Anti-travel thread

What parts of the world do you genuinely have no interest in visiting?

For me, it's South America. I simply have no desire to go south of the equator into the homeland of sub-minimum wage workers and abject poverty.
>>
>>1343247
To me pretty much anywhere that I HAVE to go get a big cocktail of shots/vaccinations to hope for not getting a shitty stay, or something I can't get rid of.
>>
>>1343247

South America and Africa, Africa mostly because I feel no connection to it and people always tell me if I go I will feel at home finally and it's like no..I don't extreme wild life, what >>1343257 said, and just have no interest in it
>>
>>1343247
India.
Not debating that it's a great destination with a lot of appeal but to me the cons of dealing with India and Indians heavily outweigh the pros.
>>
>>1343274
I can understand that. Africa is a close second. I liked South America. Went to Peru by myself only knowing basic Spanish. I would recommend paying for the tickets to all the cultural stuff but avoid the guided tours. They are awful and you will have to share the experience with 50 yr old women who are using the divorce settlement to travel. I kind of knee it going in but .....
>>
>>1343260
Yeah I get some shit about not wanting to go to places like that. Like I get that there are vaccines and shots to prevent most any chance of getting the stuff you can catch in X; but it's not worth it imo. I'm more than happy to say go visit somewhere with a little less scenery or whatever for the ability to keep clean on my health factor

Most of the USA I guess.
My bro is there right now. Having a good laugh at how 90% of stuff is poorly designed, bloated and just plain stupid. Aside from a bunch of great natural wonders, the human made stuff surrounding it all seems to be complete bog-standard (I've heard).

I bet there are some cities that have a reason to exist though. Would not mind seeing those.
>>
>>1343286

Most of the US that is without significant nearby natural landmarks or cities (e.g. Denver and its mountains, NYC and its urban setting, LA and its overpriced pretentious bullshit deserving the AIDS plaguing it) is boring as shit. There's a reason most Americans refer to places like Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, etc. as "flyover territory". You know why? Because you might as well fly over it. There's nothing there worth seeing... ever.

Hrm, not sure if you are young, damaged or poor, possibly just uncultured. You rarely hear anyone bitch about the US unless they came without a rental car.
>>
>>1343247

A lot of places have their merits, but I'll never visit India. Everyone I know who visited said that the filth was absolutely unbelievable. I'm no stranger to dirty places, but India just seems to breed sickness. Pakistan looks like shit, too.
>>
>>1343313
>You rarely hear anyone bitch about the US unless they came without a rental car.

Or didn't look up on a map where things are and just how far apart they are. I will never forget the time I had to explain to some people just how far LA, SF, DC, NYC, and Vegas were apart from each other. Their dumbfounded faces when I told them it would be 5 days via train, 4 days driving, or 8 hours on a plane to get from one coast to another was priceless. It's not that America doesn't have a bunch of cool places to see, it's just that the country is really really big compared to others out there so getting around to see them isn't as quick as places in say Europe, Asia, etc.


Want to talk about absolutely nothing? try going around canada
>>
>>1343247
Safariless countries of Africa.
Any place that is at war.

Also places like Canada, China and Egypt don't shine so bright before my eyes, I don't know why. But it could be fun, regardless.
>>
>>1343287
I am so glad Americans got butthurt before South Americans did, in spite of the OP mentioning our Meridional Continent. <3
>>
>>1343318
A good friend of mine travelled around for like 5 months in northern India and said he loved it. I should ask him about the filth because i've been wondering about this too, but I imagine it's especially bad in the bigger cities.
As for Pakistan, I wouldn't visit because it's just downright dangerous
>>
>>1343336
I always kinda felt the same about Egypt, doesn't seem to have a lot of unique appeal except for the pyramids which are a tourist trap anyway. If it's about Arab culture I'd much rather visit Morocco, Lebanon, Jordan or Oman
>>
>>1343313
>I have no argument
OK

>uncultured
Pic related. You fly your colours in the loo

>You rarely hear anyone bitch about the US
Stop hanging out with Hondurans that grew up in shacks and are just happy to be over there, perhaps?

Face it, if you are from places that actually do city planning, you are gonna have a bit of a shock seeing electric wires hanging in the air like it's Phnom Penh from coast to coast.
I'm not even shitposting. It's just that from what I see from the flyover states, apart from natural wonders, you seem to have fuck-all.
>>
>>1343339

Believe me, amigo, I'm not butthurt by any extent. I don't believe that the flyover states hold any relevance to the rest of the US outside of corn production and low-rate whores for cam websites.
>>
>>1343362
I think he referenced the wrong person. Some fatty ( >>1343313
) was bound to get angry about a statement akin to "there's no equivalence to Angkor Wat in Arkansas, nor the surrounding states.
>>
The UK desu

I've been to London and the surrounding areas a few times and it was pretty underwhelming. Everyone speaks English so it makes things very easy (almost too easy, there's no adventure to it), and I don't care for the Royals. People do talk like cartoon characters, so that was kinda funny.
>>
>>1343247
I'll never say no to going anywhere (although I wouldn't go to something like an active war zone without an extremely good reason--I've been in a few dodgy places for work, and they're typically just stressful and expensive rather than exciting), but I do have a handful of places that just don't interest me, including some I have already visited.

