Vote for Your Most Inspirational Travel Film

Have you ever… want to pack a bag and left after watch a movie? Travelers got inspired by many media – book, music, photo, and movie.  The reasons could be various; simply because want to visit the destination, life-changing experiences, find myself, desire for exotic food, adrenalin pumping activities, or romance..

The vivid and interesting places on the scene are great ingredients for desire. That is why there are so many tour programs about the destination of the movie, and it works. Just like Eat, Pray, Love tour program followed by Italy, India and Indonesia.

So, do you remember what was the most inspirational travel film for you?

If you ask me, movie ‘Up’ was my the most inspiring film of all time but that’s not on this list. 🙂

    lost in translation is one of my fav moives EVER!
    hugs my dear Juno 🙂

  2. There are some really odd choices here. The last three I think would make people not want to travel. Talented Mr. Ripley: travel and meet creepy people; Thelma & Louis: travel and get raped and mistreated; Into the Wild: travel and starve in Alaska. I would have to choose Lost in Translation although there are many other films that make me want to travel that are not on the list.
