Oryx presents its insiders tips for places to visit in April. Experience romantic moments in Paris, take part in cherry-blossom viewing in Tokyo, and celebrate the Thai New Year in Phuket.


Romantic moments in Paris

Paris is unbeatable in spring. In April, the sun is out more often and temperatures are rising, ideal for coffee on the terrasse. Paris deserves its reputation as the most romantic city in the world. Generations of couples in love have shared a romantic moment from viewpoints across the capital, from the Trocadéro esplanade with the Eiffel Tower in the background; to the Montmartre hillside steps, below the Sacré-Coeur; or the square in front of Notre-Dame. Paris is also the home of great food and boasts a plethora of restaurants from traditional bistros to smart, trendy restaurants and Michelin-starred establishments.

Cherry-blossom viewing in Tokyo

In April, Tokyo is in the middle of the cherry-blossom season, so head to any of the numerous parks that are scattered throughout the city and join hanami parties under the flowering branches. Shinjuku Gyoen, Ueno Park, and Chidorigafuchi offer some of the most beautiful sakura.

Celebrate Thai New Year in Phuket

April marks the end of the high season in Phuket, so hotel prices are generally lower than earlier in the season. Its the hottest time of year but very pleasant on the beach. Its also the month of Songkran, celebrating the start of the Thai New Year and involving a week of water-throwing celebrations.


Phuket, Thailand
