Indiana Jones’ Favorite Destinations


With the release of Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull next week, it seems that Indy fever has hit the web as we all anticipate another adventure with our favorite archeologist.

Not to be left out, Forbes Traveler has put together another one of their great slide shows, this time with the Indiana Jones’ Favorite Destinations. The list is filled with the exotic places that Indy has visited in the three feature films released so far. Places that have inspired a generation of adventure travelers you can be sure.

The list starts off in Choquequirao, Peru of course, as where else would you start a list of places that Indy has visited. We got our first glimpse of the man in the fedora in the jungles of Peru when he went searching for a golden idol in a the lost ruins of an Inca temple. From there it’s on to Kathmandu and then Egypt, where you can search for your own treasures even to this day.

The rest of the list covers the remaining movies and even speculates on a location from Crystal Skull. It’s a fun list and great reminder of all the places that Indy has visited that you just might want to as well. I know that part of the reason I wanted to visit Egypt as a kid was because I saw Indy there in Raiders. Visiting it for myself was amazing though, and I nearly recreated one of the scenes in the film when I got lost one night in the Khan EL Khalili Bazaar. Of course that’s a story for another time, but lets just say I wished I had a trusty bullwhip with me at the time. 😉

  1. Interesting post, but I actually thought that your blog is about outdoor adventures like hiking or extreme outdoor activities.

  2. I also write about travel, and adventure travel in particular. If a post like this inspires someone to visit these locations, than it’s served it’s purpose.

    Thanks for being the Blog Police and dropping by to tell me what I should and shouldn’t write about though.
