Below are the best locations for a trip from February 26th to March 4th. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In late February and early March each of these places are the perfect balance between temperate weather and smaller crowds, which also translates into better deals for tourists.
Because we’ve located areas and times where there is a greater chance for hotels/flights to be under capacity and weather is likely to be temperate and dry, the best time to book these 10 trips is usually within 1-4 weeks before travel.
1. Malaga, Spain
Malaga has perfect weather from February 26th to March 4th. The weather is less than ideal in the weeks before and good in the weeks after. Tourism in the area is somewhat slow during this time. Choosing Malaga this week is a great choice for anyone looking for nice weather and lower prices.

3. Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Due to the average number of tourists, a trip to Hong Kong in late February and early March tends to be neither the least nor the most expensive, but the weather couldn’t be better. This period of ideal weather comes after some similarly enjoyable weather. If booking a longer trip, you’ll want to know that the weather will be almost as enjoyable for the next 30 days. Note that it can get busy here in other seasons.

4. Agios Nikolaos, Greece
As with every place on this list, temperatures in Agios Nikolaos feel excellent, rain is infrequent, and there are no travel advisories at the moment. Tourists looking for hotels and flights are somewhat common during this time, so prices may be about average. The many hotels here can fill up, but probably won’t during this period. We wouldn’t recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is almost as good as late February and early March.
