Worst first world country you visited

It's easy shittalking the low hanging fruits like India, Haiti, Egypt.

But: what's been the most underwhelming first world country you've visited?

    Probably France, it was not underwhelming, it was just shit. Obviously France is huge and I only saw small part of it but what I saw, people, culture, it was just garbage all of it.

        It is literally that with sighsee. I visited expecting some shithole, but instead I found what was probably the most spectacular city I have ever been to in terms of architecture, culture and food. With that said yes, there are lots of signs of decay and it's past it's prime as the most romantic city in the world, but I experienced the complete opposite of the Paris syndrome. I went in December, week before Christmas and I was there with my ex who speaks decent French. I avoid tourist traps like plague, so maybe that helped. Most of the sights except for Sacre Coeur de Montmartre were fairly empty. Touts avoid me generally because I don't have the look of a stupid tourist on me. I didn't see much trash anywhere either. I walked out almost 10km to city outside of city center to the South (no idea what part of Paris it was) for my hotel every night I was there and I literally had no problems and never felt unsafe even if it got more noticeably suburban. I'd move to Paris in a heartbeat if I was sure I could afford it.

          thanks, i hate how many backwater no culture/personality losers infest sighsee, makes it impossible to have a real discussion or unbiased opinion these days and the worst part is these gays think its just "sighsee culture" when this place was never like this at all before it became known for being edgy just because it didn't ban anyone who said moron or it allowed gore threads

            Have you been to Paris yourself?

            Yes, there's bit too much of hive mind on some things here, I find it especially weird that a travel board seems to have a hard time with Paris, tb h the biggest issue of going to Paris seems like being a dumb tourist. It must feel like a massive let down if you're expecting Disneyland. Most people seem to visit in the summer when the heat is too much and most of the locals are vacationing, so it probably doesn't help either that pretty much all the people in the city center are just tourists being corralled into dumb touristic things.

            I didn't like how military police were everywhere, France definitely has a big problem with terrorism.

        There is literally nothing wrong with Paris that isn't wrong with any megacity on earth. It has immigrants, and a certain amount of crime, hustlers in the biggest tourist-y places but it's still nowhere as bad as anything described.

        It is literally that with sighsee. I visited expecting some shithole, but instead I found what was probably the most spectacular city I have ever been to in terms of architecture, culture and food. With that said yes, there are lots of signs of decay and it's past it's prime as the most romantic city in the world, but I experienced the complete opposite of the Paris syndrome.

I'd move to Paris in a heartbeat if I was sure I could afford it.

        This guy absolutely gets it. Paris isn't about looking at people. It's about looking at the sights and extrapolating its former glory from the cultural vestiges (or current products of it), visiting the interesting places and overall enjoying the good aspects of it. It is obviously not a city for everyone, but everytime a complaint is raised about Paris, it's usually something that can be applied to literally any city with more than 1 million people in the West.

        I have noticed that the crushing majority of the people shitting on Paris are actually French themselves, because they're the equivalent of flyover state inhabitants who have big issues understanding what a megacity in the West is like, and are being extremely subjective about their judgement because it's really the only city they've ever visited.

        The other ones are retarded 4chanfags who think visiting a city is about looking at people's faces, taking a deep breath and smile of relief as you realize all of them are your flavor of white.

        The "Paris Syndrome" the japs suffer from is really just a combination of both because these fucking retards never had to encounter anything really scary aside from some loser who'd pull his dick out and ultimately be harmless.

          The funny thing about the immigrants in Paris is that they don't live in the city center. Most are there to work. It's way too expensive to rent anywhere close to the city center.

          French people get a lot of hate, but I actually like them. I went to a fully packed restaurant, me and my gf were probably the only foreigners, so I knew the food would be good. Oddly enough lots of restaurants in France really seat people super close. My gf who is Italian found it weird as you'd never do that in Italy. It's considered awkward lol.

            Paris actually got better, not worse since then. The reason being the inner city got far too expensive and gentrified for nogs to live in. Chateau Rouge and surroundings is the only place where you may find in nigs in Paris proper, not the suburbs.

