Tourist photographs a fascinating pigeon.

A tourist stopped in his tracks to whip out his cell phone. He was lucky to have discovered a quite fascinating pigeon. Fortunately, the bird didn’t seem to mind the gaping man. Excitedly, the tourist took several snaps, nodded with satisfaction, thrust the phone into his pocket, and hurried on. He had to catch a flight home.

Tourists attacked by leaping killer whale.

A killer whale was photographed the very moment it leapt from the sparkling blue bay, attacking and devouring eight tourists who were out for a leisurely stroll. This photo was taken one second before the innocent tourists succumbed to their fishy fate.

The crumpled clothes of earlier victims are visible nearby on the grass. Avoid this waterfront park at all costs.

Doomed tourists enter a black door to hell.

I’ve seen every kind of tourist trap. This one beats them all.

Lured by the promise of cheap souvenirs, throngs of happy tourists gladly press their way through this ominous black door.

Rumor has it that anywhere from 1000 to 5000 naive tourists have passed through this door.  On the other side, hell awaits.

If you see this cheerful sign, stay clear.

Hong Kong’s palm beach…teepees?

In the event you’re ever in Hong Kong, and you want to stay in a Native American teepee, fortunately there’s an establishment that can meet your needs. Book your stay in a wigwam on Palm Beach!

I’m not sure whether you’ll find any bison roaming about the beach, or any Native Americans for that matter, but who wouldn’t want to travel to Hong Kong just to stay in a tent? It beats packing your own teepee and taking it through airport security. I wouldn’t recommend bringing a tomahawk, either.

I’m beyond excited. I’m making my travel plans now. I wonder if those teepees are furnished with vibrating beds. I’m definitely sending my bow and arrows Fedex. Because Hong Kong is an action-packed metropolis. Those Jackie Chan movies have really inspired me. Wasn’t he in that Asian cowboys and Indians flick?

Weird tourism has never been more…weird.

Aussie billionaire to clone dinosaurs.

They're more approachable this way.

Watching humans being devoured by T. Rex in Jurassic Park wasn’t exciting enough? Fear not! Soon (perhaps) you’ll be able to visit a real dinosaur adventure resort!

Yes, a clever Australian billionaire has announced his intentions to clone some dinosaurs and set them free down under for the amusement of the meaty and moneyed masses. Disneyland will finally have some real competition once the velociraptors and other cuties are roaming about on exhibit. Hopefully there is a backup generator for the electrical fences, and the computer software running the park isn’t sabotaged. And hopefully they pay their software programmers well. When you’ve got billions of dollars, you’d think that would be possible.

Okay, I gotta say it… A fun amusement park filled with living dinosaurs would be the ultimate tourist trap!
