2018 Spring | TOP 5 Best Destinations for a Fabulous Exotic Trip

Spring is the perfect time to take a few days off. Everything gets warmer, cherry blossoms are starting to bloom, and Spring Equinox celebrations are taking place. From St. Patrick’s Day festivities to spring regattas to national festivals, here are the best places to travel in spring.

1. Aruba

One of the greatest places to visit in the Caribbean sea paradise, Aruba is a low altitude island country with a dry climate and arid, cactus-strewn landscape, fact that contributed immensely to the development of tourism. The beaches here are very easy to get to from any point in the island, whether you go by car, bus or on foot. The number of beaches compared to the total surface of Aruba is impressive.

2. Montserrat

Also in the Caribbean, located southeast of Puerto Rico, Montserrat is the only country besides Ireland where St. Patrick’s Day is an official government holiday. The festivities last a full week, and locals wear their national dress — predominant color: green.

Montserrat is blessed with natural beauty. On land there are lush tropical forests with trails of varying difficulty. Many can be enjoyed on your own, however, some require a guide to make the path clear. Stop by the National Trust our Tourist Information for a map.

For those who love the sea, the island is surrounded by reefs. Snorkeling and scuba diving can be enjoyed from shore or by boat.

3. Galapagos
Nature lovers will find the Galapagos Islands the perfect place for their vacation. This is the place where you can completely relax and escape from the crowded places and the grey skies and enjoy the untouched natural environment of the islands, where the sun shines almost always, the sea breezes caress your skin and the animals will roam around constantly, as they have no instinctive fear of humans.

4. Tokyo
In Japan, it’s a sure sign that spring has arrived when the country’s national flower starts to bloom. Since the famed pink blossoms can only be viewed for two weeks, hanami (blossom viewing) is a big deal throughout the country. Time a trip during the annual Cherry Blossom Festival for better odds of catching the natural wonder. Some of the best viewing spots include Ueno Park, Inokashira Park, Sumida Park and along the Meguro River.

Tokyo is vast: it’s best thought of not as a single city, but a constellation of cities that have grown together. Tokyo’s districts vary wildly by character, from the electronic blare of Akihabara to the Imperial gardens and shrines of Chiyoda, from the hyperactive youth culture Mecca of Shibuya to the pottery shops and temple markets of Asakusa. If you don’t like what you see, hop on the train and head to the next station, and you will find something entirely different.

Tokyo has a vast array of sights, but the first items on the agenda of most visitors are the temples of Asakusa, the gardens of the Imperial Palace (in Chiyoda) and the Meiji Shrine (明治神宮, in Harajuku).

5. Fiji
Fiji is the product of volcanic mountains and warm tropical waters. Its majestic and ever-varied coral reefs today draw tourists from around the world.

Visit Fiji during Holi – the Festival of Colors (1st and 2nd of March 2018), when the Indo-Fijian locals toss colored powder at one another to celebrate the arrival of spring. Dancing, singing and bonfires are also part of the late-March party, which is the least religious and most social of the Hindu holidays.

See the Pacific Island Air – Scenic Helicopter & Seaplane Flights, the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, Fiji Museum, the Sigatoka Jet Boat Safari and the Heli-Tours Fiji – Scenic Helicopter Flights. Try Whitewater rafting and Kayaking and enjoy the exotic paradise at its best.

No matter which one of these amazing destinations you choose for your trip this spring, you will definitely have a wonderful vacation and a very relaxing and fascinating experience.
