The Least Visited Countries In The World That You Don’t Have To Be Afraid To Go To.
“In any case, a little danger is a small price to pay for ridding a place of tourists.” Tahir Shah
They are not on the US list of dangerous countries. However, going to remote places may involve risk. Always check the political situation right before you go. Check local blogs, websites and listen to the news. Make sure you have your visas and allow plenty of time to get them if necessary. Get travel insurance.There is much more risk about health in locations where it could take days to get out. Take vaccinations, malaria pills if needed and stay current on outbreaks of disease in the location you are traveling to. Find out what if any telecommunications work in the destination you are going to. Keep you family informed of your whereabouts and who to contact if they haven’t heard from you in a certain period of time. If you still want to go, be flexible and have fun. (not my photos)
Dominica – This beautiful country in the Caribbean has two airports that cannot take anything larger that a commercial prop plane so unless you have a private jet it is a bit of a problem. Volcanoes, flora, fauna, and hot springs make it a beautiful destination.
Liechtenstein is landlocked between Switzerland and Austria. There is not an airport but they do have a heliport for those who need to get in and out on business to use their secretive bank system and take advantage of low corporate taxes. There are beautiful mountains and excellent skiing and hiking in this tiny country.
Tonga has some of the most beautiful beaches. It is one of the last monarchies in the world. If you go during a festival, there will be barbecues, drinking and dancing. They have an airport with a hard name to pronounce.
Solomon Islands – Tropical flowers, beaches, rain forests, lagoons, waterfalls, great diving, surfing and a good fresh fish market are some of the things you can find on the Solomon Islands. The Battle of Guadalcanal was fought here during World War ll. The country consists of over 900 islands. Remember to take malaria pills. It isn’t low risk.
Kiribati is a paradise in the Pacific that no one has heard of. There is a flight every two weeks from the Marshall Islands and Fiji.
Tuvalu is another country in the Pacific that no one knows. A propeller plane (my least favorite way to travel), flys from Fiji twice a week. Beautiful beaches, friendly people and no tourists make it a quiet place to go. It is the world’s least visited country and the first to go when global warming takes over. No credit cards makes it tough. Bring Australian dollars.
Sao Tome and Principe doesn’t have as many problems as most African countries do. There are direct flights from Lisbon which is good because I have not been there yet either. The country has great diving, volcanoes, cool rock formations, snorkeling, jungle trekking and cute fishing villages.
So if you are up for that unique trip, go where few men have gone before you………
