Travel Like James Bond

If you like James Bond films you'll enjoy Budget Travel's tour of hotspots from the Bond Movies:

From Italy to Istanbul to Thailand, James Bond really got around as a tourist even though he generally was too busy dodging bullets to do much sightseeing. You can avoid most of the danger he faced with visits to these locations or avoid all of it as an armchair traveller:

GoldenEye (1995)Le Casino de Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Octopussy (1983)Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, India
