The 10 Most Dangerous Tourist Attractions in the World

The 10 Most Dangerous Tourist Attractions in the World

Most people go on vacation because they want to forget about all their troubles. But then, of course, there is the particular breed of human that goes off to far flung places specifically looking for trouble. If that sounds like you, we should be best friends! If you are looking for adventure and are willing to accept the possibility that you won’t make it home alive, here are 10 tourist attractions that are right up your alley!

10. The Kokoda And Black Cat Trails, Papua New Guinea

Where to even begin, guys. First, this 60 mile (100km) trail between the northern and southern coasts of Papua New Guinea involves 10 hour-a-day treks that include hiking mountains, swimming, and walking through hot, steamy jungles full of wild animals, leeches, and natives who aren’t always very friendly. And malaria-carrying mosquitos? You better believe it!
Oh, and you have to carry all of your supplies with you since it’s not like you’re going to find a Burger King or Wal-Mart along the way. Dehydration and broken bones are pretty common, so bring plenty of Gatorade and some spare bones, we suppose.

9. Bikini Atoll, The Marshall Islands

With an island named Bikini, you would assume it must be this amazing paradise full of hot girls and plenty of beach volleyball and refreshing piña coladas. Nope. However, if you’re cool with taking cancer home as a souvenir, this is the place for you. A nuclear testing ground for the US military in the 40s and 50s, more than six decades later the island still has areas with high levels of deadly radiation.
