April is the month of Easter holidays so in some European cities it can be a busy period. But temperatures start to rise all over Europe and April is a great month to visit one of the European capitals.
The month of April is a good month to visit the temperate climatic areas of the northern hemisphere. In this part of the planet, spring has just begun and the climate becomes increasingly mild. The countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea are an excellent destination at this time of the year, even if the rains may be present. The mild climate allows the visit of the art cities of the countries that overlook the Mediterranean Sea.
In Asia, the Japanese spring brings with it the spectacular blooming of cherry trees that has its best moment in the first weeks of April.
April is also excellent for visiting the countries of the Persian Gulf and the Middle East such as Jordan, Iran, Oman and Turkey. In these regions the climate in April is still mild and there are no the high temperatures that characterize the summer months. At the end of this month the dry season ends at the Maldives. In western India the climate is still dry, but temperatures are very high.
In Baja California (Mexico) April is the last possible month if you want to spot the whales in the Sea of Cortez. Even the Mexican coast along the Pacific Ocean has a good dry climate during this period.
In the southern hemisphere instead is autumn and this season allows the vision of the spectacular autumn colors in the trees of the temperate forests. More and more passionate photographers fly to South America this month to admire the autumn colors in the parks of the Chilean and Argentine Patagonia. And if you are in Chile why not take the opportunity to visit one of the most fascinating and isolated places in the world: Easter Island. Called this because it was spotted by a Dutch explorer on Easter Sunday 1722.
Between the end of March and April, the forests of New Zealand are transformed into a multitude of colors. The most beautiful places to see the colors of autumn are the regions of Central Otago (on the South Island) and Hawke’s Bay (on the North Island), but throughout the country the botanical gardens take on spectacular colors. The Perth region of Western Australia enjoys a mild and dry climate during the month of April.
