But that your trip was not hopelessly spoiled, the choice of direction should be approached as responsibly as possible. Passion.ru made a ranking of countries where women should not go alone. For your own good!
It would seem that what dangers can lie in wait for the fair sex in one of the most developed countries of the world? However, there are negative aspects and they are not so little. In this protected area of the Earth usually tend to get the most daring and courageous tourists who, if anything, know how to behave in a given situation. And if you are not one of them, then choose to travel “solo” something less exotic. 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 octopus with deadly poison. And the meeting with the white shark, you see, will also be very inconvenient. In addition, familiarity with unattractive spiders-centipedes, snakes, which are found here in large numbers, peacefully dormant crocodiles or fluffy kangaroos does not Bode well for you. And if the first all clear, but iron seem quite peaceful kangaroo is simply dangerous. This animal can knock you out with one blow and at best you will get off with bruises and abrasions. And numerous stories of tourists about how snakes crawled into their room or impressively crawled between the rows on the plane, driving passengers into a stupor, is not a fiction. Locals have long been accustomed to such tests of strength, but the ladies who decided to visit the Australian continent for the first time alone, just do not envy.
Let’s start with the fact that this country, where a few years ago the Olympic games were held, was not so great for tourists and especially for women. “What about hot Latin American men?”- you will notice reasonably and will be partly right. In the same Rio de Janeiro, for example, is much quieter than in Sao Paulo, so we will focus on this city. If, for example, you are in these “stone jungle” or the city where most of the finances of the whole country revolves, then you should not just be careful, but as much as possible to remember everything that you were once in the lessons of survival. For example, according to statistics, it is ladies, despite the increased police patrols, often become victims of robberies, giving fraudsters all the most valuable, including expensive cameras, handbags and jewelry. In addition, if you happen to accidentally bring in the favelas (slums), where there is no developed infrastructure and high crime rate, there is a chance not to get out, so you should be very careful and do not move away from the tourist routes. In addition, according to the same statistics, in this country every year up to 40 thousand people are killed, and the rape of pretty tourists here is becoming a common phenomenon: the police only shrugs and prefers not to mess with the brisk local hooligans.
And although this country has a distinctive culture, amazing nature and cheerful disposition of local residents, foreign tourists are not particularly welcome. Unfortunately, for Mexico secured the glory of the country, where they can kidnap a man literally in broad daylight, and then demand from his family a very impressive ransom. In addition, the Mexican subway is home to criminals of all stripes: wallets, gold, jewelry, modern gadgets and other expensive things risk not pass the test and disappear forever in the pockets of enterprising thieves. And do not try to make the evening promenade in poor neighborhoods, inadvertently dressed in too revealing outfit. Local macho enough just one look at your mini-dress or skirt to conclude that you do not mind frolic. In addition, seasoned travelers recommend not to try street food cooked in violation of all conceivable rules of sanitation. After all, poorly roasted pork or fish cause serious diseases, and poor-quality water can also cause damage to your body. Therefore, it is better to choose only bottled water, sold in expensive stores. And do not chase a cheap taxi – this is definitely not the case when you need to save. Not only that, you can lose the most valuable things, so also to suffer at the hands of the taxi driver.
If you are used to not trust everything that is covered in the news and still decided to visit this country, then be prepared for the fact that the stories of the guerrillas hiding in the impenetrable forests, with constant gunfights in major cities are not fiction, so tickle your nerves you will be able to. In addition, we should not forget that in Colombia there is and is developing sexual slavery, and the police are practically not engaged in the investigation of sexual violations against foreign tourists, than, in fact, indulge local men. Relatively safe is the North of the country, where the richest areas are located, which are heavily guarded by police. And here in the poorest quarters in the South of the country gangs of criminals who create only that consider it necessary rage.
Surely you also watched Indian movies as a child and imagined how one day you will find yourself in a country where serious passions are boiling, and the inhabitants communicate exclusively through songs and dances. However, modern India bears little resemblance to that romantic image, in which there are incredibly beautiful women with a fly on their forehead, noble men, like Raja Kapoor in his youth, yoga and wise brahmanas. For example, according to sad statistics, rape occurs almost every 20 minutes in this country. But police officers very melancholically react to the similar fact, considering that local men want love too, and obviously not Platonic. And the appearance of the ultrasound machine here has increased the number of abortions to record numbers, because it is the boy in the family who is considered to be the support, the owner, the successor of the genus, but from the girls they expect only trouble. In addition, swimming in the waters of the sacred Ganges can reward you with a “bouquet” of unknown exotic diseases and spoil the impression of India for a long time. If you and it does not stop, then try to choose a safer Goa, located in the North-West of India and is considered the main resort. It is there that tourists gather every year, who are attracted by the beauty of this controversial country.
Seasoned travelers speak of the Philippines as a country of wonderful Islands, but try to avoid topics relating to Tavi-Tavi – island where crime is flourishing and almost legally operate entire gangs of thieves and dealers in illegal drugs. Therefore, if you suddenly some wind will bring in this place, you risk being left without money, without jewelry and shattered psyche. In addition, there are cases when tourists mixed something in drinks, drinking that, they instantly lost consciousness, and with it something valuable. Therefore, it is better not to tempt fate on the strength and not to come here alone.
In recent years, this country is so fond of Russian tourists that many of them come to Thailand as their home, and some even got there real estate. However, there are disadvantages that spoil the overall impression of this hot country. As recognized by the Thais themselves, for example, they do not know how to drive a car. No, of course, they will take the wheel and go where they need to, but they will do it so badly that they will discourage you from using their services. It, according to them, is connected with mad traffic on roads. So if you suddenly decided to cross the road, it is better to think 10 times whether you really want to do it. Drivers often accelerate and brake at all not where from them you expect and there is a probability to appear under wheels of a car. Scooters, of course, they drive much better, but in this case it is better not to tempt fate. Also be prepared for the fact that here you will be overcome by mosquitoes, ants and even lizards. Well, who has not heard of prostitution, which is legalized in Thailand back in 1960? Moreover, many of these girls work in seemingly ordinary massage parlors, but usually they offer much more than just a massage and look out for tourists who could be diluted for a decent amount.
