16 Vacation Spots That Looked Nicer Online Than In Real Life





We must admit that we’re sometimes guilty of going to places just basing our interest in the photos that we’ve seen online. We felt that the images we’re already enough to convince us and that there’s no need in doing more in-depth research anymore.

Unfortunately, not everything we see online is the real deal. With the magic of Photoshop and taking photos in perfect angles, these posts would easily trick us into booking them as soon as possible. However, most of these places are actually less impressive once we finally arrived at our destination. Here are 16 vacation spots that looked nicer online than in real life.

1. When you’re excited to go to your Airbnb and play pool with your pals.

2. “Our vacation rental was described as having a golf course view. Technically, that was true…”

3. What is the purpose of the window then?

4. When the view in your “private balcony” is a wall.

5. When the fog is your only view.

6. Well, this is depressing.

7. When you booked the Airbnb because the pool looked tempting.

8. “We booked a hotel last minute in Portland, the view was… breathtaking.”

9. So near yet so far.

10. The power of zoom and angle.

11. “When you go to a scenic overlook but you’re in a cloud.”

12. When Big Ben was under construction during your honeymoon trip.

13. When an infinity pool looks more like a kiddie pool.

14. When you climbed to the mountaintops to see the view – there’s none.
15. When the hotel promised a courtyard. Techincally, they didn’t lie.
16. “My vacation in Ireland and seeing the Cliffs of Moher.”

They say it’s not the destination that matters, but the journey. While that might be true, it would be awesome if the destinations are also worth the journey!
