Protect yourself from disease

By C. Stevens, teacher at AIT L’Ametlla

Many ancient cities were protected by massive walls. If an enemy breached just a small section of a wall, the safety of the entire city was at risk. Your body is like a walled city. How you care for your defenses has much to do with how healthy you are. Consider five elements that can expose you to disease and how you can put up the best possible defenses.


THE THREAT: Harmful organisms can “march” straight into your body by way of contaminated water.
YOUR DEFENSE: The best defense is to protect your water supply from contamination.


THE THREAT: Harmful organisms can be present in or on your food.
YOUR DEFENSE: Contaminated food may look fresh and nutritious. So, get into the habit of thoroughly washing all fruits and vegetables. Ensure that food utensils, kitchen surfaces, and your hands are clean when preparing or serving food. Some foods require cooking at a certain temperature in order to destroy dangerous microbes. Beware of food that is discolored or has an unpleasant odor or taste—signs that an army of microorganisms could be waiting for you. Refrigerate unused food as soon as possible.


THE THREAT: Some insects can infect you with the harmful microorganisms that live inside them.
YOUR DEFENSE: Limit contact with disease-carrying insects by staying indoors when they are active or by wearing protective clothing, such as long sleeves and long trousers. Sleep under treated insect nets, and use personal insect repellent. Eliminate containers of stagnant water where mosquitoes could breed.


THE THREAT: Microbes that live harmlessly inside an animal can threaten your health. If you are bitten or scratched by a pet or another animal or exposed to its feces, you could be at risk.
YOUR DEFENSE: Some people choose to keep their animals outside the house to minimize contact with them. Wash your hands after touching a domestic animal, and avoid all contact with wild animals. If you are bitten or scratched, wash the wound thoroughly and seek a doctor’s advice.


THE THREAT: Some germs can invade your body by riding on tiny droplets in someone’s cough or sneeze. They can also spread through skin contact, such as hugging or shaking hands.
YOUR DEFENSE: Do not share personal items, such as razors, toothbrushes, or towels. Avoid contact with body fluids from animals or from other people, including blood and products derived from blood. And do not underestimate the benefits of washing your hands thoroughly and frequently. It is perhaps the most effective way you can stop the spread of infection.


1. How can be water a threat? What to do?
2. How can be insects a threat? What to do?
3. How can be animals a threat? What to do?
4. How can be people a threat? What to do?

Liverpool – A Titanic City

By J. A. Salazar, AIT Language School

Slavery, John Lennon, Mohamed Salah, and The Titanic. You may not think they have much in common. Yet, there is one thing that connects them all. And that is the city of Liverpool.

Today, Liverpool is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, located 350km from London, in the north-west of England. It has a fascinating riverfront and some excellent sights, including the largest number of museums and galleries outside London. But what has made Liverpool the city it is today?

A Brief History

Liverpool received its charter from King John in 1207. However, it remained a fishing village for 500 years until the slave trade prompted its expansion. Slavery brought Liverpool wealth, with traders buying and selling slaves that were subsequently exported to the Caribbean and the Americas. When slavery was abolished in Britain in 1807, Liverpool continued to expand, largely because of the industrial revolution.

While most of Europe was embroiled in wars and conflicts, the British empire prospered. Liverpool became the most important shipping port in the world and Britain’s wealthiest city. Shipping companies, such as the Star Line which owned the Titanic, were based in the port of Liverpool.

Liverpool began to decline after World War 1. The demise of the British Empire saw many industries and companies disappearing. By the latter part of 20 th century, Liverpool became a byword for poverty and economic ruin. Yet the city continued to thrive culturally. The 1960s saw the birth of the Beatles—the world’s most famous musical band. And in the last fifty years, Liverpool Football Club has become one of the most successful clubs in footballing history.

