People Share The Worst Cities They Have Ever Visited


Published at 11:09am 19th September 2016.

Have you ever visited a place and thought - never again?

People have taken to Reddit to discuss the cities they reckon we should stay clear of.

User GamoTron21 from Canada asked the people of Reddit: “What is one city you regret visiting?”

In just one day, more than 300 comments have been posted discussing the many disappointing places people have experienced.


Vienna in particular was voted to be people’s least favourite and others were surprised by people’s views on cities such as Dubai.


Pghabroad said: “Cairo. The city is filthy and the people were just awful. The pyramids are impressive but the overall experience is ruined by the rude people and the camel s*** EVERYWHERE.”


Another agreed by writing: “I remember realising how much I hated Cairo when I walked past a burning pile of dirty diapers. A block later, I had to step over a cat carcass.”


The_Mouse_Justice writes: “Manilla. Wish we had completely skipped it over and only transited through. Only a day and a half and it was very meh, especially in comparison to anywhere else we went in the Philippines.”


Another said: “Dubai, but the regret is more that I went there three times. Without a doubt, it is the most soulless, cultureless, and artificial city I have been to.”


User The_Mouse_Justice however disagreed: “I was there at the beginning of November and it was awesome and would love to go back.”


Mcox48 shared: “Medan in Sumatra. Even the locals I met who spoke English had no idea why anyone would go there.”

Another user writes: “Venice. Seriously don't get why people love it. Every town in Italy is better than Venice.”

Murikov said: "Vienna was not my cup at all..."

Other users agreed with this statement, writing: “Agree. Vienna was just “meh” to me.”

While another writes: “Totally agree, Vienna has been my least favourite European city by far. The locals were mean, it was super cold and nothing was extraordinary.”

Meanwhile, another user couldn’t understand these views: “Man, I absolutely adored Vienna, one of my favourite places.”


Bagano1 said: “I don't regret visiting London, but believe me, I didn't expect it to be more like Pittsburgh or Philadelphia than somewhere posh, expensive and upscale. It's a very rough city, a culture shock for most Americans.”

Travel64 said: “Prague. I hated Prague. I'm sure it's a nice place but I went through some really ****** up things there, so now I hate and will never go back.

“Sorry Prague people, it's not you, it's me.”

This left people wondering what had happened and worried about their stay: “I’m here now and it seems ok. What happened to you in Prague?”
