However, despite the enthusiasm of tourists to take pictures of the moving train, the government of Hanoi has ordered the closure of cafes and other commercial spaces on the edge of the railway line for security reasons and is seeking to prevent the use of cameras and camcorders at these locations.
#5 – Big Sur, California, United States of America

Big Sur is an extraordinary destination on Highway 1, the road that crosses the California coast and is full of wonderful scenery, picturesque beaches, waterfalls, and even hot springs.
It is a very popular place that attracts millions of tourists a year and with them also appears the trash and human waste along the road, which contributes to the degradation of one of the unique places to visit in the world.
In addition, there is also the issue of illegal camping that, thanks to carelessness or bad manners of people, causes dozens of fires every year.
Authorities are aware of this and next year they want to include free buses to take tourists to certain areas of the region and implement a park reservation system for a better territorial organization.
#6 – Angkor Wat, Cambodia
The Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia is one of 10 places to see before you die because it is a unique and transcendent place on earth.
This monument is part of the UNESCO World Heritage, but due to the numerous tourists visiting it every year, its foundations are in danger – the temple steps are increasingly slippery, the wall surfaces more eroded by the scraping of backpacks, among other obvious signs of erosion.
Cambodia’s most popular tourist attraction has already begun implementing measures to end this negative impact of tourism next year by limiting the number of tourists who can access the temple.
However, in order to preserve this heritage, it will be necessary to go further: put on protective glass and walkways, regulate the use of water in the region and promote other tourist locations.
It should also be noted that next year the ban on elephant travel for tourists comes into force, which is to be applauded because the animals are badly treated (mostly drugged to offer a beautiful souvenir photo to tourists).
