Dhaka: Dhaka has been dubbed one of the world’s worst holiday destinations — alongside Skegness, a British seaside town and Pyongyang in North Korea.

According to Destination Tips, Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is the one of world most poluted cities.

The city was ranked eighth in the travel website’ worst holiday destinations list.

Dhaka was just before Skegness in Lincolnshire of UK, and Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea.

The website reckons Kim Jong Un’s secret state of North Korea is only slightly worse, while crime-ridden Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea is only just better.

Skeggy comes ninth in a list that included Syrian war zone Damascus and other lawless hotspots.

However, Skegness Mayor Dick Edgington leaped to the defence of the town, famous for its sandy beach, camping sites, funfair, slot machines and pier.
