Being in Bangkok last April for Songkran was a blast. Literally. It’s the world’s biggest water fight, and anyone is fair game. Imagine a city twice the size of Los Angeles breaking out into a squirt gun fight. After going last year, I decided to make it a point to go back every year.

Anna Maria Island is a phenomenal US Gulf Coast destination to visit any time of the year but is particularly amazing in April. The luscious sugar sand remains cool on your feet as the sun warms up the water and air. Most snow birds (temporary residents from Canada and northern US) have returned home and the summer crowds have not yet arrived. So you will have USA’s finest beaches for yourself this month (except for Spring Break).

If you’re looking for the perfect place to travel to in April, you should definitely check out Lisse. Lisse is known for its colourful tulip fields which are most beautiful in mid April. If you want to have the ultimate experience in Lisse, I’d recommend renting a bike and exploring one of the cycling routes.
In that way, you’ll be able to see many colourful tulip fields in a short amount of time. Lisse is easily accessible from Amsterdam by public transport. Since Lisse is near Amsterdam, you could also visit Amsterdam for a few days! Amsterdam is also beautiful in April, since the flowers in Amsterdam start to bloom in April as well.

Banff National Park is an incredible location to visit at any time of the year. April is the last winter month, and travelers who visit Banff during that time will have a unique chance to witnesses the awakening of Banff from winter and potentially witness some incredible wildlife. While summers in Banff see the most visitors, April offers a more quiet time to see and a unique opportunity to enjoy the solitude of this gorgeous place.

Amsterdam is a popular destination that is at the top of many millennial’s bucket lists. During the spring, the city becomes even more colorful, as the tulip season begins in Holland. You can visit botanical gardens and enjoy the dazzling displays of colorful tulips, or see them growing in parks everywhere in Amsterdam.
There are also tours that take you to the seemingly infinite tulip fields on the outskirts of Amsterdam. There is even a Tulip Festival in Amsterdam if you are serious about seeing tulips in Holland in April.
