  • Travel Documentaries on Netflix to Satisfy Your Wanderlust
  • It’s a no-brainer that traveling is one of the things that people enjoy. Some of us travel for leisure, some for business, while others for self-discovery. The fact that we can discover so many things along the way is one of the most gratifying aspects of traveling alongside meeting new and amazing people.

    But there are some of us who prefer to sit back, relax, and travel through the eyes of other people—that’s where documentaries, movies, and TV shows come in. While we might not have experienced the journey first hand, discovering new things through this medium is just as exciting.

    Here are some travel & adventure shows that you can stream on Netflix Philippines:
