      >By the time the Vessel marked its two-year anniversary, three people had committed suicide by leaping from its heights. The attraction was closed after the third death in January 2021 and reopened five months later with new protocols in place. Information about the National Suicide Prevention Hotline was placed along walkways and printed on tickets.

      Come with your family see our tourist attraction and get a suicide awareness speech for freee.

      Well, if "natural wonders" count, my vote goes to Mount Fuji then.

      Every other mountain in Europe is as beautifull or more than Mt Fuji (the Matterhorn, the Mont Blanc, the Pyrénées overall). Also, the amenities around it are sub-par compared to anything in Europe.
      In France if you go near the Mt Blanc you will get a dozen ski stations that are quaint and with dozens of good restaurants each with a good view; in Japan you will get towns that are 80% parking lots and Ryokans for depressed old people.
      Sure, you get a good photo on a sunny day, but it's literally the "mountain but Japan" meme.

          I did both, it's a mountain to "see" for an hour or two (and again, it makes good photos, granted you take them at the same spot everyone take their photos of Mt Fuji), but it's not a place to enjoy... or anything around it for that matter.

            Every able bodied visiter to Japan should hike Fuji at least once. It's not difficult, you can do it in a day.
            Its an aesthetically appealing mountain but travelling just to look at it from a distance seems like a waste of time.

            Go out and ask 100 random people to draw any of those mountains. Then ask them to draw Fuji. Every single one of them will draw Fuji but nobody knows what the frick Everest or the west coast Rockies look like.

            Fuji is the Eiffel Tower of mountains. If you know the existence of their respective countries, you know them by those landmarks first.

              I see your point and it appears in media often, but the Matterhorn is on the toblerone bar, it is drawable. And what makes a mountain/ range iconic isn’t just its recognizability from seeing a picture, it’s the coast, hiking, scenery and stories that go along with it. Everest is the pinnacle of mountaineering, Rockies and Dolomites are arguably most scenic. Fuji is a cool volcano but the Hawaii volcanoes and the PRF are more touristy

    The Grand Canyon skywalk. It's 2 and half hours each way from Vegas. It costs $80 per person to walk a 50 foot trail to look at a section of the grand canyon that's 1/3 as deep as the real Grand Canyon in the national park. You'll spend 20 minutes looking and then leave. There is nothing else to see or do. This is it. The whole thing.

      I straight up don't understand why Manneken Pis is even an attraction. If you didn't see the crowd of people all taking pictures of this thing you'd assume that it would be any other fountain in Europe but apparently it's one of THE things to see in Brussels. I thought Porte de Hal would be the more touristy spot.

      I went in 2020 and there was no one on the skywalk. The price was expensive but I gotta say that view was unforgettable. Pictures don't do the scale of the Grand Canyon any justice. Probably wouldn't go on the skywalk now there's going to be an annoying amount of people now

        It's because belgium is a made up country with nothing redeemable on its own. They should stop pretending and split once and for all between France and the Netherlands. The two provinces hate each other so it's not like it makes sense on the first place.
        Just the fact that the manneken pis is their national symbol is telling. Any random fountain in a third-tier city in Italy beats the manneken pis so easily there isn't even a competition.

          i didnt even go cause i heard from someone its absurdly small and you cant even get close. copenhagen was okay, but a very disappointing city i have zero intention to return to. very very soulless feeling, architecture is insanely repetitive, people are straightup unfriendly and its incredibly expensive for a B grade european capital. those are the bad things, has a few okay things. but i was not blown away by anything at all.

    "South of the Border". It's a park on the border of North and South Carolina and is Mexican themed. That's it, that's the entire premise. Get it, because you are crossing the border so it's Mexican? It's almost so bad that it's good, except we all got food poisoning from the terrible food there.

    I wouldn't mind it as a quirky roadside attraction on I-95 if there weren't a billboard for it every 5 minutes for hundreds of miles. Made us think it was a big thing when it really wasn't. Yet, I still think everyone should stop there as like a rite of passage. As I said, it's so absurd that you have to kinda do it. I just wouldn't eat the food unless you want diarrhea.

      Evidently someone didn't stand beneath the giant Mexican man's crotch and get a photo, baka (I am halfway convinced by the consistent lack of cars in parking lots every time I drive by paired with the absurd amounts of upkeep that must be necessary that SotB is just a front for laundering cash)

    Pantheon in Rome used to be free (in 2023), but now it's 5 euro to visit

      What does that have to do with the coolness of a thing? If anything Rome is so mass tourist infested I think it's great they decided to charge entrance for that too. That 5€ won't kill your trip but helps with budgeting upkeep of shit like that which can be really expensive with all the conservation rules etc they have to account for.

        That's a fair point.

        Before, it was cool because you could organically visit, like you could with Campo di Fiori, Piazza Navona, Janiculum Hill, and all of the (other) churches.

        Having to pay kind of ruins that spontaneity and wonder, and takes time away from exploring. Last year, I was able to visit 5 times (observing different things each time).

        This time, I had to schedule my entrance. I passed it many times, but it took the joy out of that part of the trip.

    I went to NYC and ran into this thing by accident without knowing anything about it so I decided to walk all the way to the top. Was kind of neat in that sense, but I definitely would not make it a destination point.

      The high line is pretty nice, though.

    The Hollywood Walk of Fame is probably the biggest letdown you'll ever experience. Everyone who visits me since I moved out here wants to see it. I try to talk them out of it and they never listen. Look, "there's a Hard Rock Cafe! Oh, and there's a Baja Fresh with a homeless person taking a shit in front of the entrance. There's a a guy on meth overdosing in front of a Marshalls. Ok, you were right. Can we go somewhere else?"
    When my friends finally realize that I'm right, I take them hiking. The mountains around LA are fricking amazing. All the waterfalls are going to be insane this year with all the snow melt.

      LA and the whole west coast is a let down, it lost everything.

      Where did they plan to go next? Venice Beach? It's shit. Downtown? It's shit.
      I guess hicking and seeing the Hollywood sign is ok (tho it's small and a let down in real life as well).

        "the whole west coast"
        Let me guess, you spent 3 days in trashy LA, and then you went to Disneyland like a fat adult baby, and flew home to Tulsa Oklahoma. Yea, that's probably a lame trip.

        Had you done your research, you could have done a good trip like a road trip to Lake Tahoe for some summer snowboarding, then Yosemite National Park, out the back entrance and down the 395 past Mount Whitney and then spent a few days in Orange County at Newport and Laguna Beach. There are literally 1000 epis west coast trips you could have done. But you chose to walk around skid row in Hollywood and then b***h about it. You're a bad planner.

        Point Dume in Malibu is beautiful. So is Ventura. LA is really just for driving through, looking at through the windows, maybe visiting a museum or two, and going someone else better. The N. Cali, Oregon and Washington coastlines have a lot of natural beauty, if that's your thing, but I would avoid the cities.

    This would be so cool if it was part of a building and had a purpose outside of being neat

    Python temple was such a fricking tourist trap. Had to pay the preist 2 dollars to be allowed in then 3 to see a ceremony. A bunch of snakes on dirty plaster benches while preist proudly tells me how they practically abduct 12 year olds into the "clergy". Don't support that shit. Immoral tourist trap.

    I actually thought the Mona Lisa was nice.
    Yes it was annoying that there was a massive crowd of people taking photos of it at all times, but still, every gay likes to say it's shit to make themselves look like le heckin art expert.
