Who doesn't love the story of a good hoax? There's something epic about them, especially those perpetrated on such a large scale that they become tourist attractions in their own right.
Here are a series of offbeat travel destinations that have 'hoax' written all over them. Some are definitely forgeries, others most probably. But the jury remains out on one or two, if only locally for the benefit of tourism likely trumps authenticity.
