World's deadliest tourist Destination.

World's deadliest tourist Destination.
Editor-Jitendra Kumar Jitu
Voice-Anju Paudel
Travelling should be more than packing bags, travelling long way to a 7star hotel and visiting some of most likely visited tourist destination. According to my idea of holiday, if you have a charged pocket, a desire to taste some adventure (or taste death) then you must visit Somalia. Somalia is on the Horn of Africa, and is bordered by Ethiopia to the west, Djibouti to the north-west, and Kenya on its south-west. On June 21, the US Federal Government has issued a Travel Warning for the country. Travel to Somalia is EXTREMELY NOT recommended as the conflict continues.
Somalia is noted as the world's unsafe travel destination and is one of the most dangerous places on Earth.
Somalia is home to the largest coastline in Africa, good hotel and food bargains and the beautiful mountains. In 2004, Somalia's minister of tourism claimed that the country hadn't had an officially-acknowledged tourist in 14 years. The problem? Civil war and fighting among warlords seeking to gain control of drug and weapons trafficking has left Somalia a burning wreck of what was once a beautiful country.
Since the civil war broke out in 1990, Somalia is divided into no less than two dozen warring groups. The proprietors of most of the Hotels may serve delicious lobster on the roof overlooking the sea, but they also advise that visitors hire at least 10 armed guards to get them from the airport to the hotel. The United States doesn't even operate an embassy in Somalia, so you're truly on your own. Terrorist attacks, cross-border warring and brutal, violent street crime wrack the country on a daily basis. So why would you want to visit Somalia? The answer probably would be adventure.

The Safety Tips:
1. Somalia is a Muslim country. As such, be sensitive about where you point your camera. There are many great photo opportunities around every corner (the question is usually what to leave out of each image), but when photographing people, always ask first. Don't ever try to take pictures of women, even if you're a woman yourself. This is considered a great offense and can even result in more than a few harsh words. Also don't try to take pictures of anything that looks as if it could be of any strategic importance.
2. Alcohol is prohibited in Somalia and possessing alcohol will get you into a lot of trouble - and never drink and drive.
3. Never discuss religion. Even highly-educated Somalis who studied abroad won't appreciate it and doors will close for you. Also be aware that the Islamic call to prayer happens five times daily and can be heard loudly almost anywhere you go. Just understand that most Somali people are used to it and enjoy it as part of the cultural experience. If you aren't Muslim, it is not expected for you to participate, but you should always sit quietly and respectfully until the prayers end.
4. Do Take care of your clothing as you are visiting a Muslim country.
As with any travel in a war zone, exercise extreme caution. And for a last pray for a safe landing back to your town.

Somalia, is a country located in the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Ethiopia to the west, Djibouti to the northwest, the Gulf of Aden to the north, the Indian Ocean to the east, and Kenya to the southwest. Somalia has the longest coastline on the continent's mainland, and its terrain consists mainly of plateaus, plains and highlands. Climatically, hot conditions prevail year-round, with periodic monsoon winds and irregular rainfall.

Somalia has a population of around 10 million. Around 85% of residents are ethnic Somalis, who have historically inhabited the northern part of the country. Ethnic minorities make up the remainder and are largely concentrated in the southern regions. The official languages of Somalia are Somali and Arabic, both of which belong to the Afro-Asiatic family. Most people in the country are Muslim, with the majority being Sunni.

In antiquity, Somalia was an important commercial centre, and is among the most probable locations of the fabled ancient Land of Punt. During the Middle Ages, several powerful Somali empires dominated the regional trade, including the Ajuran Empire, the Adal Sultanate, the Warsangali Sultanate, and the Geledi Sultanate. In the late 19th century, through a succession of treaties with these kingdoms, the British and Italians gained control of parts of the coast and established the colonies of British Somaliland and Italian Somaliland. In the interior, Muhammad Abdullah Hassan's Dervish State successfully repelled the British Empire four times and forced it to retreat to the coastal region. The Dervishes were finally defeated in 1920 by British airpower. Italy acquired full control of the northeastern and southern parts of the area after successfully waging the so-called Campaign of the Sultanates against the ruling Majeerteen Sultanate and Sultanate of Hobyo. Italian occupation lasted until 1941, yielding to British military administration. Northern Somalia would remain a protectorate, while southern Somalia became a United Nations Trusteeship in 1949. In 1960, the two regions united to form the independent Somali Republic under a civilian government. Mohamed Siad Barre seized power in 1969 and established the Somali Democratic Republic. In 1991, Barre's government collapsed as the Somali Civil War broke out.

