The cable car ride down Mount Hiei has the most incredible panorama of the Enryaku-ji pagoda and the surrounding forest.
Sooke Lake, Victoria, British Columbia

Berlin, Germany
Taking a bike ride through Tiergarten Park is lovely during any season, but the sight of leaves falling into the Landwehr Canal is truly unparalleled.
Bogota, Colombia
The tropical city technically does not have seasons. But, these blooms on Mount Monserrate make a totally fall-appropriate bouquet.

Their Top Travel Recommendations

“Turkey can only be defined as a mosaic of culture its where the hustle and bustle of Asia meets the elegance of Europe with a Middle Eastern twist,” says Niemi. “Palawan, Philippines introduced me to the underwater world of scuba diving, some of the most breathtaking sunsets I have ever seen, and the most incredible sailing I have ever experienced.”

“Island-wise nothing beats the Maldives,” says Chai. “You literally feel like you’re a drop in the ocean there because usually at a resort all you’ll see is the sea. No neighbours, no noise, it is the ultimate idyllic island life. And the water there is akin to stepping into your own turquoise coloured pool. For me when I first went to the Maldives I thought ‘this is paradise.'”
