On the human rights side I can see what you’re saying, I can see why people should boycott those countries but I can’t see why murder and drug crime would deter people?

Sometimes, its because people are idealistic as all hell and stupid.
Other times, it is because people want to explore what these places have to offer, kind of like to accomplish a YOLO goal.

Some people never think about human rights records even if they are aware of them. If somewhere is cheap to travel to, or there is some particular interesting place in the country, that will not deter them.

The same applies with choices about food and clothes, or the impacts on climate change of their decisions.

Drugs, murder, corrupt and human right go hand in hand in many countries.

True as that may be my point still stands. There are plenty of countries with high murder rates and drug problems that aren’t rife with corruption, the Caribbean providing numerous examples.

Like I said, I can understand people objecting to poor human rights records by boycotting certain countries but I see no real reason to allow crime to deter you.

I think political problems like ISIS etc are the real reason that deters people from visiting countries like Afghanistan

It not nice having arm guards standing outside where you are staying or not being able to walk to the local shop without danger of been kidnap, robbed or attacked. I have been to a country where all three are true.

No, why would it?
Well in certain countries there are quite high rates of murder and drug crime, one would say that murder and drug crime would deter visitors because of its unsavoury nature.

Most of which doesn’t tend to effect tourists. Most of the Caribbean has high murder rates yet it’s among the most desirable holiday locations. Cape Town and Rio popular with tourists yet also have lots of murder. Every year soft middle class teenagers go travelling around Central and South America, the drug and murder hot spot, yet they come back unscathed.

Usually because the holidays are very cheap and the countries play host to much amazing wildlife/heritage sites.
Many visitors are can be very idealistic to the point of idiocy or curious as to the reality of life in regions of the word reported to be very troubled and keen to obtain some personal experience.
There is also the adventurous to the point of recklessness crowd, who find it thrilling to travel alone through violent crime hotspots and constantly put their lives at risk posing for selfies that lead them into highly unsafe situations.
