#Acapulco es nominado como uno de los peores destinos turisticos del mundo por la violencia que vive.

By Sounak Mukhopadhyay 

Travel is supposed to be fun. The word itself promises new adventures, unique experiences and memorable moments. However, there are certain tourist destinations in the world that may give all of the above for all the wrong reasons. Here are four of the worst travel destinations in the world.

The Beaches Of Acapulco (Mexico)

While the city of Acapulco is often considered to be a great place to relax for its fabulous beaches, it is also notorious for a high crime rate. The murder rate here in 2013 was 142 in every 100,000 citizens. The crime rates are often defended to be drug-related. It is said that the tourism is not affected by it. However, tourists have every reason to be apprehensive as there is hardly any law enforcement patrolling on the beaches to give the tourists a sense of protection. The U.S. Department of State’s “Mexico Travel Warning” advised tourists to stay in a protected zone in the city in case they decide to travel to this place. [Source]

Sydney Fish Market, Australia

Established in 1945, the Sydney Fish Market in Australia often attracts many tourists. However, most of the tourists get disappointed as there is hardly anything interesting to see or do in this place. Even if a tourist happens to enjoy buying fish, this may not be a great choice as sellers here are often accused of selling overpriced fish. Even the view of the harbour is not a great one as large cement factories block the views. [Source[

Niagara Falls (Canada – U.S.A border)

There was a time when the Niagara Falls was considered to be among the most romantic destinations in the world. However, along with the rapid growth in the tourism infrastructure of the region, the Niagara Falls suffered explicit commercialisation. The Canadian part of the spot is often criticised for several reasons. Waiting in customs queues and lack of parking facilities can be hassling for many tourists. [Source]

The Kokoda and Black Cat Trails (Papua New Guinea)

The Kokoda Trail spreads between the southern and the northern coasts in the country. Even though the place is often appreciated for its rainforests, exotic animals and clean water; the place is highly treacherous and leech-infested. The Australian forces fought with the Japanese here during the WWII. While thousands of people visit the place every year, there is a constant threat of the worst. The 10-hour walk every day while carrying every essential material can be overwhelming. The threats in the area include broken bones, illness and dehydration. A group of tourists were attacked by local convicts in Sept 2013. An Australian tourist was hurt when his leg was wounded by a spear. [Source]
