I’d suggest everyone to give a day’s time to enjoy the sunshine and indulge in some spa therapy.
Best time to visit Maldives is during Summers. It’s sugar looking beaches awaits your presence in summer. It’s a high season and most of the resorts are often booked already. You better book your reservation online to enjoy Maldives thoroughly. Tourist flock here mostly during Christmas when the whole Maldives is drenched in color of celebration.
Maldives is not all about watching scenic beaches and living in a lavish holiday. Like any other beach destination, Maldives too has water sport to indulge into. Groove this time with the waves and breeze trying your hands on some water sports like scuba diving and a banana boat ride.
For Water sport lovers – May to November is the best time to visit. During this months, water clarity is more due to increased level of water. One can dwell into jet-skiing, windsurfing, diving and snorkeling can give an amazing experience to all tourists.
For those who doesn’t know much about the “BURNING MAN”, here’s a quick intro:

Burning man begins on the last Monday of August and ends on first Monday of September. The even is held in Black Rock Desert in the northern Nevada, USA.
Paris, France’s most populous city is located on the beautiful banks of river Seine. Situated in the north of this lovely country, Paris houses right at the center of the Île-de-France region. Boasting of a population of around 2,230,000 people within its administrative range, its metropolitan is considered as one of the densely populated geographical area in the whole of Europe. Around twelve million Parisian inhabitants have made Paris their home.
While I always dreamt of experiencing this mesmerizing city, I was quite baffled as to when to visit Paris.To understand the best time to visit Paris, I have been visiting Paris to past four year and indulging in all its four season and accommodating various temperaments and each time the city has something new to offer.
My family particularly enjoys being there during summers, as my kids school is on break, celebrations captivates the entire city and climate is pleasant, so quite welcoming. I remember last year when I was in Paris during winters; albeit cold I picked up one the attractions; ice skating at the most famous Hotel de Ville and shopped to glory for my favorite stuff at the busiest, Christmas market. Many of my friends prefer visiting during spring and fall not only enjoy the enchanting rains and cool climate but extend their stay as; prices fall and the city is less crowded.
High and low season can affect budget
June to October are considered high or peak seasons. Visitors can experience rise in ; rooms prices , transportation etc .
January to March are known to be the low seasons. City is less crowded and the prices too fall tremendously.
Shoulder seasons includes the months; April to May and November to December.
Ask me it’s a fact that due to various business fairs, conferences and conventions the months September, October and January witness a rise in the visits. So best time to visit Paris also depends upon your assigned travel budget as well.
Trips based on weather conditions
If you yearn to be in Paris, like my wife then be a beholder of typically warn and sunny climate marked by an average rise up to 75 degree. Winters bestow light rains and snowfall and a temperature embracing a high of 44 degrees. My friends have always wondered how overcast and misty Paris can be in spring and fall with an average temperature of around 60 degrees. Irrespective of when you are visiting the city my personal advice to you would be pack an umbrella to be ready for the possibility of rains. Weather conditions are also one of the preferences that determine when to visit Paris.
Save while on tour
While visiting Paris during winters and springs I have seen the prices of the rooms, transportation, food and more going down; as tourism tends to slow down while the climate is cooler. This slow down price persuades many to gift a package deal along with a reduced fare on flights to their near and dear ones. My friends who love to extend their stay in the city prefer early spring and late fall; as it’s a bang for their buck.
To conclude not to lose out and be a part of its great grandeur.
