G, you've been to Australia, yes?

How would Sydney compare to Barcelona?

It has Topless Girls, architecture, food, nightlife, safety, (maybe not the art). Its beaches are probably the best in the world. I haven't been to Barcelona, but it's always interested me, how would the two compare?

I'd imagine Barcelona to be somewhat cheaper.

Probably the best beach in the world ?? have you to been to the islands in Thailand,Malaysia or the Philippines yet ??

I think that's true of a lot of places, I've heard the same said of Medellin. There are some cities that are just hard to appreciate unless you can dig into the local scene and make connections.

RE: Most Overrated/Underrated Place You've Been
Overrated: Munich Germany during Oktoberfest. It was the first time for this brother in Germany and it was sausage fest. Also not too many hot Fraulens from what I saw. I know Germans have a cold demeanor on the surface but Munich seemed outright depressing to me that time. A lot of sour puss faces walking around.

Now mind you I've had success with German women in other countries but not in their own motherland. Go Figure? Probably the wrong venue, and time of year, and I really wasn't in gaming mode,but as far as daytime street action not great....

Underrated: Australia. Was in Sydney, and the Gold Coast and some of the "Sheilas" were really ...and I mean REALLY checking for a brotha. Too bad I was married at the time and was there with the wife. I say underrated because even though Australia is already known as a top spot for brothers, it was everything I thought Germany would be and then some . The venue didn't matter, the street, shopping mall, afterwork bar, I would get these HARD stares, lingering smiles, and double takes....many times with wifey standing right next to me!

It so was off the chain my wife's boss and co workers (white dudes) wanted to hang out with me just to get the expected falllout. Now I'm good looking tall muscular dude but I aint no Tyson Beckford. Well half the time over there I felt like him the other half I felt like Denzel Washington!

I've heard that Oktoberfest varies based on when you go. Like supposedly the first week is the best, then the second week all of the Italian dudes show up and by the third week, it's a fucking shitshow and sausage fest. Can't say from experience though.

If there's one thing that I'm realizing as time goes on, it's that all of the "world famous" parties (Spring Break Cancun, Carnaval, Full Moon Party, Oktoberfest, Ibiza) tend to be giant overpriced cock fests. It makes sense. If everyone in the world has heard of it, then usually it's going to be all the dudes who show up.

yep chicks in australia love big black dudes... chicks in australia getr eal drunk and there are single ones everywhere in clubs. good looking guys with game can find young hot drunk slutty women everywhere

thing is with australia if your not good looking or fat forget u will get nothing even if u have money. if u r good looking can be a gold mine for pussy.

overrated: medellin-nothing to do. girls dont go out single (all couples). lots of plastic. they are leeches for money and unreliable. once u get out of poblado u got to watch ur back...too many places u cant go at night. if ur ugly but have money u will like it...if u r ok with paying for absolutely everything.
france-completley overated. beautiful city but hell...no desire to return.

underated-sydney-manly (as good eye candy summer in manly i have seen anywhere), gold coast..great beaches
IOS-greek island
gutalajera mexico-hot girls mexico is awesome
florianopolis-beautiful scenery, beaches, women

over-rated: Colombia. I only did the caribean coast but was not impressed.

under-rated: Nepal. Many had a latina look to them. Not sure how easy to game them, they seem interested but might be very conservative. Was busy chasing the Koreans I was travelling with.

Oktoberfest is cool for about 3 days, once. After that you have pretty much seen and done all it has to offer. Its one of those things you should do once, but going every year seems retarded to me. If you want to do it spend a couple days in Munich, then bolt for somewhere else.

What about Kazantip? Threads about it seem to pop up on the forum every now and then, but I don't think anyone's been there yet? Can you file it with these above?

Then it's not accurate to say Colombia, say Barranquilla or Cartagena (wherever you were). I personally never go to the coast - it sucks!

It's like a Colombian saying USA is over-rated when he/she visited Fargo, ND or Buffalo, NY and went home.

If I remember correctly I believe Lumiere said he went to Kazantip, and he made it sound waay over rated (i.e. a sausage fest, and not an easy place to get laid).

I haven't been yet, although a Russian girl I hooked up with in St. Petersburg went this year. She said there are actually a lot of Germans and Dutch who come down now. No idea about ratio and everything, but she said similar thing to what everyone says about all of these kinds of events: after a few days she couldn't wait to leave.

right, which is why i qualified it saying where i was. You've mentioned the Colombian coast and that the girls are DTF numerous times and listed Barranquilla as one of the best places to go to get laid....so you probably go there sometimes. But i'll agree with you...Colombian coast was nothing special.

Too late for Kazantip now - it is very commercial and full of Turkish, French and German dudes. I was there first time in 2009 and the ratio was easily 1 to 1. I had medium game at that time but I had a blast there. Second time, based on my narrated stories a couple of my friends joined me and we found it full of player dudes with ratio dropped to 2 or 3 men to 1 and it generally sucked.

I think Kazantip time is over now. Need to find new venues.

The more I think about it, the more I think you're absolutely right about this. It's like everyone hears so much much hype about how the full moon party at koh phangan is full of hot horny girls and you can't not get laid there. This draws a shit ton of thirsty dudes, which skews the ratios, ultimately causing a sausage fest and a shark tank, in affect making it harder to get laid.

I absolutely agree with this. In the states when a bar goes to the airwaves with promotions, or ladies night, or whatever, dudes swamp the place. I'll be at the exact opposite venue. Don't even try to pull chicas outta the place cuz they love the attention. I learned way early on when one of my wings said, "HEY! I heard X is good on a Wed. night", that means the place is GAY!!!

We that think outside the box are the ones that get inside THE box.

It's like stocks. If you heard it's good, then you're too late.

It's no coincidence that some of the best places in the world I've been have been places that people say, "Why the hell did you go there?" Because if some 9-5er back home has heard of it, it probably sucks by now.

RE: Most Overrated/Underrated Place You've Been
Kuta, definitely overrated. Full of drunk, topless aussie dudes.

Decided to come here for 3 weeks after reading naughtynomads blogpost, but I'm not impressed. Easy enough to get laid here, but the quality of girls is not high (sometimes theres a hot local, but rarely).

Still had some great experiences with some great girls (can I post a link to my FR thread in another forum? I guess not especially because I'm new here).

But overall Kuta is a shithole, some idiot locals tried to rob me yesterday while I was trying to pull a threesome...

People look at you like you are a walking wallet. They sit around the whole day and get offended if you don't give them money. Ever heard of working for your money?

But I also met some really good people, the people having proper jobs and entrepreneurs are great. I think it's just the people living off the tourists that are like that...

Sorry for the harsh tone, but I'm stuck here for another week. Can't wait to fly back to Australia...

RE: Most Overrated/Underrated Place You've Been
That was EXACTLY my experience bface. I made the mistake of going for 3 weeks too. First few nights were fine. Got laid quite a bit. But the locals just fucking wear on you. By the second week I wanted to punch half of them in the face. I got ripped off half a dozen times easily by all sorts of scams. Just no fucking respect. And yeah, by the third week I couldn't wait to get out. I spent most of my time in my hotel room working. Didn't even want to step outside anymore. Which is fucked because the beaches are pretty nice there.

Gee, sorry guys. Seems like a sold you a queer giraffe.

I was only in Kuta for 4 nights. But three weeks? Fuck that. At least you got laid...

@bface: if you think Kuta's a shithole you should see the rest of the country... (or anywhere in the developing world for that matter)

I just changed my guide to stipulate 'only good for a few days'.
