Top Ten Worst Cities In the World

The Top Ten
1 Dhaka

Is it me or is this list just bad. Has anyone ever heard of San Pedro Sula? It is in Honduras and is in the middle of the drug trade between the USA and South America. There is a huge gang war going on, and they kill civilians all the time. Sure some of these cities are poor, dirty, and war stricken but not only is San Pedro Sula dirty and poor, with the GDP per capita 2,300 USD, but it also has over 3 murders AN HOUR. This place is seriously dangerous and on interviews people who have interviewed gang members have been told that if they walk around at night, they will probably die. Look up some documentaries on San Pedro Sula, and then see if your mind has changed.

I know Dhaka would be dirty but Bangladesh citizens might offended by that. Bangladesh is still poorest country in the world but still improving. I hope this city and Bangladesh grow well.

Densest city of the densest country in the world. Dirty city with cramped suburbs and gangs. People working in sweatshops etc... Fact is DHAKA IS THE WORST!

The ambulance can't even get to it's destination. Very bad traffic. Taxi journey took 2½ hours. It's a joke and the amount of scruffy people trying to rip you off. And bad pollution

2 Hackensack

Hackensack really is that of the historical worst county in the historical worst state in the U.S., look it up. It's worse than can be written about, you'd have to suffer here, read the reviews and search the Web and see why. Jeffrey Epstein was arrested at the Hackensack/Tetorboro airport near the Hackensack 'Justice Center' court house which is the one giving him all the trafficked children for his 800 flights that they know about, I'm sure much more. And the rest of the county and state are just as bad in every respect.

Hackensack Bergen County Court House is the center of the most corrupt local, County and State domestic and international terror, organized crime and State malfeasance and cruelty in the entire world. The worst most corrupt cruel and malicious city and people ever seen. So many suffering praying for the day this evil is removed from the world. Please pray with us that God will help all the people suffering from this corruption and malevolence and pray for all the stolen children and pray that we will be delivered from evil.

Horrific Hackensack Chief 'Family Court' Judge for the County recently ruled 'behavioral modification' with drugging of innocent healthy children in schools is'standard' and stated parents complaining must be delusional and unstable and abduct and torture their children and families. NJ Supreme Court Ruled Worst Segregated Schools in Country must Desegregate and Regionalize - Horrific Hackensack only made the Schools more Terrifying and Dangerous. Hackensack is the capital of Bergen County, New Jersey renowned for homing terrorists the evening before 9/11, FBI targetting Hackensack High School for ISIS Videos, Toturing and Forced Injecting the Most Dangerous Black Box Anti-Psychotics to Children and their Parents Trying to Protect them from the Worst School System in the US according to Rutger's Reports, UCLA Reports, ACLU Reports and Superior Appellate and New Jersey Supreme Court Rulings for over 20 Years. Parents of girls who are intelliigent, have great self-control and maturity ...more

Are you kidding me?

3 Detroit Detroit is the largest and most populous city in the U.S. state of Michigan. Located across from Windsor, Ontario, Canada on the Detroit River, Detroit had an estimated population of 672,662 in 2018.

Look, maybe not technically as bad as Nairobi Kenya or some other third world hell, but Detroit doesn't have an excuse. Every other city on this list (Besides London, which objectively can't be on the list) can blame war, or horrible poverty, or bad infrastructure for its inability to be a halfway descent city. Detroit though, used to be a world class city, perhaps the quintessential American city, where you could put in an honest days work and get a house with a white picket fence and 2.3 kids. Now it's a terrible place, with burnt out houses and ruined buildings. If I could sum up Detroit with one word it would be shame.

As a person who's actually visited Detroit, and therefore has a first-hand view of what it's like, I have to admit that I don't understand what you're talking about. Sure, I'm not into politics and don't listen to the news much, but from what I've experienced, it's a beautiful city with great attractions for older tourists (not much will entertain younger people). I've visited many, many times, but not once have I seen a dead body, crime, or even anything shady going on. Maybe it's because I only visit once in a while and for a very short period of time, but I don't see anything particularly wrong with it.
Before you make a biased and offending list like this, make sure you actually visit all the cities you're going to list. I don't think you understand that people living in this city have feelings, and can therefore be offended by this list. How would you feel if someone insulted your city and said it was horrible? Angry or sad? That's what I thought.

There is no way Detroit should be anywhere near the top 10! We have other war-ridden cities that could take this spot easily. And also, to those who think Detroit is ungoverned, you are dead wrong. They have a mayor, and the basic things a city should have. You may not see it, but Detroit has exited bankruptcy, and are currently making their way back as a great city.

