Where to go on holiday in March 2022
Whistler Canada
Getty Images 2. Whistler, CanadaTemperature: 7°C high; –2°C lowSeason: Ski season; springTravel time from UK: 9 hours 30 minutesTime difference: GMT –8The granddaddy of North American ski resorts does winter sports on a supersized scale. Up in the awe-inspiring Pacific Ranges above Vancouver, Whistler gets phenomenal snow in a winter season that runs November–May. The best month of all is March when you can expect bluebird powder days; it’s sunnier yet there’s still heavy snowfall, slopes and lifts are less busy, and rates are cheaper.Sustainable travel tip: In a resort that has committed to becoming carbon-neutral (including building a hydro plant to produce enough energy to power ski lifts, restaurants and snow cannons), there are a whole bunch of restaurants run with a sustainability ethos. Fine-dining Alta Bistro is perhaps the smartest of them, and the greenest: as well as all-seasonal, all-local ingredients, everything is ethically sourced, bought from nearby farms and makers, right down to the sustainably farmed wine. Plus, all organic waste gets composted at a local farm and they use renewable hydroelectric power.Where to stay: Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler is the starriest hotel in town. Alternatively, and for the accomplished skier, Mabeyski arranges amazing off-the-beaten-piste winter adventures in British Columbia, including heliskiing and stays at spoiling lodges.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM

Getty Images3. Cayman IslandsTemperature: 29°C high; 22°C lowSeason: DryTravel time from UK: 12 hours 45 minutes directTime difference: GMT -5At last, there’s a compelling reason to choose this archipelago over other Caribbean islands. Palm Heights is the Caymans’ first smart all-suite boutique hotel, and something entirely different for the Caribbean. Design is 1970s retro-Tropicana – bold in orange, tan and sunshine yellow, with an eclectic mix of vintage classic furniture and contemporary art. There’s a huge wellness centre with visiting athletes, superb restaurants headed up by New York chefs, and a diverse crowd of islanders as well as guests. The location is one of the best in the Caribbean, on icing-sugar Seven Mile Beach. March is the best month to go to the Cayman Islands – for weather, for watersports, and lower rates and fewer tourists between school holidays.Sustainable travel tip: Stingrays flock to a certain sandbar in the lagoon on Grand Cayman to be fed – if that feels too invasive, find a captain who’ll take you snorkelling on the reef where you can see them swimming more naturally. Cayman Yacht Charters will take you wherever you want.Where to stay: Take any of the 50 suites at Palm Heights – all are spacious, with separate living rooms, tiled breakfast/cocktail bars, and balconies overlooking the sea.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COMRead our full review on Palm Heights, the Cayman Island’s newest design-centric hotspot
  • View of the cityscape of Essaouira in Morocco
    Getty Images 4. Essaouira, MoroccoTemperature: 20°C high; 14°C lowSeason: SpringTravel time from UK: 3 hours 40 minutes (direct)Time difference:  GMT +1A couple of hours’ drive to the coast from Marrakech brings you to the cute seaside town of Essaouira, painted every shade of blue. Its Atlantic breakers and wide sandy stretches lure surfers and its bohemian vibe bring hippies. Plus, now its collection of cool galleries, boutiques and chic little places to stay and eat makes it a destination in its own right, whether for an early spring beach break or a Moroccan escape a little off the well-worn path.Sustainable travel tip: In a country that has outlawed plastic bags, Essaouira is one of the most environmentally-aware destinations, and there’s no shortage of cafés championing local fishermen and farmers and supporting the community. Try meat-free, plastic-free, veggie and organic Mandala Brunch Society. Make pursuits carbon neutral: hire surfboards, SUPs, and bikes to explore.Where to stay: On the edge of the Medina, Villa Maroc is a charming riad made up of four 18th-century houses, with 21 uniquely decorated rooms and suites (including a couple of two-bedroom family suites).BOOK YOUR STAY: VILLA-MAROC

Getty Images 5. South-East SicilyTemperature: 18°C high; 9°C lowSeason: SpringTravel time from UK: 3 hoursTime difference: GMT +1If you’re seeking the warmest place in Italy in March, look to southeast Sicily. This eternally awe-inspiring island has Europe’s sunniest city in modern Catania and Europe’s hottest spot in ancient Syracuse. While there’s little chance of a heatwave in March, you’ll still get eight hours of sunshine a day, and the temperate Mediterranean spring climate is ideal for exploring the area’s baroque cities – Modica, Ragusa, Noto – and Greek and Roman remains. On warmer days, the dunes and lagoons of Vendicari Nature Reserve harbour some of the best (and quietest) beaches in all of Italy, along with a great diversity of birdlife returning from Africa in springtime.Sustainable travel tip: Sicily could quite happily be self-sufficient – its produce is very likely the best you’ll taste anywhere, as any Sicilian will vehemently attest. Agroturismi are abundant; I Carusi, for instance, is an organic working farm near Noto and Vendicari which practices zero-kilometre cooking using its delicious homegrown ingredients.Where to stay: In Ortigia, Hotel Gutowski is artful, welcoming and extraordinarily good value (doubles from £69). On the slopes of Etna outside Catania, shell-pink Monaci delle Terre Nere must be one of the most heart-stirringly romantic places to stay in Sicily.

