The world is full of places that any person caught with the travel bug would like to visit. From the ancient temples of China to the Pyramids of Giza to the beautiful beaches in Asia and the Caribbean, there are just so many places to fly to. While some tourists know the importance of historic structures and are respectful of their surroundings while abroad, there are some who aren't as nice.
Below are the worst tourists in the travel industry's most recent history.
Stone-faced British Guardsmen are known for not reacting to anything. These trained soldiers, aside from having served in the British military, can keep their cool even in front of giggling tourists. But one guardsman lost his cool as a Columbian tourist started mimicking him. It did not occur to the Columbian that Guardsmen deserve respect.

The British are very polite most of the time but three tourists from the UK broke into Sea World Australia and decided to steal a penguin. They stole Dirk, a fairy penguin. According to sources, they also swam with dolphins. Their escapades were posted on Facebook.
What happened to Dirk? He was found in a beach nearby and was returned to Sea World the next day.

Ding Jinhao and his parents went to Egypt to see temples and hieroglyphs including a 3,000-year-old ancient carving. The carving that survived 3,000 years of the elements, earthquakes, and wars took a bit of damage courtesy of Ding Jinhao's idea of scratching his name on it. Written in Chinese, Ding Jinhao etched "Ding Jinhao was here."
