You may find out that hotel prices are not so low in the end of the summer. But if you do more research, you will see that hostel prices are really favorable. So book a hostel room and visit Budapest, with its famous landmarks: Margaret Bridge, over Danube, the Royal Castle, the Fishermen’s Bastion and Mattias Church.
7.Kuta, Bali, in Indonesia, located just below the Equator, is a perfect destination for this period, with hot days and warm nights, where you can find very cheap guest-houses and activities. You can go to Waterbomb Bali, Asia’s number 1 water-park or you can stay in nature and go water rafting down Ayung River.
8.Tel Aviv, Israel, is also a cheap place if you book as early as possible. This big impressive city, with nice beaches, gives you many opportunities: visit Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Old City and the Rabin Square or make a trip to Dead Sea.
