Set-jetting is the trend of traveling to destinations that are first seen in movies. It is also referred to as a "Location Vacation". Touring London in a high-speed boat like James Bond, or visiting the stately homes that are seen in the Jane Austen films are good examples.
The term was first coined in the US press in the New York Post by journalist Gretchen Kelly in 2008. An analysis about the use of Geospatial technologies in setjetting was proposed by Thierry Joliveau in The Cartographic Journal.
In June 2018, Maya Beach, made famous by Danny Boyle's 2000 film The Beach, was closed indefinitely to allow it to recover from the ecological damage of mass tourism. The beach received up to 5,000 tourists and 200 boats a day.
