For all adventurers and people with wanderlust – starting late September and early October, it will be time to say farewell to summer and formally welcome the wonderful season of fall or autumn. October is a month with moderate temperatures, plenty of sunshine, and tons of travel experiences just waiting to happen. Here are some of our favorite places to explore in the month of October and during the fall season.

Haunted History in America

Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia

Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia

Often mentioned as one of America’s most haunted cities, Savannah, Georgia is an ideal destination for some Halloween-inspired weekend fun in October.

With antebellum homes flanked by moss-covered Spanish oak trees, cobblestone roads, and horse-drawn carriages, the city is full of southern hospitality and charm. Explore the mysterious and interesting history of the oldest city in the US state of Georgia. How does a late-night tour of “haunted” hotels, homes, restaurants, bars, cemeteries, and Ghost-hunting sound to you? Would you dare to go?

Birth of a Coral Reef in Australia

The Great Barrier Reef

Perhaps you have wondered what it would have been like to see the mass “spawning” of a coral reef? This natural phenomenon called the”Coral Polyps” occurs only once per year at the darkened waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Said to resemble an underwater snowstorm, the ocean bubbles with a vibrant eruption of fertilization. Make sure you pack your diving or snorkeling equipment to efficiently witness this event that happens every year following the full moon in October or November.

Did you know that the Great Barrier reef is one of the seven wonders of the world? It’s larger than the Great Wall of China and the only living thing on earth visible from space!

Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany

The famous Oktoberfest is happening over a 16-day period in Munich, Germany. It is undoubtedly among the biggest and most happening parties in the world. Attracting over six million visitors annually, it’s the only place to be in October if you are a beer lover. More than seven million liters of beer is consumed along while revelers enjoy raucous German music, amazing rustic cuisine (think meat, sauerkraut, giant pretzels, pork knuckle and all sorts of wursts) and build memories that will last a lifetime.

Truffle Hunting in Tuscany, Italy

If you’re a self-proclaimed “foodie,” I mean who isn’t guilty of that? There is no other place to be than Tuscany, Italy. Truffle season officially begins in October, and most Italian truffles can be found in north or central Italy. How amazing do fresh truffles sound?  The subterranean fungus is harvested by pigs or dogs that are trained to sniff out the highly prized gourmet delicacy. You can choose to be in the action yourself or head straight to the finish line and indulge in the deliciousness. Arrange a private guide, attend a truffle hunt, or simply reserve a truffle and wine tour while in the area! And in all honesty, if not for the truffles, what about the endless amounts of cheese, wines, cold cuts, and some of the best pizzas in the world?!

Cycling Adventure in Vietnam

Desert Safari in Dubai

Dubai Desert Safari Entertainment

Post Desert Safari Entertainment in Dubai

Among the most futuristic and interesting cities in the world, Dubai is an oasis known as one of the world’s best “sea, surf, sand and shopping” locations. Adrenalin junkies will want the greatest “sand-bashing” experience by off-roading on a 4-wheeler across the desert. Or, for someone who’s not quite into the speed, camel-back riding! There’s nothing anything quite like the thrill and excitement of sailing round endless sand dunes at a breakneck pace as you precariously climb up and slip these mountains of sand. The weather in October is at its finest and ideal for spending the afternoon out. Book a private tour or join a group for a prepackaged safari tour. Ever watched travel v-logs online from desert BBQ experiences in Dubai? I’m talking about the ones with belly dancers dancing around the sand dunes while the sun is setting and the stars come out to play.
