5. Dil Chahta Hai

The film has set travel goals for a decade. Although the movie is known for many other things, the premise of friends traveling to hang out on Goa’s beaches is made up of stuff holiday goals! This was the film’s influence, and Goa became the young generation’s national holiday spot and remains so.

6. Delhi In a Day

This is a Netflix original film and considered one of the Best travel movies on Netflix. From the aerial intro shots to the moment-by-moment depiction of how servants are being served in India, “Delhi in a Day” is a mirror kept in the capital city of India. Cultural variations between the young British man, Jasper (Lee Williams), and his Indian host family can be humorous and often awkward. Partly in the subtitles, the film tells the story of the slaves, families, and visitors.

Street views from Jasper’s morning drive through the capital include sights that make us yearn for the next flight: bikes swaying through traffic, elephants and handlers wandering along the sides of the street, and new constructions popping up all over the place. Gorgeous scenery and believable travel scenes will make you watch this movie more than once.

7. Amélia

This film is French and can be found on Netflix with English subtitles. And if you’ve seen this movie, it’s worth seeing again. This cute French film chronicles Amélie (pronounced by AH-May-Lee) in her everyday life in this surreal glimpse at life in Paris. “Amélie” is one of the most popular French movies because of its focus on this sweet, innocent girl (Audrey Tautou) who wishes to find love.

A completely subtitled film stays intriguing due to scenes like the mischievous pranks that Amélie performs on the mean-spirited grocery store or the gnome pictures she sends her father from across the globe. A visit to her French apartment, the open-air markets, and the café where Amélie works is sure to make everyone dream of Paris.

8. Yeh Jawani Hai Dewaani

“Main Daudna Chahta hu, Udna Chahta, Girna Bhi Chahta hu, bas rukna nahi chahta” –  who can forget this dialogue? This film is all about the love of traveling that Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor) has. Bordered by thick forests and shining in their white beauty, the snow-covered peaks of Gulmarg are majestic. Even though Gulmarg had passed away as Manali in the film, the film encouraged the bag-packers to leave everything aside and go on a trek with friends in this area.

The second half of the film captures the majestic palaces and temples of Rajasthan. And who can forget the theme wedding at Udaipur? And to think some people still say Rajasthan is all about the deserts!

9. Jab We Met

“Main Apni favorite hu” – another gem dialogue that Bollywood has given us. The film starts off with a train journey from Mumbai and makes some interesting stops at Ratlam, Kota, Bhatinda, Manali and Simla. Each city acts as a stop-over for the characters and the story of the film. This film surely made train journeys look really cool!

10. The Way

Once a young man dies on his walk along the El Camino de Santiago trail in France after a storm, his runaway father arrives to pick up his remains and take up the road where his son left off.