Liverpool Today

Liverpool is nothing but a city of excellence. In 2008 it was named European Capital of Culture. Today it has much that visitors can do to enjoy this unique and dynamic metropolis:

  • The Merseyside Maritime Museum gives visitors an opportunity to see first-hand the history of the Titanic, with models, photographs, and memorabilia that offer a unique insight into one of the most famous maritime tragedies ever.
  • The Carvern Club was the home of The Beatles. Original photographs and mementos of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Star decorate the walls of this fascinating venue—an unmissable journey for fans and non-fans alike.
  • The ferry across the River Mersey provides spectacular views of the city’s waterfront.
  • For those who love football, a visit to Anfield, the home of Liverpool Football Club is a must.
  • And for the shoppers, Bold Street is the centre for independent and creative stores. The Bohemian Quarter also has plenty of coffee shops if you want to stop and refuel.

Tintagel Castle, Where History and Legend Meet

By Joseph Anthony Salazar, AIT English Language School

Romulus Augustulus, the last Roman emperor to rule in Italy, lost his empire to Flavius Odoacer in the Battle of Ravenna in the year 476. According to traditional history, this battle marked the end of the Ancient Roman Empire. Young Augustulus was only sixteen years old when he was forced to abdicate his throne.

Legend, however, says that Augustulus fled Italy and travelled to Britannia under the protection of Aurelius, a general of the Nova Invicta Legion. Both men were also accompanied by a magic-practicing Druid called Ambrosinus, who had journeyed to Italy to find and protect the sword of Julius Caesar. The sword contained a Latin inscription, which in part read: E X CALIVR

In Britannia, young Augustulus uses the sword of Julius Caesar to unite the land. He becomes King Pendragon, father of King Arthur, and Ambrosinus adopts his Druid name, Merlin.

Tintagel Castle

This is, of course, only legend. However, the beautiful, rugged coastline of Cornwall in south-west England hides a castle where the history and legend of King Arthur are inseparable. Tintagel Castle is located on a tiny peninsula which projects out into the Cornish Sea. It is without a doubt one of the most spectacular ancient sites anywhere in Britain. Its historic association with legendary King Arthur make it a place certainly worth visiting.

Gateway to the castle

Gateway to the castle

From about the 5th to the 7th century AD, Tintagel Castle was an important fortress as well as the probable residence of the rulers of Cornwall. Likely, this is what inspired the writer Geoffrey of Monmouth to name Tintagel Castle as the place where King Arthur was conceived with the help of Merlin. Since then, tales of this legendary King have shrouded the castle in mists of romance.

Stairs and bridge to the castle

Stairs and bridge to the castle

Today, ruined walls are all the remain of this fascinating castle. But the views of the Cornish coastline are spectacular, as is the bronze statue of King Arthur clutching the sword of Excalibur. So why not include the beautiful county of Cornwall on your next visit to Britain. Be inspired by its charm, its history and of course, its magic.

Sky Garden—Los jardines más elevados de Londres

Hoy te presentamos el mejor mirador gratuito de Londres con vistas 360º de toda la ciudad.

Sky Garden—Los jardines más elevados de Londres

Por Joseph Anthony Salazar, AIT English Language School

¿Qué es Sky Garden?

En pocas palabras, Sky Garden es un invernadero que se encuentra en la azotea de uno de los rascacielos más elevados de Londres. Los londinenses cariñosamente lo llaman el Walkie Talkie, debido al parecido del rascacielos a este dispositivo electrónico. Toda la azotea del edificio es acristalada, y además de contener un precioso jardín, el invernadero también acoge varios bares y un restaurante. Lo más impactante de Sky Garden, sin embargo, son las vistas. Desde lo más alto de este impresionante rascacielos el espectador tiene las mejores perspectivas de 360º de la ciudad, superando incluso a las de la mismísima London Eye—la noria más famosa del mundo.

¿Cuánto cuesta ver el Sky Garden?


Esto es lo mejor de todo—no cuesta nada. Es absolutamente gratis. Eso sí, previamente debes sacar una entrada para subir a la azotea. La entrada se consigue accediend

o a la página oficial del rascacielos. Una vez que tengas la entrada, tendrás derecho a una visita de 90 minutos de duración—suficiente tiempo para tomar un refresco y contemplar las maravillosas vistas.

¿Cómo llegar a Sky Garden?

