April is a great time to travel. The sun is starting to come out more and more often so you don’t have to travel miles away for nice weather. Perhaps you’re after a great skiing destination? April is the best for every kind of vacation.
If you’re after some snow and mountains head to Mayrhofen. You can find this ski resort by the Hintertux glacier. But skiing isn’t all you can do there in April. From the 9th-14th of April, Mayrhofen hosts Snowbombing – a great electronic music festival, people come down for from all over Europe.
As the sunny weather is starting to pick up, beautiful Venice is great for an April weekend city break. It’s very romantic and has a wonderfully interesting history. On the 25th of April, you will find yourself celebrating St Mark’s feast day with the locals. You will be able to witness an impressive gondolier regatta and dancing and celebrations on the St Mark’s Square. Ride around the canals on a gondola and enjoy the views. Did we mention that Aperol Spritz was invented there?
See the Amsterdam canals pained orange as everyone dresses up and celebrates King’s Day on the 27th of April. The canals will be filled with party boats, and on them, everyone dressed in orange. You can also celebrate it by walking around the streets with the locals, enjoying the music. You will stumble upon many locals taking out their speakers outside and hosting their own parties throughout the day too.
Okay, we did say that you won’t have to go miles away but Thailand is great for April.

It’s the beginning of the Thai New Year and the whole country has celebrations for it, which also include street water fights.
This is one of the best places to catch one of the best spectacles of the year in Japan – cherry blossoms. That period runs between the end of April through to early May.
