Radical Storage looked at over 820,000 TripAdvisor reviews for 100 of the world’s most visited cities.

The research found that Orlando in Florida was the most negatively reviewed destination of all.

Around one in five reviews for the destination were negative while almost five percent of reviews mentioned how “disappointed” visitors were.

Almost 10 percent of reviews said they had found the people in Orlando rude, while another seven percent said the experience was “terrible”.


Irene S.Levine, a clinical psychologist and producer of MoreTimeToTravel.com, said: “Often people plan to escape problems at home.

“They don’t realise that when we travel, we take our problems with us. Big problems are hard to shake off, even on the most wonderful trip. When someone leaves home with a cloud over their head, it doesn’t really lift and impairs one’s ability to experience and appreciate a destination.

“It might also be a result of overplanning, trying to see, or do too much, which leaves no place for the serendipitous travel experiences that bring joy.

“Lastly, it can take time to put a trip in perspective. While the virtues of the destination may be overshadowed by some of the hassles, over time, a person may come to appreciate their trip.”
