Netflix has boosted its travel content again with the latest batch joining already popular programs such as Down to Earth with Zac Efron, the award-winning The Dawn Wall, and frightfully fascinating Dark Tourist.
TripSided takes a look at the travel-related movies and programs being added this September.
The Worlds Most Amazing Vacation Rentals (Season 2)
Back for a second season, The Worlds Most Amazing Vacation Rentals had viewers bitten by the travel bug when it debuted during the pandemic.
Presented by Luis D. Ortiz (Million Dollar Listings New York), travel YouTuber Jo Franco, and DIY designer Megan Batoon, the show looks at the surprisingly affordable side of luxury travel.
Season one saw the trio check into a beautiful beachfront villa in Bali, a floating mansion in Miami, and a lizard-like living accommodation in Mexico City.

Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001)
Paul Hogan returns for the third installment of the cult classic, reprising his role as the straight-talking Aussie Mick “Crocodile Dundee.” The movie was distributed by Paramount and took nearly $40 million at the box office.
The final movie in the Crocodile Dundee trilogy sees Mick make the move state-side after Crocodile hunting is made illegal in Australia and his wife Sue, played by Linda Kozlowski, lands a role at an LA newspaper.
Predictably, the film is fraught with cultural mishaps and misunderstandings as the family acclimatizes to their new life. There are also some shady dealings going on at a film studio and the untimely death of Sue’s predecessor, which sees Mick turn detective to try and uncover the truth.
