Japan is known for its beautiful sceneries, aesthetic culture and appetizing food. Hokkaido is located in the north-most of Japan’s main islands and is the second largest island of the country. It is famous for high quality seafood, fresh air, greenery and milk (that’s true! Hokkaido’s milk costs more than other prefectures). From pleasing nature to the extraordinary city life, you’ll get it all here.

When should you visit?

The best time to visit Hokkaido is in spring and autumn. You can enjoy hot springs and skiing in winter, and festivals in summers. Cherry blossoms, another famed attraction, are there in the spring season, from March to May.

Jeju Island, Korea

I am sure you’ve heard this name while watching K-dramas, or simply if you’re a fan of Korean culture, Jeju island is the hideaway location for many tourists, including Koreans as well. It’s the largest South Korean island, whose waterfalls, museums (high-fives to all the museums lovers out there!), caves, gardens and foliage is prominent.

When should you visit?

End of spring and early summer is ideal for a vacation. You can catch some cherry blossoms in spring and festivals in summer. Although winter might be suitable for people looking to have fun in the cold weather with cheaper accommodations and lesser crowds, we do recommend checking packages before. Make sure to visit the teddy bear museum (and take lots of pictures)!

Kauai, Hawaii

When should you visit?

Early spring is the best for visiting this island. You can discover small waterfalls as you roam around, and enjoy their traditions as a part of their culture.

Ever observed the moai emoji, or better known as the ‘stone emoji’ and wondered what they actually stand for? Well, this island is full of them! Counting nearly 900 moai, human faced statues created by inhabitants during the 13th-16th century, Rapa Nui, better off as Easter island, is famous for its archeological attractions and culture. Even though it’s hard to locate it on a map, it has a little over 1000,000 visitors annually. 

When should you visit?

Most tourists prefer January to March, end of winter and early spring. Since it has no pollution problem, star gazing is an ideal activity there!

 Ōkunoshima Island or Rabbit Island, Japan

From Sea to Scenery-  7 Magnificent Islands You Need To Add To Your Travel List

In the Seto Inland sea, with a width of only 800 metres, this island is famous for being a breeding ground for rabbits. You can play with the bunnies, visit museums (poison gas museum is recommended since it shows the history of this island), take a dip at the beach, or stargaze while camping (with the darling bunnies, of course).

When to visit?

Early mornings are the best time for a good photoshoot, and late spring to late autumn is an ideal time to visit. The bunnies get a little tired during winters.

Pro tip- maintain your distance with the rabbits until a caretaker is with you. These animals may get scared, and may carry harmful diseases.

Vulcan Point, Philippines

So, an island in the lake, in an island in the lake, in an island? Yes! This place is as exciting as it sounds. Located on the Luzon island in the Philippines, this special island was formed mainly due to volcanic eruptions. It slowly but surely took the form of a beautiful landmass. You can visit the centre lake for a glamorous view, and enjoy flowers blooming as you make your way. 

When to visit?

The dry season, usually from early winters in November to mid-spring in April, is the favourite time for tourists. Make sure to ask about the ride to this island before, since the seats can be full from the Philippines.

The Azores, Portugal

Whales, nature and farms? This island truly has all the things for a perfect vacation. A good choice for hikers and cave-craziers, Azores is a popular spot for a nature lover as well. Diving here is said to be a memorable experience, and aquatic life is highly protected, a good practice so that we can also enjoy the shows. 

When to visit?

Summer is preferred by the people visiting Azores. It is better to live that beach lifestyle during hot days!
