10 places to go in April

Wondering where to go in April? See Japan's famed cherry blossom, walk the Amalfi Coast or come face-to-face with Bengal tigers in India's Ranthambore National Park.



While cherry blossom season officially begins in March, the flowers really come into their own at the beginning of April. It’s busier at this time but embrace the crowds and bring your camera to document the blossoms. The phenomenon occurs across the country, beginning in the south and rolling upwards to Hokkaido Island, which is the coldest part of the country. Our Shogun Trail vacation combines rustic, rural charm with cities aglow with neon lights – it’s a feast for the senses and offers a great opportunity for spotting blossoms in a variety of locations.

Travelling to Morocco in the spring means the chance to see the magnificent contrast of the dusty red desert against the snowy peaks of the Atlas Mountains. The temperatures have not yet reached the peaks of the summer, and in the mountains it’s particularly pleasant for exploring, with springtime flowers flanking the trails and crisp, clear skies. Head off on our Best of Morocco vacation to lose yourself in the ancient cities, walk in Morocco’s answer to the Grand Canyon – the Todra Gorge – and among the peaks of the Middle Atlas.

Go in search of manta ray as you island-hop on a traditional dhoni boat in the Maldives. An abundance of plankton attracts large squadrons of these gentle ocean giants in April, giving you the best chance of seeing these curious creatures. As they gracefully glide through the crystal-clear aquamarine waters, dive in to get a closer look. Uncover a vibrant underwater world of fluorescent coral, teeming reefs and an array of marine wildlife in this exotic archipelago.

With cooler temperatures throughout April, walking in Italy will be a breeze. Embark on a trekking tour of the Amalfi Coast to soak up the sunshine from a peaceful farm overlooking the Mediterranean sea, with clifftop hikes and woodlands walks to keep you busy. You’ll also sample home-produced organic food and wine, and have the opportunity to make your very own pizzas.

Greece can get busy in the summer months. Go early in April to avoid the crowds and you will find your photographs at the classic tours sights blissfully devoid of tourists. Our tour of the Peloponnese takes in Athens’ Acropolis, the perched ruins of Delphi, the birthplace of the Olympic Games and an excursion to Epidavros.

Head off on our Festivals of Bhutan vacation in April and your departure will coincide with one of the country’s most famous annual festivals: Paro. Taking place in Paro dzong monastery, the festivities draw thousands of visitors to watch masked dances and hear stories of good triumphing over evil. This is a chance to experience a traditional festival surrounded by locals – there will be a few other tourists, but due to the limited numbers of people travelling to Bhutan, the numbers will be small.

Jordan is a fantastic destination for families, with warm hospitality, stunning landscapes and endless activities to keep kids and teens entertained. Travelling in April means warm but not scorching hot temperatures, making it more comfortable for travelling and bedding down, Lawrence of Arabia-style, in Bedouin camps. Particular highlights of our Family Jordan adventure include exploring the Mars-like dunes of Wadi Rum, and swimming in both the Red Sea and Dead Sea.

The Easter school vacations provide (at least) two leisurely weeks off school, and what better way to make the most of the time off than with a family trip to India? Our ten day India Golden Triangle family adventure is a perfect introduction to this magical country. There’s nowhere on earth more colorful, culturally diverse and energetic than India, so it’s perfect for busy and inquisitive minds. What’s more, April is also one of the best times to see tigers in Ranthambore National Park.
