Pyongyang, NK is pretty dangerous for a foreigner without a guide, ticket or passport to show.
I would run through the South Korean border as soon as possible.

Many people 'disappear' in Medellin, I think probably more than Juarez and far more than Caracas. The murder rate isn't very accurate - in fact it's probably more dangerous than Caracas since 2008.

When were you last there, sometime in the 1990's? Serious question.

Hi Carioca_Dude. Nice to see someone agree with me about Maceio. Vitoria's another one that never gets mentioned (I blame the world's media, they tend to stick to the same cities year after year).

Washington DC still has a high crime rate. Nothing like in 1990 when it had the worst mayor in American history, but still high compared to the national average.

The most dangerous cities in America: Detroit, New Orleans, Camden NJ

The most dangerous in the World: Angeles City, Tijuana, Baghdad, Juarez, and Johannesburg.

I am getting a feeling that some of the most dangerous cities in the world are never mentioned. Of course Johannesburg, Tijuana, Juarez, Caracas get mentioned, but there are some other places that we may not know of that are even more violent in terms of crime rates and just are not mentioned.
