Watch these travel documentaries and you'll be itching to wander.

Trust us, whether or not you're a foodie, you'll enjoy travel documentaries that centre on food. As the title suggests, the first volume of the docu-series focuses on flavourful dishes flourishing in Asia's streets. But aside from taking you to a gastronomic journey, it also shares heartwarming stories about the origins of the dishes and their auteurs. We highly recommend the episodes on Izakaya Toyo in Osaka, Japan and Smartfish in Chiayi, Taiwan. 

Dark Tourist

Love places filled with mystery and macabre? Dark Tourist is the doc for you if you're quite an eccentric traveller.  Host David Farrier brings his viewers to peculiar sites from all over the globe. Through the doc, he relives the places' histories. He also recounts real-life terrors through the eyes of locals. 'Faux illegal border crossing' and 'visiting a haunted forest' should not be on your travel bucketlist. But this will make you rethink storytelling when it comes to your next adventure. Travel documentaries like these are hard to come by, we're telling you!


Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father


Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father Netflix Travel Documentary


Most adults prefer to travel alone or with friends. However, actor and stand-up comedian Jack Whitehall reminds us that travelling with family delivers unique experiences. Along with his father, Michael, they explore different cuisines, cultures, and adventure trips. The fun part? Their different perspectives throughout the trips. With places like Phuket, Kiev, and Romania as the backdrop, you'd definitely want to book a flight with your parents after giving this travel documentary a watch. 



Metropolis


Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father Netflix Travel Documentary


We often travel to get away from the city — or more specifically, our own city. Visiting other countries for a glimpse of their daily hustle and bustle is a whole new narrative. This makes iconic cities inexcusable from being great travel destinations. From Rome to London to Paris and more, Metropolis focuses on what makes each of these mega-cities worthy of a visit. If you're a total urbanite who's not into adventure trips or traditional walking tours, this documentary is for you. 


Pedal The World

Adding to the low-key vibe is that the videographer is none other than DJ Diplo, who live-streamed the wedding on Instagram. Well, that's definitely a plot twist we didn't expect.


Taylor Swift accused of copying Beyoncé



Speaking of the Billboard Music Awards, controversy sparked after Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie's performance at the awards show. Viewers remarked that the marching band incorporated into the duo's live number bears a striking similarity to Beyoncé's performance last year at Coachella. Indeed, it's similar but the Beychella performance isn't really the first ever to have marching bands. Think about Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl, which was released way back in '04.
