    Re: Which country/countries would you not holiday and/or visit?

    Been to Mexico and Egypt , no problems although we drove through Dahab and would avoid that if ever went back .
    Just been to Dubai and enjoyed it nice city break lots to see and do .Glad posters seem to like Sri Lanka am off to there in a while . Done the States , Greek islands Spain etc but somehow Turkey has never appealed to me.

    As a general rule, if it ends with -ia or -stan then I'm not interested in going there.

    So, the people in deepest Wiltshire know what dog food tastes like.

    South and Central America, just about all of Africa, the Middle East and anywhere cold. None of the 'stans and probably most of Russia. Some of Eastern Europe and Turkey.

    Some of the choices are down to stability and security and others are just because they don't appeal, e.g. one of my work colleagues commutes from the Czech Republic. Seen plenty of pictures of the countryside around his home - yawnsville...

    I'd avoid the middle east and China, although I would like to visit Israel.
    Other than that I'm up for anywhere, love Turkey, going back next year. Other 'bucket list' destinations are India, Japan, Moscow, Mexico/Brazil

    I thought the food in Turkey was fantastic.
    Some of the people can be a bit much tho.

    That's a shame, Cumbria is absolutely beautiful.

    India, China, Africa, other Far East countries. Love America and am looking forward to seeing Australia when I retire. Off to Mexico in February for the first time.

    USA.

    Been to SF a couple of times for work, not keen, and vegas about five times for work/poker tournaments, and it's safe enough there. feels like a closed environment as you cross from one hotel to another.

    But, the whole guns everywhere, aggressive border agents & police, all just puts me off, plus their beer and "pubs" are pish.

    Also not keen on China, horrific food is just the start.
