Are these sentences grammatical and natural?

▪Hardly any people are there who don't like traveling.

▪Hardly any people don't like traveling.

NB: I inverted this sentence: There are hardly any people who don't like traveling.

Hi, Toaha—Both sentences are grammatical and natural; however, they do not mean the same thing. Although "Hardly any people don't like traveling" can be paraphrased as "There are hardly any people who don't like traveling," your notion that the latter can be inverted to "Hardly any people are there who don't like traveling" is incorrect. In that sentence, "there" specifies a place. It may be compared to "Hardly any people are at the party who don't like to travel."
