Welcome to our travel guide!
Are you planning a trip? Before you go, check out these famous landmarks that might not live up to the hype.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy
1. It leans, but that's about it. The interior lacks interest, and the surrounding area is touristy and overcrowded.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame, USA
Expect glitz and glamour, but it's mostly concrete and crowds. You won't find many stars actually walking here.
The Little Mermaid Statue, Denmark
This iconic statue is surprisingly small and often swarmed with tourists, making it challenging to get a good view.
The Manneken Pis, Belgium
It's a small peeing statue. While historically significant, don't expect a grand sightseeing experience.
The Mona Lisa at the Louvre, France
Yes, she's famous, but the painting is relatively small, and you'll struggle to see it up close without battling the masses.
The Great Wall of China, China
An engineering marvel, but some sections are overcrowded and modernized, losing its ancient charm.
Times Square, USA
Bright lights and billboards, but it's always packed with tourists and not a true reflection of New York City.
While historically intriguing, visitors are no longer allowed close access to the stones, limiting the experience.
The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
Impressive as they are, the surrounding urbanization takes away from the ancient wonder's mystique.
