Holidays in March
March is a perfect time of year to explore some of the world’s most beautiful mountainous landscapes and picturesque cities. Whether you are trekking in the Himalayas or lazing on a beach in India, you are sure to have an unforgettable experience. Here are some great ideas for holidays in March:
March is the best time to visit Asian countries like China and Nepal, with their beautiful mountains ‘springing’ to life.
Beginning in the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai, with its towering skyscrapers and bustling streets, you can fully immerse yourself in modern China before retiring to the countryside, gaining a rich insight into rural life on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau. Your journey will allow you to enjoy rich green terraced landscapes before reaching the incredible Great Wall of China, which weaves up the Yan Mountains like a shoelace.
Spot endangered giant pandas, cruise the Yangzi River or stand among ancient Terracotta Warriors; China offers a wonderful opportunity to combine sightseeing with a sense of adventure.
Trekking in Nepal
March is also an ideal time of the year for trekking in the Himalayas in Nepal, allowing you to experience some of the world’s most incredible snow-capped mountains.
Our Annapurna Sanctuary journey allows you to take in the spectacular scenery of the Annapurna region while taking in some the rural communities en route as well as spending time in the lakeside town of Pokhara.
India and Sri Lanka provide a perfect romantic getaway, allowing you to explore some of the world’s most endearing lands. Tour incredible palaces, laze on tropical beaches and sample exotic cuisine.
Our full Iconic India tour leaves no stone unturned taking you from Delhi in the north to Kolkata in the east, before heading south to Varkala and on to Kochi on the west coast. En route you can mingle with pilgrims in Varanasi, tour the jaw-dropping Taj Mahal, ride camels through the desert near Jaisalmer and pause for reflection with yogi meditators. A final stop in the idyllic beach town of Goa provides an ideal opportunity to relax and reflect.
Sri Lankan paradise
As an alternative to an Indian adventure, the Circle Sri Lanka trip is a comprehensive tour of the island. From ancient Anuradhapura city and the well-preserved Polonnaruwa ruins, to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and the impressive Sigiriya rock fortress. Trek through lush tea plantations, indulge in seafood feasts in quaint fishing villages and dip your toes in the calm, clear waters of Mirissa beach on this all-encompassing adventure.
North African journeys
Spring is also ideal for an adventure in Morocco, with a cooler climate giving you the opportunity to enjoy its vast desert landscapes, ancient cities and picturesque villages at their best.
Combine rich cultural experiences with a sense of romantic wilderness one can only find in the desert. Enjoy a city break, exploring the colourful markets of Fez and Marrakech, complete with snake charmers and story tellers and take a camel ride across the Sahara – there is endless variety to be found in Morocco.
