Posted in Cities Comments (626)

Traveling around the world is a great way to spend your vacation time, but not all cities are as charming as the ones in the travel brochures. While every large city has its problems, some are a little worse than others. According to the research published by the Citizen Council for Public Safety and Criminal Justice, a private organization and part of the Mexican Employers’ Association, there are 10 most dangerous cities in the world. The ranking is based on official crime statistics provided by local governments, though Middle Eastern cities were not included in the report, as the New York Daily News notes. Check out the list of 10 most dangerous cities in the world.

    i was in Sanaa, Yemen a few months ago, it is nice but very dangerous. i would visit it again as a tourist if the situation changed…

    I think your list is wrong. I’ve lived in more than 6 cities around the globe and one of them is Chihuahua. And although it used to be really dangerous, now it’s a relatively safe place to hang around and to live. It’s also very beautiful, just like Acapulco is as well. I believe there are places far more dangerous right now such as some cities in Brazil or in the US. Even in Mexico cities such as Morelia or Cd Victoria are perceived as more dangerous now. Just to let you know. Regards.

    Most of NYC isn’t that dangerous anymore. Look up violent crime stats, this isn’t 1992. You’re probably worse off going to Yonkers or Newburgh.

    The US is the most dangerous of all. Most Americans are fortunate enough to live in a safe and clean area but we are all victims of the insanely powerful gangters: The FDA. Other countries ban chemicals that are harmful, not here…sickness is an investment of the elite.

    As far as actual violence and crime goes, it’s avoidable to tourists. No one is going to visit the projects or a ghetto or an area in poverty while on VACATION. Like most Americans enjoy the safety of a resort in places conversely unsafe as Mexico and the Islands…a traveler affording travel is generally smart enough to research their trip. You aren’t going to vacation at Disney and then book a room in Watts.

    I’ve lived in Southern California and Boston. Including stays with a relative in the Boston projects and hotel stay Dorchester. I’ve neveer seen a gun, a robbery, or a body. A little common sense goes a long way…in any corner of the world:)

    Ugh, no one is going to Detroit.
