Summer is undoubtedly a popular day for Americans to traveling. With kids out of school and agency environs a little more relaxed, it seems only natural to use your vacation periods and get out of town.
But the big question is: Where should you go? Patently, the possibilities are endless, but there are also certain places you might not want to visit between June and August. Most major European cities, for example, are overwhelmingly mobbed in the summer, and many establishments shut down in August as locals leave town. And traveling in certain areas of Asia can be less than ideal, thanks to very high temperatures and humidity degrees.
HuffPost asked some travelling experts for recommendations of where not to go in the summer — and when they would suggest visiting those places instead.
“Summer is the high season for the French capital, with expensive hotel rooms, tons of tourists and ridiculously long lines to museums. March and October are better hours to go. The weather may be a bit colder but the lines are much shorter! If you’re looking for old-world European glamour, art and culture in the summer, go to Vienna instead. Bonus: You can take a tram to the many wineries that surround the city.” — Jessica van Dop, travel media specialist and blogger at The Dining Traveler
