Back in October, Budget Travel had a slideshow about a frustrating topic, travel sites where photography is not allowed.
It drives me nuts when I visit a site and see the horrible rule posted informing us that no photos are allowed. It’s pretty much a guaranteed way to start off my visit in a negative way.
I tend to have a hard time following the rules and will make an attempt to sneak in a few photos anyway. If/ when I do this, I always shut off my flash just in case the reason for no photography is the potential harm a flash can cause.
Two sites come to mind where I took photos when I wasn’t supposed to.
Here is Budget Travel’s List:
- Main Reading Room- Library of Congress
- Taj Mahal- Agra, India
- Amish Communities- Lancaster County, PA
- Rosslyn Chapel- Roslin, Scotland
- The Valley of the Kings- Luxor, Egypt
- Emirates Palace- Abu Dhabi, UAE
- Bachkovo Monastery- Plovdiv, Bulgaria
- Golden Gai District- Tokyo, Japan
- Lenin’s Mausoleum- Moscow, Russia
What are your thoughts on travel sites where photography is not allowed? Do you tend to follow or break the rules to get that special photo?