Madrid Spain
Getty Images6. Madrid, SpainTemperature: 16°C high; 6°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 2 hours 25 minutesTime difference: GMT +1Barcelona’s big sister sheds her winter skin in March. When the clocks go forward, as if by magic a wave of warmth sweeps the city and loosens up its reserved exterior. Madrid’s expansive parks burst into bloom and locals tumble out onto the streets to sip caipirinhas and dance till dawn. Temperatures stay around 20ºC (far more gentle than the capital’s sizzling summers), meaning you can explore its world-class galleries, belle-époque mansions and designer boutiques without breaking a sweat. There’s great traditional tapas to be had, but leave time to try the city’s newer breed of stylish gastrobars. Just don’t plan anything more than a siesta afterwards.Sustainable travel tip: There are a couple of ways to get to Madrid by train. Option 1: depart London on the Eurostar in the evening and spend the night in Paris, before catching the high-speed TGV to Barcelona (journey time: 6.5 hours), followed by an AVE Class 103 high-speed train to Madrid (journey time: just under three hours). Option 2: the same route, but departing London in the morning and staying overnight in Barcelona. Either way, it’s more city break for your buck.Where to stay: Family-owned 7 Islas – half hotel, half gallery with polished-concrete floors and whitewashed walls.

The Maldives
7. The MaldivesTemperature: 30°C high; 27°C lowSeason: dryTravel time from UK: from 10 hoursTime difference: GMT +4Night-snorkelling, island-hopping and the turquoise Indian Ocean lapping onto ice-white shores… when it comes to the Maldives the travel clichés flow as freely as the cocktails. While the island nation is idyllic year-round, March is a great time to spot manta rays and sharks or simply relish the temperate 30ºC days in a private beach hut. It’s dreamy for the kids too – see our pick of the best family hotels in the Maldives. One of our favourites is Soneva Fushi with its technology-free zone called The Den, complete with tunnels, treasure maps and a pirate ship built for would-be Peter Pans and Wendys.Sustainable travel tip: Luxury retreats don’t tend to be the most sustainable of businesses, and even less so in the Maldives, where fresh water and waste management will always be challenges, and private flights and imported food are the norm. But some spots are giving it a go: Kudadoo Private Island runs entirely on solar power; Kuramathi Island Resort produces 70 per cent of its own herbs and salads in an onsite hydroponic garden; and Soneva Fushi is carbon-neutral and 90 per cent waste-free, with onsite plastic and glass recycling and composting.Where to stay: Check into Gili Lankanfushi, a stylish and sustainable hangout with classic overwater villas and a brilliant spa. For more recommendations, read our guide to the best hotels in the Maldives. BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
  • Ravello Amalfi Coast Sorrento
    Getty Images8. Sorrento, ItalyTemperature: 19°C high; 13°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 2 hours 35 minutesTime difference: GMT +1Nothing brings a spring to the step quite like the sight of Italy’s glorious Amalfi coast. Particularly in March, when its vertiginous twists are bathed in a daily average eight hours of sun. Cliffs plunge into the Tyrrhenian Sea, topped with grand palazzos and smart hotels. Narrow, Roman lanes are stuffed with limoncello stalls flogging the boozy spoils of Sorrento’s famous fruit. Its snoozy air and pastel-coloured houses are pure Italian cinema: you might even swear you’ve seen a young Sophia Loren looking impossibly saucy by the quay. Do as the Italians do and spend the lazy, romantic days enjoying a long aperitivo. Don’t miss fresh fritto misto at Marina Grande, the town’s old fishing harbour, or Michelin-starred Il Buco in the cellars of an old monastery, where chef Peppe Aversa serves seasonal ingredients under a stone-hewn, vaulted ceiling. The sweet life, indeed.Sustainable travel tip: Agriturismos blend the Amalfi Coast’s lifelines of tourism and tradition, preserving rural communities and beneficial farming practices (which stem landslides and flooding), while giving visitors an authentic taste of country life. Up in the hills of the Sorrentine Peninsula, Antico Casale, a family-run farm overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, offers four bright, airy guest-rooms amid lemon orchards and olive groves, and a true farm-to-table restaurant.Where to stay: Maison la Minervetta is a five-storey, upside-down hotel built into the cliff-side above Sorrento’s pretty Marina Grande.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Connemara Co Galway Ireland
