Game of Thrones is filmed in locations that span the globe to double for the varied locales of Westeros and Essos. These locations are sometimes supplemented through digital alteration or digital creation by the award winning GoT visual effects team to be true to George R.R. Martin's original vision.

Which "Game of Thrones" exotic locale* is the most picturesque of the known worlds of Westeros and Essos? *regional categories include distinct kingdoms, cities, towns, castles and bodies of water, but images are intended as but one regional example.

SPOILER ALERT: Intended for viewers current through the 2016 season as poll reveals GoT depicted or discussed locations through Summer 2016.

Beautiful suggestion Benu!

My vote - Braavos.

You are truly a GoT expert. Just a question - How many GoT related PS have you made so far? And how many of those has gone live?

I have made 17 GoT PS so far and 8 of them has gone live (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls063515528/).

I have nine live GoT polls, but a much lower conversion rate than you, as I probably had some forty plus GoT suggestions on the old message boards.

I wouldn't call myself an expert, although I think my suggestions are accurate and well researched. There are a lot great locations featured on the show, but I had to work a little harder on this one. Most of the images weren't in the database, even though it is one of the largest for a title. I am pleased though how the poll visually looks and was glad to focus an aspect not commonly featured in polls: Location Scouting and Visual Effects.

I am currently re-watching the series, as I do each year before the new one. I pick up new details every time that I missed before or now can put in perspective. Which I guess is not surprising given the pace and level of detail of the series. I guess it is a tribute to the series complexity and re-watchibility. I am looking forward to the new season!!!

Qarth,looks amazing on the inside of the walls, not so much on the outside. The Garden of Bones is one place I would skip on the tour.
