by Travelbag on 22 April 2016, 15:04PM

Following on from part 1, we continue with the 2nd half of our top travel films for instant escapism.

Lost in Translation (2004)

Japan Travelbag

Location: Japan 

Set in Tokyo, the city and their alienation within the city, is a great representation of the main characters lives. The stark difference between the calm, peaceful hotel and the hustle and bustle of the city will also show you why people love a city break in Tokyo. If that doesn’t induce the Japanese Wanderlust then some of the filming locations will: Heian Shrine, Ryoan-Ji Temple, Rainbow Bridge, the list could go on.


Eat Pray Love (2010)

Indonesia Travelbag

Location: Italy, India, Indonesia

Based on a true story of Elizabeth Gilbert’s life, Eat Pray Love shows how travel to three separate locations: Italy, India, and Indonesia, helped her find true meaning in life. Gilbert finds the pleasure of food in Italy, the strength of prayer in India and finds love within the stunning scenery that is Bali, Indonesia. It was filmed on location and yet the cinematography still doesn’t convey all of the real beauty of Bali that comes from seeing it in person.


Couples Retreat (2009)

Bora Bora Travelbag

Location: Bora Bora

Set on the gorgeous Pacific Island of Bora Bora, a group of couples think they’ve bagged a bargain holiday, but are actually forced into couples’ therapy. The couples believe they don't need therapy. Despite this, they take part and due to their isolation from outside world cracks in their relationships begin to surface. However, while surrounded by the beauty of the romantic escape, the couples are able to rekindle their love life.

 

Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

Hawaii Travelbag

Location: USA, Hawaii, Honalulu Island

Would any holiday dreams be complete without Hawaii? While the film was a dead heat between a few, the cult-followed 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' reigns supreme due to the allure of Honolulu Island and more specifically Turtle Bay, Kulima Cove beach and the Pacific view from La’ie Point.


Almost Any Woody Allen Film

New York Travelbag

Location: New York

We couldn’t really just pick one film for New York but, we could at least pick a director – Woody Allen. Being a local New Yorker, Allen uses his own experience and is able to romanticise New York showing it through an eye that only a local in love with the city truly could. This feeling is definitely felt in his films. If we had to choose one movie it could only be Annie Hall. (1977). As his greatest critically acclaimed film, it picked up half of his Oscars.