I'm not interested in Scandinavia. Really expensive, I don't like the food, and as I'm mostly a city rather than countryside/natural beauty guy, I find most of the Scandinavian cities pretty unimpressive. (Stockholm is OK, but not worth the prices I paid for a bottle of wine with dinner.)

I'm also not that attracted to Australia or New Zealand. NZ is too small and isolated, and Australia seems fine (and I guess I could appreciate the weird animals for a day or two), but not especially interesting in terms of people, culture, and cities, which are typically the big draws for me when I travel. An Australian friend of mine who spends part of every year in Orange County, California (a pleasant but dull part of the US) once told me that Australian culture lifestyle and Southern Californian culture and lifestyle were very similar, and I trust her assessment. So it's too much like home to convince me to fly for 16 hours.
>>
>>1343601

Yeah same here with Australia. To me it just seems like California but with accents, Aborigines.and killer wildlife.
>>
Thailand and also SEA in general.
>>
But guys, isn't not wanting to go somewhere an excellent reason to go? Like, if you're off-put or scared then it's a great opportunity to learn more about yourself.
>>
malaysia, indonesia, hong kong, china, india, canada, russia, mongolia, usa, mexico

can't mention china enough
>>
>>1343622
why don't you want to go to all those places?
>>
>>1343350
not sure how having flags in a restroom is "uncultured"

It's different than yours, but it's not un-cultured.

I thought traveling was supposed to inform you of that.
>>
India has always been my number one place to not go, but i think i would consider it and give it a fair chance atleast once.

Other places i have no desire going till things improve is UK, France, Germany. But i do want to go at a time it would be safe. Not to bring pol perspective into this because im not racist, but i think major changes will need to happen in Europe eventually for it to be back to normal and safe.

Also no Africa, probably goes without saying.
>>
>>1343247
Having visited 6 contients, I can confirm that South America is garbage.

Some beautiful natural sights exist, but Latin culture in general repulses me.
>>
>>1343632
>still butthurt
>not sure how having flags in a restroom is "uncultured"
Keep on pondering that question and you might figure it out one day, youngblood.
>>
Africa, South America, the Arabian peninsula, southeast Asia, south Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangledesh), and err the dirty Caribbean islands like Jamaica, Hispaniola, Trinidad, etc.

Also the US south and midwest (though I've already been there), and UK, France, Germany, etc. until the brown people leave. yucky
>>
>>1343655
oh yeah, and China since I kind of don't want to die of poisoning. I guess Russia falls under that category too... but I'd go to St. Petersburg or Crimea

the countries that kill gays are a no-go for me, too.
>>
>>1343657
and for those who think I'm limiting myself, welp, I have only one lifetime. I'd rather spend it in fabulous places like Oceania, eastern Europe, rural Scandinavia, tropical police states in the Caribbean, the American west, Alaska, and rural Canada, scattered post-soviet states, Mongolia, Japan... yeah that should suit me until the politics of some of those other places change.
>>
>>1343642
>no Africa, probably goes without saying
No it does not "go without saying", a lot of people including me are interested in travelling there so don't say that.
Also, do you genuinely believe the UK, France and Germany are unsafe? What place can you be from that is safer than there? Canada or Scandinavia or some shit?
>>
>>1343622
dude, Mongolia would probably be in the top three of my bucketlist if I were to make one. why would you be so specifically uninterested in going there?
>>
>>1343661
for normal people, going to Africa to visit is a joke. Maybe Namibia or the western Cape is tourist-friendly, but the rest is adventure tourism aka adrenaline jonesing

>>1343666
Perhaps its to do with the culture, mongolians if I recall have been sort of notorious for curb stomping foreigners and shit
>>
>>1343668
yeah, okay, morocco also has the antiatlas and atlas mountains which are tourist friendly.
>>
>>1343661
Don't feed the faggery
>>
>>1343668
A lot of people are appealed by venturing to lesser known exotic countries and they often have great experiences. You're free to call them "abnormal" if you want to but in the end it's just your opinion. Also, I'd say there's several tourist-friendly places other than the ones you listed (Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Botswana, Gambia...) depending on how much comfort you want to find them "tourist-friendly".
>>1343672
I'm just genuinely curious where someone who avoids some of the safest most modernized countries in the world would dare to travel instead
>>
>>1343247
If offered, I would go anywhere except for one place: North Korea. I have zero interest in going to a real live Orwellian state. No thank you.

