There are so many places in this world that one wishes to visit and out of all the these places, most of them are declared good via grapevine. Some people come back from a vacation in one of the world’ islands and declared that the place is as close to paradise as possible and based on that judgement, another couple visit and discovers that the island was nothing but a few heaps of sand and cold water. We have been saying this time and again that the vacationing season, that is summer, is upon us and therefore, more than ever before, people are looking for the best spots to spend their spring/summer breaks. Just to make sure that you do not pack your stuff and land on a place which makes you go “there is an earthquake up in hell”, we have surveyed and selected ten of the most disappointing travel destinations in the world. Remember that this article will based on millions of reviews that people have given over the internet and therefore will be true to quite an extent.
The first most disappointing travel destination on our list is Gibraltar. The place is a combination of some British and some Spanish characteristics. What you might find the most annoying is that the combined characteristics are perhaps the worst of both the cultures. Not only will you have to wait hours in the line to get past the border, you will also be greeted by nothing more than monkeys and charges upon charges for visiting the sullen little rock structures scattered around. Nothing much to observe, capture on film or talk about in short.
9. The Niagara Falls
Next we come to the much famed Niagara Falls. For all those who aren’t already aware, the Niagara falls basically consists of three falls those being The American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe falls. Also for those who are not already aware, the other side of the Niagara Falls, falls on the Canadian side. Word to the wise; ditch the American side and go on over to Canada for a better look and the American side will be nothing more than a sullen disappointment.
8. Las Vegas, Nevada
We all know that people literally drool when they hear the name of the gambling giant Las Vegas but trust us, the place might seem like something out of your very own dreams but once the sun is about to go back up, you will left with nothing but a surrounding that will be dense with smoke, bad colored lights and desperate drunks surrounding you. More than that, you will have emptied your pockets out for nothing and the charm of the place will suddenly lose its appeal. So learn from the experience of others especially in this case.
7. Casablanca, Morocco
The next disappointing travel destination that we have for you is Casablanca. All those people who are on their way to Morocco often pass through Casablanca. This city has to be the top most disappointing place on the whole of earth if we consider all those places which are touted as tourist destinations. All it contains is office buildings and an atmosphere that will make you want to drown yourself.
6. Disney World, Florida
The next destination is Disney World in Florida. It is from experience that we can claim that long after we have passed the age to admire Disney World, we still have that soft spot in our hearts for that place. It is due to this soft heartedness that we tend to keep going back. It is about time for a little reality check don’t you think? Instead of going on and on about how the place lacks almost everything that appeals a tourist we would like to get straight to the point. The point being, that if you do not want to spend all the money in your pocket for a whole day amongst noisy kids that aren’t even your and drinks that can give cough syrup manufacturers a run for their money then we advice that you maintain a safe distance.
5. Frankfurt, Germany
There are so many cities in the world which go into a coma as soon as the sun drops out of sight and Frankfurt is no different. We are sure that you might be the compulsion to visit one of the financial capitals of the world and how it’s all about money and how money is everything but trust us on this one. This city will put you to sleep a lot more quickly than three doses of Nyquil.
4. Statue of Liberty, New York
The next disappointing travel destination that we are going to quote might make your brain spin. The reason is that we quoted the statue of liberty to be one of those places which attracts the maximum number of crowds AKA tourists in New York. Now while this still stands true, there will always be one person who will go “mooooo” because there are just so many queues and so much human traffic that it often resembles a cow herd. The time you spend there only settle in your mind as time that you spent standing in one line after the other so do yourselves a favor and excuse the poor overly crowded place.
3. Temple Bar, Dublin
The next utterly disappoint and we-don’t-know-why-people-actually-go-there destination is Temple Bar in Dublin. Now please don’t get us wrong, Dublin itself is an amazing city with architecture that is truly amazing, not to mention the dreamy castle, the gorgeous greenery but temple bar? Temple bar is home to all of the most drunken tourists ever and what is more is that the drunken lot is still at logger heads to see who can drink even more! Need we say more? Spare yourself the horror.
2. Nassau, Bahamas
The next disappointing destination with respect to travel is Nassau in the Bahamas. We are going to cut to the chase here and tell you what you can expect from a visit to this place and then we shall do you the courtesy of letting you decide for yourself whether the place is worth the visit or not. You will be constantly asked to give away all you have in monetary terms(no we aren’t talking about being robbed) and you will be surrounded by cruise ship residents (is what we like to call them) who are trying to adjust to life on land. There, we have said it!
1 Hollywood, California
Last and in this case, most definitely the worst, we have Hollywood in California. The biggest pet peeve we have about this particular tourist destination is the expectation people have of encountering actual celebrities “its Hollywood dude”! Well for crying out loud, this place will offer you a horde of fake wanna-be’s and a bunch of others pretending to be famous actors. On top of that, the pretenders will gladly offer to get their picture taken so a small amount of money. Unless you want a true E Hollywood story, we suggest you let the sorry little place be.
