LONDON--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2012) - 20 March marks the Spring Equinox this year, when the sun rises exactly in the east and remains in the sky for 12 hours, setting directly in the west. Cheapflights.co.uk, the UK's online leader in flight deals publishing, has put together the best images of the Equinox from around the world.
GMT +12 hours: Fiji
Right on the 180-degree longitude line, Fiji is one of the first places to see the sun rise every day. Follow an intoxicating sunrise up with a morning exploration; the "soft coral capital of the world" also offers some of its best scuba diving.
GMT +7 hours: Siem Reap, Cambodia
Angkor Wat at sunrise offers spectacular views. The preserved temple attracts travellers to Cambodia from all over the world. Dedicate more than a day to exploring the sacred grounds -- and start one of those days before dawn!
GMT +3 hours: Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is on practically every adventure traveller's to-do list. With the enormous undertaking comes a chance to see one of the most enchanting sunrises -- 19,341 feet above sea level.
GMT -7 hours: Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA
Some of the most impressive sunrises in the continental United States occur every day across the Grand Canyon. Arguably America's greatest natural wonder, the Grand Canyon isn't limited to a single best place to see the sunrise, but Maricopa, Hopi, Mather points and the South Rim all offer stunning views.
GMT -12 hours: Hawaii, USA
There can't be a more perfect spot to watch the sunrise in Hawaii than from above the clouds, on the top of a volcano. Various van tours offer the 3am trip through Haleakala National Park in Maui to see the event from the summit. Or enjoy the equally stunning view from one of Hawaii's many white sand beaches.
