Tuvalu - Horrific facilities and accommodation plus nothing to do or see rate this as one of the worst and most boring places I've been to.  North Korea was more interesting despite the propaganda and constant barrage of laughable rubbish espoused to tourists as well as the restrictions placed on visitors to North Korea.

Other candidates include Chechnya, Colombia and Honduras, none of which rate highly in my list of countries to re-visit due to crime, kidnapping, murder and lawlessness in general.

I never say "will never visit" again but I do have some black listed countries that I recommend not to visit a second time:

- Thailand. For obvious reasons. (Plus I have read two books about how they treat
   people, especially foreign suspects, in their penitentiary institutions).
- Afghanistan (for obvious reasons)
- Pakistan
- Congo (Demortic Republic): Security (even when i visited while it was still being run by
   then President Mobutu I had to rely on a U.N. staffer to drive me from the Zambian border to Lubumbashi to be safe from predatory soldiers).


Although I have fond memories of people from the Philippines and Indonesia, I was negatively overwhelmed in their countries by poverty and crime which made my trips there highly unsafe.

China is not on your list???  How shocking, given that you only have bad things to say about  everything in relation to the country and civilization.

Interesting List.
Thailand - "foreign suspects" - only those who consider themselves as such. Is that the advice ?
Afghanistan - ( for obvious reasons ) - And what are those ? It is not that bad there. I was there as recent as this September.
Pakistan - ? Again, it is not that bad at all. I frequently travel there and have had no problems at all.

Oh dee:r, Ms Always Wrong is in her element again - making mistaken allegations about yours truly... May I suggest you read more Seneca and less Cosmopolitan, - you might have a pleasant surprise once in a while.
