Tangier, never hated anywhere except there.
I also think so.The Hitch said:I dont think Cuidad de Mexico is that bad. The big cities like Mexico, Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro (though thiose who have seen cuidade de deus may disagree) even with high crime rates are ok because even with the bad areas they have the business districts as well, and the tourism angle.
I would say that in that country Juarez, Tj and any city in Siniloa are worse. Of course in all these cases their danger is a recent development due to Mexican gangs realising their proximity to the US gives them more power with the narco thing than South Americans. 20 years ago Cali and Medellin would have been worse.
The worst city in the world is obviously Mogadishu. Though maybe Pyonyang.
But staying out of war zones or dictatorships i would say ,
Every city in Finland looks like that. Finland maybe the best country in the world but seriously the climate is very bad for 9 months of the year and if you don't like XC skiing there's nothing to see here. I'll get as far as I can from Finland as soon as I can.L'arriviste said:Joensuu, Finland - Beautiful surrounding area but the city was kind of scary.
It wasnt just that, I didnt think there was anywhere particularly nice to just hang out in Dublin. For example, go to almost any major city in Belgium and there is usaully a nice Main square surrounded by nice buildings with restaurants and cafes and everyone just sitting around having a beer or a coffee or whatever, a lovely atmospehere. There is no such place in Dublin, the best time of year to be in Dublin is actually Christmas.nfmcgrath said:Pmcg - Sorry you didn't like Dublin (The big Smoke, The dirty auld town ), I'm from there and I know that it is an either love it or hate it kind of place. But I think you'll find that its the social life that you have in the cities that you mention you lived in either make or break the experience there. For myself I didn't really think that much of Sydney Australia, but then I didn't really know anyone there while I was there. Melbourne I always thought was a nicer city.
