And then... what places/towns in all those countries you visited, what did you see and how long did you stay in each place? I also would like to know what did you disliked there. Be more specific, please
Haha, no kidding. People listing simply "Russia" or "Eastern Europe". These are incredibly diverse regions with a lot of different demographics and cultural/scenic varities.

To all of you who listed Singapore, I wonder if you have ever lived there or even set foot there.

It's in my opinion one of the most dynamic, diverse and innovative cities there is. 4 main cultures, 4 official languages, countless races and religions, etc. not to mention an exceptional quality of life.

Anyway, to each his own.
Boring countries for me would include Canada, Austria (!!!), Germany (though I haven't been to Berlin), Scandinavian countries, and Russia. Yes I've been to all those places. And yes I have a strong negative bias toward cold climates (and vice versa)

That's the exact problem of these threads - to each his own though I'm not sure anyone would say that N. Korea is an exciting place

Interesting topic! But objectivity 0. How you can make a list of boring countries do not visiting them. And judging by the post, not knowing about them? Yes, and with the geography of the problems. and if it is not about the country? Central America-it's like? this country? say the number of countries that? And all they boring?

I've seen your posts other pages and it's clear your a complete moron. English cities do not look alike at all. Cambridge looks different to Lancaster and Bath looks different to Norwich. People grow bananas in the south,and purleasee,english houses look the same? Are you blind or just idiotic?

Different strokes for different folks. I do not think any country is boring, but there are areas within the countries that are.

A person's definition of boring is different, I have ran across people who think London, UK is boring, yet think Knoxville, TN is an exciting place. I know people who think their small, Nebraska town is the most exciting place in the world, yet you would have to march me there by gun point to ever reside in such a place. I have come across so many examples, there is no way to even have a thread about what is the most boring or exciting country, except based on very broad generalities that everyone and their brother will pick apart. For example, I find the US a boring country, except for a few bright spots on the coasts and the national parks.

No offense at all. I agree with the ones in bold in a big way. Some of those places (maybe not Central America because of the weather) have huge issues with depression and alcoholism.

I think the Scandinavians would find a way to "fine" or "jail" me for being politically incorrect, that is, if showing me to the door had been unsuccessful.

Personaly, if there are mountains, rocks, and water somewhat nearby, maybe a bar and restauraunt or two I would never get bored anywhere. Never really understood what is so exciting in a city. I like to do the city, cultural stuff maybe 1 or two times a year.
