Ah, holidays. It's that precious little time we get between work and yet more work. Surely we're going to use it to the fullest and travel to one of the world's great wonders? Wouldn't it be majestic to breathe in the majesty and their beauty of monuments both man-made and natural?

Unfortunately, the reason why you want to see those places is also the reason why a bajillion other people want to see those places, too. So if you end up going there, you might find yourself rubbing elbows with many other tourists, all of them as indignant about this experience as you. Just look at the pictures if you don't believe us!
