Last time, we let you in on what the world does to celebrate the end of winter and the start of spring. Today, let’s check out the places that you can visit this April.
The world has a lot to offer to travellers. It’s all about knowing when and where to go. So, here are a few places that are perfect to visit this April:
In Chile, April marks the start of their fall foliage season. The weather is mild and fewer people are visiting the park at this time of the year as its peak season has just ended.
So, if you’re the type of traveller that doesn’t fancy going with the crowd, then this is the perfect time of the year to check out some of Patagonia’s attractions.
Take on the W Trek located in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park and take in Patagonia’s mountains, lakes, and glaciers. The best part about going here in April is that there are fewer people.
Tea lovers will want to visit Suzhou. That’s because the Jiangsu Province, notably Dongting Mountain, in particular, celebrates the Bilouchun Tea Culture and Tourism Festival throughout April. Visitors can enjoy folk art exhibits and try out the local cuisine.
And, of course, visitors have the chance to pick bilouchun tea leaves from thousand-year-old bushes. Finally, visitors can also expect specialised tea hours to help bring leaf lovers closer together.
Ojai is a small city located northwest of Los Angeles. April is a busy month for the small town as it is the beginning of Pixie Season. It is that time of year where over three million pounds of small tangerines, called pixies, are harvested.
If you manage to come down during the peak of the harvest, you can smell the air as it is filled with the sweet citrus smell, and try these pixie tangerines for yourself as they are hauled in from the many farms. These fruits will then be sent out to different countries throughout the world. After a long day of hauling fruits, visit the city and end the day in one of the town’s many restaurants and try a pre-dinner pixie cocktail.
Central Otago [New Zealand]
If you don’t want to go far, Central Otago in New Zealand may be up your alley. The picturesque mountains and valleys is what sets Central Otago apart from other parts of New Zealand. Visitors can come and visit some of the region’s wine-growing estates and watch as the trees change their colour as the month progresses with autumn.
The climate is perfect for afternoon hikes and bike rides with the promise of great scenery along the way. It’s truly a trip worth taking especially for those of us who love the great outdoors and the autumn weather.
Cam Ranh Bay [Vietnam]
Cam Ranh Bay was once a US Military base. But since the war, it has evolved into a high-end destination for honeymooners and pro-golfers alike. The beaches are white and the water clear. It is also a popular destination for motorcycle riders in the area.
All the countries on this list offer travellers something new to see and experience. So, why not take the time to know more about each destination and give yourself a break from your daily routine? Once you’ve booked your flight and are flying out of Brisbane, Melbourne or the Gold Coast, don’t forget to get an airport parking spot with Alpha Airport Parking. Here, your car can stay safe while you’re out and about.
