Why you may want avoid these popular destinations this year

Easyvoyage Logo By Charlie Campbell of Easyvoyage | Slide 1 of 11: Machu Picchu is one of Peru's key tourist attractions. But the fact of the matter is that this famous Inca settlement isn't built to cope with the thousands of visitors it receives each year, or the erosion and pollution they cause which threaten its long-term status as a tourist site. The Peruvian Ministry of Culture has recently put in place various measures to lessen visitor impact, but if you're serious about preserving and protecting this site of such exceptional cultural and natural importance, then don't visit at all.

Often we talk about our bucket-list destinations - those wonderful places on Earth that we are simply dying to see. This time we decided to do something new and have compiled an 'avoid list'. Whether it is due to mass tourism spoiling sacred environments, disappointing landmarks, or high crime rates, we want you to be aware of all the places you definitely shouldn't be travelling to in 2018.
