I am going to say Ashington. I remember stopping in Ashington once on the way up to Northumberland and I just thought "Poor bastards who live here". It was an absolute shit hole. Seriously, if I quantum leaped into a person living in Ashington I would just do myself in.

Where is the biggest shit hole you have ever been?

I've been lucky to have travelled around a bit but mostly to the touristy bits in Europe and north America and had the chance to have a day trip to Tijuana, Mexico - just across the border from San Diego, USA.

When we crossed into Mexico the tourist map we were given showed the town centre about a mile walk away.  Everybody seemed to want to get there by taxi and the queue was massive so I decided a nice stroll would be a better option.  How wrong was I.

What a massive difference in the riches and infrastructure of America and this large Mexican city.

First time I've seen poverty first hand and I kind of get why so many people around the world want to get into countries like ours.

Even saying all this Tijuana was a modern built up city, in a westernised county so God knows what real shit holes are out there in the worlds poor countries?

Nice answer Sluffy. That sounded pretty dangerous walking it in those sort of places. Mexico sounds a proper dangerous place.

I have heard that places like Liberia, Guyana, Papua New Guinea, etc have really terrible shit holes with enormous poverty and crime.

I didn't feel threatened at all, just more of a shock as to the poverty behind the scenes.

I guess we just take for granted that even the laziest scrounger in this country will still be provided with a home, food and money by the state - ie us the taxpayers.

Bit different when there is no handouts and those without much have to fend for themselves.

You can see why when people have nothing that getting involved with the drug cartels (Mexico) or maybe those who feel disenfranchised in Syria/Iraq - Islamic State, seems to be the obvious way to go.

Rotterdam closely followed by London.

I don't really like cities

Coventry is the worst town I've ever been to in my life. And I've travelled a fair bit.

I'm sure some of the most deprived areas of Mexico are more salubrious than Breightmet. It seems a few people are getting agitated about The Rocket being pulled down.

Why not just keep the pub and demolish the rest of Breightmet instead.

Coventry's absymal. The football league we used to play in ended up taking Coventry teams so I got to tour some of it's worst areas. Wolverhampton is pretty shitty too.

I ended up staying a couple of nights in Sunny Beach Bulgaria whilst Inter railing, seriously horrible place.

Went to Istanbul many years ago, the contrast between rich and poor is next door. Took a wrong turn and found it rather intimidating, never set foot in Turkey since that holiday, and no inclination to do so.

Havana's a weird one.

Fascinating place and I really enjoyed it but large parts of it are properly shit.

Like Beirut with more cigars.

This is the view from the rooftop terrace of our hotel:

Where is the biggest shit hole you have ever been? Hotel-parque-central-large-city-view

If you look carefully in the background on the left, you can just about make out a block of flats with no external walls.

But with people living in them.....

that is unbelievable.  is it like proper slums?

Yeah.

Abject poverty.

We were drinking Mojitos in the bar one minute then standing open-mouthed at the poverty 2 minutes later.

And it's not an act for the tourists.

The rep said to us "If you leave the hotel, you're ok for about half a mile straight ahead to the Capitol Building, about 500 yards if you go left and about 200 if you take a right. In fact, I'd recommend you stick to the main road down to the Malecon (the prom) and don't turn off it. And don't hang around too long down there on your own. And definitely get back before dark. Have a great day!"

You soft bastard, you stop in your bedroom at your computer like I do in mine!
Despite the fact I can give him 30 years, the forum "cock" today declined to call me a cnut to my face. Sort of blows that theory out the window?! Very Happy

If you think I want to waste my Saturday trekking across London to meet a forum character who's scared of foreign people you're sadly mistaken. 

Enjoy your trip, hope it doesn't get too intimidating for you.

Never had a problem in Havana, one of the most interesting and vibrant cities I've ever visited. Wink
I do know what you mean though, it's untidy and the hassle you have to go through just to get a bottle of water is both surreal and amusing.

Hahaha how can you call me soft?! You're scared of anybody who isn't English must be very fragile.

And by the way if you only have 30 years on me you can't keep using your generation to excuse your views! You're not that old SK.
