10 Most Dangerous Countries for Americans or Westerners.

You know some countries are more dangerous than Detroit or a Lingerie party at my cousin's ex-wife's house. Yes, it's hard to believe, I know.
In general, the world can be a dangerous place. You could be in danger no matter where your plane lands. The thing is, some countries excel in danger. And some even bump that up a notch depending on where you hail from. If you think everyone in the world loves America and its people, you’ve lived a sheltered life and I want to congratulate you on escaping from where ever you were and are now able to get on the internet to watch this video.
The fact is, some countries are dangerous for everyone, especially Americans, so much so the Dept. of State updates a report every couple weeks called Travel Advisory. This is a report that ranks the danger level a country might have for Americans that travel there. It has colors like a mood right of danger and goes from level 1 Blue that Exercise normal precautions, up to 4) Red Do not travel.
In today’s video, we're looking at the top 10 Level 4s and find out why.

10) Syria
9) Burkina Faso
8)South Sudan
7)Yemen
6)Venezuela
5)Mali
4)Iraq
3)China
2)Iran
1)Hati

I hope you enjoyed today's video. If there is a state, city or town you'd like us to do a video about let us know in the comment section.
If you enjoy these videos I would love to hear about it. These videos are made to help people who are thinking about relocating, looking for real estate, or just wanting to learn about the United States. We look at the best and worst cities, states, towns, and neighborhoods in the United States. But, most of the time focus on the negative side of locations. If you only want some happy positive information about a city, town or state, I would suggest looking up local mortgage and real estate companies or maybe the locations website. They are trying to sell you something so it will be nothing but sunshine and rainbows. They won't tell you about crime, poverty, bail bondsmen, or insurance you'll need because of natural disasters. I will. And I will try and make it entertaining.

I Had a Change of Heart about the Philippines

Do you ever go to a place that everyone else loves but you just don't connect with it in that way? I think they call it Paris syndrome.
I felt that way about the Philippines the first time I went in 2013. I just didn't love it, but I could never really articulate why.

I realized that if I couldn't come up with a good reason, it meant that perhaps it was ME who was the problem the first time around. I knew that I had to return to see if that was the case.

I'm so happy to say that this time around, I had a change of heart. The locals in the Philippines were so friendly, that even when things went wrong like they did in Siargao, it turned out to be a beautiful experience. I am thankful that I got to go back and have a change of heart, but it felt dishonest not to talk about the experience I went into this Philippines trip with, and I wanted to share the truth with you!

Now I know, this is a place I'll keep coming back to. A BIG THANK YOU to all of the amazing locals who turned my impressions around this time.

What Are The Safest And Most Dangerous Countries In The World For Tourists To Travel?

Travel safety is no joke. While it would be wonderful to see all the different sights and sounds that our diverse world has to offer, there are also some safety issues that you might want to take into consideration before you start to pack your bags. After all, the last thing you’d want would be to find yourself in a shady situation in a country you hardly know.

Before you book your flight( it pays to know where you’re going. Coming equipped with the right knowledge means you can prepare for the worst and stay scot-free throughout your trip. So, what are the safest and most dangerous countries around the globe?

The Global Peace Index

To give you an accurate representation of safety, we’re using the Global Peace Index (GPI) - a measure used by the Institute for Economics and Peace to designate the relative safety of 163 independent states and territories around the globe.
It uses 23 different items to measure peacefulness and safety across different countries including levels of violent crime, level of perceived criminality in society, and a number of homicides, among others.

Top 10 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods for 2020

Top 10 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods for 2020
.
All the new cars have navigation systems that tell us how to get the places we want to go the best routes to take, and where the traffic is bad. I think they should start telling us where not to go and places to avoid. It should tell you things like “turn right in 500 yards to avoid a neighboorhood that is known for supplying illegal pharmaceuticals and tempory companionship.
Every city has them and they should be avoided. Since the land nav won’t tell you I will.
For this list, we are ranked by your chance of being a victim of a crime in a certain neighborhood. It is simple math, how many people live there vs. how many crimes committed. We will have people that think this is wrong. They always seem to think either their neighborhood is the worst in the country or it’s not as bad as I make it sound. Numbers don’t lie.
One thing I would like to point out is statistically you have more law-abiding, good people in all these neighborhoods, they just have some really motivated a-holes doing bad things.
So where are the most dangerous neighborhoods in all of America?

