Choosing where to go on holiday can be a minefield (although it's a pretty good problem to have). School holiday periods get crowded, winter months mean expensive long-haul flights, and those in-between times can result in unpredictable weather.
It's a totally personal experience, but if you're in need of a bit of Vitamin D and the view outside isn't looking pretty, we've done the research and discovered 12 destinations around the world that will be warm and quiet – a different one for each month of the year.
Of course we don't expect anyone to tick off all 12 in a year, but here are some options if you're itching for a hot holiday in February or a sunny city break in October.
Flights correct as of August 2016, prices may vary.
