Going for vacations? Avoid these overcrowded places.
1. Barcelona, Spain
Barcelona the cosmopolitan and modern city of Spain which is known as the “best beach city” in the world is a big no when deciding your travel destination (but why? Don’t they have the best architecture and beaches?).
It’s true that the pleasant weather, clean beaches and the astounding architecture makes us want to visit the place but would you really want to visit a place where you always have to worry about your wallet because oh boy!
Pick pocketing and con artists are the strings attached to walking carelessly on the jam packed streets or travelling carelessly on the fully loaded metros or subways of Barcelona. And do you really think visiting a place where you are always complaining about over crowded places just like the residents of the city who in 2017 came out on the roads to protest against over tourism (the statistics say that there’s a 25% increase in tourism in the city since 2012), is worth it?
Do you really think that you will get that peace of mind you’re searching, with all that chaos and over crowding around the city?
Visiting Barcelona would be major turn off for your mood so be careful before you plan your next visit to this city. However, why not head out to Valencia and not compromise on your mental peace?
2. Venice and Rome, Italy
Venice the place where thousands of canal side selfies are taken each day is put at risk by the increasing tourism. It’s said that about 20 million tourists visit Venice every year and these tourists worsen the life of the 55,000 permanent residents of the city because to cater these tourists the locals lose everything ranging from their homes to their jobs.
To resolve this issue the mayor Luigi Brugnaro suggested a limit on day-trippers – a necessary step as said by a traveler. And on Easter, to keep things in control, crowd-control gates were installed at pinch-points. So are blur selfies and unclear views are what you really want to opt for? (I hope not, because your followers deserve every detail, don’t they?)
So why not head to Annecy in France or the villagio mall in Qatar (artificial canals isn’t a bad idea after all) and satisfy your followers.
3. Newport, Rhode Island
Are you considering Newport? Seriously? Do you really want to waste most of your travel time stuck on the busy roads? Or bumping your head on the car’s roof because of the numerous roundabouts on the way?
Why not save your time and mood and instead visit Watch Hill Island? Same state but lesser hassle.
The increasing fame of the city Amsterdam has caused the tourism to increase by 9% in Netherlands in 2017 which makes it 10 tourists for every resident of the city.
Measures like putting a ban on short term property rentals in busy areas and cutting activities like beer bicycles and segwan tours have been taken.
So, why not visit Strasbourg and enjoy those watery vistas instead. And your way back to home, use a junk removal services to remove all the junk and feel calm.
5. Dubrovnik, Croatia
Thanks to the show “Game of Thrones”, Dubrovnik tourism increased uncontrollably which provoked UNESCO to issue a warning to take away the city’s world heritage status. To resolve this the city’s mayor proposed a limit on the number of cruises entering the ancient port.
What if it’s not your lucky day and you miss your chance for the cruise in Dubrovnik because of full booking? So, how about not choosing to spoil your mind and visiting the Cavtat instead and enjoying the peace on the empty beaches there? And avoiding the crowd.
