The truth is that there are options for all tastes and pockets. From idyllic beaches that during the summer are crowded with people, going through the biggest festivals in the world, to mountain places where you will have to warm up but in which you will enjoy extraordinary landscapes. At this time of year you can enjoy good temperatures, an unparalleled nature and, all this, before the winter that allows any destination to look better than ever. If you are going to leave Barcelona or choose the Ciudad Condal as your destination, we recommend you to travel in the most comfortable way with Aerobús. It is the only bus service that directly connects the center of Barcelona with the El Prat airport during all the days of the year, and in only 35 minutes. In addition, you can buy the ticket online to have everything prepared in advance. But, first of all, let’s choose the perfect destination!
October is the perfect month to plan a trip to Morocco. In North Africa you will enjoy pleasant temperatures that will be perfect to explore its citadels, bazaars, medinas, deserts and fortresses. You can enjoy the Jemaa el-Fnaa square and discover a bustling city, full of hustlers, storytellers and snake charmers. In addition to the ‘red city’, if you have time to get to know Morocco thoroughly, we recommend that you spend a night among the dunes of your desert. The best known area is the Erg Chegaga Valley. In addition, in October there are flights to Rabat from € 27.
It is never too late to travel to Berlin, although we recommend that you do not do it in the middle of winter if you are cold. The German city has a frantic agenda and it is difficult to keep up, but you can be clear about one thing, you will not get bored. In addition, in October you can enjoy one of the most fun and versatile initiatives. The Festival of Lights, which this year celebrates 14 editions and has become the perfect plan in which artists and video artists project their works on the most emblematic monuments. It is the ideal occasion to reinvent the classics and approach an increasingly powerful artistic style.
The French capital, the city of love, the cradle of art … Paris is beautiful in all seasons. But in October you can enjoy essential dates with contemporary culture that make this city much more than impressionism, florists and accordions in Montmartre. The first of the dates is the White Night, an event in which art takes to the streets under the stars and the baton of Gaël Charbau. The second one is the International Fair of Contemporary Art in which the Grand Palais is filled with gallerists and collectors. And the third date is the smallest version of the FIAC, ArteÉlysées, where you’ll find furniture, urban art and design pieces.
Paradisiacal beaches in October? It’s possible. And we recommend this region northeast of Borneo which is the perfect destination for all kinds of friends. That is, it offers great plans for any type of traveler, whether you want to spend the day lying on the sand or if you prefer to make routes and get to know the idyllic landscape. Its beaches at this time of year are more clear, especially those of Tuaran and Palau Gaya, the genuine version of the neighboring island of Palawan (Philippines). In addition, in October they present different initiatives among which the Women Art Exhibition stands out in the curious Sabah gallery that claims the creativity of women in a macho country.
Natural Park of Redes (Asturias)
Asturias is one of the most beautiful places in the whole Spanish territory and has many idyllic corners that you have to visit when the heat disappears. The Natural Park of Networks is one of them. Many of the Asturians themselves do not know this place and it is not strange, it is a region that is a bit far from everything but that is preserved as an unaltered paradise of granaries, cows and sharp mountains. In autumn its mantle of strong colors predominates and the flowering of mushrooms, hazelnuts, apples and chestnuts that anyone likes. And to this is added a tourist awakening driven by the ecotourism center Tierra del Agua with which this territory is becoming known.
Whether you choose a destination to disconnect or not to stop all day long to get to know new places, whether you are looking for a destination abroad or a few kilometers from home, October is one of the best months to do so. You will find still good temperatures and much less crowds of people. And thanks to this you can enjoy much more of your trip. What are you waiting for to prepare a getaway in October?
