Not counting events (sports, concerts, etc.) or entry queues, What is the most over-crowded place you have ever battled tourists?

For me, I'd say the Smithsonian. I thought I'd spend a couple hours there, since I was nearby. It was school bus loads of kids packing the main concourse, I couldn't even turn around.

Luckily, I'm old enough that I saw things before the crowds. Mona Lisa alll by myself in an empty room.

"The Minnesota Gathering" / (State Fair)

DC fireworks on the Mall,.

= An Average day on Tokyo transit (or many other large cities)

Many people have to deal with crowds their entire life.

Bumbershoot and Bite of Seattle in the Seattle Center. Several million people per day can come to visit during these events. It's wall to wall people.

Sistine Capel.
A temple we visited while on a river cruise in China, forget the name.
Markets in Kuala Lumpur at Chinese New Year when I thought my kids would get swept away.

Don’t think I could stand to be anywhere that crowded any more. One thing we seem to cherish from the Covid restrictions here is the social distancing. Hardly a mask to be seen in the city in Sydney yesterday, restaurants full and life looked normal. Except for the queues for the buses, Apple store and anywhere else. Still spaced right out.

The Vatican Museums. I don’t remember the artwork. I do remember literal wall-to-wall people and trying to squeeze through the masses to keep up with our guide, who could often only be identified by the purple scarf she had tied to a pole and raised up in the air.
