Hey

Might aswell get this going....

1. Las Palmas - Could'nt wait to get out of that place.

2. San Sebastian - If i have trouble sleeping i just think of this place

3. Vienna - The most beautiful city i have ever been in but a bit boring for me.

4. Basle - Nice city, nice people not much else.


Cheers!

I agree on Las Palmas. I have been to the south of Gran Canaria. That was a fantastic place. Las Palmas was rather boring.

I also think Dublin is a boring place. I have spend a weekend out there. I was bored after not too long. No offense, I just couldn't find anything to do. Partially my fault, as I didn't get out of the shopping area.

I've lived and worked in Dublin most of my life and i understand your point, when most
people come to Ireland they visit Dublin and thats it, the best thing to do after you have
done the sights, shops, pubs and clubs in Dublin is get a hire car and a map and spend
a week exploring Ireland and i guarantee you would'nt be disappointed.

Cheers!

Singapore would get my vote for the dullest place in the universe , so sterile that it is a actually a bit creepy ( but not creepy in an interesting way )

My next choice would be any small village in Flanders, I love Antwerp , but the small Flemish villages are all very Stepford , even more sterile than Singapore and just creepy enough to make nearly make them fractionally less dull than SIN

Throw in Los Angeles as well considering the population, it's a lame city.
Atlanta is pretty lame as well and is nothing more than a glamorized southern hicktown.

Depends where you go . I would hire a car and drive around the Island North and South then into the Troodos mountains to really appreciate it. Its not just Pahos and Ayia Napa. A holiday and a place is what YOU make of it.

I have to say I 99% like everywhere I go with the exception of Egypt. It was not boring but I didnt like the hassling from beggers and street sellers. Also I didnt feel safe.

Without having been there myself, that is EXACTLY what I have suspected of that city.
30 years ago, Dubai was nothing and today it's this giant oasis that just about grew over-night. Lots of new money and a very stratified environment for folks with deep pockets.
Not my idea of a fun city, however I'd gladly take a good paying job there.  Smile
I prefer old dirty cities with lots of history such as Amsterdam, Paris, Chicago, New York, Bangkok, Havana, Rio, Manila, Montreal, San Francisco, London, etc....

I was thinking the same when I drove through Ukiah, California.
The song by The Doobie Brothers painted this picture of an old rustic town nestled in the redwoods of northern California with old stores with old wooden floors. (the song was from 1973).
I finally get there in 2000 and see a giant strip-mall with a Wal-Mart & Starbucks and a lot of traffic.
I was disappointed.  Sad

Not necessarily interesting in a good way. Several years ago, with some time to kill on a brief trip to Los Angeles, I walked from Downtown to MacArthur Park mainly because I was thinking about that old song ("MacArthur Park is melting in the dark ...") It was a total dump, I very quickly got out of there, although AIUI the park has gotten a bit better in the last few years.

130 OA260 : I must admit its the first time I ever heard of anyone being bored in Australia. Alot of people I know who went didnt want to come back. They loved A
131 Luckyone : One can't just go to aviation museums while on vacation. Many people do have other interests.
132 Seb146 : I have been all over Nebraska. I enjoyed Lincoln, North Platte, Scottsbluff very much. Omaha? You can keep it. What does anyone think of anywhere els

137 Revelation : I have spent some time in the RTP NC area. Miserable traffic. People nice enough, but incredibly boring. Half hour drive out of town and you're up to

141 Revelation : I've heard Charleston is nicer than one would expect (lots of Civil War era architecture and wide boulevards) whereas Savannah is not as nice as one
142 Luckyone : Nope you've got it right to a point. PARTS of Charleston is nice, but it's a very small part. Much of Charleston is an absolute crap hole once you le
143 RGElectra80 : To all of those hating on Orlando: have you ventured outside of Disney's realm? It's really not that bad of a town. It's not amazing, but there's way

153 Na : While that begging and especially the street sellers are really a pain, a nile cruise is one of the "Musts" in life. Truly amazing. Not for people wi

155 L410Turbolet : Yes I did. Two weeks ago. I guess, coming from Bangkok I could be only disappointed by Dubai, which left me unimpressed as overrated, pretentious and
156 OA260 : Give me Dubai over Bangkok anyday . Whilst Dubai is false and no real historical interest I would not be running back to Bangkok thats for sure.
157 TSS : Bless their little hearts, they're tryin'! Our current mayor seems determined to push Birmingham as a tourist destination, and tangible expressions o
158 KSYR : How are college sports a southern thing?? Last I checked most of America loved March Madness and college football, but I guess I was wrong...?
159 JCS17 : I think it's a bit unfair to list smaller cities and towns. Being that you really don't expect them to have a laundry list of things to do. I could li

164 BMI727 : I've never been to OKC, but rural Oklahoma isn't very nice. It seems that the only new things around are the Indian Casinos. It was the Seatttle Supe
165 Mike89406 : Fair enough, NYC isn't for everyone nor is it the only big city that's fun. It was fun for me when I was younger, however It's not the best place to

168 UAL747 : Yeah, sorry, Supersonics, tad hung over today....and you are right, not doing very well at this point in time. It depends on where you go. Generally
169 OA260 : LOL... spoken like a true Kiwi
170 SOBHI51 : That,s what make Dubai different. Where else can you go skying when the temperature outside is 120? Cooled beaches never saw that. And to my knowledg
171 Us330 : I can probably see that. I've spent the past nine months in Manhattan, and it definitely gets boring (there's only so many times you can walk around
172 Alias1024 : Most big cities in the US are similarly boring. Small downtown and endless expanses of suburbs. The suburbs of any of these cities are virtually inter
173 UAL747 : Well, I won't go into detail about the character of Bennett as his daughter is my friend, but let's just say the people of Oklahoma City weren't too

175 OA260 : LOL... I mean Birmingham , Alabama !! If the pic of the main street is Birmingham UK then Im really surprised !! Its certainly not how I remember it
176 Luckyone : I must say that College Football (and the SEC in particular) is disgustingly ingrained in the culture for many people in the South. It's almost a rel
177 KSYR : I guess that could be because no schools in the northeast are actually good at football on a consistent basis? Also, its not just football that shape
178 Luckyone : I'm going to get flamed for saying this, but the better basketball teams typically belong to the ACC, which has a much better and much educated--ahem
179 Pyrex : No. But then again, they are quite good at Nobel prizes on a consistent basis. What should be the main focus of a university, again?
180 Revelation : I don't get the whole college sports thing. My alma mater is in the final four (is that over yet?) and it's amazing to me to see how so many people w
181 KSYR : Agreed. But the better basketball teams in the ACC (UNC, Duke, and Wake) are all in the south. As is THE rivalry in the sport, Duke-Carolina. I guess
182 Luckyone : I was referring to the South exclusively and the noticeable difference between SEC fans and ACC fans
183 Revelation : Yes, I agree. BTW, KSYR is a pretty boring place. But then again, Storrs CT is far more boring! A big night out consists of going cow-tipping, or get
184 Us330 : Why would you get flamed for saying it? It's pretty well-known that out of the power conferences, the SEC is near the bottom in terms of academic rat
185 KSYR : Haha indeed it is-which is why I transferred out of there and came to UNC! I can take boredom, and I can take cold, but when they are both found in t
