Here’s a fun question for you to ponder: Which Tomb Raider location would you visit if you had the money, time, and means to explore any of the places that appear in any of the Tomb Raider games, films, or comics?
Would you visit the picturesque temples of Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm in Cambodia? Would you explore the frozen expanses of remote Antarctica or Jan Mayen? Would you wander through the urban wildernesses of London, Paris, or Tokyo? Would you take a leisurely stroll along the Great Wall of China? Or would you opt for a more active holiday, perhaps a spot of mountain climbing in Peru or kayaking in the South Pacific?
You can learn more about the places Lara Croft has visited over the years by checking out any of the articles listed under “Lara’s Travels”. Alternatively, you can read about these 5 fans who followed in Lara Croft’s footsteps and visited a Tomb Raider location or two in their own real-world adventures.
Need some inspiration? Then check out TheGamer’s special feature on how the Tomb Raider franchise inspired some fans to visit places they may never have considered. I was one of the fans interviewed for the piece and I talked about the time I visited the real Trajan’s Market in Rome. This ancient Roman site was the setting for one of Lara’s adventures in the 2000 game Tomb Raider Chronicles and one of the Italian capital’s hidden gems.
There’s a huge, wonderful world out there for you to explore with countless travel experiences there for the taking. Feel free to let us know what is on your Tomb Raider travel wish list by leaving a comment below!
