9 Best Destinations to Travel This Spring

Spring is finally here! That means the days are getting longer, the weather is neither too hot nor too cold and you no longer have to wear every single layer of clothing you own. Beautiful flowers are blooming so it is one of the best times to enjoy all the beauty Mother Nature has to offer. Here are the 9 best spring destinations in the world to visit this April. 

1. Marrakesh, Morocco

The weather may be close to unbearable in the summer but is perfectly pleasant in April. Experience a kaleidoscope of colours, scents and sounds in this charming and architecturally interesting city, and meet vibrant musicians, storytellers, snake charmers and fortune tellers. 

2. Vaud, Switzerland

Nestled next to Lake Geneva is the little village of Les Avants in Vaud. It is a magical place to stroll and ride a bicycle, particularly in May when great stretches of flowers come to bloom, with the snow capped mountains of the Swiss Alps in the background. 

3. Tokyo, Japan 

April is no doubt the best time of year to visit Tokyo, as it where and when thousands of sakura or cherry blossom trees burst into full bloom to mark the end of winter. Take part in the hanami ritual, which literally translates to looking at flowers.

4. Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The last Saturday in April annually marks the King’s Day celebrations (or Koningsdag) all across the Netherlands. Expect lots of street parties the evening before and huge flea markets selling little treasures and food. Bonus point – April is also peak tulip season there so check out Keukenhof, the largest flower garden in the world. 

5. New York, USA

Too sweltering hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter, the perfect time to visit the Big Apple is in during spring as it also draws fewer tourist crowds. Shop until you drop, admire the Empire State Building, feast on delicious cuisines and enjoy the springtime blooms in the infamous Central Park.

6. Monaco 

The best time to visit the world’s smallest country is before the Grand Prix in May. Expect lovely springtime weather, smaller tourist crowds, charming markets and food halls. Stroll Fontvielle Harbour at dusk and take a yacht ride along the coast. 

7. Provence, France 

Provence has charmed people for ages. You’ll see rolling fields of breathtaking lavender scattered all around and many quiet but beautiful villages. Provence is also known for Côte d’Azur and bustling markers dedicated to selling fresh produce, flowers and antiques. 

8. Santorini, Greece

With its bleach-white houses and blue-domed churches, Santorini is a picture perfect Old World destination to spend your April. Highlights include prehistoric Akrotíri ruins, stunning seascapes, wineries and black sands at Perissa. 

9. Alberta, Canada

One of Canada’s greatest treasures is Banff National Park. It is home to picturesque turqoise-coloured lakes mirroring snow-covered mountains, blooming flowers and wild forests. April attracts less crowds so camp a night or stay at one of the historical hotels.
