The Daily Navigator strives to help you make the best decisions in travel. While we produce content according with strict editorial integrity this post may contain references to partner products. Here’s a full explanation for how our team makes money .

The best tourist attractions are like a good dream: unforgettable, inspiring, and leave you wanting more, while the worst ones are like a bad dream: overwhelming, disappointing, and leave you slightly traumatized. 

Luckily, Stasher, a travel company that connects short-term visitors with local hotels and shops for secure luggage storage, they have identified the best and worst tourist attractions worldwide. Their analysts evaluated 99 global attractions, assigning each a score out of ten based on factors such as Google reviews, distance from the closest international airport, tourist safety, and TikTok popularity.

The 10 best tourist attractions in the world:

  1. The Hungarian Parliament Building in Hungary
  2. Disneyland Paris in France
  3. The Blue Lagoon in Iceland
  4. Plaza de Espana in Spain
  5. Angkor Wat in Cambodia
  6. St. Peter’s Basilica in Italy
  7. El Ateneo Grand Splendid in Argentina
  8. Acropolis of Athens in Greece
  9. Museum of New Zealand in New Zealand
  10. Christ the Redeemer in Brazil


Although there were winners, not every tourist attraction fared well in the evaluation, with many scoring low due to overcrowding, filthiness, and concerns over safety. The Hollywood Walk of Fame took on all of these complaints, earning its title of the world’s worst tourist destination, with a score of 3.42. Not at all surprising as I tell every tourist who comes to LA that it is not worth even a glimpse. See the rest of the 10 worst attractions here.

When it comes to tourist attractions, the best ones will give you memories to last a lifetime, while the worst ones will give you a lifetime of memories you’d rather forget. But, remember, every tourist attraction is subjective, and one man or woman’s trash is another’s treasure, so take these lists with a grain of salt.