Sky Garden se encuentra en el edificio 20 Fenchurch Street, en La City—en el centro financiero de la City La Londres. Hay varias maneras de llegar al edificio:

  • Metro: paradas Monument, Tower Hill, Tower Gate, Aldgate, Bank y Mansion House de las líneas Circle y District.
  • Tren: paradas London Fenchurch Street, Cannon Street, y London Bridge.
  • Autobús: la línea 40 es la más práctica y cercana.

Para hacer una reserva

Página web oficial:

Es necesario reservar con antelación a través de esta página web, pinchando la pestaña Book a Free Visit. Las entradas salen cada lunes, y normalmente sólo salen entradas para las siguientes tres semanas. Una vez que hayas elegido día y hora, recibirás una confirmación de reserva a tu email que debes imprimir y presentar en la entrada. Al entrar deberás pasar por un arco de seguridad, y después montar en un ascensor hasta la planta 35, donde se encuentra el Sky Garden.

¿Se puede comer bien y barato en Londres? ¡Claro que sí!

Londres no es únicamente una ciudad de palacios, museos y monumentos. También es una ciudad en la que se puede comer bien, y no tiene por qué costarte un ojo de la cara.

Por Joseph Anthony Salazar, AIT English Language School

Si has tenido la oportunidad de visitar la ciudad de Londres, seguramente habrás comprobado que no es exactamente una ciudad barata. En lo que se refiere al precio de las viviendas, alquileres y hoteles, Londres se encuentra entre las ciudades más caras del mundo. Y hasta hace poco, también la comida en Londres era cara y mala.

En años recientes, sin embargo, han empezado a surgir lugares en los que el visitante a Londres puede comer muy bien… y hacerlo sin tener que pagar una fortuna. Muchos de estos lugares son antiguos mercados, almacenes y tabernas que se han convertido en zonas para sentarse y disfrutar de comida procedente de todos los rincones del mundo. Los precios oscilan entre los 7€ y 10€ por persona. He aquí algunas ideas en el centro de Londres.


Tal vez sea el mercado de comida más famoso de Londres. Ofrece una variedad de comida fresca, tapas y platos preparados procedentes de todo el mundo. Los mejores días son los miércoles, jueves y viernes.

Parada de metro: London Bridge



Se trata de un pequeño y vibrante mercado repleto de puestos de comida, terrazas y cafeterías.

Parada de metro: Maltby St

Maltby Street Market


Este mercado se encuentra en la parte inferior del Royal Festival Hall, muy cerca de la famosa noria “London Eye”. En él se puede probar una gran variedad de tapas, quesos, alimentos y repostería de todo el mundo. Es el lugar perfecto para detenerse y reponer fuerzas sin gastar mucho dinero.

Parada de metro: Waterloo o Charing Cross


Southbank Centre Food Market


Con decenas de tabernas repartidas por toda la ciudad, JD Wetherspoon ofrece lugares para sentarse y disfrutar de una selección de platos combinados, postres y cervezas de todo el mundo, en un ambiente acogedor y típicamente británico. Una típica cena para dos personas puede costar entre 15€ y 20€. Para aprovechar bien el tiempo, puedes descargarte la App oficial, elegir tu taberna, hacer tu pedido y pagarlo en línea. Los camareros traerán lo que has pedido directamente a tu mesa.

La Garriga or L’Ametlla to London with a Difference

By Joseph Salazar

Viajar a Londres desde La Garriga o L’Ametlla es más fácil de lo que piensas

If you live in La Garriga or L’Ametlla, travelling to London isn’t difficult. In fact, these days it can almost be as easy as travelling to any city in Catalonia. There is no shortage of flights to the English capital—on average, every two hours one passenger airplane takes off from El Prat to London.
TrainHowever, if you want to try something refreshingly different, why not take the train. The romance of rail travel is hard to describe. A train journey has a contemplative appeal that no other form of transport can offer. You can stare out of a window, read or simply contemplate the good things in life. A relatively new high-speed service connects Barcelona Sants to Gare de Lyon in Paris. And another bullet train links Paris Gare du Nord to London’s St. Pancras Station. Travel time is about 8 hours in total. So, it is possible to have breakfast in Barcelona, lunch in Paris and dinner in London—all in one day!

