Traveling is an amazing way to explore yourself and life. Even the most poor country can change ones life. However there are streets in this world where you don’t want to find yourself. Even in a civilised country there are places that follow they own rules. Most of he time they don’t welcome any outsiders and don’t guarantee any security. No matter if you prefer safety or adventure there streets are last to visit whatever your travel destination is. Let’s have a look on five worst streets in the world:
Cité Soleil, Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Cite Soleil or so-called The city of Sun is certainly one of the most dangerous place to be. The district itself is located on the edge of Haiti’s capital. The 2010 earthquake devastated the area quite a lot and most of the buildings today are slums and huts. There're no central canalisation here so the area has long been a hotbed of dangerous diseases and viruses. The average lifespan in Port-au-Prince is no longer than 50 years. Another problem is an enormous level of crime. The issue is also a consequence of the earthquake that gave a possibility for many criminals to break out of a jail. Even the police gave up on preventing violence in Cite Soleil.
Calle Tiburcio Reyes, La Perla, San Juan, Puerto Rico
The historical background of this place is a city of butchers. In a way, a tradition of killing and selling always had a place to be here. Today the slum is occupied by a latin mafia that uses La Perla as a terminal station for their drug business. Here all the product is stored before being sent to USA. Despite the poorness of it’s citizens, La Perla has one of the most beautiful beaches and stunning nature. The government of the country gets involved in preventing the drug business so general the environment of the district has a tendency to improve.
Bulevar del Sur, Chamelecón, San Pedro Sula, Honduras
The district of Chamelecón is being totally controlled by local criminal gags. They set their own rules, including taxes and the curfew. In most of the cases, disobeying the rule leads to the death of breaker. Besides all that blackmailing, tortures and threats of violence are essentials of life in Chamelecón.
The level of crime wasn’t that high few years ago. Criminality had meaningly grown after the deport of MS-13 gang members from USA to Honduras.
W Chicago / Livernois Ave, Detriot, USA
One upon a time Detroit used to be a developing centre of car industry, however today the state is going through the hard times. Few district of Detroit were called the worst neirborhoods in USA. Since 2000 around 25% of Detroit Population left the city. That of course lead to the growthn of clime and murders in the city. W Chicago/ Livernois Ave is one of the worst places in the city. The chance of becoming a vicim here is 1 in 7.
Nyanga, Cape Town, South Africa
Nyaga in Cape Town was formed as a consequence of migrant labour system. Langa was coming too small and many of migrants were literally forced to live here. Today this part of the city is know as a “murder capital” of South Africa. High level of unemployment ( around 52%) and HIV/ AIDS issues create the great environment for crime to develop. It is believed that there are around 120 gangs ruling the city. An average murder rate is 45.15 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants.
