Over Crowded Tourists on Crucial Objects

Thursday, July 25, 2019
Daffodil Hill, California

Recently, you might know from many medias (mainstream and social) that Daffodil hill in California was closed indefinitely.

The reason? Due to Over Crowded Tourists who caused:
- destroyed flowers field to make photograph (selfie)
- parking damages
- uncontrolled traffics in the nearby areas
- environmental deteriorates

Daffodil hill was not alone. The trend seem worldwide, the examples of over crowded tourist sites are coming from different countries:

- Machu Picchu, Peru
- Mount Everest, Nepal
- Venice, Italy
- Santorini, Greece
- Barcelona, Spain

Yellow Daffodil

The Daffodil hill is known for daffodil flowers, together with horses, peacocks and chickens attracted many people to visit.

The area used to mining areas in a century ago. Visitor could observe very old barns, mining equipment, original wagon wheel and antique farming tools.

These combinations of nature and history makes anyone, young and old to love and enjoy the Daffodil hill.

Initially, daffodil was planted by first owners to remember Holland as their country origin. The next owners, then plant to thousands of flowers.

If we come on the peak of blooming, we would be witness of blooming for 300,000 bulbs.

The owners have planted about 16 thousand bulb per year continually. These thousands new bulbs to replace the old or died ones.

Unfortunately this beautiful farming had been victimized of over crowded tourists.

Do you have over tourists in your areas? If so, what should be done?

  2. Vermont, where I live, is highly dependent on the tourism industry, more outdoor adventuring - birding, skiing, fishing, leaf-peeping, etc. - than sightseeing per se. Fortunately, I don't think we've suffered too much from overcrowding yet but that could change.

  7. Beautiful hills of flowers but can also see why it requires protection. Sometime I feel that Savannah is “Over-touristed” but realize the economic benefit of the tourist. I have lived much of my adult life in tourist destinations, so I have come to understand and to be a little tolerate. That said, some places are fragile and need protection. I have hiked down trails where the National Park Service only allows 10 permits a day and I’m glad, even though it is a pain to get a permit (I’m thinking of some of the remote trails into the Grand Canyon and other canyons in Southern UT and Northern AZ.

    1. We always face with two choices: economic or preserve our heritages.... If we know how to handle crowd and vandalism, we would get economic advantages as well...

  10. I think this trend is so sad. It seems that many people today do not take responsibility for their actions, thus places are starting to close. Where ever I go I see lots of garbage left behind. Until people start to be respect and responsible for their actions things won't change.

  15. It sounds like a beautiful place, but it's sad it was damaged and sad that it closed. I don't know what the answer to the problem is. Everyone has a right to travel, it can't just be a right for the elite.

  19. Always difficult - balancing the increasing interest in a site resulting in more tourists, plus the economic benefit to an area, alongside the damage caused. I love you photos of the daffs.
