Absolutely dreadful.
I'm never going back.
Far too many drug dealers targeting fluent english speaking tourists in parks.
Even the underage deemed too young to be legally able to purchase electronic cigarettes without nicotine.

It's all life experience that could be helpful for the future.
Always trust your gut instinct.

I wouldn't go but I'm a female travelling alone who has zero tolerance for illegal narcotics or those that directly fuel the horrifying industry with their cash or practical support.

Look up the areas that you will be visiting to find out other tourists experiences and get recommendations of the safest venues to visit that are most compatible with your interests & lifestyle preferences.
Listen to what your common sense is telling you if you get the feeling that a neighbourhood has a problematic reputation or is a safe haven for illegal narcotics gangs capable of wreaking havoc.
Good luck!

I’m guessing a few of these were in the same trip. There’s no way you could’ve visited all of those in separate trips. There’s well over 25 places listed there.

Separate trips over the last 15 years.
Pre-pandemic I used to choose holiday destinations based on being able to easily visit friends living nearby, sample local cuisine compatible with my diet and opportunities to photograph interesting scenes & local wildlife rarely seen within the uk.

I spent Christmas in and around Amsterdam many years ago. It was lovely. Every country has a darker side - you just have to be aware and avoid some areas. Do some research before you go - I use travel guides such as Lonely Planet and Rough Guide. They are often available in local libraries.

Thank you I’ve booked my tickets and flight for the next day after Christmas (Boxing Day) to go for 4 nights.

I've been to Dominican Republic, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Spain, France and Mexico. I've just turned 18 last month so I'm really looking forward to travelling more, I've just got back from Egypt, I have Majorca booked for September, Dominican Republic booked for January but I'm torn where to go for my birthday in May. The ideas I have of where to go are Maldives, Mauritius or Dubai but I'm hoping someone in this chat can give me some advice, thank you!
