The travel and tourism industry is one of the worlds largest industries with a global economic contribution of over $7.6 trillion in just 2016. Most people have a bucket list of the places they'd like to go, but some end up disappointed when they get there.

So Reddit user Ohmygodashoppinglist asked:

"Travelers of Reddit, what place DID live up to the hype?"

Here are their recommendations.
