Emily Williams, dnata Travel’s resident gloetrotter, takes you on a tour of the best places to visit this month
It’s the Emerald Isle’s ‘Walking Festival’ season, with organised trails taking you to multi-coloured forests and glens. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, take a themed tour from Belfast to multiple locations that have featured on the hit show. [Photo credit: Belfast City Hall, Tourism Ireland]
It’s the perfect time of year to visit South Korea’s dynamic capital. Nestled right at the heart of the city, the peak of Namsan Mountain will give you a bird’s eye view of how autumn paints Korea with a palette of breathtaking orange, yellow and crimson hues.
Home to the the Maple Leafs – one of Canada’s famous ice-hockey teams – Toronto is also a magical place to see the leaves change colour in October. There’s so much to do at this time of year, try a stroll through one of the many colourful parks or ravines, or take the two-hour drive to Niagara Falls – in autumn you can still take the boat right out to the waterfalls (you definitely can’t try this in winter).
One of the most beautiful gardens in Japan, Rikugien Garden in the heart of Tokyo is also the city’s most visited spot to see its vibrant autumn leaves. It even opens in the evenings for special illuminations during peak season.
