With the Covid-19 pandemic and its attendant issues in the rearview, it’s time to book a flight for a summer vacation. May is one of the best times to travel, the weather is glorious, and the summer crowd isn’t in place yet. To cultivate some ideas on where you should go, Sun Air Jets has gathered a list of some of the best places to visit in May–specifically countries. We’ll uncover why we think you should see them and fun activities you can engage in!
Visiting France at the tail end of spring and the cusp of summer provides picturesque scenery for visitors. Everyone knows that France is the bastion of fashion globally, so you are sure to enjoy yourself shopping.
If you are a wine lover, visiting France in May will be a treat because their vineyards are in the harvest season. The glorious weather allows you and your partner to take romantic strolls through the streets or enjoy delicious French cuisine in cafes. Instead of doing the usual things like visiting the Eiffel Tower, you could head to the French countryside and enjoy rustic activities like cheese and winemaking? Or you could take boat rides on the majestic River Seine.
If you are thinking of staying in Paris, you should visit the Louvre for its magnificent works of art or experience firsthand what French elegance and luxury look like by visiting the French Riviera. No matter where you decide to visit in France, you are sure to enjoy your stay and hope to revisit next May.
When you think of vacationing in Great Britain, you either think of England or the Scottish Highlands. For many people, the Southwestern part of the British Islands is still a mystery. Wales specifically is a beautiful experience.
In May, the temperature in most of Wales is between 6 to 15 degrees Celsius, with clear skies and less rain. Fantastic weather to undertake hikes through the country’s rugged terrain. Unlike France, Wales is more suited to the outdoorsy tourist who would like to explore the various castles like the Cardiff, Conwy, and Beaumaris Castles.
Additionally, you can take walks through the various pebbled beaches or visit the Great Pit National Coal Museum in Torfaen to experience a real coal mine that was in operation for around a century. Apart from the castle in Conwy, you can also walk around the walled town. A walk through any of Wales’ towns like Cardiff or Anglesey will show you just how much of an industrial hub Wale was during Britain’s industrial revolution.
If you are interested in hiking, you are in luck. Snowdonia National Park combines nature, wildlife, and a touch of human existence. The park boasts unique wildlife living harmoniously with rail tracks, beautiful lakes, and bushes. Visit Wales to experience the rugged beauty of Britain. Relive history, and enjoy nature in a way only Wales can offer.
Leaving Europe, let us talk about some other beautiful places. An island country located in Africa boasts of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Though May is the winter season in Mauritius, the tropical climate still ensures an average temperature of 27⁰C.
The clear skies and the warm weather combine to ensure beautiful warm beaches ideal for the various water sports available on Mauritius beaches.
Apart from having fun at the beach, you visit the Bois Cheri Tea Plantation. It’s the first tea plantation in Mauritius, and it is one of the stops on the Mauritius Tea Route. Another fun activity is kite surfing and scuba diving. Furthermore, stop by and explore the beautiful Bella Mare.
For more extreme water sports, you could go cave sea kayaking at Albion Cove. You could also sign up for a luxury yacht ride. Nature lovers aren’t left out. A hike through the Mauritius National Botanical Garden is a thrill. Finally, you can’t visit Mauritius without visiting Tamaris Bay and watching the dolphins.
Australian West Coast
Australia is a continent with different climatic conditions at other times of the year. So it’s impossible to tell you the best time to visit Australia. However, we are concentrating on the western coast of Australia, which includes the Ningaloo Reef, Perth, and Exmouth.
Exmouth and Ningaloo Reef exhibit the wild side of Australia. The weather in May makes shark sightings a certainty in Exmouth. May is also the time for the Whale Shark Festival in Exmouth, where you get to swim with sharks (it’s an exhilarating experience) and see various colorful parrots, emus, and kangaroos.
Also, you should visit Kimberly to experience waterfall picnics, swim in their beautiful lakes, and check out amazing rock formations. If you are interested in passive tourism, visiting parks, and shopping at various malls, Perth is the place for you. No matter how you choose to spend your May vacation on the Australian West Coast, we are sure you will find something that will interest you.
Our last pick is the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan. Japan is one of the few countries that has successfully blended its history with changes due to advancing technology. Japan has a global reputation for technological innovations and industries, and it is home to several automobile giants.
You might be wondering why you should vacation in Japan, and it’s simple. In May, the spring season transforms Japan into a land of natural beauty. The cherry blossom season starts in April and extends to May. Apart from a picnic amidst the blossoms, you and the family can have fun at the Tokyo Disney Park. Or visit the various temples in Kiyomizu-Ji and the serenity, lakes, and lake houses of Kinkaku-Ji. This is why Japan is one of our favorite places to visit in may
