Looking for a holiday destination with great weather, better prices and fewer crowds? Then one of the best times to go is during the Spring season. If you have the ability and finances to travel but don’t know where to start, here are a few ideas of must-visits this Spring.
Springtime is the best time to visit Japan, particularly in April when the weather is pleasant and the cherry blossoms, or “Sakura,” bloom in spectacular fashion throughout the country. See them in all their glory at Kenroku-en Gardens in Kanazawa, or in front of the historic Osaka Castle, a castle with a surrounding park lined with over 4,000 cherry trees, an excellent place to enjoy the blossoming springtime.
This is also a great time to visit the beautiful nation of Ireland, as temperatures are beginning to warm. Flowers are in full bloom and valleys are rich and thick from the winter rains. For breath-taking scenery of the rugged west coast of Ireland, drive the Wild Atlantic Way from Derry to West Cork and stop often for unforgettable photo opportunities and incredible scenic views. Be sure to visit Connemara for stunning mountain views that have been the backdrop of many famous movies and films.
