Travelling to Asia in Spring? 

22 Mar 2022

Do you remember your previous traveling experience before COVID? Or if you have an assignment in Asia? With Omicron cases ebbing, we might resume our traveling plans in spring and summer! With many countries like Thailand starting to release their coronavirus restrictions, people expect the spring for the traveling industry. People in Asian countries are now enjoying the blissful spring, indicating the end of winter and the start of warm days. The weather in East Asia is lovely as you can see the blooming flowers everywhere. 

No matter where you are from, you must have heard of cherry blossom from Japan and Korea. Cherry blossom, also known as Sakura from Japanese, is a symbolic flower blooming in spring, and it symbolizes a time of renewal and the fleeting nature of life. Japan and South Korea are the most popular counties that people would travel to see cherry blossoms bloom. The Cherry Blossom Festival begins in the south of Japan around late March and ends in the north around May. The beauty of cherry blossom is an excellent reason for everyone to go on a picnic and is also a niche as people are willing to spend a fortune on goods linked to cherry blossom. Instead of the well-known cherry blossom, you can also see a wide range of other flower species- no wonder why spring is such a lovely season.

If you prefer mountain views rather than flowers, Taiwan is the perfect match for you in spring. Yangmin Shan in Taipei is a famous mountain, one of the best national parks in Taiwan, and well-known as a place to have a sauna. The view is astonishing

Stories in Southeast Asia are slightly different. The weather is not as gentle as in East Asia, and spring is the hottest time to travel in Southeast Asia. You may not know that the temperatures reach their peaks for the year in April and May. Luckily, people in Thailand know how to cool themselves down. On April 13 each year, the famous water fight in Thailand started to celebrate the traditional Thai New Year. Since pouring water to others is a culture meaning a blessing, no one can stay dry until the end. This event also attracts Thais and people from all around the world. You can feel joy everywhere in Thailand.

Other than the water festival in Thailand, there are still numerous festivals in other Asian Countries, like Reunification Day in Vietnam. Spring in Asia is lovely and unique. Even though the COVID situation is rough, we hope that we can travel around the world in spring or summer!
