"Toughest Travel" from Forbes

I got a little bit of advice in my email this morning pointing me to the Forbes.com Travel Videos. In particular they have a video about "toughest travel" locations. Not so much that it's a "tough" place to be, but that it's very difficult to get there, mostly for visa and regulatory reasons.

On the list of tough places was Myanmar which is just now letting in tourists and Cuba where the US government has restricted travel ever since the rise of Fidel. According to the video, in 2005 there was US$96.3Million that US families transferred to the Cuban government as part of travel to the island. They also stated that it's now possible to get travel visas through the US government which will allow some visitors to Cuba. That's news to me - but I might just have to take advantage of it!

And here's the video
