Southern Cyprus in October is still warm enough for a beach holiday, with temperatures around 24 degrees and minimal rain.

Children will love the Aqua Park and Marine World in Ayia Napa, the big Watermania waterpark in Limassol, the Camel Park near Larnaca or the Zoo and Bird Park in Paphos. Boat trips abound from the marinas at Larnaca and Limassol and the harbour at Paphos, not to mention the wealth of historic sights that can be seen just about everywhere.

October is the perfect time of year to go trekking in Nepal; it is the start of the dry season, has warm daytime temperatures for comfortable walking and clear skies to enjoy the best of the mountain views. Trekking is not just for the super fit and experienced mountaineers, although there are, of course, plenty of remote regions and high passes for those seeking a challenge. But if camping and back-packing aren't your style, there are also tours of Nepal which give you the opportunity to stay in hotels and still admire spectacular views of the Annapurna and Himalayan mountain ranges and, maybe take a safari in Chitwan National Park, visit the scenic Phewa Lake and town of Pokhara, the medieval city of Bhaktapur and the city sights of Kathmandu, such as the Buddha Stuppa, the beautiful Garden of Dreams and the spectacular palaces and temples around Durbar Square.
