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.

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

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.

Not my idea of a fun city, however I'd gladly take a good paying job there.  Smile

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.

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.

That exactly what i do every time i go, hire a car and explore the island as its so easy to
get around, and i never get bored of exploring Cyprus, the Cypriots are probably some of
the most welcoming and friendly i have ever met and the beaches are probably some of
the best in the med, but the "package holiday" resorts are not for me, there is more to
the island than loud music and cheap alcohol.

Wow, I can't believe it took 23 posts for somebody to say Kansas. I expected that way sooner. However, I don't think its that boring, but, its not for everyone I suppose. I heard somebody say something funny the other day about Kansas. They said, speaking about Florida, "they only state I've ever been to that is flatter than Florida, is Kansas" I'd have to agree.

I'd have to go with Disney World, er cough, Florida. I mean, you've got three parts of Florida. The parts on the coasts, either east of I-95 or west of I-75. Then, its nothing but snowbirds, old people, and rich stuckup snobs. Inside of that, is just like any other state in the south, without the decent scenery, and lots of it is swap. Then, you've got Orlan Disney World do. Nothing to do, except spend ungodly amounts of money. Florida is a really boring place, unless your a big beach person, or carry around packs of C-notes.

Make that Mid to Western Kansas all the way to Denver....absolutely nothing, unless you think Limon Colorado is something. Even eastern Kansas, until you get close to Kansas City, MO, then again, that's mostly in MO. So....

Actually the entire state of Arizona is pretty damn boring. This comes from someone who grew up in Phoenix and went to college in Tucson. When you're in high school it is pretty depressing that your only options are to go to a mall or go to a movie. And when pretty much anything that isn't a movie theater or a bar is closed by 9 or 10pm on a Friday or Saturday night.

Really depends. I live in eastern Kansas right now and there are some (relatively) areas around Lawrence and such. Get west of Wichita/Salina and you can practically see Denver, though...that's awfully boring.

Naw, you mean get west of those hills just on the other side of Topeka by Ft. Riley, and you could just about see Denver. I guess I've never had a problem with the wide open spaces of Western Kansas, even though I've lived most of my life in Eastern Kansas. Sure, Johnson county is nice, but honestly, I'm really regretting not going to KU right now. I know I'd be having so much more fun there than here (ERAU), plus, I wouldn't be spending near as much money.

Another one I thought of, Southern Illinois. Seems to me every time I've driven through there, its nothing but corn. And, well, its just as flat as Kansas.

My vote for the most boring place on Earth is the entire strech of I-80 from Evanston, Wyoming to Laramie, Wyoming. If you like rocks and sage brush, you are in heaven. If you want to see anything else like trees, wildlife, people, you will be sorely dissapointed.

Also, Southeastern Oregon and north central Nevada. Namely, the highway between Burns, Oregon and Winnemucca, Nevada. Nothing. I can't even tell you why it is so boring because there is nothing out there to see or do or avoid because it is so freakin' boring!

Biggest disappointment I ever visited was , without any doubt, Australia, certainly Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane were horrid and dull places to visit with unfriendly people.
The only thing good about the whole Australian continent are the Great Barrier reef (where it is not overwhelmed by death coral) and the blue mountains.

Other boring places:
-Utah
-LA area
-Philadelphia
-Most small rural villages all over western Europe
-The whole of the Arabian peninsula , inhospitable, dirty, hot, little to do and close-mindedness as the norm.

Or FLG or PRC, or DUG, actually, anywhere in AZ that's not TUS or PHX. And yes that includes the Grand Canyon.

Actually the entire state of Arizona is pretty damn boring. This comes from someone who grew up in Phoenix and went to college in Tucson. When you're in high school it is pretty depressing that your only options are to go to a mall or go to a movie. And when pretty much anything that isn't a movie theater or a bar is closed by 9 or 10pm on a Friday or Saturday night.

So geology and history aren't your strong suits I take it?  Wink

Brussels and Atlanta are the two most boring cities that I've ever gone to for leisure purposes (long weekend, etc.). However, I've been to some REALLY boring places for work, including Midland, TX, Stockton, CA, and Lansdowne, VA.

Let me rephrase... when you grow up and spend most of your time in suburbia... that is pretty damn boring. I did like being able to get out and hike in the desert and mountains. But that isn't something you get to do everyday. Its more to counter that Phoenix and Tucson are non-boring places, when in fact they are. Maybe I can back off a bit on Tucson, but only because I was able to drink and had a more interesting social scene in college than in high school.

I was deeply disappointed w/ Atlanta. I was there several years back for a conference, hopped on the MARTA heading for downtown. Went to Underground... that was dull. Walked around downtown in places that looked quite sketchy at times trying to find a place to eat. Not much was happening at 7pm. Made it back to a MARTA station and back to my rental car. And ate dinner in the restaurant in the Marriott I was staying at... conveniently located in an office park with a view of I-85.
