France's Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued travel warnings for parts of these nine U.S. cities-and for the entire state of Florida after dark-last week, "The International Business Times" reported.

Here are the security advisories in their entirety, along with photos of famous landmarks in the supposedly dangerous neighborhoods. (For the full effect, set the slideshow to "God Bless America" at full volume and, while watching it, munch on some Freedom Fries.) As the article notes, the U.S. State Department has no current travel warnings regarding any part of France.

Disclaimer: Conveniently for the French, but not so much for Americans who got a gentleman's C- in their high school study of the language, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs published its list in French. Any issues with accuracy of the translations should be taken up with Google Translate.

Actually there are same problems in every popular tourist area in the world. e just can't blame to USA only. Only difference is that so areas are facing it in large scale. I have visited some of the tourist spots in France and I found that France is racist. It should not be happen at least in the world famous tourist City - Paris.
I am from China and a travel loving person so I would love to visit Paris again. It was my first trip. I got some tourist information from the link below.

I hope up to my next Paris trip, there should be some improvement in behavior of Paris citizens towards Asian travelers.

Having lived in four of these cities, and visited all of them multiple times, I\'d say they\'re spot on-maybe too mild in their cautions.

It is funny the perception that other countries have about a particular city or area of the United States. The truth is that there are good and bad things about every city, even the cities in France.
