Pakistan ranked fourth most unsafe country for tourists

Increasing militancy, frequent terror attacks and deteriorating law and order especially from the last decade, it comes as no surprise that Pakistan has ranked fourth on a list of the 20 most dangerous countries in the world for tourism.

Pakistan earned this distinction on the World Economic Forum’s Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report, released earlier this week, which analyses the state of the tourism sector and travel in 136 countries.

The report ranks the safety of each of these countries based on measuring “the extent to which a country exposes tourists and businesses to security risks mainly related to serious harm to people (violence and terrorism).” However, petty crime is not taken into account.

From the list, here are 10 of the most dangerous countries in the world for tourists so you might know which ones to avoid.

1: Colombia

2: Yemen

3: El Salvador

4: Pakistan

5: Nigeria

6: Venezuela

7: Egypt

8: Kenya
