Top 15 Worst Tourist Traps In The World

All over the world, from good old California to Thailand, there are places that are just built to take your money. You know it, the people running the destinations know it, but guess what? You are going to go anyway.

You can't help it, the tourist traps on this list are just too hard to pass up. I mean everyone has been talking about them your entire life; you simply have to go.  Some of them were actually really cool places at one point, but have now been ruined by too many tourists and the smell of the almighty buck. Others are just things that have been hyped way up, but when you go they are underwhelming to say the least.

Still though, you have to go so that when you get back from your vacation you can tell all your family and friends what you did, and put up the photos on Facebook. You can't help it really, you got tricked, that is why they call them tourist traps after all.

Here are the 15 Worst Tourist Traps in the World. See you at the line to get in.

Ah, the Walk of Fame. If you don't know what it is, then let me explain. There is a sidewalk of sorts. Engraved on this popular sidewalk are a bunch of stars. Featured on the stars  are famous people's names. That is pretty much it. Except for the fact of course that surrounding the walk of fame are numerous businesses and street performers all trying to get your money. If this sounds good to you then congrats, you are the target market for all of the people that make money from tourists.
