ideas by month - november

November is probably the cheapest month of the year for flights and the time when most hotels offer their best discounts.  So, whether you want to fly to the Maldives for some scuba diving, Mauritius for spa and golf, or the Seychelles for gorgeous beaches and snorkelling, November is a great time to go.  The same is true of the Caribbean, the Arabian Gulf, Thailand and numerous other gorgeous destinations.  We have noticed that more and more people think of November as a good month to get in to shape before the onslaught of the December drinks party season, so detox retreats, fitness holidays and weight loss programmes are popular options.  Other ideas include pilates bootcamp in Thailand, yoga in Morocco or India, road biking in Cape Town or trail running in Madeira.  Our travel specialists can organise everything for you.
