Worst place I've ever travelled.....Well I'd have to say Greensville, NC or Roanoke Rapids, NC.....went down there when my mum and I were debating on moving to Greensboro, Greensville, or Roanoke Rapids. We moved to Greensboro to say the least....


Where I lived in Greensboro, aside from the fact that I got stabbed I would love to move back there. Greensboro is a great city lots to do and lots to take in, one of the many civil rights museums is there.

I agree Port Moresby is the most dangerous place I have ever been.

I have been in 55 countries and Papua New Guinea is by far the most dangerous place. The hotel grounds was surrounded by razor wire and armed guards at every entrance. Local escorts had to be with you every moment to secure your safety. When hiking the Kokoda Trail, all personal items had to be in your tent at night or they would be stolen. The guards were necessary at night to assure our safety. The 10 days hike was amazing but I would never return to the country.

The most disappointing for me was the Grand Canyon. It was full of fog and I couldn't see a thing.

Eritrea...incredibly poor, beggars everywhere. Everyone looked malnourished. Very depressing place. Mombassa Kenya places a close second for it's violence and crime.

Out of 23 countries, I'd have to say my top 2 are: Martha's Vineyard-snootiest people I ever met and Reno, Nevada-filthy for a 1st world city, boring and depressing.

Melbourne a ''Worst place''??

Ballaratt, Phillip Island, Great Ocean Road...
Excellent transport infratructure, great choice of food from most cultures, great club scene - Aussies by their nature are welcoming people.

What did you do ? Stay one night in a back packers ??

Melbourne's a great place and Victoria has a hell of a lot of to see - Soverign Hill the site of the gold miners rebellion (The Eureka Stockade)

That's terrible! Because it's one of my favorite places in the world and the most awe-inspiring by far.

Most Disapointing? The Great Salt Lake- Smelled like low tide on steroids and while walking along the shore we heard a crunching sound and looked down to see that we were walking on seagull carcases.

well for everyone who said niagara falls n.y you are absolutely right !! n.y.s and the city of niagara falls without a doubt " dropped the ball " on this one. to have such a marvel as niagara falls right in your backyard and do absolutely NOTHING with it as far as attractions, marketing, etc is beyond me. the indians put up a very nice casino resort but outside of that the canadian side picked up the fumble and ran it in for a touchdown.

Detroit-Windsor, nothing really to see except for the Ford museum and they charge you $30 just to visit the damn place. There are only liquor stores and prostitutes everywhere. Road condition was horrible too, nothing really to see.

Fenghuang City, China. Greatly exaggerated place with not much scenery, food was crappy, street vendors everywhere hawking services and goods. The water was smelly due to people doing laundry, etc.

Toronto - Other than the Lake Ontario and the CN tower, the city is just one big urban sprawl spread out miles and miles.

Halifax - Smelly harbor, small city with not much of anything there. No need to visit a second time cause there is nothing to see there.

Algonquin Park - nothing really to see, most of the park is like abandoned and really nothing to see.

Not the worst but still bad,boring awful..is a trip to Las Vegas.So much
smoking,drinking,...ppl handingout um..xesual..papers to clubs or stuff.
and gambling abound an such headaches from the lights an its tacky buildings an..blah not a very good family trip but it was still ok. the natural side was good..an there were cute lil stores M&M Store for example.but idk..it wasnt exactly a bad trip but it wasnt very swell either
its a toss up.
but its natural beauty again is amazing.go farther from its city an you can see the desert,experience the dark night truly:pitch black an see the milkyway an others.That was worth the trip to get to L.V.though too the city had its charms here an there so even its bright artificial lights had something alittle nice to it.

I keep seeing Tijuana mentioned, I have been there a few times. Once with a Mexican buddy who really knew his way around, I don't remember it smelling bad, but it wasn't the summer either. Met really nice people and had a great dinner but again I was with someone who knew their way around. Mostly I have driven through TJ to get to Ensenada for Baja races. Mexico can be really great or a nightmare depending on perspective. The worst part of TJ is driving back across the border to the US - it takes forever, we detour to Mexicali it is quicker.

Once in Ensenada to film the Baja 1000, one of our co-workers had all of his belongings stolen from his pick-up bed within 5 minutes of stepping away to stretch his legs. Right in the hotel parking structure, with people 100 ft away. That was my first experience of Baja.

About 75 miles south of Ensenada, while waiting to film our race truck at a pit stop, my buddy and I positioned his 4wd SUV on a small hill overlooking the spot were the pit crews were located. We had camp chairs and a cooler and made ourselves comfortable while watching the crews below prepare for the racers; who were many hours away from checking-in. Early in our stay at camp, a farmer drove up and joined us. He told us (I think) that we were next to the fields that he worked. He shared Tequila that he had, and we gave him some of our cold cuts and bread, and we had a conversation. He was the rough weather beaten guy you imagine making his living from the dirt in such a place. We don't speak much Spanish, and he little English, but we shared food and drink and we were friends for an afternoon. When night came we saw rowdy kids starting fires nearby from the dry grass. Then a race team support truck pulled up and the guys got out and walked a ways towards the checkpoint and a hoard of young people quickly stole everything out of the truck that wasn't tied down. The Mexican people are very friendly. But within a few hours you can see the best, and worst in one place. Anywhere there is poverty you are going to see people do extreme things. They saw really rich people in their country spending money on a racing hobby , while they are dirt poor. I was just glad we decided not to hang out with the crowd and picked a spot watching from a safe distance. When our race truck checked-in late at night we drove down to the pit and shot some footage and followed it up the paved road until it went back into the dirt.
