Klook travel digest for April

With the summer holidays and Holy Week inching closer and closer, the urge to travel escalates even further! Fortunately for you, Klook has got a number of travel deals in store this April to make your travels cost-effective and of course, hassle-free!

In this month’s travel digest, we also focus in on four destinations to kickstart your summer holiday. From the final sakura blooms in Kyoto to the much-anticipated Songkran festival in Bangkok, you might just find your next adventure in these neighboring cities.

Destination Spotlight

1. Kyoto

kyoto

Neighboring the cities of Osaka and Nara, Kyoto offers visitors a peak into Japan’s rich historic past with its well-preserved temples, imperial palaces and traditional wooden houses. It is also quite known for its scenic gardens, most notably the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, and as well as the gardens surrounding the Kinkaku-ji golden temple.

During the month of March and April, the beautiful city of Kyoto gets its fair share of Cherry Blossoms from 20 March all the way to the 14th of April. So if you’re looking to escape the blistering heat, Spring in Kyoto is a great option!
