Jaisalmer Fort, India

Why it's controversial: Vast portions of Jaisalmer Fort have, for decades, been in danger of collapsing thanks to water leakage from its antique drainage system, a problem exacerbated by an increasing number of tourist lodgings within the fort's sandstone walls. British-based conservation group Jaisalmer in Jeopardy says major infrastructure works are currently underway, but in the meantime, it's probably best to find a bed elsewhere.

Instead go to: The town of Jaisalmer, where there are plenty of equally enjoyable accommodation options within a quick walk of this sprawling hilltop citadel.
