Send us your funniest holiday photos and you could win a night’s stay in a boutique hotel in Paris
Some destinations will try all manner of gimmicks to lure tourists while others view the never-ending footfall as a scourge. We start our journey with Cambridge, the latest place expressing the wish to exert some form of tourist pest control. With a population of 120,000, the historic East Anglian city is starting to lose patience with the four million-odd visitors who surge in, look at the sights, punt down the river and leave without a backward glance. The former mayor has recommended that a new charge be levied on sights and that 'punting louts' be reprimanded. The city council agrees it needs to protect certain cultural gems, and may possibly create 'no-go' areas for tourists. Call it our inner rebellious teenager, but we like it when a place plays hard to get - read on for 10 others.
