The WORST Tourist Trap in India

The WORST Tourist Trap in India

This restaurant and souvenir shop on India's famous Golden Triangle route is the worst tourist trap I've ever come across! The souvenirs are massively marked up, their cruddy restaurant charges 5-star prices, and they're busy breaking the law by rubbing out the Maximum Retail Price (MRP) on their snacks too.

This video will also help you learn the basic prices for souvenirs in India. Always buy them from a market rather than greedy stores like these. Even your hotel's souvenir store will be a better option.

Avoid Motel Gangaur (मोटल गणगौर) on NH11 Agra-Jaipur road at all costs!

Why Foreigners Don't Trust Indians in India (Tourist Trap Scam)

Kerala's famous Chinese Fishing Nets are the site for a popular sympathy scam that's taking advantage of foreigners. The fishermen pretend to be friendly locals and invite you onto their fishing nets, only to ask you for a donation!

This is precisely why a lot of foreigners are worried about meeting Indians on the street in India. They've had too many bad experiences with scammers who they thought were friendly locals. Scammers in India see foreigners as walking ATMs that they can manipulate into giving a lot of money.

Travel safely and confidently in India with my Quick-Start Safety Guide at

In some cases of this fishing net scam, the fisherman will take your photo and then not give your camera back until you pay them enough money. Many foreigners have been caught up by this scam.

It's a misconception that scams aren't taking place in South India. In most cases, local Indians have no idea these scams exist because they don't frequent their city's tourist attractions and aren't targeted by scammers.

Avoid Penang's WORST Tourist Traps. ????????

I wasted my time and money at these Penang tourist traps so that you don't have to.

The Clan Jetties of Penang: Some old houses on wooden stilts next to the sea. They've almost all been turned into shops selling tourist tat. The Clan Jetties somehow has rating of 4.0 (out of 5) on Google Maps. That just shows you how easily pleased the average tourist is. Buying tacky souvenirs and taking cringy Instagram photos makes for a such a wonderful touristy time, apparently.

Fort Cornwallis: An old fort with nothing inside it except a few rusty old cannons and gift shop. Heavy construction is going on at 3 of the 4 sides and has huge sections of it closed off to the public. Foreigners pay double here! It's basically a scam that are allowing people to pay full price for a ticket without mentioning the heavy construction and closed off areas first. I usually enjoy visiting old forts but this was my worst fort experience in any country.

Do yourself a favour by avoiding the popular tourist attractions in Penang and instead spend your time eating up all the delicious food that Penang is famous for. That's probably why you came to Penang in the first place.

Avoid this tourist SCAM in Colombo, Sri Lanka. ????????

When travelling in Sri Lanka as a foreigner you'll no doubt be approached by men who try to appear as friendly citizens. They will attempt to coax you to somewhere, such as a beautiful temple that you must go and see. Watch as this man follows me through the streets, desperately trying to convince me to go see the (fake) Tsunami Temple, despite me showing zero interest in it.

These scammers and their cheap tricks are not representative of the genuine good people of Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, as foreigner, they will be seeking you out so it would be easy to think that every local is bad when in fact it's a very small number of bad people.

India Rickshaw Scams Exposed & How to Get the Best Price (Save 50%+)

Watch tourist drivers attempt to lie, scam, and rip me off - so you can avoid them! I've put a red X over their mouths when they're lying.

Stay safe in India and bargain like a pro with the India Survival Guide (Quick-Start Safety Guide)

One more tip, use Uber or Ola apps in India. They're cheaper and safer. Cheaper because it's fixed price so no need to bargain and deal with these rickshaw/taxi drivers. You get AC in the hotter months too.

Avoid These Scammers At The Pyramids! ????????

90 Percent of the time I spent at the Pyramids was not spent enjoying the scenery, however It was spent chasing off the scammers and sales people.
It is a shame that the Egyptian government doesn't do something about it.
Apparently there are signs with set prices for camel rides (50 Egyptian Pounds for 30 minutes).
It leaves a bitter taste in the mouthes of tourists and really lowers the quality of the experience.
An Average hard working person in Egypt earns approximately 30-40 Egyptian Pounds for a full days work.
The 2 guys wanted about 700 Egyptian pounds for an hour camel ride which always ends up being about 30minutes. Thats a months salary in Egypt.
Unfortunately it is not only the Giza Necropolis that is like this.
Now Keep in mind it is not that I had a problem with paying 40 dollars for an hours camel ride, it is that their attitudes stank and their goal was to trick you and connive you.
Eventually I agreed to a rushed 5 minute ride for 150 egyptian pounds.

How to Eat at Indian Roadside Restaurants for Foreigners (Dhaba Tour)

When you visit India, you can eat at cheap roadside restaurants safely! I'll show you exactly how to order at a traditional Indian Dhaba (roadside restaurant) and how to judge whether the food is clean and safe to eat.

