Leaving the glamor of the city of light, we enter a black and white environment, at least that's how it is in the film that was also directed by Woody Allen. However, nothing loses in beauty, New York has been the scene of countless movies and series, it is impossible to visit it and not bump into a known place, someone famous or even see a movie being recorded on the spot.

5 – The Beach – Ko Phi Phi Lay – Maya Bay – Thailand

It is not possible to know if this film is famous for Leonardo DiCaprio or for the beach… Actually, yes, what a fantastic place! Someone give this beach an Oscar, please! Beaches are fantastic places and it's definitely on many people's list. Easy to say why Thailand is one of the most visited tourist spots in the world.

6 – Everest – Everest – Nepal

The highest point on Earth, of course the scenery would be amazing! You don't have to climb to the top to see the majesty of the Himalayas, from many points in Nepal you can see the mountains, and in the background, the majestic Everest. The mountain has several base camps and the southern base is at 5,364 meters allowing a unique (and safe!) view of Earth. But if you plan on climbing the mountain and entering the Hall of Great Climbers, prepare well and good luck!

7 – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – Ireland – Cliffs of Moher

The producers of the film could choose any cliff to shoot, there are others bigger in length or length, even the Cliffs of Moher stretching for 8 km is truly breathtaking! However, few have the amazing beauty of the Cliffs of Moher and in this scene from the most famous Wizard in the world, no computer graphics (CG) was used, due to the natural perfection of the setting. Remembering that CG is not sorcery it is technology. Thus yielding a magical result in the cinema, and increasing the number of visitors to the place, today reaching more than one million a year.

8 – 007 Against the Rocket of Death – Rio de Janeiro – Brazil

And that's where the weirdest scene of the film takes place, James Bond enters a pyramid in the middle of the forest and begins a life-or-death struggle with a well-known animal of the place, the giant snake, the famous Ana Conda.
