Tourist trap is a term coined by the media in the US to describe a scam in which a tourist is charged for a day or so spent with an overseas tourist or a group of tourists.
In reality, however, this is a scam designed to make the tourist feel more financially secure by selling them a package of a day’s accommodation and a souvenir, which are all included in the package.
It’s a scam, but one that doesn’t require much planning or knowledge of the customs laws.
If you have already booked a day in a foreign country and want to spend a day there, it’s possible to avoid the tourist tax by agreeing to be a guest.
However, the tourist trap doesn’t have to be one of the most expensive tours in the world.
There are many other options for a single day.
For example, there’s a day of camping in Thailand.
A day in Australia can cost up to $25AUD (approximately £16) and a day on a yacht can run up to a few hundred dollars (around £70).
The main thing to remember when booking a tourist trap tour is that it’s all about the money.
