Places To Go Inspired From A Bollywood Movie

 Yes, somewhere deep down, we all swear by Bollywood! After all, it’s our version of the fantasy land, and more often than not, it is through the lens of this very Bollywood, that we get to explore some of the most impeccable destinations and see their charm unveil! However, you can now actually enjoy these exotic destinations in person and relive the magic that you once experienced on-screen! And to help you make your pick, we’ve created a list of 5 of the Bollywood’s most sought-after destinations!


Used as the go-to destination for a large number of flicks, this has to be the first one on our list. Going down on the memory lane, it becomes clear as crystal that the pastoral grasslands, the snow-capped alps and the quaint villages of this picturesque destination has been best explored in the classic, DilwaleDulhaniya Le Jayenge. Right from the charming village of Gstaad, to the highest train station of Jungfraujoch and the spectacular emrald green lake of Lungeren, DDLJ had it all, and sure left us gasping for more! And who can forget the mesmerising ambience of the St. Mauritius Church of Saanen, pictured oh-so-perfectly! However, Switzerland goes much beyond what was shown on reel with its stunning landscapes, exciting biking trails and incredible natural grandeur, something that can only be experienced first-hand!


From the era of romance to that of vivacity and adventurousness, ZNMD helped us get a sneak peek of what lies in the mystic lanes of the beautiful land that Spain is. Right from the exhilarating beaches of the awe-inspiringCosta Brava coast to the primitive walled-village and the spell-binding Tossa de Mar castle, ZNMD took us to places galore and how! Now, if that’s not enough to lure you to the prospect of visiting this impeccable destination, we’re sure the incredibly passionate lifestyle of the people, which is sophisticated yet full of fervour surely will! Not to mention the wondrously beautiful mountain ranges of Picos de Europa and Pyrenees, that are worth every bit of your time!


The go-to destination for every Indian, whether for pleasure trip with friends, a family vacation or for a romantic getaway, the magic that Goa creates never seems to fade away! And the essence of this place’s charm has been captured the best in a movie that showcased the life that we all once dreamt of, but could never truly realise. Yes, DilChahtaHai it was! The Fort Aguada, the Chapora fort and the exotic beaches that North Goa has to offer, this movie captured it all! However, as any place else, even Goa has to offer much more than just that. The hospitality of the natives, the unending water-sports, the impeccable night-life all accentuate the beauty of this destination, while it’s sun-bathed beaches and outstanding architecture acts as the icing on the cake. 


Fondly known as the “Venice of the East”, the charisma that Udaipur creates stays unmatched! The royal hospitality, the tremendously breath-taking precincts, and the impeccable setting of the city amongst the lovely Arravali Ranges helps Udaipur create an aura that one can only seldom experience. Made hugely popular by the fun-loving youth-oriented movie, YehJawaaniHaiDeewani, the majesty of Udaipur is simply something that one needs to indulge in, at least once in a lifetime!


With its snow-capped tracks and breath-taking landscapes, Ladakh often leaves its tourists speechless. Situated at a whopping height of 14,000 feet, the immensely beautiful roadway to this destination is reason enough to set foot on this sojourn. Accentuating its beauty by manifolds, is the Pangong Lake that exhibits the soothing hues of blue in summers, and becomes land-locked in the winters, as the water freezes. Made famous by its use in the climax scene of the cult movie, 3 Idiots, this stunning destination should definitely score high on your bucket list!
