Dhaka one of world’s worst holiday spots

Dhaka has been ranked alongside Syria and North Korea as one of the world’s worst holiday destinations.

Famed for over population, pollution and traffic congestion, Dhaka was rated eighth in travel website Destination Tips’ damning list.

It was ranked just before Skegness, the Lincolnshire resort, and was placed alongside war-stricken Damascus in Syria and Kim Jong-Un’s totalitarian state of North Korea.

But Skegness mayor Dick Edginton was quick to defend his town, deriding the rankings as “absolutely offensive”, according to a report published in the Evening Standard.

Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, topped the list with anti-Government protests and Russian intervention having left large swathes in ruins.

Port au Prince, Haiti, devastated by an earthquake in 2010, and Mogadishu, Somalia, Africa’s most violent city, also made it to the list.

Here’s the top ten worst holiday destinations ranked by Destination Tips:

• Kiev, Ukraine

• Port au Prince, Haiti

• Damascus, Syria

• Mogadishu, Somalia

• Pyongyang, North Korea

• Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

• Bogota, Colombia

• Dhaka, Bangladesh

• Skegness, Lincolnshire

• Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
