Apart from Wolf Warrior 2, the global popularity of the hit American TV drama Game of Thrones, particularly after the season finale arrived in July, has also put some locations where the series were filmed on many travelers' roadmap.

According to a report released by the China Tourism Academy and Ctrip, thanks to the 7th season, Northern Ireland, Iceland, Spain, Croatia and Morocco have witnessed a significant growth in the number of tourist arrivals, becoming the dark horses of tourism this summer. Chinese tourist arrivals in Croatia saw a 300% jump, and Spain recorded a 77% surge.

In order to cater to the travel needs of the fans of the TV hit, travel agencies, both home and abroad, have developed the "Game of Thrones" package tours, taking visitors to explore locations in which the drama were shot, like the Ballintoy Harbour and Cushendun in Northern Ireland, volcanic plains and waterfalls in Iceland, etc, all aiming to provide tourists with an immersive "Game of Thrones" experience.