In the absence of a central government, Somalia's residents reverted to local forms of conflict resolution. A few autonomous regions, including the Somaliland, Puntland and Galmudug administrations, emerged in the north in the ensuing process of decentralization. The early 2000s saw the creation of fledgling interim federal administrations. The Transitional National Government (TNG) was established in 2000, followed by the formation of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) in 2004, which reestablished national institutions such as the military. In 2006, the TFG, assisted by Ethiopian troops, assumed control of most of the nation's southern conflict zones from the newly formed Islamic Courts Union (ICU). The ICU subsequently splintered into more radical groups such as Al-Shabaab, which battled the TFG and its AMISOM allies for control of the region, with the insurgents losing most of the territory that they had seized by mid-2012. In 2011–2012, a political process providing benchmarks for the establishment of permanent democratic institutions was launched.[23] Within this administrative framework a new provisional constitution was passed in August 2012 which reformed Somalia as a federation. Following the end of the TFG's interim mandate the same month, the Federal Government of Somalia, the first permanent central government in the country since the start of the civil war, was formed. The nation has concurrently experienced a period of intense reconstruction, particularly in the capital, Mogadishu. Through the years, Somalia has maintained an informal economy, based mainly on livestock, remittances, and telecommunications.

Somalia has been inhabited since at least the Paleolithic. During the Stone Age, the Doian and Hargeisan cultures flourished here. The oldest evidence of burial customs in the Horn of Africa comes from cemeteries in Somalia dating back to the 4th millennium BCE. The stone implements from the Jalelo site in the north were also characterized in 1909 as important artefacts demonstrating the archaeological universality during the Paleolithic between the East and the West.

According to linguists, the first Afro-Asiatic-speaking populations arrived in the region during the ensuing Neolithic period from the family's proposed urheimat (original homeland) in the Nile Valley, or the Near East.

Worst Places for Americans to Visit Around The World

Get more Tips here!
Whether they pose a threat to travelers’ safety, or may cause detrimental harm to one’s physical health, here is our list of the 10 worst places for Americans to visit around the world.

1. Saudi Arabia
The U.S. Department of State advises Americans to exercise extreme caution when visiting Saudi Arabia, due to, in part, the increased amount of armed conflict. One place in particular, Edge of the World in Riyadh, was once an insanely popular tourist destination. But, maybe, it's better to stay away.

2. El Salvador
Amazing views, delicious cuisine and impressive ruins will have to wait due to the increase in violence. One day, Americans may finally get the green light to make the trek to El Salvador again.

3. Somalia
The U.S. Department of State even suggests those who ignore their warning to draft their last will and testament before heading out to this East African country. The country’s prime minister has dreams of a brighter future, and our fingers are crossed, too, cause it's an amazing place.

4. Honduras
Americans might want to think twice about traveling to Honduras, especially since the lack of police and increased incidents of crime. Hopefully it will change soon, cause there's so much to see about Maya history.

5. Democratic Republic of the Congo
It's not a good place because of the problems with the Ebola and armed conflict. But it's a very different place full of beautiful mountains, volcanoes and the Lake Kivu.

6. Bangkok, Thailand
This county is quite the opposite, it's not a good place because of us, the tourists. It's so crowded that we're starting to affect negatively the country. So, maybe, it's better it give it a time.

7. Afghanistan
Recent wars, Communist coups, and attacks make it a really bad place to visit. Hopefully, one day we'll be able to see the stunning Hindu Kush mountains and breathtaking lakes.

8. North Korea
It isn’t entirely impossible to visit North Korea, and the U.S. Department of State advises its citizens that traveling to the East Asian country could result in arrest and long-term detention by the hands of North Korea’s government officials.

9. Mount Everest
Mountain trekkers have to come up with the estimated $40,000 to be guided up the mountain by a local Nepali operator, and there are physical dangers for climbing to the peak, as well, including frostbite and hypothermia from the freezing temperatures. So... a bit risky.

10. Beijing, China
This is the worst place to visit because of the serious air pollution. They have made smog a huge problem in the city, resulting in the government to implement emergency measures to help alleviate the problem. You should wait until they fix it.

Which one do you think is the worst place to visit?

Somalia - is known as a very dangerous country. Very poor people, a lot of gangster groups, unemployment, in general there is no joy!
But even Somalia has something good, for example: beautiful beaches and clear waters of the ocean. Millions of tourists could come here, but unfortunately unfortunately Somalia is a state with a complete lack of law and security!

Worst Travel Destinations in the World

Get more Tips here!

Tourists are often wary of traveling to certain destinations that maintain a reputation of being “unsafe”. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 worst travel destinations around the world based on these factors.

1. Port au Prince, Haiti
Since the 2010 earthquake, Port au Prince has been falling even further into decline. This city lacks basic healthcare and education systems and is stricken with severe poverty. Locals are purposefully kept far from tourists, making the experience hardly authentic for travelers who visit there.

