Worst place you ever been?Page 2 of 17    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)
Kuta. Best to get a bus to Ubud as soon as you arrive in Bali.

Manila. Hard to believe that this was once considered the pearl of the orient, before the Japanese invasion.

New Jalpaiguri in India. This is where you catch the little train up the mountain to Darjeeling. Not a place to say unless the train isn't running.

Ipswich (in Queensland, Australia - not the one in Suffolk England, which has one or two saving graces).

I have to agree with chick....Gary Indiana is like a festering sore. There are so many buildings w/o windows, run down, its dirty and stinky. Couldnt pay me to live there.

#1 Turkey
and #2 Egypt.

Turkey have very bad gray sand with stones. They cheated me with local trips
(on the way to Pummakale we visitet about 8 local stores..
because they payed "bakshis" to organizer!... i payed for the trip, but not for the stores)
prices are not fair.

Egypt have a lot of naughty and annoying arabs
(Pyramids and luxor are great, don't get me wrong!)
prices are cheap.

Hi
I loved Djibouti, no rules, of course I wasn't a local. I spent 2 months there doing famine relief into Ethiopia back in 92 on Hercs. Stayed downtown at the Menalik,around the cormer from the souk. got drunk with the legion guys
Just thought I would say hello to someone else who had been to the a*** of the world.

Too big, crowded and expensive.

New question to everyone: What is the nicest place you have been?

I have yet to go somewhere in the Middle East that I haven't despised.

The worst place I've ever been is Cairo. Hot, dirty, polluted. Trash rolling around the pyramids. Trash, empty Coke bottles and cigg. butts inside the tombs in the pyramids. Bribes all around. Oppressive police. Insane drivers. Taxi cabs where the seatbelts had been removed (which, unlike merely not wearing them, is a deliberate act saying: I care not for my life, nor your's)

I saw a man get shot and killed on the street in downtown Cairo about thirty feet from were I was walking. A drive-by shooting. The poor guy rolled around on the ground for a while, spurting bright-red arterial blood, while passer-bys studiously ignored him. The next day I walked past the same spot and the blood hadn't even been washed off the walls.

Eilat in Israel on the Red Sea - I was stuck there for two days waiting for the Egyptian consulate to open. Eilat is a resort town so everything was expensive; bland and incrediblely tacky with no escape.

So, I went with my sis and brother-in-law to this small, rural town in Saskatchewan to buy a boat. At first it seemed like any other quiet rural community. I'm not going to name the place, but it's beyond a 200 km radius of where I live (just in case any locals read this and try to figure it out!)

Anyway, as soon as we stepped out of the truck, we all noticed a very eerie sense about the place. It was more than just quiet, the people we did see looked at us more out of suspision than out of curiosity of strangers in town. It was just a very uneasy feeling. It was almost like something really terrible had just happened there and we just walked into the middle of it...very Twilight Zone!

They bought their boat and we decided to go to the local restaurant before heading back on the road. The same thing happened at the restaurant. All eyes were on us with suspicion. The waitress looked like she was going to jump out of her shoes when she handed us our menus.

My brother-in-law, a tough as nails pipeliner, had had enough by this point. Even he had picked up on the negative vibes. "Let's eat and get the hell out of here!" We ate, paid and left!

I never did find out if something did happen there, but none of us have ever gone back there.

Salt Lake City, Utah. Even worse when you live there. The Mormons have a hold on everything that matters, you can't buy a decent drink anywhere, the crime rate is as high as it is in L.A., many of the people are jerks, and they still pay $5.00 an hour as a means for minimum wage for people trying to make a living.

Take it from a guy who spent two-thirds of his life living in that general area!

Somalia, I hate Somalia! I have never used so much ammunition in one trip or been shot at so much for no bloody apparent reason, closely followed by Kabul a place I can find no redeeming feature of, however the Hindu Kush is possible one of the most enchanting and magical places on the planet. Beirut when its being bombed is no fun, but lovely when it isnt, without a doubt the best food in the world and some of the loveliest people. Oh and Lebanon Ohio, I once spent 3 nights there, they all have big name badges, I think so that they can remember.

i don't like to use the word "worst" but i will admit i really struggled in India. Not all the places i visited in india (I really enjoyed Jaipur and Pushkar) but there were a few occassions where I thought to myself that I just coudln't take it anymore, which was shocking to me because i've travelled all over the world and never felt like that. however, i've had friends go who love it and can't wait to go back.
