3 favorite places you've ever visited, and the 3 worst. Any why?FavVerona Italy, gorgeous city, best outdoor market Ive ever seen, amazing food. upscalePrague, castles, cheap incredible beer, awesome nightlife, good foodYosemite National Park, camping under giant redwoods, 2000 foot waterfalls, insane hikes, endless things to see, everything was close and easy to get toWorstPhiladelphia PA, negroes, drugs, people are nasty, extremely unsafeMemphis TN, the scariest US city Ive ever visited. We never felt safe anywhere. Hollywood California, a complete tourist trap, dirty as shit, homeless drug addicts everywhere, traffic and parking were ridiculous, it was one giant disappointment
>>2365767Fav:>Smokey Mountains I’m NC/Tennessee. The landscape is beautiful and there is a lot of our door and stupid fun tourist stuff to do. No humidity and the weather is great>St. Augustine, Fl. I really enjoy the aesthetics of all the buildings and still has a nice small town feel. It’s a little touristy but not as bad as places like Orlando>San Diego. The best big city I’ve been too. The weather is great, and never felt unsafe waking around down town. I’m also a craft beer lover and breweries every whereWorst:>LA. The place is very over rated, trashy, and way to many people. The air felt bad too. Hollywood is def a shit hole, and got lost in Mexi town>New Orleans. The weather is shit and humid. Niggers everywhere. Bourbon Street smells like vomit and piss, felt like I was gonna get an STd by walking in a bar. Yes the food is good but can get the same food at better Louisiana towns>Jackson, Mississippi. Just a horrible city all around, same problems as New Orleans, just zero charm what so ever. The suburbs are okay, but don’t make up for it.Yeah I’m pretty shelters and haven’t visit much outside the US besides the Caribbean. Lots of places in the US though
>>2365767Fav, in order of visiting, not ranked-Tokyo, got laid a few times after a 15 year dry spell. I'd considered suicide but spending 3 months there gave me a new lease on life.-Saigon, loved the sprawl, chaos, cheap lifestyle. Stayed for a few years.-Central Laos. Spent 4 weeks caving, rock climbing, and living outdoor adventures I'd dreamed of since I was a kid.Worst:-Las Vegas. It is what it is, but it wasn't for me. Having to fight off a junkie when I took the wrong exit from a mall makes it the worst.-Colchester, UK. Why the fuck did I go there? Not terrible, just boring, and bad weather.-Los Angeles. I'm listing it because I don't really have any terrible destination. I was there in February and two separate Black History month pamphleteers called me a Slave Master for ignoring them.
>>2367750>-Tokyo, got laid a few times after a 15 year dry spell. I'd considered suicide but spending 3 months there gave me a new lease on life.Please tell us more, anon.
>>2367742>St. AugustineIts layout prevents overgrowth. I suppose the Spaniards were good for something in that regard.
>>2367756There's not much to tell. Probably a meme story on /trv. I went through a long list of terrible life events, both by my own fault and out of my control. Hated my job and considered quitting but I was terminated before I had the chance. I had severance pay and nothing else going for me. My apartment lease was up and I moved my stuff to storage, decided to go to Japan for a few months and maybe end it afterwards or along the way. Once in Japan, I spent a week or two adjusting, and I realized that having daily challenges in life made existential problems go on the back burner.Met a girl on Tinder while it still was a "friend finder" in Asia. Used her as a tour guide and went to a love hotel a few times. It was casual and I met another girl, who was clingy and (I soon discovered) crazy. Met another. Made friends with Japanese guys and girls (and some expats) and developed a social circle - which didn't last longer than my trip, but amazed me by how easy it was when I wasn't wrapped up in my own head. Decided that life really wasn't so bad, at least as long as it stayed interesting. And decided not to kill myself and instead looked for ways to earn a living remotely. Applied for jobs until I got one.In my opinion, the destination I chose was irrelevant. I'd often thought to myself "before I kill myself, I'll go to X country/location". They've varied over the years: California, Africa, India, Japan. When it was time, my destination was Japan. I guess I didn't really want to die because instead of taking the quick jump off an expressway bridge, I actually visited the destination I'd dreamed about. I'm glad I did, and now many years later, I've got kids and I'm happier than I've ever been before. Happier than many of my old friends back in my home country. I wouldn't change a thing.
>>2365767Worst:1. India: just an extreme shithole in every way possible only good thing about it are the virgin prostitutes you can get for like 100 dollars.2. Paris: rude people, lines for everything, expensive as fuck, dirty, bad cuisine and police let gypsies do as they please (which is to scam you). 3. Hollywood: overrated, must have a car as their public transport is fucking garbage, lots of druggies, lots of theft, lots of people obsessed over race that you gatta be careful with what you say >>2367750I'm going to Laos next week. Wtf should I do there?
>>2367809Virgin prostitutes in India? Do tell? How do you know they are virgins? Do they look good? Do they smell as bad as people say? Does there pussy taste like curry? I kinda want to bust inside a virgin India girl anon.
How the fuck do you people stay places for years?I legitimately don't understand the arrangements are possible for anyone who isn't rich and can casually just abandon work/paying for stuff at home/etc
>>2367942A. University/Grad students who are studying abroadB. Employment geared specifically towards foreigners (work holiday visa, teaching English, etc.)C. Remote work
>>2365767>Best >Athens, Greece Never been somewhere so romantic yet so shitty. Gritty, dirty big city, juxtaposed against a majestic, historic and captivating place full of winding old streets. Beautiful beaches, weird commie anarchist neighbourhoods, vibrant music/arts/history, riot police on every corner at all times, crumbling post-modern architecture and beautiful outdoor cafes. Also beautiful girls, cheap whores and good food. >Barcelona, Spain. Not going to go down well on /trv/ but I’ve never had a bad vibe in this city. Big, cosmopolitan and international, modern yet loads of incredibly beautiful streets and neighbourhoods. Constantly has good events, great music/performance scenes and amazing restaurants/bars, imo some of the best in Europe. In summer, Barcelona transforms into a sunny party city and attracts some of the most incredible women in the world and has one of the best party scenes in Europe.One thing that I also like about Barcelona is the fact that it’s very much populated with normal, everyday Spanish people and families. Something that is pretty much lost on all of the other big international Western European cities. >Worst >Agadir, Morocco. Filthy Islamic shithole from head to toe. Literally nothing redeeming, interesting or nice about the place. Full of scammers, child beggars, dirty beaches and disgusting food. No history, no historic architecture, zilch. Literally the only redeeming aspect is the weather in Winter. >London, England. I’ve spent more time here than any of the aforementioned cities, IMO London is a soulless, godless place at this stage with very little of value left. Every time I even step foot in London at this point I get this crippling feeling of hopelessness and dread. The people, the local culture and everything in between is just off. It feels like an airport.
>>2365767AzoresSingaporeAo nang krabiWorstSouth koreaSouth korea South korea
>>2365767Fav:1) Shanghai, China (pre-covid) - you could get everything from craft beer to local arcades to some authentic chinese shit. There were tons of interesting places from first ever vegan restaurant in the world to skybars serving Shaoxing rice wine (I developed taste of that stuff) to very modern and very impresive Bund - all in span of 5km and all different to western equivalents (or even to other Asian cities). Such a shame of what happens to China lately. I hope that CCP finally dies during my lifetime.2) Taba, Egypt - new favorite vacation spot. Mountains of Sinai Peninsula look absolutely epic during sunrise. During sunset sunlight illuminates other side of gulf of Aqaba, resulting with that sight of wide, red, horizontal strip of light - I've never seen anything like it elsewhere. In between of sunrise and sunset it's usual, fun, sunbath > swim > drink routine.3) Manhattan, New York - I was there in 1998 and 20 years later and for anyone who grew on popculture, this place is like Mecca for muslims. From Battery Park to Harlem, you literally can't substitute it with anything else.Worst:1) Whatever capital of Bangladesh is - I won't even bother checking it's name right now. It's like if worst muslim shithole and worst indian shithole had a baby. Cockroaches were in size of mice. Mice were in size of rats and rats could eat human baby with one bite. I've spent there only few hours of my life sometime in 2000 and I will never forget it.2) Łódź, Poland - most filthy and depressing city of Poland. Probably worst shithole of EU. It's like Polish Detroit, except that it was never great. Everytime I had to go there felt like an undeserved punishment.3) Bronx, New York - literal nigger shitholes in Africa feel more safe than this nigger shithole.
>>2365767Best:Akihabara, Tokyo (geek heaven)An onsen town in Gunma near Tokyo (forgot it's name but it was beautiful) Kanagawa, near Tokyo (beautiful shrines and buildings)Worst:Melbourne (it's shit)Sydney (it's shit)Launceston (it's SUPER shit, it's a bumpkin meth town)
>>2368189>3) Manhattan, New York>There are people who actually like New YorkEven in the 70's it looked like it was hell on earth (see Taxi Driver)
>>2368201>Even in the 70's it looked like it was hell on earth (see Taxi Driver)I was there during Giuliani era and then in 2018 when American economy was booming. I wouldn't want to live there, but for some europoorfag who grew up on Spider-man and Ninja Turtles, it's still a spiritual experience.
Not a heavy traveller, so I'll just list my top.Favorite: Tokyo - Weeb and also just because of how different it from the US while being extremely clean.Worst: Beijing - I basically responded to this thread because I wanted to shit on Beijing. It's such a soulless city and doesn't even have the interesting soviet decay that you get from eastern europe. The air pollution probably contributed heavily my experience because my memory of the city was just a depressing grey dystopian blur.
>>2368262It's pretty amazing how two megacities differ between "communism" and democracy
>>2368271Taipei is probably a better example. It also happens to be my #2 favorite destination after Japan. I don't know any mandarin though, so it lost points for that.
>>2368189The capital of Bangladesh is Dhaka, I remembered without looking it up
>>2368189Dhaka is still better than any big Indian city. They are all dirty third world shitholes but India is worse because it's full of Indians.
>>2365767>FavoritesBarcelona - good food, fun people, great vibe barhopping and a lot to see and do, even if its got a bad reputation it was a lot of funPrague - Cheap, castles, honest guides helped a ton, met a decent amount of locals and had a great time. Beer girl at the little beer shack on your way out of Prague Castle, I still miss our fun times.Lviv - Food tourism, ballet and operas for pennies, beer at the beer theater was kino, street performing cover band let me use their drum set, my ex gf was ukrainian and handled all communication issues, best anal fuck session we had by far was there too>WorstVegas, fun shows and gambling but I can gamble at home without the drunkards, hookers, homeless and exhorbitantly high pricesSt Kitts - God awful country. Avg IQ is 67 and it fucking shows everywhere you go. The meat/fish/chicken you will be eating there is left unrefrigerated and rots at the supermarkets, run down city center, literal shit and piss in the oceans because sewers drain into them, fucking disgusting. London, literally nothing of value or worth here. Feels like a shitty version of NYC, British women are a fucking plague on the planet, just an overall shit destination.
>>2365767Best Paris>Aesthetic, lots of attractions to seeMunich>Laid back and not overcrowded, generally pleasant atmosphereBudapest>Cheap with good night life sceneWorstBrussels>Possibly the most boring place I've ever had the misfortune of visiting, nothing to do or see, seems dangerous outside the centreVienna>Also incredibly boring, didn't help everything was covered in scaffolding when I was thereMilan>Couple of things to see, but not much else, kind of a shithole too
BestLauterbrunnen Switzerland>relaxing and beautiful. didnt see a single black personKyoto, Japan>cultural and historical. enjoyed the temples and toursMarbella, Spain>like a much cleaner mexico with tiny meals.WorstMunich, Germany>what a shithole filled with syrian immigrantsPhiladelphia, PA>total shithole filled with democrats and blacksMilan Italy>what a soulless place with a bunch of faggots hyped up on fashion
BestZermatt, Switzerland> did a massive circular route round the Alps one summer, starting and finishing at Geneva. Whole thing was spectacular. Zermatt was the peak. The Matterhorn is there; outstanding hiking everywhere; wonderful vibe; it's Swiss so everything works and is spotless; expensive so no riff raff. Dreamy. Lofoten, Norway> A string of craggy peaks in the high Arctic. the Gulf Stream means the winters aren't that bad and the summers, with 24/7 daylight, are unbelievable. Unforgettable hikes, stunning scenery everywhere you look. If you go in the winter the high latitudes mean the aurora is everywhere and the villages clinging to the edges of snow-dusted fjords are lovely. NC 500, Scotland> You take a car and drive around the extreme northwest of Great Britain. You don't just drive the NC500 itself like a retard you take detours to places like Skye and get the ferry over to Orkney. Allow at least two weeks. One of the world's greatest road trips.WorstMarmaris, Turkey > full of deanos on the piss. In fairness it is very nice outside the tourist hellhole part. Paris, France> This is a difficult one to say it is shit. I suppose it must have been excellent during the covid lockdowns as you could move around without being scammed or crushed New York City> holy fuck it sucks. Busy and loud and in Manhattan you lose sight of the sun too easily. Lots of people I know IRL love it. Must be a normie meme.
>>2365767Best1. Hawaii2. Pacific Northwest3. Southern UtahWorst1. Georgia2. Oklahoma/Northern Texas3. Southern Idaho
>>2368189>I've spent there only few hours of my life sometime in 2000 and I will never forget itWas it a layover or was it your final destination but you said fuck this and headed back to the airport?
>>2368722I mean Paris is also a literal shithole outside the "centre"
>>2365767Favorite:- New York- Puerto Villarta- VancouverLeast favorite- Phoenix- Cabo- Toronto
>>2368262>Beijing has no soulThis is retarded. Only part you are correct on is the air quality but that an old generalization of the city now. The air now is much better than it was better.
>>2368207I lived in NYC from 2014-2020 and it was an awesome time, can't wait to go back.
Best:Bora Bora, French PolynesiaKaanapali, MauiKohala coast, Hawaii IslandWorst:San Francisco, CASeattle, WAVancouver, BC
>>2370145Had many hours between flights, also I needed to make visa in advance to go outside. Airport was very representative for whole place: despite warm and wet climate everything (bathrooms included!) was covered with thick textile, that was rotting and smelled bad. Outside everything was rotting and stinked as well, so thematic integrity was kept.I remember food in Bengal airlines was good though: more similar to traditional restaurant than bland airplane food (despite my worries, it went without diarrhea).When I think about this, maybe I'll give Bangladesh another chance. In 22 years places and people do change.
>>2367779Did you learn any Japanese when you were in Japan? I plan on going to Japan in the near future, not to get laid but for many, many reasons. The nature is amazingly beautiful, the people there are really reserved and modest, I feel like it's probably one of the best places to visit but i wouldn't know since I've never been there :p
>>2370651If you had a bad time in San Fran, Seattle and Vancouver, you didn't plan your trip very well. There are endless things to do around those cities. From you list, it seems like you like tropical places. Why are you going to the Pacific northwest?
>>2370624>I lived in NYC from 2014-2020 and it was an awesome time, can't wait to go back.
BestTaipei, TaiwanHangzhou, ChinaNong Khai, ThailandWorst:London, UKToronto, CanadaSeattle, WA / Vancouver, BC
>>2370707The only thing worth seeing in the PNW is the nature, not the disgusting shithole cities filled with liberal junkies.

