A dream vacation in foreign climes is every leisure seekers fantasy.
Enticing brochures and irresistible holiday offers promoting gorgeous
vacation spots are galore and many a time unknowing travellers find
themselves in rather ‘sticky’ situations, due to unstable
situations surrounding some of the world’s most exotic cities. We
have narrowed down the 10 most dangerous, read on and learn.
Once a major tourist hub, the city has a little over a million
inhabitants, unfortunately Barquisimeto records at least one murder a
day. Home to many universities and faculties of higher education
Barquisimeto is now sadly one of Venezuela’s most dangerous cities,
avoided by many tourists.
Pakistan on its own is a rather dangerous destination to travel to,
with tribal wars and tussles of supremacy. Peshawar has seen lots of
violence with suicide bombings and attacks on security forces.
Definitely not safe for tourists Peshawar sadly, boasts impressive
landmarks and gorgeous parks.
Deemed as one of the world’s most dangerous cities Sana’a is also
one of the most beautiful. Unluckily located in a politically unstable
country, the old city of Sana’a is resplendent with gorgeous
architecture from a bygone era.
A beautiful port-city Acapulco was once a tourist hub. However the
gorgeous beaches are now deserted owing to drug-lords running the
city, and dead bodies turning up almost daily. Not a pleasant
experience when on vacation.
5. Distrito Central-Honduras
Beautiful Distrito-Central is made up of three small cities
unfortunately Distrito-Central exceeds the standard crime rate, with a
maximum murder rate worldwide. Crime and violence are attributed to
strong Mafia presence, poverty and corrupt government. Only the
toughest travellers visit this city.
Tropical Brazil is home to 14 of the world’s most violent cities.
Site of the mighty Amazon Jungle Brazil cannot guarantee your safety
in many of its cities. Maceio is by far the worst with roughly 135
murders for every 100,000 residents! Not even the slums of Rio de
Janeiro are this bad.
The Shabaab Militants of Somalia have been plaguing Mogadishu for over
a decade. Residents and tourists alike are in danger here. Despite
military advice from the United States since 2013, Mogadishu is still
a high risk city for its residents.
Beautiful Kenya sadly cannot guarantee tourist safety. Just one, of
Nairobi’s conflicted cities Kenya especially is unsafe for women.
Walking in the streets at night is high-risk. Al Shabaab Militants add
to the danger. Not surprisingly Nairobi is not top priority on most
tourists list of must visit cities.
Drug cartel problems plague most Mexican cities and Chihuahua is
unfortunately located on the main Mexico-U.S cocaine smuggling route.
Almost daily exchange of fire on the streets is not conducive to a
relaxing holiday, no matter how gorgeous the tropical surroundings
Once again the drug cartels have spoilt another Latin American city.
Reporting over 80 homicides on average the city is no popular tourist
hub. In fact it is a risk to live here.
So there you have it, beautiful cities, great sightseeing and the
highest risk of danger to tourists. Unless drastic changes take place
these exotic destinations are best avoided. Remember, no holiday
destination is worth risking your life.