I'd rather go to belarus before NK
>>
>>1343676
> just genuinely curious
Yeah, but this person is obviously not legit /trv material. People with that much fear do not even get out of bed in the morning.
>>
>>1343676
Tanzania and the Gambia aren't my idea of hot tourist spots, but to each their own. You're right that you can safari in Kenya, visit ancient sites in Ethiopia (actually those are two places I should've mentioned), and yeah Botswana is pretty aside from the HIV thing which shouldn't be ~too~ big a concern.

I just would rather visit countries I can really enjoy. If I want to do climbing or wildlife observing, the west is fabulous and safe for that.

>>1343683
Been all over the world, just don't care to go to shitholes m80
>>
>>1343683
I'm not scared to go to Chile or Panama for instance, I just don't care for latin culture. It's repulsive. As for western european cities, going there would be supporting an oppressive regime, so like I wouldn't go to the Koreas, I wouldn't go there either.
>>
In general I'd be interested in visiting most of the world's countries if the opportunity came across (and they're not ridiculously dangerous). There's just a lot of places that I would never specifically choose to travel to, such as Suriname, Gambia, etc you get the idea.
>>1343681
Agree on this, even if you'd have the guarantee of staying safe it's just insane to pay thousands for a tour guide that gives you zero freedom of your own. NK is probably at the bottom of my list too. And SK might be a close second because it just doesn't appeal to me at all.
Also, I don't think I will ever put time and money into travelling to one of these tiny Oceanian island states. I doubt that they're worth the effort
>>
>>1343685
>Been all over the world
Sounds legit
> just don't care to go to shitholes m80
Nonono, there was genuine fear in what you wrote. You are obviously larping or just plain nuts.
>>
>>1343686
>As for western european cities, going there would be supporting an oppressive regime
But then what regime isn't oppressive dude?
>>
>>1343689
Well, I've been to every state and province, dozens of countries on almost every continent, so yeah... I have traveled the world. Just because we don't agree doesn't make me a liar, moron.

>>1343691
You're right, but most regimes don't put their citizens in direct contact with barbarians. I'd wear a welder's mask if I had to visit London or Paris again. I care about my pretty face too much.
>>
>>1343687

Yeah agreed, SK seems like discount Japan without the food.
>>
>>1343693
>most regimes don't put their citizens in direct contact with barbarians

Are you people so scared of that board that you hallucinate about it? I don't visit /pol/ since it's a shithole, that doesn't mean I'm not allowed to be racist. sorry
>>
I dont have much interest in South America either. There are definitely places there I would like to go, but nothing that makes me think I have to go there before I die.
>>
>>1343693
Oh hey, it's the "progressive racist" dude who is afraid of genocide directed at whites and gays once again! Welcome back, I was waiting for you to derail this thread

>>1343702
I did some traveling the past few days. glad you missed me
>>

But the reason /pol/ is a shithole is because it consists of people like you
>>
>>1343705
yeah, whatever, keep derailing the thread loser
>>
>>1343247
israel, south america north of argentina, central america, india and it's tumors, france, laos, burma
>>
>>1343707
see, I'm pretty anti-zionist, but I'd still like to visit Israel since I'm a history freak. I just don't think they'd let me in given my internet posting record. I think they'd think I had nefarious plans instead of just biblical sightseeing (no, not a christian either...)

That, and I really don't want to give them my money. So, guess it's another no-no for me
>>
>>1343711
Yeah this, Israel might be cool but if there's one government I definitely don't want to support it's them
>>
>>1343714
yeah, but that's how I feel about the entire middle east.

whatever, like I said, I only have one lifetime. For desert history, the American southwest is incredible. For ancient sites, Japan is plentiful, and stone circles in the UK and even of more recent construction, castles of norman (and thus of the style of antioch and other middle eastern castle towns) history are also beautiful to relax near.

I'd like to go the dead sea, sure... but Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake or hell, even Bolivia's salar de uyuni is more agreeable to my beliefs. Just lacks the historical significance unfortunately. But whatever. I'd go to Turkey, too... but with their shitshow politics, I think I could settle for Greece and Bulgaria.
>>
>>1343247

Japan/South Korea

I'd much rather go to China/SEA, less toxic social culture and not just a re branded west.
>>
>>1343721
how is south korean social culture not toxic...? seems oppressive and totalitarian as fuck to me, in fact, I'd say it's one of the more toxic cultures from plastic surgery obsession to idol-worshiping to the pornography ban to the internet ID thingy... yeah, dunno
>>
>>1343697
He is larping playing as me i guess. It sure is great how he derailed this whole thread really well.

