Ahhhh. Autumn. The time of year when the air begins to cool, the leaves begin to change color, and the days become shorter.
At least in some places. In regions such as Northern Vietnam, autumn is most synonymous with the end of rice season. The fields turn a brilliant gold/yellow and villagers take to the paddies in droves to harvest the crop.
Hanoi and Halong Bay are at their loveliest during this time of year. Deep, clear blue skies. Fresher temperatures. The perfect elements for touring.
In Cambodia and Myanmar, autumn marks the end of rainy season, which means everything is lush and green and alive. And as with Northern Vietnam, temps are a bit cooler. For travelers with a hankering for adventure tours, there may not be a better part of the world to visit during fall.
Have no qualms with having to bundle up but maybe want to experience a different culture altogether? Look no further than tradition-rich Japan, which is breathtaking during autumn for its koyo (colorful leaves).
Credit the country’s abundance of maple trees, especially in places like Kyoto and Hokkaido, which year after year attract sweater-and-coat-clad local tourists who embrace autumn’s “magic.”