Getty Images9. IrelandTemperature: 12°C high; 8°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 1 hour 5 minutesTime difference: GMT +0The country is one of those rare places that fully lives up to its reputation: incredibly green, windswept, raucous, and – more often than not – pelted by rain. What better time to visit than during the month that features an ode to St Patrick, the ‘Apostle of Ireland’? Donegal’s wild beaches and the looming Cliffs of Moher are movie-beautiful, and the elemental, towering sea crag of Kerry’s Skellig Michael was picked for a pivotal role in Star Wars. There’s nowhere cosier for a pint than the brightly painted pubs of Galway (wood-panelled Tigh Neachtain’s is a favourite), best paired with the riverside city’s famous oysters. In Dublin, the cobbled, Georgian capital, the docklands have lately gone from run-down to tech hub: the so-called Silicon Docks are now home to Facebook, Google and Airbnb HQs. The rooftop bar at the area’s Marker Hotel is where young Dublin comes for après-coding.Sustainable travel tip: When in Dublin, consider the Iveagh Garden Hotel, which sources its entire energy supply from the underground Swan River. The handsome Georgian-style building is all mod cons inside, and the onsite Elle’s Bar has a wide-ranging gin collection, too.Where to stay: At part 13th-century castle, part French-inspired château Ashford Castle in County Mayo, one of our picks for the best hotels in Ireland.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Delhi India
Getty Images10. Delhi, IndiaTemperature: 30°C high; 16°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 9 hours 20 minutesTime difference: GMT +4.30Holi, the festival of colours, might now attract as many Hackney Instagrammers as devout Hindus, but the spring celebrations are, of course, at their best and brightest in India. Come March, the country’s capital erupts in a riot of rainbow powder, as Holi parties across the city pop with DJs, street food and clothes-ruining antics. After several showers, be sure to explore the city’s dichotomies: grand temples and dusty bazaars in Old Delhi, followed by New Delhi’s colonial pomp and G&Ts. For a taste of modern India, Hauz Khas Village (‘HKV’ to trendy young Delhiites) is a pedestrian-friendly hub of galleries, fashion boutiques, bars and bohemian cafés.Sustainable travel tip: Don’t add to Delhi’s traffic misery: take the Delhi Metro, which is clean, fast and well-connected (there are women-only carriages, too).Where to stay: Modern-day, opulent hangout The Leela Palace is made of white marble, with soaring ceilings and a rooftop pool.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Muttrah Corniche Muscat Oman
Getty Images11. OmanTemperature: 29°C high; 23°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 7 hours 30 minutesTime difference: GMT +3Natural and understated, Oman couldn’t be more different to its neighbour on the Arabian Peninsula, the UAE. Where the latter has built a playground of space-age skyscrapers and bling-bling beach clubs, Oman has the pristine, dolphin-filled fjords of the Musandam Peninsula, Wadi Shab’s emerald waterfalls and Salalah’s misty greenery – a quirky anomaly in a region known for barren ruggedness (thank the Khareef, Salalah’s very own monsoon). Even Oman’s port capital Muscat keeps it classy with a backdrop of craggy brown mountains and the majestic, sandstone Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Not that Oman can’t do luxury – it’s just of a more low-key sort. See the Omani-style villas of ultra-secluded Six Senses Zighy Bay (where guests can paraglide into the hotel), or Anantara’s canyon-edge village in the remote Hajar Mountains. The perfect time to discover the Middle East’s unsung jewel? March falls neatly between the winter rush and stifling summer heat.Sustainable travel tip: Don’t live in the gilded cage of your hotel: get out into the real Oman and eat in its restaurants, drink in its cafés, haggle in its markets. The Omani community ought to benefit from your visit as much as international hotel brands.Where to stay: The Chedi in Muscat has intricately laid-out gardens, low-built villas and a private beach.

