8 legendary destinations that often disappoint visitors
Considered to be a symbol of England, this ancient stone building stands on the blue sky as a crowded destination. Stonehenge has a unique structure, built from prehistoric times and until now, scientists have not fully understood the purpose and function of the stone circle.
However, this exterior works smaller than you think and is not as impressive as in the photo. The museum tour isn’t interesting. Many people think that it is best to sit in a car and look at Stonehenge from the highway across it for less money.
It doesn’t deny the attraction of the Vatican holy place which appears in many mysterious, attractive films. This art-lovers' destination is filled with mural paintings, elaborate sculptures at the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica or the Vatican Museum.
However, when coming here, the first impression of visitors is too crowded. Most of the attractions are packed, with many long lines. You will not be able to take a moment of peace or quiet to see and contemplate history.
Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italy)
The leaning tower of Pisa is famous for its seemingly anti-universal laws. The tower is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy, where visitors can take interesting "anti-tower" pictures.
However, in real life, the leaning tower of Pisa is quite small and very crowded, which means that you will have to squirm all the way to get the picture you like. At the same time, Pisa city does not have many attractive destinations for you to explore.
Pyramids of Giza (Egypt)
As one of the seven ancient wonders still alive today, the giant pyramid in Cairo is a testament to the power of man, which contains the pages of great history.
While we can’t deny the spectacular appearance of the pyramids, the development and urbanization of the surroundings make the experience of visitors less of mystery. Looking at the pyramid in the midst of between the vast desert must be different from looking at the pyramid from the fast food shop.
Times Square (USA)
Located in the heart of New York and romantically located in Hollywood's numerous movie theatres, Times Square is the destination of choice for many visitors.
Contrary to your imagination, this place is often packed with people, with garbage corners and countless unwilling shops and street vendors.
Christ the Redeemer (Brazil)
The huge statue overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro amidst the immense sea of the sky is one of the images which attract visitors to Brazil.
To get here, you have to transfer two bus routes and climb quite far. Visitors standing at the platform can hardly see the whole statue, in addition to hustling.
The city built on these islands is the dream destination of many, especially couples. It is no more romantic to be able to sail along the canal, watch the elegant houses and eat ice cream cups.
In fact, visitors to Venice are so crowded that local people are complaining. You will have to queue long in the sights, not to mention an exorbitant price for the trip by gondola.
Amsterdam’s red light district (Netherlands)
The red light district in Amsterdam is always charming and taboo, attracting the curiosity of visitors to the land of tulips.
However, this place is full of drunk youths and the girls are not as beautiful as you imagine. Covered up here is an atmosphere gloomy and depressed, not exciting and passionate at all. At the same time, Amsterdam also bans tourists from staring at the women standing at the window.
