Fall Travel 2018: See the World’s Fall Foliage

As the intense heat of the summer simmers down, it is time to travel again. Here are 5 destinations for the fall travel 2018:

5. Bangkok & Northern Thailand

Fall travel in Southeast Asia is highly discouraged as it is the height of rainy season. It rains daily and typhoons pass through about once a week or so. However, in Bangkok and Northern Thailand, the rains tend to dissipate towards November making this the ideal time to visit these areas before the December holiday crowds.

Aside from the natural surroundings, don’t miss New England’s quaint small towns full of architecture and tradition.
