A veritable checklist comes with every high-stakes mission cinema's most enduring super-spy James Bond undertakes. The women are sure to be gorgeous; his gadgets, impressively high-tech; his martinis, shaken not stirred; and the locations the international jet-setter travels to, always breathtakingly picturesque. From the picture-perfect tropical Caribbean locales (Jamaica in Dr No, The Bahamas in Thunderball, Panama City in Quantum of Solace) to the old-world prestige of Europe (Paris in A View To A Kill, Switzerland in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Russia in GoldenEye) and the centuries-old charm of the Far East (India in Octopussy, Japan in You Only Live Twice), Mr Bond has logged his fair share of frequent flyer miles across the globe. SO shares snapshots of the destinations in Bond's black book.
