Tokyo with Mount Fuji in the background

In 2017 there are more than four billion people living in cities around the world, this is an increase of 150 million in the last two years alone. And because of this growth, experts at The Economist have been compiling their index of the safest cities in the world.

The latest findings have put Tokyo at top spot, having also been named number one back in 2015 during the first index. Factors include how secure cities are from hacking, healthcare, personal safety, crime and more.

Sixty cities are featured on the Safest Cities Index which ranks them across 49 indicators. The Japanese capital ranked very highly on digital security, as well as seeing a rise in the health security category since the last report was published.

Cities from Europe and Asia dominate the top-spots:

  1. Tokyo – 89.80
  2. Singapore – 89.64
  3. Osaka – 88.87
  4. Toronto – 87.36
  5. Melbourne – 87.30
  6. Amsterdam – 87.26
  7. Sydney – 86.74
  8. Stockholm – 86.72
  9. Hong Kong – 86.22
  10. Zurich – 85.20
  11. Frankfurt – 84.86
  12. Madrid – 83.88
  13. Barcelona – 83.71
  14. Seoul – 83.61
  15. San Francisco – 83.55
  16. Wellington – 83.18
  17. Brussels – 83.01
  18. Los Angeles – 82.26
  19. Chicago – 82.21
  20. London – 82.10

Such small margins separate the top three, which remain unchanged from 2015. The inclusion of Wellington in sixteenth is notable, as it is the only ‘new’ city that features in the top 20, meaning it was not ranked previously.

Safety is of course a major factor when you are considering a holiday and seeing how well Asian and Australian cities have done you may wish to book a world cruise to explore them yourself.