>>23657673 best:>Cordoba, Spainbeautiful architecture and good food>Milos/Lefkada/Crete, Greecebest beaches in the mediterranean by far >Zinal, Switzerlanda must see in the winter3 worst:>Milan, Italyoverrated, full of scammers, nothing to see besides the architectural crime against humanity that is the duomo>NYCdo I really need to explain this one?>Las Vegasjust a big theme park for boomers, everything is fake and cringe
>>2371106Olympic National Park and Mount Rainer are the balls... I want to go back to WA State but fk those hippies in the cities
I'm not well travelled and just breaking into this as a hobby, but I'm going to leave these recommendations from my home county (UK)Best Edinburgh - had to go here for military training and thought it was great. Architecture, atmosphere, everything. Very pleasant city, a lot to see and friendly people to meet.York - lived here for a few years, wonderful city. Ridiculously safe, I unfortunately fainted in the city center one night and instead of getting mugged some Spanish students woke me up, asked me if I was okay and gave me a cheeseburger. Never saw any crime.WorstLondon - first thing I saw after stepping out of the train station was a barefoot homeless person eating out of a bin. Entire city is full of boring, miserable people.Doncaster - never have I been to a more dreary place Bolton - Muslim infested shithole, full of crime, stabbings, crack, cocaine, gangs and poverty.
>>2367756what the fuck lmao why is this board full of 18 years old virgins
>>2372677>Milan, Italy>overratednever seen anyone (except me) rate it highly
>>2365767You're the biggest queer I've ever heard from on this board. Stay in Yurop, fag.
>>23657673 favs: >Rome Because of my intense connexion with both the work of Caravaggio and Ancient Rome>PragueBecause of the 1900 architecture, it made me think about how Paris should have stayed, it was probably the best place ever in the 1900s. Also baroque music, Bach organ concerts in churches.>KyotoGoing anywhere in Kyoto on a fresh sunny morning, the Philosopher's Path, Fushimi Inari, where ever...3 worsts: Urban nightmares and commieblocks of the civilized world (because i've never been in a non developped country). Le Havre is dreadful, Bruxelles and let's say Parisian suburbs.I'd love to have travel recommendations based on this plz
>>2373470OP here, i want to eat your georgeous cock while also drinking an exquisite and amazing little glass of whine in a quaint and cheap little place. Upscale.
I haven't been to an awful lot of places so I just do 1 best and 1 worst:>Best: VietnamOvernight buses are awesome, good selection of acommodation especially shared accommodation, plenty of stuff to do, people are generally friendly to foreigners, food is great, it's got it all with little downsides. Favourite city was Hue, least favourite city was da nang.>Worst: SantoriniYes it's picturesque, but there's nothing to do after you take that photo at least for a guy like me who doesn't spend much money when on holiday. If you want the greek island experience, there are dozens of others that might not look exactly the same but are similar, and they will be a nicer experience.
>>2372677>>Las Vegas>just a big theme park for boomers, everything is fake and cringeIf you don't play aor come to see a show or to enjoy the food, there's no reason to go there in the first place.
>>2367779>It amazed me how easy it was when I wasn't wrapped up in my own headThis is exactly why I urge people to go backpacking. When you spend a couple weeks (or months, or years) doing the backpacking thing, every day offers something new and you get a new perspective on your problems. I can't explain why, maybe it's because when you're backpacking you tend to make last minute decisions ("Fuck it, I'll skip Nice and take the train to Marseille!") and that makes you realise that you can make decisions about the more important things in your life too.There is a phenomenon that astronauts come back to Earth with a greater interest in environmental concerns, altruism etc. Because seeing the whole world as just a ball of blue and green has some crazy effects on their beliefs. I think backpacking is kind of similar.
>>2370126>Pacific Northwest A dead, grey, soulless, sleepy, socialist hell with destroyed downtowns, empty streets, no energy, just cliquey vegan faggots with rich parents. People here don’t socialize, they don’t go out (though I don’t blame them, people here are fucked and genuinely hate each other) People here are stripped of whatever made them human in the first place. The only major metropolitan areas where you can taste depression in the air, despite the beautiful nature, which honestly adds to the gloominess.
Favorite: >Chhattisgarh, India: rural and predominately tribal state in east-central India. The whole area has a bad reputation for insurgency and violence, which keeps most visitors away. However, the entire region is incredibly beautiful, insofar it's heavily forested, mountainous, and incredibly biodiverse. It also has some of the most unique and isolated cultures in the entirety of "mainland" India. People are very, very friendly, but not in the obnoxious, quasi-autistic way that North Indians can be friendly. Locals can be a little suspicious of outsiders, but there's zero hassle or harassment. The tribals also make really good alcohol, kek >Turkey: First country I ever visited outside of the United States. I went for the first time in 2013 and stayed in Istanbul for about a year in 2020-2021. IMO, it's one of the most-visited countries in the world for a reason: the people are extraordinarily hospitable, especially outside of big cities, and the entire country is drop-dead gorgeous. Istanbul is probably--and unironically--one of the most naturally beautiful urban areas in the world. Great views everywhere, reasonably safe, and cheap AF due to the ongoing lira crisis >Colombia + Mexico: hard tie, can't really pick which I prefer. I'm not a coomer, I just really liked the sort of energy and vibrancy in most big, Latin American cities. If I had to choose one of the two, I'd probably go with Mexico, just because the food is so much better picrel from a bike trip I took in east-central india earlier this year (sorry for crappy angle, don't have anything better on laptop and too lazy to transfer from phone)
>>2373703cont. Worst: >Athens: wasn't an abjectly awful city, but I had a bad case of Paris Syndrome. I visited Athens on my first-ever trip, immediately after going to Istanbul. I guess I should have done my research beforehand, but I'd expected that Athens would be this beautiful, historic place where you could easily observe the remnants of its ancient civilization. I was fully expecting that I'd find Istanbul boring and be overwhelmed by Athens. Instead, I found an extremely hot, dirty, and polluted concrete jungle that was more or less completely covered in graffiti >San Pedro Sula: I actually had a really good time visiting SPS, but it was very, very obvious that the locals lived in a constant state of near-crippling fear can't really think of anywhere else, I've been to about ~70 countries and unironically had a good time just about everywhere. there are certain cities and countries I wouldn't go out of my way to revisit, but I'd nowhere I'd reject outright
>>2373704>AthensThe center of Athens has been taken over by immigrants, mostly shitty Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. Greeks have fled the center of Athens to further away exurbs like Korydallos, Marousi, Kifissia, Lagonisi, Gylfada, etc. In Athens the opposite of what is happening in most of the world is happening. Most the world has seen the city center being reclaimed by the rich and the professional yuppie class and their gentrifying, but in Athens the property market is the reverse, the city center is now a dump that is like an Islamic shitstain country and the outer areas of Athens are more expensive and sought after. Finally this trip I spent much more time in the wealthier sections on the outer perimeter of Athens and the infrastructure still sucks, but it is nothing like the dystopia that is the Athens city center which is a mini Karachi or Dhaka at this point.
>>2373726Btw, I don't want to screw anyone over with this post:I am not saying or recommending to stay at those exburbs which are further away from almost all the tourist destinations you will want to visit. They are also further from the cultural events if you know Greek. If you have more money it is probably better to stay in Monastiraki or Plaka that are in the city center but still too expensive for the Islamic riff raff to swarm on the property market. If you have less money it is probably better to stay in Exarcheia which is much cheaper, but poor Greek hippies, arthouse types, anarchists and communists still live there which limits the Islamic floodgate. I personally have chosen a hotel in the center of Pakistan in Greece, Metaxourgeio. But I know Greek and much more interested in participating in Greek language nightlife(theater, concerts, etc.) and the city center is still closer where most of those venues are located. The nearby subway also has just a few stops till it connects to Trainose(suburban rail line), Omonia, Syntagma, etc.
>>2368708>London, literally nothing of value or worth hereObjectively wrong, yes it's full of foreigners but if you actually research places to go outside of the main tourist traps for retards there is heaps to see.
>>2373740I would imagine one of the things to do in London is seeing some world class theater. But I would imagine that like in NYC it is crazy expensive. I saw Book of Mormom on Broadway and just one ticket cost me $199... But it was worth it, you it was like watching well trained racing horses, they were just so good at acting and signing, the set design was amazing, the script by Matt and Trey Parker was on point. I got the impression that if I wanted to see Hamilton the tickets would have been more expensive at like $300 at the time.
>>2373747I'm not sure i've ever been to a theatre in London but i'll take your word for it. For me, it's finding all the old pubs in hidden twittens and stumbling upon random historic plaques and markers.
>>2373749England produces such good actors that most Americans don't know or are slow to realize that their favorite "American/Hollywood" actors are British. As a Wire fan(HBO series) I was shocked to learn that Idris Elba was a British born black, he was and is that damn good of an actor and he has nailed American English in general and in the case of the Wire, the Baltimore accent. As I understand it a lot of these English actors start out in London theater(unlike many American Hollywood actors who eschew theater). Personally I won't visit London(I live in the near suburbs of NYC so I see little reason from the theatrical angle), but I know many of their theaters have a strong global reputation. But you will like pay out of the nose for the experience since many of the rich globetrotters likely love it as well, driving up prices just like with top Broadway productions.
Favs:Hong Kong:Skyscrapers, hiking trails, hill views, easy coom, the food was amazing and cheap in the local places, interesting history and culture, every neighborhood has it's own vibe and story. crazy public transportation, rice fields, anything for everyone really whether you're an anxious pussy who wants a safe trip or someone who wants to try the local lifeBerlin:History, poverty / gang tourism (I like to see uglier parts of a city), international food, lots of asian sluts throwing themselves at you, crazy nightlife, easy drug scoring, interesting peopleManila:insane coom (woke up to 300+ notifications), poverty tourism, great nightlife, manila bay is gorgeous, very cheap luxury hotels with bay viewsWorst:Amsterdam:I am sure this is going to be a shock to all the virtual travellers in here but it's a seriously boring city. I can have plenty of coom and drugs where I am. Annoying loud tourists, cold as shit, typical western goyslop food (they think french fries are a cultural staple LMFAO), bikers think they are entitled to pavements (not the bike paths), it's just really sterile and boringWarsaw:Depressing place with depressed cold people. Only decent landmarks were 2 castles, the rest of the city is a commie block dark shithole. The only time the food was good was when I ate at a lebanese restaurant. People look like their kids just died, never smile. Would not returnIstanbul, Turkey:It was great 10 years ago but now it's a restricted Islamist shithole with arabs and moroccan refugees swarming the streets. The food has gotten worse and it's now catered to Arab and British tourists who don't know what good food tastes like anyway. The historical landmarks were decent though.
>>2373939>Istanbul>worst >muh Arab refugees fucking bitch.
Faves:>PragueBeautiful architecture, very fun social stuff, great food, cheap>Katmai National Park in AlaskaWe saw like 40 bears in 3 hours, not an exaggeration, there were so many fucking bears it was insane. Pic related>Amsterdam Weed, beautiful canals, just walked around the city fucking around with my friends for days>least faves>Minneapolis It was boring as hell, nothing to do>NottinghamLmao>the Grand CanyonIt was cool but way overhyped
>>2373519>Da nangI found to lack the cultural richness of Hanoi and the chaotic excitement of saigon. Felt like off-brand new York to me, what made you like it so much.

