Celebrate 48 years by traveling like James Bond

TRIPATLAS pays tribute by sharing Top 10 ‘Bond’ vacation spots in the world

Get your white teeny-bikinis and sleek tuxedoes ready because today marks 48 years since Sean Connery was first introduced to the world as the infamous James Bond in the UK premiere of Dr. No (1962). The movie featured actress Ursula Andress on the beach in a stunning white bikini while the world got to know the suave double agent from England who visited casinos and drank martinis “shaken, not stirred.”

Now, what better time to pack for a themed adventure, James Bond style?
From Thailand to Las Vegas, TripAtlas – the world’s largest online travel resource, has rounded up the Top 10 places to travel like James Bond as part of its consumer offering for unique travel ideas. “At TripAtlas we stay current and ahead of the trends when it comes to offering inspirational ideas for adventure travel,” says Travis Snelling, Co-Founder of TripAtlas.com.

TripAtlas considers Japan the number one destination to ‘live like a spy’ on your next vacation. In You Only Live Twice (1967) the villain’s lair is hidden in a volcanic crater, similar to those seen in Kirishima-Yaku National Park. Take a trip to the foot of the mountains and indulge in the hot springs after a long day hiking the Kirishima Range.

Also included in the Top 10 list is the Orient Express – featured in the 1963 Bond film From Russia With Love. This passenger train has always been synonymous with luxury travel and intrigue.

“Who doesn’t want to travel like James Bond?” asks Snelling. “Having the location of a famous Bond film as your vacation backdrop is the height of luxury and TripAtlas offers the ideal channel for consumers to scope out editorial and connect
with TripAtlas PROs to ensure their adventure
vacation dreams come to life,” adds Snelling.