                These are usually around the edge between proper Paris and suburbs, and more specifically in the north-east where crack is easily available. If you want to see morons and pajeets fresh from whatever shithole they’re from, or avoid these, then you shall see these in Porte de la Villette, around Porte de la Chapelle (not as many as before though) and possibly somewhere in between these two places.

    So for me its:

    >United Kingdom
    Well, uh, known for its weather.
    British rowhouses, which most of the country lives in, are quite literally shit, combining the worst aspects of having to maintain your own house and the cramped aspect of a flat.
    Only London, Oxford, Cambridge and Scotland and offer something worthwhile. The average English city like Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham is grim.

    >Sweden
    Extremely grim weather. It has nice summers, but outside of that, it's just unsuited for human habitat imo.
    Has some of the worst ghettoes I've experienced in Europe, if not THE worst. Yes, worse than France.
    Cities are okay, but nothing special. Even the historical architecture in Sweden isn't all that captivating.
    The whole spirit of the place seemed off and unappealing to me.

    Only thing good about Sweden was that average people have a good standard of living and you could tell.

    >Spain
    To add a sunny country into the mix, so it doesn't seem like I'm just complaining about the weather.
    Spanish cities are LITERALLY commieblock hives. I am not exaggerating. I do not believe any other first world country (other than city states like Hong Kong or Singapore) is THIS reliant on cramped high-rises to house its populace.
    Quite some visually perceivable poverty.
    Spanish countryside/nature SHOULD be God-tier in theory due to how many biomes it has, but just consider that most of the land is literally yellow nothingness and the provinces suffers heavily from depopulation.
    Barcelona is just as bad as Paris in terms of immigrants.

    I fully acknowledge all of these places are still vastly better than something like the Middle East and wide parts of Eastern Europe and I understand why people kill for a chance to live there.

      It's still a very good place to live in and worth the travel, objectively. But I didn't get the hype. It's like a wealthy German province in terms of appeal.

      Positively surprising:
      >Belgium
      For all the negative memes it gets, I've found a country with God-tier historical architecture, a fairly wealthy population, cities almost lacking commieblocks, an interesting cuisine influenced by both Germany (meat and beer) and France (high cuisine and cheeses), lots of European history concentrated in a small strip of land.

        Does it have nice cities and shit ones? Both. Neither are as memorable as those in other countries.
        Is the weather good? No, but it's not Scandinavia/UK-tier bad either.
        Does it have many extremely poor and run-down areas? Few, in my experience, but neither did it have the stunning display of wealth that London has anywhere.
        Was the population nice or nasty? Can't tell, they're just whatever and boring.

        That said, a Germany that wasn't bombed and cucked by the consequences of WW2 would probably be hard to rival as a country in terms of overall appeal.

        I live in Switzerland, and think your impressions are fair. I don’t find the cities as grim as you seem to—I live on the poorer side of a city with several unattractive industrial districts, and can assert that even the crummy parts are generally relatively clean and safe compared to their counterparts nearly everywhere else. They are plagued with an overarching tendency towards bland minimalist architecture for the exteriors of recent (1960s-1990s) builds; most Swiss apartment-dwellers don’t care what the outsides of their buildings look like, so all the cozy/attractive aspects are inside and many buildings look almost like commieblocks. And rich bored teenagers like to spray paint walls. But they’re nice inside and I give my city very high marks for quality of life even though only a minority of neighborhoods are beautiful and there’s little reason for a tourist to visit. I think the ONLY RURAL SWITZERLAND IS REAL SWITZERLAND posters that sometimes stop by are both wrong and fucking nuts, but admit that for a visitor the cities shouldn’t be the major draw.

        Also agree that people more often than not are unfriendly, particularly in German-speaking cantons, but some of that is due to secret but widespread shyness. I have good Swiss friends now, but it took them a couple of years to open up to me.

        Also, Swiss food is inferior to that of its neighboring countries (except Germany, with which it’s probably a draw; Austria at least has schnitzel and better pastry/café options), while costing 40%-200% more.

