These movies will help fill your travel void.
There are now over 1,500 Netflix original titles, a fraction of which are travel movies, and a fraction of that fraction of which are good (when you put out that many originals it’s inevitable that they all won’t be Oscar winners). But good-shmood and ratings aside, the real reason we tune into a travel movie is not for clever dialogue or an engaging plot—no, what we’re here for is, simply, something pretty. Show me a waterfall I haven’t seen before and one excursion and you’ve pretty much checked all the boxes.
To help you get through another season of quarantine, we searched through Netflix and took their algorithm on head first to find 10 of the platforms’ most popular travel movies. So, prepare to “leave” your apartment with a Mai Thai in one hand and remote in the other, we’re queuing up these 10 Netflix original travel movies.
