Say what you will about Reddit and its users, but when you want completely unvarnished opinions on things, Reddit is all too willing to serve. Recently, a Reddit thread cropped up about what different Redditors thought were the most disappointing travel destinations they’d ever been to! Scanning through the thread is enlightening, to say the least.
However, there were a few comments from different users that are definitely worth taking a closer look at. If you wanted to know what Reddit users think are the most disappointing travel destinations (and why), then you’re in for a serious treat. Check it out!
1. Sentosa Beach (Singapore)
“You look out to the ocean and all you see is oil tankers and factories spewing smoke on the horizon. It was like some sort of futuristic dystopia”
2. Casablanca (Morocco)
Don’t let your love of the movie blind you: “The least-interesting place in a fascinating country. Really, Casablanca is just a dumpy business district on the coast,” says one Redditor.
“I’ve never felt so unwelcome. The police follow you everywhere, my Passport was being checked constantly. I just felt like I was being watched where ever I went.”
“Yes you can stay on a resort and have the time of your life, but you can do that on any of the islands.”
5. Daytona Beach (Florida)
“There is literally nothing to do there, aside from going to the shitty, dilapidated beach and eating at Joe’s Crab Shack.”
6. Cape Canaveral (Florida)
Sure, there are space ships, but as one Redditor points out: “You should see Cape Canaveral. It’s like they finished filming I Dream Of Jeannie and time stopped.”
“It really is just a big rock and not the country it technically claims to be. The hotel sucked. A car had washed up into the swimming pool.”
“What a s**t hole. Rest of the Maldives was incredible,” says one Redditor who was not impressed with Maldives’ capital.
9. Blackpool (England)
“I went into a newsagents to buy a little bit of food, and it was, no word of a lie, 90% alcohol. Including test tube shots at the counter.”
10. Naples (Italy)
“Garbage collection almost completely stopped for years now because of the mafia, that’s why you see trash everywhere.”
“Overpriced, fake, completely lacking in culture. Took an open top bus tour to see the city (it’s sprawling) and every other sightseeing stop was a f***ing mall.”
12. Los Angeles
“Homeless people sleeping next to the stars on the “Walk of Fame” is the perfect metaphor for show business.”
“Boston is like trying to navigate a plate of spaghetti. Seriously, the roads in Boston just don’t make sense.”
