Oryx presents its insiders tips for places to visit in September.


In many parts of the world, tourist crowds begin easing off in September. Make the most of a tranquil Kerala experience in India, a range of cultural and street festivals in New York, and a quieter, cooler Venice.

Experience tranquil India

The monsoon season in India comes to an end in September, so while you may still get wet, it does not necessarily mean endless days of torrential rain. Enjoy the cooler weather and lower hotel prices before the tourist rush begins in October. Here, the monsoon is seen as a life-giver, and in Kerala, in the south of the country, it is regarded as the best time to take an Ayurvedic massage. Complete the tranquil Kerala experience with a relaxing backwater houseboat trip. If you are visiting the northern parts of India, take a Golden Triangle tour covering Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur.

Cultural cool in New York

While theres no right and wrong time to visit the city that never sleeps, New Yorks weather is ideal in September as the high temperatures of mid-summer are dropping, yet its still a few months away from the cold winter. As well as the usual tourist spots, visitors to the city in September can look forward to several big annual events.

Venice in Autumn

In September, the tourist crowds of summer are dispersing in Venice and locals are back to school and work, meaning the city is easier to enjoy. However, there is still a buzz in the air with two big September events: the annual Venice Film Festival and the Regata Storica, Venice’s biggest boat-racing event of the year.


Venice, Italy
Distance: 4,142 km