>>2374758How much fun you have in Vienna depends on how much dough you have to spend. The really good bars and restaurants are pricey. But the architecture and museums are world class for sure. And the university is really rad at night on the weekends. Everyone sits out and drinks beer in the parks. I think you'd be insane to skip Vienna if you were doing a Czech-Budapest train ride.
>>2373939>>2374054 Opposite views on Amsterdam. I think it’s a great place to visit with frens as you’ll have a blast or it’s worth at most a day trip otherwise.

>>2365767>in NYC>family friend comes to visit>“Hey ive never been to LA but want to visit”>inform her that it sucks to visit and stress NOT to visit Hollywood Blvd>tell her to go to Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada insteadI told her if she came to LA id take her around and give her the grand tour, but visiting LA without someone like me to show you around/drive you sounds like a damn nightmare. I pity people who come to LA on vacation. It must be exhausting for anyone not used to navigating here. That being said ill take anyone on a trip around the city and we will have an awesome time. LA is my home and ill never leave it. Its a great place to live. So relaxed, great weather, tons of industry and money flowing through it, great food etc.
>>2374771>THERES HECKIN HISTORINO!! and and.. and...MUSEUMS!
>>2368194>An onsen town in Gunma near Tokyo (forgot it's name but it was beautiful)Kusatsu? All 3 times I've been were incredible. I'm suprised that it's not known outside of Japan.
>>2365767Fav:>Taipei - Simple as fuck to get around. Good hikes right outside the city. Easy enough to get to a beach. Food is awesome. Bubble tea is cheap and awesome. Women are easy. Nightlife is fun. LBH's fucking suck though.>Tbilisi - Cheap, safe, people are bros (so long as you aren't Russian). Women aren't easy but will lose their virginity to you if you're 6'4" and /fit/. Food is good, but did get bad food poisoning my last day there last time I was there.>The Tatras - Seem to come out of fucking nowhere. Look like the Grand Tetons of Europe. Easy to get around without a car. Hikes are great, lots of chatas to stop at and get food and even draft beer at really reasonable prices considering all of it had to be hiked in on the backs of some Slovak chad.Worst:>Bogota - dirty, huge, and dangerous, Colombian food is fucking terrible, practically nothing of note to see.>Seattle - Immense amounts of homeless, expensive, everywhere is on islands so getting around it is a fucking nightmare of traffic, people tend to be total autistic faggots which I blame on the shit weather nearly 24/7>Athens - Anywhere outside of 2km of the Parthenon is a graffiti covered dystopian hellscape. So much human shit in the street it gives India a run for it's money.Honorable mention for shittiest is Fes. It's a city full of con artists and has nothing to see. Better medinas nearly anywhere else in the country. Biggest tourist attraction being leather tanneries which are depressing as is because the people who work in them look like literal slaves. Fuck Fes, and fuck all the instagram thots and faggot travel bloggers who list it as a 'magical place to get lost in the winding alleys of the medina.'
>>2368722>ViennaVienna has a fuck load to see you retard. Way more than Munich and it has a better 'atmosphere'>MilanMilan is way less of a shithole than Paris. Also, compared to cities in southern Italy it's LEAGUES better.>>2374731Agreed with this chad.
>>2368923I regret not doing the NC500 when I was there. I did drive over to Skye with some detours along the way and it was a great road trip. Not as keno as driving the south island of NZ though.
>>2370126Agreed with PACNW in terms of cities and towns that are full of homeless and faggots/tech bros(interchangeable) but gtfo of here in terms of natural beauty. The Cascades and the Mt Hood and Mt Rainier wildernesses are the best natural beauty America has to offer.And Georgia? You best be talking about the state you faggot.>>2371105Based Taipei appreciator and Seattle hater>>2372173Santa Marta fucking sucks, but Minca is top tier.>>2372752York is probably my favorite English city. I also liked Newcastle quite a bit.>>2373488Hard to be sad when you distract yourself with the complications of getting from point A to point B. Probably why traveling is addictive because it's a great distraction to mundane shit.>>2374769Agreed. I went to the big cemetery where all the composers are buried and thought it was one of the most interesting places I'd ever been. Some fucking ridiculous tombs there, ended up leaving with like twenty tabs open of people to look up because their grave sites were that ridiculous.
>>2373740>if you actually research places to gohidden gems exist everywhere, from big megacity to middle of nowhere capital. You couldn't even name one thing off the top of your head, and in response to another anon you only brought up pubs and fucking plaques. It really shows just how terrible of a pick London is>dude london is not that bad, trust me>like its got british pubs... IN BRITAIN! >there's also historical plaques bro! literally travel across the globe to look at metal slabs with words words words on it its so worth!>it's full of foreigners which is bad i knowbut even worse than the foreigners are the local brits. If you've interacted with brits abroad you'll realize why hookah with Ahmed is a better hangout than Elizabeth and her chav friends. I think you even subconsciously recognize this as true since your best advice for enjoying london is to go to a pub and get so shitfaced drunk you think fucking plaques make the trip worth it.You can have fun in the UK by staying far the hell away from London, but London as a whole is atrocious.
>>2365767My fav:-Chania (Crete), historic centre is really nice and the country offers many interesting activities.-Florence, one of the best cities I've ever been, great food, museums and nightlife.-Funchal (Madeira) awesome landscape, a nice city sorrounded by nature.Worst:-Egypt, extremely dirty, rude people that always try to scam you and shitty food.-Dublin, one the most boring places I've ever seen and too much expensive.-Milan, not the worst but extremely overrated, it's okay to visit it if you like shopping and similar bullshit
>>2377244vienna is literally a few luis vuitton stores and a church surrounded by industrial land and infused with muslims lmao
>>2377233Vegas is like that. If you show up in Vegas, most people are going to walk the strip aimlessly. It's too overwhelming to find the gems around town. I jump in the vegas threads here and try to get people off the strip. Ive had friends visit with an itinerary and demand to do stupid shit. "We want to eat at Gordon Ramsey, We want to do 7 magic mountains, we want to do the neon sign museum" That stuff sucks and there's no talking people out of it. You have to get the info from the locals.
>>2368601Not even close. Dhaka is the worst South Asian city. Indian big cities at least have newly built areas which are surprisingly neat and well kept. Dhaka is just depressing. Outside of Nepal, India is the best South Asian country. Grim I know. t. Worked with telecom company setting shit up in South Asia for a decade.
>>2377276>London as a whole so atraciousCouldn’t disagree more. It’s soulless, expensive, but ultimately majestic.
>>2377711Huh? Gordon Ramsay was awesome, best food ever.
>>2377235yes animal, now fuck off back to the HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF [souless tourist resort]
>>2373939>Hong Kong>easy coomas in paid?
>>2372677>>Las Vegas>just a big theme park for boomers, everything is fake and cringeLas Vegas has some of the best nightlife in the world if you have a bit of cash to spare. the nightclubs there are fucking amazing and I say this as someone who's not really into clubbing. people (including many young girls) travel there for the nightlife from all over the US, it's fun as shit
>>2365767Fav>Rome, Italy - Literally everything about the city>Marbella, Spain - Best place to chill>Alexandria, Egypt - Peak Egypt without the craziness of CairoWorst>Paris, France - Shithole >London, England - Shithole>Dublin, Ireland - Boring af and needlessly expensive
>>2368097Absolutely spot on about Athens. I just visited last week and loved the city. Saw a dude just pissing in a bush on a busy footpath, got called a "stingy boy" by a cute gypsy girl for not giving her money and saw a morbidly obese man with vomit on his shirt stumbling around Monastriaki.Amazing place.
Best:>Cusco, PeruOutstanding landscape, chill locals, busy but quiet at the same time>Guadalupe Peak, TexasInteresting mountain with dead landscape forever>southwestern Virginia in generalAs a Virginia native, I appreciate my home although not from that region in particular. Nothing beats these types of rural mountain forests and farms scattered landscape.Worst>Midlands, EnglandIt’s all pretty boring except for the Peak District, and dreary weather overall>New York cityBeen several times, but not into that sort of thing>Miami, Florida Meh, but cool nature areas if you leave the city
>>2378515Actually let me replace Miami with BarcelonaBasically Spanish NYC, too ugh for me
>BestNYC, Hanoi, Botswana >WorstSan Fran, London, Paris
>>2370623bin chilling faggot shill
>>2373731>>2373726I was there this summer and it was not that badin fact for a """"""""Western"""""""""" country Athens had probably the least Islamic Ghetto of any other major city. You cant escape these shitskin they are literally everywhereIt was dirty but whatever its a huge city, I liked Athens. I was happy to leave for Arcadia after but it was enjoyable
>>2374050Kiss the ring you Arab freak
>>2367750Being from Colchester I'm confused as to why you went there too. It is a fine place to grow up but other than the castle and the zoo it is just a regular ass Essex town.
>>2365767TokyiSt petersburghFernando de noronha
>>2367750> I was there in February and two separate Black History month pamphleteers called me a Slave Master for ignoring them.Lmao
>>2377967The Gordon Ramsey steakhouse is insanely overpriced and mediocre. Two scallops as an app for $55? A 6 once chicken breast entree for $50 with no side? I'll fucking pass bro. That's tourist nonsense. You only tell people that it was good because you overpaid and it's a coping mechanism. That's what chicks do. The Ramsey Pub is one of the worst restaurants on the strip Ive never had a worse meal anywhere in the city.
3 bestBrisbane - Awesome nightlife and plenty to do. Went there for a week, made lifelong friends. The place completely changed the trajectory of my life.Glacier National Park - Absolutely pristine, nice camping, and the views are breathtaking.Montreal - Beautiful city with amazing food. City is full of museums, music, and art.WorstCiudad Juarez - Had to go here to complete an immigration physical before relocating to Australia permanently. Dirty, dingy, full of crime.Boston, Massachusetts - overrated and full of assholes.Dallas, Texas - Full of assholes, just bigger ones than Boston. City under construction. No culture, completely soulless. Night Life was awful. Violent as fuck. Texas is the absolute worst US state.
>>2378668thinking about visiting fernando de noronha soon, it honeslty doesnt even look like its one of the top 5 beach spots in brasil i just wanna go to see what the hype is about ... what makes it so great exactly ???
>>2378811a Brisbane fan that isn't me, nice. That's the secret of Brisbane, we don't have the nightlife volume of melb and syd but the valley is probably the best single nightlife district Australia.3 Best (haven't been to the Americas yet)Strasbourg - Absolutely beautiful city with the best Christmas markets I went to in EuropeParis - I know the memes about Paris but I stayed in the city centre and its an amazing city, beautiful with so much to seeQueenstown, NZ - Stunning and great ski fieldsEdinburgh also top tier.3 WorstSydney - not horrible but so far below its potentialDubai - literally soullessBali - full of the lowest australians

>>2367809>Paris>Bad cuisineNigger, Paris has the second best cuisine in western Europe.

