Georgia

Mid-April is a great time to visit Georgia as the weather turns sunny and mild. This is the perfect time to wander the capital Tbilisi at leisure, hike the stunning scenery of the lowlands through gorgeous wildflowers and celebrate an Orthodox Easter at one of the many beautiful churches here. In addition to Valentine's Day, Georgians also celebrate Love Day on the 15th April, which is marked in much the same way.

Lebanon

Lebanon is a great year-round destination to visit, but the most beautiful time to visit Lebanon is in the spring, when the country is carpeted in flowers. It's dry and temperatures are comfortable, potentially reaching up to 25 degrees by the coast and up to 15 degrees in the mountainous regions, so prepare for both if you're travelling around. Be sure to get outdoors and enjoy the gorgeous weather!

Despite it being the shoulder season, it might be a little more crowded around this time depending on where you are.
