Places in the World prefer not to go Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Despite being home to the world’s biggest carnival Rio de Janeiro is also one of the most dangerous places on Earth. As soon as travellers get off the plane they are handed leaflets of do’s and dont’s. Not wearing jewellery and not carrying your wallet (take as little money out with you as you can) are some of the things visitors are told. In the last two years crime rates have risen, especially violent crimes. A local drug cartel known as the Pirahnas are largely responsible for the increased violence and are notorious for abductions too. Last year there were 8,000 murders in the city, which is close to 20 a day!
