B.Before you book the big trip, make sure you’re in the right place at the right time – whenever you set the date …
A lovely time of year to visit Paris, with fewer crowds, cheaper room rates and temperatures warm enough for a picnic on the banks of the Seine.
Another European city that blooms at this time of year is Amsterdam, which can be reached in four hours on the Eurostar. Here you can comfortably rent bicycles and cycle through the surrounding tulip fields or stroll through the city’s flower market.
Spring is also the ideal time to fly to Japan, when Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka transform under an Instagram-like burst of cherry blossom trees and festivals and the air is less humid than the summer months.
Thailand’s white sand beaches and temples are best to visit from February to April, the driest and warmest time of the year with up to nine hours of bright sunshine a day. A California road trip is just the thing from March to May, with perfect weather (cloudless blue skies but not too hot) so you drop the roof and drive from Santa Monica to San Francisco on the Pacific Coast Highway, stopping at restaurants on cliffs can make breathtaking views of the Pacific on the way. It’s also a great time to visit Los Angeles and Las Vegas before summer temperatures soar to a staggering 40 ° C.
