Wellness retreats are a fantastic way to rest and recharge. You will have the chance to focus on your health by participating in multiple fitness activities. You can expect to partake in yoga, hiking, kayaking and more. You will also get some downtime to fully embrace and experience the country's culture that you're visiting.
If you're interested in wellness retreats, a big question that arises is, "when should I go on a wellness retreat?". Well, any time of the year would be a fantastic time to tour foreign countries and focus on your health. However, each season offers something special depending on the country you're visiting.
Why You Should Travel During the Fall
Fall time is a popular season to travel for many reasons. For starters, going on a getaway during the fall time (October-December) is a great way to recharge before you head into the busy holiday season! However, if you choose to travel during this time, you need to know what the season is like in the country you're visiting.
You don't want to show up in a country where it is consistently raining. Or, it is too hot that you can actually enjoy the outdoors. In addition, some countries have more to offer during the fall time than others.
We have outlined our favorite destinations for fall time travel below. These countries will be in the most ideal season, so you can make the most out of your wellness retreat experience.
Thailand is a country of gorgeous tropical beaches, rich culture, and endless sights. This country should definitely be on your bucket list. Even better if you want to travel to Thailand on a wellness retreat. It is an amazing host country for a wellness retreat as the country really promotes well-being and adventure for tourists.
The best time to visit this incredible country is between October and December. During this time, the weather is optimal as it is dry and warm. Therefore, it will be the best for your outdoor adventures in nature or touring the towns throughout the country. In addition, the seas are much calmer during the fall time, so it is better for water activities. Outside of this time, you will be most likely to be hit with consistent days of rain.
The country is also less busy during the fall time. So if you enjoy the space, Thailand in the fall would be an excellent place for you!

India is the land of spice, color and energetic culture. The country has so much to offer and is a perfect place for a wellness retreat. In India, wellness is a concept that has been in practice since ancient times. A lot of the western world's idea of wellness comes from the learnings from the Indian culture. For instance, the first record of yoga's origins can be traced to northern India over 5,000 years ago. So, wouldn't it be amazing to focus on your health in one of the world's top wellness hubs? We think so!
If you're thinking of planning or attending a wellness retreat in India, the fall time is your best time to visit. The weather is more likely to be warm, sunny, and dry from October to December. Otherwise, the country's heat could reach unbearable temperatures for outdoor activities. So, you will most likely have a better experience on your hikes, tours, and other fitness activities if you are in comfortable weather. It's also a plus that there will be fewer tourists in India during these months!
