Excursions or the sea: an overview of the May leisure in different countries
May holidays – a great opportunity to relax and travel. Wherever you go, you have two options – enjoy the sun on the beach or explore the urban surroundings. You can get settled in a lounge chair, turning it to the sea, sipping cocktails, watching the colorful sunset and listening to the sound of the surf. But on the other hand, I would like to go on a tour. Stroll through the ancient streets, visit the remains of ancient ruins, make an atypical selfie with the monument and enjoy the mood of the city. Today we consider the main advantages of both types of recreation, and you decide which one is closer to you.
Beach vacation in top resorts
May is considered the beginning of the beach season in many countries. Travelers are actively planning tours to Egypt, Cyprus, Turkey and Greece, where the beaches are already flooded with solar heat, and the coastal hotels are prepared for the tourist season.
The Red Sea is one of the main incentives to visit Egyptian resorts. The water in May is already warmed up to 25 ° С, and the underwater coral world with its colorful inhabitants attracts diving. Egypt offers not only a beach holiday and club nightlife, but also a lot of fun for kids. Water parks, children’s attractions, swimming pools and mini-clubs will not be bored, especially if children are entertained by an animator.
Turkish resorts are also ready to welcome guests. The air temperature in May is over 20 ° C, but the sea wind can make the evenings cool, so don’t forget a couple of warm things when going to Turkey for the weekend.
Holiday in exotic countries
Those who have long dreamed of the tropics should be sent to the Seychelles. Coconut palms, white sand and reserves with rare birds – such a rest can hardly be called ordinary. At the end of spring, there is almost no rain here, and the temperature is consistently around 25 ° C. Against the background of pristine nature, a network of comfortable hotels and restaurants is developed here – a vivid example when the modern world is immersed in the beauty of wild landscapes.
In the country of eternal summer – the Dominican Republic – spring is considered the best time for rest. The warm water pleases the thermophilic divers, and the lack of precipitation wishing to see the surroundings. Going on a sea excursion, you will discover an unforgettable sight – flocks of humpback whales, which can be found off the coast in May. Little Dominicana gave the world many beautiful places. Los Haitises National Park with ecologically clean nature, Jarabacoa or a mountain of waterfalls, the shining coasts in the Costa del Ambar and the Jaragua Marine Park are not all that you need to see.
If you want something inspiring, plan a trip to Nepal. In the mountainous slopes of the Himalayas, Buddhist temples are lost with their centuries-old wisdom and magical pacification.
When the awakening to exciting legends, walks and small street cafes woke up, follow your heart and go to one of the European countries. You can give preference to a tour of the most popular European cities, as well as individual trips to a selected country. The first option is suitable for those who have not been to Europe. After seeing a lot of cities, appreciating their rhythm of life, cuisine, getting to know the locals, you can choose a favorite point in your traveler map and plan a summer vacation there, for example. If you decide to go to a particular country, check out its features during the spring break.
In the spring to go home pizza and jeans (yes, yes, not in America created our favorite piece of clothing) will be much cheaper than in the autumn months or summer high season. Do not play with fate – take care of booking a tour to sunny Italy in advance.
If you want to experience the Italian rhythm of life, go on a tour of small cities. In the spring, in small settlements there are many local festivals with wine exhibitions, gastronomic fairs where farmers sell eco-products, as well as flower festivals.
In early May, Umbria celebrates the Day of Spring. Songs, costume parade, traditional food, wine – looking here for an hour, you will not notice how you stayed until the evening.
German cities are an ideal place for a comfortable life and travel. Convenient transportation with a well-defined schedule, a cafe with signs of prices for top-end dishes right at the entrance, lots of parks where tourists walk and office workers, absolute cleanliness and helpful people rest. If you are planning a tour in one of the ancient cities or suburbs, it is not necessary to plan a route. Wherever you go, gorgeous architecture, traditional German houses, cobblestone streets and homemade pastry shops will meet you everywhere.
Rich entertainment is about Germany in the spring. On May 5, the Germans celebrate the Day of the Port of Hamburg: a parade of ships, fairs, a fish market with a fresh catch, salute and shows are waiting for everyone.
