Traveling is something that many people wish they could do more of. Whether you lack the time, money, or know-how to travel the world, though, it can be comforting to watch others do it from the comfort of your couch. A great travel show or documentary can be a wonderful escape, and a reminder that the world is much bigger than the tiny slice of it you live in every day. What’s even better is that many great travel docs are readily available on Netflix, if you’re willing to go looking for them.
These documentaries will deliver stunning panoramic shots of the U.S. National Parks, as well as plenty of international wonders, and a little bit of good food as well.
If you like all kinds of docs, travel or not, we’ve got you covered with Netflix documentaries (or maybe you’re just really into crime docs and action flicks). We also have an overall guide on the best Netflix movies and Netflix shows.
In an original series from Netflix, Midnight Asia: Eat Dance Dream details the exciting and ever-changing night life of multiple Asian countries.

The camera crew will follow a few quirky individuals who are either a part of the entertainment or simply choose to take part in it on a regular basis.
