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.

We all have things which get on our nerves.

Some people have a fairly high tolerance level, and are only truly perturbed by things which are beyond the bounds of common decency, or which are universally accepted as annoying or inconvenient.

Others are not so lucky, and tend to be set off by things which might go completely unnoticed by everyone else.

How many of us heard the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" as a child?

Or were told by their parents that watching too much television would make your eyes fall out?

Needless to say, these, as well as other sayings and superstitions, were not 100% accurate, possibly even having no truth to them whatsoever

Rather, these were merely a way to encourage, or scare, children into better eating habits, or getting away from the TV once and a while.

Some however, have, took these and other unsubstantiated pieces of information literally, and continue to believe them to be true.

Redditor wste96 was curious to believe what other falsehoods people continue to believe, in spite of proof to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What's the biggest lie ever told that we, as a society, still believe in?"