2. Damascus, Syria
There has been a temporary suspension of commercial flights and closure of roadways. Some threats are very high in Damascus and the surrounding suburbs. While its a historically and culturally rich city, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises that Damascus is one of the worst travel destinations in the world right now.

3. Mogadishu, Somalia
Recently named by the US State Department as the most dangerous place on Earth, Mogadishu is not expected to be a popular tourist destination anytime soon. Mogadishu is not only the headquarters for non good people in the Horn of Africa, but new non licit organizations are forming everyday.

4. Pyongyang, North Korea
The only American who has been warmly welcomed into North Korea recently was basketball superstar, Dennis Rodman. Unless you look like him, don’t expect to be able to wander freely around the country. Tourists can only visit Pyongyang under the supervision of accredited tour guides, and the tours themselves are strictly regulated and restricted by the government.

5. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
Considered one of the capitals of the world for bad people, vacationing in Ciudad Juarez is not recommended. This Mexican city has had lots of issues with the law. The big lords looking to maintain a stronghold of their supplies to the American market often threat innocent people to maintain their border city.

6. Bogotá, Colombia
Bogotá is not the best city at all. Some outlaw groups and other organizations continue to hold civilians, including foreigners, for ransom or as political bargaining chips. If you must travel to Bogotá, do so with extreme caution.

7. Dhaka, Bangladesh
The city’s nearby river is beautiful, but also severely polluted. Dhaka’s political system is highly wrong and proper healthcare and infrastructure systems are lacking in this capital city. Bangladesh does have the potential to be a tourist-worthy country, but government officials must improve humanitarian concerns and cleanliness standards in Dhaka before we would recommend it.

8. Skegness, England
Brits frequent this disappointing town hoping to spend some time at the beach, but traveling to Skegness has become a joke. The town, which appears to be stuck in the past, offers very few attractions for tourists to enjoy and is overpriced. This is one of the worst travel destinations.

9. Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea’s capital city is known for its frequent lawlessness. All the bad issues take place daily. Port Moresby is replete with waste and pollution and offers few attractions for tourists.

10. Moscow, Russia
Moscow experiences extreme weather conditions during most months, making travel extremely unpleasant. Political problem levels are high in Russia’s capital city. Even the police are known to not precisely help tourists. We recommend visiting neighboring St. Petersburg instead.

Which of these cities surprised you the most?

What is ZANZIBAR (Tanzania)?!

HELLO!! Sorry you haven’t heard from me in a few days... I’ve been having WAY too much fun on this beautiful (and seriously underrated) island called ZANZIBAR in TANZANIA to kick off my 2 month, 14-country Africa trip.

Did you know that the phrase “Hakuna Matata” (from the Lion King) actually means “No Worries” in Swahili?! Moreover, did you know that Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen, was born and raised here? There’s so much more uniqueness to this island that I can’t wait to share with you!

I’ve spent the last 3 days in Zanzibar with a few of my best friends from home and a new local friend, Mandela. I cannot believe how perfect these white sand beaches are, combined with a very simple life, lots of fresh fruit (PINEAPPLES) and Rastafarian beach parties — I could easily spend a few months here.

In this video, I aim to educate you about the diverse history of Zanzibar, show you some fun activities happening around the island, and tell you what to expect if you are planning to come here.

Have you ever been to Zanzibar?

P.S - Watch until the very end to learn some Swahili words!!!

What is DJIBOUTI?

Have you ever heard of the country called DJIBOUTI? If not, don't feel embarrassed... because it's a very tiny country on the Horn of Africa that gets minimal tourism -- roughly 70,000 visitors per year.

Over the last 2 days, I have explore every facet of the capital & biggest city called Djibouti City. I find this place to be the most interesting country in Africa.

Here are some of my quick realizations:

- It's VERY EXPENSIVE -- I have spent more than $400 in the last 2 days and I haven't done much other than walk around, take a few taxis, eat 4 meals & sleep (keep in mind my visa was $90 and my hotel was $105).

- Walking around the streets feels very much like France, from the colonization period that started in 1884 and ended in 1977. The people here speak French (first), Arabic (second) and English (third, if any at all).

- There is a LOT OF SECURITY everywhere -- police/military guards standing on every corner (literally) with giant guns strapped to their backs. It is kind of crazy and very intimidating, but safe.

- About a quarter of Djibouti's population (~250,000 people) are living in extreme poverty, which is more extreme than you'd think given that this country is so expensive. A massive contrast between rich & poor.

All of my thoughts on this mysterious country, and more, are in this video. Have you ever been to Djibouti?
