Our picks for April...
April is the perfect month to visit Japan, as the start of spring is signalled by the blooming of the cherry blossom, or sakura, a breathtaking effulgence of delicate white and pale pink flowers which is celebrated nationwide with hanami flower-viewing parties and picnics beneath the trees. The event has deep social and cultural significance for Japanese people, and is an unforgettable sight.
April is also when one of the world’s seven natural wonders is at its peak - Victoria Falls. In April, it forms the largest sheet of falling water in the world and is a spectacle not to be missed.
