Crackling fires, misty mornings and leaves a vibrant spectrum of red, orange and yellow – if anything is guaranteed to pull us out of our end-of-summer slump, it’s the promise of autumn’s cosy weekends and kaleidoscopic beauty. But when it comes to seasonal holidays, choosing the perfect destination guaranteed to deliver those hygge vibes can be hard.
After it revealed the world’s prettiest cities to visit in summer, travel service provider Travelbag conducted a study to analyse the data behind Instagram and TikTok hashtags to unveil the locations that are at their most beautiful in the autumn. Below, we show the results for the world’s prettiest cities to visit this season.
10. Melbourne, Australia
Number of views on TikTok: 535,200
Australia’s second-biggest city is known for its style, sophistication and warm-weather allure, but Melbourne comes alive in autumn. Think thick morning fog giving way to burnt orange trees, soft, hazy light and a brisk breeze, all best enjoyed with a warm cup of coffee from one of the city’s third-wave cafés.
Where to stay: The Lyall has long been known as one of Melbourne’s best boutique hotels, but it’s the spa we love most – ideal for soaking and winding down after long, autumnal walks.
9. Miami, United States
Number of views on TikTok: 735,500
Fall in Miami is like a breath of fresh air. The summer’s sweltering temperatures give way to more bearable weather, but the shores are still perfect for long sandy strolls from South Beach to Sunny Isles.
Where to stay: Book a stay at the Faena Hotel Miami Beach for a theatrical experience – the hotel was designed by Baz Luhrmann and has a rolling schedule of evening cabaret shows.
8. Seoul, South Korea
