Adventure Travel Country Alerts
Troops have been deployed on the streets of Chile after the worst riots in decades resulted in buildings, buses and metro stations burned in Santiago, with clashes and demonstrations elsewhere in the country. Citizens are upset over social and economic conditions. The spark was another hike in metro ticket prices. President Pinera has declared a state of emergency in the popular adventure travel destination.
Venezuela continues to self-destruct under a socialist dictatorship, with reports that now the country’s water system is collapsing. Dangerous levels of bacteria have been found in the nation’s water supply, reports the New York Times. This is such a shame to see, as the country boasts great natural assets including Angel Falls and the Tepui “table-top” mountains. Adventure tourism could certainly be a way of getting the country back on track once stability is restored.
Elsewhere, anti-government protests continue in Hong Kong, and violent protests have escalated in Barcelona between police and Catalan separatists. The main cross-border highway between Catalonia and France has been disrupted by activists.
Also, if you’ve been to China, you know how the country loves the NBA, and the country is still smarting over comments made by a Houston Rockets exec about Hong Kong. Know that China is fiercely nationalistic and it’s probably best to stay away from any negative comments about Taiwan, Hong Kong or the Uyghurs of Western China while traveling in the country (or on Twitter as in the case of the Rockets exec).
