Tourism to Chernobyl?

Been to Timbuktu? The Hindu Kush Valley? Kayaked down waterfalls? If you're looking for a place to visit that will shock others, try taking a tour to Chernobyl. Yup, visitors can now tour inside the 50 km exclusion zone around the site of the world's largest civilian nuclear accident. You can visit the power plant and ghost-town villages such as Pripyat eerily left as it was when it was abandoned in 1986.

As for me, I think I'll pass...

Yes, and I thought the 'visit the bombed-out buildings of Belgrade' was bizarre....I don't think I'd like to go to Chernobyl.
