Where would you like to not see again?

A new book published by US based author Catherine Price has been causing a bit of controversy around one of Ireland’s most famous tourist attractions. The book in question is ‘101 Places Not to See Before You Die’ and the attraction that came in at 55th place was Cork’s Blarney Stone. Price reckons you could do with missing out on kissing this famous stone of eloquence mainly because of ‘trace bits of spit left behind with every pucker’!

Price goes on to name another one hundred places you really should not bother visiting such as Beijing’s Tap Water Museum, a ‘vomitorium’, Eurodisney and the world bog championship! I can’t see myself rushing to see any of these on my next trip; however my inner child might win over when it comes to Eurodisney!

All this talk of weird and worthless tourist attractions got us chatting in Hostels.com HQ about what tourist attractions we have been to that we would never return to again, even if we were offered copious amounts of cash to do so! Have you ever been on holidays and visited an attraction that was a complete let down? Or even come across a new attraction and really wish you hadn’t? We want to make a list of Hostels.com’s fans places not to visit before you die! Leave your suggestion and it could just make our list!
