My Thailand recommendation is that rather than limiting yourself solely to Bangkok (down 40%) you also head north, rent a scooter, and explore the streets of Chiang Mai. October marks the end of the rainy season and thus kicks off the ideal temperate weather for visiting this mountainous region, but if you’re looking for air that’s even brisker you’re very much in luck: It is now Northern Lights season (at least, now is the best time to see them), which means Reykjavik (down 42%) is an ideal city to top this list, both as its own destination and as a jumping-off point for exploring the rest of Iceland. You probably knew this was a great time to go because all of your friends are going, or else they’ve been already. Don’t be the only friend who hasn’t been to Iceland.