Yeah africa is hardcore, id have to do much more solo traveling to feel safe there. Thats why it "goes without saying"... not meaning theres nothing there, but nothing that interests a normal person who travels as much as they can and want to make the most and not die 100% for sure.

>>1343683
Yeah nah, not afraid to get out of bed, just prefer places i want to go. South America, Australia, Canada, Eastern Europe, Russia was the most "difficult" place i have went and it pushed me out of my comfort zone but was great. Hence why i have changed my mind on india since then

Hope thats a logical counterpoint to you, dont mind the fag pretending to be me.
>>
>>1343733
what? he said that SK was toxic, not that it wasn't
>>
>>1343733

He's probably referring to drunk westerners in tourist-oriented countries as toxicity.

Of course he probably doesn't know about South Korean alcohol consumption rates.

No argument there, its the similarity of town sized settlements I'm talking about. I did a coast to coast US trip a while back and so experienced it first hand. I haven't visited any other country with so many identikit towns that seemed so utterly devoid of character. Perhaps this is just a superficial judgement though. For example where we were able to eat at non chain restaurants we always had massive plates of tasty food in true American style.

Is this the official shitposting thread?
>>
>>1343278
On Tinder now, you often see them posting stuff like "looking for a future ex-husband" they're arrogant, shallow, manipulative skanks and they feel entitled to act like that.

By the way no hookups (unless you're a model/footballer)

There's plenty to see in the US without a rental car... If you agree to never leave NYC, SF or DC.

I saw a YouTube video with a Russian guy traveling across the US. He was arrested for walking.

I've crossed the country 6 times and been to every state. It really is a cultureless hellhole, but with some of the most amazing scenery in the world... Yellowstone and Grand Teton, Arches and the canyons of southern Utah/northern Arizona, the Great Lakes...

but the towns are all cookie cutter and even where they're not, like New England, they're still empty shells with shit aesthetic value for the most part. Yeah, I have a folder of 50 amazing towns in the US, but they're extreme outliers.

As for chain restaurants, yeah no, I wouldn't be caught dead in one. I don't even shop at chain stores because I'm lucky enough to live in a part of the country that isn't completely soulless, though it aspires to be.

Pretty much the entire US. I guess some cities are interesting but a lot of places require you to have a car to get anywhere and I don't have a driver's license.

In a similar way all of Britain, France, Northern Italy. I am from Austria myself so I have 0 interest in Switzerland or Germany.

im with you. every fucking aussie expat wants to live there and work in a bar or some shit and i dont know why.. I just see it as just another extremely expensive city with miserable weather, and apparently a smelly river.

South America has been amazing for when I traveled. Much less tourist crowds than Europe, felt more adventurist and immersed in their communities there.

Travel noobs probably don't like S.America because they're scared there are only a few places where you can go to an all-inclusive resort and vegetate. But if you're up for an adventure, S.America is a plus in my book
>>
1. New York
2. India
3. Japan

The rest of the world is ok, but I'd never, ever want to visit these places. I hate NYC with passion.

You mean cancerous cities that contribute to the pollution of the whole planet, made of skyscrapers that look like dumps of excrements and totally devoid of history and human values? You know who lives in those prettiest sites? Insects. Worthless insects who only exist to complete Capitalism's race towards the End.

No, I mean people mock the idea of having a good meal in those countries. Chinese cuisine is disgusting and I've heard dozens of anons say that here and Mexican cuisine is just sugar and processed junk and really sickly. You didn't know this?

>waving your flag in a bathroom

Flags should be respected and belongs on flag poles, not in a place where it can easily be shit and piss stained. Making and wearing clothing out of national flags is also a sign of subhuman behaviour.
>>
South Africa. Watched a youtube video of a white south african who said that, when you are in a city, you should always travel in groups and NEVER let women walk around alone. If you are walking alone in a SA city you will get robbed and if a woman walks alone she will get raped, and both might end up bein another murder.
>>
>>1344029
That happens in a lot of places all over the world.
>>
>>1344030
Sure, but that is a specific country I'm not going to visit due to what an actual south african said.
>>
>>1344029
That's what I've heard. You're not supposed to walk at night especially and need to take a taxi to and from everywhere you go. Not to mention the massive South American style jail walls surrounding all their properties.

I would go in the sense that it might be my last chance to go... but right now, it seems it might be too late to enjoy myself the way I like to when I travel. If work gave me the opportunity to go to the western cape I'd consider it. Knysna, Stellenbosch... too bad
>>
>>1344029
That is seriously exaggerated.If you think that women don't walk alone and people get mugged in the streets daytime, non-stop in Cape Town CBD, you are wrong. The really dangerous places are places where you would not set foot in anyway.
>>
>>1344036
So one tiny 5 square mile area is safe? wow booking my ticket now

Anyone who got pissed at this is a hypocrite just saying. I imagine anyone who lives in other countries would feel offended at this thread too.

