If you get that sinking feeling when in Bangkok, you’re right. Similar to Venice, Bangkok is going under as sea levels continue to rise. The city officials are draining underground caverns for drinking water and, as they do so, the city’s foundation is getting weaker.
San Francisco, California
San Francisco is easily one of the most fun and exciting cities in the world. Unfortunately, California is resting on a major fault line, which means that San Francisco is in constant danger of getting hit by a major earthquake.
Considered by most people the most romantic city in the world, Venice is well-known for its road-like waterways that swirl through the city. This is its curse too. The city is literally sinking, many of the buildings being constantly flooded.
Mexico City, Mexico

Naples sits next to Mount Vesuvius, the same volcano responsible for the disappearance of Pompeii in 79 A. D. The volcano is still active, which means that Naples is in constant threat of it unleashing its fury upon the city.
