Have you ever been on holiday somewhere and returned home feeing completely underwhelmed, an overrated travel experience?
The bloggersphere, social media, travel magazines etc. never stop bombarding us with ‘must see’ attractions and destinations.
What a terribly sad and somewhat psycho story that was! 😆Hopefully none of us will react that badly to a disappointing travel experience!
It’s almost impossible for our expectations not to be influenced by the marketing we’re surrounded by, including guide books and ‘sensible’ travel articles.
But they don’t always get it right, and that’s because we all experience things differently and no amount of research can control this fact, right?
So, you used all your savvy packing tips, booked your tickets and off you went.
The thing is, when you got there you felt utterly deceived and wished you’d spent you hard earned money elsewhere, sound familiar?
In your opinion, are any destinations or common tourist attractions just a completely overrated travel experience, and worth skipping?
There’s no right or wrong on this, it’s all a matter of opinion so there’s no need to sit on the fence – say what you really think, because that’s far more interesting!
I’m curious to hear your thoughts on this – let me know the places you think are more hype than substance in the comments below:
By the way, I found this fabulous photograph at ‘Free Images Live’ and I love it!!! Not sure whether these cows are underwhelmed or just enjoying the beach lol.
