In April, our body, tired for the winter, insists on a rest. I want to throw everything and fly to the sea, to a warm country, where the sun shines and the waves come upon the shore. Where to go in April not to make a mistake with the weather and not to spend too much abroad?
Do I need a visa?

Going on vacation abroad without a visa, shielding yourself from unnecessary hassle, is quite realistic. A number of countries accept foreign guests even without a passport. But only in Abkhazia you can rest on the sea. However, the Black Sea coast has long become commonplace, and I want something more exotic. And the sea is still cold – only 15 °.
Where to go in April without a visa? The list of countries is extensive. Consider options from nearby resorts, where you can go on weekends, and ending with distant overseas countries.
Look for hot trips on the Onlinetours and Travelata search engines. With the help of these sites you can compare offers from more than 120 tour operators at a time . Read the secrets of finding the best deals on tour.

Looking for a cheap vacation in April? Turkey is not a bad option. The country is just getting ready for the holiday season. There are few people, the hotels are half-empty, and you can have a rest in a comfortable room on a budget. Tourists are attracted by cheap all-inclusive tours – from 33,500 rubles for two. Again, you can fly to Turkey and without a visa.
If you are not bored with winter, and you are planning to go skiing and snowboarding, go to the mountains. In Turkey is very decent “skiing”. The snow cover is firm in March, but alpine skiing is possible in April. Where to go? Best of all in Uludag or Palandoken. But here, too, in mid-spring, the snow melts, skiing becomes unsafe, and the slopes are closed.
Beach holidays in April even for the hardened tourist will be a serious challenge: the water is only 17 °, the air 21 °. The only thing left is to sunbathe by the sea. The warmest weather in Fethiye, where the water gets up to 19-21 °, and in late April the daytime temperature reaches 23-25 °.
Those who can not stand the summer heat and dreams to get acquainted with the culture of the east, it is time to go on excursions inland or in Istanbul. Monuments of ancient Rome, Byzantium, the Ottoman Empire will take you to the distant past. History buffs will love it.