        It's easy shittalking the low hanging fruits like India, Haiti, Egypt.

        But: what's been the most underwhelming first world country you've visited?

        I don’t like Germany much; it’s not actively offensive, but I find it dull and a lot less efficient than its reputation, and the food does nothing for me. But my bias is partially because I live in German-speaking Switzerland, so home has a lot of things in common with DE. I shop there all the time, a couple of my best friends are Germans, but would never consider it for a vacation.

            The Romande (French Switzerland) is marginally less uptight and unfriendly than German speaking areas, but it’s still a nation of fusspots. Some better food options but nothing compared to France. Numerous excellent local wines that don’t get exported, although German-speaking Switzerland has its share of them as well.

            My wife and I joke that Ticino is either the most anal part of Northern Italy or the least anal part of Switzerland. Picture a Northern Italy where everything is clean and functional, things cost at least twice as much. the architecture has a Germanic note, and strangers might scold you. Some lovely lakeside areas and some of the country’s most attractive (tiny) cities and towns. People in tourist areas are mostly close to bilingual in Italian and German, which is amusing. My kids often trip up and order stuff in German, and invariably get effective German replies.

          Also live in Switzerland, can say this isn't an unfair assessment overall.

          The nature is a main thing - you can be somewhere beautiful in like 2 hours max from anywhere.

          Honestly it feels a bit like a computer simulation: even in the grimmer industrial districts it's still cleaner and better run than almost anywhere else. Coming from America you do realize your home country doesn't really work lol. Anyways there is a strangeness about it (strange because of it's mix of bland, beautiful, and clean) that is appealing. It feels very peaceful and remote.

        Yeah, Madrid was my favorite city in Spain by far and had relatively few nonwhites for an European capital. Only thing it lacked the sea, which is probably the main appeal of Spain.

            So for me its:

            >United Kingdom
            Well, uh, known for its weather.
            British rowhouses, which most of the country lives in, are quite literally shit, combining the worst aspects of having to maintain your own house and the cramped aspect of a flat.
            Only London, Oxford, Cambridge and Scotland and offer something worthwhile. The average English city like Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham is grim.

            >Sweden
            Extremely grim weather. It has nice summers, but outside of that, it's just unsuited for human habitat imo.
            Has some of the worst ghettoes I've experienced in Europe, if not THE worst. Yes, worse than France.
            Cities are okay, but nothing special. Even the historical architecture in Sweden isn't all that captivating.
            The whole spirit of the place seemed off and unappealing to me.

            Only thing good about Sweden was that average people have a good standard of living and you could tell.

            >Spain
            To add a sunny country into the mix, so it doesn't seem like I'm just complaining about the weather.
            Spanish cities are LITERALLY commieblock hives. I am not exaggerating. I do not believe any other first world country (other than city states like Hong Kong or Singapore) is THIS reliant on cramped high-rises to house its populace.
            Quite some visually perceivable poverty.
            Spanish countryside/nature SHOULD be God-tier in theory due to how many biomes it has, but just consider that most of the land is literally yellow nothingness and the provinces suffers heavily from depopulation.
            Barcelona is just as bad as Paris in terms of immigrants.

            I fully acknowledge all of these places are still vastly better than something like the Middle East and wide parts of Eastern Europe and I understand why people kill for a chance to live there.

            In terms of big eurropean cities Madrid feels like a Spanish ethnostate, the only realt group of visible migrants are Hispanics. Going near the Spanish royal palace and that plaza that overlooks the rest of the city was nothing I’d ever experience in nyc, just families and friends all Spanish hanging out and looking at the sunset together, couples proposing, etc.

      are there any countries that impressed you?

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        Yeah.

        >Belgium
        For the reasons stated above. Yeah, I realize many had other impressions or outright dismissed it as meme country, but in my heart, Belgium was a great European experience.

        >Luxembourg
        I realize tiny tax havens are borderline cheating, but it's just an all-around nice place. Great historical town, very nice villages with a mixture of German and French architecture, the good sides of French culture without the downsides.

