Whether it’s a metropolitan setting or a life-changing adventure, movies often inspire people to visit a destination. Intrepid Travel’s blog Journal recently posted a few that might make you yearn for a vacation.
For example, “Midnight in Paris,” might have you packing your bags for the City of Light soon enough.
“There’s some pretty fierce competition when it comes to Paris, but 'Midnight in Paris' kind of nails it. There’s nostalgia, bohemia, Paris by night, Paris by day, Hemingway, Marion Cotillard! All of the beauty,” writes Eliza Gower.
For those who are more adventurous, “Into the Wild” could inspire your inner backpacker — or maybe you just really want to go to Alaska.
“This could go one of two ways really. If you ignore the ending (which we won’t spoil), this film pretty much captures everything that is beautiful about youth, nature, human connection and adventure. And really, is there a place in this world more utterly gorgeous than Alaska?” says Gower.

“The Beach” is an iconic coming-of-age tale and conveniently features some pretty stunning footage of Thailand.
“'The Beach' is at once the single best and single worst thing that ever happened for Thai tourism. Phi Phi has certainly had its share of over-zealous tourism since the movie was released in 2000. Unsurprising, though, it’s a pretty spectacular place,” says Gower.
