Thailand

In October 2006, Thailand expanded its list of tourist attractions with one of the world’s most laid-back military coups. Tourists and local residents alike posed for photos alongside the tanks and cheerful soldiers.

Uganda

Tourism of the more adventurous kind is increasingly common in Uganda – tracking mountain gorillas, or rafting on the Nile, but to many outsiders Uganda’s claim to fame is still little more than Idi Amin, the jovial but brutal dictator.

Benin

If people in the rich world associate Benin with anything at all, it is likely to be child trafficking, slavery or voodoo – not exactly the ideal calling cards for a nation. Latterly, however, Benin is developing an entirely new reputation.
