Some people are impossible to impress. Imagine a person who looks at a 5,000-year-old monument and downplays it as a pile of rocks. Or someone who goes to a castle that was originally built in 1068 and calls it a 'Disneyland wannabe'.
They shouldn't be allowed to visit the United Kingdom. But they're not only traveling to the country, they're trashing it public on Tripadvisor, leaving one-star reviews to some of the world's top attractions.
I just hope they're doing it as a joke, otherwise we have to call the Queen and tell her she needs to sign a few deportation papers ASAP!
The United Kingdom is the 10th biggest tourist destination in the world, with over 37 million visiting the country in 2018. The tourism industry contributed to £213 ($284) billion to the country's GDP in 2017, and this number is expected to grow to £265 ($353) billion by 2028.
Tripadvisor itself describes it as "a country filled with epic landscapes, fairy-tales castles and vibrant modern cities bursting with unforgettable experiences to share. Whether it's gazing at the London skyline from the top of iconic St Paul's and sipping the finest single malt whisky in a pub in the Scottish Highlands, or tracing footsteps of Banksy in Bristol, discovering musical legends in Liverpool and exploring the history of Cardiff Castle in the stunning heart of Wales, there’s a Britain that’s perfect for you."
But don't worry even if you visit the UK just for one night and the only place you go to is the pub. British people tend to find humor everywhere, including dark or bad situations. However, they often use sarcasm and take the occasional stab at someone else’s expense, so it's important not to take these jokes to heart as they are only meant in jest.
