Now what the worst city, town or even country you have ever been to ?
 
Now I have seen a few places where I did feel unsafe I have to say at least even beaten up in places .
 
 
Now Fitzroy Crossing in Northern Australia was something else wild west really , never got into trouble but got out of there within minutes .
 
When I was working in San Fran for a removal firm I had one move where this guy was moving out of the projects , I really did think I could be killed for a table and two chairs .
 
Was in Cambodia in the early 90s and was told not to go out after dark otherwise we may never see you again , hey I got the hint .
 
Anyone else .

La Boca in Buenos Aires. I thought the rest of the city was fine but that area was seriously dodgy.

Tegucigalpa - Honduras. One of the murder capitals of the world. Lots of slums and punters wandering around the city with machetes. I never really felt safe there.

Passed through Watts in East L.A. & our taxi broke down in the Tenderloin area of San Francisco. Was absolutely sh*tting myself in those places but no one said anything to us. Being the only 2 white people on a public bus through a black neighbourhood in L.A. where this fella was ranting about big bad white people to the bus driver LOL. Noone in fairness said anything to us.
 
What we call a rough estate here is Disneyland compared to the U.S. You've a serious chance of being shot to death for the even the slightest of things.

Grimsby is the most horrible place I have experienced in the UK. The only place I have been a week before Christmas where they didn't even have any council/city decorations or Christmas lights up, not even a tree. There's also an element of your sister is your mother, your father is your brother about the locals too. 

The area around McCarthy's Irish bar in Cleveland is rough as fook. Couldn't get a cab for ages and about six different people started following up at various points. Didn't help that my two mates and I were hammered as well.

Around Anfield a few years ago before they did up the new stand sticks out also. I'm told it looks a lot better now.

Askeaton in Limerick is terrible too.

That sounds brilliant, I was going to Blundell on Good Friday, might go for Xmas now. f**king lights were being put up here last week.Angry

You are correct An C., Bandon is a kip!
When dividing places into kips you have to factor in the local character too, Hornet may not like this but I preferred Luton To Watford as anything could happen in Luton and Watford is the sort of place that feels like Royston Vasey. Was in Stevenage recently, felt like I was in some Dystopian drama. Every building looked thesame and it had completely sucked the life out of the locals.
I'm me and nobody else; and whatever people think I am or say I am, that's what I'm not, because they don't know a bloody thing about me.
