colinspooky: Well, I think it's awful of these tourist site owners not to keep the fog away every day. That's just poor management.
Mouren: The tourist complaining about other tourists at the Great Wall is ironic./now a thread derail on the real definition of "irony"
Mugato: I'm pretty sure you go to Hell for giving the Christ statue one star. I think it's one of the commandments. The other set, the one in the New Testament.
To The Escape Zeppelin!: So nobody assembling this list realized that one of the reviews of the Colosseum was a joke?
bearcats1983: Look, I know the sellers are just trying to make money, but you can only say no so many times before it gets annoying. Some of them can get very physically or verbally aggressive. Who wants to be intimidated to buy some cheap souvenir while they're on vacation?
lucksi: To The Escape Zeppelin!: So nobody assembling this list realized that one of the reviews of the Colosseum was a joke?That could just as well have been a real review by an American
Strik3r: This just in......Capatalism has begun to resemble a runaway train.In case any of you have not already noticed, go to any major even in any big city and you will find the American versions of these people. $5.00 + bottles of water, $8.00 bottles of beer, 4 - 5 dollar hotdogs, $150 + concert tickets, major league sporting events do EXACTLY the same thing.....These 7 wonders vendors are just rough copies of the same thing.Any time a vendor (seller of most any product) can corner a consumer and flush them of all of their cash, they seem to have no hesitation at all, despite the fact that capitalism cannot survive without consumers.......
dpaul007: Most of these can be summarized into "People who look different and smell bad want me to give them money!"
Plato's Salty Discharge: Yeah, and, like, who the fark do those grimy street merchants think they are trying to sell me things so they can feed their family? It, like, totally ruined my Chichen Itza experience. At least when we took our kids, Caleb, Caiden, and Chastity to Mohenjodaro the people were kind enough to beg first. The kids learned the meaning of charity then.
Slaxl: Also, since the only genuine "eighth" wonder of the world is Andre the Giant, someone should do a review of him on TripAdvisor.
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Mugato: I'm pretty sure you go to Hell for giving the Christ statue one star. I think it's one of the commandments. The other set, the one in the New Testament.I dunno. The New Testament is pretty old too. And the hero dies in the middle.

RalphW: People should watch Rick Steves before going overseas and learn the difference between being a tourist vs. a traveler.
Slaxl: The only list of wonders that counts is the original Civlisation 1 wonders of the ancient world.The Colossus of RhodesThe Great Library of AlexandriaThe Great Wall of ChinaThe Hanging Gardens of BabylonThe Lighthouse of AlexandriaThe Oracle of DelphiThe Pyramids of Giza.Everything else can go to hell.I don't know why it took me so long before I realised that you could only build nukes after the Manhattan Project. I blame not reading the manual as a kid, and being a kid.
barefoot in the head: and the Great Wall is not part of the list.
