Joining an Asian cruise is a remarkable experience. It allows you to enjoy lots of breathtaking views in Asia and forget all your problems back home. Although a bit costly, it is an experience that is truly worth the cost.
The key is to know when to sign up for a cruise. There are certain months during the year when it would be perfect to join a cruise. Here are some tips to consider.
If you intend to embark on a cruise around Japan, you have to consider the weather and the festivals you wish to witness. In Japan, autumn runs from September through November. This is the time of the year when trees produce brilliant colours. This includes Japanese maples, ash trees and ginkos. If you wish to witness this thrilling phenomenon, head to Japan during the autumn. There are also a lot of exciting seasonal festivals around the country. Since the weather is mild, this is an ideal time of the year.
Winter runs from December to February. There is moderate snow around the country. For ski enthusiasts, this is the perfect time to join an Asian cruise in Japan. The temperature becomes lower but still tolerable. The only downside is that it is extremely busy during the New Year and you need to face crowded local transportation.
Other exciting destinations
Aside from Japan, other stops may include China, Cambodia and South Korea. All these are wonderful places with unique cultures and traditions. If you plan to head to these countries, avoid the monsoon season running from May to October. The weather can be really bad. Summer should also be avoided since it can get really hot and humid. You don’t want to sweat a lot throughout the trip. Towards the end of the year until January would be the best time since the temperature is cooler but rain is unlikely.
There are Asian cruises that go up towards Russia. If you plan to join this cruise, you need to avoid July and August. These are holiday months and the country becomes really crowded. The weather also gets really warm. The best months are May to June and September to October when there are not a lot of tourists around the country. You will also witness early autumn that brings to life fascinating mushrooms and berries that are ready for picking. Being one of the coldest places on Earth, the winter months should definitely be avoided.
