The Worst Place to Be Poor

Not that there is a particularly good place to be poor, but there are places that just rub it in. Take Monaco, for example. The country of 32,000 people (the world's most densely populated country) boasts more millionaires per capita than any other country.

They like backpackers there about as much as insects, and let's face it, in Monaco there is no place to hide flip-flops and a backpack no matter how hard one tries.

Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful. It's just that you would have to be a masochist to try to stay here on a budget. Even the casino in Monte Carlo charges an entrance fee. Thankfully, it's small enough (not even one mile across) that you can see most of it, or at least the parts accessible to the public, in a couple of hours. But that's exactly the problem with "doing" Monaco: while you can see it, you cannot "do" it.
