Tips on How to Make the Most of Your Winter Escape

If you're looking to make the most of your winter escape, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First and foremost, remember that the Maldives and Seychelles experience very different weather patterns and is humid. Clothes made of natural fibers is key.

For the Maldives, December is peak season because it's more dry, so expect prices to be higher than usual. However, if you want to skip the crowds and get lower prices, consider visiting during monsoon season (May-November). In general, the best time to visit is from mid October to early April when temperatures are cooler and the weather is drier.

The Seychelles on the other hand will have lots of rain in November and December but temperatures still remain warm. January and February are also great times to visit as winds gust at lower speeds and bring cooler temperatures perfect for outdoor activities. Keep in mind that if you plan on spending most of your time outdoors you may want to visit later in the winter months when Seychelles has less rain.

Scarlett Poppies carries a wide range for your ultimate destination travel. You will find anything from relaxed, comfortable beach cover-ups to timeless and classy, yet relaxed dresses for dinners by the seaside.

Pack your items with tissue paper in between to avoid sharp lines and creases, and rack them up at final destination immediately upon arrival. Normally the humidity will take care of the creases and leave the garments, with that perfect effortlessly cool look.

Bon Voyage!
