Is there a country you want to visit that everyone advises you not to go to?

My friend wants to go to Syria for some reason but she’s definitely not going because of terrorism.

Fun fact: I saw a video of some American journalists who went to Somalia. Nothing happened to them but everyone there walks around with an AK-47 as protection and is almost illegal to walk down the street alone. It’s crazy! The only way to get to Somalia is to have a Somali citizen vouch for you, in these guys’ case, they had a Somali-American journalist friend help them get in.

Are there any dangerous countries you want to visit? Would you go if the country figured out its political issues?

  • Oh yeah, plenty of them. I won't go when there's a negative travel advisory, though, and I won't go if I feel it's risky, either.

    There was a lot to see in Syria, but it's unclear how much remains. It was an up and coming destination until 2011.

  • I don’t know if you’d count Russia as a dangerous country. That’s one place I would definitely check out given the opportunity

    • No I don’t think it’s dangerous but they jack up the prices for tourists though.

  • Yes Myanmar ( formerly Burma ) . I am a fan of their food , culture and esp the local combat sport similar to neighbouring Muay Thai , but more vicious , Lethwei. Was closed off to most foreigners until fairly recently.

  • Yes. I have always wanted to go to Thailand. But there is a huge stigma of visiting it and the current political climate us sketchy at best.
