    Raise your hand if you’ve ever fallen for clickbait. That’s OK; you don’t have to admit it. We’ve all clicked through on a headline that’s so outrageous, so egregious, that you know it can’t be true. There’s a fair amount of guilt that goes along with, but you then have to see the rest of the article anyway. The good news is, when it comes to travel, you’ll never have to be tricked into visiting—or even just looking at—some of our favorite destinations. But since we’re living in a digital age, let's give your social media skills a whirl. How well can you find the nugget of truth and see through the clickbait titles for these travel hot spots?

    The United States
    The United States
    Sure, the United States fight like one big family, but they can’t help but come together over the stately forests, the sweeping coastlines, and all those purple mountains majesties.

    Antarctica
    Maybe it’s the pole-side location, maybe it’s all the penguins, but Antarctica really does have a knack for chilling out.

    The Galápagos Islands
    The Galápagos Islands
    Those finches, lizards, and sea lions that Charles Darwin made famous? They still exist in all their variations. But let’s be honest; even if you’re not in the least bit scientific, you can’t help but be impressed by the incredible biodiversity of the Galápagos Islands.

    Kenya
    Kenya
    Sure, it’s a little alarmist, but it’s true! No one’s denying that ethical safaris are a must in Kenya, but there’s so much more to explore, from the country’s pristine and less-traveled coast to the peaks of Mount Kenya.

    Tokyo
    Tokyo
    It makes sense that the largest urban population on Earth has one of the most efficient public transportation systems. But that’s not why we love Tokyo. We keep going back for the incredible cuisine, the seamless blend of ancient and modern, and of course, the city’s eccentric and iconic style.

    Australia
    Australia
    It would be just like true clickbait to draw you in with a negative, but everyone knows that Australia has left its bad boy reputation way in the past. Now one of the most popular vacation destinations, Australia is known for its cultural hubs, scenic beaches, and irresistible laid-back vibe.

    Dubai
    Dubai
    Yes, Dubai does have a lot of incredibly glitzy skyscrapers. But we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: The heart of this city lies in the markets, neighborhoods, and in everyday life.
