All travelers know the perfect pictures of cities offering remarkable sights and exciting activities. The fascinating photos however say nothing about the smell of the place. Tourism-Review.com reveals the smelliest cities around the world.
Rotorua is located near numerous hot springs and geysers. Therefore, while in the city especially for the first time, you will surely catch the smell of rotten eggs. As a result of this very strong odor, the city was even nicknamed the Sulphur city. What is actually interesting is that the locals are so used to it that they tell visitors that the smell will grow on them and even be missed.
Located along the Indian Ocean coast, the smell attributed to this city is a result of the finish material used to finish buildings and statues. Most of the buildings and statues in Mombasa have been finished using terracotta. Due to the tropical sun, terracotta is sunbaked and releases a characteristic smell when it rains.
The city is just a few miles away from the Nestle Rowntree factory. Therefore, scents of sweet chocolate infiltrate the city when wind blows towards the city from the factory direction. In fact the area's tourist board initiated a "Smell York" guide which is scented to tout the status of the area as the "home of chocolate" in Britain.
