Best places to visit in April holidays

Southern Europe is one of the best places to visit in April. Sunnier, mild weather heralds the start of activity holidays in Montenegro, yoga retreats in Spain, and walking in Italy. It's also the beginning of small ship cruise season. Southeast Asia is a good bet, too: perhaps visiting orangutan sanctuaries in Borneo or seeing the cherry blossom in Japan.
