It depends. If you're talking astronomical, as MeNoTalk says, it's from the equinox (mid-March) to the solstice (mid-June). However, the temperatures don't necessarily reflect that. You can still experience cold snaps and snow in the north right through much of April as well, while to many, the south (Texas, Florida) will be nice and warm already. It's ...

Yes, these were for the Indian festival 'Holi', the festival of colours. It is the one of the most important festival in India and is celebrated by playing with colours (people put variuos colours on each other, it is fun). Coincidently, March 17, 2014, your travel day was the day Holi fell in 2014 (The Indian festivals are mostly dependent on lunar ...

So it'll depend a little on WHERE in Japan you want to go, as due to climate conditions, they bloom at slightly different times. A regularly updated forecast for this year can be found in a nice chart online: (source) The same page includes the average bloom times for each location in another chart below. The blossoms may start in April, but they're ...

Layers. Bring several. The average temperatures you quote are very misleading. Two years ago I was there in July and, while I would concur with the average, temperatures varied between 4C and 20C. That means that I used a thin long-sleeve top and was slightly hot around noon and was quite cold with a jacket, sweater plus long-sleeve top at night. Light ...

Usually May is a peak season because of the summer in the Philippines. Many people go to Boracay or Bagiuo. Bagiuo is the best place to go because of the cool area. It is colder than most places in the Philippines. Should you book a room in advance? Well it depends what you are planning to do and where. Booking in advance gives you usually a better price ...

The weather in south it is often wet and windy, the north slightly less so, but can get some nasty cold spells, although it shouldn't be too extreme in July. For going high up in the mountains or travelling in the mid-interior you would need of course to be prepared for much lower temperatures and sometimes extreme weather. The main thing to think about is ...

Using the Wikipedia weather history of Kyoto and the current weather forecast (as of mid-november 2013), one can figure that between mid-November and mid-December one could expect temperature between 5 and 20°C (low and high of each day), with possible extremes of 0 to 25°C. This is pretty imprecise since it could vary every year, but in 2013 this seems ...

You've essentially asked where is it dry except where it's dry? Galapagos and coastal provinces are usually dry around this time of the year. The rest of the country expects moderately rainy weather in March which means a higher probability of rain. You may be lucky some days, while others not. Jungle trips are possible and you should expect rain there any ...

The majority of Japan's major cities (Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Hiroshima, Fukuoka etc) are located on the half of the country that faces the Pacific Ocean. The climate in most these areas is similar and so most tend to hit full bloom around the first weekend of April. You can see them coming into full bloom for about a week before this date, and losing ...

I live in Edinburgh and in August I'm sweating if I go out wearing jeans in the daytime, especially if it's sunny but often even if not. I'd advise wearing thin/loose trousers and a T-shirt, then take several layers (thin jumper and maybe a waterproof of some kind) so you can layer up if the wind picks up or it begins to rain. A light waterproof jacket is ...

Late at evening on May 31st I searched for free rooms in Baguio, for two nights, arrival on June 1st (a Sunday). Booking.com found 14 hotels having rooms available priced under 50 euros a night. Agoda.com found about 40 hotels having rooms available priced under 50 euros a night. These sites together had also at least ten places offering rooms for less ...

Of sorts, Ulverston has a large Christmas market every year, called the Ulverston Dickensian Christmas Festival. It has grown quite large over the years, and takes in most of the central streets of the town. Quite a few locals (I'm one) dress up in Dickensian attire, and get into the spirit of things. I think you could safely say the market has German ...
