Films Inspiring Travel Trend In 2023

We watch movies and series to get transported to a reality different from our own. From period dramas to rom-coms, the visual medium lets us travel the world in inexplicable ways. We may not have been to Paris, but watching Emily in Paris on our screens very well gave us Paris-street vibes while we sat on our beds and emptied our favourite pack of crisps.
