An organization called “International SOS” just released this color-coded map. It shows the most dangerous locations in the world.
Green – If the country is green it means the risk is insignificant. Crime is low, infrastructure is high, and people are happy and not likely to attack you. Almost all of Scandinavia is green.
Yellow – Although there is a slight risk of danger, it’s a very low risk. Countries with this color are well-enforced by security forces and if there is a threat of terrorism, it will be contained by the authorities.
Orange – Countries that are colored orange have a moderate risk of danger. You may face racial violence, depending on your race of course. Some cities may be well enforced by the rule of law, while other cities may not. Periodic civil unrest may also be a factor.
Red – Countries that are colored red have a high risk of danger. It is not advised to visit these regions. People in these countries may specifically target you because you’re a foreigner. Violent crime and terrorism is high. There may be areas that are considered “off limits” to foreigners.
Dark Red – These are the most dangerous countries of all. There may be no government of security forces in existence. There is little to no infrastructure or transport capabilities. If you go there, prepare to be attacked or killed.
Yemen is one of the most dangerous countries in the world according to this list. It makes sense, since Yemen hasn’t had a functional government for over ten years. They call it “Syria without the video cameras.”
