Traveling this summer often came with major sticker shock, especially for international getaways. But with the fall travel season upon us, both temperatures and prices are mellowing out, as a mix of global cities—some surprising—are arising as choice destinations.
“It’s no secret that flights have been expensive over the summer, so travelers are keen to take advantage of the non-peak prices they’re seeing for fall,” Christie Hudson, a spokesperson for Expedia, says, noting that average ticket prices for international flights are about 5 percent less than they were during peak summer periods. “The crowds are smaller and the weather is still nice—it’s the best of all those worlds.”
As family travel simmers down, this also marks the start of peak season for couples with double income and no kids (DINK), she says, and they’re searching for a different kind of trip.
“Fall travelers are culture-seekers,” Priceline’s Consumer Travel Trend Expert Christina Bennett says. “Both abroad and at home, they are opting for major cities that offer dining, museums, entertainment, and nightlife. From Las Vegas and Los Angeles to Tel Aviv and Tokyo, travelers want to explore the best the world has to offer at off-peak prices.”
Kayak’s consumer travel trends expert Kayla Inserra concurs: “We’re seeing travelers are increasingly drawn to culturally-rich and diverse destinations like Tokyo, Taipei, and Osaka which are the top trending destinations we’re seeing for fall travel this year.”
Here are seven destinations that are seeing surges in interest from travelers this fall, according to data from travel search sites.
Savannah doesn't just offer great food and deep history, it's also a favorite Halloween season.
While Savannah’s temperate climate makes it an enticing year-round destination, there’s something special in the city come fall when the breeze from the coast mingles with the warm daytime temperature that still reach highs in the 80s, but drop to an autumnal crispness after the sun sets.
The southern city topped Expedia’s list of trending domestic destinations, growing 155 percent from earlier this year. “Savannah is a fantastic late-fall destination,” Hudson says. “The city has tons of history and amazing food." For fright-seekers, the Halloween season pairs perfectly with the city’s folklore and urban legends, with Hudson suggesting booking one of the highly-rated Bonaventure Cemetery tours or Genteel and Bard’s Savannah Dark History and Ghost Encounter tours.
Japanese cities like Tokyo and Osaka are on everyone's bucket list this fall.
Perhaps the most popular destination—popping up on Booking.com, Expedia, Kayak, and Priceline’s lists—is Japan. Osaka showed a 210 percent growth trend on Expedia compared to

How did you become both a monk and makeup artist?My father is a monk and I was born in a temple in Tokyo. My parents never forced me to become one, and for a long time I didn’t want to — I was more interested in Disney princesses. I studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York, where I assisted a makeup artist. In Japan, if I looked at a makeup counter, they’d ask if I was buying a gift for my girlfriend. But in the US, male clerks would slay makeup looks. I began wearing eyeliner and mascara, and I started my Instagram [where he shares makeup looks]. Once I finished studying, I decided to train as a monk. I hated the concept of Buddhism at the time, but my mum, who’s a pianist, told me, “If you want to criticise a composition by Mozart, you need to study it; only then can you say what you don’t like.” I needed to know what being a monk entailed, otherwise I couldn’t judge.
On Monday Japan Airlines unveiled its much-anticipated new cabin interiors on board its forthcoming Airbus A350-1000 planes. When the first of the 13 new aircraft begins rolling out at the end of 2023, it will launch on the carrier’s route between New York JFK and Tokyo Haneda and be designated the airline’s flagship jet for other international flights.
Just days after announcing plans for its largest-ever schedule for flights from the U.S. to Europe next year, Delta Air Lines revealed it would cut flights to six major cities in the coming months, starting in October.
The first time I was introduced to a Japanese workout routine called Radio Taiso was on a trip to Japan in 2020. Radio Taiso is translated as "radio calisthenics," and it's based on a public-radio broadcast that began in 1928 in Japan.
When it comes to premium cabins, most of the innovation happens in the Asia-Pacific region (including the Middle East). This is where most premium airlines are, and they all want the big money customers.
It's been just a year since Japan reopened its borders to international travel after the pandemic. But tourism has rebounded in ways almost no one could have predicted, setting up a potentially record-breaking 2024.
The first thing to know about sake is that describing it can be as difficult as deciphering the label. It very much stands alone in terms of production style and flavour, meaning comparisons fall short. It’s often described as rice wine — rice is one of its key ingredients and it has a similar alcohol content to its grape-based cousin, but tastes nothing like it and is actually brewed more like a beer. Despite looking and tasting a little like a spirit, its typical alcohol content of 18% to 20% means it isn’t categorised as one. Even if you speak Japanese, its description is vague. Sake, or o-sake as it’s also called, simply means ‘alcohol’. What we in the West know as sake is called nihonshu (Japanese alcohol) in Japan, but is also labelled as seishu. It’s a complex lexicon that adds to sake’s seemingly undefinable intrigue.
Over the past 12 months, I have experienced six different international business class products thanks to my job as Insider's aviation reporter. And — among this particular bunch — I've found that none of them are like the other.
In every corner of Japan, there are echoes of Ghibli film settings. The country’s most successful anime studio launched in 1985, and its films have become emblematic of Japan’s offbeat, inventive character. It’s no surprise the opening of the Ghibli Park in November 2022 proved so popular. Tickets are released three months in advance but, almost a year on, they’re still like gold dust due to high domestic demand. There are no rides at the park either. Instead, it’s been designed as a place to “take a stroll, feel the wind, and discover the wonders”, according to its founders.
