A great man once said, “Winters are a great time to stay in and cuddle but put me in summer and I’ll be a “happy snow man!” (*Cough cough*: It was Olaf! :p) Sure we cannot avoid the dreaded winter but surely we can make the most of what we have which is songs! Here is a journey of bollywood songs travel to spice up your winters and give you some major #travelgoals.
Well, Switzerland and New York City are passé, it is time for Bollywood to explore the exotic locales. Here we embark on an interesting journey to find some of the recent songs filmed in unique places across the globe. Let’s see if this tempts you to travel?
Here you have it, our list of Best Bollywood Songs Travel wise:
#1 Gerua (Dilwale): Iceland
The haunting song from the SRK movie features on the top of my list for a reason. Iceland still happens to be one of the less explored countries and those amazing rock formations on the Black Sand beach is out of this world!
#2 Matargashti (Tamasha): Corsica
A large chunk of the movie has been shot in Corsica, the beautiful island, which is part of France but more partial towards Italian culture. However, what is more, fascinating is the amazing landscape here, craggy hills form a backdrop to pristine sandy beaches and then there is lush greenery in the form of dense forests.
#3 Khwabon Ke Parindey ( Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara): Spain
How can we ever forget the movie that literally taught us to move out of our comfort zone and embrace adventure, feel the adrenaline rush and let go! Breathtaking locales from all over Spain was another highlight of the movie and the song shot near Rio Tinto Mines, Huelva Province makes you want to take a road trip in Spain so badly!
#4 Hairat ( Anjana Anjani): Mojave Desert
A forgettable movie with unforgettable locales! Shot mostly in the Mojave desert and some of the national parks nearby, the power packed song is the perfect choice for any road trip!
#5 O Gujariya (Queen): Paris & Amsterdam
Kangana’s stellar performance, a beautiful story, lovely locales and melodious songs made Queen a super hit! O gujariya is shot in Paris and Amsterdam, a fun song with a nice rhythm gets your feet tapping before you realize.
#6 Sooraj Hua Madhyam( Kabhi Khusi Kabhi Gham): Giza
The song that inspired Gerua was certainly this one. The hit duo SRK and Kajol nailed it completely in this song and proved to the world that their chemistry has not dwindled over the years. Shot in Giza, among the Pyramids and Bahariya White Desert, the song is a sensual treat.
#7 Jane Kyun ( Dil Chahta Hai): Australia
Most people associate Goa with the movie Dil Chahta Hai, but the later part of the movie was shot in Australia. This beautiful song is shot in Hyde Park, Quay and Milson’s Point in Sydney.
#8 Tu Janey Na (Ajaab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani): Pammukale
A movie from not so long ago with some of Pritam’s biggest hits, Tu Janey na is an amazing song created keeping in mind the Sufi Dervishes. The exotic locations of Pammukale, Temple of Apollo and Aspendos Theater will definitely make you go through your bucket list again.
#9 Lamha Lamha (Gangster): South Korea
For those who boasts of being in the New England region of US during fall, must visit Nami Island in South Korea. The entire island is a treat for eyes during fall! The yellows merge on to oranges and reds.
#10 Tu Hai Ki Nahi ( Roy): Langkawi
The haunting tune, the scenic roads of Langkawi and a super sexy bike and Ranbir Kapoor looking a tad different, the songs of Roy captured our hearts, and so did the scenic Langkawi where it was shot!
# 11 Mein Lapaata ( Ek Tha Tiger): Cuba
The sizzling Katrina and the charming Salman romances in the streets of Cuba, off the radar for most tourists, the locales are inspiring enough to make you want to go on a trip.
#12 Meherbaan ( Bang Bang): Greece
The very hot Hrithik and Katrina totally do justice to this song in the breathtaking Greek island of Mykonos.
#13 Khuda Jaaney ( Bachna Ae Haseeno): Alberobello
Shot mostly in a lesser known part of Italy called Puglia, this song is exotic to say the least. Whether it is the quaint town of Alberobello, the pebbly sands of Vignanotica Bay. Or even the stacks making arches at Faraglioni Mattinata, the locations leave us speechless!
#14 Tum Hi Ho Bandhu (Cocktail): Cape Town
The racy number, two refreshing beauties and the amazing backdrop of the Table Mountain, make this song worth watching. Shot in Cape Town, beautiful South Africa will give you some serious travel goals!
#15 Kilimanjaro (Robot): Peru
Funnily enough though shot in Machu Pichu the song was called Kilimanjaro but with Thalaiva around, nothing is impossible I guess and that included getting a permission to shoot the song here when even the makers of Quantum of Solace failed to do that! Macchu Picchu requires no introduction and features in most traveler’s bucket list!
