The level of safety is becoming a top priority for tourists – and especially for them, experts from the British newspaper Express presented the safest tourist destinations in 2023. The study was compiled by Get Licensed, analyzing for this the level of crime, citizens' trust in the police and other criteria, such as mandatory “minority rights.”
Interestingly, no traditional sea and beach resorts made it into the top ten. For safety, European tourists will travel from the nearest Mediterranean to anywhere from Iceland to Japan. Although, of course, there are EU countries on the list.
In general, the ranking of the safest travel destinations in 2023 is as follows:
- Reykjavik, Iceland
- Bern, Switzerland
- Bergen, Norway
- Kyoto, Japan
- Taipei, Taiwan
- Singapore, Singapore
- Copenhagen, Denmark
- Salzburg, Austria
- Tokyo, Japan
- Doha, Qatar/Ljubljana, Slovenia
“Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, was voted the safest holiday destination in 2023 with low crime and homicide rates. Although petty theft and antisocial behavior can occur, especially in the bars where people gather late at night in downtown Reykjavik. The city also has a good track record with respect to minority rights, and its residents have a high level of trust in the police,” the newspaper writes. “Be aware of your surroundings, and if you notice unusual activity, you must immediately leave the area and follow all instructions given by the police and local authorities,” the publication writes.
