Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:

"What is a popular tourist destination you have no interest in visiting?"


Oasis in the desert? No thank you.

"Dubai."

"Why and whats special about it?"

"Its a modern city in a desert."- Maximum_Calendar_791.

"Dubai."

"A fake city with fake people, no human rights, where the world's tallest buildings hide corruption and slavery in their shadows."

"It's like someone decided to take every problem of mankind and concentrate it in one spot."- PayNoNoticeOfMe.

"Dubai one i think it is ugly two I would die in two minutes of me being there I can't stand anything above 40 c°."- BookWormPerson.

One of the seven wonders is one too many for me.

"The pyramids. "

"Too many horror stories of Egypt."- Aemiom.

Landlocked.

"Not really a destination, but taking a cruise."- Shortbus_Playboy.

Mountains aren't really my thing.

"Everest."

"Just why."

"You use a bunch of money to get in there them come down."

"And trash your whole way there. It's literally a corner in the Earth insufferable for humans and we still made a way to go there to trash it."- ACLullaby.

It's in my own backyard... but still not interested.

"I have lived about 15km away from the Burj Khalifa ever since it was made."

"I could not care any less besides the occasional pointing out the 'shiny tall building' to my nieces.- legolosss.

The pictures are enough for me.

"Mount Rushmore."

"Friends who've made the journey to Mount Rushmore mostly say it was no big deal and not worth the effort or expense to travel there."- Back2Bach.

Hustle and Bustle? No thanks.

"Anything busy.'

"Whether it's cities, structures, I don't care."

"I'd rather go to a boring empty quiet place than a place full of people."- TheSmeep.

They're watching us.

"That creepy a** place in Japan with all the realistic dolls."

"No thank you."

Some dream of paying a visit to these places.

Others hope they never have to set foot there, and will choose to leave it to the other millions of tourists.

To each, their own.

Be it to a foreign country on the other side of the world, or merely a town a few miles north or south of you, there is always a slightly uneasy feeling of being in a new place.

Sometimes, however, you don't only suffer from homesickness upon arriving, but find yourself genuinely scared.

Perhaps you don't find yourself particularly welcome by the residents, or there are no people to be seen for miles around.

Either way, there are places all over the world where not long after arriving, the only thing on the minds of visitors was to get out of there as fast as they could.

Redditor 8-tentacles was curious to learn the places fellow Reddit users would never set foot in again under any circumstances, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest town/city you’ve been to, and why?"

Nothing could be further from the truth. Humans in general are not simple, straightforward creatures, but men are just ... baffling.

At least as far as the women of Reddit are concerned.

The land Down Under is one of the most highly anticipated travel destinations for tourists around the world. Australia has fascinating history, beautiful sights, great food, cool wildlife, and some pretty cool people.

But as with any travel destination, there's bound to be a certain degree of culture shock. Have a seat and listen up, because you're in for some surprises.

Australians shared some information with us after Redditor emchmu123 asked the online community,

"Australians of Reddit, what is something that the rest of the world would be surprised or shocked to hear about the country?"
