    If I had money, North Korea. Presuming i'd be a lowly peasant I'd choose Zimbabwe.

    Uganda has violent uprisings and Ebola. I'd go with Zimbabwe anyday


    ...unless you prefer Ebola

    There are a few tours you can go on to NK (obviously heavily restricted and you certainly won't see any labour camps or famine and I believe its quite difficult to get on them), though I did wonder how/why he would have gone to NK or Afghanistan, not saying he's lying, its just they're hardly tourist destinations

    Kampala and Entebbe are both thriving cities. People are generally pleased to see tourists. The LRA/Kony lot have been irrelevent for a long time.

    N. Korea is generally safe for foreigners.

    Somalia WAS an utter anarchy, or as close as any state has come to (in my opinion).

    Zimbabwe: You have Mugabe and you never know when he will flip. Inflation is crazy.

    Afghanistan: It is obvious, is it not?

    You answered that exactly on my behalf, haha thanks. Yes you can go on tours. Contrary to popular belief, its not THAT hard to get on. Unless you are a known journalist (i.e. they can find you easily on net). And I did not get to see any camps or anything...

    Hahaha yeah it could be.

    If we are going to go on just pure violence rather than pseudostats then you should replace Zimbabwe perhaps by New York? I am not sure what OP is saying with his choice of states...

    The word 'anti-climax' pretty much sums it up. It was interesting but as you said in your post you dont get to see the real DPRK, and although I knew that before going, I still hoped that I would see something. You can see its a poor state but you dont get the sense that its a failed state.

    Oh :/ damn it but I'm glad not to hear stuff like "it was horrid, dead in the streets, widespread homelessness deasiese riddled people."
