There is just no pleasing some people.
While the opportunity to see some of the world’s most famous landmarks may be awe-inspiring for some, they inspire others to spend DAYS complaining online about their experience.
New research has revealed that all up, people around the globe have spent 402 hours (that’s 17.5 days) complaining about the Eiffel Tower alone.
No other attraction came close to the amount of time people have spent complaining about the iconic Parisian structure, which has attracted 19,303 negative reviews in total.
Uswitch analysed 26,904 negative reviews on Tripadvisor of famous attractions to find out which one people hated the most.
Having said that, the research also revealed that people are 21 per cent more likely to leave a negative review than a positive one.
Rome’s Colosseum was the second most complained about attraction with 1,944 negative reviews equating to 1.7 days, followed by London’s Big Ben which attracted 1,597 negative reviews, or 1.3 days of negativity.
Unfortunately, Australia’s Sydney Opera House made the top 10 most complained about reviews, attracting 299 unhappy customers.
