Top travel tips for a spring getaway
It’s often the best season to holiday in as the weather is warming up but it’s not yet scorching
Visiting in the spring means you’ll find mild temperatures and fewer crowds.
SPRING is finally here and so is the best time to be travelling. Make sure you look first before booking your holiday as spring occurs at different months in other parts of the world. Europe (March, April, May) – Why travel to Europe in spring? Expect nice weather and less crowds, meaning shorter queues at major tourist attractions. Prices are generally cheaper than the busy times of June, July and August. Visit Holland in mid-April to see tulips at their best. More than seven million flower bulbs bloom in spring at the Keukenhof in Lisse.
America (March, April, May, June, but technically March 21 to June 21, as the official start of spring is when the sun is directly over the equator) – Visiting in spring means you’ll find mild temperatures and fewer crowds. In New York it is the start of the baseball season, locals are shedding their winter layers and it’s a great time to walk, bike or take a carriage through Central Park. Asia (March, April, May) – Spring is a great time to visit Asia. Of course, there is a huge geographical variation but parts of the region aren’t yet in monsoon season and temperatures have not hit their summer peak. April is the best time to marvel at the beauty of the cherry blossoms in Japan.
Pacific (September, October, November) – Visitors are attracted to the warm tropical climate that’s perfect for beach holidays. The temperatures are pleasant so you can escape the winter chill at home, and it’s also not the rainy season. P&O has five ships sailing, giving you the chance to experience the beautiful beaches, snorkel, swim and meet the friendly locals.
