Our planet is a beautiful place with countless fascinating destinations everyone should visit.

We will give you the absolute list of destinations from all corners of Earth you should never visit!

In 1986, there was the biggest nuclear incident after the Second World War with the epicenter in the city of Chernobyl in Ukraine. A nuclear reactor had melted causing an explosion that instantly killed hundreds and leaving even more wounded or with long-term health issues. Almost 30 km around the site of the blast had to be evicted because it was dangerous to live there. The situation did not change a lot until present times so visiting this area would be almost suicide.

Brazil is truly a beautiful country that contains so many hit destinations ranging from attractive beaches, magnificent cities to scenic areas of the Amazon. But Ilha de Queimada Grande or the Island of Snakes is definitively not one of the reasons you would like to come to Brazil for a vacation. Just have in mind that not many researchers dared to come to this island because some of the most venomous on the planet live here. Even if you would be crazy enough to want to visit the Snake Island you will need a permit from the local authorities. So be wise and just pick a beautiful beach instead.

Izu Islands in Japan is another place on Earth that had to be evacuated but this time for natural reasons. Namely, these Islands are located in a volcanic area with dangerously elevated levels of gas that are extremely lethal. But despite those extreme conditions some of its inhabitants decided to return to these islands. There is just a small catch; they have to carry gas masks with them at all time!

People usually visit gardens to admire their beauties and the glory of the Mother Nature. They present us the most beautiful plant species, and we cannot resist coming back again and again. But if you are an expat who lives in England, then avoiding Alnwick Poison Gardens would be an intelligent decision. Namely, this garden is devoted only to plants that can kill you. There are many British poisonous plants as well as some unusual species. For example, there are tobacco, belladonna and mandrake in Alnwick Poison Garden.

Being an expat in Burma might be great, but you also have to be careful when it comes to visiting dangerous areas. One such area is Ramree Island. It is a vast swamp and home to an enormous number of crocodiles. The place itself is the deadliest in the world, so no matter how adventurous you may be, listen to the advice and don’t go there. You should not visit the place, indeed. Once a thousand of Japanese soldiers entered the swamp, and only 20 of them were found alive.

A significant number of expats live in Canada. But not all of them know what places they should avoid when travelling around the state and visiting different touristic places. The one you should avoid is Asbestos mine. Namely, asbestos contains six silicate minerals that are highly resistant to fire and sound absorption abilities. Science claims it causes cancer and a variety of other dangerous diseases. For instance, all European mines are banned from using asbestos. Such a ban is not done in Canada and workers in these mines are not even required to wear any respiratory protection. Therefore, you should choose between your health and adventure. 

 

Great Pacific Garbage Patch

The Pacific Ocean is not as clean as you think. The place usually described as ‘The Pacific Trash Vortex’ is the biggest trash surface in the world, possibly. According to the research, the surface of the trash vortex is larger than the state of Texas. The main characteristic of the patch is a high concentration of pelagic plastics and chemical sludge. So, why would you want to visit the place covered with garbage when you can enjoy visiting natural beauties where your health is not endangered?

 

By visiting any of the areas mentioned above, you are putting at risk not only your health but also the health of your accompaniment. After all, spending your money to travelling around the world should at least consider spending it on something beautiful. So, if you avoid any of these destinations, you will not regret it.
