Unfortunately, this amazing reflection isn’t real – the photographer uses a mirror to create these illusion.

“People come to this temple to take a picture with a piece of glass. Yes the photo is spectacular and Instagram is full of these pictures but it’s a shame that people don’t come for the history and religion,” wrote one user on Tripadvisor.

“Expect many tourists, and NO WATER ON THE FLOOR,” said one more user.

“Without editing, most photos will look rather ordinary. Photos you see online look pretty because the shots are taken with a mirror, giving the impression of a reflection on water,” added another user.

Look at those gorgeous cherry blossoms and clear blue skies! However, in reality, it’s cloudy over Mount Fuji quite often, so don’t plan a trip around seeing it.

It would be cool to see one of the world’s wonders with your own eyes but you’ll likely have to share the views with a few thousand people.

Terme di Saturnia (Manciano, Italy)

These cerulean blue springs look like the perfect place but in reality, it’s not that blue at all.

So, you traveled halfway across the world for a great view of the Mona Lisa? Well, all of those people did it too.

Tulum’s Mayan ruins are undoubtedly beautiful. But good luck snapping a pic without all the other tourists.

Maybe if you get to the Taj Mahal early enough in the morning you’ll beat the crowds.

There are few beaches in the world quite as picture-perfect as Railay Beach on the Andaman Sea. Just don’t go expecting a deserted island.
