As summer rolls around, we realize that we’re getting close to tourist season– when everyone decides it’s time to vacation in a new place and tourist drive locals absolutely crazy. When visiting a new place, at least try to blend in a little bit so as not to disrupt the local custom and culture. Don’t be an obnoxious tourist–like these 20 people! Here are ridiculous photos of very obvious tourists.
1. Fake it till you make it?
Yeah, don’t do this. Not only is it really obvious that you used photoshop, now nobody will believe anything you say. You didn’t even leave the country, did you?
2. Surprise of a lifetime
This man has literally no idea that there’s a cheetah above his head during a safari in the Serengeti. It’s probably better this way.
3. Kick it on down
Ah, the classic leaning tower of Pisa pose…except this time she’s trying to kick it over. Wow. How creative. Not.
4. Too bad it’s nothing special
Is everybody out there doing the dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller or are they just trying to take a photo of themselves in Pisa?
5. You’ll definitely want to remember this garbage
Especially if the leftover McDonald’s is the reason you have a big gut. Go ahead– snap a shot of the garbage.
6. Surprise friend
It turns out those girls didn’t actually want to take a selfie with the stingray. Too bad, so sad for him.
7. Aren’t they adorable
These tourists just can’t help but snap a million pics of a tiny squirrel. Because they must have nothing better to do.
8. Close…but no cigar
Sorry buddy. You’re not even a little bit close to looking like you’re touching the tip of the Eiffel tower. Looks like the person who took your photo just didn’t care.
9. A playful bully
How would you like to be trying to snorkel, but a dang seal keeps coming up and blowing in your tube. We aren’t sure if the final outcome would be more hilarious or terrifying.
10. Yeah, if you could refrain from touching the statue…that’d be great
I know it’s tempting…but please don’t put thing in the hands of statues or hang things around their necks. You wouldn’t like it if we did it to you and you couldn’t move around…
11. The ultimate shot
We aren’t sure who got a better photo…this guy who got down on his knees, disregarding his belly and fanny pack to take a photo…or the person who took a picture of him doing this.
12. Swallowing the sun
Yes, it can be quite fun to be able to touch the sun. Isn’t this what dream are made of?
13. We’ve never seen so many disposable cameras…
Asians sure do love to play tourist. And they are sure to take photos of every single thing they see.
14. Gee, I wonder where they’re headed
This party gang is all about the statue of Liberty.
15. Ski tourists
We see you. We know who you are. When you can’t make it down the mountain in one piece, you should probably consider a beach vacation next time.
16. Patient tiger weighs his options…
That is one calm tiger to allow that woman to sit on him long enough to take a picture.
17. How to spot a tourist
Well, this one’s pretty easy.
18. People looking up in the sky
Yep, you guessed it. Hordes of tourists.
19. If their skin seems to be the wrong shade…
They’re probably a tourist.
20. No habla Spanish?
If they speak only English and act like they’re better because of it– beware. This is a sure sign of a rude, obnoxious tourist.
