March in Seville
This is springtime in Seville, which means the sweet smell of orange blossoms will be in the air. According to legend, this historic city was founded by Hercules, so take advantage of the cooler temperatures and go on a walking tour, or climb the steps of the 104.1 metre high "Giralda", a UNESCO heritage site. Semana Santa (Holy Week) is Spain's biggest festival of the year, and sometimes starts at the end of March. Aside from the religious significance, with parades and floats going round the city, it's also the time when everyone comes out to party until the early hours.Find out more Or how about Muscat?
March in Muscat, Oman
March is a great time to go sightseeing in Muscat, as the warm weather is pleasant rather than sweltering. Outside the city, there's the Wadi Dayqah Dam at Mazara, where water cascades against the desert backdrop, or you could take your camera to Sun Mountain at Jebel Shams, which is known as the Grand Canyon of Arabia. Muscat was an original trading post for Frankincense and incense, so take a trip to the Old Muttrah souk to barter for some scented bargains among the narrow streets and tiny shops.Find out more Or how about Seychelles?
March in Seychelles
Not only will the sun be shining, but visiting the Seychelles at the end of the rainy season means the islands will be looking particularly lush. Colonised by the French in the 18th Century, in March they celebrate their roots with the "Fete de la Francophonie". Cultural events aside, the waters are really calm, so diving, snorkelling and swimming will be high on the agenda. And after you've seen the world's largest raised coral atoll, try the national dish of grilled octopus with crushed chilli, ginger and garlic.Find out more Or how about somewhere else?
