As the sun starts to fade and the days get shorter, what better way to extend your family’s summer than with a hot October half term break? If it’s a quick flight you’re after, both Jordan or Egypt are still warm this time of year and the major tourist crowds have now dissipated. If you’re happy to travel a little further afield, Asia in autumn could be the perfect destination. October kicks off the dry season in India and Nepal, bringing with it beautiful, tropical spring flora, fresh from the monsoon rains.
