Movies can take us places. It’s true that great acting can make or break a film, but another key role is location. The Beach, staring Leonardo DiCaprio is a great example. The Phi Phi islands in southern Thailand are absolutely stunning and seeing them on the big screen not only made me want to go, but also enhanced my dream of visiting other remote locales around the world. What makes a great Travel Film? One with adventure, exploration, self discovery? There are many out there but here are some of my personal favorites. Feel free to add some of yours below.