  • Valencia Spain
    Getty Images12. Valencia, SpainTemperature: 19°C high; 7°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 2 hours 25 minutesTime difference: GMT +1Spain’s third largest city celebrates spring in typically fiery Spanish style. Which is to say, it sets everything on fire. March’s week-long Las Fallas festival sees Valencia display a host of giant, satirical papier-mâché sculptures (often nodding to topical political scandals and celebrity meltdowns), before they’re paraded around town and spectacularly set ablaze on the final night. In the lead-up, the whole city’s a party: parades, music, ear-busting fireworks, plus the hipster Ruzafa district puts on its own dazzling festival of lights. Better still, this appealing cosmopolitan port city isn’t short of spectacles by day. Alongside almost 3km of beaches and a vibrant old town, there’s the awesome futuristic architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences, where buildings evoke the skeleton of a whale, a water lily, a giant eye and more. For more ideas, see our recommendations for things to do in Valencia.Sustainable travel tip: You can get from London to Barcelona by train within a day: take the Eurostar to Paris, followed by high-speed TGV through the gorgeous Rhône Valley and Pyrenees scenery to the Catalan capital (journey time: 6.5 hours). The next day, both Euromed and Talgo trains leave Barcelona for Valencia (journey time: around three hours).Where to stay: El 16 Ruzafa has five apartments in an early-20th-century modernist building.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Las Vegas USA
Getty Images13. Las Vegas, USATemperature: 22°C high; 4°C lowSeason: dryTravel time from UK: 10 hours 45 minutesTime difference: GMT -8Sin City isn’t subtle. But you might call it an interesting anthropological study. What happens when you build an entire city dedicated to hedonism? Everyone goes nuts. Look no further than the Strip, where even early mornings see punters stumbling giddily past a dancing fountain and lava-spewing volcano, toting half-yards of booze. But when not ogling the spectacle, the city’s chequered history makes for fascinating discoveries. The Mob Museum, in the old courthouse, is a thorough chronicling of the mafia here, while the Neon Museum shows off retro, rescued signs from the earliest hotels and casinos. The slightly seedy Atomic Liquors bar also claims a place in Vegas lore: from its rooftop, drinkers would watch mushroom clouds billow out of nearby atomic testing sites in the 1950s. March weather in Vegas is like a good UK summer day. But a day in Vegas is like nowhere else on Earth.Sustainable travel tip: As a holiday destination dedicated to excess, plopped in the middle of a desert, Vegas has unsurprisingly scant green credentials. The Strip, however, is super pedestrian-friendly, so the very least we can do here is walk. Bonus: The Deuce bus service operates a route between the Strip and Downtown 24 hours a day.Where to stay: At The Waldorf Astoria, a minimalist hotel with no gaming, whose LEED Gold status established it as one of the greenest hotels on the Strip.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Getty Images14. JordanTemperature: 24°C high; 13°C lowSeason: dryTravel time from UK: from 2 hours 30 minutesTime difference: GMT +2As well as being regarded as the Middle East’s most accessible country, Jordan just might be its most captivating. But then, it has many an unfair advantage. There’s the ancient, stone-carved city of Petra, a new wonder of the world; Jerash’s vast Greco-Roman ruins; the super-salty Dead Sea. Or joining a camel caravan to Wadi Rum, star of Lawrence of Arabia: a cinematic, rust-red desert valley dressed up with dramatic sandstone mountains and deep caverns. March is an excellent time to bound around. Daytime temperatures hang in the comfortable half of the 20s, while desert nights are warm enough for camping under the stars. See our guide to the best things to do in Jordan for more. Sustainable travel tip: Wadi Rum is home to various Bedouin communities, and many of them run the region’s desert tours and camps. Tourism is a huge source of income for them, and also gives you the chance to share in and preserve their lifestyle, which is fast vanishing in many parts of the Middle East.Where to stay: Four Seasons Hotel Amman, where a serene atmosphere is maintained by cool, calm neutrals and impeccable service.