The Best and Worst Destinations to Put on Your Summer Travel List

You can travel to countless destinations this summer, but which are the best and which ones are the worst?

Summer is the best time for traveling for many. You can travel to countless destinations, but which are the best and which ones are the worst? Various factors should be taken into account, like weather, traveler sentiment, and attractions. Whether you are looking for a thrilling outdoor adventure or a relaxing getaway beach destination, this list will break each down. Read on to learn more!

One of the Best: Greece and Its Islands

Summer is a nice time to visit Greece’s top-rated destinations, like Athens, Santorini, and Crete. Between the unforgettable sunsets, beautiful weather, beaches, archaeological sites from the past, and the food – it’s a must-visit destination during the summertime.

One of the Worst: Cancun, Mexico

Don’t want to overspend money, but are interested in a summer trip to Cancun? Stop right there. The end of May marks the start of rainy season, which usually lasts throughout all of the summer. This means you can kiss bye-bye to sunbathing and enjoying walks along the beach. If you’d rather sit in a comfortable hotel room and binge-watch Netflix instead of bathing under the Caribbean sun, then Mexico is the destination of choice. We think it is too much of a gamble to visit most summer weeks to get your money’s worth.

One of the Best: Sicily, Italy

If you’re planning a trip to Italy, summer is the time to go! Sicily is the area you will want to take advantage of. In Sicily, the countryside is bursting with wildflowers, and the lack of summer tourists will mean you can enjoy the towns much better. Summer is the perfect time to take in the stunning scenery of red poppies, green fields, and roses. The weather is excellent for enjoying the outdoors and attending village festivals as well.

One of the Worst: North Thailand and Bangkok

Have you noticed some affordable flight prices for a summer trip to Thailand? Be cautious if you see any because Thailand is a bad travel destination for the summer, especially in May and early June, since it is the hottest few weeks in the country. If you can’t handle the extreme heat, a holiday here is definitely best avoided. Much like in Mexico, frequent rainstorms happen during the summer, so to avoid the smell of damp clothes or moldy shoes, travel elsewhere.