All of you stop saying it is the worst when you never even been there you all here stuff on the news and things people say when some of you never been in it or even step a foot in it it is not that bad of a city I live there it has good and bad areas

4 Mumbai Mumbai is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. Mumbai lies on the Konkan coast on the west coast of India and has a deep natural harbour. In 2008, Mumbai was named an alpha world city. It has the highest number of millionaires and billionaires among all cities in India. Mumbai is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Elephanta Caves, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, and the city's distinctive ensemble of Victorian and Art Deco buildings.

Why? Why? Why? It is the financial capital of India..! It comes 1st in Worst cities list and comes 9th position in most powerful cities. Not at all satisfied with this list. Love to Mumbai!

I am living in Mumbai for 3 years. It has many shopping malls, buildings or it could be worst for its rain, garbage and crime but still I say its best in India.

I'm surprised Mumbai wasn't voted the number 1 best city because all the idiots in there that think that Mumbai is good when it is a dump

I've been to Mumbai. And when I stepped off the plane, I thought I was in a toilet because it smelled like it.

5 Karachi

Are you kidding me? Only because Pakistan has bomb blasts once in a while doesn't make it the 'Terrorist Hub'. Just like going out doesn't make you bad person and praying doesn't make you a good person.

Ridiculous karachi is not worst city. It has everything which a beautiful should have. Don't label it one of worst city we are best and we are Asian Tigers.

Today it so much hot in Karachi its 55 degree and over thousand people died with hot because of no electric powers

This ain't a joke,seriously karachi isn't a bad city. Just by some activities of some maniacs you cannot claim that it is a bad one!

6 Pyongyang Pyongyang or P'yŏngyang (평양시) is the capital and largest city of North Korea, or the Democratic People’s Republic Of Korea.

Everything you do could end you up in prison. The people are brainwashed. If you go there and your from South Korea, America or Japan, you will probably be tortured. plus horrid weather, freezing winters and hot, wet summers

Although it houses the largest stadium and hotel (I think) in the world, it's the capital of one of two countries with little GDP, revenue and a balanced economy (Somalia being second).

See that big pyramid in the center of that photo? It's been an empty shell since it was built 30 years ago.

This city will not be in the next 20 years if Kim keeps killing high level officals

7 Caracas

This should number 1. It’s one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Plus it was even ranked the murder capital of the world

Very poor and awful city due to maduros regime just a cappy 3rd world city

8 Mogadishu

Even before the war, the city was a hellhole, mainly because the city was the center of tyranny and oppression in Somalia

The heart of a stateless part of Africa.

Biggest hellhole in Africa

9 Napoli

Napoli is a horrible city, like nearly always in Italy.

Dirty, smelling bad, dark, polluted, chaotic, insecure, low style, like ruin, destroyed and Italian people do not speak anything else than Italian, slacker, impolite, lazy, arrogant, rude, they are always trying to rip you off.

The hotels are old and expensive, that everywhere in Italy, roads are dangerous.

Avoid this old fashion country.

I vote Napoli, but my vote can extend to all Italian cities. Every italian city, from north to south is in the same, pitiful conditions. Dirt, garbage in the streets, flock of people with no apparent job to crowd the streets, pick pockets and criminals everywhere, no public services... its is a scenario you can find in every city of Italy.

Napoli is the most beautiful city in the world. Beautiful culture, stunning architecture and amazing people.

Its called Naples

10 Norilsk

The normal evening landscape in Norilsk is similar to the landscapes you see in post-apocalyptic doomsday horror films. The pollution is terrible

Just like every small russian town it's horrible

Post-apocalyptic city

Awful city in russia

The Contenders
11 Gary

Gary Indiana isn't the worst city in the world but definitely one of the worst in the U.S. some parts of the city are completely abandoned and full of trash. It also has a very high murder rate. Creepy place.

Indiana is best for its races. It's a peaceful place.

12 Milan

Dark, dirty, no green place, public transports absent, nasty and dowdy population, flats to rent or buy are extremely old-fashioned and expensive and difficult to practice a high level job there if you are not Italian, but this problem is everywhere in Italy they refuse a foreigner to have a higher post than them. So difficult to be a manager there, and Italians are extremely shiftless ans unpredictable, they are always right and never in time.

Arrogant people are living in this dark and dirty city without any charm.

You guys are wrong. Milan is the BEST city on the planet. Everyone is friendly to you. The city has a lot of charm and is very bright and beautiful. It’s location is amazing and I’ve lived here for 25 years and I love it here. This is why I moved to Milan.

