Cape Town is renowned for its mesmerizing natural wonders and diverse traditions and cultures. It also hosts the amazingly inspiring Table Mountain National Park as well as several other interesting attractions.
But before you reach for your travel bag, Cape Town is also regarded as one of the most dangerous places in the world, mainly due to the engraved corruption that took over everyone, even police officers who actually pave the way for countless illegal activities, such as drug dealing, muggings, robberies, and murders.
This has resulted in a very dangerous city for tourists and locals alike. To add some numbers, there are 65.53 homicides per 100,000 residents.

Not many people book flights or even plan traveling to Pakistan, but those who do should probably forget about it. “The City of Light” is Pakistan’s largest city, and like many other cities on this list, Karachi suffers from similar devastating problems, including corruption, kidnappings, targeted killings, and much more.
But Karachi takes these crimes to the next level by involving innocent children. It should be mentioned that even though the crime rate has decreased in the past few years, Karachi remains one of the top dangerous cities around the globe.