The Worst Tourist Trap in India (Hotel Gangaur)

Dhabas all along the motorways in India provide the tastiest and freshest Indian food. You get homemade food and good Indian hospitality for much cheaper than the Dhabas designed only for foreign tourists.

I always stop there to eat when I'm road trips. I usually order Aloo Paratha (stuffed bread with potato), Chole (chickpeas), and Masala Chai (Indian milk tea). That all costs about ₹280 or $4.

To find a Dhaba, just use Google Maps and check the reviews.

DO NOT GIVE HIM MONEY! ????????

Avoiding scammers, touts and hustlers is a big part of travelling in a touristic part of India. In Jaipur this is as true as anywhere in India.

After exploring the forts I tried to walk away from the tourist spot to visit the local side of Amer, hoping to see a more authentic side of the city away from scams and hassle. After making my way through annoying rickshaws, vendors trying to sell me cheap junk and a guy who tried to massively overcharge me on some snacks, I found myself in a local neighbourhood being guided by the local kids.

All was well until some big guy turned up and started demanding money from me. The kids had warned me about him so I was determined not give him any money. You can watch for yourself to see how that turned out.

Tuk Tuk Scammers Colombo Sri Lanka 2016

You should visit this site if you're going to Sri Lanka

I read about scammers in Colombo Sri Lanka who lure people that are alone and vulnerable into their Tuk Tuk with the intention to rob them. I read about one girl who was lured into a Tuk Tuk by a man who befriended her on the street and told her it was a special day and there was a big ceremony a short distance away. As he was talking a Tuk Tuk pulled up and the man told her it was a government Tuk Tuk with a meter and was very cheap, he showed her a coin and put it next to the sign on the number plate as proof it was a genuine government Tuk Tuk..The girl fell for the story and got into the Tuk Tuk and was taken to a remote part where she was forced to pay a fare of $100 dollars or be stranded. She paid out of fear. I was testing out my GoPro camera when I was approached by a man who told a similar story I left my camera running and pretended to show some interest. I knew they were scammers from the start. There are no government Tuk Tuks in Sri Lanka.

ITALY Doesn’t deserve tourists! Scams to AVOID!

#italyscams #italytourism #popularscamsinitaly
scams are very common in italy and here are few
1. The fake car crash scam
Not a very common occurence, but there are still occasional reports of incidents.

The situation usually involves people in older cars or on scooters, who would purposefully cause accidents, or pull over to the side of the road and claim a driver had hit them.

As with any traffic accident, you should call the authorities and follow proper procedure - scammers will usually change their mind when they know the police are coming.

2. The gypsy pizza scam
The Italian kids are in on the rogue behavior, too. Travelers tell tales about packs of cute gypsy girls who come up to you – while one holds a pizza box in front of you, you can't look below your waist while the other lifts your wallet.

They may also use newspapers or cardboard sheets instead of pizza boxes.

3. A scam on the sly
Some scamming is a little more understated. From time to time, travelers report they were overcharged or short-changed on the price of entry. Any museum or historical or cultural spot will usually have prices listed, so make sure to check.

The same can happen in regular stores when you go to purchase small items. Stores are required by law to issue receipts, so ask for one if it's not immediately offered to you.

4. The hotel upgrade scam
Not as common as it once was (because now everyone has access to AirBnB and online hotel booking), but If you encounter hotel staff at transport hubs who are offering good deals on accommodation, check the style and quality of the room fits their description before handing over any money.

5. Fashion heist
Others criminals will roam tourist spots, such as the Colosseum or Circus Maximus in Rome, and ask for directions.

Often targeting women, they'll start a conversation, then say they work for a fashion house and offer a pricey coat.

If you take the bait and try to take the coat from inside the car, the guy will ask for 200 euros for gas.

Thieves in Naples gather round the main train station and the Piazza Garibaldi, pretending to offer images of old Napoli or souvenirs.

These things are not free – if you take them, they'll harass you for money.

6. Tax police scam
This potential event can prove tricky, because while it's legit, many con-artists try to copy it.

The tax police, called Guardia di Finanza, may ask you to produce receipts after leaving a restaurant. They approach you more to make sure the establishment owner recorded the transaction for tax purposes.

These individuals are often in uniform, but they sometimes dress in plain clothes, which makes it hard to know if they are the real deal.

If you're worried, ask for the badge number, and if still leery, call the 113 emergency number and request a police officer in uniform.

7. Rest stop scam
Rest stops along the toll highways are another place where scammers operate. A group of men will set up a “game” that looks easy to win, and a crowd will gather - most of the crowd, of course, is in on the trick. Unsuspecting tourists see people winning easily, and quickly throw down their own 20 or 100 euro bills to play. Of course, they there is no chance they will win, with the scammers pocketing a nice kitty of euros.
