Depending on where you travel, you might have to consider any number of security concerns as a traveler. Even something as minor as having your pocket picked could ruin an entire vacation, and some attractive destinations carry with them much more serious risks.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of cities where you can focus on the culture, history, fun, and of course, food. Using data from Numbeo, we ranked them based on how they scored from a scale of 1 to 100, 100 being the safest. We should note that Numbeo's database is fluid, with the data depending on the changing stats and reports on a given day, and that this ranking is based on data pulled on October 30, 2018. The numbers may have changed slightly since, and of course, there is also the chance that the situation in a given city has suddenly changed.
