Overrated?

This time again, what's the most overrated or underrated place you've been to?

>Overrated
Barcelona. It's so chock-full with trash people it renders many attractions downright unenjoyable.

>Underrated
Copenhagen. Liked it more than Stockholm or Oslo, almost as much as Amsterdam, but it flies under many radars.

Reminder: overrated doesn't mean worst, underrated doesn't mean best.

    >Sucre, Bolivia
    Beautiful old town, not globohomosexual AT ALL, super clean, sort of fancy but in a really nice way, very nice amenities and also at a manageable altitude compared to its other Bolivian peer cities.

    Not gonna waste my time on overrated. We all know them.

        It was pretty chill for me honestly. Found a great hostel with a great social atmosphere and just had a lot of great nights that weren't too crazy. I'm sure you could find that though. The coke situation in Bolivia is pretty subdued overall.

      i think they just know what they can exploit for tourism and make it easy for people to do it. this also keeps people out of normal life in kyoto and funnels tourists from zone to zone. it is efficient and makes life in kyoto not a bad thing for kyoto natives.

        I found in places like Barcelona and Prague, that it's so saturated, there's nothing to uncover, and people don't give a frick. There's no warmth or humanity, you're just another line on the balance sheet.

        >Taking a Tuktuk around the outside parts of the city, weaving between traffic and watching an entirely different world pass you by

        >Getting lost in old Islamic Cairo, one of the most cyberpunk Midgar slum tier places I've been to
        >walking around the sheer chaos of the crowds of Khan El Khalili market
        >Walking around an abandoned Ottoman palace bang in the centre of the city, with no homosexual regulations
        > Smoking shisha and playing backgammon in the middle of the street on beautifully warm evenings
        >Driving around in taxis on a Friday morning as everybody is praying, and feeling like you have the city to yourself before watching it erupt into life as it all ends
        >Sitting on terraces overlooking the city and having that weird feeling of watching 20+ million people going about their way below you

        Seriously, once you get past the filter, theres based moments to be had in Cairo. There's something about the aesthetic and feel which makes you feel as if you're in an RPG. If I were to write a fantasy, so much would be inspired from this city.

            There was almost nobody there who wasn't Russian. In London there are many white britons, but in Talinn I had a hard time even asking for directions in English - had to use my (very bad) Russian (zdrastvitse, izvinitse, ... gde eta ulitsa [...] ... spasiba, spasiba bolshoj)

            I didn't find them malicious or unpleasant otherwise, they were just bad at English and quite surprised I spoke Russian, but friendly. There were some Russian restaurants, stores, and cafes (Cafe Narva for example) and they were clean, normal, etc. Not like in London where they can be quite dirty, strange smell of spices, etc.

            What? You are one deluded butthurt russian.

            I am not Russian. If anything, you're the butthurt ones - I point out that Talinn is greatly overrated and people jump to the defense of ... Estonia, as if the only reason anyone could find a flaw with it is that they are Russian themselves.

            Maybe Russians are over-policed?

            This is also true, yes. They are making pretty serious efforts to wipe out the Russian language entirely.

            Also they live in special areas, and these areas are covered up. To go from the airport to the city centre, the bus goes through Lasnamäe, a Russian-majority district. But there are no stops there. Despite there being things to do and see, it is as if they want to hide it from tourists.

Germans can't into punk without coming off sounding like an HR manager. And to top it all off, it's in ENGLISH. There is so much English and American pop culture worship everywhere to an unbearable degree. The place has zero magic, yet it is lauded as some Austin-esque weirdo playground. It is not.

    I'd say in Korea hiking is underrated by travelers. No one thinks to go there and hike up mountains, but if you do, you'll meet many locals doing so.

    I also think fee people venture out from major cities that are not resorts. Okay everyone does Bangkok and Phi Phi, Bali, Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Amsterdam, Budapest...what about the rest? There is more to countries and if you don't really see the country and talk to the people it's like you went there just to say you did

        Travel bragging sucks. The only people who care about your time spent in some rarely visited place are people who are interested in visiting it themselves, and would like some pointers.
        >unless you actually live there
        Another false dichotomy of superiority. People who live in a foreign place tend to be full of their own biases. Their local knowledge is valuable, but disregard their opinions. Travelers who visit numerous places tend to be less biased and more likely to give an evaluation of a place that is both useful for other visitors and reasonably unbiased. However, their local knowledge tends to be very limited.

        I do not maintain a residence in my home country outside of work periods, so technically, I reside wherever I am staying at the moment.

    Overrated:
    Hong Kong - Very expensive, pushy people and actually boring without much to do except go shopping. Economy feels like it is for Russian bawds to go after they made their money from some rich arab shitting on their breasts in Dubai
    Underrated :
    Taiwan - Friendly people, the East Coast is beautiful, easy to navigate and get around.
