    What a list! I am amazed at how many of these spots I was unaware of. In the case of Somalia or other unstable lands, just a bit of greater stability and safety would spike those numbers. Let’s hope that folks get together, iron out some differences and inspire tourists to see these gems. Super post 🙂

      Thank you, Ryan. I’m glad you liked it 🙂 I agree, it’s really bad for some unfortunate countries like Somalia and the Central African Republic, whose tourist potential is untapped and people can’t see their beauty just because of political issues that cause the chaos surrounding them.

    Great list! An additional reason to visit Guinea-Bissau is its interesting wildlife too. I’ve encountered many species up close in the east of the country (including chimpanzee) and the island of Orango in the Bijagos houses a very interesting population of hippos living in the ocean.

      yeah Guinea Bissau is up there and almost made the top 15 list! 😀 Nevertheless, it sounds like an amazing place and I would love to visit some day 😀

    Hi, I’m amazed that I’ve actually been to a couple of places on your list and more amazed that they are on there as they are in Europe (if any European country was on the list I would have expected Belarus because of previous visa requirements).
    Liechtenstein was beautiful and only a bus ride from Zurich in Switzerland to the capital Vaduz. Like you said not masses to see but the locals are very friendly and the scenery is superb.
    Moldova is more of a surprise to me. I found Moldova to be a fantastic place to visit and as you say very cheap. My recommendations for anyone thinking of going (and you should) are as follows:
    Stay – Weekend boutique Hotel, not the cheapest compared to others but if you fancy the splurge it’s a really quirky, friendly hotel with an excellent on site sushi restaurant
    Do – There are two days trips you should do whilst you are there, we did them as private trips with local guides which costs more but was a great experience. Having a Moldovan guide for one and a Russian guide for the other really helped to give us the different perspectives of the reigon.
    Trip 1 – Don’t miss out on visiting the breakaway region of Transdinester, it’s not as foreboding as you would think but it does feel like time has stopped still with tanks and Lenin statues just check with your guide before taking photos
    Trip 2 – The Cricovia wine tour is a must. You get driven round the James Bond Villain style tunnels on an electric car, see the various private collections that they hold but the tasting is the highlight – we effectively had five bottles between the three of us. Plus if you want to buy any even the good wine is very cheap prices.

      Thank you for your comment, Davy. Indeed, in Moldova’s case, it’s the country that people often forget that it’s part of Europe and even that it used to be a part of the Soviet Union. It’s the poorest country in the old continent by far and it often remains off the tourist trail for people visiting Europe but their wine is absolutely amazing and underrated. Liechtenstein, on the other hand, is too small to even notice in the map 😀 but I definitely should write more about it, I have some posts coming in the queue.
