Beach holidays in May
If you’ve been dreaming about visiting Barbados, May is a great time to go. At 30 degrees it’s seriously warm, but it’s not quite peak tourist season so you’ll have those dreamy Caribbean beaches almost to yourself. Another hot beach destination at this time of year Cancun. This Mexican city has gorgeous stretches of Caribbean coastline and an incredible nightlife. We can almost taste the frozen margaritas…
City break holidays in May
Visit Singapore in May and you’ll find temperatures are already well into the 30s.

By evening, tuck into chilli crab in one of the many excellent seafood restaurants. May is also an excellent time to visit Cairo. Delve into Egyptian history and take a sunrise camel ride out to the pyramids at Giza.
