“Game of Thrones” is back, hopefully giving us definitive closure on Jon Snow’s death status, Daenerys Targaryen’s Dothraki walkabout and Sansa’s escape from peril.
Or, you know, there will be far more questions mounting along with far more characters’ deaths.
Thankfully, you can alleviate yourself of the TV anxiety with various vacations around the world that celebrate what is arguably the best show on television at the moment.
With its massive popularity, it’s understandable that myriad travelers would flock to the shooting locations around the world.
As The Guardian reported back in 2014, Osuna saw its town enjoy a surge in tourism interests precisely because of its cameo on the hit show.
Osuna Television’s Manuel Villar even explained that a drought caused some concern of its olive industry. But Villar adds, “Who would have thought that Game of Thrones would save us?”
If you have a hankering for Spanish hospitality, Andalucia.com has a great breakdown of the various sights you might enjoy in Osuna.
Or you can always head to the bullring, which was used in the show as Daznak’s Pit.

The showrunners have spread the love all over the globe, including Malta, which you will recognize as the home of The Red Keep.
Viator also has a list of tours inspired by various characters you can consider here.
For example, the Tyrion Lannister adventure is as you would expect: copious amounts of alcohol.
Viator states: “Led by two professional musicians, this tour includes stops at some of Dublin's most iconic pubs that could themselves be part of the GoT backdrop and frequented by Tyrion with names like Temple Bar, Oliver St. John Gogarty's and Isoldes Tower.”
Tourism Ireland continues to ballyhoo its ties to “Game of Thrones” on its website, offering up captivating images with the locations you can find your very own GoT experience.
Travel company Zicasso also touts a Game of Thrones Season 6 tour of Spain, offering stops in Barcelona, Costa Brava, Valencia and more.
Essentially, you aren’t exactly hurting if you are in serious need of a GoT vacation. This show’s reach is tremendous, leaving a great deal of tourism opportunities in its wake.
