Spring is one of the best times to visit a new country. It isn’t too hot or cold, and you get to experience everything a city has to offer without bad weather ruining everything. While there are dozens of places you can go to in springs, there are certainly a few standouts.
Italy is easily one of the best holiday destinations no matter the time of year, but Spring is undoubtedly the best season to visit. The fields are green, the orchards and plants are blossoming, and cool breezes complement the warm sun.
Whether you spend it in the cities of Rome, Florence or Naples, on the beach, or in the vast countryside, everywhere is perfect for a holiday this time of year.
Much like Italy, France in Spring is almost like a postcard, and its one of the most recommended country to visit in Spring. A holiday on the French coast is hard to match anywhere else on earth. If you are feeling a bit glamorous, a weekend in Monaco is the place to be.
Considering how cold somewhere like France can get and how hot the Summer can be, going a bit earlier is the perfect time to visit the City of Love.
Unlike most of Europe, Greece doesn’t suffer from bitterly cold Winters or scorching Summer. With a relatively temperate climate all year round, Spring is usually a quieter time compared to Summer.
The Greek islands of Santorini, Crete, Corfu, and Naxos are all favored tourist hubs, but there are also a number of smaller, quieter islands you can visit if you want a relaxed week or two away from the hustle and bustle.

Mexico is a popular tourist hotspot for those from across the United States. It is very cheap, has tons of delicious food, and has a rich culture that is on display everywhere you go. Summer can see it get too hot for non-locals, so the months before that are preferred for visitors from Europe.
Mexico is also one of the best starting points for traveling into Latin America or a great way to end off a holiday in the States. Cancun is one of the most popular spots; not only is it beautiful, but it is incredibly budget-friendly
The United Kingdom is known for a number of things, with terrible weather, unfortunately, being one of them. If you want to avoid the 30+ degree Summers, or the constant rain and snow, the Spring months are for you.
Even wetter and colder parts such as Scotland enjoy some of the best weather of the year during this time. It also allows for many activities that are almost unpleasant any other time of year, like hiking, walks, and weekends away on the coast.
Like most other Asian countries, Japan can have very extreme weather patterns, with the monsoon season being a time to avoid a holiday there. However, the season of blossoms falls a few months before the rainy season and is possibly the best time to visit the country.
The cherry blossoms will be in bloom, the weather is perfect for a day at the beach, and it isn’t too hot for a few adventures in the country and mountains in the south of the island.
Thailand is one of the most popular holiday spots in the world, and it isn’t hard to see why. The cheap cost of living allows you to live like royalty no matter your budget, with everything from food to entertainment being almost unbelievably cheap.
Cities such as Krabi, Pattaya, and Phuket are all on magical islands that have some of the clearest water you will ever see and the softest and sandiest beaches. Thailand is perfect for a week away, a honeymoon, or just having fun for a couple of weeks.
South Africa is a favored destination for those from the States and Europe. The strong Dollar, Euro, and Pound mean almost everything is cheap, and you can stay in the best hotel and eat the best food for a reasonable price.
Considering how hot and busy the Summer can be, visiting this country in Spring gives you all the benefits of the good weather, without the hundreds of thousands of other tourists.