TrainA Rail Europe ticket to London from Barcelona allows you to break your trip in Paris, not just for a few hours but for several days if you wish, at no extra cost, before you continue your journey to London—and all for less than €200 return. So why not take a trip with a difference. Enjoy the best of three worlds, and do it in style.

by Joseph Salazar, teacher at AIT Language School

En el post de esta semana os llevamos de viaje a un parque nacional de Inglaterra … ¿Te animas a visitarlo en tus próximas vacaciones?

Its natural beauty captivated the hearts of famed writers and poets, such as William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. The Lake District became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017.

lake districtBut it’s not just the scenery and tranquillity that attracts visitors. The Lake District also hosts a number of music festivals that draws young and old alike. The region is riddled with fine hotels and B+Bs, offering hospitality that will make you want to return again and again.

So, if you want to practice your English and at the same time enjoy one of the most stunning locations in England, why not visit the Lake District. You can fly from Barcelona to Manchester Airport, and either rent a car or take a train direct from the airport to Windermere, at the heart of the Lake District. Journey time is about two hours.

Travelling in March!

Let’s travel! 24 great destinations with great weather in March

The month of March is one of the better ones on the calendar for budget travelers since it’s well before the summer season in the Northern Hemisphere and the winter crowds in the tropical areas are starting to thin out at the same time. Through much of Latin America and Asia you can find perfect weather with off-peak hotel prices and reasonable crowds.

By Roger Wade (Price of Travel)

For those starting in North America or Europe you’ll find that most of these places will require a fairly long flight to reach, but that’s the price you pay for warm weather this time of year, and those staying for at least two weeks can easily justify the airfare by the cheap prices they pay once they have arrived.

Looking for tropical beaches? Check our cheapest Caribbean islands list for the best-value destinations, including at least a few that are surprisingly cheap even in high season.

The Americas

With the United States and Canada either being frozen or expensive (south Florida) this time of year, you’ll want to head to Latin America or the Caribbean for the best bargains with sunny and warm weather.

The CaribbeanNegril Jamaica

If you are looking for cultural destinations then there are many better choices below, but if you are mainly looking to relax on a beach in the warm weather then the Caribbean is your best bet in March. Obviously many of its islands are quite expensive, while others continue to be great bargains. The Dominican Republic and Jamaica are quite cheap in general, with a few resort areas being surprisingly inexpensive.

Believe it or not, the cheapest option for most people is going to be a all-inclusive resort. Rates at most of them are very competitive so they often only cost a bit more than resorts where everything is sold separately. Specifically on the Dominican Republic and in Mexico near Cancun, you can get an all-inclusive room for two starting not much over US$100 per night in March. Nicer places start closer to US$200 per night for two people, which is still quite cheap when it includes all meals and alcohol.

Cancun, Mexico

  • March avg high: 86F/30C
  • March avg low: 71F/22C
  • March avg precip: 2.1″/5.3cm

March is still part of the high season in Cancun and all over the Caribbean, but it’s still very good value and prices are lower than during the Christmas weeks. With Easter on March 27 in 2016, it will make the week leading up to that busier than usual so if you want to join that crowd you should book sooner than normal. Aside from that, you can still find pretty good deals to Cancun as well as nearby Playa del Carmen and Cozumel even a few weeks out.

One of the best things about Cancun holidays is that the airport is the busiest in the entire region so it has more direct flights in from key hubs in North America and Europe than any other destination nearby. This keeps flights cheaper than to most islands, and easier to find as well. There are also some good all-inclusive resorts in the Cancun area, though they don’t offer quite the great value that those in Punta Cana (below) do.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$32 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$82 per night for two people

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

  • March avg high: 85F/29C
  • March avg low: 72F/22C
  • March avg precip: 1.0″/2.5cm

PuntaCanaDRAgain, March is part of the high season in Punta Cana and the last week of the month might be busier than usual because it’s Easter, but still Punta Cana is the best-value destination in the Caribbean for larger resorts and especially for all-inclusive resorts. The rates drop down in summer but then it’s also hotter with some chance of rainfall, so March really is an ideal month to take advantage of the perfect dry weather and reasonable prices.

