We're so used to seeing awe-inspiring travel shots on places like Instagram, but the truth of the matter is that not even an overused filter would cover up the disappointing reality of travelling. From the famous beaches that you see with nobody on them, the monuments that are completely empty and to the mountains you see climbers bravely scaling on their own as they take on the worst that nature can throw at them, expectations are easily ruined thanks to what we see online.

To prove this point here are 20 photos of 10 different popular tourist hotspots around the world with your expectations vs. reality.
