David, it's the DailyFail. The article is just clickbait filler, we're not discussing the high art of journalism here but at least use a better source for a critique than Wikipedia.
I'm not sure the actual content of the linked article was the main point of the post, but rather an opening for the topic of what makes you choose a place to travel to. The OP can correct me if I'm wrong about that.
Um, so this was by some luggage storage company and based in part from TikTok reviews. Color me unimpressed. The Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China were included in that list. Why? Because they were crowded. Give me a break.
Thank you Nancy.
And yes that's right it's a "top 10 list" sort of article based on the scrapping of poor reviews from social media which seems superficial. So, yes as Nancy pointed out my question was an opening to discuss why "you" might select a travel destination, but also, a question of "your" expectations. Is a person traveling to a destination because it's everyone else's must see, or the current popular/social media-popular hot spot. Or is the destination something that piques a personal interest. CJean -- right, Taj Mahal and the Great Wall are historically and culturally significant sites. I think we all understand that, but is that the case for every visitor? For those that complain about crowds, or it's too hot, the site/attraction is just average and so on, what was it that made "you" want to visit that site and what were "you" expecting?
Why does someone choose to visit Gettysburg? Is it because they have an understanding and appreciation for the importance and history of the battle and the site? The history of the 1863 battle? It's use as a WW1 training camp or WW2 POW camp? And when a visitor gives a poor review and is dismissive of the site, saying something such as, it was boring, crowded, just trees and fields so nothing to see.
Treemoss2 I'm having a hard time seeing your contradictions.
