So, you’re after a bit of late summer sun are you? That’s great. The kids have gone back to school, flights will be cheaper and the resorts will be quieter. Sounds like you’ve got this holiday thing sussed. Allow us here at WhatCulture however to go all ‘travel agent’ for a moment as we point you in the right direction for your perfect autumnal get-away.

We’ve made a comprehensive, well-argued list of ten holiday destinations you should most definitely not visit. There’s a strong chance of death at any one of them so we ask you, why even take the risk? You’re welcome.

10. The Central African Country – Far Cry 2

There’s no denying that this land-locked central African nation is mightily picturesque. It boasts huge sweeping savannas, lush green jungles, rolling deserts and plenty of wildlife to photograph. Despite its beauty however, we wouldn’t recommend it for a safari adventure holiday. There’s a strong chance you’ll contract malaria as soon as you rock up, and because medication is scarce – only available from priests it seems – be prepared to collapse at the most inconvenient of times. Don’t bother using public transport either – the buses aren’t what you’d call timely. Your only option if you want to explore is to hire yourself a car, but be sure to request a jeep with a roof-mounted machine gun at the Hertz Rental desk because any journey you make will likely be interrupted by trigger-happy militiamen firing rusty AK47’s at you for no reason. Or they’ll play a game of chicken with you in their machine gun-mounted jeep. But if this does take your fancy, be sure to have a simple understanding of car engines because the RAC aren’t going to be helping you. And if you know basic field first aid and can remove bullets lodged in your body with a knife, then that’s a bonus too.

Oh, and the biggest reason to not visit this place, THERE’S A BLOODY, ENDLESS CIVIL WAR HAPPENING!
