The summer months are fast approaching and that means three things: lighter and more comfortable clothes, refreshing drinks, and trips out of the country. It’s the perfect opportunity to travel since the weather is agreeable, there are plenty of long weekends, and airlines are offering seat sale promos.
For those who haven’t made their summer travel plans yet, here are some events and experiences to try:
Cherry blossom season in Japan (March-April). The cherry blossoms are one of the highlights of spring in Japan. It is so revered that they have an official forecast of when it will bloom. This year, the sakura is predicted to bloom in Tokyo starting March 18 and reaching its peak on March 25.
Yeouido Spring Flower Festival in Korea (March-April). Korea is also home to beautiful flowers. The Yeouido Spring Flower Festival is celebrated on Yeouiseo Road in Seoul, which is home to nearly 90,000 flowers and close to 2,000 Korean cherry trees.
Songkran in Thailand (April 13-15). Songkran marks the Thai new year and is noted for its street parties and friendly water fights. There is, however, a deeper symbolism to this: water washes away the previous year so they can prepare for the next one.
Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the USA (April 14-23). Coachella is an annual music and arts festival in California. It is one of the biggest music festivals in the world and invites both emerging and established musicians from across a wide variety of genres.
Holy Land pilgrimage in Israel (any day). A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a one-of-a-kind experience for believers. The pilgrimage allows travelers to deepen their faith and see the places where Jesus was born and where he preached, suffered, died, and rose again.