>>2379327>Provincetown, Massachusettskek.. should have just gone to San Francisco
>>2379327>Grenoble, FranceFavorite? I've only been passing through it but it sure seemed to suck ass
>>2377233are there other must do in LA that tourists dont know like the cinespia screenings? i absolutely loved those nights with friends, drinks and food. so comfy
>>2365767Favorite:>India>Vietnam>Myanmar>Had an extended stay in all three, no hassles, just one of the best times in my lifeWorst:>London, England>Too expensive for what you get. What a depressing boring city.
>>2365767Favourites:>SevillaAmazingly beautiful, cosy and authentically Spanish in contrast to cosmopolitan Barca. Great food, architecture and culture.>PragueMajestic architecture, good beer, food and nightlife. The city feels like a fairy tale during the Christmas period. >Kiev/KyivKinda like an eastern European Berlin with nationalism instead of all the muslims and nogs. Incredibly cheap, good food, great nightlife, beautiful women (who won't fuck you unfortunately), lots of history.
>>2379731Worst:>LondonHuge, expensive and depressing mall of a city filled to the brim with pakis and other browns.>MoscowSame as London but even bigger and more oppressive. Is populated by some of the unfriendliest people on the planet.>SplitZero interesting qualities aside from the close proximity to the sea and the city centre built by the Romans.
>>2373896English actors act like it’s a job and they are damned good at it. They’ll do movies and TV, and then do live theater just for fun or to keep their skills up. American actors will do a movie per year and then shake their tits or dicks for TMZ.
>>2379471Nta, but was quite pleasant for me and has a nice park above the city.Not my all time favourite though surely.
>>2379731Good thing you got to see kyev before Bidens war on Russia, it's being depopulated now and will be filled with Africans and indians once the wars over, just another zog colony
>>2365767Fav>Beirut, LebanonLived here for a while, just an amazing place, good weather, laid back way of life, beaches and mountains easily accessible, only place in the middle east I could settle down>AlgeriaThe entire country, very underrated, some great nature and scenery to escape to and possibly the cheapest place I've ever travelled>Amalfi coast, ItalyFull of tourists but stunning nevertheless and basically heaven on earthWorst>Tashkent, UzbekistanBoring, soulless, polluted city>The NetherlandsFor me it's just not that interesting, Utrecht is nice but generally everywhere I went just looked and felt the same>Zaporizhzhia, UkraineIt's just shit
>>2379839/pol/ called, they're missing one of their kissless virgins. Go back.
>>2379839Europe in general seems messed. I was watching some videos on Amsterdam, nothing but gay flags on the historical buildings and entirely tourists and non-whites. Didn't even look like a country, more like a dutch themed amusement park. I guess if I ever want to see Holland I'll go to Huis Den Bosch in Japan. I'll just stick to non-ZOG countries.
>>2365767Best>Ko Lipe, Thailand>Tbilisi, Georgia>Russia generally Worst>Marrakesh, MoroccoReally just made bad by the overly pushy locals and the general lack of safe feeling basically everywhere.>Colombo, Sri LankaSpent an ungodly amount of time here that was all completely wasted. Every single second spent here and not somewhere else in Sri Lanka is a complete waste of time. The airport is the worst I've ever been to in the world.>Sydney, AustraliaWas gonna give this last spot to LA but then I remembered this fucking place, a morally bankrupt, totally soulless city full of grim NPCs. There's nice beaches but nothing special you couldn't find anywhere else in Australia.
>>2379853All the people on the right side of your image died for zog, all part of the plan to depopulate Ukraine, the wives and daughters are now whores in Dubai and other places I've seen them in my travels. That's what they got for not resisting the American invasion.
>>2379901>bro it was America that made Russia cross the border with men, tanks and trucks against Russia’s will!I seriously struggle to comprehend how you can be this fucking stupid.
>>2379930No because you see by killing a generation of white men and wiping out the ethnic nationalists Putin is actually saving the white raceIt's 4D chess and I wouldn't expect a brainwashed sheepie like you to get it
>>2379945It's America that is genociding Ukrainians that's their main goal...here take these useless weapons and get blown up by artillery >>2379881Now is the time to see Europe. It's almost too late to see western Europe there's no culture left it's basically a museum surrounded by violent coloreds. Eastern Europe you can still safely visit and experience the culture but they are being drained of the youth population for the globohomo meat grinder. In 20 years it will be gone and look like brazil
>>2373519They are parts of Brussels that are so beautiful. It's so sad that mass migration has turned another gem into a third world s***hole
>>2377719any advice you can give on surviving india? my plan is to get to sri lanka from nepal and im thinking just avoid all major cities. my indian friend told me its worth seeing the forts in rajasthan but not sure if its just going to be tawdry tourist bullshit and scams. I want to avoid crowds as much as possible but also not be in squalid shithole dangerous areas
>>2380007>>2379901>>2379839>here’s how Globohomo is genociding Ukrainians>…by making Russians shoot and bomb them in a war they started>what, Ukraine don’t need to fight they can just surrender lolSub 50-IQ post. Even ghetto niggers and downies are far easier to reason with than western vatniggers
>>2380460All i'm hearing from this is that America gets to use ukies for weapons testing to blow up vatniggers which is a 100% positive result.

Another thread ruined

bestSouth Lake Tahoe. It's the most gorgeous place Ive ever seen. The lake is insane. Awesome outdoor bars. Amazing bike trails and hikes. But it still has a downtown area with a lot of good food and bars. Sitting around at the Hangar bar drinking beer by the fire at night under the stars is a vibe that's hard to match. Jackson Hole Wyoming. The food is shockingly good. Every place in town is like a gourmet cowboy bar. You can do pretty much any outdoor outdoor activity. Whitewater rafting the snake river was one of the best experiences of my life. 3 days in Jackson Hole was not enough. Maui. The best beaches Ive ever seen were in Makena on Maui. We found a condo for $300/night and that was a really good deal. I bought fresh fish a couple times and just grilled out to cut down on the outrageous restaurant bills we racked up. It's insanely expensive and we probably spent 4 grand on a 6 day trip for the 2 of us, but I felt like it was money well spent. WorstPortland Oregon. The memes are true. Portland is a homeless cesspool. There were homeless people camped out front of our Airbnb on a normal suburban street. It was one of the least charming cities Ive ever visited.Atlantic City New Jersey. We parked the car and someone tried to sell us crack within 30 seconds. It's like vegas with none of the attractions but in the worst neighborhood you've ever seen. Fresno California. You'll probably never go there, because why would you? I had to stay there for a conference. Your nightly choice of dining options are Dominoes Pizza, and a 24 hour McDonalds. It actually has worse crime than LA.There is literally NOTHING to do.
>>2377276>this literal tantrum
>>2377276I would've taken a hookah with Ahmed at anytime ngl.
I’ve been to about 80 countries and I don’t think I genuinely hated any. Yeah there are up and downs but I have always found pleasant surprises. Some countries are better than others, for sure. Then there are countries I won’t really come back because I think I did most of it (tiny little ones). Countries I liked the most:- Paraguay: the memories of camping and herding cows with Paraguayan equivalent of gauchos in Chaco when I was kid still haunt me to this day. - Iceland: did a multi-days trek in the middle of nowhere, in snowy volcanic landscape. Nothing is remotely similar. - Extremadura in Spain, Yunnan in China in the early 00s, Chile, Lake Tahoe in Burgerland, some swampy place in Skåne Sweden (pic rel) etc. Too many things to list. My latest trip was a road-trip in Netherlands. I liked it, I learned and saw a lot. I love traveling so much bros.
>>2380495"go to /pol/" is the faggot's redoubt when confronted with opinions they don't like on their safespace blueboard. Kys sexpat manlet.
>>2367779>amazed me by how easy it was when I wasn't wrapped up in my own head.Very inspirational. Thanks
>>2368189>Łódźthis guy is onions. LODZ is dope. Great people, delicious food, cheap. It's not extremely exciting if you want to pack 1000 things in one day. But if you want to spend a week there you'll love it.
>>2365767Best:Rome - So much history and ancient ruins to see there. The city feels like a time capsule and some random back alley pizza shop gave us the best wine I've ever tasted for like 5 euros in a plastic water bottle.Galway, Ireland - An absolutely gorgeous little town with a lot of culture.Toronto - Compared to most cities in the US, it's super clean, quiet and feels safe (at least it did 15 years ago when I visited).Worst:Asbury Park, NJ - I got into a fender bender there and had to stay the night. Was told by the cops to stay away from the motels because there was a good chance I'd find a drug needle in the bed, and then some creepy middle aged dude aggressively hit on me at the hotel they dropped me off at (I was an 18 year old dude). There were absolutely no redeeming qualities about that place for me.Paris - kind of a shithole with pickpockets everywhere who target tourists. The base of the Eiffel Tower is covered in Middle Eastern scammers and people aggressively trying to sell you junk. The architecture in the old city is really nice though.Leeds, UK - was stuck there for six months on study abroad. One of the most boring places I've ever been.
As an urbexer I love Detroit and there is some really good cheap food there, very under rated. London not worst place I've been but it's definitely overrated
>>2367942I could do my job (software sales) from literally anywhere on the planet as long as I’m awake during PST business hoursThe one catch is I can’t stay in a single destination abroad for more than a month because that would create some tax headaches for my company
>BestHong Kong (pre-2019)Same energy as Manhattan except perfectly clean and orderly. The ultra-dense 50-story tower blocks, the food, the massive jungle mountains rising out of the ocean, the incomparable views, the fact that you can take a ferry to Lantau Island and be in a remote tropical paradise in 45 minutes, the unique fusion of Chinese and British culture… what an incredible place. >WorstThe reddit meme answer would be some soulless sunbelt metro like Houston or Dallas, but their biggest crime is bad architecture and dull landscapes. The only actual shithole I’ve ever been to was india, which was so viscerally disgusting that I’ve actually had nightmares about being reincarnated as a pajeet. >OtherLA is getting a lot of hate… I personally think it’s a great city, but you NEED a local to show you around. It’s not the kind of place where you can just get swept up in the energy or stumble across something amazing. Chicago is underrated but it’s gone waaaaaaaaay downhill since the pandemic and george floyd riots.
>>2367942>Live at home>Work whatever job for a year or so>Save everything due to no expenditures>Travel for a year or so>Repeat
>>2382607do you think HK is still worth visiting now? i was thinking about going this year. what has changed since 2019? i understand HK is dropping much of their covid rules for travelers