The resort hotels along the stretch of Punta Cana beaches tend to be large, with many having well over 500 rooms to go along with multiple pools and extensive recreational facilities. Many resorts here are also very family oriented so they could be ideal for a holiday with the kids or even the extended family. Flights into the Punta Cana airport are also among the cheaper fares into the Caribbean, with many direct flights from large hubs, so this is a good choice for many types of travelers.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$45 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$75 per night for two people

Montego Bay, Jamaica

  • March avg high: 85F/29C
  • March avg low: 72F/22C
  • March avg precip: 0.8″/2.0cm

Montego Bay is along the northern coast of Jamaica, which is a long way from the arguably sketchy areas of the country. The large and busy airport here has direct flights MontegoBayin from many destinations in North America and Europe, so fares tend to be reasonable, even for a trip of just a long weekend. The Montego Bay area has hundreds of hotels in all price ranges, from modest places a few blocks off the beach up to luxury resorts that you’ll never want to leave.

If Montego Bay itself doesn’t sound perfect then you might instead consider Negril or Ocho Rios, both of which are about 90 minutes from the same airport and each has a different feel. All combined there are about 500 hotels to choose from, including many all-inclusives, so it can be worth checking each of the 3 areas (that are all served by the same airport) and picking the deal that suits you best.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$90 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$244 per night for two people

Ambergris Caye, Belize

  • March avg high: 79F/26C
  • March avg low: 74F/23C
  • March avg precip: 1.9″/4.8cm

March is definitely part of high season in Belize, so it’s a good thing that even during this period it’s fairly cheap by most standards. The weather is perfect day and night San Pedro Belizewith almost no chance of rain. San Pedro on Ambergris Caye is the most expensive part of the island so backpackers and budget travelers are advised to head to Caye Caulker, very nearby, instead, for lower prices and a similar vibe.

Belize is definitely one of the cheapest Caribbean destinations, and the offshore islands actually do have quite a Caribbean feel in spite of being surrounded by Latin America. There are wonderful resorts here for those willing to spend more, but even the cheaper hotels are decent, and very good bargains even in high season.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$108 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$292 per night for two people

San Jose, Costa Rica

  • March avg high: 79F/26C
  • March avg low: 59F/15CSan Jose
  • March avg precip: 0.8″/2.0cm

While the capital city of Costa Rica isn’t terribly special on its own, San Jose is where most people will be landing first and the weather there is actually a bit cooler than most beach towns due to the elevation. All of Costa Rica is still on high season in March, but it’s still quite cheap by most standards so it deserves consideration for sure.

The beaches (especially on the Pacific side) are great for surfing and the whole country is brimming with canopy tours and adventure activities, so it’s very big with the Spring Break crowd as well as before and after. Still, it’s hard to find this ideal weather and more to like in such a cheap country so close to the US in March. The most polished resorts are in the Tamarindo area along the northern Pacific coast, so if you are mainly coming to relax on a beach or near a pool, that is probably the place to start your search.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$70 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$85 per night for two people

Mexico City, Mexico

  • March avg high: 78F/26C
  • March avg low: 49F/9C
  • March avg precip: 0.4″/1.0cm

Due to its elevation, Mexico City is fairly cool during winter, but by March the days have warmed up enough that it will feel great when arriving from a cold climate. This city is routinely underrated as a cultural destination by those who might fear the worst, and the city center is very safe by almost any standard.

The food, the nightlife, and the shopping are other great reasons to visit Mexico City at any time of year. Perhaps best of all, it’s all very cheap compared to most of Latin America so you can afford to splurge a bit while still keeping costs down.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$74 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$89 per night for two people

Lima, Peru

  • March avg high: 80F/27C
  • March avg low: 69F/21C
  • March avg precip: 0.0″/0.0cm

As a very popular summer destination for South Americans, Lima can be quite crowded from December through February, but by March the crowds are thinning out and hotel prices are falling a bit, in spite of the continuing perfect weather. This is another historic colonial city that also has very good nightlife and excellent food at very good prices.

