In a TikTok, traveler Conner McBee highlights that Tijuana in Mexico is widely considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world

As a warning to others, a raft of solo travelers have spoken out about the most dangerous cities they have visited, where muggings, shootings and prostitution are commonplace and going out after dark isn’t advised.

In a TikTok, traveler Conner McBee highlights that Tijuana in Mexico is widely considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world and in 2023, it was reported that 105 homicides were committed for every 100,000 residents.

He interviews a woman working at a local pharmacy, and she warns him that criminals can ‘beat you up’ and ‘take your things.’ She continues: ‘[They will] take everything from you until you’re barefoot.’ 

Another local Conner interviews in the street paints a similar picture of the place. He says: ‘They’ll take your s***, yeah. They’ll take it and then take everything you’ve got.’

As he walks through the city himself, Conner tells viewers: ‘There’s all these hookers walking towards me, like keeping eyes on me. Yeah, I definitely do not feel safe.’

In another TikTok, Courtney Leopard, who has been to more than 59 countries, reveals the cities she felt most unsafe in. 

She highlights to viewers that ‘this is just a personal experience as a solo traveler’ and in no particular order.

First up, she elects Havana in Cuba as she said she ‘didn’t particularly feel that comfortable walking around alone’ and she witnessed a mugging in the street. 

Recalling the incident, she said: ‘I was walking with this older American woman walking behind me and literally this guy tried to mug her and grab her bag when she was about 20ft behind me. So that really kind of put me off.’

Cebu City in the Philippines is another city where Courtney said she felt unsafe. 

The traveler notes that she didn’t stay in Manilla, so she ‘doesn’t have anything to compare it to,’ but while she was in Cebu she said she was walking to the ferry port just as it was getting dark and she was getting catcalled.

‘It was just… not very comfortable for me,’ she explains.

She tells viewers: ‘I feel like I can’t give a fair representation because I didn’t spend that much time there but I’m just going off based off what happened to me and that was that I got followed by a man from the bus stop to my hostel.

‘It made me so genuinely uncomfortable that I had to go into a shop and like explain to the woman that this guy was following me and she basically said that she knew him and that he dealt with substance abuse so I should avoid him.

‘It just wasn’t a great introduction to Thessaloniki.’
