I have been walking here late at night a ton of time, often alone, I have never felt unsafe. Thb the only one time here that I almost got involved in a street fight was when I was living in Nha Be, with... a latino dude lol, who was living there as well. Never got food poisoning here but I eat where the locals eat. For the air pollution, I agree, I have checked some data and Saigon is the worst, even worst than the biggest Chinese cities. And for the beggars, lol, every megacities have beggars.
What does Saigon have that any of the seaside towns in Thailand don't have?

Re: What's the worst city you visited ?

Vietnam is one of the most visa friendly countries in SEA (1 year visa for ~ 500 usd available to all nationalities), huge girls pool, no need to worry like in Thailand when coming back from a visa run if you gonna get refused to come back or not, way less westerners living here too, girls are more traditional than compared to Thai girls (great if you are looking for a LTR, Vietnam has one of the lowest divorce rates in the world), living in Saigon you get all the benefits from a megacity (food options, taxis available 24h, central shopping centers, nightlife etc, the only minus compared to others megacities is no metro only public bus who are dirt cheap), if you want to take a few days off and relax on the beach can take a bus (safe driving) for 100k vnd one way to go to Vung Tau 2 hours trip to go there. Overall Saigon is great, yeah the traffic here is insane but after a few months living here you develop ultra instinct to cross the street & co so no big deal. I won't live here forever tbh, I will move to a coastal town next year, probably in Vung Tau.

To make it simple, if you want to go full degen mode Thailand > Vietnam if not Vietnam > Thailand

Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Close 2nd is Eket, Nigeria. Both in the Delta Region. No one comes to vacation in these places.

Gary, IN. Majestic Casino is the worst casino I’ve been to in terms of cleanliness. There are definitely some shady cats there too.

Yeah I'm in Khartoum right now but the thread is getting more and more out of date due to bad internet everywhere. Hopefully can update it when I get to Cairo.

Been to 46 countries and the worst city would have to be either Belize City or San Juan, PR

Delhi.

All the usual nonsense that you get in developing countries turned up to 11. Drivers hammering away on their horns constantly combined with constantly being hassled by touts that are trying to redirect you to the 'official tourist information centre'.
