World’s Most Dreadful Destinations

Posted on November 4, 2009 | Travel DestinationsOne Comment

If you didn’t get an opportunity to take a break for a pleasant tour, then you are missing lots of things bestowed by God. Possibly, this is the perfect time to move to your friendly travel agent. Check which destinations he has kept in his store for you, and keep in mind a very significant thing. If your travel agent is forcibly handing you packages of the below mentioned destinations, then it is the appropriate time for seeking a new travel agent.

1. Africa

Most of the African countries are good places for touring as they render great opportunities for exploring safari than any other countries. Visiting places such as Rwanda, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Congo, Liberia, Uganda, Nigeria… (the list is too long) will take you for an unusual experience in hot waters before you could say lions, tigers…

2. Afghanistan

I think the world’s going upside down, what backs this crazy point of view is that once upon a time America liked the Afghanis’ fight against the Russians. But the days have changed; the old days of freedom fighters who pushed the bad commies out of Kabul have passed with the flow of time. Today, Taliban has emerged where religious students are in a search of truth. I guess US has preps in high schools with guns as Afghanistan has the Taliban with AK-47’S.

3. Iraq

Things coming from Iraq include UN-imposed embargo, madman head of state, untapped oil reserves… And what adds to more adversity is that US has punished the innocent incorrectly and led the ‘cradle of civilization’ slide into a chasm. In addition, the most pathetic thing is that US drops bombs regularly on Iraq.

4. Israel

A very spiritual place and birthplace of many modern day religions, Israel might be good however, according to me this land of milk and honey is not a safe place to visit now-a-days. People rushing on the streets holding guns and explosives are truly bad for tourism.


5. Chechnya

To the East of Russia lies Siberia which is a relentless, isolated, cold spot yet calmness reclines in its land, however this place could make to a list of boring and remote spots. Well, at least for now let’s stay on topic. To Russia’s west lies the spot of Chechnya, where the rebel populace have been trying to free themselves from the rule of Russia, from the last half decade. This nerve-wracking battle has been creating a bloody turmoil. So, it’s better to stay away from it.

6. North Korea

Controlled by the Communist rule, yet Cuba makes a decent travel with modest weather, friendly locals, great cigars, fine rum and the most talked about activity i.e. tattooing. Some day or the other, I would go there and tattoo a hammer or sickle on my body. Even, North Korea remains to be under the clutch of Communism, however unlike Cuba, it is not a place worth visiting.

7. Cambodia

Pol Pot is the most notorious tyrant and oppressive dictators of all time, as he committed horrendous violent activities both against the civilian Cambodians as well as western people. He slaughtered both of them until his regime of terror that stayed till the late 1970’s. Even though the dreadful rule has come to an end, the terrifying threat of Cambodia still creates shiver down the spine of both the Cambodians and tourists.

8. Sri Lanka

Reckoning by whosever wish’s benchmark, both Pakistan and India (to a smaller extent) can claim a legal stake for creation of this list, however Sri Lanka takes the credit as it is the most flexible.

9. Macedonia

The past Macedonia would have been a better place to live in as during the ancient times, it was recognized as one of the Greatest World Empires. However, today the times are not the same as Macedonia witnesses’ heart-wrecking violent activities. May be this act of brutality is a temporary one; whatever things you may put forward, no one can neglect the Cyprus case.

10. United States

The US might be the most famous and might be riding the peaks of success, but don’t make mistakes about it. It is a crazy country, The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave indicates one thing when one of its States’ license plates says “Live free or Die.” It completely requires being brave.
