You want to do a beach vacation or be in the sun? You'll find your best travel destination in one of the following lists: Beach Vacation in July | Where's hot in July? | Warm Destinations in Europe

Holidays in European countries

July's weather is still warm in most European countries. Compared to many destinations, holidays in Europe are still relatively inexpensive, but offer significantly higher air and water temperatures at the best travel season.

Summer in Kos

Greece with its countless islands lures with average day temperatures of over 30 °C and refreshing water, which is about 25 °C warm. In addition, July is one of the months with the lowest rainfall in Greece. Very similar climatic conditions can be found in Spain, e.g. on the well-known holiday islands Mallorca. This is not only popular with young party holidaymakers, but is increasingly establishing itself as a "serious" destination with great scenery and culinary highlights such as the many tapas bars.

Still faster to reach is the Côte d'Azur in France. With average daytime temperatures below 30 °C and about 23 °C warm water, the south of France is a perfect destination for July with very little rainfall.

Other holiday destinations in Europe whose best travel time is in July are Italy, Croatia, Holland and Bulgaria ( Sunny Beach and Golden Sands).

Destinations for July in Asia

Marmaris (Turkey)

Many Asian tourist hotspots such as Dubai have extremely high temperatures in July, making them among the best destinations for midsummer. The Turkish Aegean or the coastal town Marmaris is recommended for the July vacation. Here, too, you must be prepared for average daytime temperatures of 35 °C, but can refresh yourself in the water at a pleasant 24 °C. With an average of 14 hours of sunshine per day you have enough time to enjoy the sweet life.

In addition, we would like to recommend a few more unusual destinations for July. How about a holiday in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur? With average daytime temperatures just over 30 °C you can visit the famous Petronas Towers, get to know the street cuisine or visit the Batu Caves with the Hindu temples.

You can connect your stay in Kuala Lumpur with a visit to the neighboring metropolis Singapore. Under similar climatic conditions you can visit the world-famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel, admire the skyline from the Singapore Flyer or make a day trip to the Universal Studios on the pleasure island Sentosa.

How about exploring the Land of the Rising Sun on your next July vacation? Japan's capital Tokyo reaches average daily temperatures of just under 30 °C in July. There are also some beautiful beaches where you can enjoy yourself at a water temperature of 23 °C. There are also many places of interest, such as a number of temples and the Tokyo Tower.

Russia is certainly not at the top of everyone's list of popular destinations. However, the country offers an incredible variety of landscapes, sights and people due to its unbelievable size. We would like to recommend a visit to the capital Moscow. With average daytime temperatures of just under 25 °C, July is just the right month to get to know the Kremlin, Red Square and Co.

Where to go in Africa?

It's gonna be very warm in July in North Africa. One of the most popular destinations is Hurghada in Egypt. At high summer air temperatures and water temperatures of 30 °C, bathing is naturally at the top of the TODO list. There are also organized diving and snorkeling trips to observe the wildlife. Those who do not necessarily have it with the water might get their money's worth on a desert safari.

Djerba, Tunisia

If you don't want it to be that hot, Djerba in Tunisia might be the right choice for you. The daytime temperatures reach below 30 °C on average, the water is with 24 °C clearly more refreshing than in Egypt. In addition, July has almost no precipitation in Djerba. Twelve hours of sunshine a day provide enough time for further activities such as visiting one of the oldest synagogues in the world or the crocodile farm "Djerba Explorer Park".

Another recommendation for the African winter is Tanzania. Here the average day temperatures are around 25 °C - 28 °C, and the month of July has very little precipitation. Best conditions for a tour to Kilimanjaro, a visit to Ngorongoro Crater or a safari.

We would like to conclude the list of Africa recommendations with the island Madagascar. Depending on the region, day temperatures average 20 to 30 °C with very low precipitation values. Here especially animal lovers get their money's worth. Lemurs are Madagascar's national symbols and can be observed in the Lemur Park in Antananarivo, for example.

Holidays in July in America

Machu Picchu

In South America, July is the winter season. It is not as cold there as you might know it from Europe or the US East Coast, but it is not necessarily the best travel time for South American destinations though. We would like to recommend the Brazilian metropolis Rio de Janeiro. At a pleasant daytime temperature of 25 °C you can explore the Sugar Loaf, the Copacabana and the statue of Christ. Also the visit Peru in July with 20 °C - 30 °C offers good conditions to get to know the rainforest or the famous Macchu Pichu.

In the Caribbean, July falls in the rainy season on many of the islands and is not the preferred travel season. An exception is the small island Bonaire, here is to be counted also in July only with manageable precipitation.

July is the best time to travel to some destinations within the United States of America. It gets really warm in summer in New York City with average daytime temperatures of just under 30 °C. It is about cooler in California at this time, perfect for a beach holiday, a visit to the prison island Alcatraz or the Golden Gate Bridge.

World Famous Kailua Beach (Tony Shi)

Kailua Beach, Hawaii

You can also spend a nice summer holiday on Hawaii, with day temperatures of 30 °C and low rainfall. If you want to get to know the national parks Alaskas, July should also be your preferred travel month. Temperatures between 5 °C and 20 °C are significantly friendlier than in the freezing cold winter months.

You should also visit the friendly neighbors north of the USA during the summer months. No matter if Yukon, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland, the Rocky Mountains, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto or Montreal: The best travel time for Canada is definitely July.

On a boat trip you enjoy the amenities of a top-class hotel and wake up every morning in a new and exciting destination.
