Dark and Poverty Tourism Continued...

Just a brief note building on my previous post on dark and poverty tourism, Conde Nast Traveler has an article out in their March issue on this very topic titled "Controversial Tourist Attractions," where they explore the pros and cons of visiting these 'questionable' locations. In addition to the places I cited, they also bring up Chernobyl in the Ukraine, Devil's Island in French Guiana (as the French Guantanamo opened under Emperor Napoleon III), the Cu Chi Tunnels in Vietnam where civilians and soldiers tried to hide to avoid U.S. bombing during the Vietnam war.
