Travel to Asia in the Spring

Springtime is one of the best times of the year to travel to Asia. During the spring, the temperate transition between seasons is more northern latitudes, for example Tokyo or Seoul, or higher altitudes, such as the Himalayas, make for a beautiful setting to enjoy the full range of cultural and outdoor activities

April is one of the best times of the year to visit Japan. It is the perfect time to head to destinations such as Karuizawa. Here, hot springs of the ryokan Hoshinoya lie in the shadow of Mount Asama, an active volcano.

In Takayama, there is an age-old ritual each spring where residents of rustic villages get together to re-thatch the pitched roofs of homes dubbed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kanazawa, sometimes referred to as "little Kyoto," because of its historic preservation and springtime cherry blossom, is also a great place to see in the spring.


It is also recommended to head to Yunnan, China's southwestern-most province. The breath-taking mountains and terraced rice farms have metallic minerals in the soil that create an extraordinary red color, giving the terrain a sense of uniqueness unlike any other place in the world. While there, you can visit the lovely Naxi town, which flourished due to its role in China's "tea route" during the 7th to 10th centuries.

Nepal's offerings are among the most diverse in Asia. There are world-class opportunities in the UNESCO-protected jungles of Chitwan National Park  and if you go in May you can experience the thrill of skydiving from 29,000 feet alongside Mount Everest. 

Tucked in the Himalayas, lies the enchanting Buddhist nation of Bhutan. The Bhutanese government is making strides in infrastructure, even with a new airport scheduled to open this spring, making it a perfect time to travel. Experience a private dinner, a lama blessing at dzongs, archery lessons, and a stay at the newest Amanresort, Amankora Bumthang.
