Top 10 ugliest cities in the world

UCityGuides.com , a website that bills itself as "the Ultimate Urban Guide for the Modern Traveler" , has made a list of the "ten least attractive of the world's capitals and major cities. If you live in any of these places, you'll surely disagree, but here is our unbiased list:"

http://www.ucityguides.com/cities/10...the-world.html

1- Guatemala City - Guatemala
"This fumes-and-crime-filled city is the capital of an otherwise beautiful country. It looks more like a slum than a capital city, with most buildings appearing on the verge of collapse."

2- Mexico City, Mexico
"It's currently known as one of the world's most dangerous cities, but even if it was a safe haven, it still would not be a very inviting city. It's one of the world's most polluted and there isn't much to look at. "

3- Amman, Jordan - "The capital of the country with one of the world's most fascinating historical sites (magical Petra) should simply be an arrival and departure point on your travel itinerary. Unless you enjoy dirty, chaotic streets and ugly buildings looking like they're crumbling on top of each other."

4- Caracas, Venezuela

5- Luanda, Angola

6- Chisinau, Moldova

7- Houston, USA

8- Detroit, USA

9- Sao Paulo, Brazil

10- Los Angeles, USA

The website also listed the 10 most beautiful cities in the world, heavy with the usual European suspects:

1- Venice
2- Paris
3- Prague
4- Lisbon
5- Rio de Janeiro
6- Amsterdam
7- Florence
8- Rome
0- Budapest
10- Bruges

Re: Top 10 ugliest cities in the world

I've been to Houston and I dont think its that bad and its been voted as one of the best cities in the USA to live in a couple times from varying sources if I'm not mistaken. Also, how could 3 US cities makes the ugly list but not one could make the most beautiful?

These lists always skew European. I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't think LA is that bad, certainly not one of the 10 ugliest cities in the world.

Re: Top 10 ugliest cities in the world

^ Glasgow? I think Glasgow is quite underrated. I much prefer it to Edinburgh.

Zagreb, Bern and Kuala Lumpur are probably the ugliest cities that I've been to - at least that I can think of off-hand but each city had at least something going for it.

Re: Top 10 ugliest cities in the world

It's always tough to compare cities worldwide in view of a certain aspect, especially when it comes to something as subjective as beauty or ugliness.

The stereotypical development of a European city is completely different to an Arabic, American or Eastern Asian one. Fact is that most of the cities classified as ugly had such an enormous increase in population over relatively few years (some of them still have) that the urban planners at that time (if there were any) of course put practicality and functionalism over aesthetics.

Moreover, even the most 'beautiful' city has its dark corners no one wants to live or visit, but then again these are not listed on any tourist guide, anyway.

Re: Top 10 ugliest cities in the world

I like LA. I do find Houston hideous, but then Dallas and Houston always hate on each other while Austin laughs at both of us.

Re: Top 10 ugliest cities in the world

I would not say LA is ugly, especially if you consider Santa Monica and Venice Beach part of it.

Definitely Cardiff or Birmingham should be in that list, at least regarding Europe.

Re: Top 10 ugliest cities in the world

LA is appropriately placed, Houston though? I've never been but I hear there are lots of potholes in the roads

Detroit is a sad situation to say the least
