Few media capture the beauty of a place as well as movies. Be it the sweeping expanse of New Zealand in the Lord Of The Rings or the majestic beauty of the pyramids in The Mummy, movies continue to inspire and entertain.
Here we list down some of our favourite movies set in some of our favourite destinations. Read on.
Greece: My Big Fat Greek Wedding
As romcoms go, it’s hard to beat this breezy, light and heartwarming movie! While telling a good story Nia Vardalos, gives you a peek into Greek culture and eccentricities.
Bonus: Mamma Mia!
This 2008 comedy is one of Woody Allen’s best! Beautiful people, great food and a gorgeous ride through Spain. What more can one ask for?
Bonus: Zindagi na milegi dobara
Jordan: The Martian
Smart, funny & gorgeously shot, The Martian is an instant classic. Here’s our very own Martian in Wadi Rum!
Bonus: Lawrence Of Arabia (“vast, echoing and God-like is what he calls Wadi Rum)
Egypt: The Mummy
The mummy brought back Egypt front and center into the minds of viewers across the world. Watch for a wild ride through hidden pyramids, action packed adventure and Rachel Weisz.
Bonus: Exodus: Gods and Kings
New Zealand: The Lord of the rings
The Shire is the Shire. Only New Zealand could be the ideal setting to bring Middle Earth to life.
Bonus: Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Peru: Motorcycle diaries
As adventure movies go, it’s easy to see why Motorcycle diaries ranks high on the all time high lists. You need to see this movie!
Bonus: Burden Of Dreams
