We all have a travel bucket list full of destinations that we want to visit at least once. Many times these destinations that we are so eager on visiting were given to us by our favorite Bollywood movies. It is not very often that we are treated by movies that open our souls to the experiences offered by visiting new places, that’s why we bring to you a list that you should watch if you are looking to redefine your travel bucket list.
1. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011)
One of the most popular travel movies to come out in this decade, ZNMD has single-handedly managed to make Spain a famous movie location for Indians. Apart from introducing us to a ton of new destinations, the movie also featured 3 distinct activities - deep-sea diving, sky-diving, and the oh-so-popular Tomatina festival; all things that are now staples among the bucket lists of travel and adventure enthusiasts in India.
2. Dil Chahta Hai (2001)
Dil Chahta Hai has made the ever-popular beaches of Goa, one of the most popular destinations to travel to for the Indian youth and is definitely one of the popular bollywood shooting locations. Apart from showcasing the beaches, it also showed us the real Goa and that it is also a fine place for road trips.
3. Dil Dhadakne Do (2015)
Shot on a cruise ship that docks at multiple foreign locales like Turkey, Spain, and Tunisia, this movie is guaranteed to make you long for a vacation even if you are already on one. Beautiful ocean for days at end? Count us in!
4. Jab We Met (2007)
From foreign locales and cruise ships, we come back to the most preferred method of travel in India - trains. As the story of the movie progresses, the story follows the characters through Ratlam, Kota, Bhatinda, Manali, and Simla. The whole movie is a giant detour that is caused because Kareena Kapoor happens to miss her train at the beginning of the movie.
6. Anjaana Anjaani (2010)
The lead pair of the movie want to end their lives but they decide to live a little before that. In order to do so, they decide to take a road trip from New York to Las Vegas. Needless to say, the stop-overs they make and the roads they take are nothing short of spectacular.
7. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995)
Raj and Simran meet on a trip to Europe and fall in love while traveling to a bunch of different places. In the second half of the movie, they work towards making their love story success in the mustard fields of Punjab. May it be Punjab or the international destinations of Europe, this movie has been setting major travel goals for the past 25 years!