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Getty Images15. NepalTemperature: 24°C high; 8°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 12 hours 5 minutesTime difference: GMT +4.45There’s no better time than spring to experience Nepal’s Himalayan charms. Flowers are blooming in the high mountains, dry and clear weather shows off generous views, and the days are warm but not sticky. It’s ideal for trekkers, although you needn’t summit Everest for elevated adventure: the Annapurna range offers excellent hikes through lowland villages and around high, glacial lakes. After the wreckage wrought by the 2015 earthquake, cultural powerhouse Kathmandu is thoughtfully renovating its heritage buildings, and still offers enough traders and temples, fluttering prayer flags and grand palaces to intoxicate any traveller. March’s Holi festival paints the town red, blue, yellow, purple and green, too.Sustainable travel tip: Exploitation of porters is a huge problem in Nepal, so be sure to book with a reputable tour company that enforces weight restrictions, and provides porters with terrain- and weather-appropriate gear and shelter, and fair pay. And we all saw those crazy pictures of the queues to summit Everest, so consider an off-the-beaten-track trekking route for a unique and more peaceful and sustainable experience.Where to stay: Dwarika’s Hotel in Kathmandu has become the stuff of legend – or stay at younger sister Dwarika’s Resort, a spa on the ancient trade route to Tibet.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
  • Puerto Rico
    Getty Images16. Puerto RicoTemperature: 22°C high; 16°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 8 hours 58 minutesTime difference: GMT -5Kick off the month with a beach party on the shores of Puerto Rico. Only two hours from Miami, this Caribbean isle has long been the USA’s weekend playground. Expect a distinctly Latin flavour with a side of home comforts – Puerto Rico has the biggest shopping mall in the Caribbean and the largest virgin tropical rainforest. March is the best month to sample both sides of island life. The beaches lose their crowds and a light breeze rustles the palm trees, lifting the humidity and letting you sleep on the sand in Vieques. Those craving a faster pace can always go salsa dancing in Mayagüez, whale-watching in Rincón or wander the cobbled streets of old San Juan, Piña Colada in hand.Sustainable travel tip: Though visiting Puerto Rico for a carefree sun-and-sand holiday in the wake of Hurricane Maria might seem a little off-colour, most agree your tourist dollars are badly needed. So do some research and ensure those dollars make it into the hands of the local community. Spoon food tours give you a taste of Puerto Rico at family-run cafés and restaurants; Local Guest hooks you up with local entrepreneurs for culture- and nature-based expeditions (caving, pottery, bomba dancing); and, close to Vieques’s beautiful beaches, Puerto Rican-owned Finca Victoria is a sustainably minded boutique hotel offering yoga, farm-sourced breakfasts and organic locally made bath goodies.Where to stay: The Horned Dorset Primavera has Moorish interiors and a French-influenced restaurant.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Finca Malvasia
Ana Lui17. Canary IslandsTemperature: 21°C high; 15°C lowSeason: springTravel time from UK: 4 hours 6 minutesTime difference: GMT +0Spain’s tiny golden islands off the coast of North Africa are heavenly in early spring. The days are getting longer and sunnier and there’s no sign of the peak-season crowds. We’re excited by Lanzarote’s beautiful beaches, cool surf scene and amazing places to stay. We’re captivated by Tenerife’s unexpected lunar landscapes and intrigued by the unsung Canaries: a whistle-stop tour could take you through Santa Cruz de la Palma’s whitewashed Renaissance palaces, La Gomera’s plunging ravines and Fuencaliente’s sleepy volcanic craters bathed in early morning mist. To help plan your trip, see our guide to the best Canary Islands to visit.Sustainable travel tip: Ditching the all-inclusives and going small and local is better for the community, the environment and your holiday, too. Try the cottages on family-owned working vineyard Finca Malvasia in Lanzarote; or Tenerife’s gorgeous Garachico, a mercifully under-visited seaside village.Where to stay: For an unusual stay, book still-functioning 18th-century lighthouse Faro Punta Cumplida on the rugged north-east of La Palma.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Zebras at Sanbona Little Karoo
