For me, my top 3 travel documentaries are:- Samsara- Jack Whitehall Travels With My Father- Anything narrated by Sir David Attenborough
I also compiled a big list of travel themed movies on my blog: www.journeysacrosstheglobe.com/i-need-to-travel-but-stuck-at-home/
Here's my top three travel documentaries:
1. Kedi (beautiful film about street cats in Istanbul)www.kedifilm.com2. Hit The Road India (driving a rickshaw from Mumbai to Chennai)vimeo.com/ondemand/hittheroadindia3. Global Convoy (three friends buy a car and drive it around the world)www.globalconvoy.com/watch-documentary
Oh this is a tough one. There are so many that I love I can't even narrow it down to top 3. I'll need to deep dive into my Netflix previous viewing to see some recent favourite ones.
Usually anything with food involved gets my vote!
I know Jean, top 3 isn't easy, my list could go on!
I really enjoyed Volkan Üce’s documentary, ALL-IN. "ALL-IN was featured at the recent Encounters Documentary Festival, is a meditation on tourism and hospitality from the perspective of the workers who form the backbone of the industry."
I actually haven't heard of Encounters Documentary Festival, I'll need to check it out.
I really enjoyed "Larry Charle's Dangerous World of Comedy" which is a bit about travel as wellI also liked "Dark Tourism". Both on Netflix.
If you want epic experience can't look much further then:On the Trail of Genghis Khan - Tim Cope - Horse Trek form Mongolia to Romania (Took three years)timcopejourneys.comMystery of the Nile - First descent of the Nilemacgillivrayfreeman.com/project/mystery-of-the-nile/The Long Ride Home - Nathan Millward - Sydney to London on a 110cc Postie Bike www.nathanmillward.com
One of my favourite travel films is ‘Tracks’. It is based on a true story of a lady who walked a vast distance in Australia to reach the ocean in the 1950/60s with her dog and four camels.
Dark Tourist on Netflix is worth a watchand Long Way Round, a great road trip movie
Asian Provocateur series does it for me. Just the right blend of humour and travel
I must admit I don't watch many that are just about travel. But I love documentaries / series showing other places, particularly when they are about food, wildlife or just feature a lot of great scenery.
Mountain would be a favourite if that can count as a travel doco somehow.
