Here's a few:

New Delhi, India - fascinating but has extreme air pollution and lots of desparately poor beggars.

Niagara Falls, New York - just plain depressing

Pisa, Italy - Worst tourist trap I've seen

Paris, France. I great palce on one level, but is quite a dirty city. Though I've been to places with a much more dangerous reputation, Paris is the only plac eI almost got mugged.

4 New Orleans- before Katrina


I hear ya. Up until a week or two before summer, I was living in Louisiana. I'd been to New Orleans so many times that even Mardi Gras became boring to me. And there's not really anything interesting to do there. Yeah, there's the zoo and aquarium, but other cities have those, too. Oh well, at least most places in the New Orleans had good food.

Atlanta or Washington DC during rush hour.

International... Turkey. It's a beautiful country, lots of history and the people are friendly. But try to buy something in a shop and the people will haggle your a$$ off and try to get you to buy anything!

If that's your idea of a bad experience... you better stay home, I guess, because you just never know where somebody might attack you that way again!

New Jersey. It's the only state that's free to get in, but they charge you an arm and a leg to get back out. NYC isn't too great either...$60 will get you across 1 bridge (unless they've raised tolls AGAIN) if you are driving an 18.

The worst place I've been recently was Miami. I just remember getting lost in the city at night and having to stay the night at a hotel. There was a prostitution ring being run out of the hotel. The noises coming out of some of the adjacent rooms were rather, interesting.

Although I haven't really been everywhere in Miami so my opinion is subjective and based on a short experience. I'd definately go again if I was with somebody who knew the city better.

Geez - I thought Heathrow Airport was the best people watching place in the world - I could have spent days there! Great shopping too! Hated Athens, greece and only reason you fly there is to change airport and fly out to the islands!

Grimsby, Lincolnshire, England. Depressing place and i stayed there for 3 years. the streets were like walking through a mine field of dog poo. The walls covered in graffiti and there were burnt and run down buildings everywhere. I got robbed in Grimsby, i had a chicken from the chip shop cooked on outside and ice in the middle, half the people are rude and have the highest crime rate in lincolnshire, theres street races at night also. Grimsby is grim by name, grim by nature.

Toronto Ontario is horriable, dirty streets, lousy transportation, high crime, not to mention the street beggars. Stay well north of the city, don't go farther south than HWY 9 or you'll get shot, ice also falls from the CN tower killing a few every year and the city covers it up.



omg... man what part of TO were you in?

The Bahamas! I loved the area near the ocean, but it really sucked when you got away from the tourist spots. You wanna talk trashy!

Trapped in a Hotel in Spain because I couldn't find anyone who spoke English so I could move on. Finally just got on a train the next day and ended up farther down the coast where there were English speaking people. Mind you it was an adventure. Other worst is England early spring, cold, cloudy and miserable.

Waiting to clear customs at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow.


Ironically, my grandparents probably didn't wait as long at Elis Island when they made the trip in reverse, and the toilets were probably in better condition in 1915.

Super Dave I would have to agree although there are some lovely parts of Miami. I did have the terrible misfortune of checking into and quickly checking out of the most disgusting little road side hotel ever. As soon as we turned on the lights the roaches scurried in every direction. The beds were badly stained and the rooms smelled like urine and mildew. The cigar smoking manager with the huge boil on his face who showed us to the room was a bit perturbed when we said no thank you. Very Very creepy place.

hey barn2, i have to agree. some of the places that people have complained about, i've been to and while they weren't my favourite spots to return to, they were adventures and stories all on their own. of course, it helps that i'm a bit adventurous and probably get myself into things rather than sitting tight in my hotel but i figure if i'm paying for the trip, what's the good in staying in the hotel?!!?!? lol

i have not seen the poverty that some have described and i'm thankful that i've been spared that. it's probably one of the reasons i won't ever go to india. but i never planned on going to china until i was told to go for work. was a lovely amazing experience and yes there was poverty but the people always seem to make a place, don't they??

i do have to say that i'm always glad to come home, though.

Belem, Brazil, by far. As the taxi driver took me further into the city, it became more and more obvious that this was the biggest dump that the world had to offer. I could not believe how bad it was. The streets were just paved with drunks, ugly hookers, drug addicts, and criminals of every kind. The buildings were in such terrible shape that it seemed strange that they had been erected in the first place. Here was a city where absolutely no one was evicted.

When I finally reached my hotel room, the floor was so disgusting that I didn't want to walk on it in my hiking shoes, and the bed was so awful that I didn't want to lie down on it. I finally walked out and just left the place behind. I grabbed another cab and rode to the airport to see Curitiba, which was absolutely beautiful.

Port au Prince, Haiti. The poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. It is an eye opening experience to see how good we have it in the U.S.
