August holiday destination -Berlin, Germany

Travel in August and you’ll score its lowest hotel rates of the year—but it’s a mystery why. Berlin’s culture calendar saves its best for the summer, and this month is no exception, welcoming the city’s beloved International Beer Festival as well as Dance in August, one of Europe’s most important contemporary dance festivals. On the food front, local restaurants have recently upped their game, with international chefs serving up innovative fare in artsy new outposts, such as the Vietnamese-influenced Madame Ngo, the high-society hangout Le Petit Royal, and Louis Pretty, known for its German twists on American Jewish deli staples.

August holiday is high season in the Galápagos, one of the best places to travel in 2016, when the weather has cooled down and summer’s undercurrents have brought nutrients to the water’s surface—spawning a feeding frenzy for local wildlife. The biodiversity here is unparalleled: spot Minke and Sperm whales off Isabella Island, sea lions and their pups around San Cristobal and the Plazas, giant tortoises on Santa Cruz, Galápagos penguins on Fernandina, and waved albatross adolescents adjusting to life on their own on the island of Espanola. Weeklong cruises make the most of this trip of your lifetime with stops at smaller islands and onboard naturalists ready to unleash their knowledge.

August holiday destination-Vancouver, British Columbia

Framed by snowcapped peaks, evergreen forests, and the tranquil Pacific Ocean, this boomtown is Canada’s jewel of the Pacific Northwest, a hub for eco-friendly hotels, restaurants serving the freshest seafood and Asian fusion, an ever-strong cocktail culture, and endless outdoor pursuits. Its ideal position on the western coast makes summer days more crisp and pleasant than hot and sticky. Spend time exploring the city’s shores by kayak, hiking mountain trails, browsing modern art galleries—or better yet, make it a starting point on an odyssey across the country.I would add a perfect place for your august holiday

August holiday destination-Ljubljana, Slovenia

Slovenia’s capital is a time capsule into Eastern Europe of old, home to a 9th-century castle rebuilt in the 16th, majestic palazzos turned hotels, aging squares, and winding sidewalks connecting by stone bridges. This year, it became an official European Green Capital: imagine a downtown free of cars (instead, bikes everywhere) and more trees than you’d expect from the largest city in the country, found everywhere from Tivoli Park to its two-century-old botanical gardens. A food movement has emerged here, focused on molecular cuisine born out of traditional Slovenian dishes. You’ll find it at Špajza, whose bistro fare draws from family recipes, and Vinoteka Movia, showcasing the region’s many vintages. This little country offer a great moments for your august holiday.

August holiday destination-St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Caribbean

As in the rest of the Caribbean, prices and crowds drop in the Grenadines  During the late summer. Rain is a constant threat in August, but that just means the island will be at its most lush. Embrace the glamorous lifestyle by island-hopping via yacht, or pick your favorite and stay awhile. Rub elbows with the style set on the resort-strewn isle of Canouan a magnet for billionaires thanks to its yacht-filled marinas, award-winning restaurants, and dreamy villas overlooking the turquoise surf. This month, keep a lookout for events surrounding the Breadfruit Festival, which pays homage to the island’s heritage.

August holiday destination-Portland, Oregon

In recent years Portland became one of the most popular august holiday destinations. Portland’s profile has far surpassed Seattle’s, thanks in no small part to its eccentric start-ups, too-hip restaurants, explosion of microbreweries, and enviable laidback lifestyle. August is consistently warm in Stumtown, and locals are in their element, taking advantage of the city’s indie coffee shops, eclectic festivals, and storied outdoors culture. There are tons of free activities to take part in, from biking to browsing farmers’ markets to gallery hopping. Whatever you do, don’t miss Bite of Oregon on Waterfront Park, an annual August festival that celebrates local food, wine, and craft beer with Iron Chef competitions, local music, and more tastings than you’ll likely have time for.

August holiday destination -Iceland

During Iceland’s harsh winter, daylight is scarce, museums are closed, and many of its interior roads are clogged with ice and snow, closing much of the island to travelers. Summer is a different story, when days experience up to 20 hours of sunlight and routes to some of the island’s most spectacular settings —the Highlands, the Westfjords—reopen, their rolling green landscapes primed for mid day hikes and horseback rides Come August, bird-watching enthusiasts make a beeline for the Westman Islands, in the south, to watch adolescent puffins take flight from their cliff-side nests for the first time. And in late summer, another local pastime resumes: berry picking, when the blueberry-like wild bilberry ripens to ideal sweetness.Its a unique destination for your august holiday thats for sure.
