In the States:
Wichita Falls, TX

The stupid shi.t you can think of... they do it in Korea. Sewer smell all over the city.
And the worst is racism. What they see on TV, is "reality". Whites are doctors, lawyers, execs, and Blacks are gangsters, rapists, theives. They have a status level for Asians.... they cry about Japan. And on the map they don't recoginze the Sea of Japan.

Homeless kids in streets and train stations. Nearly mugged across the street from the palace. The ppl try to shake you right hand and dig in your pockets with their left. Dogs everywhere.

Middle East:
Saudi Arabia
-- they throw trash out the window, on the highway!
NASCAR style tailgating at 80-90 MPH
and.... saw a driver on the highway, on a laptop!

I agree......Gary, Indiana....terrible,depressing city. We had to detour through the city last September due to the heavy rains and the I-94 was closed. Even the populace in the city looked depressed.

^^^ I actually agree with you about Fayetteville- this place bites! Two hours to the west are mountains and two hours to the east in the beach so its not all bad.
This is a military town and not as red neck as you may believe.
Im here for a short duration I assure you...

And I have to keep going back there again and again. It's like Ground Hog Day.
Parts of that city are more blown out than Iraq.

Paris, filthy? I've been there a few times and loved it. It's a major city so there is bound to be typical city grime but you can't beat it for culture and museums and architecture (not to mention food) it's a place I'll continue to visit along with the rest of France.

Mexico - now there's filth. I was in Cabo San Lucas about 10 years ago. Still the most sad and contrived place I've ever been. They dive on you to buy time shares like feeding sharks. Steps from your clean hotel the locals live on dirt floors and their children try to sell you gum and contaminated water. I felt guilty being able to afford my holiday. If it weren't for fresh shrimp I wouldn't have had a meal all week. But the number one reason to avoid Mexico is the police. We were warned by several people not to rent the open top VW bugs and travel around because the cops make a living out of shaking tourists down.

Morocco - I visited Tangiers on a whim when in Europe a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Friends have been to the desert, Casablanca, Fez, etc. and loved it too. When boarding the ferry back to Southern Spain you have to clear your passport at the ferry terminal in Tangiers though, not on the ferry as you do on the way over. You have to figure things out by watching, very little in the way of actual instruction. And reasonably, it helps to know either Arabic or French. They wouldn't deal with me at passport time, so the man with me had to clear it for me at their inspection. Even though it's a liberal Muslim country it helps to be traveling with a man, can't say what it is like without that.

Actually I agree about dog dirt. Forgot about that. I didn't notice it in Paris but in a smaller city in France where people just let their dogs go on any patch of grass and leave it. Quite a shock coming from a place where that law has been enforced for a long time. I didn't notice what you did in Paris - the people around me were fine. As far as bathrooms are concerned maybe it matters where they are. I've seen some disgusting examples in USA and Canada. Spitting is high on my list of disgusting habits and I see it occasionally in Toronto.

Do I have to pick just one? San Ysidro, Calif and Compton, Calif tie with Tijuana (Mexico) on my list.
And not sure what's up with the bathrooms in W.NY even the filthiest gas stations in the worst places in Calif have toilet seat covers.

The funny thing is that I missed on the very first page of this list Tijuana made the pick. Oh yeah, the smell. It's so weird that it starts exactly at the border too as soon as you're tempted by the plaster piggy banks and polyester blend gray serapes you just know you have to brave that smell to get to them...

My very own town Penticton...
Not becauce it's beautiful, warn and thousands of people vacation here.
It's cuz we are a small town of 30,000 people that grows to 130,000 in summer, too hectic.
But if I was a visitor what a kick azz town.

Never traveled but what a great thread as to "not where to go"

The Bronx, NY, in a 95F heat and the garbage is rotting on the streets in the black plastic bags. The place smelled like death itself.
