There are two types of tourists in the world. There are who that don’t complain, and then there are Americans. Okay, we’re just joking. Sort of. But mostly we are. Complaining and tourism seem to go hand in hand. Whether it’s service, prices, cleanliness, or anything else, it seems like visiting a foreign country can just open the flood gates of complaining.
The fact is, however, that sometimes the complaints are legitimate. Just to be clear though, our list today has nothing to do with “legitimate” complaints. It only points out what people are saying. It is up to you to decide whether you feel the complaints are worth taking into consideration or not. For example, most complaints are usually directed against the cultural norms of a certain area. Things like “the people are so rude” or “the buildings are so ugly.” That’s just the way it is. The problem with this is that the complaints can often become subjective. To one person that culture may be rude, to another person they just might be staying out of your business. It’s a matter of perspective. Either way, these 25 Tourist Locations People Complain About For Various Reasons.

Even the locals will complain about how boring it is. It’s a great place to visit once, though.
New Orleans, Louisiana
The disparity between rich and poor here is so stark that you may begin to wonder whether someone is playing a joke on you. Bourbon Street is nice to see once, but after that you’ll want to move on.
To the Europeans among you: it’s a tourist trap. Florida is more than Orlando.
While it is a beautiful city and the people are friendly, it has become far less of a “tourist spot” in recent years. Petty crime and terrorism rank high on the list of things to watch out for.
The Taj Mahal, India
While the building might be worth seeing, the surrounding areas are extremely run down. Definitely don’t wander off the beaten path too much.
