Study ranks world’s most criticized tourist attractions
Most people plan their trips and vacations around the attractions they want to visit, such as traveling to Paris in order to see the mona-lisa At the Louvre.
Naturally, some of the attractions that attract people are underwhelming, even underwhelming. So instead of wasting your time and money traveling to see something that might be disappointing, MrQ online casino has ranked the top 10 most reviewed attractions in the world.
The study analyzed 27 of the world’s most popular tourist attractions and recorded all one-star and two-star reviews on TripAdvisor to determine their rankings.
Coming in at the top of the most criticized tourist attraction is none other than the Hollywood Walk of Fame. There were 17,616 reviews of the popular Los Angeles destination, but 20% of reviews were either one or two stars. By comparison, the Great Wall of China is the least reviewed attraction, as there were only 114 one- and two-star reviews out of a total of 23,785.
There are more than 2,700 celebrity stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to their website, and Hotels.com says more than 10 million people visit the attraction each year.
The Palace of Versailles in France and Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England, both have over 14,000 online reviews, but still managed to place second and third respectively on the list. 17% of the 14,608 reviews for the Palace of Versailles were one or two stars, while Stonehenge had 8% of the one or two star reviews out of their 14,498 reviews.
Back in Western California, the iconic Hollywood Sign has been referenced through TV, movies, songs, and more, making it a major attraction for visitors. Although, out of 7,675 online reviews, it received the fourth highest number of one or two star reviews at 6%.
The following three attractions all received one or two stars in 5% of cases, but the total number of reviews varied. Big Ben in London has 31,783 reviews on TripAdvisor, but 5% of them are one or two stars. While the White House has 8,130 reviews with 5% with one or two stars, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy has 14,633 reviews with 5% with only one or two stars.
The most reviewed tourist attraction in the MrQ ranking was the Empire State Building, with a total of 92,362 reviews on TripAdvisor. But it looks like the 102-story monument isn’t all visitors think it will be, as 4% left one or two stars. The Empire State Building’s website says that more than 4 million people visit each year, as many are drawn to the observation decks that overlook all of New York City.
Built in the 26th century BC, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt attract over 14.7 million visitors a year and were one of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Despite its mysterious history, 4% of the 8,142 reviews left on TripAdvisor were one or two stars.
Buckingham Palace in London, home to the British monarchy since 1837 after being built in 1703, completes the top 10 of the world’s most criticized attractions. Only 3% of 29,303 reviews were one or two stars, as more than 50,000 Palace guests as guests at events such as banquets, lunches and dinners, according to the royal family’s website.
