This is what it’s really like in tourist areas

You want to avoid traffic and big rushes to well-known destinations and prefer to stay comfortably at home on public holidays and weekends. But then you open Instagram and suddenly see all your friends discovering the world and then… FOMO!

But don’t worry, everything always looks much better on Instagram than it actually does. In Venice, for example, things are currently not looking as good as you had hoped.

Here’s the story:

But Venice is not alone in this. Well, even if not all the destinations mentioned in this story can be reached on a weekend on the bridge, many places are currently packed with tourists.

If you want that beautiful photo at the Trevi Fountain in Rome, you have to wake up very early.

Relaxing in nature takes on a whole new meaning at Dzukku Valley in northeastern India.

By the way, it’s not just too many people that are a problem with Venice.

At least this is still a special experience in the Puja Valley in India.

Due to the large number of tourists, Bali also has two sides…

By the way, Nusa Penida is located right next to Bali. It doesn’t always look the same on Instagram as it does in reality.

At this hotel in Bangkok, it’s all about perspective.

Then perhaps you would prefer an adventurous vacation in Capri, Italy.

The First Cliff Walk in Grindelwald is located nearby. But of course this is no longer insider advice.

Le Mont-Saint-Michel, a French commune, has a population of only 25 people, but a lot of clay…

Even people don’t always look the way they present themselves on social media:

Of course, the island of Santorini in Greece should not be missing from this group.

At least this GIF is a good advertisement for Instagram filters.

Is hiking still really trendy? At least in China, obviously yes, because there they can withstand any weather.

More like this:

At least people keep a respectful distance from Uluru, the sandstone massif in the Northern Territory, Australia.

Should you go to Thanh Oy in China? 😅

At least you can meet new people at Samet Nangshe Viewpoint in Thailand.

So, don’t feel like you’re missing out, because as Berset said: “Stay home!”*
