Traveling is the best gift you can give yourself, and as any gift, you have to make sure that it is safe and won’t be the reason for your unhappiness. Before booking a flight to anywhere new, you must be very aware of all the dangers that may occur, during the night and the day.
However, there are some destinations that are very popular, yet, very dangerous because of some events that happened recently, which is why the key to a successful travel is to know what to expect and to make sure that you will come back home safe, sane, and happy.
Moscow, St. Petersburg – Russia
Moscow and St. Petersburg are the most popular destinations in Russia, especially with FIFA World Cup that is starting in a few weeks, the country will be filled with tourists and soccer fans. However, considering the strained relations between the USA and Russia, the caution must be taken.
When you travel there, try to avoid being involved in any protesting against the state. Also, don’t carry a large amount of money with you, it is best to use your credit card anyway.
Keep in mind that recently, Russia has been dealing with some gender and racial issues, so the best plan is to travel with a licensed tour guide and to stick to their plan.
Acapulco – Mexico
Mexico’s reputation has been ruined within the last couple of years due to tourists going through scary situations with locals, and the drug gangs that are doing their “jobs” in many regions of the country. But, the most affected region by the violence in the west coast, especially Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco.
Don’t travel to these cities unless you know exactly where you are going. It is not safe to wander around with no plan or a clue about where you are. Try to stick with your tour guide because traveling solo or with a group is not the safest option at the moment.
