Starting from November through March there are basically no European cities that could be called as having “nice weather,” except for the Canary Islands maybe. So during the winter tourists visit Europe with cultural program as lower hotel prices make it really attractive for travelers who like to stretch their travel budgets and avoid crowds. So we are going to introduce you the cheap places to travel in March. Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

Tenerife is the most famous place at the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa for travelers, but there are other options with the same weather and prices. It isn’t as warm in March as most other places, though at least it’s quick and cheap to get there by plane from Europe, which isn’t true of the others. In comparison with Europe the Canary Islands are a relative bargain, which helps make them popular among travelers all year round. So prices can vary rather a bit from one part of the island to another and it’s good to stay somewhere central if possible so you have the most options for meals and alcohol.
March is a perfect month for the northern and southern African countries, which are where most of the popular places are anyway.

March is a sweet season in Cairo where it’s warm but still not too hot. With so many things to do in the outdoor in Cairo tourists are much better off avoiding the summer heat. Even as part of the high season for hotels, this city is really cheap by most standards so it isn’t a problem to find a big bargain any time of the year.
When Egypt tries to attract travelers you might discover that you can get a good deal at a 3-4-star hotel, since they tend to make their prices lower when demand is weak while the cheaper places hold steady. Meal is very cheap in Cairo too, as long as you avoid the restaurants in those hotels.

It can still be a little chilly in Marrakech in March so it isn’t really perfect for tourists who are completely fed up with snow and cold temperatures, but at least it’ll be pleasant here. Fez is a bit cooler year round and a little cheaper as well, though March can be a little too early for that city if you like warm weather.
There are marvelous numbers of hotels in Marrakech so it’s good to know that the bottom price level will usually be for something that is shabby by European standards so lots of travelers will want to pay a little more for something better. Still, things are going to be cheap in all of Morocco so it’s a nice overall place to visit.

March is very dry in Cape Town, and temperatures keep to be rather perfect all day and all night as well, even for the beach. The high season hotel prices have lowered a little so this is a nice moment to enjoy the best possible weather without need to pay the highest prices for it.
Cape Town is rather cheap once you reach it, so the main problem for most tourists is that it’s rather expensive to fly in. Since most travelers come from longer distances tend to mix Cape Town with a safari or other activities then the airfare may still be worth it for a longer visit, even if it’s too expensive to just come for a few days.
