Plan a trip, take a beautiful photo, is something all of us look forward to for months or even years in advance, and because we just simply don’t get enough of it, it makes sense that we would plan where and what should we see. But did you know that our planned trip can be very deceiving, and you should be prepared for some very unpleasant surprises.
10. Capilano Suspension Bridge, North Vancouver, Canada
This 459-foot (140m) long suspension bridge, hanging lazily over the Capilano River with towering Douglas fir trees on either side, can already seem a bit daunting. Walking across the bridge, suspended 230 feet (70m) above the river, is definitely a spine-chilling activity if you’re not a fan of heights. Up
9. Mona Lisa, Paris, France
The most famous painting in the world, da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is shrouded in myth and speculation. With its worth estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars, it’s also one of the most valuable paintings on Earth. Visited by history buffs and art enthusiasts alike, there is just one problem with going to see the revered portrait
8. Taj Mahal, Agra, India
An architectural masterpiece, the Taj Mahal is a universally admired UNESCO World Heritage Site. The image of this marble marvel overlooking the reflection pool in the foreground is a travel classic. Shooting your own snap, however, is not quite that simple. What not many will be prepared for, however, is the extreme concentration of smog in the air. The pollution might just ruin your photo altogether!
7. Big Ben, London
The Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster – officially named Saint Stephen’s Tower – is commonly known as the Big Ben. The tower is one of London’s most famous landmarks. The clock inside the tower was the world’s largest when it was installed in the middle of the nineteenth century.
6. Leaning Tower of Pisa
The Leaning tower of Pisa is a bell tower in Italy and was built in 1372. The reason behind its leaning is that it was made on sand and started sinking and tilting as the construction reached the second floor in 1178. It is one of the most visited places in world and amongst the seven wonders of world. People love to take their pictures looking like they are keeping the tower from falling over. If that was in your mind, then you should not be surprised to know that almost every tourist visiting the tower has the same idea, only poses are different.
5. Beach at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
And it looks even worse witjout people
4. Niagara Falls, Canada
Niagara Falls is a geological wonder and one of the most famous waterfalls in the world. Straddling the border between the United States and Canada, it has been a popular tourist attraction for over 200 years
The waterfall in the photo below is not Niagara but on internet it looks better
3. The Great Wall of China, China
The 2,000-year-old Great Wall of China stretches almost 13,000 miles (21,000km) from east to west. Built to protect the historical northern border of China, its architectural grandeur and historical significance are just some of the reasons why it’s worth seeing. But if you’re expecting to stroll down a deserted path that snakes through the countryside, you might want to think again
2. Mount Snowdon, Wales, UK
Reaching the top of the highest mountain in Wales is on the bucket list of many British hiking enthusiasts. With nothing in the way to obscure the view of the stunning Snowdonia National Park (and even Ireland on exceptionally clear days), reaching its summit feels like standing on top of the world. Only you probably won’t be standing alone.
1. Mount Rushmore, USA
Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a massive sculpture carved into Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills region of South Dakota. Completed in 1941 under the direction of Gutzon Borglum and his son Lincoln, the sculpture’s roughly 60-ft.-high granite faces depict U.S. presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.Follow me on Facebook
