From Paris to Kyoto, here are some of the best places to see autumn colours at their finest.
Ever thought Paris couldn't be any more romantic? Visit Jardin des Tuileries in Autumn. Situated between the Louvre and Place de Concorde, a stroll though the multiplicity of glowing, deciduous trees and falling acorns is the perfect addition to a crisp autumnal evening. Visit Versailles for an even larger dose of fall foliage. The créme de la créme of French gardens, Versailles in autumn is like a vibrant watercolour painting.
Home to some of the most iconic autumn colours, New York is brimming with sumptuous golden leaves. With delicate hues of red, green and yellow, this city simply outdoes itself in autumn. Visit its grandiose landmarks in the cool autumn sun without the hoardes of tourists for a tranquil autumn break.
This sublime country continues to radiate beauty in autumn. Visit the alchemy of the Hraunfossar waterfalls, also known as the lava falls. With burnt orange leaves blanketing the landscape and contrasting starkly with the moody blue waters, this picturesque scene evokes an enigmatic image of lava on water.
Autumn in Kyoto is magical. See the colours of imari in all their vibrance at the Daigo-ji Temple. Nestled among roaring red maple trees, a quaint matching bridge and a mirror lake dressed in fallen ruby leaves, Kyoto is the most enchanting place to witness fall foliage.
With golden leaves blending with the burnt-orange undertones of the city, Prague embraces a new palette of beauty in autumn. With charming cobblestone streets enriched with ruby-hued rooftops, Prague's beauty is surreal. Go apple picking through the orchards, tickle your tastebuds with a pumpkin spice latte and chomp on a household favourite gingerbread cookie. Prague is a delight in the fall.
The best city for leaf peeping, Amsterdam turns into a whimsical fairytale at autumn. With a golden carpet of crunchy leaves lining the banks of the canals and bountiful foliage glowing in canary yellow, Amsterdam has a magical aura. Embrace the harvest by indulging in a signature chocomel and warm apple pie in a Dutch delicatessen, and bike ride through the parks shadowed with vibrant red and orange trees. Forget spring, Amsterdam blossoms in autumn.
Love Harry Potter? Visit this ancient woodland in Gloucestershire to experience a magical ensemble. With grand, beautiful trees shedding mounds of spice-coloured leaves and mixtures of oak, beech and sweet chestnut filling the air with a nutty aromas, the Forest of Dean is the perfect spot for a bit of plodding in the autumn daylight.
