Yes, the same movie that made us fall in love with Spain in all its glory.

After diving into a scuba adventure, save your last Wednesday of August for La Tomatina in Bunol. The dainty white villages Grazalema, Vejer de La Frontera and Arcos de La Frontera, with pretty old churches and narrow streets have their own charm.

While there is nothing quite like sitting on La Barceloneta beach at dusk, don't forget make a stop at Cadiz, the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain.

2. Queen (2013)

A movie about a ditched bride who goes for her honeymoon alone and eventually ends up discovering herself, Queen was beautifully shot in Paris and Amsterdam.

From the iconic Eiffel Tower to Disneyland, Moulin Rouge, Place des Vosges, Arc de Triomphe and the famous Louvre Museum, the world's most romantic city Paris has something for everyone.

While the Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank House, Vondelpark and Dutch National Opera & Ballet in Amsterdam are some of the finest tourist spots in the city.

Ranbir & Deepika's Tamasha introduced Corsica in our lives and how beautifully so. So, if you want to do some 'Matargashti Khuli Sadak Mein' in Corscia let us suggest some places for it.

Go for Bonifacio, Calvi, Gulf of Porto, Bastia and the Beaches near Porto Vecchio and understand why Corsica lives up to the label of being the 'Island of Beauty.'

4. Dil Chahta Hai (2001)

Royally pissed because your Goa trip is just not materialising? Gather some rock-solid motivation with the movie that started it all.

Made famous by the iconic scene in Dil Chahta Hai, the Fort of Chapora grants you a picturesque sunset and some serene time alone.

The nightlife and water games at the Bagha beach, Anjuna beach, Basilica of Bom Jesus, Dudhsagar Waterfalls, Club LPK, Candolim, Scuba Diving, Casino, the list seems to be endless and dill toh sabkuch chahta hai.

5. Highway (2014)

Alia's Highway was a visual delight and left us craving to escape in a truck to faraway lands.From Sangla Valley in Himachal Pradesh to Aru Valley and Chandanwari near Pahalgam, touching the plains of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab.

6. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013)

What DDLJ did in 1995, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani did in 2013. It made us want to pack our bags and embrace Kal pe sawal hai, jeena filhaal hai in totality. Shot in the snow-clad mountains of Gulmarg represented as Manali in the movie, Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani urges you to go trekking with your friends.

The thrill of the second highest cable-car in Gulmarg Gondola, Skiing, the paradise named Khilanmarg and the Maharani Temple, Gulmarg won't leave you disappointed.

Shown lavishly in the second half of YJHD, Kalki Koechlin's famous Kabira wedding added 'get married at an Udaipur fort' to all our bucket lists, did'nt it? But apart from dreaming about getting married there, when in Udaipur, don't miss the City Palace of Udaipur, Lake Pichola and Bagore Ki Haveli.

7. Jab We Met (2007)

From' Ratlam ki Galiyan' to 'Sikhni hoon main Bhatinda ki' Jab We Met was as much a story of these 4 cities as it was of Geet and Aditya. Depicting the different tones and shades of the story, each city has some incredible tourist spots that you must give a go. Solang Valley and Rohtang Pass of Manali, The Mall, Viceregal Lodge and Jakhu Temple of Simla, Kotah Garh, Chambal Garden and Kishore Sagar Lake of Kota, and finally Kalika Mata Mandir and Choumukhi Pool of Ratlam should be on your next must-visit list. 

8. Kahaani (2012)

Kahaani is one of the rare Bollywood movies that has touched the bare soul of Calcutta. Even if you have never been to the city, it makes you strangely nostalgic for it.

Howrah Bridge is one the most famous landmarks of Kolkata, while Jorasanko Tharkurbai , Park Street, The Indian Museum. Victoria Memorial, Calcutta Racecourse and the majestic Eden Garden are some things you should not miss out on your next trip to 'Calcutta'.

Kahaani, serves you Kolkata in all its festivity, chaos and charming glory that you fall for in a heart-beat.

9. Anjaana Anjaani (2010)

The road trip from New York to Las Vegas in Anjaana Anjaani showed that travelling was the way to live. New York has famous sites at every turn starting from Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, the historic neighbourhoods to the Broadway and Shubert Alley.

And there is nothing really left to be said about Vegas, why? Because, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. 'The 2.5 mile long Strip' of Vegas has some huge resorts including Caesar's Palace and The Colosseum. Madame Tussaud's, Bellagio Casino and Fountains, Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area are major tourist attractions here.

10. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995)

DDLJ remains the original Bollywood-styled travelogue even today. The journey of Raj and Simran in an open-bus tour traced Leicester Square, Big Ben, the Broadway, Westminster Bridge, Buckingham Palace and King's Cross Station. It is a movie that inspired a whole generation of Indians to bag-pack to Europe's breathtaking wonders.
