Urban Dip Guide 2023
The World’s 50 Best Urban Dip Spots according to the finest selection of dipping connoisseurs there is: The Pond Community.
More than 200 urban dippers from +25 countries have contributed with suggestions for this year's urban dipping guide. You might wonder how we’ve narrowed it down? And to be completely honest, it was not easy. As we sifted through the numerous spot suggestions, a pivotal question quickly emerged: What sets apart a dip spot as truly “urban”? Does the urban classification extend to beaches, or is it limited to spots within major cities? And what precisely qualifies as a major city?
After careful consideration, we established a definitive criterion: The McDistance! A dip spot must be situated within a 10-kilometer radius of a McDonald’s 🍔 to qualify for the urban dip spot guide. And that, friends, narrowed the list down to 50.
We have, obviously, not had the chance to visit all the spots ourselves, so take care and follow local rules and regulations when dippping. And please share your experiences and any feedback #pondcph.
See you in the pond!
