The ugly actions of travelers

Indecent drawing and carving names on historical sites, taking nude pictures in sacred places, or destroying valuable artwork are bad actions you should avoid.


The following uncultured acts have appeared so much that visitors not only lose their image but also get imprisoned.

Engrave names on the Roman arena


In 2014, there were at least 5 incidents of sabotage of the Colosseum - one of the greatest structures in the world. A Russian tourist was fined up to £ 15,800 for carving a 25 cm long K on this work.

In early 2015, two young American guests engraved the first letter of their names on the walls of the arena to take selfies.

Graffiti on the ancient 3,500-year-old temple


Ding Jinhao, a Chinese tourist, had to confess to the international media for his unconscious behavior when painting graffiti on the 3,500-year-old sacred temple in Luxor, Egypt. The words "Ding Jinhao was here" made the online community search and find out he was living in Nanjing city, Jiangsu province. Ding's parents on his behalf apologized in the local press.

Broke the ear of a stone statue on Easter Island


Marko Kulju, a Finnish tourist, broke an ear of a statue on the famous Easter Island. Polynesian stone statues are thought to be around 1,000 years old. Kulju was arrested and fined 8.6 million Chilean pesos (about US $ 18,715).

Use black ink to write on Rothko's work


In 2012, Wlodzimierz Umaniec scribbled a line on the painting "Black on Maroon" by Mark Rothko (a famous Latvian painter) on display in the Tate Modern Museum in London, England. This picture costs tens of millions of pounds. Surprisingly, this vandalism also increased the value of the work, and Wlodzimierz was sentenced to 2 years in prison.

Go to the toilet and throw rubbish in Stonehenge


Volunteers and staff at Stonehenge are sad to see graffiti, gum residue or garbage around huge rocks after the summer solstice and solstice days. One employee described the "horrible stink" and "vomit, urine or feces" as what tens of thousands of unconscious people leave around historic rocks.

Nudity and 'selfie' at Angkor Wat


In early 2015 alone, two scandals occurred at Angkor Wat, the famous heritage complex of Cambodia. On January 31, three French tourists were sentenced to 6 months in prison but were given a suspended sentence for their "selfie" nude action. Shortly thereafter, on February 8, Siem Reap court sanctioned two American female guests for the same crime. The two girls were banned from returning to Cambodia for the next four years and fined $ 250 each.
