Top 7 countries women shouldn’t travel alone
Even if your friends or a young man cannot keep you company, this does not mean that you should say goodbye to dreams of relaxation and sit down in the city for the next two weeks. But so that your trip is not hopelessly spoiled, the choice of direction should be approached as responsibly as possible. Passion.ru compiled a ranking of countries where women should not go alone. For your own good!
It would seem, what dangers can the fair sex in one of the most developed countries in the world? However, there are negative aspects and there are not so few of them. The most courageous and brave tourists who, in which case, know how to behave in a particular situation, usually tend to get into this reserved corner of the Earth. And if you are not one of them, then choose something less exotic for your solo journey. So, for example, if you suddenly decide to swim in the warm ocean waters, then you should make sure to start that there are no sea bees, tiny jellyfish and blue-ringed octopuses with deadly poison nearby. Yes, and a meeting with a white shark, you see, will also be very inappropriate. In addition, acquaintance with unattractive spider-centipedes, snakes, which are found here in large numbers, peacefully dozing crocodiles or fluffy kangaroos does not bode well for you. And if everything is clear with the first ones, then stroking seemingly quite peaceful kangaroos is simply dangerous. This animal can knock you out with one blow, and at best you will get rid of bruises and abrasions. Yes, and numerous stories of tourists about how snakes crawled into their room or imposingly crawled between rows in an airplane, driving passengers into a stupor, is not at all fiction. Local residents have long been accustomed to such tests for strength, but the ladies who decided to visit the Australian continent for the first time alone, you certainly will not envy.
To begin with, this country, where the Olympic Games were held several years ago, turned out to be not so beautiful for tourists and especially for women. “But what about the hot Latin American men?”, You will reasonably note, and you will be partly right. In the same Rio de Janeiro, for example, it is much calmer than in Sao Paulo, so we will focus on this city. If, for example, you find yourself in this “stone jungle” or a city where most of the finances of the whole country revolve, then you should not only be careful, but remember as much as possible everything that you went through once in the survival lessons. So, for example, according to statistics, it is the ladies who, despite the intensified police patrols, most often become victims of robberies, giving scammers all the most valuable, including expensive cameras, handbags and jewelry. In addition, if you suddenly accidentally get into favelas (slums), where there is no developed infrastructure and a high crime rate, there is a chance to not get out of there at all, so you should be extremely careful and not move away from tourist routes. In addition, according to the same statistics, up to 40 thousand people are killed annually in this country, and the rape of pretty tourists here becomes an ordinary occurrence: the police only shrug their hands and prefer not to mess with the lively local hooligans.
And although this country is distinguished by its original culture, amazing nature and cheerful disposition of local residents, foreign tourists are not particularly favored here. Unfortunately, Mexico gained the fame of a country where they can kidnap a person literally in broad daylight, and then demand a very impressive ransom from their relatives. In addition, criminals of all stripes live in the Mexican metro: wallets, gold, jewelry, modern gadgets and other expensive things run the risk of not passing the test and disappearing forever in the pockets of enterprising thieves. And don’t even think about making an evening promenade in poor neighborhoods, incautiously dressing in too overtly outfit. The local macho needs just one look at your mini dress or skirt to conclude that you are not averse to frolic. In addition, experienced travelers recommend not tasting street food prepared in violation of all conceivable sanitation rules. After all, poorly fried pork or fish become the cause of serious diseases, and poor-quality water can also damage your body. Therefore, it is better to choose only bottled water, sold in expensive stores. And you should not chase a cheap taxi – this is definitely not the case when you need to save. Not only can you lose the most valuable things, but also suffer at the hands of the taxi driver himself.
If you are used to not trusting everything that is covered in the news and still decided to visit this country, then be prepared for the fact that stories about partisans hiding in impassable forests, with constant shootings in large cities, are not at all…