Is Manila safe for tourists? | exploring the most dangerous city in Southeast Asia

Many people told me that I shouldn’t got o Manila, surprisingly non of these people have actually ever been to Manila, because even thought Philippines is a very popular destination, majority of tourist usually tend to skip country’s capital. I personally love exploring new places, and since we already had a layover in Manila, we decided to extend it and see Manila for ourselves, and make up our own mind about this city.

Yes, Manila might not be the most tourist friendly destination and you definitely need to be carful and make sure you’re staying as safe as possible, but beside that the city really surprised me in a positive way! It was different than any other city I’ve ever seen before, it was colourful, interesting, full of life. We had a great time exploring it, and I’m so happy I decided to give Manila a chance!

30 Unique Things That Only Happen in Saudi Arabia

Did you ever think you could serve jail time for a selfie? Well, there’s no country quite like Saudi Arabia, and while it definitely has a colorful culture, some of its traditions and rules are fascinating…. And some are just plain weird!

For example, birth control is often accessible only for married women. Some pharmacies can ask for a marriage certificate before selling contraceptives! If you're a Saudi man, giving flowers to your sweetheart is also not a good idea. Here, women can only receive flowers from other women. And there are no cinemas in Saudi Arabia. The government believes that movies may give men and women inappropriate ideas. Can you imagine that?

SUMMARY:
- Saudi Arabia is located on the Arabian Peninsula. Just so you know, this is the world’s largest peninsula. And even though Saudi Arabia is the 13th largest country in the world, it still has no river! Considering the fact that it’s mostly deserts, this is a real bummer for everybody.
- Despite its desert climate, snow, rain, and hail are never out of the picture. Especially, if you live in areas like Tabuk.
- Also, don’t be surprised if you see a Saudi family enjoying their meals on the floor.
- Saudi people take naming their child pretty seriously. They usually choose names that somehow reflect their kid’s heritage, the clan they’re from, or their extended family.
- Not that long ago, the women of Saudi Arabia weren’t allowed to drive cars or even ride bicycles. However, they could easily fly planes if they wanted to. Seems logical! Thankfully, in 2018, this ban was lifted.
- Universities are also packed with women. According to statistics, about 52 percent of students pursuing a bachelor’s degree are, in fact, women.
- Valentine’s Day in Saudi Arabia also comes with a set of rules. Flower shops can’t sell red roses, gift shops avoid selling heart-shaped products, and girls are prohibited from wearing red to school. And if you're a Saudi man, giving flowers to your sweetheart is also not a good idea. Here, women can only receive flowers from other women.
- Saudi wedding ceremonies are also not as fun as you might think. Believe it or not, they’re often held separately for the bride and the groom! The newlyweds get together only near the end of it.
- Music classes are also kinda banned in public schools. Sure, the Saudi music industry is pretty dynamic, but all Saudi musicians either taught themselves how to play instruments or had to hire a tutor.
- If you live in Saudi Arabia, you should also forget about crazy birthday parties. Public gatherings of any kind are completely prohibited, so your best option is having a piece of cake at home in your favorite pajamas.
- When the rest of the world obsesses over oil, Saudi people know what’s good. Here, fresh water is way more expensive and valuable. However, that’s probably because all the oil in Saudi Arabia can easily fill more than 4.7 million Olympic-size swimming pools!

Things NOT To Do in Thailand

Thailand is a beautiful country, often called the “land of smiles”, however, that does not mean that you shouldn’t be versed in some of the local customs before visiting. Today we bring you 12 things NOT to do in Thailand so if you're planning a trip there, first you'll want to heed these warnings!

