Tips / Safety

We’ve all gone to great lengths to capture the perfect selfie on our travels, but going to a certain length for that photo might be a dangerous pursuit at some of the world’s more popular attractions. Take heed and snap with caution at these sites, designated by TopRatedCasinos.co.uk as the world’s most dangerous selfie hot spots.

 

TopRatedCasinos.co.uk analyzed news articles from the last two decades that reported incidents, from minor to death, at some of the biggest tourism hot spots, to compile the list. The website also gathered Instagram hashtags for each location to reveal which is the most at-risk.

 

Yosemite National Park takes the No. 1 spot, with 4,869,100 posts on Instagram, and 5 million annual visitors. In second place is the Grand Canyon, at 4,267,800 Instagram posts. Snowdon, Wales, appears at No. 3, followed by Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. In 2016, mountain rescuers there pleaded with tourists to stop taking “stupid and dangerous selfies” after completing 1,200 rescue operations. No. 5 is Ireland’s Cliff of Moher.

 

The rest of the top 20 is as follows:

  1. Loch Lomond
  2. Brecon Beacons
  3. New Smyrna
  4. Cabo da Roc
  5. Pamplona
  6. Trolltunga
  7. Mount Everest
  8. Lulworth Cove
  9. Mount Lilauea
  10. Clifton Suspension Bridge
  11. Mount Merapi
  12. Yungas Road
  13. Huashan National Park
  14. Diamond Bay Reserve
  15. Northcliff Hill

Under $100: Old City, Philadelphia

Wake up feeling like a local at Lokal Hotel, located in the heart of Old City, Philadelphia, on 3rd Street. Take in the sounds of the busy, yet still fairly quiet street below and head next door to Café Ole for coffee and breakfast. This Moroccan café has arguably the best coffee in the area with an abundance of styles and rich, bold flavors. Best known for the homemade shakshuka dishes for two at $16, Café Ole also offers omelets, sandwiches, bagels and French toast.

Jackrabbit Filly Review

On a recent trip to Charleston, my group and I decided to have dinner at Jackrabbit Filly. The restaurant serves new Chinese-American cuisine with a southern flair. We booked reservations as the popular spot fills up fast. Jackrabbit Filly opened in 2019 and has since appeared on numerous regional and national best-of lists.
