We're only just now beginning to think about dates. I looked at a crowd calendar and saw that 4/10-4/13 during cherry blossoms would be a low crowds time (but maybe not as warm as desired at 60's F high). We also saw that 4/24-4/27, 5/8-8/11, 5/15-5/18, and much of June were low crowds too (not as low as that 2nd week of April, but warmer). Would like to stick to between 1st and 2nd qtr, but would say that we're looking for lowest crowds as highest priority, then aspects such as pleasant weather (less rain, upper 60s to low 80s F) and Easter celebration is lower down the list. The 35th anniversary celebration ends in March. I'm not sure from a hotel/airfare cost standpoint which of these dates are best, but a glance at flights from Chicago - they were really high at up to $2k per person to add Hong Kong. Any thoughts on which dates to pick and why?
