Subject: Worst Travel Advice?
Dear Ziners,

I was reading The Cheapskate's Guide to Paris last night and thought that some of the advice given was questionable. Which in turn led me to ponder the idea of the worst travel advice I have been given.

I was wondering what turned out to be the worst travel advice you have received? Did it come from a book? an article? a friend, colleague or family member? How did it all turn out?

Off the top of my head, I am counting a Rick Steves' restaurant recommendation in Paris as the worst but I'll probably come up with more. ;-)
