April in Rome
With the weather that little bit cooler, a visit to Rome's most famous sites - like the Forum and the Coliseum - will be a little more comfortable. Then there's the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica to see, before you nip round the corner to the Gelateria dei Gracchi for an ice cream. The 21st April is also Rome's birthday, which the city celebrates in style with parades, parties and fireworks. We'd expect nothing less.Find out more Or how about Cambodia?
April in Cambodia
Cambodia celebrates New Year - or "Chaul Chnam Thmey" - in April. So while some of the more touristy sites will be closed from 13th to 17th, the street parties (and water fights) will definitely make up for it. With the temperatures staying hot and the rainy season not starting until May, this is the ideal time to hit the white sand beaches of Sihanoukville. Sightseeing can be done, but just be aware that days trekking around the temples might be a bit harder in the heat.Find out more Or how about New Orleans?
April in New Orleans
Welcome to the jazz capital of the world. You can't come to New Orleans without seeing a live gig, and although the most famous haunts are on Bourbon Street, anywhere around the French Quarter will do the job nicely. In April, boiled crawfish is in season - a local delicacy along with fried chicken and gumbo. Mardi Gras might have passed in February, but rest assured - there's always a party going on in New Orleans, and expect parades and street gatherings to celebrate Easter.Find out more Or how about somewhere else?
