What is the worst country you've ever visited? And what is your most favoured??
When I say worst country i mean things like:

1) really rude people, who lack manors
2) bad drivers that play chicken with pedestrians
3) Very aggressive SCAM artists
4) Lack of law and order
5) Lack of respect for public domains
6) Corrupt public servants like bad cops.

When I say most favoured, think about friendly people,
food, transportation, Nightlife etc etc.

Mines:

Worst is France at the top.

Best was Indonesia.

The shittiest country I've ever visited is China. In terms of racism, and other reasons.

The nicest country I've been, and the one with the hottest men and the coolest vibe is.................. Canada.

I've been to France, and Indonesia. I loved France, had an awesome trip, Indonesia was a steamy shit hole. We were searched every time we went into our hotel, which was filled with wealthy, loud mouthed, Indonesian woman.

France, we had the art galleries, the restaurants, the antiques. Beautiful.

Worst: #1 Haiti #2 France
Best: #1 Netherlands #2 Dominican Republic

Haiti... where to begin... What a shithole. Take a good look at what a government handout conditioned population looks like America. No one works. No one has incentive to work. Why work when you can just get a blank check from more civilized countries?

Towns are filthy with open sewers. Trash everywhere. In Ouanaminthe, the city market is set DIRECTLY ON TOP of the dump. Hey, why make two trips when you can make one, right?

You KNOW you're in a third world country when crossing the border and coming back into the Dominican Republic feels like you're coming back to civilization again.

Fuck the French and everything about them and their awful culture. It was 25 years ago, and I'm still pissed about them.

The DR almost made my top country. If I was to expatriate, it is on my short list along with Nicaragua and Belize.

I chose the Netherlands as my top country because of the people. Nowhere in Europe have I met a more congenial group of citizens. Everywhere I went in Holland, I was made to feel welcome as a foreigner.

The US has the luxury of having places like the Dordogne river, to places like the Sahara, to places like Russia, to places like nowhere else on Earth.

We have a truly great country, and we are making sure to ruin it one inch at a time.

Most nations are mostly good.

I only really encountered problem number 2 (bad drivers). That was in Italy, where people are just horrible drivers, leaning on the horn all day. Italy also stands out for selling me crap pizza with NOTHING other than tomato sauce on it and an empty clam shell for decoration. I guess that's point 3. Not to mention Italian military police pointed automatic weapons at us tourists at the airport (point 6?). All things considered, Italy was a pretty crappy experience...

Holland is actually my top choice for nice people!

But there are nice people in other nations too, England and Tunisia comes to mind. The latter surprised me a little, a much friendlier place than I would have expected.

I love the southern coast of Portugal (the Algarve). I lived there for a month and it was one of my best memories, everyday was paradise. Of course I was there with this fabulous guy at the time, but the area and the people were amazing. I would love to go back and visit some day.

worst place? mexico.

To be honest, the worst country I've ever visited was Toronto, Canada.
The place is a cesspool of immigration and scum bag unicapable anglophones.
I've never seen a place suck up all originality out of people, to turn them into the same look fucking hipsters.

What a mess.

Best country is hands down Jamaica.

Well, I didn't like anywhere in the middle east, or the Seychelles. Portugal wasn't bad, for drinking anyway.
Most of the US is shit, except for the one place I like... which I won't say, to keep it nice.

Saudi, Bahrain, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi.

For the most part, the people were friendly and pleasant, and left you alone.

"USA" (by far the Worst)

With lying Federal Judges and lying Federal Prosecutors, that lie to the Constitution of the USA afforded to defendants..

Just for Political Gains of a Federal Prosecutor done by a Federal Judge. (In Eastern Federal District Court, Brooklyn, NY)

Both can be locked up for 50 years apiece for the illegality they did on 10-31-1989. (and later indictment/conviction). And they still live the lie today!!
