Unfriendly Cities, 10 of the World’s Unfriendliest Cities
1. Cannes, South of France
The city that is famous for film festivals and celebrities walking around on the red carpet is known for its obvious reason- being too snobby. Also, the people are very cold and most of the things you’d find there are expensive.
If you happen to walk inside a restaurant, make sure, you have checked the price because otherwise, you will be paying a bill that costs half of your trip.
2. Jakarta, Indonesia
This one is just called downright dirty. With roads crowded with people and roadways that aren’t maintained properly, Jakarta fits in the list of unfriendly cities. Also, the entire place gets dirtier during the floods, making it impossible to move around.
3. Moscow, Russia
Okay, this one is quite predictable. We love the Russian accent that lingers in English, among the native speakers. But it does get annoying with no sign boards or menus in English and almost everyone speaking in Russian.
4. Cairo, Egypt
Known for it’s over friendly seeming tour guides who are either behind money or your belongings. As beautiful as it is, it is also very bad for an individually planned visit.
5. Boston, USA
It all starts with the attitude. People of Boston are way too superior or so is what they feel and hence there is no or literally zero respect to other people from other countries.
6. New Delhi, India
It’s too dirty and we certainly do not want to waste anything and add to the existing pile in the city. Or rather, the existing city in the pile.
7. Beijing, China
There are two reasons for this. Pollution and over population, both of which add to an uncomfortable surrounding.
8. Los Angeles, USA
That is the land of all dreams. Hence that is probably everything that they are looking for among travellers. Individuals throwing tantrums and disappearing later is very common.
As of now, it is the city of charms and it has rude and mean people all over. So it mean that people wouldn’t give directions.
10. Casablanca, Morocco
This is a place where all the art and design is intact but people are just plain cold hearted. Be sure to face rejection or wrong answers while you are at Casablanca.
There you have it, unfriendly cities, 10 of the world’s unfriendliest cities and a fine list of where not to go if you are looking for a friendly good morning or welcoming smile.
