Included on the list are the obvious including Afghanistan and Iraq to places where tourists do visit frequently like Mexico and Thailand.
Catholicgauze has two other places to add to dangerous tourist destinations.
- Palestine (Gaza Strip and Palestinian controlled West Bank) is an especially risky place. One has to carefully align themselves with Hamas, Fatah, or Islamic Jihad. Even then you have to worry about run ins with the local branch of al Qaeda. Choosing the wrong side can get you kidnapped faster than a BBC journalist.
- Favelas of Sao Paulo - If the regular thugs do not kill you, the police-gang war will.
