Nexter.org created a list of the most disappointing places in the world.

PART 1

Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is a magnificent wall, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, that stretches for over 5,500 miles from Hushan to Jiayuguan Pass, all the way up to Mongolia. Every person must see it at least once, right?

Well, yes, but prepare yourself for the fact that the Wall looks a little less magnificent with pools of tourists on every inch of it.

The Eiffel Tower

Have you ever imagined yourself in Paris, in front of the Eiffel Tower having a picnic with your significant other, eating croissants and drinking wine? Sounds like a movie scene, right?

Unfortunately, there is a big chance that won’t even be able to find a place to sit, as this is not only your dream. Oh, and don’t forget about huge lines and expensive tickets to the top of the Tower.

The Greek island of Mykonos

Oh, a true hotspot for millionaires, a beautiful island with amazing beaches.

Although, Mykonos is becoming more expensive and a little too trendy. If you want to have a vacation there, be ready to spend a lot of money. The cheapest place to stay, which will not be luxurious at all, will cost you $130 a night.

“Outside of the beaches, the main thing to see in Mykonos is the windmills that sit above the Hora, or main town of the island. But during sunset, and when the cruise-shippers come in, the area is swarmed with people trying to get selfies, “Harrison Jacobs, Business Insider correspondent wrote.

Cancún, Mexico

Looking for a perfect relaxing beach vacation? Cancun might seem like the place to go.

But in fact, this is definitely not what you are looking for as during a spring break this city is full of partying college students.

Central Park, USA

Oh, the green wonder of the concrete jungle – lakes and fountains, monuments and ice rinks, and, of course, the famous hot dog stands.

Unfortunately, it might not be like you are imagining, as you are not the only one who wants to enjoy the greenery of the park, be ready to share this spot with hundreds of other people.

Machu Picchu, Peru

Probably one of the most visited sites in South America, a UNESCO Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – Machu Picchu. Looking at a picture of it, it seems like a place where you just want to sit in silence and feel the energy of this place.

But you won’t be able to do that because of a never-ending stream of tourists, always talking and walking around.

Santorini Island, Greece

Salty breeze, fresh fish for dinner and a view of white and blue buildings, this is Santorini. Perfect place for a romantic vacation.

Of course, nothing will take away the beauty of this place, but troops of tourists are definitely trying to do so. So, if you want your vacation to be a little quieter and less crowded, you’d better come before or after summer.

Which city is your biggest disappointment?
