The Best Places for an Asian Spring Break

Richard Collett

Hiking trails, authentic street food and wild waterfalls – book your place on one of these Culture Trip adventures to experience Asia in the way you dreamt of.

Spring is both an exciting and culturally rich time to visit Asia. This is when the continent celebrates, with spring festivals bringing colour and noise to the streets after winter. Catch Songkran in Thailand, visit Japan in Golden Week and see Reunification Day in Vietnam. The weather will still be cool and mostly dry – with excellent conditions for hiking and lounging on beaches. To inspire your next getaway, these are the best destinations for an Asian spring break.

Bali, for wild waterfalls and snorkelling

Bali lies just south of the equator, so spring here is a transition between the wet and dry seasons – ideal if you want to beat the high season crowds and have cooler, drier weather for hiking and snorkelling. This 12-day Culture Trip group tour to the Island of the Gods takes you on a sunrise hike to Mount Batur and includes visits to the underwater statues of the Gili Islands and the quirky cafes and bars of Canggu. Along the way, you’ll learn how to cook Balinese curries, swim in wild waterfalls and learn about the nuances of Balinese religious ceremonies as you tour across the Indonesian island.
