3. Ko Phi Phi Leh, Thailand

Of course Ko Phi Phi Leh is beautiful, and combined with the allure of a shirtless Leo DiCaprio, the tourist pull proved devastating.

This Thai island, which can only be reached by a ferry that sets off once per day, used to be reserved for only the most adventurous tourists.

But after DiCaprio frolicked in the waves in The Beach, tourists swamped the place, which is why access is now limited to preserve its paradisiacal beauty.

4. Tokyo, Japan

Tourism to Tokyo dipped after the devastating earthquake of 2011. But even the threat of tremors aren’t enough to put off Hugh Jackman’s most devoted groupies.

The Wolverine isn’t even being released until the summer this year, but there has already been a spike in bookings to Japan’s capital.

Eager to get a glimpse of the edgy, futuristic Tokyo shown in early-release clips, fans have been heading to neon-lit Roppongi area and the Tokyo Tower.

5. Forks, US

Never underestimate the tourist-drawing power of a sexy vampire.  

The ultimate Twi-hard pilgrimage is to the sleepy town of Forks in Washington, aka home to Twilight’s floppy-haired vamp Edward (R-Patz, above). 

The movie trilogy caused a truly staggering 1000 per cent increase in bookings for lodgings in the Pacific Northwest town.

Here fans can visit sights of ‘interest’ (in the loose sense of the term), such as the school Bella attended or her house.
