Where to go on holiday in March

Technically the beginning of Spring, March brings baby lambs, the beginnings of blossom and great opportunities for discovering new destinations. It also marks one of the best times of the year to pay a visit to the United Arab Emirates,with Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Oman enjoying temperatures of over 30ºC, meaning its breakfast al fresco by the beach or on your private balcony here to maximise sun-soaking time. 9 hours of sunshine a day can also be sought in Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and Grenada, and you won't have to share the vitamin D either as the main tourist influx here is during the summer season. Spring's rosy fingers are also touching New York; an ideal time to visit the city that never sleeps as you'll avoid the extreme heat of the summer, meaning you can enjoy leisurely strolls around Central Park and up 5th Avenue without a parasol.
