    Battle of the Worst Places to go on Holiday

    Simple concept, I want to see if it has any support.. I'm willing to outsource work to a victim if there is enough demand..

    You are told you have a holiday/business trip, and you have to go to these destinations.. Which would you least want to end up in? Think this could provide some interesting debate and we could learn a bit about some really average places.

    Some nominations

    Mogadishu
    Port-au-Prince
    Baghdad
    Basra
    Harare
    Lagos
    Ahmedabad
    Kingston
    Riyadh
    Murmansk
    Pyongyang
    New Orleans
    Beirut
    Blackpool
    Dzherzhinsk
    Karachi
    Bogota
    Tripoli
    Khartoum

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The worst holiday anyone has ever described to me was a trip to Tehran.

    Belfast can't be far off either.

    I'd love to go to Tehran, one of the biggest cities on earth, and with a ski resort nearby, right in the Arab world.. What did they hate about it?

    I was just about to nominate Belfast actually.. Especially if it all kicks off again in Northern Ireland

    Her Dad's from Tehran, so she's half-Iranian. She just said there's nothing there, the heat's stifling, everything revolves around their fanatical religious beliefs and the people are absolute ****s.

    Belfast isn't the worst place to go really. The girls are shocking, the weather's ****e and there's not a lot to do but put up with our horrific accents but there's a lot of much worse places too.

    I used to live with an Iranian couple for a month, they loved South Africa, was the first time they could do what they wanted.. By the end of the month they had brought over their family, one of them tried to go into the maids room at night for a bit of a late night smashing, and the other one got so drunk he threw up all over the shower, and then crashed his car into a wall whilst trying to do a runner..

    Haha yeah I remember reading about that. This girl's not quite like that, she's lived in Ireland all her life, so her reaction on visiting Iran was quite the reverse. It was the first time in her life that she couldn't do anything she wanted because of a few (*insert Islamophobic remarks*) in Iran.
