Avoid: The Most Dangerous Countries in the World


Have you ever wondered what are the most dangerous countries in the world? This article will showcase 7 countries that are dangerous to travel to. So if you ever planned to travel to one of these countries, you should more than likely rethink your choices.

7. Somalia

Somalia Mogadishu

Somalia has long been a war-torn country and a haven for pirates. It is still listed as one of the world’s most dangerous countries to visit. Americans have been taken hostage there and violence is frequent.


Mogadishu has been the site of assassination attempts and militant groups call it home.

6. Libya

Libya is currently under a U.S. Travel Warning. The U.S. Embassy has been closed since July 2014. Violence has been rampant in this country and it is recommended that all travelers avoid Libya for safety reasons.

There are unpredictable militant groups and the area is in the midst of unrest. Visitors could be targets of kidnapping, violence, and killings.

5. Iran

Iranian people have the potential to be hostile toward American citizens. It is unwise to travel to the area because you may be arrested or harassed while visiting this country. U. S. citizens have been imprisoned for trumped up charges of espionage or posing a threat to national security.

Travelers to Iran are taking a great risk by crossing into this country. Christians are subject to arrest, and there are no diplomatic relations between the United States and Iran.

4. Mali

Americans are warned not to travel to Mali because of militant groups that are targeting westerners for kidnapping and violent attacks. Mali is also a location affected by the Ebola epidemic.

It is strongly recommended that American tourists avoid visiting this due to its lack of general safety. United Nations peacekeepers have been under attack by rockets, bombings, explosives, and land mines thus making Mali one of the most dangerous countries in the world

These attacks have resulted in casualties and multiple injuries. Terrorists have taken credit for these attacks.

3. Liberia

Liberia is in the midst of a health crisis with the severe Ebola outbreak. The embassy families were evacuated due to limited medical care in the area, but the State Department has recently lifted the travel ban since the outbreak has gotten somewhat under control.

There is still limited medical care within this country’s borders and it is unwise to travel to this area. Some airlines have stopped flying into Monrovia, so getting a flight in or out of this country can be especially difficult  in an emergency situation.

2. Afghanistan

Although it is a beautiful country, Afghanistan is a dangerous and deadly destination for Americans. Residents who support the Taliban and criminals who roam the streets in the evenings make this area inhospitable to tourists.

There is no lodging for visitors and there are no tourist destinations. It is best to avoid traveling to this country.

1. Honduras

Honduras is a beautiful country  that must be avoided at all costs. It is the country with the highest murder rate in the world. It is home to gang violence and drugs.

A myriad of tourist destinations exist, but there are much safer beaches to visit around the world. For safety’s sake, it is best to avoid the cities and beaches of Honduras also known as the most dangerous country in the world or it could be your final destination.
