Taipei, TAIWAN (Merxwire) - The results of the "safest city" survey conducted by the well-known British insurance company William Russell for global tourists have been released. The city that won the first prize is Taipei, and the second place is "Tokyo", which is also located in Asia. The third and fourth places are both European cities, respectively Prague, the capital of Czech, and Copenhagen, the capital of Danish. Singapore, located in Southeast Asia, ranks fifth.

Since the second half of last year, the borders of various countries have been gradually unsealed, and overseas tourism has begun to grow vigorously, whether it is business travel or sightseeing. So the destination of traveling has become one of the hottest topics of discussion, and safety is an important concern for many travelers. Because a safe city allows people to enjoy travel with an easy mind and fewer worries.

William Russell is a transnational insurance company with the insurance business and services customers all over the world, so he often conducts transnational surveys on different issues and publishes various global statistical reports. Let customers and the public have clear directions when choosing insurance products that suit them. Therefore, this time, global travelers are the target of the survey, and the survey indicators are based on their actual perception of the local crime rate in different cities around the world.

The results of the survey reveal that "Taipei" is the safest city in the minds of tourists, while "Buenos Aires",  the capital of Argentine is the least safe city. The report also found that tourists generally believe that Asia and Europe are safer and have a lower crime rate, so they are more willing to travel to these cities for business or family travel.
