    I would like to see Bond in the following
    1) Jamaica- it's just a natural for Bond
    2) South Africa- I don't think he's been there yet
    3) Spain - just because

    Bond has to go back to Japan for a proper adventure there.

    Bond should explore a glacier. Perhaps a supercomputer is hidden under it? The glacier would both cool it for free and hide it from satelites with thermal cameras. Bond could also have a fight using ice picks. This glacier is in Alaska. It looks both very Bondian (something Ken Adam would like) and at the same time completely new to the series.

    Great pictures in and under this Glacier, but isn't Bond in Spectre going across a lake to a glacier (for filming).
    If it's like the Octopussy book story-there may be a dead body or two? (My speculation.)

    I'd like to see Bond back in venice, such a photogenic place. Smart casual would be how'd I'd dress him.
    Next up Washington DC. Ive been and it's a strange city, the seat of American power so close to such poverty and dereliction. And I thought it worked in Solo. He would be suited here.
    I'm torn between a snow-scape and skiing or the caribean for my final choice
    It was either that.....or the priesthood

    New Zealand is beautiful. And "untouched", some areas if New Zealand no person has ever stepped foot on because it is difficult to do so. Brilliant place for a hideout.
    NZ not only has insane mountain ranges, like the Central Plateau, but also Boiling Mud Pools (characters death perhaps?), and an unforgiving landscape.
    If you want to see Bond, against physical challenge of tramping, tracking a villain across bushes, Nee Zealand is the place to do it.
    Also, Queenstown, Otago, may be a brilliant Bond location, with its casino's, Ski Resort and lovely scenery.
    When you live in this country, you do feel like you Are on the edge of the world.

    ^ I agree that NZ is beautiful but it doesn't make sense to me in the Bond universe.

    Tracking villains across bushes is more like Rambo or more gritty action films - Bond belongs at bars, restaurants, casinos, beaches.

    I also think that locations in NZ that may suit Bond would be closer to Scotland - something already done in Skyfall.

    I guess I just want him to come here :)
    Little bias.
    Nothing wrong with shaping it up a bit. I mean, a lot of Dr No is Bond in an island, using his wits.
    They could do like an Oceanic Bond Film. With Bond following a villain from the Desert outback of Australia, to a crocodile infested river in Darwin, to snow in Queenstown, and a Huge Mansion in New Zealand. Casino in Wellington? Hot pools in Roturua?

    There are a couple of locations I think would look amazing in a Bond film.

    - The Catacombs, Paris - maybe a foot chase scene leading into here
    - The salt pains in Botswana - there are lttle Islands in this, maybe a villain lair on one of them
    - Euro tunnel shuttle - maybe for a good fight scene in between the cars on the train
    - American Boardwalk park - again another setting for a good fight scene

    I think the first three are excellent ideas. The fourth I've seen done in American film.

    I think Bond movies should show the audience places they haven't seen before. For that reason they should stay away from Venice/northern Italy, Turkey, Austria/Switzerland and Jamaica for a while. Places that we see very often in other movies, such as New Zealand and Washington DC should be avoided. Someplace new for the audience like the Chinese location I posted is the right way to go.

    During pre-filming of spectre. DC was down in new Zealand, he reportedly was scouting out locations and used a local gym there. He also scouted out morrocco with his friend a fellow actor mark strong, who is a brilliant actor and I think should appear in the bond franchise at some point.

    What about a commando raid on Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur in India? That would be something amazing the audience has never seen before :007)

    Wouldn't that be very similar to the raid on the Monsoon Palace, just on a larger scale?

    For which see John Gardner's Death is Forever (1992) of course.
