I get stuck in the rut on where and when to plan for my next big travel adventure so one tip, I usually turn to movies to give me great ideas and of course, who wouldn’t be tempted by the beautiful sceneries shot on the wide screen.
Lost in Translation
The romantic quirky film surrounded by neon blinding light of fascinating Tokyo, combined with Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, what’s there not to love?
Fast cars, pretty young girls, great action with a simple story plot that is easy to follow. Story follows a teenager becomes a major competitor in the world of drift racing after moving in with his father in Tokyo to avoid a jail sentence in America. As the cars speed by, you get the enchanting Tokyo in action.
New York, America
The bubbly girl can sing! With a star performance by veteran actors like Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx (I didn’t know he can sing too!), it brings a refreshing take to the old but classic play and a new insight to New York.
The Da Vinci Code
The modern day Indiana Jones, solving the world’s puzzle while avoiding capture by the bad and the good guys, and showcasing London’s finest at the same time.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
One thing I love about Mission Impossible and James Bond are the introduction of gorgeous cities all over the world. I just love how Vienna is shot beautifully over the action pack scene especially in front of the Vienna State Opera House.
A Hologram for the King
Although the story is based on Saudi Arabia, the background of the movie is filmed in Morocco, presenting some of the beautiful and breath-taking desert sights.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Another action packed film but with a unique and interesting storyline, one that took me by pleasant surprise as the film spans over the romantic views of what Italy has to offer.
Hitman: Agent 47
This movie got all the people living in the tiny country excited because it mainly based its movie in Singapore.
