Lonely Planet: Top Tourist Hot Spots Worth The Crowds

Back in April Lonely Planet had an interesting article online that I wanted to share. 
The article is about top tourist hot spots worth the crowds. The list is made up of an interesting and amazing group of sites/ places. Odds are, if a site is overly crowded it must be worth visiting for one reason or another…

Here is the list:

  1. Angkor Wat, Cambodia
  2. Prague’s Old Town, Czech Republic
  3. Eiffel Tower, France
  4. Florence, Italy
  5. Grand Canyon, USA
  6. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Zambia
  7. Pyramids, Egypt
  8. Taj Mahal, India
  9. Machu Picchu, Peru
  10. Uluru, Australia

From the list above, I’ve been to 8 of 10 sites. I found all of them to be well worth visiting and some weren’t even so busy or crowded! The sites I have not visited are Victoria Falls and the Taj Mahal. Both are high on my list of places to visit in the future. I almost went to Vic Falls on each of my trips to Africa but it just did not fit into our itineraries. When I visited the Grand Canyon, I went to the area known as Grand Canyon West, home of the Skywalk. I would also love to visit the sections of the Grand Canyon that make up the National Park someday.