>>1343779
Europe is full of people like you who expect that USA is some unlimited wealth center with the best buildings and everything is best best best. There are places people live. These have endless Burger Kings because people just live there. There are also big cities that are literally 50 years old like Phoenix or Seattle because for some reason people forget the USA is a pioneer country that had a FUCKHUGE amount of space that even to this day goes unused.

YES our 50 nicest cities are extreme outliers because that is how the country is designed. Wealth goes into them, the people live outside of it dreaming, working inside of the big cities with big dreams.
>>
>>1343286
At the risk of sounding like an elitist snobby European, America seems really, really tacky
>>
>>1344043
you'd be right, but from my experience in some of poorer western europe, the cookie cutter houses some of you folks live in are vile. At least Americans paint their houses different colors, design their yard differently, have a big yard, even... etc. I mean, I agree, but hell, I'd rather live in a trashy American town than a trashy British or French town. Those are just soul-sucking Russia tier
>>
>>1344040
>tiny
I was using Cape Town city centre as a reference. Plenty of other safe places in the burbs. The point is: the really dangerous places are places you would never go to anyway, unless you have a thing for shabeens.
>>
>>1344045
A lot of people travel for nightlife as well.. in fact, most people I'd say do. Not being able to walk around at 2am drunk is how I judge whether a place is somewhere I'd like to visit or not.

Don't get me wrong, beautiful country, beautiful (white) culture, but I can't spend my dollar going to a country actively allowing farm murders and racism and whatnot.

The US have no history at all. That's why they're ugly everywhere you look and why they're completely useless for humanist purposes. But it's not their fault. It's just that they were born in the capitalist era, and capitalism has no history whatsoever. Capitalism is out of history. Everything made and built after its beginning is worthless and poor, except for literature and music. If the US were formed even a century before the beginning of the capitalist era they would be admissible. Sorry but this is the truth.

Places like O'Higgins area and Ushuaia and stuff seem like they'd be filled with cool people, so I also want to go there to hike and whatever one day. Can you even hike in places like Colombia or Kenya or Cambodia or Pakistan? Not at all, so I have no interest in going there.

What's the shifting goalpost? Africa isn't filled with chill people. It's filled with gross and vile stuff. I'd literally rather climb Steens Mountain or any peak in the North Cascades. The idea that I'm going to go Africa like some Cecil Rhodes wannabe is sort of a joke. I don't feel comfortable one bit going there. I only have X amount of money to spend on travel in my life, and I'd sooner spend it all going back and forth to Japan and the Alps than fucking Africa or South America.

Oh, no you mistook me. I didn't mean there wasn't hiking available in those countries, clearly. The implication was that I wouldn't feel safe camping and being on my own there. I am sensitive and I don't care to be worldly. Why are you so self-centered that you think everyone travels for the same reasons you do? I'm not ashamed of my preferences and I've already seen a great deal of the world. I can spend a lifetime traveling without ever going to a brown place... so why do you think I'm incapable of doing just that? Now I'm not a traveler because I prefer places like Sapporo, Quebec, St. Barts, Queenstown, Reykjavik, the Faroes, Newfoundland, Kodiak, Gold Coast, Jeju, blah blah blah?

I mean, really. I'm not exactly embarrassed that I don't like looking at ugly things, and that includes ugly people. I like the luxurious and the cozy. You shouldn't be so angry at me for not agreeing with you...

When I plan on sailing around the world in another decade, I expect to have to dock in places I'd rather not. At that point, maybe I'll be a bit less spooked by being around darkies.

>>1344081

Fair enough. I just think you should underline in the beginning of conversations that you are a bit of a wuss.

The audience? buddy I'm not here to entertain your narcissistic ass. I'm giving my opinion, not trying to present to you in order to change your mind, sort of what you're doing to me by arguing how I'm this or I'm that because I don't think like you. Grow up.

The world is really dangerous, why am I unjustified? Cognitive bias? Aren't you the one with a cognitive bias by ignoring the obvious that is there are differences between the races? I mean, you consider me paranoid but I consider myself completely rational. I have X amount of money and Y amount of time, so I choose to spend it on the most beautiful and relaxing places I can find. If you travel for adrenaline, then you should be the one pointing out that you're deviating from the norm. Why do you think the Caribbean or Disney World is one of the most popular tourist destinations and buttfuck nobody visits west Africa? Were you just sent to the past from the year 2243 where africans have finally evolved society? People like to feel safe, this isn't breaking news, but if you know nothing about human behavior I guess it is.