>>2365767>Fave>Hong KongVery international friendly, safe and an excellent atmosphere. Lovely people, gorgous women and excellent food with beautiful night life with plenty to see.>Malaysia, KLA big city with culture. Lots to see without the mega hustle and bustle of other cities. Nice mix of asians and other ethnicities. Met a nice girl who showed me around.>Bangkok, ThailandNice atmosphere, not too modern. Lots to do in terms of sight seeing and Muay Thai fights. Only off putting thing are the blatant sex pats crawling all over.>Worst>Cape Cod USThings were far too spread out and required a car to get anywhere. >Milan, ItalyVery dull, lots of litter everywhere and felt like a poorly structured city>cotacinabalu, MalaysiaRoads were hazardous for pedestrians and similar issue to the US, requiring cars for any form of exploring. Not bad as such but boring.
ive pretty much always liked the places ive visited so ill just say the worst>brusselscity centre mostly destroyed for capital and eu buildingsmain square and attraction are extrmely tiny and unnoteworthybelgians are in general very rude and very dumb and overcharged for everythingalso plenty of nog and arab areas just by the city centredid like the atom though>lisbonpeople are the rudest and most self important on earththey never work permanently on strike, so often you cant get anywhere or things are closedeverything is filthy and grafitti filled, streets mostly smell of piss, some of vomit too>algarvehate this sort of tourist destinations, everything is made for bongs and the lot and so everything is classless and dirtyjust to add something good, my most recent trips where to São Miguel island at Açores, Crete, and a few extended weekends into spain mostly Castille region and absolutely loved all these
>>2365767My travel habits are niche and i've never been outside the US but I'm planning a trip to France, Holland and Germany this year. Which places in Europe are best for me relative to my best/worst places in the US?favorite>St. Augustine, FLfeels like the closest thing to a European city in the US that i've been to. perfect blend of touristy and authentic, which is what i like because my hobby is visiting roadside attractions but i also appreciate nice places.>Gatlinburg, TNThe roadside mecca and also a great vacation spot with decently priced cabin rentals in some of the most beautiful mountain settings ive ever seen. Again, perfect combo of tourism and atmosphere.>Savannah, GAbest waterfront dining and shopping strip ive ever seen. am i wrong that dusseldorf has something similar but better? because i'm planning on going there on my trip.worst>Lake George, NY / AdirondacksIt's not that bad of a place really, but its the most once-alive but now its dead places ever but you wouldnt know that unless youre me and know about all the awesome roadside attractions and kitsch americana that has one by one disappeared over the years. Like it just feels soulless going there remembering what it once was.>Coney Island, NYsame as above but even worse of an example. look at how amazing it used to be and look at it now. the contrast makes it feel shittier than it really is. and i dont think coney island is as bad as some people say, but at one time it would have been like heaven to me, and now its just an okay tourist beach similar to Wildwood or Ocean City but still way better than Atlantic City>Atlantic City, NJworst place i've ever been to. not just because theres surprisingly little to do, but because its dirty and trashy and full of junkies literally laying on the beach unconscious looking like they died from a heroin od. urban decay, ugly shuttered casino dystopia, feels like an entire abandoned city
>>2382996Idk, I haven’t been since the 2019 protests/law changes and covid. I still talk to one girl who lives there and she says it’s basically just another Chinese city now. Even if that’s the case, the urban design and landscapes are cool enough to warrant a visit imo.
>>2382996>>2383156>what has changed since 2019?Forgot to answer this part. First in 2012, then far more substantially in 2019, the Chinese Communist Party forced the Hong Kong government to rewrite large parts of its legal framework (which was supposed to remain untouched until 2047) to align with Chinese law instead of the old British common law. Among other things, HK defendants can now be tried in Mainland China if the CCP demands it. It also purged the HK legislature of anyone who wasn’t fully sympathetic to the CCP. >I thought they were dropping most of the covid regulations Nope, just the mandatory quarantine period. Masks are still mandatory, even outside, and they still have a digital vaccine passport system in place with no end date in sight.

Maybe the war museum but London's one is better. Women are ugly, no wonder it's a gay capital.>BelfastVirtually fuck all to do apart from the Titanic Museum. Troglodytic people and no charm. If you want historical tourism (on the Troubles) Derry is better.>dishonourable mentions: Barcelona, Paris, Brussels, Cork, The Giant's Causeway
>>2383825I have zero desire to see Africa. Australia the Middle East or Antarctica. I plan my travels to places where people have skin color that falls on the top level of this chart.
A lot of Dublin hate here and I have to say: completely warranted.>>2379327>GrenobleBruh I lived there and I'll defend it but there's no way it's anyone's favourite. There's better in it's viscinity.>>2379820Someone didn't go to Echirolles.
>>2383857> Just like it better than Tokyo, which just seems like a bunch of parts strung together. Osaka felt like a proper city and at that a great one to go around.That’s because Osaka is nothing but a run-down, giant Ikebukuro. Tokyo is much bigger and has lots of different areas with different vibes. Osaka is OK, but a total meme.
Favourite:Vienna>Stunning museums and art galleries, grand architecture, clean, easy to get around, good food, pretty womenPrague>Feels like a fairytale city, very easy to meet people, fantastic beer, relatively cheapHong Kong>Lived there for 6 months and was still finding new stuff to do by the time I left. Literally something for everyoneWorst:Dubai>Completely soulless, felt like a cyberpunk dystopia in the middle of the desert. Burj Khalifa was very impressive thoCanberra>Haven't been for over a decade but I remember it being the most boring place I'd ever been toManila:>Dirty, hot, rundown shithole. Only halfway interesting thing was the Spanish walled city but it takes two hours max to see everything
>>2383957>>2373939>>2382607>>2383006I swear I must have went to a different city. I found Hong Kong to be really boring, pushy and expensive. Honestly really disappointing I ended up going hiking in the subpar mountains after 2 days there because I was just so bored of the city.
NYC is the de facto global capital for a reason. London is an ever-so-slightly less important world city, but’s saturated with this overwhelming feeling of dread and misery that I’ve never experienced anywhere else. Wanted to kms after two weeks there.
>>2365767Best: Thailand, Vietnam, FranceWorst: Egypt, Poland, can't think of a third place I didn't enjoy on some level
Fav:>Shiraz, best city in Iran >DengFeng Shaolin temple in China>Manila, just enjoyed being a stupid backpackerWorst:>Copenhagen, and especially freetown christiania>Tunis>Paris
>>2384045Egypt is such a fucking shithole
Best>Lucerne, Switzerland.Fucking awesome place, and a great middle ground between alpine city and country. Everything is gorgeous and the kapellbrucke is stellar, but the biggest problem is that everything is fucking expensive as shit, making you feel like a pauper next to all the wealth. My favorite place in the whole world.>Bend, Oregon. It's in a very tenuous place as people are beginning to discover it en-masse, but it's a pleasure to visit. Lots of places to go outdoors, lively town, and a young populace. Again, the problem is that granolas and remote techfags are flocking to it, so the future doesn't look so good. Also has the last Blockbuster in the world, which is neat.>Molde, Norway. I'm a bit biased because I have family here, but it's a cute town on the waterfront with lots of verticality. Easy to get to the countryside, and the atlantic road isn't far. Just a very pleasant place that follows the beat of its own drum. I'd visit another larger town as a tourist, however.Turns out my favorite places are all mountainous and expensive. Go figure.Worst>San Francisco, CaliforniaThe biggest tumor of a city I can think of. This is what happens when you have an idyllic region grow for too long, it begins to rot from the inside out. Worse yet, the tumor has metastasized and is starting to infect surrounding regions as well. Fuck this place.>Milan, ItalyDirty, expensive, and a worse italian version of Paris. Hosts a bunch of lazy migrants and faux posh italians who think they're above everyone else. The only nice parts are the duomo and last supper mural, and you can see those within a day. Go to Como or Lugano instead, those are FAR superior to this shithole.>Aberdeen, WashingtonNo wonder Kurt sang into his shotgun, I would want to die if I had to live in this depressing hellhole too. So desolate and dreary on this part of the coast, and there's plenty of other A-tier places you can go instead if you want to see PNW nature.
>>2384045why Poland? I mean I can understand Egypt, but how come Poland was so bad to you?
>>2384010That's not specific to London, the entire UK has visibly been death spiraling for the past 12 years if not longer. There is absolutely no optimism left anywhere in this country, that's why Brexit was such a big deal, for many it was their best chance at a future to look forward to with all the promises being made about it. London in particular is largely filled up with people who are honestly just struggling to survive on hopelessly stagnant wages in an extremely expensive city with massive inflation, so you're not the only one wanting to kill themselves for being their, there's just fuck all for work outside of London so it's still one's best chance sadly.
Favourite>Antibes, South FranceLoved the whole of the south of France, gave me serious Vice City vibes>Moscow, RussiaMassively underrated, really comfy city and you'd be amazed at how plesent it is experiencing a city where most shops and cafes are still independently owned. It's like a European city that hasn't been taken over by yankoid brands, very based.>Vienna, AustriaVery artistic city, I really like modern art and the old royal stables got converted into a Mecca for modern and alternative art. A lot more pretentious than German cities, but it does live up to it Hated>Venice, ItalySmelt like shit in the summer because the canals are actually open sewers, locals are twats who live in a tourist spot just to complain about it>Amsterdam, HollandThe town itself is small and nice, but Jesus Christ what a fucking meme of a place. The city attracts "lmao weed and hookers!" tourists and the city knows it and everything panders to actual morons.>Prague, CzechiaTourist trap city centre that seems to appeal to people who like witches and shit? Outside of that the local culture seems to be just based around bitching about the Prague Spring in the 1960s, I imagine most butthurt belt states are the same and have no personality outside of crying about communism despite it being over for 30 years.
>>2384615San Francisco gets a lot of hate because of the homeless shit. but there are some really awesome and unique things to see in san fran. Biking around angel island, alcatraz, Muir Woods, Fort Funsten, The Golden Gate Bridge, The Presidio Park, Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Park, Muir Beach, Sausalito, Tenesee Valley, Mount Tam, etc. There is an awesome brewery scene, a bunch of good live music venues, great asian food, crazy festivals. I dont know how people have a bad time in SF. Just don't leave anything in your car and stay away from the mission district where the homeless people congregate and you'll enjoy it a lot more.
>>2384689>Muir Woods, Fort Funsten, The Golden Gate Bridge, The Presidio Park, Fisherman's Wharf, Boring ass shit, all of it. Maybe if you were driving by it would be worth stopping but even then maybe not. Crowded, expensive, tourist bullshit have fun sitting in traffic all day for a 10 minute experience
bestTbilisi, Georgia. Good vibes, interesting mix of architecture, good history, cheap, nice people. not much else to say really.Palermo, Italy. It's a fucking mental place that I loved despite getting the worse food poisoining of my life from their disgusting spleen sandwiches.Berat, Albania. I did a lot of cocaine and fucked a girl with massive tits here. Nice historic centre to it too.WorstDublin, Ireland. Shitter version of Manchester only retardedly expensive for such a shit place.Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Yeah this place is a dump where the only things to see are heartbreaking memorials to the time Cambodia had the worst government of all time.Barcelona, Spain. I have been an idiot in many countries across this wide world of ours, and have never been the victim of crime. I have been to Barcelona twice and have been a victim of crime twice there, despite being stone cold sober both times.
>>2384689Most homeless people congregate in the Ternderloin, not the Mission. The Mission is literal street markets and Honduran drug dealers.
>>2384689The problem is that San Francisco is ground zero for all the bullshit happening on the west coast and it keeps getting worse because their voting base is fucking delusional techtroons that basically want gay anarcho-communism for all. There are a lot of beautiful places in California, but they're all at risk of being polluted with stupid bullshit that nobody would be better off with. California is literally paradise lost, too bountiful for its own good.>>2383039Kek, glad you agree that NE yanks are fucking gross. But you need perspective, go to europe and see what you think. It will definitely change your mind about a lot of things that you're used to in the States.>>2382607LA gets all the hate it deserves. Fucking plastic city where everyone goes to (attempt to) live out their delusional dreams of being a movie star or someone important. You'll never make it unless you're a 10/10 thot or gigachad.
Worst>YoungstownGenuine hellhole. Nothing going on, extensive urban decay, the most obvious gangsterism I have ever seen. The majority of the younger men were clearly wearing colors.>West BaltimoreSaw a high school kid doing a really awful job of selling drugs on the sidewalk in broad daylight with people around and then a funeral procession immediately after.>AmsterdamEverything there is to hate about Europe dialed up and concentrated. Shamelessly sleazy as well.>Olimpos, TurkeyA white sand beach, mountains, nice forest, ancient ruins, a natural fire from straight out of the ground, and not completely swamped, what's not to like?>Roskilde, DKColonial Williamsburg but with vikings. Had an awesome time there as a 10 year old boy>Utah in generalBeautiful
Southern California in general is a really nice place to live (except LA proper obviously) but it's not great for tourists, unless you're there for outdoors stuff like surfing or mountain biking.
>>2384720I thought Palermo was one of the bottom tier places I went in Italy. Still better than Naples and Trapani though. Ended up liking Palermo because met some tight Sicilian bros at a punk bar there who took me to a street party with 1euro beers in an alley where everyone was partying on like a Thursday night. One of my best evenings.
>>2367779expected a coomer story, left feeling inspired. 10/10.
>>2378094Clubs in Vegas suck ass. They're nothing but long lines to sober up in while you wait to pay $19 for a bud light or $30 for a rebull and vodka.But I guess if you want to get shot down by gold diggers and "dance" around so-cal douche bags you do you.
>>2384913Oh yeah I feel like Palermo's objectively a dump and there are easily far better places in Italy, but it's still one of my favourite cities. I went to a bar and met some locals, and Palermo lose in the Serie B playoff final due to very obvious cheating on the part of the other team. The pure, unbridled and utterly infectious southern Italian anger on display (mixed with my own English "wah th'fuck are these cunts dooin?!") was something to behold, it was fucking great.
>>2384886You really need a local to show you the good shit in socal. The tourists all end up doing the wrong shit. Hollywood is a dump. Venice beach is a shithole. The tour busses all go to the La Brea Tar Pits. Why the fuck would you go to a tar pit? Disneyland is ok, but it gets too fucking crowded and if you don't get a fast pass, you end up riding 4 rides in 12 hours. Then you end up on a tour bus driving around Beverly Hills looking at "celebrity houses". It's a lame vacation that costs way too much.The best California trip you can do is to go stay in Yosemite National Park in June when the waterfalls are going off. All the good beaches are between Huntington Beach in Orange County and La Jolla in San Diego. The best month for the beaches is September after the Mexicans are back in Riverside and LA.
>>2365767BestLisbon- Lots to see and do, great food and drink with lots of live music bars and restaurants, near to some great side trips like Sintra and the best sunset at Cabo da RocaRome- Big fan of history and churches so this is a no brainerPhuket- Whilst alot of it is a tourist trap it does have nice beaches, islands, and very fun nightlifeWorstBratislava- Very boring and the 'old' architecture is poorly done post WW2 reconstructionUman- Went as a stop in-between Kiev and Odessa. Nice park but mostly a Jewish shanty town (centre of hassidic Jews in Europe, Israeli and US currency accepted alongside Hyrvnia lol)Exeter- Ended up on a roadtrip round the west of England in summer 2021, represents the worst part of travelling in UK as it's boring and expensive.
Why does Barcelona have such a>bad reputation on /trv/So many of these posts mention /trv/ hates it but they all like it? I admit I went there this past summer and I enjoyed it as well and I'm not even much of a partier.
>>2383039>Lake George, NY / AdirondacksI can't speak to Lake George, but I did a weekend backpacking trip out of Lake Placid and it gave me a good impression. I didn't spend much time in the town proper, but there are still some of the old Olympic buildings which would've been neat to check out. The High Peaks area is quite nice, if a bit crowded
>>2379327>Least favorite>Provincetownthat's pretty homophobic of you, anon
>>2374758>>2374814I think it's also a question of doing your research. i had a place by the nachtmarket, "lots of history" they said, and it turns out it's just some concrete shithole. I walk the wrong way for 5 minutes, and I'm in some dystopian commie-block dead neighbourhood where nothing moves.> museumsare pretty boring and repetitive, once you visit two you've really seen them all.I thought Vienna was really dull aside from one or two niche spots. The 20th century architecture is exceptionally soulless by European standards. I would maybe give it a go a second time and come with a bigger wallet if someone encouraged me but first time just wasn't it, compared to the SOVL in Budapest, Kraków, or even Ljubljana.
>>2377605This, it's exactly the first impression anyone gets. I really don't get it.
>>2385017As someone that's spent the past five summers in Lake George, you're really not missing out on much. The actual town is just filled with hotels, subpar restaurants, and novelty shops created to exploit middle-class families from downstate or French Canada. About it. It's the definition of a tourist town, honestly. The surrounding towns are idyllic suburbs with not much to do, but the influx of tourists/travelers during the summer can make traffic hectic. Not too great.
>>2384697You have to go to SF in the off-season. Muir Woods is never crowded because they implemented a reservation system. It's one of the most beautiful parks in the US. If you're bored in Muir Woods, that's on you. We hiked up the mountain along a creek under giant redwood trees and saw like 4 waterfalls along the way. We never passed another person on the Bootjack trail in October.
>>2385227What's the off-season? >Winter when it's cool and foggy>Spring when it's cool and foggy>Summer when it's cool and foggy>Fall when it's cool and foggy
>>2385488Fall is amazing on the Marin County side north of the city where Muir Woods is. September and October are the two best months, but the summer is great too. I lived in Sausalito for a year.
>>2365767>Best>1. The French countrysideI've never felt more European than I did driving around all the small towns and through the incredibly scenery all over the country. I did a whole circle and the northern and eastern part are probably my favorites. The second you get to a big city it's like waking up from a dream, unfortunately.>2. Seoul, SKGreat city with tons of history. Interesting contrast between old and new.>3. Coast of CaliforniaAgain if you discount the cities, which are both awful (LA and SF), it's almost unbelievably beautiful. Yosemite is probably the highlight but the whole place is just great.>Worst>1. Madrid, SpainAwful city. Never felt more unsafe anywhere in Europe. Literally caught a guy trying to steal from my backpack. Not much to see or do, annoying people trying to get you into their restaurants and the food was surprisingly bad. The whole siesta thing is strange to put it mildly, makes for an awkward traveling experience.>2. Miami, FloridaRundown shithole that looks like it hasn't been touched since 1996. No glamour about anything there. Dirty streets, annoying people. It's completely soulless.>3. Beijing, ChinaLiveleak tells you the story
>>2379881Themepark Amsterdam is actually what Dutch locals also call it. The city has changed immensely in the last fifteen years.
>>2385015It has a serious problem with petty crime and if you don’t keep your wits about you or don’t take sensible precautions you’re very likely to have your pockets picked or be mugged. If this doesn’t happen to you you’ll love Barca; if it happens to you you’ll hate it. If you are from a fancy place with no real street crime you might find having to think about muggers at all upsetting. My bro loved out there for a while under Erasmus. Everyone eventually got crimed. He ended up having a neck pouch thing he kept actual valuables in, and carried around a sacrificial wallet with only €20 in it which was no great loss when it inevitably was taken from him. You can buy boxer shorts with concealed pockets which were also popular.
>>2365767Gotta say: Never visited Bangladesh , but as anonii suggested here: Dhaka - after visiting it via google maps (check the riverside out, it's magnificent) - really looks like a shithole of biblical proportions.
>>2385850When I was in the Navy, I had a roommate that was originally from Bangladesh. On my naivety, I told him that I wanted to visit one day. He looked me straight in the eye and told me there's a reason he left and isn't going back. Even its natives hate the place for being so ass-backwards and dirty
>>2375751not them but i flew in there and took a bus the same evening quite late so i had a few hours to eat and exploredidn't see much seemed like a very empty place with nothing to do
Paris>had a great experience, ate really good food (one place there was not another foreigner besides me and my gf), saw great art, really liked the architecture and all kinds of different districtsPoland in general>very very nice country to visit, cheap, great food, varied cities and all sorts of cool stuff to catchCordoba>dislikedDublin>utter shitholeGranada>felt too much like a soulless tourist trap, altho I liked Alhambra and had a nice little hike up to nearby hill overlooking the city with mostly locals drinking beer up thereStuttgart>most boring city I've ever been to. nothing to hate, just boring.
>>2386014I'd also add Milan as my favourite. Great city to live in, especially if you got the cash. So many hot girls, great museums and food. Alps are so close with Lago Maggiore and the rest. Also easy to grab a train to Bergamo et al. Only part I really hate is how they let all sorts of scum shit up the beautiful entrance of Milano Centrale, probably the most beautiful train station I've ever been to. I used to be in Milan often and I always hated how much rubbish was there. But trains stations in Italy are pretty much always shitholes in major cities.
>>2373939lol that portrayal of Berlin makes me wanna go now.
If you asked me tomorrow I'd probably have a different answer, but off the top of my headBestHanoi - great city and a great base for smaller trips to other great places in north VietnamKyoto - if it weren't for all the tourists I'd be making strong plans to move here. Very pleasant small city.Seoul - really fun place to visit, wish I had have studied there for a semester when I was young, great scene for uni aged people.Worst - can't say I've hated anywhere I've been but in terms of least likely to recommend or give a big conditional comment onHue - Make it a day trip, don't book three nights like I didSaigon - filthy degenerate city with little going for it compared to other destinations in VietnamTokyo - great city but for the love of fuck please stop building it up in your head to be god's own kingdom - its great but not that great
>>2367750Going to Colchester is like a bong travelling to a middling surbaban mall in a flyover state for a holiday. I cannot fathom why you would want to visit except for work.
>>23846792008 bust rekt the UK and it's never recovered from it. To make matters worse, this coincided with extraordinary levels of societal changes leaving a very divided people. The Labour Govt fucked things up systemically, then the Tories did nothing but continued the rot. The whole economy is built on the Ponzi property market and muh financial services. 2 decades since the crash, the loss of wealth and earning power is only just becoming apparent. Its grim in the UK atm unfortunately.
>>2385787I’m from the UK but Barcelona has become a home away from home, my girlfriend lives there and I’m planning on moving there soon. I’ve spent a generous amount of time there, clubbing, out drinking late on my own etc and I’ve never been a victim of crime. That being said, I’m ACUTELY aware of where this crime occurs, who and what to look out for and directly how to avoid it. The problem is as follows. Moroccans and Africans flood the city illegally. Thousands of unsuspecting tourists on a daily basis. Very old winding streets that are endlessly confusing, dark and unmonitored by CCTV etc. Super left wing local government and a jaded police force who have stopped caring about it. The dead centre of Barcelona, La Rambla and adjacent areas like El Born and El Raval are most dangerous. I fucking love El Born, but it’s somewhere I always make sure I have my wits about me at night. A few weeks ago I was stumbling back from a bar when the World Cup was on. Must have been 1am. Clearly Moroccan looking young guy, fake Gucci bag and all the works, is scoping me out from his electric scooter, going slowly staring at me and looking around. I stop right in front of him, light a cigarette and show zero intimidation. I see a big group of Uber eats cyclists around the corner so I shift over to them quickly and continue to smoke. I saw him circling the area maybe 5 times after that, to which he then zipped off 5 minutes or so later.
>>2385866It’s over 100 million people living in a country the size of Illinois

