Selamat Hari Raya and Happy Holidays

Selamat Hari Raya to all our Muslim friends. Hari Raya is celebrated at the end of Ramadan by Muslims all over the world in more than 25 countries. During this festive time, we wanted to help put you in the right frame of mind by taking you to some of the most beautiful locations around the world that have been highlighted in TV shows, movies and music videos.


Where will we go? Take a look below.

The Catskill Mountains in Fall Out Boy's MV

Our first destination is the Catskill Mountains in New York, where Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar Were Goin Down” music video was shot. Known to be a great nesting spot for budding artists, this area boasts luscious foliage that is sure to inspire you.

Next stop, Miami! From the scenes in Passion of the Heart, you’ll see the enticing Southwest Ranches in Florida. Makes you want to ride a horse and go wild!

The beautiful falls of Canaima, Venezuela

We continue our journey to South America with the Latin Angels, visiting Canaima National Park in Venezuela. Home to one of the world’s highest waterfalls, the amazing landscape makes every snapshot perfect.

Now head to a part of the world with similar climates: South East Asia. Sangiang Island in Indonesia, where Bride’s Waterfall was filmed, is known for its beautiful beaches juxtaposed against mangrove forests. Busuanga Island in the Philippines, where Dyesebel was filmed, is a famous diving spot with several shipwrecks since World War II.

Heading north, we arrive at Kaohsiung, Taiwans second most populous city with numerous tourist attractions from sky towers to pagodas and night markets. There’s never a dull moment. This is the city where the movie, Island Etude was shot.  


Finally, we arrive in the Land of the Rising Sun. Lake Tazawa in Akita and Sunset Beach in Okinawa, Japan, are where Korean dramas IRIS and Scent of a Woman were filmed.

Lake Tazawa, the deepest lake in Japan, was the location where the memorable scene of Lee Byung Hyun embracing Kim Tae Hee was shot.

Sunset Beach in Okinawa is a popular beach destination for families and where Scent of a Woman actors Lee Dong Wook and Kim Sun Ah fall in love.

Did you have fun so far? If you think that wasn’t enough, we have one more stop.

Yes! Outer space. Yukari in Rocket Girls did exactly that. She embarks on a journey in search of her father and unexpectedly ends up in outer space. Now that’s what we call an adventure!


So, what’s your favorite celebratory destination?