Most people who visit Lima from far away will do it as part of a tour of South America, and in that context it’s a great stop for at least a few days. By the way, the rainy season in Cusco goes on in March, so the trails can sometimes be cut off, although many people go anyway.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$54 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$116 per night for two people

Cartagena, Colombia

  • March avg high: 86F/30C
  • March avg low: 77F/25C
  • March avg precip: 0.1″/0.3cm

Cartagena is an excellent choice for a late-winter vacation as the weather is still pretty much perfect and yet hotel prices are starting to ease off of their high-season levels. There are great deals on beach hotels in this city from 2-star all the way up to 5-stars, and airfare prices are often cheaper than you’d expect as well.

Another key feature about this city is that it’s a cultural destination in addition to being a great beach spot so you can explore the historic city center and include some culture on an otherwise hedonistic getaway.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$53 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$87 per night for two people

Santiago, Chile

  • March avg high: 80F/27C
  • March avg low: 51F/11C
  • March avg precip: 0.1″/0.3cm

Santiago is far enough south that it’s starting to cool off just a bit by March, which is a good thing because it’s even more pleasant. This is another city that is popular with South Americans during their summer so hotel prices start coming down and crowds start thinning out by March, making it an ideal time to come. There’s almost zero threat of rain, and evenings are pleasantly cool.

Another feature of Santiago is that it’s the gateway to several different other destinations within Chile so many people come and stay for just a few days before heading on to a mountain resort or the colonial city of Valparaiso.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$61 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$110 per night for two people

Buenos Aires, Argentina

  • March avg high: 84F/27C
  • March avg low: 63F/17C
  • March avg precip: 5.3″/13.3cm

Though March is actually the wettest month in Buenos Aires, visitors are unlikely to notice because rainfall is fairly consistent through the year. Again, the temBuenos Airesperatures in March are pretty much ideal and many South American tourists have gone back home by now so hotel prices are a bit lower.

Buenos Aires is starting to look a bit expensive by South American standards, but it’s really more apt to compare it to Europe since that’s how it looks and feels, which still makes it a wonderful bargain. Food and drinks are notoriously good and cheap so you will feel like you are splurging even while keeping your budget low.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$58 per night for two people
  • 4-star hotels from: US$69 per night for two people

Bariloche, Argentina

  • March avg high: 66F/19C
  • March avg low: 39F/4C

If you are flying in from a long distance to visit Buenos Aires then you’ll probably also want to include a side trip to Bariloche. This is a mountain resort that is popular all year round since the water activities morph into ice and snow activities in the winter (June through August). March is actually a shoulder-season month here, so room rates will be even lower than they are in summer and winter.Bariloche

Bariloche is also unusual in that it was once a German community and there are still many chocolate shops around town as a reminder. The value here is excellent and it will provide a nice contrast from your other stops in South America.

You might also consider including Mendoza on your trip, which is the main wine region of Argentina, and also good value.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

  • March avg high: 90F/32C
  • March avg low: 73F/23C
  • March avg precip: 5.1″/12.8cm

With Carnival having taken place in mid to late February in 2012, March is a perfect time to hit Rio de Janeiro because the crowds have thinned out and the weather is a little more bearable as well. There will be some rain, but Rio is in the Tropics so it tends to come and go quickly, usually in the late afternoon.Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro has crept up in price in recent years so it’s not the bargain it once was. Budget travelers can still do well here if they stay inland from the beaches or even in the city center area, but those who want to participate in the good life in Copacabana and Ipanema most days will be paying more for it.

From November through March there are literally no European cities that could qualify as having “great weather,” except for the Canary Islands, mentioned just below. So during the winter Europe is all about cultural tourism, and lower hotel prices make it especially appealing for those who like to stretch their travel budgets and avoid crowds at the same time.

Not all warm weather, but where to go in Europe in March

Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

  • March avg high: 71F/22C
  • March avg low: 60F/16C
  • March avg precip: 1.1″/2.8cm

Tenerife is the most popular part of the Canary Islands (off the coast of Africa) for English-speaking tourists, but there are other options with similar weather and prices. It’s not as warm in March as most other places on this list, though at least it’s fast and cheap to reach by plane from Europe, which isn’t true of the others.

