Wow, so patently false. You clearly know nothing about some of the music from DC. Go go and bounce beat. One of most enjoyable live music genres around.

We are not all going to like or have the same opinion as you on various destinations.
There, I fixed "snob" to the proper word to describe him, annoying troll as he is.

My understanding is: if you visited all the places we recommended previously, you might want to check out this place.
I disagree. I've never been to Singapore, but Washington D.C. is definitely not one of the most boring destinations in the world. The fact that the Smithsonians are located there definitely excludes the possibility of that.

It was alright, but had some experiences which would make me question whether I would go back.

Stay out of Managua that is for sure, it is rough.

Here is a car we passed by with a bullet hole in it:

I agree. I went to the Louvre and after two hours was at my limit. I enjoyed chatting with the wine maker at Reisten Winery in Pavlov, Czech Republic than visiting the Louvre.

Who made this list. Why Dubai is not in the list , Dubai is the hottest place for vacations and tourists haven.
Desert Safari is awesome and sky diving is crazy . There are such luxurious villas . And the night beside the beach is breath taking.

Sure, there's a lot to do and see in D.C., but the main attraction(s) either require too much planning to tour (i.e. the White House) or close too early (downtown D.C. becomes a ghost town after normal business hours). True, you can travel to livelier areas late nights, but its sometimes a pain in the butt to get there (for instance, the Metro doesn't go to Georgetown, etc.). D.C.'s not bad, but don't see how its so high on the list. But that's my opinion.

Penn Quarter, Adams Morgan and Dupont are ghost towns at night? Since when? H Street shut down too?