>>2365767My experience is not so wide as some anonii here , but here's mine:Best: >Budapestdue to shitty government and inflation, really cheap local restaurants and hotels for other europeans. Nice club scene. Clean enough. Nice views, places to see. >BerlinOutstanding nightclubs, some say best in Europe, art, (Turkish kebabs...), culture, liked the overall feel.> RomeWalking on history. Been there few times, still lots to see. Cheap af quality red wine. Art, culture etc. Favourable Mentions: >Heidelberg, germanywhat a nice town between mountains, university town, not too big, nightlife and things to do for a couple days>Turku, FinlandThe town is not big or extremely special, university town and pretty ok nightlife, very safe (as is all Finland). However, you can enter the archipelago from there and it's unique in all of europe or even the world. Some love it to bits, some are not that particular. There are cabins for rent and probably saunas in nearly all habitable islands.Least recommended - tier (don't actually hate these but wouldnt go again unless necessary):>TunisWell, went there before the Arab Spring and I'm fairly certain it's even shittier now.>Essen, GermanyYou can go there and see a mine. Concrete, not much to do. It's surrounded by nicer places to live probably, but its not for just visiting as a tourist. >Oulu, FinlandNot much to see, despite being so far upnorth. It's a staging area for trips further north or the islands, but never clicked with the place.>ReykjavikThe town itself is pretty small and not much to do unless you love whale watching, bathing and seeing the penis museum (OP?). However, Iceland itself is cool in many of the word's meanings.>San Diego, californiaDidn't love the place ,spent a few days, the city itself needs someone to guide you if you want to find anything worthy of seeing.Still, liked the aircraft carrier - much freedoms for a small fee. Perhaps a nice place to live, however.
>>2367809Paris has good cuisine if you can afford ~30 plus gastronomic meals, don't even think about dinner.As for gypsies they just get released even if they get arrested as they pretend to be minors or whatnot so cops have stopped bothering.Still makes Pari a shithole obviously.
>>2383857Belfast was infinitely the most fun nightlife scene on that island you autist.
>>2384958I had the same thing happen in Palermo and it was it's saving grace. Met some cool mother fuckers at a punk bar and they took me to an illegal street party with 1euro beers. Fun fucking night.
>>2386908>goodPortland>badSeattleFucking how, they're both shit holes filled with homeless fentanyl addicts. Only reason Portland is better than Seattle is because traffic isn't half as fucked because everything isn't on an island.
>>2387370People in Oregon are nicer than in Washington
>>2387370Portland has some redeeming qualities but it IS hard to look past the homelessness
>>2382597>I could do my job (software sales) from literally anywhere on the planetyeah, so you are rich, like the anon makes the point that you must be in order to do that kind of shit
>>2377244Only a Milanese nigger could write this post. Milan is a dump, Paris is miles better and your usual "but at least we aren't Southern Italy" excuse for being a shithole won't work here.
>>2385488“Fall” is when summer finally arrives in San Francisco; the warmest and sunniest month is usually September, sometimes extending into early October.
>>2388794Wdym? I've been in and out of Milan at least twenty odd times in the last few years, what is it you don't like about it? Centrale? I'm not them, I like both cities and thought that whatever is said on 4chan about Paris was either overblown or made up.
Have none of you been to South or Centeral America? Or do those countries just not make it into the best or worst categories?

