Spring is upon us and we just can’t wait for all the beauty it always brings. And, of course, the best time to travel is in spring when the weather is not too cold nor too hot.
If you’re planning to travel this upcoming spring, make sure to book a trip to the right place. Indeed, the whole world is beautiful and there are plenty of travel destinations to pick from, but some places are just prettier than others — especially in the spring season!
First, you have to take your budget into consideration and try to book cheap flights, affordable hotels, especially if you’re taking your family with you, and a suitable vacation length that wouldn’t exhaust your pocket!
Now back to talking about the most beautiful places that are waiting for you at the other end of the world! Read on to find out about the top 5 of these destinations that you should totally see this spring.
5. Auckland, New Zealand

New Zealand is already a country that is known for its breathtaking green sceneries and clean environment. Auckland, a city in the North Island of New Zealand, is the perfect image of New Zealand’s beauty in spring.
And don’t be mistaken, just because Auckland is a “city,” it is not all about city life, which is good news for people who are looking for a nature escapade.
From beautiful island escapes like Rotoroa Island to sandy surf beaches like Anawhata or Long Bay, Auckland is a haven for different fun activities and, of course, the never-ending green! Simply, you never get bored there.
Just make sure to take warm clothes with you since it can get a bit cold despite the generally mild temperatures in spring. If you choose to go to Auckland this spring, opt for May, in which the area is relatively less crowded and the airfare and hotel booking are cheaper.
4. Douro Valley, Portugal

Douro Valley is one of those places on Earth that deserve a visit at least once in a lifetime — preferably in spring!
Douro Valley in northern Portugal is the epitome of beauty in spring, with its enchanted river, soulful green landscapes, and fresh air to fill your lungs with to their heart’s content.
March is the perfect month to visit Douro Valley, thanks to the mild temperature, full-fledged picturesque landscapes, and the lack of crowdedness.
There, you’ll get to enjoy river cruises, boat trips, fly on hot air balloons, try kayaking, take a road trip, visit the region’s history museum, or even take a helicopter ride.
There, you can also find cheaper flight tickets and hotel rooms, as compared to the peak season.
