According to CNN, the tourist tastes of people have changed in recent years. Anyone wants to travel to a safe and civilized city besides discovering interesting things in the city. Meanwhile, terrorism cases and climate change are increasing, causing many people to be psychologically afraid.

Therefore, analysts believe that it is time to consider the resilience of that city after a natural disaster, including emergency services available, how transportation in a disaster, prevention plan, and network security. Therefore, Tokyo tops the list for digital security, while Singapore is rated higher for infrastructure security and personal security.

Compared to the previous year, Hong Kong was downgraded when only modestly ranked 20th, down 11 places compared to 2017, due to a decline in the number of visitors.

Besides, although the criteria for safe cities do not mention economic-financial factors, analysts admit that cities in developing countries rarely appear on this list.

At the bottom of the list is Lagos (Nigeria) with a score of 38.1. The last five cities include Venezuela (Venezuela), Yangon (Myanmar), Karachi (Pakistan) and Dhaka (Bangladesh).