Compared to Europe this island is a relative bargain, which helps make it popular pretty much all year round. Needless to say, prices can range quite a bit from one part of the island to another so it’s good to stay somewhere central if possible so you have the most options for food and drink.

March is a good month for the northern and southern parts of Africa, which are where most of the popular destinations are anyway.

Cairo, Egypt

  • March avg high: 75F/24C
  • March avg low: 52F/11C
  • March avg precip: 0.2″/0.5cm

March is part of the sweet period in Cairo where it’s nicely warm but still not overwhelmingly hot. With so many things to see in the outdoors in Cairo you are much better off avoiding the summer heat. Even as part of the high season for hotels, Cairo is incredibly cheap by most standards so you can find a great bargain any time of year.

When Egypt is struggling to attract tourists you might find that you can get a fantastic deal at a 3- or 4-star hotel, since they tend to lower prices when demand is weak while the cheaper places generally hold steady. Food tends to be very cheap in Cairo as well, as long as you avoid the restaurants in those fancy hotels.

Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt

  • March average high: 77°F/25°C
  • March average low: 61°F/16°C
  • March avg precip: 0.0″/0.0cm

March tends to be an in-between month in most of the world for weather, but in Sharm el-Sheikh it’s pretty much the annual sweet spot. Days are warm enough to enjoy sitting on the beach, but they are still not too hot and the evenings are pleasant as well.SharmelSheikh

Many people add a trip to Sharm el-Sheikh to a visit to Cairo, but more people are just skipping the chaos of Cairo and coming here instead. This is an area that is known for amazing value beach resorts along with diving and other activities. You won’t find a better beach hotel deal anywhere.

Marrakech, Morocco

  • March avg high: 72F/22C
  • March avg low: 49F/9C
  • March avg precip: 1.5″/3.8cm

It may still be a bit chilly in Marrekech during March so it’s not really ideal for those who are absolutely fed up with snow and freezing temperatures, but at least it’ll be pleasant here. Fez tends to be a bit cooler year round and a bit cheaper as well, though March may be a bit too early for that city if you need warm weather.

There are amazing numbers of hotels in Marrakech and it’s good to be aware that the bottom price level will usually be for something that is very shabby by European standards so many will want to pay a bit more for something nicer. Still, things tend to be cheap in all of Morocco so it’s a good overall destination.

Cape Town, South Africa

  • March avg high: 78F/26C
  • March avg low: 58F/14C
  • March avg precip: 0.8″/2.0cm

March is yet another very dry month in Cape Town, and temperatures tend to be pretty much perfect all day and all night as well, even for the beach. The high season hotel prices have eased off a bit so this is a perfect time to enjoy the best possible weather without having to pay the highest prices for it.

Cape Town is relatively cheap once you get there, so the main problem for most people is that it’s quite expensive to fly in. Since most people coming from longer distances tend to combine Cape Town with a safari or other activities then the airfare can still be worthwhile for a longer visit, even if it’s too expensive to just pop down for a few days.

March is a good month to visit many parts of Asia, although some cities like Bangkok, Saigon, and Siem Reap are already too hot during the day for most people.

Boracay Island, Philippines

  • March average high: 86°F/30°C
  • March average low: 76°F/24°C
  • March avg precip: 1.8″/4.5cm

You may not have heard of Boracay Island in the Philippines yet, and there are plenty of people who’d rather keep in that way. This small resort island feels like Phuket might have 30 years ago, where pretty much the only way to get around is to saunter along the sand path along White Beach. This place feels modern and there are a few chain restaurants, but generally this island feels far more relaxed and old school than the famous beach resorts in Asia.BoracayIsland

One thing that Boracay Island lacks is super-cheap hotels, but many people prefer to NOT have the backpacker crowd mixed in. Still, hotel value is excellent, especially considering that pretty much every hotel on the island is within a 2-minute walk of the sand, or it’s up in the hills with gorgeous views. Those looking for a new place to relax in March should consider Boracay, at least until it really catches on in a few years.

Pokhara, Nepal

  • March avg high: 72F/22C
  • March avg low: 50F/10C
  • March avg precip: 1.2″/3.0cm

It’s still a bit cool in Pokhara, especially toward the beginning of March, but at least it’s very dry, and that is a big key here. This is the trekking capital of the world so you’d rather have cooler days as long as they are clear and dry.

