15 Terrible Tourist Tales of Vandalism and Destruction
Is it just me, or are tourists getting more and more entitled? They're brazenly committing acts of vandalism and destruction in some of the world's most beloved destinations.From Portugal to Peru, Thailand to Easter Island, it seems like no place is safe from the hands (and sometimes butts) of these wayward travelers.
So what's behind this uptick in bad behavior? Are people just generally becoming jerks? Or has social media given everyone a false sense of entitlement, leading them to believe that they can do whatever they want without consequences?
Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: if you're thinking about vandalizing a cultural site on your next vacation, think again. Not only will you be deeply disappointing locals who take pride in their heritage, but you could also end up facing serious legal penalties. So please, for the sake of everyone involved - including yourself - keep your hands to yourself when traveling abroad.
