What countries made the list?
The travel and tourism industry is at the forefront of American industries. USTravel.org states that the overall economic output is approximately 2.1 trillion! With both international and domestic traveling being so common, it is vital that tourists are aware of which countries they need to either avoid, or take caution in while visiting. Many countries are currently facing political upset, or a high rate of violence, and it isn’t unusual for tourists to become prime targets. The Department of State updates travel warnings on a frequent basis in order to alert tourists of the dangers at hand, so that they are able to take necessary precaution.
