    November Holiday Reviews 

    • Where: Cape Town, South Africa
    • Who: Traveladdict
    • When: November

    Cape Town is one of the most spectacular cities in the world. Most people tend to spend a few days in Cape Town before driving on through the garden route, followed by a few days at Kruger National Park.
    Saying that could easily spend a good week in Cape Town alone and still only have scratched the surface of what this city has to offer.

    We visited Cape Town in November, the weather averaged 28 degrees each day which was perfect. South Africa seems to have a reputation of being unsafe however I can honestly say that we felt really safe within the city and never saw any problems. We were staying by the V&A waterfront area of town. This area makes a great base and its really easy to explore the city before coming back to your hotel and enjoying the vibrant nightlife of the V&A.

    Things not to miss include a trip to Table Mountain. Catch a cable car to experience a breathtaking birds eye view of the city. Once at the top there's a great little cafe where you can have a drink and enjoy the views in the sun. Boulders Beach is also worth a visit where you can see hundreds of jackass penguins waddling the along the Atlantic shores.

    Camps Bay is the place to splash your cash on a posh sea food lunch whilst watching how the other half live! You also get spectacular views of Table Mountain from most of the beach lined restaurants.
    For nightlife, head to Long Street in the centre of town. Lots of trendy bars that have a nice relaxed scene. Food and drink are super cheap in Cape Town, make sure you try their amazing steaks washed down by local wine! Speaking of wine, even if you are using Cape Town as your base it is easy to visit the famous winelands which are just an hour's drive from the city. There are lots of organised trips departing from Cape Town if you don't want to drive.

    • Where: Sri Lanka
    • Who: beachbum
    • When: November

    Sri Lanka offers it all from sunswept beaches, amazing wildlife and stunning natural scenery. I instantly fell in love with the country's welcoming people, incredible (and spicy!) food, and green and luscious land...so much so, I've visited the country twice!

    It would be so, so easy to spend two weeks in Sri Lanka sitting by a pool or basking on the gorgeous palm fringed beaches lapping up the Indian Ocean. Whilst this is ever so tempting this would be a crying shame. Sri Lanka has SO much to offer - to be honest, after two trips I really feel like I've only just touched the surface. Here are my top tips!

    1. Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage
    Located just outside Colombo this makes for a perfect day trip and was one of my highlights. Baby & adult elephants line up for feeding early morning (around 9am). After watching them feed from giant milk bottles they are then taken down to the river for bathing. There is plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with the elephants and its a great way to spend the morning watching elephants in their natural habitat.

    2. Food! It would be a crime to visit Sri Lanka and not sample the most flavorsome curries and dhal's you will ever eat! Try the local street food, 5* dining for under a quid!

    3. Negombo
    Whilst this is pretty commercialized, it makes for a great stop up point before heading home due to its proximity to Colombo airport. The beach here is lovely and stretches for miles. There is a great night market selling arts, crafts and general goodies for you to take back with you. There is also some great local restaurants that are super cheap!

    4. Kandy
    The journey from Colombo to Kandy is breathtaking. En-route be sure to make time for waterfall and tea plantation stops. Once in Kandy, take a walk around the gorgeous lake and the Unesco World Heritage Site of Sigiriya.

    With so much to see and do, ill be booking my third trip sooner rather than later!

    • Where: Kalutara, Sri Lanka
    • Who: charscully
    • When: November

    We stayed in the area of Kalutara a the Avani Hotel - a quiet area/hotel. We organized our airport pick up/ trips though Select Sri Lanka,(Owners name is Gayan) who were excellent, quick responses to emails and upon arrival had a comfortable fully air-conditioned vehicle.

    We only had 5 days in Sri lanka so after one day of relaxing we were up 5am and on the way to see the Elephant Orphanage which was really special, don't miss swim time which is at 10am. We then went onto the spice/herb gardens... I would not do this again, it was a hard sell on over priced products. After this we headed to the botanical gardens, which is well worth a visit (if you can get there around lunch time it is a great place to stop off ( most hotels will give you a packed lunch). Our final stop was Kandy to see the temple of the tooth! Kandy is a beautiful area and I would highly recommend spending a few nights here.

    Whilst having reservations about where we could safely eat, we came across a restaurant called Fresh Lobsters whist walking along the beach it was a short Tuk tuk ride from the hotel and we were looked after by the owner Philip and his wife ( the chef) you must pre order your fish (prawns etc) the day before but it is well worth it. The food was incredible and with beers for 4 people came to around GBP 35

    We travelled on the 3rd Nov and the weather was really warm, only raining for an hour or so in the afternoon.

    • Where: Koh Lanta, Thailand
    • Who: sean
    • When: November

    Koh Lanta is an incredible island located in Southern Thailand in the Krabi Province. It is in hopping distance of the more commercial islands of Phuket and Koh Phi Phi but seems to attract a more older clientele than its neighboring islands.

    Koh Lanta is certainly less commercial than Phi Phi and Phuket and I would really recommend the island for those who are looking for luxurious accommodation on a quieter island. The island is really laid back and would be perfect for honeymooners wanting to get away from it all.

    My partner and I have visited the island twice, once in September and once in November. The weather was really good in November although we did have quite a bit of rain during September. The best time to travel is in the dry period of November - April.

