The Most Disappointing Travel Destinations on Earth

Have you been hyped about a location that was just not what you expected?

It’s easy to be excited about a place you have never visited before. But it’s also very easy to be misled about how cool or worthy of your time and money it is. A quick Google search usually suggests the most popular sites. Unfortunately, they can actually be the ones you want to avoid.

This is not to say that you should avoid popular destinations, but keep in mind that you are more likely to encounter the unpleasantness that invariably comes with huge crowds – overpriced food and souvenirs and tours that tell you nothing more than what you can find online.

Do you really want to waste your time and spend hours traveling and waiting for a chance to see a vast area of land with nothing else on or surrounding it? The answer may be “yes” only if there was anything else to do there.
