    Default Tourism and Kidnap capitals

    Would you avoid places which are McMafia or kidnap capitals but which are still listed as major destinations for tourism.

    I'm not sure I would avoid based on that. I would consider it (and probably research the place). You hear a lot of stories about tourists being kidnapped and murdered, etc, especially in some places.

    I wouldn't choose destinations based on a list of top places to visit, either. Tons of tourists being there is a drawback, not an advantage.

    Yeah, I wondered about peoples opinions because I know anywhere can be dangerous and it wasnt too long ago people actively avoided NI because of its reputation, some parts of it I actively avoid and I live here.

    Although I heard from friends who had a terrible experience in Turkey and I'm not sure I would want to visit that place now, while people have tried to start fights with me in Spain, locals that is, they never had the nerve to actually attack, that's only happened here at home in NI.

    In the story about Turkey a guy I know was beaten up, I think his drink could have been drugged too, but his girl friend who a group of african guys where trying to get into a car fought as hard as she could and managed to get away. It was mad to hear about it because previously I'd only heard of that story of the couple attacked in Australia which was in part inspiration for the creation of the horror film Wolf Creek.
