For many people, the end of October means one things: Halloween. A time to play to our fantasies or alter-egos and dress up in scary, sexy and silly costumes; to carve jack-o-lanterns and go trick-or-treating; to gorge ourselves on candy and scare ourselves with creepy tales and horror movies. While this version of Halloween is decidedly American, you can find spooky places to spend the holiday all around the world.
This week, we’re getting into the Halloween spirit by revisiting some our favorite scary travel stories. We’ll take a look at some of the most gruesome travel horror stories and where they took place, suggest some ghostly tours to take around the world, and offer 13 great places to celebrate the holiday.
