A travel documentary is a documentary film, television program or online series that describes travel in general or tourist attractions without recommending particular package deals or tour operators.
In the past, the genre was represented by television shows, such as Across the Seven Seas, showcasing travelogues produced by third parties, and occasional itinerant presentations of travelogues in theaters and other venues. "Shock" travelogues, such as Mondo cane (1962), also enjoyed a certain following.
The British comedian and actor Michael Palin has made several series in this genre beginning with Michael Palin: Around the World in 80 Days (1989). PBS has several travel shows including those hosted by Rick Steves.
