Spring is the harbinger of good days ahead and human kindness and warmth. Flowers blossom forth, the entire landscape is wrapped up in all shades of green and the sun shows its face more often. Spring inspires sentiments of joy and cheerfulness. It is an awakening, so to say. Spring injects beauty and allure into most spots around the globe. And you are left with the question “Where should I travel to?” Here are 8 must-visit foreign destinations in the spring to explore new joys...
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The best way to get the lay of a city is to take a walk in that city. And it is taking short breaks during such walks and observing people and the streets. Amsterdam is just the city that fits that profile. There is so much to see in this city... bridges, footpaths along the canals, alleys...that allow you to explore the city. Plan a trip in April to be there in time to witness the blossoming of tulips. You can also take a trip to the city of Leiden, which is an hour’s journey, and see for yourself the beautiful tulip fields.
Virgin Islands, USA
The Virgin Islands, a truly Caribbean paradise, is a place worth seeing with its first-class water sports, oceanfront hotels and white sandy beaches. Here, the most crowded time of the year is March. When April comes, the crowd disappears making the place reasonably inhabited. You will come across beautiful costume parties, boat races and food fairs if you go there in April. The Caneel Bay and the Virgin Islands National Park are some of the must-see places in the area.
If you wish to see the beauty of the city of Casablanca and not endure the insufferable desert heat, you should definitely choose April, when it is both dry and warm. There are many historical and natural beauties here that are a must-see such as the white sandy long coast, the Hassan II Mosque and buildings from the French colonial period.
Would you like to feel the soft spring breeze in the city you are traveling to? Then Tokyo is the go-to-address for you.
