Places Too Dangerous To Visit?

Several years ago Condé Nast Traveler magazine ran an article about places that were too dangerous for the average tourist to visit. The article was published at a time when the level of violence in Colombia caused by drug cartels was at its height. About Colombia the article stated succinctly, “Not even for thrill seekers.” I believe the level of violence in Colombia has gone way down since the article was published, but an interesting question arises, what places are too dangerous for you to visit?

Newark, NJ


Just last week or the week before there was an article on CNN that boasted "No murders in Newark over 60 days" or something like that.

Okay, I understand Afghanistan, Darfur, Somalia, Chechnya(Mabye) East Timor, North Korea, Sudan, but Libya, China, Saudi Arabia and Russia?

China is absolutely safe, been there, lived there, Russia is safe, and Saudi is actually safe as well, just have to remember the country's customs.

Ironically, many Japanese consider the US a dangerous place to visit, and many of the countries of the world have travel warnings for people headed to the US, mainly due to bigotry, the lack of foreign language speakers, and hatred and intolerance.

Regarding Colombia:

A few years ago my husband and I traveled to Bogota to attend the wedding of a friend. He was an American marrying a native of Bogota.

What we were told by the bride herself (the native) was to not, under any circumstances, leave the main urban areas of the city of Bogota -- even with our driver, who was taking us around for the weekend. She said the likelihood was very high that on the rural roads, the car would be pulled over and we would be "detained" indefinitely.

That said, I didn't feel unsafe at all in the city. I even wandered around by myself for a few hours around lunchtime on a business day, and never once felt uncomfortable (other than not knowing Spanish and not knowing how to find what I was looking for.) We were in a primary business district, so maybe that contributed to my comfort, but overall it was a very positive experience.

It was a bit telling though when the driver took us to a grocery store and the car had to go through a security check before being parked.

My fiancee is a bit reluctant of letting me travel to her hometown Iligan City on the Philippine Island Mindanao to see her family. She says that the Muslim areas just start about 50 km south of her place and that they are the operational base of several Muslim extremist / seccessionist / bandit groops (the borders between the motives are very fluid), which occasionally carry out raids into the neighbouring provinces to capture hostages, wealthier Filipinos and foreigners. While she, as a native, blends into the crowd, I literally stick out off it (I'm about a head taller than the average male Filipino).

So I have heard. Bogota used to have a bad reputation for would be tourists but I hear its safe now.

Pakistan I would consider dangerous as I was due to visit friends there and the Embassy told me not to go !!!

Saudi Arabia / Parts of Indonesia / Afghanistan / Iraq / Parts of Egypt / Parts of Sri Lanka / Parts of Thailand / Lots of African countries which is a shame.

I was in Guatemala last week with my brother and we decided to rent a car so we could drive to Antigua. Since we live in Mexico, we thought it wouldn't be that different... and it wasn't except for the fact that the police decided to stop us because they were doing a routine check and because we didn't look like the people of Guatemala (yes, that is what he said). I started to talk to the police officer about crime in the city, insecurity and about living in Mexico, which I thought was more dangerous and he couldn't believe all the things I told him. After looking at my passport and the car registration and after I threw some jokes he decided to let us go. Next day I told the guy working at the rental agency what happened and he told me I was very lucky that police did not ask for money or took me to the station or even kidnapped us...

I'd really like to visit Israel, but can't help but feel like that would just be incredibly unsafe to visit.

I know the suicide bombs around Tel Aviv have gone down a lot in the past few years, but growing up in the United States, it seemed like terrorist attacks in Israel were an almost nightly occurrence for many years.

I don't mean to be "placeist" against Israel, but I just don't know if I would feel comfortable going there.

Newark has been historically known as dangerous, but I am much more apprehensive about going to either Irvington or Camden.

And speaking of murder rates, at one time this year Philadelphia was averaging more than one a day. Philadelphia would kill (no pun intended) for a 60 day no murder stretch.

The rate of terrorist attacks has plummeted in recent years thanks to tougher security restrictions, though I still would be reasonably careful. You're much more likely to get hurt by the insane driving in Israel.

Then again, there are places in Israel best left avoided, and crossing over anywhere into the Palestinian Territories is a very, very, very bad idea.

http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/hrrpt/2005/61671.htm

Federal and local measures to combat crime continued to be applied disproportionately to persons appearing to be from the Caucasus and Central Asia. Police reportedly beat, harassed, and demanded bribes from persons with dark skin, or who appeared to be from the Caucasus, Central Asia, or Africa. Ethnic Azerbaijani vendors alleged that police frequently used violence against them during document checks at markets in St. Petersburg.

Authorities in Moscow subjected dark‑skinned persons to far more frequent document checks than others and frequently detained them or fined them in amounts that exceeded legally permissible penalties. Police often failed to record infractions against minorities or to issue a written record to the alleged perpetrators. Law enforcement authorities also targeted such persons for deportation from urban centers. In March the Institute for War and Peace Reporting noted that police arrested illegal migrant workers from Central Asia and illegally took their money and then took the workers to the outskirts of Moscow instead of deporting them. This practice reportedly allowed the police to pocket the cost of the deportation and leave the workers in Moscow for future arrests.
