As July arrives, many parts of Asia find themselves in the clutches of the monsoon season, marked by sweltering heat and humidity. But there's a delightful exception in Indonesia and Borneo, where the weather takes on a sunny, rain-free persona. While gentle showers do visit the tropical rainforests of Borneo, they're a far cry from the torrential downpours of the wet season. Bali tends to be bustling with tourists in July and August, yet you'll discover serene corners away from the crowds. And, across the archipelago, countless other islands await, promising exclusive and authentic experiences, whether you're drawn to local culture and cuisine, nature and wildlife, or the thrill of surfing and scuba diving.
Ladakh, nestled in the Indian Himalaya, remains a haven of great weather throughout July. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka's East Coast bathes in sunshine, with occasional brief showers. If you can handle the higher temperatures and humidity, July typically marks the inter-monsoon season, offering an opportunity to enjoy every corner of the country. It's an excellent choice for a summer holiday, particularly for families.
For outdoor enthusiasts, summertime in northern Japan beckons you to explore Hokkaido, the island of endless beauty. Days are long and sunny, and nights bring a refreshing coolness during July and August. Just as the Netherlands comes alive with tulips, Hokkaido bursts into a riot of brilliant flowers in full bloom throughout July.
