England's 'South West Trains' encourage people to travel locally with these train ads that illustrate places in England that look like other countries. Each print ad has a stunning photographed background of settings that look like faraway destinations -- Dubai, Amsterdam, Algarve and Andalucia.
While these places may be luxurious and desired destinations, they are also very expensive and don't pose a practical option for those who have a tight budget or short vacation. Instead, the train ads pleasantly surprise the viewer by stating in small print that these photos were actually taken in various places across South-Western England.
From the beaches of Lulworth Cove in Dorset to the fields of Andover, Hampshire, South West Trains does a successful job at making local places that can be traveled to by train appear alluring.
