The world is your oyster, and there are so many different places out there that you’re probably craving to explore. Though there are hidden wonders in every crevice of the globe, these places may not be the best choice for Americans to venture off to.
Whether they pose a threat to travelers’ safety, or may cause detrimental harm to one’s physical health, here is our list of the 20 worst places for Americans to visit around the world, as well as the beauty that exists in each particular location that, sadly, Americans are missing out on.
1. Saudi Arabia
The U.S. Department of State advises Americans to exercise extreme caution when visiting Saudi Arabia, due to, in part, the increased amount of armed conflict.
Despite the bad rap Saudi Arabia receives, with hopes of peace, there may come a time when Americans will be able to enjoy all of the magnificent sights this country has to offer, including its staggering mountains, its lush fields, and its barren deserts. One place in particular, Edge of the World in Riyadh, was once an insanely popular tourist destination. The scenic plateau, which runs over 430-miles long, provides jaw-dropping views of the country and endless views of Saudi Arabia’s horizon.
