Game of Thrones – Dubrovnik

It’s ultimate setjetting TV series. Game of Thrones is as responsible as any other film or television show in the boom of location travel. Northern Ireland has had its tourism industry transformed, as has Iceland, but nowhere has won over the watchers more than Dubrovnik. King’s Landing, one of the most important settings in the whole series, looks pretty much identical to the Croatian city. From the towering city walls to the iconic red terracotta tiles that give its skyline a pop of colour, there is now something transportive about the narrow streets and old medieval buildings of this beautiful city. Our eight day tour along the country’s Dalmatian Coast ends with a comprehensive tour of Dubrovnik, but also starts in Split, which itself is home to several GoT filming locations, including Diocletian’s Palace.

Squid Game – South Korea

It was the TV show of 2021. Squid Game’s cultural impact was phenomenal, so much so that it quickly became one of the most successful TV shows of all time, overcoming the tiny hurdle of subtitles to become a huge hit worldwide. It’s also the culmination of several years of growth for the Korean drama genre, which has grown increasingly popular overseas. While much of Squid Game is set inside a sterile, creepy TV set, the characters are all from Seoul, and the scenes depicting their lives before the game were all shot on location in the city. That means that a guided tour of the Korean capital, like the one you’ll have at the start of our 10-day trip in South Korea, will be full of familiar locations.

Moon Knight – Egypt

Of all the MCU shows to drop on Disney+ in recent years, Moon Knight has left the biggest impression in terms of its choice of location. The entire plot revolves around classic Egyptian mythology, history and even a bit of geography. Admittedly most of the show’s interiors are shot in Budapest – a favourite shooting location for Marvel generally, which you can also visit with Culture Trip – and even the desert sequences are filmed in Jordan, also a favourite playground for the industry. However, the heart of the show revolves around the magic of ancient Egypt, and the plot revolves massively around Cairo and the Great Pyramids of Giza, both of which you’ll visit at the start of our Ultimate Egypt trip. Having explored the iconic sights that Oscar Isaac and various otherworldly beings traverse in the north of Egypt, we’ll head south on a luxury Nile river cruise, stopping off at various ancient sites, including Luxor Temple, also known as the Temple of Khonsu – Khonsu being the mysterious Moon god with a connection to Isaac’s Steven.