    The beaches of Koh Lanta are gorgeous. Our favorite was Klong Dao. Although this is the most popular beach on the island it never really gets that busy because it is 3km long! It boasts amazing soft white sand and lovely shallow clear water. There are lots of restaurants and bars along this beach making it very easy to spend the day there. If you want a really quiet beach, we like the sands just outside the Pimalai hotel. Again the beach is really long with gorgeous clear water, but because there is only a couple of hotels dotted along the beach hence it never gets too crowded. We particularly liked the jungle type bars hidden in the trees along this beach which were perfect for watching the sun go down over the sea.

    • Where: Muscat, Oman
    • Who: Traveladdict
    • When: November

    We booked a very last minute break to Muscat in search of a relaxing winter sun break. We traveled in November and the weather was stunning. Clear blue sky's every day and an average temperature of 25 degrees. Perfect for lying round the pool getting a winter tan!

    Most of the hotels in Oman are 5* and are of superior quality. We stayed in one of three Shangri La hotels and based ourselves at the Al Waha Resort. The Al Waha part of the Shangri La complex is more geared towards families, however we traveled as a couple and were never disturbed by children. In fact, we loved the massive free form Oasis pools with lazy rivers!

    Muscat is stunning. It is nestled among the mountains right by the sea. The town is quite expensive for eating and drinking out therefore we tended to stay in the hotel as we was only on a short break and booked half board. Drinks were very pricey but I guess you would expect that when drinking in a 5* hotel.

    Our hotel was based 15 minutes from both Muscat center and the airport - whilst the city is interesting I would advise booking a proper guided tour of the city as we spent a lot of time getting lost and as there wasn't a huge amount of tourists around it did feel like we were taking wrong turns all the time! That been said, I'm glad we ventured out of the hotel as it is far too easy to lie by the pool all day and miss everything the country offers.

    Must see's are the turtles in Ras Al Hadd - its an amazing morning and super cheap at around £2pp! The local guides will take you down to the beach and you can see the turtles hatch. Also, for some last minute shopping, head to the local souks to big up some real bargains. Just be prepared to haggle!!

    • Where: Yasawa Islands, Fiji
    • Who: BexBD
    • When: November

    Fiji is a great place to mix a beach holiday with a little bit of adventure. I travelled from Nadi up the Yasawa Islands.

    We took the boat and spent 6 hours on it to work our way back from the top down, which was really great. The Islands at the top of the group are a lot more rocky and are larger, whereas the Islands closer to Nadi are tiny and very Robinson Cruso-esq.

    I loved the back to basic feel on the Islands, so if you're looking for luxury I wouldn't suggest Island hopping. We did some day trips to local villages, learnt how to make jewellery from coconut shells and leaves. We also did scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming with sharks.

    For me the best bit was that every few days we got back on the boat and travelled to somewhere new, so I was never bored. I do think that perhaps Fiji may be aimed at younger travellers rather than couples - BUT, that might have been because that's what I was doing and noticed it more.

    The food was basic and sometimes a bit questionable, as was the accommodation that we stayed in. But there did appear to be some lovely private huts.

    There were stunning views, peaceful walks and back to basic style living, which made you feel a million miles away from the rush and bustle of home.

    • Where: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
    • Who: GoddessAnastasia
    • When: November

    This place is comparable to Las Vegas in many ways... an adult playground (but with more rules). Lots of fun to be had - but at a price! Everything is expensive, at least in the tourist areas. We did not venture to any local hotspots. Alcohol is hard to come by, if you are not in a hotel due to the strict licensing laws. The dress code is becoming more relaxed for westerners, but dont wear anything too revealing... you will get alot of unwanted attention. The malls are HUGE and stock anything you could possibly want. We travelled in November, and the weather was perfect - around 28 degrees.
    The hotels are stunning, the nighclubs are superb, the food is yummy and on the whole the people are very friendly. The diamond district is well worth a visit - in comparison to UK prices, you get a bargain.
    Architecture enthusiasts will have alot to like, whereas anyone seeking culture (who is not muslim, and wont be allowed into the sacred mosques) dont bother. Dubai as a city has no soul - its too new.

    • Where: Madrid, Spain
    • Who: Leahlas
    • When: November

    Me and a friend went for a 2 night weekend break in Madrid, mainly for shopping and a bit of a getaway.
    We thought we would be clever and save money, and try to take the metro underground from the airport to our hotel as this looked easy on the map, but this took us an hour and a half and was seriously confusing experience of escalators. This wasn't a smart move as it wasted lots of time on our short weekend and we were shattered by the time we got to our hotel! I would recommend a bus or taxi.

    This was a fantastic city for shopping, it had all the shops you could think of and was easy to wander around. The buildings were quite pretty but the streets were manic and busy at all times of the day it seemed, and a bit chaotic, but thats what you get in a big city.

    We had the notion of searching out some rustic traditional tapas dishes, but be warned they are not really like the inauthentic dishes you can get back home apart from potatas braves and chorizo, in fact we came across pigs ears and scrambled egg in pigs blood! So that was a bit of a surprise in our tapas!

    Even in November, although the evenings were short the days were sun filled and clear and was a nice time to visit. We did manage to go and visit the Royal Palace which was stunning, and one night we went to the Kapital nightclub which was around €20 to get in and included a free drink. It had lots of different levels with different music and atmospheres on each level. It was a great night and lots of dancing on the ground floor. It probably wasn't the most cultural weekend due to our shopping Itinary but was definitely a fun weekend. People were generally friendly and prices didn't seem quite as expensive as other cities like Paris, London or Rome.
