Holidays in October

How do you usually spend your October? Before you reply, remember that you're talking to a computer. Have some of our expert advice instead; this year, set off on one of our group tours to investigate lesser-seen sides to one of our favourite destinations and spend time with like-minded, interesting people. 


Tucked between Romania and Ukraine, Moldova is a hidden gem that we feel deserves your attention. Moldovan wine is the focus of most visits and Regent’s annual Undiscovered Moldova Group Tour is timed to coincide with the Moldova Wine Festival. Take time to explore the capital, Chisinau, and make sure you visit the Soviet throwback self-proclaimed republic of Transdniestr. Chisinau hasn’t quite shaken off its heritage with its 20th-century Soviet architecture but this is tempered by tree-lined boulevards and numerous parks. Don’t be fooled by the severity of the architecture though as the Moldovans know how to party and the nightlife is legendary.

With the picturesque mountains of Wulai, pulsating cities like Taipei, the stunning cliffs of Penghu, not to mention some of the world’s best hot springs, Taiwan is one of the most diverse destinations Asia has to offer. Visit large, modern cities and explore rural areas and inland mountainous regions, where traditional culture and customs are still perfectly preserved. Whether you have a lot to spend or not, Taiwan is a shopper's paradise. Home to huge shopping malls and excellent night markets, you can pick up a bargain whilst smelling the delicious aroma of authentic Chinese food.

Delve into the history surrounding Romania's most famous historical figure, Vlad the Impaler - or as he is more commonly known, Count Dracula - by touring Transylvania over Halloween. Discove Sibiu's Evangelic Cathedral where Vlad's son was buried after his assasination, explore the town of Medias where he was kept prisoner by the Hungarian king, enjoy a walking tour of the fabulously preserved town of Sighisoara and visit dramatic Bran Castle, made famous by Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.
