To tap into the power of movies, many governments are increasing their tourism campaign around big-budget movies. Besides governments, private tourism operators such as hotels have also started promoting their businesses through movies.

Despite this boom, not all marketing campaigns are successful because it is important for the host nation or private operators to choose movies that would show their places in good light.

Another important movie that impacted the tourism industry in a positive way is the 1987 war comedy called Good Morning, Vietnam. In this movie, Robin Williams played the role of a radio DJ on the Armed Services Radio Service who entertained the American troops during the Vietnam War of 1965. This film was shot in Bangkok, Thailand and for many Americans, this movie was their first view of what Thailand looked like. The busy streets, multitude of people and even the street signs in Thai provided a glimpse into the Thai culture. It got viewers thinking about a whole new country on the other side of the world, and soon, people began to get more interested about Thailand. As for Thailand, tourism is one of its biggest revenue grosser today. While the movie per se did not bring in tourists, it nevertheless gave the Western world an idea of what Thailand looked like.

San Francisco is another city that benefited from Robin Williams and his movies. The popular Mrs. Doubtfire house located on 2640 Steiner street in Pacific Heights has seen many visitors over the last two decades. The movie was the second highest grossing film in 1993 after Jurassic Park, and since then, people have thronged to Pacific Heights to see this house. In fact, his death brought many flowers and candles from fans to this popular house. Besides this house, many people have visited San Francisco to see the actor's home in El Camino Del Mar which is distinguished for its dinosaur peering atop the stony walls.
