Gone are the days when you actually travelled to see a new place or have a new experience. Now all you want are aesthetic places with pretty backgrounds so that you can get amazing DPs for your Facebook profile.
Don’t even try denying, for we’re all guilty of this. But what if we said that there were places around the world where selfies were banned? Would you still go?
A lot of tourist hot spots have banned selfies, for various reasons which include security. Check these out:
1. Disneyland, USA