Hotels in Pokhara are incredibly cheap by most standards, and they’ve built so many new ones that prices are likely to stay low for years to come. Food and drinks are also very good deals here so it’s a great place to chill out for a while. The trekking tours can be expensive, however, so if you want to go on multi-day trips with guides you are going to spend a decent chunk of money compared to just staying in town.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

  • March avg high: 95F/35C
  • March avg low: 65F/18C
  • March avg precip: 0.5″/1.3cm

It’s good to consider that April is the hottest month of the year in most of Southeast Asia so March is already pretty scorching. Fortunately, Chiang Mai is one of the cooler cities in the region, especially in the evenings, so it’s still quite nice and bearable this month. Hotels are still in high season, but the prices here are fantastic even then so there is no point in trying to save money by going when it’s hellishly hot instead.

Chiang Mai is one of the world’s great budget destinations, especially with its hotels but also with its food, drinks, and shopping. It’s very popular for those spending a month or more in the region because it’s much less hectic than Bangkok or other big cities while being cheaper as well.

Goa, India

  • March avg high: 90F/32C
  • March avg low: 74F/23C
  • March avg precip: 0.0″/0.0cm

The difficult part of Goa is that it’s quite remote for most people so it’s not the sort of place you can go for a long weekend. For that reason this Indian state tends to be very popular for longer trips of a couple weeks or more. The weather is really ideal in Goa during March, though it probably means you’ll want a place with air conditioning rather than just a fan.

Some cities, such as Anjuna and Vagator, are better for the budget crowd and the nightlife crowd, while other beaches further south specialize more in package hotels in the mid range. You can get by on very little in this area if you need to, but paying more will often get you much better quality that’s worth it.

Luang Prabang, Laos

  • March avg high: 92F/33C
  • March avg low: 64F/18C
  • March avg precip: 1.3″/3.3cm

Similar in some ways to Chiang Mai mentioned above, Luang Prabang at least has cooler evenings through this period of the year so it’s still quite nice to visit in March. The key is to do your sightseeing as early as possible and then relax for most of the afternoon.

March is still part of the high season for hotels in Luang Prabang, and accommodation here isn’t as cheap as it is in many other tourist cities in the region, but it’s still quite cheap by most other standards. Affordable food and drink are also easy to find if you look around a bit, so don’t just go into the first place you see if you are trying to save money here.

  • 3-star hotels from: US$38 per night for two people

Phuket, Thailand

  • March avg high: 92F/33C
  • March avg low: 76F/24C
  • March avg precip: 1.9″/4.8cm

It’s getting quite hot in March in Phuket, but since it’s almost exclusively a beach destination it is still worthy of consideration. In fact, all of the islands in Thailand can be quite nice to visit in March, with Phuket being the most expensive of them. The crowds are thinning out after February so hotel prices are coming down a bit as well.

Phuket is quite a large island with many different beaches on its edges, most of which are quite expensive and lined with posh resorts, so if you are on a low budget you are going to have to choose a beach carefully or even stay in Phuket Town, which is inland. Still, food and drink prices are quite low and it’s a fun place if you find the right area for your style.

 Hong Kong

  • March avg high: 71F/22C
  • March avg low: 62F/17C
  • March avg precip: 2.8″/7.0cm

Hong Kong is still fairly cool in March, but at least it’s mostly dry, so it’s a good time to visit before the summer rainy season can be problematic. This is mostly an indoor city anyway and the evenings are very mild so this is an ideal month to come and enjoy the restaurants, nightlife and shopping in this unique city.Hong Kong

Hotels in Hong Kong have fairly steady prices throughout the year, and the hostels are generally terrible, so finding a cheap hotel isn’t too easy. Still, compared to most of the rest of the world Hong Kong is fairly cheap and it’s a fascinating place to visit, at least once in your life.

Middle East

March is cool and even a bit rainy in most of the Middle East. An exception is Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which both have perfect sunny weather. However, they don’t make this list because they aren’t really cheap enough for the cut.