Tayrona National Park in Colombia was probably the best hike I've ever done in my travels, you gotta try it one day.
As far as cool people I thought I met a good amount there, from partying with new friends on rooftop lounges, getting invited to dinners with their families, bar hopped with a taxi driver i just met. They know how to party, dance and have good times there.
One of the coolest people I met was a senior lady telling me amazing stories of her surviving the 90's cartel days over a dinner she cooked me.

>UK, France, Germany

You've been sufficiently pilloried for that, I guess. But if you consider those countries too unsafe to visit, travel may not be for you.

That's like saying "Asia." The cultural, political, and geographic landscapes vary hugely across a huge continent. I've been once, to a small corner of Kenya, briefly -- would go back in a heartbeat.

Yes. Police suggests women don't walk around alone after dark. Are you a grill that likes to walk alone in the dark in ghettos? If not, you do not have a cause to get your panties in a bunch.

You should probably stay right where you are.

Yeah, it was all an Astrid Lindgren novel until mass immigration. These ghettos have existed since the late sixties, and rapes are universal and timeless. But this is all beside the point. Are you a grill that wants to hike through the ghettos of Malmö at night? If not, you do not have a case.

The same bullshit spiel. "But anon you never leave your home state". The most naive retards in this country are the ones that have no contact with ghetto trash, mainly countryside youth and suburban liberals with no real concept of proper street violence. Familiarity breeds contempt, and more often than not our intrepid gentrifiers move into Detroit proper with little but some stupid fantasy of racial harmony and helping revive a dead city. The rapes, robberies and general niggery stave them off from completely overrunning the area.

No one can convince me that what I saw in Paris was maybe a few square miles of beautiful architecture and civilization surrounded by hideous modernist apartments that looked like Russian commieblocks painted in retarded colors like pink and blue. That is where you hide your north africans and niggers, but you can't fool people who do a little walking beyond the tourist shit. I think a little past St. Denis station all I could see was Senegalese migrants and stores/shops that catered to them, and elsewhere the same was true but for Algerians. What was once a beautiful city is now surrounded by Le Corbusier style tenements painted in shit colors filled with shit people who turn the city into an even bigger dump, much less the shitshow that is Calais or Marseilles. Of all the places I got to visit in France, Dieppe was the only truly clean, friendly and non-fucked area I got to see. Fucking redditors, I just wish you cocksuckers would leave already.

Fucking Paris. I took the metro from one of the outlying suburbs to the city proper and I couldn't believe how bad some of the areas were. I told myself that not every area is going to be peachy, but I kept on seeing metro stations on my way to St. Denis that looked like a slum barrio, fitting of some shit hood in Mex City. They even had the same ugly paint colors on the buildings, the gypsies fulfilling the role of street beggars, and the algerians/africans fulfilling the role of guys who didn't exactly enjoy you in their neck of the woods.

And no, I'm not a white dude. America has plenty of problems of it's own, which I don't deny. I see it every time I commute to class. But the Europeans just infuriate me. They act so smug about their continent and refuse to smell the coffee and accept the reality that they fucked themselves. We're so bad and we're so impoverished and uncultured, but Parisians were gobbling McDonald's like any fatass over here like it was another monday in the american burbs. I saw more africans and arabs in two weeks of visiting France than I did living in a metro area that has the largest concentration of Chaldeans and Muslims in the country. Literally even the police force is full of them. But no. I'm just ignorant and some /pol/tard with no cultural awareness. Get fucked, I saw what I saw and I wasn't impressed until I got to Dieppe. Dieppe was beautiful and Normandy was everything I envisioned when I thought of France as a kid. Modern, urban Europe is just another disappointment. Paris still had great architecture, and your Vietnamese immigrants are top tier people.

Honestly I don't know why Euro's don't just adopt the Canadian model for immigration. Toronto was great the last time I visited, and barring some shitbags from problematic ethnic groups it was actually a damned good cosmopolitan city that had functional and diverse citizenry (of educated people worth integrating).

But a redditor, much like your average American, takes everything to extremes when it comes to talking politics. Which again, is why I avoid the cesspit of /pol/, where some retard in bumfuck Kansas is going to lecture me on why catholics are actually jews in disguise. It's dumb as shit and I'll laugh at them, but they are far better to deal with than some pea-brained fuck from Minneapolis who needs to blabber about him/herself and what a great person they are. At their core redditors are narcissistic pieces of human dogshit, and putting them all into a grinder would merit a humanitarian award, beyond improving the quality of dialogue on the internet.

