50 Places Women Should Never Travel Alone

Morocco

The beautiful ceramics, jewelry, and lanterns that characterize Moroccan craftsmanship may be better left to an Amazon delivery rather than a personal visit.

Women who travel alone are at exceptionally high risk for harassment throughout their visit. Additionally, Morocco just doesn’t have a good track record with enforcing women’s rights. Though violent crime is not a major issue for solo travelers, verbal harassment certainly is, and there’s very little that can be done about it.

Kenya, East Africa

Lions, elephants, and rhinos are prevalent amidst Kenya’s reserves, making this coastal country a popular destination for more exotic travelers. Unfortunately, Kenya has been highlighted by the United Nations as being a place where women are constantly subjected to violence, regardless of age.

Tourist kidnappings are also prevalent in Kenya. If lions, elephants, and rhinos are your thing, opt for a safer way to see these majestic beasts.

Bogota, Colombia

Tourism is certainly on the rise in Colombia, as the country continually makes steps to repair a troublesome past. Although it may be safer in comparison to the past, the stark reality is that sexual violence against women is a prevalent theme.

The public transportation in Bogota was ranked as the most unsafe public transport in the world. On a global scale, that’s certainly saying something. Women traveling alone should not only steer clear of Bogota’s red buses, but they may want to avoid the city altogether.

Worst Celebrity Statues from Around the World

We buy their albums, tickets to their movies, and all the products, brands, and questionable colognes that they endorse. Surely that’s enough to quell the hungry egos of some of the world’s biggest celebrities. Well, not exactly. You see, immortalization via cultural significance, world records, and millions of dollars sometimes isn’t enough. Tradition dictates that our celebrity idols need to be re-created in gold, bronze, wax, and stone, so not even the elements can dismantle the memory of their monumental rise to the top.

If you’re an active traveler or live in a uniquely historic part of the world, chances are you’ve been exposed to UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This phrase is thrown around frequently.
