7 Cringeworthy Tourist Attractions That I’ve Ever Visited

Reading Time: 6 minutes

I think if you took some time to ask people who love traveling why they bother to leave their comfort zone and flee to some foreign place, the answer would be quite clear: for us, it’s always good to experience some place that we’ve never been before.

But then again, don’t think that all places that we’ve visited gave us some satisfaction, because sometimes you expected something too much that when you got there, you did nothing but cringe because you were just not ready for such an ugly truth.

I mean, with the technology and all, pretty much like your face with Instagram filter, some places look even greater in the pictures and when you get there, well clearly the pictures are simply overrated.

The question was understandable as I couldn’t stop complaining about how boring and expensive everything was in Singapore when I was around. So according to Cata, “Why Hong Kong? It’s only like more Chinese Singapore!”

My main reason to choose Hong Kong is actually to visit Macao, and by the time I tried to find a cheap accommodation in the city, I had a hard time pretty much like I did in Singapore.

To be fair, the night rate for a hotel in Hong Kong is pretty much better than in Singapore. With HKD 210 (equal to around SGD 38), I could get a single room in the location that is quite convenient. For the same reason, I decided to book a room at Days Hotel in Chung King Mansion.