>FavoritesGeneva, Switzerland. Gorgeous city, prestine nature surrounding and even in the suburbs there are really cool ravines and nature spots. Terrible bang for buck though. Even a basic lunch 10 years ago cost as much as a combo meal today.Edinburgh, Scotland. Even when the weather sucks its just a very uniquely fun city. Really well planned out for active types and great mix of restaurants and architecture.>WorstLas Vegas, Nevada, USA. Speaking of terrible bang for buck, Vegas is almost as bad as Switzerland. Except here you are constantly harassed by lepers, scamming broads and nogs who come from L.A. for a weekend to be complete fucking mongs at the casino. That also doesn't include the scamming hotel staff and the annoying loud families that plague every part of the city. Fuck that entire shithole.New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Possibly the most unsafe city in America. Even Chicago felt like Tokyo levels of safe compared to the nightmare of New Orleans. However outside of being followed by a pickpocket/mugger I still didn't have as many problems here as I did in Vegas. The food is also far superior as is the local music scene.Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Cold boring shithole who's only benefit is being within 2 hours of prestine nature as long as you're there in off season before the Chinese tourists plague the area. The city itself is either a soulless husk akin to Buffalo, NY or a long strip of woke socjus businesses with terrible food and service. I hear Edmonton is leagues worse so thankfully I've never been yet and hopefully will never end up there.

An absolute must-visit if you’re going to SpainHonorable mention>Occitania and the AlpsWorst>DubaiOnly a 2 day stay(business) but this shithole is the most soulless place I’ve ever been. We gave a bunch of camel herders almost unlimited money for living ontop of black liquid, and guess what they build? Just a bunch of tall boxy glass buildings.>Marrakesh, MorrocoAbsolute shithole. Filthy, disgusting, full of annoying touts, and it’s one of the least safe places I’ve ever been, altho I’ve never been to a US city yet. I should have figured out why Morrocan rapefugees are among the most detested ones on 4chan.This is also the only place a solo female traveling friend of mine(5’3 100lbs blonde Swede) had any problems, being groped repeatedly by locals, stalked to her hotel room and even almost kidnapped into a trafficking ring, and she had no problem in places like India. It became a valuable life lesson for her about Nafris.>Cairo, EgyptLike Marrakesh, but even worse. This place may put Indian cities to shame in filthyness, but atleast most Indians won’t rob you unlike here. Only place where I have been pickpocketed TWICE. Thankfully it was cheap burner wallets with like $5 in them due to recommendations by locals, but that’s quite telling of how bad it is there.Touts here will follow you until you pay them to fuck off.Also I had to bribe the subhuman power tripping “customs” personnel at the airport to release my bag for having a camera.Atleast I made some good local friends here unlike in MorrocoI’ve become incredibly racist towards arabs and nafris as you can see.

Loved the views, amazing hikes, beaches, islands, hills, culture, shopping, amazing food, party scene, booming craft beer scene, chill atmospheres and all in such a close vicinity with amazing accessibility. The hike with the many waterfalls was a highlight, did it with just half a water bottle, a huge hangover and 3 hours of sleep, but loved it so much.>Istanbul:Huge city, so much variety in things to see and do. Cultural variety as well. Mosques just a few blocks away from the best Electronic music clubs you can imagine. One of my fav clubs worldwide was very close to Taksim. Turkish food is absolutely top tier, lots of culture and the friendliest people you can imagine. Extremely hectic traffic though, but I didnt mind it that much.>Rome:Really hard to choose between Rome and other Italian cities, but how can I choose against a full on open air museum? Great food, friendly people, so much to do and see.

Fake and hot. Felt like a ghost town when I visited. Big buildings and huge malls with everything aimed at people who like burning money. Extremely ugly city.>ParisIts been a good time since I've been here, but if it wasn't the most chaotic day ever in my life. Many homeless people, druggies and retards just fighting, destroying stuff and creating hassles out of nothing.>Hoi AnDefinitely not as bad as Paris and Dubai. I usually don't really dislike stuff, but I was disappointed when I got here. The bridge is beautiful at night, I had some great craft beer here andgood food, but everything else is just a tourist trap. The bars are shit, the vendors are annoying and the city is ugly, outside of the bridge
>>2365767Best>Edinburgh: beautiful architecture, lovely people. I actually lived here for a while not just visited and loved it. The food is not great but also not as bad as people say.>Madrid: Incredible food, laid back and cool atmosphere, people out partying any day of the week, clean streets and top tier museums. Not even half as popular as Barcelona so it was hard to run into tourist traps or crowded spots>Annecy: I've been to many quaint little towns in France, some were glorified muslim ghettoes and some were hidden jewels, could've picked another town but I remember having a great stay hereWorst:>NYC: Loud, crowded, filthy and populated with absolute scum. A shrine to tacky consumerism. I visited like 15 years ago though and people say it's even worse now.>Marrakech: The postcards make it look like this beautiful exotic place but aside from a couple of spots it was a dirty shithole, with rubbish littered everywhere and scammers trying to get you constantly. The food was also shit and the locals were incredibly rude.>Geneva and Switzerland in general: The best skiing spots I've ever been to, but a lot of the smaller towns I got to visit were boring and grey. Swiss people are generally autistic and would throw a fit if you even dared flush your toilet after 10 pm. Geneva is apparently a very wealthy place but it's very underwhelming and ugly. Everything is expensive and food is meh tier.
>>2391688> altho I’ve never been to a US city yet.top bantz
>>2391737Nobody has complained about the Museums. Maybe take a read at the reasons people have actually given for not liking it? City is a fucking cesspit full of the worst kinds of people from head to toe. Literally a city of dickheads crammed into a containment zone that think they live in the best city in the world because there’s a black owned book sale every Sunday and it’s got a financial district kek
>>2365767>>2365767>Worst >PhiladelphiaHAHAHA coward. I visited Philadelphia and fucking loved it. Yes, there are men on this earth who love history and danger and colonial beauty all at once. I came for the history and the cobbled streets and stayed for the dangerous ghettos and drug zombies.I AM A MODERN JOSEPH CONRAD. Hey, pussy: you're too afraid to venture into the Congo even though the rewards are great? If you are too pussy to venture into a Philly ghetto you're not an explorer. I FUCKING explore. Sick and tired of people being too pussy to do so. And I have stories to tell that few Danes do. Oh, and Philadelphia is really fucking safe in the normal areas and I know you were too pussy to see Kensington or the Northern Sectors. Little baby is scared to undergo feats of courage?
>>2391998>>2391688>DubaiHow bad can it be? How can other metropolitan cities full of boxy skyscrapers like Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong be so acclaimed, while Dubai constantly gets shat on?
>>2392255There is nothing to explore or find in the ghetto unless you like severely overweight nigger pussy.
>>2392255>>2392255You are an incel too scared to leave mommy's basement
>>2392424It's amazingly bad. Made all the worse for its modern miracles of engineering being wasted on a sweltering shithole full of literal slavekeepers and their hordes of third world and African vermin.It's so hot in Dubai that you will die of heatstroke if you stand outside for 30 minutes, some times of the year. The metal and concrete and asphalt retain the heat and blast it out all night long also, so it barely cools down at all. Imagine walking outside at 2am and feeling heat radiating at you from below and all sides since everything was baking all day.There is no escape except in massive air conditioned areas which are plentiful, but also completely fake and also packed with confused looking displaced brownoids trying to spend their meager paycheck.
>>2392434>>2392435Lol I love this seethe. You're the type of "tourists' who wouldn't go deep into the jungle or hike in grizzly territory. You have no sense of duty. No sense of courage. Cry harder just because you're afraid of black ghettos doesn't mean everybody is. Does courage mean nothing to you?I regale people with my stories of philly hoods and ghettos. You know how much pussy that gets me in Aarhus? Women like courageous men, not cowards.
Favourite: Vancouver, friendly people, beautiful nature on your doorstepMalta, friendly people, cheap, tons of history Budapest, cheap, old and beautiful.Honorable mention, Sri Lanka. Like india, but less hectic. Lviv; cheap and beautiful (pre war anyway)Worst: Morocco, Morocco, Morocco.Beautiful country, shame about the people. They're thieves, scammers and just general bastards. I would never recommend coming here without having that in mind. The only country I've been to where i had to save a dog from being stoned to death.
>>2392147>I don't like London because I'm a racistTravelling must be such a harrowing experience for you, going to all these places that have people who don't look or act like you
>>2392552I’d rather visit Ghana or India than London
>>2392573That's a good point . Civilized places like India and Ghana don't worship criminals of color they exterminate them or send them to Paris, London or NYC
>>2392626>>2392573Don't let them catch you bumming each other in India or Ghana though
>>2367779Unironically good advice
>>2392643You incel cumbrains really go to London just to tongue some Arabs bunghole?
Honeslty if the worst place you've ever been to is an european capital you are a really sheltered individual
>>2365767Favorite:>NiceThe most beautiful place that I have visited.Very clean with nice weather. I like the stores and local markets, beaches, promenades and marina. I have seen places with more impressive architecture, but the combination of Nica's specific vibe, location and beautiful weather just does it for me.>MetzOnce again, it's just about the feeling. For some reason I like the local cathedral very much. Parks are beautiful and the river that flows through the city makes great views combined with old bridges.>DubrovnikPearl of the Adriatic, it is one of the most beautiful cities and it also functions as a whole perfectly. Worst>Serbia in generalAwful state of the streets, gas stations full of shady people and criminals. A place stuck in the late 80s. >SofiaGray, depressing, and full of scammers. >LjubljanaShameful main bus station, in the city everything is closed past a certain hour.
>>2365767Favorites:Firenze - visited in winter, outside main tourist season. The cathedral is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, and the Uffizi galleries were magnificent. Raasay - small island just off the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Very nice if you didn't bring your own vehicle, as it is small enough that you can explore on foot - the backdrop, across a narrow sea, is the Isle of Skye. Breathtakingly beautiful, and extremely nice and hospitable people, being a tiny island of 40 permanent residents or so. Bath in England. Magnificently beautiful, and I honestly had no idea the English could pull something like that off. Placed near the Cotswolds which is also a wonderful bit of nature for hiking and sightseeing.Worst: Munich. combines everything that is bad about Germany. Overpriced, boring, ugly, and the people are all autists who think they are better than you because they used their autism to work in a bank and make a lot of money.Krakow: Absolutely insane seeing street vendors in clown outfits do a little hop and dance to advertise tours to FUCKING AUSCHWITZ. Absolutely insane that lads on tour go there to get pissed, see Auschwitz, and then get pissed again. Least favorite part of Poland. I much prefer their smaller cities, which are wonderful.London. It just fucking sucks. Most of it is ugly by now, most of it is expensive because it has become a favorite of the most gaudy and tasteless rich internationals, and all the pretty little places, like parks in the center of housing blocks are locked up to prevent them from being spoiled by filthy non-residents. There is not a single bench in Belgravia because they hate you loitering without spending money in a cafe. Inhospitable town unless you have oil and oligarch levels of wealth.
>>2392735>I honestly had no idea the English could pull something like that off.The bath was built by the Romans. And the church was built by the French.
>>2392735I lived in Bath for almost a year. It is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The nearby country side is worth exploring as well. I liked Krakow, but the middle of the city center is quite bad. They got a nice Cathedral. Not far off there is Wroclaw and Katowice, I liked them both better.
>>2392773Bath is not just the Roman baths. The entire city is covered in Georgian architecture and elaborate parks. There's a very specific stone they only quarry there and it's probably one of the best stones for buildings in terms of aesthetics. It's a very, very rich town and it shows the very best of Britain. You can forget you live in England when you are in Bath. Just a stunning place. I worked there for a hostel for a year, the place is pure soul, also I met so many cool people there. BTW - you can get a resident card and enter the bath's for free. They're not too picky about proof of residence, you could literally book a hostel weeks before, have a letter mailed there and use that as a reference. It also works for other attractions and lasts 3 years. If you can be bothered with getting a bicycle, go down the canals to Dundas Aqueduct or cycle thru the mountain in what used to be the railway cutting thru Bath Hills - in fact I recommend hiking around the town on the same hills as you get great views. I detest most things about Britain, the weather, most of the people, ugly architecture, but Bath is an absolute pearl, it's undeniably one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.Somerset is the best place in England. Compared to other big cities Bristol isn't half bad, although I could never live there.
>>2392465When people say Vancouver is friendly I want to know what alternate reality they live in. Been here since high school, and the people are just lizards. I remember a student had a stroke in class, no one even reacted a fly could land on their eyes, and even the teacher that helped no emotion. Robot city.
>>2392788>You can forget you live in England when you are in Bath.It's not full of pakis?
>>2392911I think you underestimate just how shit most places are, in london the schoolkids enjoy stabbing eachother for instance. I live in the Midlands in the UK, come to Birmingham for a weekend and tell me Vancouver isn't a fucking paradise in comparison. Granted i was only there for a week, but it just seemed like a lovely place. Much nicer than the souless grey mass that is Toronto.
>>2392940Oh, you just visited for a week. Thing is about Canadians is that they are superficial, how they act does not reflect how they think at all. Too many times I have gotten people that are all smiles to my face, and then try to fuck you over for any reason they can. It makes it very difficult to trust anyone here.Also just going to class last year I saw shit like homeless scraping off all their leg tissue to the bone, dead bodies from drug overdoses, saw one die of an overdose from outside my college while I was studying. Third world slum in a nice geographical location.
>>2384679Speak for yourself regarding optimism, faggot.
>>2393009Oh really? Well ignorance is bliss.
>>2392936You have some immigration, but it's mostly Eastern Europeans and well educated people. So not really. It's mostly white British who live there. It's not far off from what people idealize as rural Britain. If the English weather wasn't so bad and they had good cuisine, like French or Italians, I'd probably move there when I get older. Really love the rolling hills, meadows, all the pubs, local cider and canals and the river Avon near and round Bath. If you ever go, go during May - August. When I lived there I got the best amount of sunlight mid May till late June. Summer is pretty good for UK, but still not as great as anything on the continent.Bath bun is also worth trying out, my favourite dessert from UK, even better than crumpets imho. Tea, clotted cream and jam is GOAT tier with it.
>bestTangier, absolutely magnificient beach side, food is incredibly good and cheap (if you don't go around the tourist spots but even then), the girls are cute, and you basically have the best beaches around town, and a taxi can get you there for around 5USD. You can also use taxis to go wherever you want, inside the city, for a dollar at most. it's fucking ridiculous. Taipei, beautiful, modern, clean and calm, with a rural touch to it with lots of hiking trails around townNew York City, great food and lots of stuff to do>worstFuck Cairo, fuck egypt and fuck the egyptians, there is a reason why gypsies get their name from themParis has all the downsides of New York City and only a few of its upsides, it's basically a shitty subset of world class cities. People are rude, and extremely insecure, trying to shit on you at every turn, even the ones that pretend to be your friends. I know you think you can apply all of this to NYC, but trust me, they're on another level.Los Angeles is an urban nightmare, gigantic streets made for cars so you can't really go from one neighborhood to another without one (it would be unsafe anyway), and the only people that seem to actually have fun there probably earn around my early salary monthly. Whatever soul was depicted in movies like the Big Lebowski is completely gone. The poor people are just hustling fiends and the rich ones are going to their vegan restaurant so they can stuff their faces with kale and papaya chutney.

