You deserve it!
If the weather outside the window does not please you, and the soul desperately requires sun and love, then pay attention to those areas where spring has already entered into its own rights. And while everyone dreams of spring warmth and a drop of happiness, we have put together a selection of countries where you can go to thaw amidst blooming beauty.
Portugal is a real paradise for tourists. In addition, unlike France or Italy, travelers are much smaller, so no one will bother you to fully enjoy the sights and beauties of this amazing country. The multi-colored facades of the houses, picturesque streets in the old quarters, numerous monasteries and cozy restaurants where they divinely cook fish on the grill will not leave anyone indifferent, even the most experienced skeptics.
This country will delight those who are already desperate to warm themselves under the rays of the spring sun. Here you can see tangerine and orange trees and at least for a while forget about the snow, which this year fell with interest. We recommend you go to Seville, where you can take a leisurely stroll through the city’s sun-drenched streets, wrap yourself in one of the many cafes and enjoy invigorating aromatic coffee.
In this sunny country, as well as in neighboring Spain, it seems that spring never ends. Still, you just have to look south, for example, to Rome, and you can find flowering tangerine or peach trees almost at the end of winter. Add here the hospitality of smiling Italians, incredibly delicious traditional dishes, picturesque cities, unique sights and the gentle sun – the secret of this Dolce Vita is revealed!
To enjoy the spring sun, hospitality and the harsh beauty of mountain temples, it is not necessary to go to Europe. All this (and even more!) Can be found in Georgia. Go to Tbilisi or Batumi, take a walk around the old city, drop by the local tavern, try Kindzmarauli or Suliko and certainly learn how to dance Lezginka. Why not actually?
Well, if you want oriental exoticism, then turn your eyes to Japan. It was at this time in the south of the country that the Hanami (sakura blossom) season began, which gradually transferred to the northern regions and ended only in May. True connoisseurs of the beautiful claim that this sight is worth seeing at least once in a lifetime, because it is not in vain that Sakura is the hallmark of Japan. In addition, gardening enthusiasts will be able to see blooming azaleas, multi-colored moss, and the mysterious black karafuna flower at this time. Just remember that in spring there is an influx of tourists, so you should take care of the hotel reservation in advance.
In order to fully enjoy the spring, and also to see China without smog, skyscrapers and terrible traffic jams, you should go straight to Hangzhou. This city was able to preserve its cultural and historical past, impressing even the most sophisticated tourists. So, for example, here you can stroll through a magnificent park with ancient pagodas, springs, tea plantations and Lake Xihu, which is the heart and symbol of the ancient Chinese capital. In addition, true romantics advise you to meet the sunset here, because it is so beautiful that at such moments you want to cry from happiness and confess your love to your soulmate again and again.