1. Don’t Hug Monks
You'll find the monks are super friendly, but hands off, please. Monks are not allowed to touch women. Even on buses monks are not allowed to sit directly next to a woman. It is also forbidden to stand over or be positioned higher than a monk.

2. Never Use Your Feet
Feet are considered the lowest, dirtiest part of the body in many Asian cultures and the head is the highest. So do not hold doors open with your feet, point your feet towards the Buddha images or angle your feet towards people. Be especially mindful of your feet position when you're sitting or eating on the floor.

3. Don’t Disrespect the Royal Family
You will see many pictures commemorating them throughout the country and it is disrespectful to say anything negative about them. Don't stomp on a Thai coin as it rolls away as you're not only disrespecting the Crown, but also breaking rule 2.

4. Don’t Take Your Clothes Off
Walking around town in beach attire is considered impolite. Be extra-conscious of your attire when visiting temples. Dress preferably in white and women should wear long skirts or pants and have their shoulders covered.

5. Avoid Pointing with Your Fingers
When hailing for a tuk-tuk or beckoning a waiter, do not point
your fingers up. Never clap, snap your fingers, or whistle to get someone’s attention, as Thais regard it akin to calling a dog.

6. Don't Touch a Thai’s Head
Thais see the head as the highest part of the body so refrain from ruffling people's hair. If you happen to by accident, apologize immediately. Thai people will sometimes pat a child on the head, but as a Westerner it’s best not to. Now if you stomp on a coin you'll be breaking 3 rules!

7. Can’t Take Buddha Pictures Out of Thailand
It is technically illegal to take or send any pictures of Buddha out of the country! Nonetheless, many shop owners will still try to sell you pictures, and many tourists snap selfies in front of sacred Buddha statues. Just be discreet and respectful about it.

8. Don’t Lose Your Temper
Thais have a philosophy of keeping their cool;jai yen (cool heart). Thais see raising one’s voice as bad form. Don’t get frustrated, “mai pen rai” as the locals say.

9. Don’t Eat with a Fork
There are no specific dining times so visitors can enjoy cheap yet delicious food all day and night but watch your utensils. You may be given a fork and spoon, but it is only the spoon that touches one’s mouth. Also, chopsticks are only to be used when eating Chinese dishes.

10. Never Whistle at Night
Thais will become very uneasy if they hear a whistle after dark as they believe that whistling at night is bad luck because you’re calling the evil spirits.

11. Don’t Let a Tuk-Tuk Driver Take You To a Gem Shop
This is one of the biggest scams in the tourist areas of Thailand. Drivers will try to persuade you to visit a special gem shop, often a dodgy kick-back shop where tourists are harassed. In extreme cases, they are sometimes drugged and are cheated out of money in exchange for fake jewelry.

12. Don’t Shake Hands
Thais do not like to have personal contact when greeting strangers. Rather, they place both their open palms together at chest height and bow slightly. Do not bow to children or a person of lower status however, as you would be embarrassing them. If you are greeting a person of high importance, bow slightly deeper.

Now that you know how to properly respect the Thai culture, you can enjoy some of the most welcoming and hospitable people in the world.

Don't move to these cities in 2020.

10 Cities You don't want to move to in 2020
.
Welcome back to part 2 of the worst towns for 2020. This is a list of cities and towns that are going downhill and you should probably avoid moving to if you have other options. In the last handful of years, most of America has seen some good times. People have jobs, the economy is growing, crime is down across the board, the towns on the list are sort of swimming against the current. These are towns that all that progress has sort of skipped over. The good time’s train doesn’t make a stop in the towns.
Like I said in the last video there are 4464 cities in the United States and only about 10% are appealing enough for most people to want to move there. This list is in no particular order. Please keep that in mind when leaving the comment. That being said, if you are looking for a new city or town to call home you should probably stay away from.
