There are many destinations that go through the transition from summer to winter quite gracefully, but here are few of the best places to travel to in October 2017.

1. Seoul, South Korea

When: September - November

Seoul is an amazing city that is a great destination all year round but come autumn, it transforms into something truly magical. Everywhere you look, trees are beginning to turn into that picture-perfect orange twinge, and the air is crisp and fresh. Around October is also when many events in Seoul come to life, including many street markets, many festivals like the Seoul Eulalia Festival and the Seoul International Fireworks Festival, and the many parks where you can witness the best of autumn foliage.

2. Tokyo, Japan

When: November – December

Tokyo is another city that everyone must visit at least once in their lifetime, and is also one of the best cities for fall travel. Some of the best places to view autumn colour (Koyo) in Tokyo include Rikugien (a Japanese landscape garden), Mount Takao, and Showa Memorial Park, but Tokyo is home to so many beautiful botanical gardens, landscapes, mountains, and streets where the best of coloured autumn foliage can be seen at.

3. Melbourne, Australia

When: March - May

Head to Melbourne this fall not just to witness autumn's cool weather and bright colours, but also to enjoy the best fall experiences from food to fashion, film, and festivals! With blue skies, coloured autumn foliage, and crisp air as your backdrop, you'll see why this is one of the best cities for fall travel. Autumn brings amazing seasonal produce, which means you're in for some top-notch local food. You can also be a part of the many events and exhibitions that take place in Melbourne in the fall, including AFL season (football), the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Australian Grand Prix, and so much more!

4. Tuscany, Italy

When: September – December

Tuscany, located near the city Florence in Italy, is another place where you can enjoy the best fall experiences. It's the ideal place for a romantic getaway with the love of your life because it offers a quiet and calm place to spend quality time while enjoying the beauty of fall. But is also close enough to the most iconic spots in France, like the Florence Cathedral and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, so you don't have to miss out on them either. Although wine is a big part of Tuscany's draw, you can still enjoy the best of the season from various types of fresh grapes, olives, and truffles.

5. Istanbul, Turkey

When: September – December

This historic city takes on autumn with ultimate grace and beauty. Seeing the amazing architecture and intricate artwork of iconic sights like the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque set against autumn coloured foliage, fall flowers, and clear skies is a treat to the eyes. Autumn is the ideal time to travel to Istanbul because the swelteringly hot days of summer are in the past and the freezing cold temperatures of winter have yet to arrive. Explore the city and enjoy the beautiful people, culture, music, architecture, and mouthwatering food!
