What better way to get inspired for travelling than watching someone else doing the same on the silver screen. The movies are full of stories of adventure, meaning, happiness and eventual learning. Here is a list of best (Bunkotel) movies that will inspire you to travel.

Queen (2013)

Vivacious and Bold actress Kangna Ranaut’s character takes on a journey to Paris and Amsterdam. She learns about her identity and the mantra that life is all about having fun with your individuality.  She lives in (Bunkotel, well sort of) similar kind of hostel in Amsterdam and makes new friends and completes her solo trip with style.


Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011)

A film in its own right is a travel documentary of the Mediterranean. The roads, the sea, the festivals and relationships of friends in between. Indians travelling to Spain were estimated to increase by 40% after this film release.


The Way (2010)

People take on to travelling because of different reasons and this film revolves around a father who treks on Camino de Santiago trail to honour his dead son. His son died on this trail. During this journey, he befriends many characters (strangers). The film is a must watch chicken soup for the soul.


180 degrees south (2010)

The film has a strong story with travel is its theme. If you are fed up with horrors of industrialisation and turmoils of the natural world then this film might intrigue you. This film is a story of how some brave people stand up and take this head on. The film is a filled with a strong meaningful message of how materialism will one day consume the world as we know it.

The Art of Travel (2008)

Similar to Queen in theme, this man takes his honeymoon alone just like the protagonist in Queen. The results are quite similar though. The film is a cinematic marvel as the character wanders through the vast of South and Central American rainforest. The film touches the nerves of every traveller’s toughest bit of going out on a travel, his way back home.

A Map for Saturday (2007)

A “backpackers memoir” could have been an alternate title for this travel documentary. A man quits his dream job with HBO to travel around the world for a year. During this time he literally lives out of his backpack. If you want to take a similar journey or have already taken one, you will surely relate to it. A must see for Bunkotel fans as it really tells you to travel budget.

I am sure there are many other tales waiting to be picked and written about, we found them unique, maybe you will find some other.

A Map For Saturday is a travel documentary that follows one man as he quits his cushy job with HBO to travel around the world for a year and live out of his backpack. It shows the different ways people travel, and gives an accurate picture of what it is like to vagabond around the world long term. You get to experience both the ups and downs of his trip at a very personal level. If you ever thought of doing something like this, the movie will show you what the experience is really like. It also shows you that anyone can travel cheaply if they really want to. The only thing stopping you is, well, you.
