Are the ”Shitholes Countries” Really So Bad?

Are the ”Shitholes Countries” Really So Bad?

US president Donald Trump has recently called a number of countries “shithole countries”, causing an outrage for this totally undiplomatic language. Not to mention that the president obviously has forgotten that some of these countries have played an important role in the modern history. Check out some of the most interesting places you can visit in some of the “shitholes” countries:

1. El Salvador
The country was ravaged by a civil war in 1980s, which was in large parts funded by the US. Today El Salvador has a lot to offer to the tourists – beautiful beaches, the stunning Boulevard de los Heroes in San Salvador, amazing Mayan ruins in Tazumel, Casablanca or La Joya de Ceren.

2. Africa
The president merely referred to African countries, but you can’t simply include all the African countries. Here is a suggestion for some interesting and beautiful places to visit:
- Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest mountain and one of the most amazing views in the world. It contains 3 volcanic cones and is a very popular destination for climbers and ordinary tourists from all over the world
- Victoria Falls – situated on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, these mighty and magnificent waterfalls are considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world.

- Botswana – besides experiencing the amazing Okawango Delta and the lovely Chobe National Park, Botswana is considered a cheap destination and one of the safest countries to visit.