13 Kinshasa
14 Nairobi

Nairobi is such a beautiful city with great scenarios. Everything is so expensive from food to hotel to bad traffic. City police will let loose a serial killer for cheap bribe. Politicians are to blame for putting Nairobi in this position.

JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE VISITED IT doesn't MEAN ITS BAD. Its not perfect, corruption is there but it's a good place.

Horrible am I right? This place is full of robbers. If you speak English there they will steal your stuff

Politics killed this city

15 Camden
16 Rome Rome is the capital city and a special comune of Italy, as well as the capital of the Lazio region. The city has been a major human settlement for almost three millennia. With 2,860,009 residents in 1,285 km2 (496.1 sq mi), it is also the country's most populated comune. It is the third most populous city in the European Union by population within city limits. It is the centre of the Metropolitan City of Rome, which has a population of 4,355,725 residents, thus making it the most populous metropolitan city in Italy. Its metropolitan area is the third-most populous within Italy. Rome is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, within Lazio (Latium), along the shores of more.

Rome? why rome?

17 Phnom Penh

It's the capital of Cambodia.

Dangerous shady city

What is this city

18 Islamabad

Y is Islamabad here. It is pretty safe here. I've been living here for 9 years

19 Damascus Damascus is the capital of the Syrian Arab Republic; it is also the country's largest city, following the decline in population of Aleppo due to the battle for the city.

The Syrian Conflict just ruined the city the way it used to be.

Damuscus was beautiful, and so was the rest of Syria. Stupid civil war

Damascus is beautiful? Who put it on here

20 Port Au Prince
21 Beijing

Beijing is somewhat of a clean city but there are serious issues with people who publicly urinate in some areas which build a terrible aroma. Most of the residents are rude, not disciplined and unhelpful as well as the lack of understanding in English. People constantly litter in the more crowded areas whereas Traffic is just a complete joke. Whilst I was laying over in Beijing for 24 hours, it was estimated that the distance from my hotel to the Terminal I arrived in was 50 minutes. Completely Ridiculous!

That is too offensive, you guys are basically offending me because I am from beijing, wherever you're from, I love it, I love everywhere in the world, you are being trully rude and disrespectful.

Worst ever with dirty dogs and pigs stupid people litter everywhere!

Too much pollution

22 Kabul

It's still beautiful though. The idiot news only shows the poor part. My family lives in the average area, and it's close to a beautiful blue mosque.

Kabul Used to be beautiful no thanks to The Arabs and Russians who destroyed it

The capital of Afghanistan is destroyed thanks to wars.

It must be on number 1! It is like a terrorist capital.

23 Hanoi

The Vietnam war is over people, the Hanoi Hilton is now a museum or something like that

This is a stupid city

24 London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia. London is one of the world's most important global cities. It exerts considerable influence upon the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transportation

London is now called 3rd world Londonistan, courtesy of Islamist mayor Sadiq Khan and his Labour Party cronies. The city is made of segregated homogeneous ghettos, where the English identities are dead and replaced by racial tensions, Crime (acid attacks on the rise), high taxes, rise in gang culture, more degenerate selfie scumbags on binge on junk food and reality T.V. shows while taking drugs, more mosques than churches, sharia law, halal meat, welfare dependency for the feckless, rubbish public services and corrupt self-serving Labour-run Socialist councils. RIP 20th Century London and before.

My home city. A fantastic place if you are rich or come from a good background. But the old Dickensian class system is still in play, its just less visible.

this city S***'s on the natives and the poor in favor of attracting foreign investment and property tycoons at our expense meaning that every year everything is more expensive making it harder for us to stay.

London is a dump. It's too bad Us brits are letting the governement win. Immigration, poor water standards and other factors let this city down big time... Move up north for a better experience. Even Manchester is better than London and that's saying something.

Its higher than pyongyang wow just wow in the united kingdom you have freedom and in north korea you don't and london was lots of intresting stuff and places to visit while pyongyang there's nothing to do there because its in north korea

25 Moscow

It's Moscow, capital of Russia, what more could be said. Evil murderous government trickles down to evil people, especially to any who help them or people they take from which today is Ukraine and America, which they hate the worst of all. They attack, steal and then deride their victims to get away with it. Kleptocracy, no sociopathy, narcissism and psychopathy. Were they pushed and deceived and had coups to be made that way, well then a good reason not to because the people of the world are paying the price.

Because Putin lives there, we vote this? That's just stupid...

Bad government in Russia now

Because Putin lives there
