You don't have to stop exploring the world just because you are stuck at home. Whether it's travelling you miss, or the sheer joy of eating at your favourite food stall, there is only little you can do to satiate your wanderlust in these times. But binge-watching these travel shows will definitely relieve that itchy foot of you travellers.

Parts Unknown

No decent list of travel shows can begin without a classic by the late culinary genius Anthony Bourdain. He created many masterpieces during his lifetime, and 'Parts Unknown' takes you on a mystic journey. Exploring the untrodden, indigenous Andes with Eric Ripert, the Sochi Winter Olympics, the Mississippi Delta, and, most famously, Hanoi with Barrack Obama, Tony did it all for you to experience cultures from hidden corners of the world.

An Idiot Abroad

Travel comedy does not get better when social experimenting teamed with some practical jokes take you around the world. An eight-episode series, this is brought to you by the creators of Emmy-award winning show The Office (British) so you know exactly what to expect.

Two enthusiastic friends drag along a third, more reserved one, on a trip to the seven wonders of the world – you can probably relate if you're always pressing your friends to join your travel plans.

Dark Tourist

Travellers started flocking in unusually large numbers to sites history associated with death and tragedy, giving birth to dark tourism. Journalist David Farrier focuses on that subset of tourism in this docuseries.

A death-worshipping cult in Mexico, tourists soaking up radiation left behind in Fukushima, vampires in New Orleans, the most-nuked place on Earth for atomic swimming and fishing – if that doesn't intrigue the traveller in you, then nothing will!

Street Food: Asia

Not your usual street food show, this Netflix original series tells the story of Asian street food through the people behind it. Bangkok, Seoul, Ho Chi Minh City, our own Delhi, and more – you will find yourself craving more than just food as you see the souls behind culinary history of these streets.

Lost Cities With Albert Lin

This one is for tech-savvy history enthusiasts. Yes, we know that's a rather offbeat category to put travellers in but you will know once you get on with this show. An award-winning scientist is on a mission to narrate legendary tales of the past from a modern point of view.

The six-part global series sends Dr Albert Lin on a mission to uncover and resolve mysteries of the most extraordinary archaeologic sites of the world.
