5 Hollywood holiday spots near Singapore

Need some travel inspiration? Why not look to the silver screens to decide where your next holiday should be.

Online travel agent Zuji has listed five cities where travellers can walk the same streets and share the same experiences shown in popular movies.

If you need a revitalising vacation to re-discover yourself, then hop over to Bali and retrace the steps of character Liz Gilbert, played by Hollywood actress Julia Roberts, in the 2010 movie, Eat, Pray, Love.

Immerse yourself in Balinese culture by participating in the many enriching activities such as yoga, surfing and cooking classes, or philosophy discussions.

For some quiet time, Bali boasts a long stretch of pristine beach where one can find their personal corner or go for walks along the rice paddies and age-old temples.

If action and adventure is what you're looking for, you can re-enact game-based movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Fans of the movie can visit Ta Prohm, which is also known to tourists as the "Tomb Raider Temple".

The action-packed hit saw award-winning actress Angelina Jolie navigate seamlessly through booby traps and mazes while in the temple.

Ta Prohm is shrouded with massive roots and huge trees, making it the perfect background for a mystical photo souvenir.

Siem Reap has retained most of its rustic charms as compared to the urbanised cities nearby, such that exploring the town itself feels like an adventure.
