It does not look like that in real life. Add a thousand or so Asian tourists armed with selfie sticks clogging the walkway and you've got it about right

As above, true of any tourist destination in the world. You should see Stratford upon Avon in the height of summer, a total PITA and that was in the 80’s when I lived near there.

Climbing up the mountain you’ll see less people and even more beautiful spots, just need to wade through the mass of annoying Geisha clothed selfie tourists first.
