A tourism expert has named the most remote and challenging destinations for the British, where not everyone dares to go
Despite the fact that the British passport opens up many opportunities for its holders to travel to different parts of the world, some countries are still difficult to access for the British. Among them are both destinations that are not popular and paradise islands that are challenging to reach even with the utmost desire.
Express.co.uk spoke with Eva Ruuska, Riskline's operations manager, to determine which destinations are still off-limits for most British tourists.
The expert began her story with attractive resorts that are rarely visited by travelers.
"Micronesian islands such as Kiribati and Nauru are tropical island paradises, but their remoteness, limited flight schedules, and strict visa regulations make them some of the most difficult to visit," Eva Ruuska began.
Both oceanic countries are home to about 150,000 people, and these places are famous for their beauty. However, the remoteness of the resorts makes it challenging for tourists to reach them easily. Additionally, the current situation with Covid complicates travel to these areas.
However, there are countries that the British may not want to visit. The fact that they are hard to reach may disappoint few people.
"Aside from tourist destinations, Eritrea is extremely difficult for tourists to access as visas are very rarely issued. All trips have to be pre-approved by the government, and visitors are allowed to visit only a few areas," the expert said.
The UK Foreign Office advises against all but essential travel to North Korea. Not only is it difficult and expensive to get there, but it is also quite dangerous to stay in the DPRK due to the limited assistance of the consulate and the strictness of the laws.
