    Popular holiday hotspots around the world are said to be getting oversaturated and so, on World Tourism Day, we bring you the next best thing in travel - War Zone Tours - for those with a severe case of alternative wanderlust!

    What is a War Zone Tour? Well it does exactly what it says on the tin, its a holiday break in a region of the world you may be more accustomed to hearing about in news headlines as opposed to in tour guides. But then holiday breaks aren't all meant for walking around holiday resorts and being cocooned away from the reality of local daily life. 

    According to the aptly named War Zone Tours company, recreational travel to active or former war zones can be a very learning experience which allows you to make up your own mind about what you see and hear in the news. It also allows you to soak in alternative sights and sounds, as well as learning a little more about the past, present and history of places you may not be accustomed to hearing about.

    So for all who may be tempted, here is a list of some of the alternative hotspots from conflict zones you may consider as your next getaway.
