Easter brings with it numerous opportunities for adventure on the Asian continent and you can rest assured that somewhere the weather will be pleasant, flowers will be in full bloom and the waters will be warm. Here are our top recommendations for Easter!
With pristine beaches, warm turquoise waters and world-renowned diving, The Philippines is perfect for an island getaway, and Easter is one of the last opportunities to head there before the monsoon rains. Dig out your diving gear, paddle around the palm fringed bays in a kayak or simply relax and enjoy these transcendent surroundings. Alternatively, Vietnam is an exciting option for a beach break with a little splash of culture. Relax on the sands of Nha Trang or cruise around the limestone outcrops of Halong Bay after soaking up the sights of Vietnam’s charming cities.
Another great option around Easter time is Japan. With cherry blossom season lasting throughout March and April, you are most likely to catch these delicate flowers in full bloom as it sweeps across the country, a truly magical sight.
China is also wonderful at this time of year, as the summers are humid and the winters are bitterly cold. Catch it just right and you can enjoy pleasant temperatures and dry conditions, making it much more comfortable for travel. The flowers are also in full bloom throughout the country, making it even more pleasant for a visit.
For those with an interest in wildlife then Borneo has the answer. Observe Orang-utans in their natural environment and traverse exhilarating jungle trails. There is never a bad time to head here as temperatures remain relatively steady throughout the year, although visitors to the rainforest regions should expect the occasional downpour.
