While every season has its beautiful features, none could be considered on-par with Fall.
No matter where you choose to go in the world, you are sure to be met with a graceful scene of orange and yellow. If you’re looking to make a memorable trip this Fall, below are five cities which should top your list of hot spots. But be sure to cover yourself in layers because the last thing you want is to catch a cold.
Dublin is a stunning place to visit at any time of the year, but it’s more so in Fall. Not only is it less crowded, but the weather proves to be mild in what is normally a seasonally volatile city.
With the peace and quiet falling upon the usually crowded streets, it’s the perfect season to meander through the streets to see what’s on offer in every nook and cranny. Enjoy the Dublin Festival Season, or why not make your way to the Irish War Memorial? It’s here that you can enjoy the eclectic mix of orange and yellow on what are normally lush, green trees.
New York City, New York
If ever there was a premium location to spend the Fall months, it’s New York City in New York. Out of the several stunning cities around the world celebrating Fall, New York City celebrates it better. From Halloween festivals and street fairs, through to pumpkin spice lattes and Cider Week, you are sure to find an event to take your fancy. Love pumpkin pie? There is no better place to get it.
In fact, New York City even celebrates OktoberFest in Central Park during Fall, as well as Cider Week, the Feast of San Gennaro and Giant Pumpkin week. It’s during Fall that children and adults alike celebrate the many things that make New York City in Fall unique.
Berlin is a premium destination for many travellers, but it holds a certain charm in the Fall.
Home to 3.7 million people, it’s not just residents that enjoy the gold and orange scattering of leaves in every direction, it’s the tourists too. Many tourists flock to make the most of the many events that take place during Fall. This is sure to include flying kites on Tempelhof Field.
Fall is when the wind gets up and people take to the streets to enjoy kite flying exercises. In fact, the former Tempelhof Airport has been the premium destination for kite flying.
You can also enjoy two light festivals and many others during Fall in Berlin.
Prague, Czech Republic
While visiting Prague in Summer is the preferred option for many tourists, it can easily be considered more desirable in Fall. While there are many exciting happenings during this time, it’s the quiet atmosphere that many travellers will appreciate. Because Fall is less desirable for travelling, it gives you the opportunity to take in the many sights and sounds you may miss when surrounded by other tourists. Just remember to pack your winter woollies!
Aside from the peace and serenity, travellers can also enjoy The Sacred Arts Music Festival through the month of September, and the ever-popular Prague music festival as well. If you choose to head to Prague during the very cold month of October, you are sure to warm up with the International Jazz Festival. While it’s no tropical paradise in Fall, it’s certain to be a popular destination for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle.
By the way, make sure to check out Prague Zoo because 2 very endangered Tigers (Malayan) were just born there.
Seoul, South Korea
Seoul in South Korea is another beautiful city that’s as glorious to visit in Summer as it is in Fall. However, if you’re not one for the hustle and bustle of popular tourist spots, visiting in Fall is your best option. While its tree-lined streets are few and far between, it does have spectacular landmarks that can only be fully appreciated in the less-populated times of year. A visit to Seoul should be on the top of your ‘to do’ list. Just remember to bring a jacket.
