US travel site Thrillist has released a list of the smelliest cities in the world...They Are:
5.Rotorua, New Zealand
This geyser-filled city might just be the only thing that stinks in this beautiful country. Nicknamed “Sulphur City”, Rotorua was built on top of a geothermal hot spot, and there are numerous geysers, vents, and hot pools. If you can get past the rotten egg smell, jump in one of the natural hot pools for a soak.
Remember that horrible dirty sock odor that emanated from your full garbage can after a week out of town in August? Yeah, that was nothing compared to the smell of durian -- a stinky fruit much beloved in Bangers. You’ll get a whiff on the trains, buses, and around the markets, and it’s totally overpowering.
3. Los Angeles, California
Even you admit you stink, bro! Between smog fumes, seaweed, hobos, and wafts from garbage heaps, we suggest you keep your nose firmly pinched in the height of summer.
2. Venice, Italy
It’s stinking as it’s sinking. Though Venice is undeniably beautiful, the canals are still used largely to route the city’s sewage. That, combined with the diesel of all those motorboats, can lead to a pretty foul smell. Especially during the summer when everything is hot, humid, and um, fragrant.
1. Edinburgh, Scotland
Edinburgh’s breweries and distilleries have been causing such a stink, the city finally mandated in 2009 that the North British Distillery install an “odor-control tower” to help mitigate the smell of malt and yeast. Though the measures have helped, you will still detect the city’s smell when the wind blows just right.
