I can't imagine why people wouldn't want to visit Afghanistan.

I agree, Florida is more a more attractive destination.

They have the Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan?  Rock on!

Nauru greatest country in the world.
All other countries are run by little girls.
Nauru number one exporter of phosphate.
Other countries have inferior phosphate.

I just got back from a Spring Break vacation to Disney with my kids and 5 million other people so all things considered, I'd rather go to Somalia!

It's even sadder than that: they've run out of phosphate, the island was almost destroyed in the mining process, and then they lost all the money they saved up investing it in crazy schemes like a London Broadway musical. These days they get by begging the Australians to keep detainees in a jail there.

Mogadishu seems like such a friendly place.  I mean, ok, there's no electricity, running water, sewers or food.   But friendly, ya know?

So what's the deal with that flaming crater. Why the hell did they set it on fire?

I'm glad the FA didn't tell us the names of all the countries on the list to which it refers.

That's the only way to stay on the list.

Some of the places where there is evidence of the oldest human civilizations are the same places where modern humans tend to be the least civil toward each other.  Ironic or sad?  I'd could spend years trekking thru middle-east countries like Syria, Lebanon, or Iraq to see relics and ancient sites.... if only I weren't afraid of the consequences of being white, non-muslim, and an American.

Places like those could be raking in tourist money if they'd get their shiat together socially.

Kiribati looks like a cool place to visit.  Before they get swallowed up by the ocean.  But half of their water is a nature preserve, so it'd be awesome for divers or snorkeling.

Botched gas extraction site released methane etc into the air; they figured (after they lost their rig) it would be safest to burn off the escaping gases to protect the nearby villages.

"At that time, expectations were that the gas would burn within days, but it is still burning, four decades after it was set on fire."

Finland, Finland, Finland
The country where I want to be
Pony trekking or camping
Or just watching TV
Finland, Finland, Finland
It's the country for me

You're so near to Russia
So far from Japan
Quite a long way from Cairo
Lots of miles from Vietnam

Finland, Finland, Finland
The country where I want to be
Eating breakfast or dinner
Or snack lunch in the hall
Finland, Finland, Finland
Finland has it all

You're so sadly neglected
And often ignored
A poor second to Belgium
When going abroad

Finland, Finland, Finland
The country where I quite want to be
Your mountains so lofty
Your treetops so tall
Finland, Finland, Finland
Finland has it all

Oh focus on Finland friends

Finland, Finland, Finland
The country where I quite want to be
Your mountains so lofty
Your treetops so tall
Finland, Finland, Finland
Finland has it all, Finland has it all

I've been surprised it's not popular with Libertarians. It seems to embody their ideal of minimal government.

Holy crap, that's wild. Imma read more about that later when I'm finished with work.

I say they set the crater afire Just Because They Could.
List makes our own list of W European countries not visited when we lived in W Germany & W Berlin a lifetime ago, sound quite piker-ish. Didn't make it to Andorra, either Ireland or Portugal.

So let me get this straight: the Federated States of Micronesia, the Solomon Islands, Kiribati, and Tuvalu... nothing to do all day except lounge around on tropical beaches... and there are virtually no tourists? Where do I book?

FTFA: "All foreign visitors to North Korea (#16) are limited to a state-curated itinerary and must have an official government "minder" by their side at all times. But for the few Western tourists who venture into the country, that's part of the appeal. "You will rarely get to see propaganda done more explicitly," Garfors writes."

So, they are touring Best Korea for the ironic hipster value of it?  Going to see it for the spectacle of blatant retro-communist propaganda presented without irony but enjoyed for the ironic value?

Quantum Apostrophe: But I thought humans were explorers? Shouldn't we all go explore these places?



Since they're all inhabited, it's rather obvious that humans have already explored them.

I Ate Shergar: Where do I book?


That's kind of the issue, not many airlines fly to any of them.

Silverstaff: Going to see it for the spectacle of blatant retro-communist propaganda presented without irony but enjoyed for the ironic value?


Think of it in terms of experiencing first hand the sort of stuff written about in historry books. Like the mentions of Soviet propaganda in history books. Also North Korea takes it way farther than the Soviets, or anyone else, ever did.

I'm surprised Laos and Burma aren't on the list seeing as neither one is exactly a tourist hot spot

Not surprising to see Somalia high on the list as it's a NRA paradise!

So I guess that means you personally don't need to go?

A lot of people visit Afghanistan.  The only problem is that most of them are soldiers, foreign aid workers, and Islamist militants.

Since it was the Russians I would assume drinking was involved.

Heh, cool. I was one of the 4,700 tourists to Kirbati last year . . .

Also got to see one of the least visited places, Starbuck Island.

I definitely want to see Kiribati, along with a bunch of those other small island nations in the Pacific.  I'm strangely fascinated by them.  They're beautiful, isolated from the rest of the world, and have so much tradition and history.

Read this first (plus it is very amusing, even if you're not thinking of going there):
