popular spring destinations

DiscoverCars.com has used data from Instagram to create a list of the top 20 most popular countries to visit in the springtime.

They created a total score for each country by adding together any hashtags related to spring or flowers, and then ranked them. 

Aleksandrs Buraks, Head of Growth at DiscoverCars.com, comments: 

“We think this top 20 is a really interesting selection of countries, each with their own spring traditions. Something we like about the list is the fact that spring in each of these countries will be a different experience, down to what time of year it falls at. If you were to visit Australia or New Zealand in spring, you’d be travelling in September to November, meaning you might get to see two springtimes in the same year!

“Given that we love cars here at DiscoverCars.com, naturally one of our favourite facts we learned was that in the Netherlands, there is a special word for taking a scenic journey through the flower fields often by car or bike – ‘Bloemenroute’.”
