What are the most crowded places in the world? What comes to mind when you hear the word “crowded”? Times Square on New Year’s Eve? Maybe your favorite mall on Black Friday? Let’s see which places around the world look like the worst nightmare.

For example, one of the 7 wonders of the world, Machu Picchu is believed to be the legendary “lost city of the Incas.” It's the most visited destination in Peru and one of the most popular travel goals for globetrotters worldwide. The high season here starts in May and ends in October, bringing 5,000 visitors a day and a total of one million people a year.

- Sichuan province has its own “dead sea” that serves as an artificial reservoir and popular resort. During hot summer days, it turns into an overcrowded water park, and its indoor pool is considered to be the biggest in China and most crowded in the world.
- The Taj Mahal is the iconic marble mausoleum and symbol of eternal love attracts 7–8 million people a year. There can be 70,000 tourists there on a busy day!
- One of the 7 wonders of the world, Machu Picchu is believed to be the legendary “lost city of the Incas.” It's the most visited destination in Peru and one of the most popular travel goals for globetrotters worldwide.
- The Great Wall of China is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world with around 10 million visitors each year. In 2013, there were even more visitors: 10,720,000 people!
- Piazza del Campo is located in Siena, and it’s one of the most splendid medieval squares in the world. Twice a year, the square changes its appearance: it turns into a race track for the Palio di Siena horse race.
- All subways are terrible during rush hour, but the subway in Tokyo is something special! Shinjuku Station is even listed in the Guinness World Records as the busiest transport hub in the world.
- The pedestal of the statue of Christ the Redeemer is also quite special as it hosts a small chapel in which people can get married.
- Chichen Itza was a large city built by the Mayan people. The Pyramid of Kukulcan was a place where the Mayans used to practice ritual sacrifices.
- Santa Cruz del Islote is an artificial island with a length of 656 ft and a width of 394 ft. You can get there by ferry from the port of Tolu.
- The largest mall in the USA attracts around 40 million people per year, and one-third of them are tourists. 520 stores, a Nickelodeon Universe amusement park, a seaquarium, and many other interesting things attract more people than Disneyland and the Grand Canyon.
- Mong Kok is an area in Hong Kong with an extremely high population density of 340,000 per square mile. Mong Kok was described as the busiest district in the world by the Guinness World Records.
- Mumbai is a huge city with people who are used to leading a hectic lifestyle. The city is always crowded with citizens, especially the Borivali Railway Station.
- Turkish people sure did back in 1461 when the Grand Bazaar opened. The main area of it alone has 64 streets (that’s more than my hometown does!). Somewhere between 250,000 and 400,000 people come here every day, adding up to a total of 15 million visitors per year.
