Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto, which was voted the best city in the world twice in a row by Travel + Leisure, features incredible food and incredible temples, but the real showstopper is its fall foliage. The bright red leaves around Daigoji Temple will take your breath away. There's even a Japanese equivalent to leaf peeping called momijigari , or "red leaf hunting."

Fall is the perfect season to visit the walkable city of Budapest. Not only does the city come alive with vibrant colors, but the temperatures can stay above 70 Fahrenheit until the end of October.

Even better, known as the "City of Baths" thanks to its rich spa heritage (introduced by the Romans), Budapest offers plenty of opportunities to unwind in stunning, thermal baths, which are said to have healing powers.

Vermont is the holy grail of autumn colors in the east as it is almost 80% forest. In fact, local newspapers even track the foliage. This 220-mile route dissects almost the entire state, meandering across sloping mountains, dipping valleys, green pastures, farmlands and forests, all ablaze in shades of yellow, orange, and red.

While beautiful year-round, this is a fall foliage fave (for its epic dogwood, sourwood, sassafras and poplar), and might get packed during the autumn months. The 470-mile parkway goes from North Carolina's Great Smoky Mountain National Park to Shenandoah National Park and Virginia's Skyline Drive, passing through dozens of beautiful hardwood forests, Appalachian mountain towns, pristine lakes, pastoral highlands and hot spots like Asheville.
