1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The people in this thread posting places like Springfield and Huntsville and Jackson, Mississippi are missing the point of this thread. Those aren't travel destinations and no one in their right mind would expect them to be interesting.

    ^ Being in Canada and not yet traveled extensively throughout the US, I was thinking, "Why haven't I heard of a lot of these places?" Thanks for the clarification, L-B.

    Shenzhen, China - interesting to walk around a huge metropolis that didn't exist as early as 15yrs ago, but the city doesn't have that much to offer besides Mission Hills.

    Macau - unless I need to purchase a pair of his and hers diamond encrusted rollies, used and more than likely fake.

    Before lurking/joining SF I would have said HK, but now I must visit The Armourey, tailors and probably other places I have yet to learn about.

    If you don't want to go back to HK, you might as well just kill yourself right not because you don't love life. That place is awesome to visit and remains my favorite city on the planet. Riding the train in from the Airport all the way to Causeway Bay and stepping out onto the crowded, muggy street for the first time remains one of my most vivid and treasured travel experiences.

    I have no love for Hong Kong. I tend to lump HK and Shanghai together as cities that a person should visit once and only once.

    Lb, please share with me how you've obtained the ability to determine my passion for life based on a geographical destination I'd not like to revisit. If you had asked me why, and I responded with, "hk has way too many exciting and adventurous things to do and places to see whereas I'm more interested in being sullen in my hotel room which hk's hotels do not encourage.", your remark might have some validity. Don't ask me why, for I'll spit in your eye.

    Hong Kong and Shanghai seemed totally different to me. I mean, the difference between HKers and mainland Chinese is like night and day. One visit seems like enough for Shanghai, but I would go back to HK in a second, wouldn't even mind living there for a little while if I had the opportunity.

    I live in Sydney and will never come back unless my mother wanted me to visit.


    Oh and LA, Las Vegas, Houston, never again.

    Yeah, Shanghai and HK are two different worlds. I feel the opposite of you though. I'm in Shanghai again for probably the 15-20th time in the past couple years and plan on continuing to come back regularly. On the other hand, I have no real desire to go back to HK. I did have a good time when I was there, but there isn't really anything else I have a desire to see.

    Since it's that time of year again, I'll say that I have no desire to ever go back to Pamplona, especially during San Fermin.

    I have never heard anybody dislike Sydney........

    Do you have any "big metro cities" that you like at all?

    Genting Highlands.

    +1, the casino and themepark are really not that special.

    India and Bangladesh. I will never set foot into these two countries again for as long as I live.

    I like Indian food, so that may be the only thing that motivates me to go visit there. According to Tripadvisor, they also have one of the best hotel in the world as well......

    Cairns - the barrier reef is dead, the locals are rednecks and the weather is way too hot and humid

    The Gold Coast - more land whales than good tail, way too many land whales in bikinis

    The Blue Mountains - why exactly is this place ever touted as a destination? To this day I still have no clue.

    Hiroshima - less exciting than Tokyo, worse food than Osaka, Kyoto has the lion's share of historical sights, snaggle-toothed broads

    Xi-an - saw the terracotta warriors, had no idea that was all there was to see in this dead town. Spent nights there holed up in my hotel room alternated with praying that the food I was eating was not actually made from rat meat and that the utensils were cleaned by more than cold tap water.

    Beijing- dirty ass city with police on every corner, way too many tourists wearing stupid caps, Olympic venues were overrated, Forbidden city was swamped

    Tianjin- like Beijing, only dirtier.

    Hong Kong - aside from shopping, not much else to this soulless city besides eat

    Guangzhou - like Hong Kong, except dirtier and more likely to get shanked
