Top 5 Hottest Destinations in September
From the Mediterranean to the South China Sea, there are plenty of hot countries to visit during September. Here is just a handful:
Temperatures in Morocco range from 26 to 30°C during September, making it ideal for lazy days by the beach. Saïdia, a golden-sand beach close to the border of Algeria, is one of the prettiest to visit. Marrakech, on the other hand, is perfect for culture vultures. Explore the city’s famous souks to find the sights and scents of traditional Moroccan fare. Just be prepared to haggle!
Dubai is scorching in September, with temperatures often reaching 40°C. If this is too hot for you, then don’t worry – there are lots of water parks to cool off in. One of the most impressive is Aquaventure, which can be found located on Dubai’s man-made Palm Islands . Here you’ll find 10 huge water slides, thrilling zip lines, and splash zones for little ones. You can even swim with dolphins!
East Asia’s biggest country makes for an unusual and memorable holiday destination to visit in September. Here you will find average temperatures ranging from 33°C in built-up areas, to around 20°C in rural regions. September is a particularly good time to head to the Yellow Mountains in Anhui Province, where hot springs, low-lying clouds and oddly-shaped pine trees offer a distinct view of China’s incredible landscape.
Don’t worry about packing a coat on your visit to Cyprus. While the weather is warm, travellers should make the journey to Ayia Napa – a party town known for its fist-pumping tunes and late-night entertainment. Other areas, such as Nissi Beach, offer low-key relaxation, with crystal-clear waters and white-sand beaches.
While temperatures start to cool off in Egypt during September, the mercury still rises to around 35°C in the daytime. On your trip, head to Sharm El Sheikh, where bustling local markets, national parks and luxury all-inclusive hotels entice tourists. Hotels in the heart of Na’ama Bay are particularly indulgent, with private beaches, spas, all-inclusive food and drink – some even have their own diving schools!
