Iran is quite calm as far as tourism goes, it's just US government stirring up the pot especially lately.

Depressing that Iran is (currently) the most-guessed answer when it's probably quieter than most of the countries on the list, not to mention several countries not on this list.

I agree. Who is really interested in history, especially Roman or Persian or Mesopotamian, should absolutely go there when peace reigns again. If peace reigns again. And if the monuments are not destroyed by then.

I knew a couple of archaeologists who worked in Syria before the war; they loved it there and were saddened to see so much of its heritage lost. The way they talked about it, I would have liked to have gone there, too.

The dangers for Americans traveling in Iran are not the same as those in Syria or South Sudan or Afghanistan, all ravaged by war. Rather the danger is arbitrary arrest and detention, as advised by the U.S. state department. Americans who run into difficulty in Iran have to depend on the Swiss government to intervene as the U.S. does not maintain diplomatic relations with Iran, limiting your recourse if there is trouble of any kind.

There was loads to see. Sadly, so much has been deliberately destroyed, and much of the rest was collateral damage.

Oct 22, 2018
I tried to get to Iran. Didn't get he visa, but I would have loved to have gone.

I've also considered going to work in Iraq, as I have many friends who have made a lot of money there. And I had plans to travel to Syria before the civil war started I think in 2010... still wish I had gone. Not much left anymore. I wouldn't mind going to Libya. And North Korea I would probably pass on though I've heard trips there are pretty interesting. The rest... yeah I'll skip those.

Level 70
Nov 3, 2018
Strange, North Korea is one place I would love to go to. Though the fact you would be paying to support a despotic dictatorship that routinely tortures its own people to death, does put me off actually going.

It would be as close as we can get to actually going back in time though and it is a pretty unique country.

+26
Level 84
Dec 5, 2018
I think I would be extremely annoyed by the fact that I wasn't allowed to interact with any locals that were not pre-approved, that all experiences were scripted and pre-planned with no deviations from the itinerary permitted, that I'd have government agents looking through my photos determining which I was allowed to keep. It's just a morbid very expensive puppet show they put on for tourists. I know it would be a unique experience but I also think it would be horrible. And that's to say nothing of the fact that your chances of ended up in a forced labor camp are pretty high.

Even though I would travel to some of these places I think the list is pretty reasonable with the exception of Iran. Though I know it is dangerous (mostly because the government is likely to incarcerate you for spying), compared to other countries on the list it doesn't really seem to fit. I know so many people who have visited Iran and had a lovely time doing so.

+10
Level 56
Dec 5, 2018
While North Korea definitely should be on the list, I don't think it fits with the rest of the list at all. The others are because of war, terrorism, lawlessnes/crime - and I think North Korea is probably one of the safest countries in the world considering terrorism/crime. While there is the risk of being locked up I doubt it's any problem if you stay very respectful and don't break the rules. Especially if you aren't American/South Korean/Japanese I would think.

Iran however I don't think fits the list at all. From what I know it's pretty stable and safe, at least if you stay in tourist areas. Probably only on the list because of US relations.

Kal, your reasons against going to N. Korea are the things which happened to my parents when they visited the Soviet Union in the 1970s. They weren't allowed to interact with locals and whenever their group went to a restaurant to eat, their guide went ahead of them and told everyone to leave their tables while the group ate. My mom said she could hardly eat, being watched by all those people standing along the walls waiting for the tourists to finish their meals so they could return to their own lunches. One of the men in the group was a smoker and once he forgot the rules and dropped a cigarette butt on the ground. Immediately a man materialized from nowhere and began tearing it apart as though he was looking for a secret message or something. It brought home to their group that they were always being watched. Still, my folks always said it was the best trip of their lives and there's always hope that N.Korea will someday be more tourist-friendly.

Level 80
Dec 5, 2018
The best way to somehow see a different side of North Korea is to work with them, rather than just looking around. While it's not an option available to many people, there are some wonderful accounts that give also a glimpse behind the scenes: e.g. Guy Delisle's graphic novel Pyongyang (also translated to English) or Liberation Day, the documentary about Laibach's concert in North Korea.

Rlly I heard North Korea just has a ruthless leader poor people and even the Bible got banned. The hairstyles consist of 28 (18 for the women and ten for the men) but Kim’s isn’t even on the list. No social media no YouTube no TikTok no shows (how are they surviving without tv shows like spongebob) and no video games. No leaving your tour guides and forced to stay for the rest of ur life if u were born there. Wow. Such a sad country.