        >Italy
        It's way past its historical peak, economic prospects for the young are bleak and the deep South can be a ridiculous Albania-tier shithole, but it's the #1 country worldwide in terms of architecture beauty, only France can compare. Cuisine is in no need of introduction and goes way deeper than what you perceive as a tourist. Tyrol/Alpine Italy is one of the best places on Earth.

        >Austria
        It's an upgraded, more sovlful Germany with mountains, cuisine, amazing nature, one of the greatest cities in Europe with Vienna, little not to like. Only thing I disliked was how wages are lower than Germany, while cost of living is the same or higher.

        Generally, Germany seems to be some cheater country: it's somehow CHEAPER than most of Europe, despite having better job prospects. But it's not as charming as many neighbors, I seldom was outright impressed.

          Germany is like the US of europe, it's in the middle, it's the vanilla euro country where people work, but contrary to americans, germans are uninviting and closed off and have in-group preference, so it's not that appealing for a foreigner to fit in.

            Germany seems boring as hell plus the language isn't as aesthetic or appealing as some of the other languages. It's great to learn if you like reading philosophy in original.

      This 100x, although I don’t know if you can consider any Gulf state as first world as the only first world thing about them is that they have alot of cash. They’re still mostly uncivilized, dumb as bricks, and cannot function without importing people from all over the world. Pathetic honestly.
      The worst thing about them is that despite being utter retards who just got lucky and had ancestor camel herders squat on huge oil reservoirs, they still treat outsiders like inferiors and run literal slavery circles with their kafala system.

      Yeah, Canada has to be one of the worst firstie countries. The only thing it has going for itself is being extremely spacious, so most boomers own large homes. But now that it cramps most of its youth into overpriced Toronto/Vancouver flats, even that appeal is gone.

      Zero culture, cities that seem like oversized shopping malls.
      While all Western countries are being replaced by immigrants, Canada is outright enthusiastic about the whole procedure.

        Depends where you go. I don't think any major city in Canada is friendly anymore, Toronto and Vancouver are really stuckup. People are still nice in more rural and small town areas, but it's mostly boomers.

    Ireland is a grim shithole, so is most of UK. Rest of the first world seems fine. I even liked Paris and Rome.

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      I'll elaborate a bit more. Ireland on whole I found unappealing. Dublin has some nice sights for a weekend trip, but all of it is ruined by how much of a shithole that city is. Just unsafe all around, with police doing absolutely nothing. People like to meme immigrants as some sort of a constant threat, and there's some truth to it, but Ireland was the only 1st world country where I was more worried about the local Irish than any shady looking immigrant. It has some nice nature, but otherwise the place is extremely boring. When they're not aggressive assholes, Irish are extremely self loathing and half of their identity is hating the English. For some reason they were excited about Brexit as if UK suffering economically won't affect them as well in a major way.

      Someone listed already why UK is shit earlier, but I'll add that Bath, Oxford and London city center are actually very nice places to visit and to live. But UK suffers from fairly awful people all around, Brits are extremely passive aggressive and annoying cunts typically. Food is quite grim too. Average kebab is absolute garbage compared to rest of the Europe. Native cuisine isn't much to write home about, crumpets and Bath bun are the only things I enjoyed. Fish and chips is alright, tb h I found it weird how despite being surrounded by the ocean they hardly eat much fish. Compare it to Spaniards who eat fish and seafood extensively and how half of their cuisine is based around it too, especially in coastal cities. Weather is indeed awful, it's great if you hate the sun. Average Brit is also quite ugly for some reason. Their women are gross.

      There are lots of things I miss about living in the UK though, but overall I don't miss the place.

    Too many so-called first world countries are so shitted up now, you can point to many areas that contradict the notion that the place is first world at all. You can argue that the first world doesn't exist anywhere anymore. If that's true then it's only getting worse... If you want a true first world experience then stick to limited areas of high net worth. But what you'll get are mostly vain and vacuous inhabitants - the guys wearing gold subs who will correct you and say, no it's a Rolex. But they're probably nice people, more or less. Safe and good food, hot and horny misbehaving daughters who know how to keep it on the DL; always present in that kind of community.
