If you want to escape the crowd when visiting this fun and heavenly destination, try to book a room in May or June. July and August are by far the busiest months in this destination.

Plus, you can always visit the pearl farms in Taha’a.
The Balkan gems are worth every penny.

What summer vacation destination top would be complete without Lisbon? There is no downside anybody can find when it comes to visiting Lisbon.

The nearby ocean will be waiting for you and your cocktails, day or night while enjoying some extraordinary weather and a well-deserved break from your daily concerns and matters. You will still have to deal with the masses. However, you can still find a secluded tapas or cocktail bar if you prefer your peace of mind a minute of silence. Book your accommodation in advance and you will certainly enjoy some great rates.
Of course, this is a cliché destination, already, but you just can’t miss this hot touristic spot. While the weather is a tad too hot during the summer, try to visit it at the end of August or beginning of September and you also tackle that hard task of avoiding the crowds. The sea is warmer, the skies are blue, the sand still warm and the evenings will call for an extra thin layer of clothing. You have everything you need for quite of a unique experience, from taverns and terraces to unique bars and restaurants and of course, the breath-taking view and architecture.