David Crookes18. South AfricaTemperature: 27°C high; 21°C lowSeason: dryTravel time from UK: 10 hours 45 minutesTime difference: GMT +1For a high-octane safari adventure look to the tip of this mighty continent. South Africa has 19 national parks and the tail-end of wet season means fewer tour groups and lower costs if you can tolerate the odd afternoon shower. If you’re hungry to see the big five, head to Kruger National Park in the north-east, while those yearning for Out of Africa-style romance should travel south to the lush Garden Route to track game on horseback. Or if you don’t want to stray too far from the city, Little Karoo is the closest safari to Cape Town. When you’re done, dust off at one of Cape Town’s smartest hotels: the southern capital is at its best in March, mostly free of visitors and basking in the sun.Sustainable travel tip: South Africa was the first country in the world to certify tourist products – hotels, tours, etc – as Fair Trade. And while that doesn’t necessarily mean environmentally sound credentials, it does mean fair wages and working conditions for local people, and fair sourcing of products. Find out more here.Where to stay: At Prince Albert Country Stay, a charming hotel in the Karoo attached to a café and antiques store.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Sayulita West Coast of Mexico
Kalle Gustafsson19. Mexico’s West CoastTemperature: 30°C high; 22°C lowSeason: dryTravel time from UK: 12 hours 15 minutesTime difference: GMT -6Mexico’s Pacific coast transplants Californian cool to a warmer climate with bigger waves – no wonder Hollywood heavyweights jet down to graze by the pool in Cabo. March is a fantastic time to visit, with prime conditions for whale-watching in Baja California, virtually no rain and rising temperatures. Check in to Cabo’s One&Only Palmilla to star-spot over ceviche but leave a few days to enjoy the simpler pleasures of the mainland. Chilled-out Sayulita draws travellers with its neon-bright shopfronts and wild beaches. Further south in Oaxaca, you’ll find Puerto Escondido, a beach town where you can surf all day, party all night and browse contemporary art installations the morning after. If you fancy branching out during your stay, click here to see the hottest day-trips from Sayulita.Sustainable travel tip: Cabo’s popularity is, inevitably, a double-edged sword: water-supply problems, irresponsible wildlife encounters and wasteful hotels all numbering among the cons. For minimum-impact adventures, check out Baja Expeditions, which ensures you swim with whale sharks and snorkel with sea lions ethically; join one of their whale shark research trips and your ticket fee is fed directly back into the research.Where to stay: One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos has stone floors, intricately woven fabrics and pulls in an A-List crowd of guests.

  • The Philippines
    Getty Images20. The PhilippinesTemperature: 34°C high; 21°C lowSeason: dryTravel time from UK: 14 hours 7 minutesTime difference: GMT +7This emerald archipelago is the perfect spot for unwinding after a long winter. A thatch-roofed villa in a private island resort is the ideal base from which to discover the winding rice terraces, quaint villages and coral reefs of the Philippines. In March the heat is more bearable on the beaches and in the bustling capital Manila. But those itching to get their feet wet should head to the Palawan islands – the real inspiration for Alex Garland’s The Beach. Take a dip in a natural lagoon, or doze under the tilting coconut trees.Sustainable travel tip: There’s concern Palawan could eventually turn into the next Boracay, the Philippine island that became so overtouristed, the government had to close it for six months for ‘repair’. Help that not happen by staying in hotels that prioritise sustainability: the four private islands owned by El Nido Resorts, for example, have implemented water- and energy-conservation programmes, only offer low-impact activities (no jet-skis), and source local produce for the kitchen.Where to stay: Harana Surf in Siargao draws a surfer-yogi crowd, or for something smarter try Nay Palad Hideaway, which has a swimming pontoon off the beach.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM
Chamonix France

