UNESCO World Heritage Sites are often a travelers’ first port of call when visiting a new country. In Peru you have Machu Picchu which is visited by thousands of people every year, Croatia has the old town of Dubrovnik and India has one of the most beautiful buildings ever created, the Taj Mahal.
These sites are famous for being a landmark or area that has special significance whether this is cultural, historic or scientific and are often seen as places to be preserved at all costs. Not only are they great places to visit, but they also provide travelers an insight into some of the most important times in history.
Over tourism can threaten these famous sites and the increase in travelers wanting the visit these spectacular places causes strain on them.