>>2368097Good post anon. >Athens I visited Athens when I was a kid and I'd love to go back with my wife when we get a chance. >London Yup. It's fucked now. I was born here 51 years ago and while it was never perfect, the soul has been knocked out of it. Not to get all /pol/ but when the majority of citizens of a place weren't born there, it's going to go to shit.
>>2368722Shit post. Brussels is great, especially the suburbs.m – St Giles, Uccle etc

Fav>Tbilisi: It's great. Lots of fun stuff to do, friendly people. Although I hear it's full of Russians now>Copenhagen: Cool, clean, city. Easily walkable. Surprisingly great good/drinks>Arkhangelsk: Russian cities in general are either hospitable but run down or nice looking but full of assholes. This city actually has nice people with plenty of cool stuff to see. Honorable Mention:>Ulaanbaatar: Absolute shithole, but still worth a visit. Very uniqueWorst:>Dusseldorf: Dreary, sad excuse of a city.>Maastricht: "Ca va?" "Need coke???" Hope you enjoy getting harassed by drug dealers every day. >Yerevan: 40C in the summer, -30 and polluted in the winter. Conservative, full of "Russian hospitality", and run down. Rough language barrier if you don't speak Armenian /Russian well. Met some really nice people there though.
>>2367742St Augustine is a hidden gem. Seconded this.
Best:Mainland Mexico. Not too many tourists, friendly folk, excellent bus system. Good surf trip or highland cities. El Salvador honorable mention Central California. SF is s real city, Monterey peninsula is primo, Tahoe and Big Sur and Yosemite. Expensive.Montreal. Went here for a long weekend in high summer with perfect weather. Rafted on St. Lawrence, stroll to top of Mt. Real, drinks in city. Solid 7s everywhere.Bonus: Teton Range. Jackson Hole has epic terrain, Targhee has epic snow. Expensive.Worst:Manhattan. Loud, smelly, ugly, expensive. I don't care about culture.Barcelona. Loud and smelly. I don't care about culture.Nicaragua. The surf is weak and the spots are too tide sensitive and therefore packed. Like 90 minute tide windows, incoming tide only. A swell thar will be well overhead in Mexico will be chest high. Too many Brazilians.
Best>KenyaWent to Amboseli, beautiful national park with a great view of the Kilimanjaro. Had a comfortable stay in the Serena lodge with cute monkeys roaming the grounds. Nairobi is fine but I didn't do much there except going to some great barbeque places and doing a tour of Nairobi NP. Visited a local's family in the jungle near Thika, which was a very chill environment. Going back this summer.>CopenhagenBeautiful city with lush parks, nice people and very bike-friendly. Definitely going to revisit sometime.>VeniceWent during COVID so there were very few tourists except for Italians. Met some locals and spend a whole day at the vineyard on the cemetery island getting wasted. I was there for a whole week but wanted to stay even longer. If it wasn't for the tourists I'd want to live there.Worst>New York CityDirty, weird people, overpriced. Good pizza though and the tour of the USS Growler was interesting. I don't really have any other negative travel experiences.
>>2395924Forgot about Paris, the whole city smells like piss and graffiti everywhere. Also pushy people trying to sell you souvenirs randomly walk up to you everywhere. Not a fun experience, I expected more from France's capital.
>>2393128Unless you're hanging around Twerton you won't even see anything like that.Agreed Bath is by a stretch the best city to visit in England. Unless you're just interested in the vibe in summer I wouldn't spent more than a couple of days there though.I would also recommend going through the Gloucestershire Cotswolds than Somerset though.>>2393194Oh wow there's .... some tiny statue at the end of a street. And wow look theres a historic town square ... that literally every city on the continent has.
>>2393194Even Belgians themselves avoid Brussels like the plague. It's a disgusting city with a tiny tourist trap centre and some nightlife options for students. Antwerp or Ghent provide much better experiences if you're in Belgium.
>>2373573That could describe most cities in america. But at least Oregon and PNW have nice scenery
>>2365767Favorite:Mt Athos, Greece - Amazing place, something otherworldly about it. No women, no billboards, just the waves crashing against the cliffs and the mountain looming overhead. I stayed at Simonopetra and the accommodations were comfy and super cleanCappadocia, Turkey - The geography is awesome. Fun place to hike around and explore even if it's become touristicNaples - I heard a lot about muh crime and muh immigrants but I really enjoyed it. More characteristic than the northern cities I visited and the food was cheap and fantastic. Sorbillo was god tierLeast:St Louis - shitholeLos Angeles - the traffic fucking sucks, the people are cunty and fake niceBaltimore - self explanatory
>>2396389There's a regional ticket that covers a huge area. When I still used to use it, I always brought the one with the student discount - driver's never check anything if you're using the app. I made trips to Wells, Weston-Super-Mare, Cheddar, etc. with it. Bath alone can be done in probably a day or two, but I recommend a few days to explore the country side and smaller towns, also Bristol. It's probably one of the nicest corners of England.Here's a trip I recommend.Take a bike (or walk, but it will take longer).Go to Come Down Tunnel, the northern end. Basically it's an old railway tunnel that is now a walking/cycling path. It quite long and it's always pretty cold inside, even during the summer. I've gone through it several times and I always get a slightly eerie feeling. When you emerge, follow the green road towards Monkton Combe. It's a very, very classical English village. There's a pretty church and a cemetery. Then continue along towards Dundas Aqueduct. There the Bath canal crossed river Avon. There's also a railroad underneath and it's a good spot if you're into trainspotting. You can't miss it, it looks bigger than any of the photos in person. There you have the option to go to either Bradford on Avon as signed off with teal for a daytrip. There's another aqueduct on the way there, albeit it is less impressive. It gets more wooded after Dundas going towards Bradford, so if that is your jam you'll like it. Otherwise follow the blue line, along the canal, to go back to Bath. It's a very, very nice cycling trip all around. You're mostly following level ground too as you go directly under the hills in the first stage and then circumvent them going back.Best done on a sunny day for full kino. May/June is probably the best time, everything is green, days are sunny and it doesn't rain that much.
>>2396421>driver'sdrivers*Also the first part of the trip, getting to the Northern Tunnel, is not particularly impressive as you'll be mostly going through ugly suburbs, but once you hit the tunnel and get to the other side, it's pure kino thereon.
>>2373939you like gang tourism and seeing the uglier parts of the city but were depressed by warsaw commieblocks and people not smiling?
>>2396421im staying in london for a month soon, will i get stabbed trying to take a train from london to go to bath? is it really that bad? or just at night time?
>>2397241Jesus Christ stop being such a weak minded faggot where anonymous posts have mind broken you into thinking in memes.No, you will not make it through that journey, stay home, never leave your room and never do anything with your life.
>>2397241Most of Europe went from high-trust very low crime societies to a multicultural more USA-like society in a short time so there is a lot of exaggeration, but take precautions, watch yourself don't walk about aimlessly at 4AM. London still has a lower crime rate than most US cities despite being muzzied.
>>2397241Nah. I dated a black girl (sue me) who flew to London twice. Shes fine. Just dont prance around late at night. If I fly to London though, personally - I'm not staying there.
>>2377276>all this seethefucking kek
>>2365767>>>2365767 (OP)>best:>Bangkok, Thailandchill vibes while also having tons of things to do for a good price. don't care much about paying for sex and it is still great. great food. good hub to tour sea>Mandalay, Myanmarcool mixture of Indian and Chinese influence. Chaotic but not in an indian type of way. off the beaten path so no annyoing tourists anywhere. rich culture and phenomenal food. cheap asf>Yerewan, ArmeniaBasically Tblisi but way less fucked by gay ass tourists. Authentic as it gets and the people are friendly and based. There is also a cool artsy bar scene there if you like those kind of things. You can get around easily with the socialist metro system.>worst:>Jaipur, India.worst indian city I have been to and by far the worst one in this list. just a giant sewer in the middle of the desert. pigs, sheep, cows, beggars, cripples, tuk tuks just share a dirty street and openly rot and roam around. mind numbing noise and smell wherever you go. the few cultural places are ruined by indian tourists and touts and scammers. avoid.>Tashkent, Usbekistanjust a big nothing. tries to be modern and fails miserably. post soviet misery with a touch of mongol. there are better places in usbekistan.>Perth, Australiaonly thing exciting about this place are the mentally ill bogans and methheads who pour in from the surrounding bush. small yet expensive
fav>IranFriendly people, cheap, nice things to see, nice culture, few tourists.>MyanmarFriendly people, cheap, nice things to see, nice culture, few tourists.>LebanonFriendly people, cheap, nice things to see, nice culture.worst>IsraelIsraelis are annoying, also saw some Jewish children throwing water at some old Arab women in Jerusalem while being cheered by their parents.>JordanJordan has some nice stuff but the people have the annoying Arab pushy scammy attitude, plus some taxi driver told me that there are too many Christians in a city that has been christian for like 2000 years, and he kept swooning about Saddam, then got pissed when I talked about Assad.>GermanyGermans are unbearable.
>>2397869I can’t begin to imagine how awful kr**ts must be if they are on the same level as kikes and sandniggers according to you
>>2384615funny you mention Molde. I lived there for a year and found it clean, safe, prosperous, and completely devoid of charm and energy. Sort of place that makes you feel like you're missing out on the world by being there. Though I'm not Norwegian so I was probably isolated from the social aspects. Tough town to be a cultural outsider in.