>problematic ethnic groups
See, this is the shit that I'm talking about. I'm not denying immigration is a huge problem and I don't have any easy solution to it either, but there's nothing more cancerous than retards making it into a "us and them" situation judging anyone by their ethnicity. The real problem is a financial one, not a cultural one, and acting like a manchild about "muh traditional western culture and values" doesn't help anyone.

Sorry ted, but not every culture is equal. some are objectively inferior, a lesson the Euro's are learning already. But I don't need to justify my beliefs, they will make themselves evident when Europeans are a minority in their own countries and there is no external political power to save them from their terrible decisions. This is where I stop making fun of the /pol/tards, because even a broken clock is right twice. Pretending it's about economics is fucking retarded, and a stupid materialist viewpoint to cling to. There is a fundamental cultural problem with the "New Europeans", and no amount of diversity lecturing is going to stop them from stomping your shit in when they get emboldened by their growing numbers.
>>
>>1344580
Yeah, you're doing a great job improving the quality of dialogue on the internet kid. A comment filled with unnecessary slurs without any argumentation like this one is a good example of something that would get rightfully downvoted on reddit. The irony...
And you don't need to demonstrate that /pol/ is utter cancer, we all know that.

There is no irony, Reddit is a shithole and I vehemently reject their disgusting site culture. This place is a bastion of unfiltered discussion, and I'm glad I can use the slurs I feel like using. I imagine in your mind that "quality of discussion" is everyone kissing eachother's asses and agreeing on everything because all the dissenters were thrown out by the mods/votes. This is exactly the sheep mentality I hate about Europeans. You all gloat about your superiority but the biggest Euro countries combined are dwarfed by the American economy. You're a dying continent and your best idea in the age of automation was to import millions of brain-dead migrants who refuse to integrate and disrespect their host routinely by elevating the crime rate of every place they flood? who would've thought that this would foster hatred, suspicion and disgust. You arrogantly think you can uplift your newcomers to your cultural standard, but you're so painfully naive that YES, I don't need to justify my xenophobia. It justified itself in Cologne, Calais, Marseilles, Paris, Ceuta, Munich and Stockholm. There are plenty of other cities I can mention that took in these bold newcomers and ate shit for it, but I'd be wasting time. The fact is that this kind of "disrespectful" discourse is exactly what's needed on the internet right now. So people don't just slurp up the bullshit people would otherwise feed them. I saw this crap on reddit where people would advocate moving to ghetto neighborhood and said it was a "up and coming" area, but a quick drive would tell you what a nightmare that place was. One of our worst neighborhoods is being sold as a "growing" community on a local sub for my metro-area. Lying through their teeth to find warriors in their battle to gentrify fucking Detroit. Dissent? Downvoted to oblivion. Fuck you.

Believe what you want to believe. Apparently you already went down the road of equating violence and refusal to integrate by a minority of the immigrant population to a cultural problem amongst the majority. I've argued with people who went down this ideological rabbit hole before and honestly, I'm not going to "justify my beliefs" again because you're likely already beyond saving. People like you generally don't get out their echo chamber anymore.
>Reddit is a shithole and I vehemently reject their disgusting site culture. This place is a bastion of unfiltered discussion, and I'm glad I can use the slurs I feel like using.
I agreed earlier that reddit's downvoting can sometimes be toxic and limiting to free speech, but 90% of the "free speech" here on 4chan is just pure 14yo-tier alt-right edge like "niggers suck amirite xD". There's simply no reason why that kind of cancer has to be allowed just so everybody wastes their time reading through it. A voting system does a good job at filtering out that kind of unconstructive content.

What you call filtering I would call censorship. But I'll give you props for bothering to reply without devolving into total shitposting. In the end we aren't going to agree, that should be obvious. What I will say is that you are generalizing what people say here. Most free speech on this site is just people discussing anecdotes and other people choosing whether or not to believe them. That they are allowed to be shared at all is good, because power-tripping mods/janitors are cancer. I remember pre-2010 it was a huge bitch to find a good forum that wasn't overrun with moderators who let all the authority get to their head. It never did good for a community, and Reddit is so fucking devoid of creativity they infest other sites to suck them dry before ruining them. Just because you don't like slurs doesn't mean everyone else agrees with your assessment. Another issue with redditors, mass narcissism. You aren't the only user here, and probably haven't even been here that long. This site has worked for 14 years, it'll do fine without mass censorship and "content curating".

I never did answer the OP, so here goes:

South Africa, Brazil, Somalia, North Korea, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo. I'm willing to take risks when I travel, but I draw the line at societal rot so embedded that crime is considered a part of daily life in a country. And fuck going to North Korea just for the sheer paranoia of never knowing if you'll be used as a political chess piece or getting accused of being a spy.

