Travelers spill the one place they’d never visit again: ‘I hated it, I cried the whole time’
Keen travelers are sharing the countries, towns and cities they have visited that they will never go back to again. From Switzerland to China and even Thailand, women are warning people against traveling to destinations where they wished they could leave as soon as they arrived. One woman said LA was ‘dirty and hot and smelly and horrible’ while another reported being ‘extremely bored’ in Malta and a third said she ‘cried the whole time’ she was in Amsterdam. ‘Have you ever visited a country and just hated it and within the first few days all you can think about is leaving for another destination?’ one traveler asked in a post to a Facebook group. The question sparked a flurry of responses with hundreds sharing where they had their worst travel experiences.
One adventurer said she would never go back to London because: ‘there are so many pickpockets. I got my purse opened and wallet stolen, all happened in 10 seconds.’ Another said she ‘felt unsafe’ in Berlin as a solo female traveler and was ‘scared the whole time.’ ‘Mine was Ireland, I really wanted to love it but it just wasn’t for me,’ another added.
Someone said while it was an ‘unpopular opinion’ she found many locals in Phuket in Thailand ‘rude’ and said it was ‘very westernized.’ ‘We could either ride it out or lose $2,000 by getting an earlier flight back home…we opted for losing $2,000 because we hated it so much,’ she said.
Sydney wasn’t a popular destination for a Perth traveler thanks to ‘the constant rain, not hot summers, expensive parking, hard to get anywhere as it’s so big takes so long.’ ‘Bars and clubs close so early, the nightlife wasn’t good at all,’ she added. One woman said she ‘cried the whole time’ she was in Amsterdam claiming it was very expensive and everyone was ‘so rude’ to her and made comments about her plus-sized body. ‘People came up to me and said things to me about my size,’ she said. Another rude city according to group members was the Greek capital of Athens. ‘Everyone was extremely aggressive and rude for no reason. Trying to upscale prices,’ someone said and another agreed: ‘Same! when I was in Athens at 21 with a friend we were constantly cat called by men and stared at!’
‘For me it was Malta, it’s a small island and we were quite bored and Mexico as I didn’t feel safe at all,’ one woman wrote. ‘From the moment I stepped in Switzerland I think I just had bad luck and everything was going wrong for me. The country is beautiful but very expensive and I didn’t really feel the connection with the culture or the places I visited,’ a second chimed in. ‘China, specifically Beijing. I visited with my family when I was about 14/15 and I was veryyy uncomfortable the whole time, people were taking pictures of me,’ a third added. Singapore was another no-go travel spot for one woman who said she found there wasn’t much to do and it was very pricey.
‘I had four days and was bored on the second, searching like crazy for things to do. If you’re into museums they have those though but they aren’t free or cheap,’ she said. ‘I didn’t love the feel either, definitely not like the rest of South-East Asia. It’s fancy and tiny. It is pretty though!’ Another said she didn’t feel safe in Barcelona after witnessing people getting pick-pocketed within minutes of arriving. ‘Literally within 10 mins of being there I watched a man run off with a lady’s purse. Then a student group of like 30 ALL had their passports stolen,’ she said. ‘I think that set the tone for me. Otherwise, I wasn’t impressed with the architecture or any of the activities planned for us.’ Read the full story: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/travel/article-12142113/Women-share-worst-travel-destinations-never-to.html?ito=msngallery
