Would You Travel to Afghanistan?

Afghanistan traditionally has a reputation as an unfriendly (to say the least) place for women and it also happens to be a war zone — but that's not stopping the country from attempting to be a tourist destination.

As tourist information centers pop up in Afghanistan's central Bamilyan valley, tour guides and restaurant owners are being trained in the art of customer service.

The country hopes to attract adventurous spirits to the history-rich country. Afghanistan used to be a regular stop for backpackers back in the 1960s. Attractions include: tea houses, cliff caverns, remnants of Buddha statutes, a national park, hiking trails, and preserved ancient cities.

Would you take a chance to see the beauty and experience a completely different culture?

Aside from the war and other social issues currently plaguing the country, Afghanistan seems like it would be a very beautiful place to explore with a vibrant culture and unique natural features. When the country is more secure and it is safe to do so, I'd love to travel there.
