Dark tourism is now a global phenomenon where people choose to vacation in places associated with death and destruction. New Zealand journalist and actor, David Farrier in the Netflix series 'Dark Tourist' which premiered in 2018 discovers haunted locations across the world, known for their spooky and eerie factors.
We have listed all haunted places from the eight-episode series that are perfect for dark tourism. So keep reading, grab a flight ticket and get going to these exciting places.
David Farrier’s first stop is in Latin America, Mexico City where he comes face to face with the possessed. The episode itself rightly begins with the disclaimer that 80% of this trip, is related to death. He later tours the La Catedral prison, which houses Pablo Escobar’s former hitman. And if that wasn’t thrilling enough already, Farrier witnesses an exorcism and later mocks illegally crossing into the US border.
