City with the worst overall tourism experience

What city has the dirtiest streets among the hundreds of prominent tourist destinations, according to nearly 55,000 Tripadvisor reviewers?

According to travelers’ judgment collected on Tripadvisor’s evaluation, the shameful winner is Mumbai, India.

There is more: Mumbai also ranks at the bottom in terms of ease of travel within the city. No surprise there, we can only imagine the flabbergasted tourists trying to get into a Mumbai local at rush hour – not everyone is a hardy backpacker. Even more important, Mumbai also provides the worst overall experience for tourists, reviewers have said. Mumbai is also third from last for family-friendliness, and the third most unattractive.

Mumbai shares these dubious distinctions with such stalwarts as Moscow (worst hotels, most unhelpful locals, most unhelpful and unfriendly taxi drivers); Beijing (second worst locals and taxi drivers) and Marrakech (worst public transport, third worst restaurants). These four cities take up most of the bottom rankings across categories.

Considering this emphatic thumbs-down by young and networked tourists, Mumbai, and other Indian cities, will have to pull up their socks. Monuments and culture will not be enough to pull in greater numbers of tourists if they are not comfortable being here.
