1. Koh Samui, Thailand
First on the list is the pristine and calm local shores of Koh Samui. Although the island does not actually have spring season, it is a good place to visit for warm weather and blue seas, besides amazing waterfalls, and magnificent Buddhist temples.
Located on the Eastern side of the Thai mainland in the province of Surat Thani, you can choose to go island hopping, snorkelling, or for a relaxing yoga retreat. This destination may not exactly be a hub of activity but there are enough things to see and do either on your own or together as a family.
Places worth a visit:
- Chaweng Beach – one of the more popular beaches on the island with fine white sand and an excellent nightlife scene.
- Chaweng Night Market – this place is the lead attraction of this island and a foodie’s paradise
- Wat Phra Yai Temple – and experience the 12-metre high Big Buddha.
- Wat Khunaram – the mummified monk who died in 1973 while meditating seated down.
This is the place to go for an idyllic and relaxing holiday that will probably be most easy on your wallet.
Spring season in Taiwan lasts from March to May and temperatures are usually nice and comfortable, typically between 20-25°C. It's certainly a good time to visit - you’ll get to see the cherry and plum blossoms in full bloom! With temperatures at such comfortable levels, it's also a good time for hiking and visiting the island's parks.
The spring season is also a time of many cultural events and festivals that can make your trip one to remember. You can catch the Penghu Ocean Fireworks Festival or the Baosheng Cultural Festival from April to June. The Baosheng festival is held at the city’s most popular temple with a variety of performances and activities to give you a little insight of the customs and traditions of the people.
