20 best movies & series to watch & Travel the world sitting at home

We all miss the days when traveling around was cool, exploring new destinations is something all of us crave right now. Wander Womaniya brings to you these amazing collection of movies and web series to see until the lock down ends. Hope you like the collated list, do let us know if you do!

1) Dil Chahta Hai

Probably each one of us has seen this one many times but are we bored yet? Doesn't it make you want to go to Goa yet again with your girl gang? We know its the boys Goa trip in the movie but well why should boys have all the fun!!

2) Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Yet another story of three friends but this time its a road trip in Spain, some claim this one to be the sequel to Dil Chahta hai & we are not complaining. We love ZNMD as much as we love Dil Chahta Hai. Senorita anybody?

3) Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani

We all adore how this story ended with Bunny & Naina deciding to give love a chance, this one is again a feel good movie which makes us want to travel with our friends. The movie was shot in Manali, Udaipur and Pahalgam (Kashmir) too. It also ran into a controversy because Kashmir tourism department was not happy as they portrayed Kashmir as Manali too. But are we complaining? Nope in-fact we love the idea of joining a travelling group on a trekking trip.

4) Game of Thrones

Most of you would rather have GOT on one of the best available web series ever list but well it has been shot around beautiful locations in many parts of the world including Spain, Scotland, Morocco, Croatia , Northern Ireland & Iceland too. Yes it means you need to see it all over again!

5) The Trip (Season 1)

This is a story of four girlfriends who go on a women only road trip to Thailand as a part of the bride's bachelorette, the journey though, turns into an emotional roller coaster. The starting might be a tad bit underwhelming but the show gives us girl trip goals.

6) 3 Idiots

What can be said about 3 idiots which hasn't been said before? Let's just say "All is well" and wait till we can book our Ladakh Trip! Who knows we might meet Rancho there :P

7) It Happened in Hong Kong

Two solo travelers meet in Hong Kong, become friends, go on to explore the city together. Doesn't it sound beautiful? It is even better when you see Amol Parashar & Aahana Kumara give you solo travelling goals. You can't miss this one!

8) Tamasha

Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) is all of us who are stuck in corporate slavery while we want to pursue our dreams and it takes us through various locations including Ved's house in the hills to the beautiful landscapes of Corsica (France). Before Tamasha France meant the Eiffel tower n Paris but there is more to France than that.

P.S. Both Deepika & Ranbir were travelling solo through France, you get the drift here? Tell us again what's stopping you from going for a solo trip!

9) Finding Fanny

Five people embark on a road trip to find Fanny who hasn't been heard or seen for quite some time now, what can go wrong? Watch Finding Fanny if you want to see the real Goan culture and landscapes! Starring Deepika Padukone & Arjun Kapoor in lead. Spoiler Alert: There is Ranbeer Singh too!

10) Rockstar

Rockstar isn't originally a movie focused on travel but well it takes you through Chandi Chowk and North campus in Delhi to beautiful Kashmir and eventually (Prague capital of Czech Republic) where rest of the story unfolds.

P.S. Ranbir's character lives in Nizammudin Dargah in Delhi which has been recently in news as corona-virus hot-spot in connection with Tablighi Jamat incidence.

11) Piku

Piku is an unlikely road trip from Delhi's Chitranjan Park all the way to Kolkata with some brilliant acting from seasoned actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan & Deepika Padukone.

12) Queen

Rani is belongs to a middle class family in Delhi who is dumped by her to be husband so what does she do? She goes on a solo trip which she calls her solo honeymoon. The story is about how she finds her true self while travelling alone dealing with different issues, makes new friend in Lisa Haydon, stays in a hostel and a lot more. Indeed a must watch for Kangna Ranaut's acting.

13) Highway

A girl is kidnapped from Delhi and taken to Himachal by her abductor but story takes a turn as she feels safer around the her kidnapper than being home. The road trip takes you through Kinnaur valley in Himachal covering heavenly places like Sangla, Rekong in Spiti Valley. Probably the best acting performance by Alia Bhatt!

14) The Trip (Season 2)

The story is about a four girlfriends going on a trip just that one of them eloped from her wedding. The destination is beautiful former French colony of Pondicherry, near capital of Tamil Nadu Chennai. Would make you want to grab hold of your girl travelling group together and just hop on a beach trip.

15) Jab We Met

We loved Geet in this one but well its a travel fest too! The journey starts from a railway station to Punjab via Ratlam ki galiyan and eventually Shimla & Manali. Don't miss the snow covered roads at Rohtang Pas.

16) Karwaan

An unlikely road trip with a dead body onboard across South India covering Cochin & Ooty sounds scary right? But its a feel good movie, must watch for Mithila Palkar & Irrfan Khan!

17) Dil Dhadakne Do

A family trip starts with a lot of differences but somehow ends up together by the end of it! Simple & Sweet movie, watch it to experience a cruise trip while being quarantined.

18) The Beach

Would you believe if we tell you that Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actor for this movie. But well we would still recommend this movie despite the negative reviews because this movie was phenomenal in exploration of Thailand's best beaches including Phi Phi and Koh Samui.

19) Eat Pray Love

This Julia Robert starrer movie was shot across Italy, India & finally Bali. Based on the best-selling novel by Elizabeth Gilbert titled: “Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything, depicts a successful woman travelling solo across the world after her divorce.

20) Laila Majnu

The lesser known love stroy based in Kashmir, it didn't get a lot of buzz at box office but the song "O Meri Laila" sung by Atif got really popular. Watch this movie for tender love story amidst the crisis in Kashmir (The heaven on Earth)

At Wander Womaniya we organize women travel groups for girls travelling solo in India & abroad!

Tell us how many of these have you already seen or you are yet to watch...till then TADA! Stay Home Stay Safe
