Fall Foliage Destinations Around the World

The U.S. northeast and northwest aren’t the only places to see the leaves change color. In fact, the phenomenon takes place around the world. 

The Daily Meal has some suggestions for those who want to travel farther afield to watch the leaves change, starting with Bavaria, Germany, which offers up more than Oktoberfest in the fall. 

“After downing beer steins for a few days, take a break from the urban atmosphere of Munich and get some fresh air in one of the smaller rural towns elsewhere in the state,” they say.

If you find yourself in the Jiuzhaigou Valley in China’s Sichuan Province during the fall, you are in for a treat, says the Daily Meal

“The skies are clear, the leaves are changing, and the endless number of lakes, ponds, and waterfalls reflect the colors and make the whole scene look like a painting,” notes the publication. 

St. Petersburg, Russia, is another far-flung destination to see the leaves change color.

“Sure, the temperatures are dropping and the amount of daylight is waning, but most of the tourists are gone at this point, leaving you to enjoy the bright golden leaves without having to fight for an undisturbed photo,” says the Daily Meal. 

For more destinations around the world that come alive with color in the fall, go here.
