But here we will discuss those travel destinations that are not suitable anymore. Some of them are too polluted or crowded or even unsafe to live in. Following are the names and short description of them.
Italy’s Hot Spots
Venice’s canal system, which is made up of 150 canals, is the city’s biggest charm and one of the reasons tourists come to this floating, romantic city. Since the city is surrounded by water, it is vulnerable to floods. Especially as sea levels rise due to climate change. Measures are being put into place to reserve the lagoon ecosystem. Such as not permitting large cruise ships into the historic center, and it will soon be introducing an entrance fee to discourage mass tourism for day trips.
The Amalfi Coast is also no stranger to crowds. The city recently introduced a number plate system during its high season to reduce traffic congestion. People with odd or even number plates can only drive on certain days, which limits the cars on the roads. Advocates are calling for it to return next year.
Snake Island – The Deadliest destinations On Earth
There is an island about 25 miles off Brazil’s coast where no local would ever dare to walk. There are rumors that the last fisherman who strayed too close to his shores was found drifting in his boat days later, lifeless in a blood pool. The mysterious island is known as Ilha da Queimada Grande. And setting foot there is reportedly so dangerous that the Brazilian government has made it illegal for anyone to visit.
The island’s threat comes in the form of the golden lancehead snakes a pit viper species and one of the world’s deadliest serpents. The is certainly the most dangerous place on earth.
Russia and Ukraine
The State Department says travelers should avoid travel to Russia due to its “unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine by Russian military forces.” They also cite harassment against U.S. citizens, arbitrary enforcement of local law, limited flights in and out of Russia, terrorism, and the Embassy’s limited ability to assist citizens in the country.
Once ranked a “medium risk” country, Ukraine was upgraded to “extreme risk” after getting invaded by Russia in February. Over the weekend, Ukrainian nationals fled Kherson after sustained Russian shelling rendered the area virtually unlivable.
Islands don’t always have efficient access to water. This is why Maui County had to introduce compulsory water restrictions on residents for non-essential water use. These restrictions were not enforced on the resorts in South and Central Maui. Which feature multiple pools, manicured lawns, and golf courses.
This uneven distribution of water between residents and tourist sites has led to conflicts and resentment, especially as the cost of living is being driven up by an increase in short-term rentals. This also causes more to become homeless, which is why some locals have called for tourists to stop visiting.
Gates Of Hell – Door To Hell
The Turkmenistan Darvaza Gas Crater is known as the “Gates of Hell.” It is a natural gas field within an underground cave; Geologists set it on fire to prevent methane gas from spreading, and it has been burning since 1971. It is located in the middle of the Karakum Desert, about 260 kilometers north of Turkmenistan’s capital, near the village of Derweze, Ashgabat.
The gas reserve that has been discovered here is one of the World’s most extensive natural gasses. Locals gave the name “Door to hell” to the area, referring to the explosion, boiling mud, and orange flames in the large crater, 70 meters (230 ft) in diameter. The hot spots spread across an area 60 meters (200ft) long and roughly 20 meters (66 ft) deep. It is among the top 10 dangerous places in the world.
