Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Top 10 Dangerous Cities In The World

Making a top of the most dangerous cities in the world is not an easy task, the lists change year after year. Some time ago, Chicago was, and still is considered the world’s crime capital. But let’s face it, just because Chicago has an interesting crime history and something that looks like a proneness to violence, there are other cities in this world that are basically imbued in constant acts of crime. There are cities out there which can scare even the most spectacular team of super heroes and if you think the Expendables can take a quiet walk in the park in some of these towns, think again! Today we will see (from the distance, as nobody dares to travel in those virtually war zones) the top ten most dangerous cities in the world.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Top 10 Dangerous Cities In The World
1. San Pedro Sula – Honduras
It takes first place as the crime rate was established at 169 deaths at 100.000 inhabitants. Despite the touristic attractions, Honduras is a dangerous country and San Pedro Sula is not something we’d visit without the Terminator (Arnie’s version to be exact) to tag along.

2. Ciudad Huarez – Mexico
It is not a myth in Hollywood movies that Mexico is that type of country you should visit only if you have a weapons’ permit and some shooting skills. Full of cultural attractions, with a history and surrounding legends that appeal to everybody, Mexico loses a lot of attention and potential touristic development due to the violence it is characterized by. Ciudad Huarez isn’t the first time when makes the top ten list of the most dangerous cities in the world, as drug traffic and gang wars are current news.

3. Maceio, Brazil
Many years, Rio de Janeiro bared the stigmata of danger, crime and unthinkable violence, together with Buenos Aires even. Did you happen to see the famous and most disturbing movie Citade de Deus? Did you hear about the Brazilian favelas? Well, Maceio seems to be the peak of them all, as it hit the list with proven facts that people actually contract paid killers to solve some of their business.

4. Acapulco, Mexico
Don’t get us wrong, the beaches in Acapulco still make the top touristic destinations in the world. The paradox is that despite the beauty, the fame and the world-renown publicity Acapulco benefits of, it is still one of the most dangerous cities in the world, statistics showing an incredible crime rate of 128 victims in 100.000 inhabitants.

5. Sharm el Sheikh
You can find there not only ones of the most spectacular landscapes in the world, tourist luxury services that redefine the concept of luxury, vacation offers that attract millions of people, but also, and unfortunately this is the truth, armed attacks, broad daylight street robberies, assault and rape. It is indeed a shame, as this corner of Heaven is still considered one of the best outcomes of nature and man teamwork.

6. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Malaysia also takes pride in its spectacular landscapes, a culture that begs to be discovered and explored and… a history of violence that made way too many victims. Presently, the state’s capital is said to be one of the most dangerous cities in the world, as the crime rate increased with 70% in the last three years. It wasn’t a peace on Earth display before either, but now things seem to keep getting worse.

7. Johannesburg, South Africa
This South African city almost competes with New York in infrastructure, economy expansion, touristic attractions and way of life. Still, Trip Advisor listed this beautiful city among the most dangerous in the world as people still can witness street shootings and physical assaults in broad day light.
dangerous cities
8. Caracas, Venezuela
Back in South America, among the world’s records nominees in crime and violence. Caracas is the playground of numerous drug cartels and gangs and street fights, wars and assaults are a constant preoccupation for the inhabitants and authorities, who explicitly warn people not to hang for long in some specific neighborhoods.
dangerous cities
9. Marrakech, Morocco
Morocco is a beautiful country and a lot of people go there to get a taste of the Orient, learn about ancient traditions, see the desert with their own eyes and feel the magic atmosphere. Marrakech is, however, a very dangerous city and even on the governmental official web site the authorities warn future tourists to consider carefully their visit, as they might find themselves in threatening situations.
dangerous cities
10. New Orleans, U.S.A
It is a pity to find this incredible beautiful city among the top 40 most dangerous cities of 2012, but unfortunately, the facts and numbers show New Orleans as being one violent city and the only one in the U.S. that made it to the list.

I came across this post a little late but I am disappointed to see no other exposing this publisher for his alleged crime in printing such information meant intentionally to mislead the public. I am not her to defend kuala lumpur per se but I am here to defend against the abuse of stats to exploit free media communications. What blasphemy, conniving, invasive, misconstrued and naivety that the publisher of this top 10 dangerous city bellowed upon to make such claims? As I see it, the publication of it is in itself a crime as it was done deliberately to mislead the public. How can he simply use 1 number of 70% to create a top10 record. On an extreme, an increase of 2 to 4 crime denote 100%n increase. Should I then assume that 70% meant there was only an increase of 1 crime that put a city instantly into top10 ranking.... which contradicts his starting statement that it isnt so easy to make the world top 10. Who conveniently made it easy here? Have you even looked at both micro and macro numbers published by 3rd party organizations? But I am not here to teach statistics. However, if you should not know how to use them properly and in accurate relevance, you should not be touching it in the first place. And in addition, have you accidentally or conveniently again omitted or chose to forget comparing KL with its surrounding neighbors before making such a "not so easy to make top 10 ranking" stance. Or at the least compare it with the world's top 50 countries with similar PPPs. By doing what you have done, you should be reprimanded and suspended for life from ever publishing anything unless in a controlled media which is the only place people like you should be allowed to write. You bring shame to writers and the decades of fighting to get free media communication. Your crime is the intentional disruption in the morals of national, social, global and relational structures. It is misconstrued publications like these that brings misunderstanding and conflicts between people. There should be a panel that auto filters without notice these publications that shames writers in general.
