45 Times Tourists Traveled To See Their Favorite Places But Got Disappointed

We love taking a few snaps while on holiday, keeping memories alive and sharing our experiences in the world’s most beautiful and fascinating places with our friends. Good travel photographs capture the very essence of a destination; whether it be glorious landscapes, colorful culture, architecture, history or local cuisine.

We celebrate amazing travel photography and rightly so, but what about the times when it all goes wrong? Those hilarious occasions when people have traveled across the world and completely failed to share its beauty in a photograph, times when they would’ve found more culture in their local supermarket than that blurry pic of the pyramids. This list of disappointing travel photos is funny for its self-awareness; these people understand the irony of traveling thousands of miles to see something that just happens to be cloaked in fog or undergoing repairs.

Scroll down below to see a collection of the very worst travel pics ever taken, and share your own in the comments!
