Jetsetters Share Their Favorite Destinations That Totally Lived Up To The Hype

The travel and tourism business is one of the worlds largest industries with a global economic contribution of over $7.6 trillion in just 2016. Most people have a bucket list of the places they'd like to go, but some end up disappointed when they get there.

So Reddit user Ohmygodashoppinglist asked:

"Travelers of Reddit, what place DID live up to the hype?"

Here are their recommendations.

Ireland

Ireland. People were beyond friendly and it was like a jolly pub celebration complete with trad every night.

Canada

The Cabot Trail, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Greece

Did live up to the hype: The Greek islands.

Did not live up to the hype: Athens.

United States

Yosemite National Park in California. Everything was super sized and beautiful. Hiking in a normal local park, even if it has mountains and waterfalls, just feels small now.

Czech Republic

Prague. It was like a metropolitan medieval town.

South Korea

Lotteworld (Seoul, South Korea) the largest indoor/outdoor amusement park.

United States

Kauai, Hawaii.

Scotland

Edinburgh in the Christmas season. It was magical.

New Zealand

I went there this July so in the middle of their winter and it was autumnal. I walked up to Roy's Peak and went hiking on a glacier and if it was summer I could have gone surfing in the same day.

Austria

I felt like no matter which direction I looked it was like a picture from a postcard. I felt like no matter which direction I looked it was like a picture from a postcard.

Canada

The Pacific Rim National Park, British Columbia, Canada. It's a temperate rainforest with huge trees that are hundreds of years old.

Iceland

The coolest thing I've done on any trip.

Ireland

The Cliffs of Moher.

The $4.00 go-carts on the main drag at the Wisconsin Dells. Super cheap and you get to go for like 10 minutes.

Scotland

Arthur's seat in Edinburgh Scotland. Incredible climb for an incredible view of the country.

Japan

The Inari Gates in Kyoto, Japan.

South Africa

The view from the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town. It was like a vision of eternity. No photograph could possibly show how how beautiful that view is.

Canada

Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.The most beautiful place Ive ever visited.

Norway

Endless nature, giant pretty mountains, drinkable see-through water, so many rocks to jump on, very few people in sight.

Japan

The Akihabara arcade district in Tokyo.

Canada

Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada.

Breaking up is hard to do.

And when you get the law involved, it's even worse. But sometimes people don't need the law's help to make things overcomplicated, they just have a grand ole time making that happen themselves.