Any interest I have in visiting Yemen is mostly from the fact that all the Yemenis I met while I was living in Saudi Arabia were all such friendly people. But I still don't think I would feel safe going right now. Socotra might be okay as it's fairly isolated.

Yes and no. There are direct flights now. If you're creative enough, you can get a license, which is not granted for tourism. Without it, you still have to detour to another country.

The countries on this list aren't necessarily forbidden to US tourists it's just that the State Department advises American citizens to not travel to them for any reason. That could be due to high levels of crime, social unrest, kidnapping, civil war, terrorism, breakdown in social services, or when the government of the country has a habit of detaining American tourists without good cause. So the countries are deemed not safe to travel to. There are other levels of travel advisories, which are:

Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions

Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution

Level 3: Reconsider Travel

and Level 4, the highest, Do Not Travel

Level 50
Jan 25, 2020

I think they all fit in to one of the four unless the State Department hasn't bothered making a page about them. Maybe some places like the Vatican or Tuvalu?

Level 52
Oct 16, 2020
Small countries like Monaco and The Vatican are just lumped into bigger countries, France and Italy respectively. Tuvalu might be lumped into Australia, but I'm not sure.

It would be rather random to lump Tuvalu in with Australia. Samoa or Kiribati would be more logical, as its between the two of them.

I think I would sooner travel to Venezuela right now than Niger. Though I know there's a risk of kidnapping and a fairly severe breakdown in government services in the former. Niger doesn't seem much safer to me than Mali, Libya, or South Sudan. Though it's still not one of the 30 countries currently on the Do Not Travel list at the State Department website. Meanwhile, Georgia is. Thinking that this was crazy and maybe due to the outbreak of violence with Armenia I looked up why and it's actually due to COVID. Though that still seems odd to me considering the other 160 or so countries that are not on the do not travel list. Maybe it's a combination of the two.

Lol, the State Department is officially pathetic. They are still rating Sweden as a Level 4. There are virtually no Covid cases or deaths in Sweden, nor is Sweden imposing any large scale restrictions that would affect tourists. This is just an example. There are dozens of other countries marked as Level 4 for absolutely no reason. This is cowardice, plain and simple. We'll update the quiz if the State Department ever gets their heads out of their butts.

This has now reached peak idiocy. Senegal is currently in level 1 (safest) while Singapore is in level 4 (least safe). The State Department has gone full clown.
+8
Level 84
Nov 3, 2021
You are much more likely to die from COVID than you are from... mongoose attacks or whatever you're worried about in Senegal. Also much more likely to die from this than violent crime. There are about 400-500k homicides worldwide every year. Last year there were 5 million worldwide COVID deaths. But based on several things QM has posted I get the sense that wherever he turns for news has some interest in downplaying the latter.
+5
Level 71
Nov 3, 2021
I think Quizmaster is referring, in large parts, to vaccination rates. Senegal has vaccinated 8% of its population whereas Singapore has vaccinated 82% of its population. While I agree that COVID remains a pretty big threat and that unvaccinated people should not under any circumstance be traveling abroad, I definitely think that traveling in a mostly vaccinated place like Singapore at this point is safer than traveling in a mostly unvaccinated place like Senegal (especially since the former has some of the world's best healthcare and the latter I'm guessing has pretty poor healthcare).

Tonga had a devastating volcano eruption and the country infrastructure is not quite functioning. It's probably closed for tourism anyway, but it's not so much being dangerous but you may not be able to get help if you need it. (Kind of similar with Iran, of course it's generally safe to travel, but if something goes wrong there's little US govt can do for you, plus arbitrary detentions when it's politically convenient)

I was in Central African Republic a couple months ago to see the gorillas and nothing bad happened to me. The Russian mercenaries have inflicted major casualties on the rebel groups there. I was told by the lodge manager that they're the reason the civil war ended in that country.

Why Tonga and Belarus?

Also I know Myanmar was killing the Rohingyas but why would Americans not of South Asian descent be in enough danger for the US to tell them not to go there?

Tonga had a volcano eruption earlier this year, so its probably more a of "plz don't go, they're recovering and there aren't a ton a services if some thing goes wrong". Belarus because of their involvement in the Russia-Ukraine war and what happened with than Ryanair flight.

I am totally ignorant when it comes to Papua New Guinea. I always just thought of it as a beautiful, tropical place with Birds of Paradise. Had no idea it was known to be so dangerous. Time to go down that rabbit hole, I guess.

Really enjoyed this, I used to go onto the Foreign Office website at my old job when I was bored to see which countries had areas (or were fully) red, so that travel was not advised.

I'd be interested to see what differences there were with a UK list, slightly fewer countries I imagine.
