There is no reason to go on the east side of Afganistnului a trip to historic treasures hidden here or giant statues of Buddha by the Taliban attacked with dynamite in 2003. And not just the East is dangerous.
Minaret of Jam, ranked two in the UNESCO list of World Patrimonilui a remarkable example of Islamic architecture is now in a dramatic valley, in the center of the country attacked by bandits. Kabul, once a quiet place is now full of kidnappings, assassinations and attacks. To these add earthquakes, TB and other dangerous epidemics. If you're willing to try exotic carpets and clothing safer destinations, like Egypt or Tunisia.
