 Ταξλδια: Τα μερη που δεν μπορελτε &nu ;α επισκεφτεΙτε το 2023 και γιατΙ

Travellers from all over the world are expected to get their revenge for the two years of confinement in 2023, as they can now take their dream vacations in any corner of the world they choose, without restrictions.

However, despite the fact that the restrictions from Covid-19 are now a thing of the past, this does not mean that all attractions were left unscathed by the pandemic.

Some have taken advantage of the tourism lull to remodel or upgrade their infrastructure, but some have closed for good.

CNN found the world's tourist attractions you should cross off your bucket list, as they are either no longer operating, or will remain closed for at least another year.

See what these are:

Train Street, Hanoi – Vietnam

Ταξiδια: Τα μeρη π ;ου δεν μπορεΙτε να επισκεφτεΙτ&epsilon ; το 2023 και γιατи

This road is one of the most photographed on Instagram.

The old quarter street in Vietnam's capital became famous for trains coming and going along the tracks just inches away from houses and shops.

However, despite the vintage setting, lines are still heavily used.

This combined with over-tourism in the area poses security issues for visitors. In fact, trains have been forced many times to follow different routes in order to avoid traffic.

Plan B: Prefer exploring at Nhà Thờ Lớn H Nội (St. Joseph's Cathedral). No trains will pass, but there will be many motorbikes.

The Underground Museum in Los Angeles

The “Underground Museum” in Los Angeles is a creation of artists Noah and Karon Davis and promotes works by black artists.

The museum continued to operate after Noah's death in 2015, but despite the support of celebrities such as Beyoncé and John Legend, it eventually closed its doors in 2022.

It is unclear what exactly happened or if the museum will reopen in another location.

Plan B: The California African American Museum in Exposition Park also displays works by black artists.

The Dublin Writers Museum, Ireland

Some of the most important writers of English-language literature came from Ireland and in order to to preserve their legacy, the Dublin Writers' Museum was created.

Like so many tourist attractions around the world, the museum closed in March 2020.

At the time it was reported that the museum would be closed temporarily, but it turned out to be its… final end.

In August 2022 it was announced that the museum is closing for good as it “no longer meets the expectations of the modern museum visitor in terms of accessibility, presentation and interpretation”.

Plan B: Goodbye, for the Museum Dublin writers, you can visit the Irish Literature Museum.

It was once the largest floating restaurant in the world. It no longer exists.

The restaurant, which appeared in dozens of films and TV shows and was visited by dignitaries such as Queen Elizabeth, became less popular over time with both locals and foreigners. tourists.

The cost of maintaining the ornate three-story vessel has been high and Hong Kong tourism has taken a dive amid strict Covid bans and restrictions.

The 9/11 Tribute Museum, New York
