Lisbon is not what it is cracked up to be. It has a jaded hipster vibe, at least in the foreigner area, and the food selections aren't great. There are much better places in Portugal, and I don't think Lisbon represents the country well. Locals say it's foreigners raising the prices of everything. In part, it could be that. However, the locals are also the ones voting in higher taxation with their socialist politicians when sales tax is already a ridiculous 23%. Portugal is a nice country and t⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 28 Mbps ×
Bangkok is a really nice city. I lived 2 weeks in Bangkok and it was a good trip ! People are very nice, smiling and the cost is affordable. Some beautifuls temple, gardens, market etc. Chinatown is a place to visit, and Bangkok is globally clean !⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 17 Mbps ×
I've been hanging out in Berlin on and off for 30 years. It is very safe for women. It is much friendlier than it used to be. There are loads of vegan restaurants now. The nightlife and specially jazz clubs are amazing! I have an excellent apartment to rent out in Wedding - which used to have a boring reputation but now is very cool.⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 40 Mbps ×
Istanbul was a terrible experience for me, and in more ways than one. 99% of people do not speak a single word of English, which makes every interaction exhausting. It does not help that Turkish people are short-tempered and get frustrated pretty quickly. Ubers are annoying, they keep canceling on you and it makes going somewhere such a hassle. Regular taxis are notorious for being scammers. Even an Uber driver tried to scam me by asking me to pay by cash even though I was already paying by⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 6 Mbps ×
How did you guys classified Penge as rich? It is one of the worst neighbourhood I have ever been in London, the ammount of people I know that have been robbed there is appalling.⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 16 Mbps ×
One of the best cities in Europe. Beautiful, wide streets, perfect weather. Huge tech scene & everything you can imagine. Food is next level. You can take the train and in 20 mins you will be in a nice uncrowded beach. The airport is a massive hub to go anywhere. FC Barcelona, huge huge football atmosphere. Tons of beautiful coworkings. Internet is ultra fast. Prices are expensive, but so is everything right now :(⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 21 Mbps ×
I visited Prague on more than one occasion and tried something new each time. I really wanted to enjoy it, but unfortunately it turned out to be one of my least favourite cities. Perhaps it was just me, but there was an overwhelming sense of distrust and dislike towards foreigners, you have to try pretty hard to blend in if you want to experience the life of a local & avoid the tourism. I met some wonderful people and and there’s some cool communities to be part of, but another extended stay⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 20 Mbps ×
I've lived in New York City - Brooklyn - for over 20 years. For visiting tourists, the best neighborhood to stay in is NOT Bushwick. Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Ft. Green or Brooklyn Heights is preferable. Plenty of good transportation in those areas - subway, buses or Uber. Easy access to beaches in Long Island and New Jersey. There's plenty to do in NYC. Great restaurants, Broadway plays (!), and in the summer you frequently can catch a free concert.⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 31 Mbps ×
I am a Greek living abroad just the last couple of years. I accidentally discovered this page and noticed the comments below. What I can recommend to people considering living in Athens is to explore places a bit outside of the city center. I agree with people that there are many areas very close to the city center that are dirty and perhaps not very safe to walk around at night. Explore areas like Glyfada, Voula, Kifisia, Marousi, Psychiko, Marousi and you will be amazed with how different it i⭐️ All 💵 Cost 📡 😀 Fun 👮 Safety 0 9 Mbps ×