A lot of people on reddit agree that the downvote system takes weird turns sometimes. There's also an issue of power abuse/censorship directly by mods but this doesn't happen in every sub.
The thing is I have no problem with slurs per se, especially if they make sense in context, I simply think it's childish to wage a war on them just because you absolutely can't live without saying nigger and faggot every other post. Part of downvoting stuff like that may be censorship, but another part of it is just enforcing normal civilized behavior that would just as well be expected from you offline. You can go in the street and autistically screech hate talk to everyone but you shouldn't be surprised if people react negatively. I see reddit as following that principle. But again, some things do get censored that can be said more freely here, it's not a black and white issue.
>You aren't the only user here
When something gets massively downvoted, it's not just one person who didn't approve of it. It's true that many people just downvote because of peer group effect (which is why reddit sometimes hides scores), but broadly speaking I think downvotes are very often "justified".
>This site has worked for 14 years, it'll do fine without mass censorship and "content curating"
I'm not advocating bringing a vote system to 4chan, there's already reddit for that. Just pointing out that not everything about 4chan's system is superior.

Here on 4chan whoever has the most time to dedicate to posting has the loudest voice. There are quality posters here but they're often eclipsed by shitheads who have nothing better to do than shit up threads.

European big cities are fucking terrible. Literally the same fucking shit everywhere, except maybe in the o so valuable Oldtown which sometimes is 20 buildings. Especially capitals suffer from this shit.
I guess that counts for most big cities now, thanks to globalisation. Other than that I personally don't have any fixed preferences.
>>
>>1344842
Maybe in central/western europe. However in the balkans and eastern Europe there's much more variability between the countries and their capitals.

>>1344680
Which unfortunately means one 14 year old edgy /pol/tard can shit up an entire thread by posting on it every minute. If only there was a way to filter out underageds.

Canada is pretty much PNW in Vancouver and the Midwest in Ontario and so. Never been to Quebec but not sure if it's THAT much different asides from the language)
>Nordics (expensive (my friends visited there and they say Oslo is more expensive than London. that sounds so crazy), nothing to do, nothing to see besides aurora and fjord. Heard both of them are nice but I don't think I will go to Nordics until I see all the rest of Europe)
>Sub Saharan Africa with exception of Namibia, Kenya, and Tanzania. Not sure if Botswana is worth going.

I really like to go to the Middle East, even Syria and Iraq. The only thing that puts me off is the war and terrorism as well as hardship to get visa in countries like Saudi Arabia. Hopefully, the Middle East get stabilized and I can go to Iraq, Syria, and so to see some Mesopotamian stuffs.

As for East Asia, once you fully go through Greater China (the Mainland, Taiwan, HK, and so), Japan and SK won't impress you much. I am Korean and I've never found either Japan or SK to be that impressive in terms of monuments/relics and natural sites after I visited China.
>>
>>1345023
No interest in Ethiopia? It's one of the countries in Africa that I wanna go most desu. Maybe not as good for wildlife as those three you listed.
Norway is indeed expensive as fuck and culturally there's not a whole lot to do (still a few cool things though), but I have to say they have some of the most beautiful nature I've ever seen so far, if that interests you.
>>
>>1345024
>Ethiopia
Oh forgot that. I am definitely visiting there if I have a chance. Things like tej interest me and it seems like good weather at least in Addis Ababa, the capital.

If not for wars and shit, I might have been interested in visitng Mali for the Mosque of Djenne and Timbuktu but it doesn't look stable enough.

As for Norway, my friends say aurora and fjord are definitely worth seeing but their comments of 'more expensive than London' really puts me off and I don't think I would be that interested in other Nordic countries with possible exception of Iceland purely because I want to visit the home country of Sigur Ros.

Pretty fun you say that, cause imo Korean food is much better than Japanese food, been to both and prefer Korea actually (might be biased though)

I'd say Korea is more of a relaxed version of Japan, although if you're into anime I can see Japan having more appeal

I hate travelling by land. Bumpy, the airconditioning snells like shit, takes very long to reah destination, and accident prone. but this is all due to me being in a 3rd world country. No trains.

At least planes and boats make me sick. Why are car freshners terrible?

Berlin,they have literally no luxury hotel except for a Kempinski
Mykos, too many flaming homos compared to classic homos
San Fran,i preferred Seattle
Toronto, much too boring
Pattaya,i dont enjoy sexlife too much and the nightlife is so-so
Penang,food is good but its a crowded island
Nassau, plenty of better islands
Da Nang is inferior to many asian beach city though better than Pattaya
Busan is too uninteresting
Shenzhen is inferior to other big Chinese city especially Guangzhou
Naples is trashy and dirty,rather go to Turin

This is somewhat funny but still not really good bait honestly. It's too unsubtle, no one believes that you are actually this dumb. The trick of baiting well is to say something that does sound retarded but comes across in a believable way.
