Top 10

+Põlva, Estonia- it is 46 km from Tartu, but people differ almost like a day and night. Went for a shopping today with my 85+ yo grandma with poor eyesight -random customers come and ask how can they help as usually. Will they ever ask anything like that in Tartu?? Never! Grandma is in fact from the northern side of E. and tells there is everything is a bit different there. But South-Estonians and south-Estonian mindset here.
+ many other places


Bottom 10

-Tartu, Estonia- well, the town with houses itself isn´t that bad but the people are rude and snide.
-Mogadishu, Somalia- just the world´s most dangerous city, what the hell one should do there.


(What an objectivity and neutrality lord I am, lol)

Kuala Lumpur and Kathmandu sound pretty awesome actually, and from what I heard Hong Kong is just a concrete jungle. But Tucson is...interesting choice lol

Top 10 (no particular order)
  • Los Angeles - World-class megalopolis and all it entails
  • San Francisco and the Bay Area - An odd local population, but a lot of splendors
  • Vancouver, British Columbia - It's all great, except the weather
  • Albuquerque/Santa Fe region, New Mexico - I simply love it
  • Amsterdam/Randstad region - This region has a similar population as, and kind of feels like, the SF Bay Area in the U.S. Cool cities, too. Okay, so I was not "bowled over" by Amsterdam; I mean, I liked the place, but thought it was overrated. Rotterdam, The Hague and Leiden, all in the Randstad region, were more of my thing.
  • Berlin - You MUST visit once in your life!
  • New York - Capital of the world
  • Prague - Great architecture
  • Vienna - Great architecture
  • Budapest - Charming and well-preserved
  • BONUS: Heerenveen, Netherlands - a charming, small Frysian town that is surprisingly lively, and full of locals that made me feel very comfortable and welcome

    Newly added: Mexico City - just Chapultepec, Reforma, and all the museums are enough to keep one busy for weeks.

Bottom 10 (no particular order)
  • Indianapolis - Dull for its size
  • San Diego (seriously!) - Drastically overrated
  • Tijuana - Can be fun, but mostly it's a high-crime dump
  • Atlanta - A seriously underwhelming and very high-crime central city for a city of its stature
  • Dayton, Ohio - Depressing
  • Zwolle, Netherlands - Depressing, though at least the people are reasonably friendly as I remember them
  • Assen, Netherlands - Depressing and simply dull
  • Dessau, Germany - Not a terrible place necessarily, but it just feels stuck in the 1980s
  • Washington, DC - Leave the Capital Mall and Northwest Quadrant and the city goes to crap quickly! (It is still improved from the 1980s and 1990s, however.)
  • Jacksonville, North Carolina - Even Camp Lejeune, the local Marine Corps base, is nicer than the town

    Newly added: Louisville, Kentucky: Aloof, surly and rude populace, despite their self-proclaiming of their friendliness.
Updates above:
- My opinion has changed a little bit on the Dutch Randstad region.
- Add Mexico City to my favorites list. Just went not too long ago. Wonderful place!
- Add Louisville, KY to my least favorites list. I think one has to actually be from the city, or a more run-down rust belt city, to appreciate it.

Kathmandu is a chaotic mess, full of soon to collapse buildings and beggers.
Kuala Lumpur is alright but nothing special compared to Tokyo & Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is not only concrete, its surrounded by green mountains and is has beaches nearby.

A lot of people are mentioning Pyongyang. Has anyone actually been there? I am so intrigued by North Korea.
