Spring break is over and mild temperatures can be found in many parts of the world. It’s time to hit the road. Whether you’re looking to see spring in bloom, an adventure in the great outdoors, or cultural immersion, there are plenty of destinations that are perfect for a vacation next month. Here are five of the best places to visit in April.
Cherry blossom season in Japan is one of the most beautiful natural spectacles in the world. The delicate pink and white flowers can be seen throughout the country from late March to early May, making April the perfect time to visit. Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka, and Hiroshima are popular destinations for cherry blossom viewing.
April is a great time to visit Morocco, with warm temperatures and fewer crowds than in the peak summer months. Marrakesh, with its vibrant markets and historic architecture, is a must-see destination, while the Sahara Desert offers an unforgettable adventure.
3. The Netherlands
Tulip season in the Netherlands is a sight to behold, with fields of colorful flowers stretching as far as the eye can see. Keukenhof Gardens is one of the best places to see tulips in all their glory, but you can also find tulip fields in other parts of the country.
April marks the beginning of the hot season in Thailand, but it’s also the month of the Songkran Festival, a national holiday that celebrates the Thai New Year. This water festival involves throwing water on others and is a fun and festive time to visit the country. Bangkok (click here for some of my recommendations), Chiang Mai, and Phuket are popular destinations for Songkran festivities.
Greece offers warm temperatures and fewer crowds than in the peak summer months. Athens, with its ancient ruins and vibrant nightlife, is a must-see destination, while the Greek islands offer stunning beaches and picturesque villages. Visiting without the crowds offers a better chance to experience more authentic Greek life.
Anthony’s Take: No matter where you choose to go in April, be sure to pack for varied weather conditions, as temperatures can change quickly. And, don’t forget to enjoy the spring blooms and festivities that make this time of year so unique.