Chamonix, FranceTemperature: 6°C high; 1°C lowSeason: winterTravel time from UK: 1 hour 40 minutesTime difference: GMT +1Set on a mountainside below Mont Blanc, Chamonix has bags of storybook appeal: churches sparkle under a frosting of snow, the windows of picturesque chalets glow with firelight, and shimmering pine trees look as if they’ve been plucked straight off a Christmas card. By March the serious skiers have left to find cooler climes and the weather is warm enough for lunching al fresco. You can still catch the last of the winter snow and accommodation is easier to find, whether you’re after a romantic cabin for two or a lodge big enough for a post-piste party.Sustainable travel tip: Sadly, Eurostar’s seasonal Ski Train doesn’t serve Chamonix, but time it right and you can still chug from London to this French fancy in less than half a day. After taking the Eurostar to Paris, catch a high-speed TGV to Bellegarde, at which you’ll need to hop off and change trains for Chamonix. –The whole journey from Paris, transfer included, clocks in at less than five hours. If you don’t fancy figuring it all out yourself, Railbookers can sort the logistics.Where to stay: Retro Americana RockyPop is a great affordable option with fun communal areas (think table football, table tennis, games consoles, live music) and an excellent in-house ski rental shop.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM

BermudaTemperature: 21°C high; 16°C lowSeason: winterTravel time from UK: 7 hours 30 minutesTime difference: GMT -4Castaways in the 17th century were the first to see the startling beauty of this undiscovered island. Bermuda hasn’t changed much since then with its pristine rose-pink sands and fiercely loyal locals who have a disdain for flashy resorts. Visit in March before the late spring price spike for warm waters and seven hours of daily sunshine. Watching a rosy sunset from the docks of the capital Hamilton, you’ll feel as if you’ve accidentally stumbled on paradise.Sustainable travel tip: Fun fact: tourists aren’t allowed to rent cars in Bermuda, given the impact it could have on this tiny territory’s infrastructure (it measures just 20 miles by two miles). Forget mopeds and rent a two-seater electric mini car instead: several companies offer fleets of these compact, eco-friendly vehicles. Check out this post for more on the options.Where to stay: At the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, which has sat on the harbour of Bermuda’s capital since the late 19th century.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COM

Fez, MoroccoTemperature: 21°C high; 8°C lowSeason: winterTravel time from UK: 3 hours 10 minutesTime difference: GMT +0Bigger than Marrakech, the imperial Moroccan city of Fez also comes first for authentic charm. Its eighth-century medina is a chaotic trip back in time to fragrant tanneries and wizened merchants; an extraordinary restoration project has lately breathed new life into old buildings. Less of a tourist circus than its medieval rival, Fez is nevertheless catching up in the sophistication stakes. Parisian designer Christophe Pillet’s 50-bedroom, stone-clad Sahrai hotel has a covetable rooftop bar and Givenchy spa, while Dar Arsama riad is a chic blend of contemporary and traditional, hung with the curious art of Spanish owner Violeta Caldrés. Exciting chefs are also bringing modernity to the medina: El Bulli, Noma and French Laundry alum Najat Kaanache applies haute techniques to local-market finds at her intimate new restaurant Nur.Sustainable travel tip: Fez by train? Absolutely! Well, OK, with a cheeky ferry on the way. Take the Eurostar to Paris, high-speed TGV to Barcelona, high-speed AVE to Algeciras, ferry to Tangier, and then, finally, a high-speed train to Fez. If you don’t fancy organising it yourself, Railbookers can do the hard work.Where to stay: Sprawling Les Jardin des Biehn was once the summer palace of a pasha, made up of several petite riads and lovely gardens.BOOK YOUR STAY: BOOKING.COMThese are the best riads and restaurants in the medina, Fez
  • Boats In Ha Long Bay Vietnam

VietnamTemperature: 23°C high; 18°C lowSeason: dryTravel time from UK: 11 hours 15 minutesTime difference: GMT +6There’s no better time to scale the length and breadth of this compelling country. Vietnam’s usually sticky humidity vanishes in March and dazzling sunshine heralds the driest month of the year. It’s the ideal time to laze on the southern beaches but also optimum weather for trekking the craggy northern mountains. It’s also still shoulder season, meaning you can see much more for less.
