Love film? Then plan your holidays around classic films set in beautiful places
Time Out Dubai staff
The USA is the obvious place to head for movie-themed holidays. Monument Valley is the location for classic Westerns, including John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939) and The Searchers (1956) and Sergio Leone’s masterpiece Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), making it the ultimate cowboy fantasy setting. You can stay at the boutique-style View (www.monumentvalleyview.com
), inside the park, or motel Goulding’s Lodge (www.gouldings.com ); both have jaw-dropping views of the buttes and spires of Monument Valley. Don’t, though, expect saloon fights; the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park (www.navajonationparks.org/htm/monumentva lley.htm), to give it its full name, is in the dry Navajo Nation autonomous region.
