著名旅遊指南網站Tripadvisor最近舉行民調,選出全球最髒旅遊景點。

其中第二名是在美國西雅圖「派克市場」的一個劇院,牆身被觀眾
貼滿約100 萬塊已嚼完的香口膠,色彩繽紛。口香糖牆雖然衛生堪慮
,但它已成為西雅圖地標之一,也是當地藝術家展現另類創意的媒介。

第一位:愛爾蘭布拉尼之石(The Blarney Stone)

15世紀布拉尼古堡內的一塊巨石,又稱「巧言石」,相傳親吻該石後
會令人變得口齒伶俐,吸引世界各地遊客前來獻吻,但其實每次親吻
等於吻在人家的口水之上。

第二位:西雅圖口香糖牆(Seattle Gum Wall)

美國西雅圖劇院外一幅長15公尺、高4.5公尺的外牆,自1933年起便被
排隊等入場等到悶的人,把嚼過的口香糖黏到牆上,久而久之形成五
顏六色的口香糖牆。當局曾經清理過兩次,但總是故態復萌,最後在
1999年放棄,任由口香糖累積。有人感到惡心,有人視為塗鴉藝術。

第三位:王爾德之墓(Oscar Wilde's Tomb)
童話故事「快樂王子」的作者、愛爾蘭大文豪王爾德於1900年在法國
去世後,葬於巴黎的拉雪茲公墓。每年有不少遊客到墓前憑弔,女粉
絲更會親吻墓碑表達傾慕之情,以致整塊墓碑留下無數唇印。

第四位:威尼斯聖馬可廣場(St. Mark's Place)
聖馬可廣場是遊客必到景點,觀看成千上萬鴿子飛翔的壯麗景觀,

但鴿子在地上、雕像和遊客身上留下糞便,成為散播病菌的源頭。

第五位:加州中國劇院(Grauman's Chinese Theatre)

美國加州好萊塢地標中國劇院,設計甚具中國風格,門前有超過200
位明星留下的手印或腳印,每日吸引不少影迷在這條星光大道上合照,

這些手印或腳印被無數人摸過,是細菌孳生的溫床。

第六位:印度老鼠神廟(Karni Mata Rat Temple)

第七位:南韓猴子谷(Friendly Monkey Valley)

第八位:英國格拉斯頓伯里音樂節(廁所衛生差)(Glastonbury Festival)

第九位:任何地方的兒童球池(Any Children's Ball Pool)

第十位:美國鄉村、藍草、藍調酒吧舊址的廁所(CBGB's toilets)

Blarney Stone Tops 'Germiest Attractions'
Travel Site Lists Top 5 Germ-Laden World Destinations

If you're on your way to kiss the Blarney Stone in Ireland,

you best not think of all the others who have laid their lips

upon that stone before you.

The stone, which attracts 400,000 kissers each year,

tops TripAdvisor's list of the "top 5 germiest world attractions."

The list, which was determined by TripAdvisor editors and travelers,

couldn't come at a better time, as more and more travelers

say they are concerned about germs.

According to a recent tripadvisor.com poll of more than 4,600 travelers,

34 percent of travelers reported being more "germaphobic"

by washing and disinfecting their hands more frequently

when traveling since the swine flu outbreak.(自從豬流感爆發)

Additionally, TripAdvisor forums indicate that travelers

have got germs on the brain, with use of the words "germs,"

"sanitizer," and "disease" up 97 percent, 182 percent, and 112 percent,

respectively, between March and May of 2009 compared to the same period in 2008.

As for the other attractions that round out the list:

No. 2: Seattle's Wall of Gum, where those waiting

to get into the Market Theatre in Post Alley

have left their chewed gum since the 1990s.

No. 3: Oscar Wilde's Tomb in Paris
, where it's tradition for visitors

to leave lipstick prints by kissing the tombstone.

No. 4: St. Mark's Square in Venice, Italy, which sometimes seems

to have more dirty pigeons than human visitors.

No. 5: The celebrity handprints and footprints outside Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
