World's safest country to visit in 2018 revealed by Gallup survey
Sun, sea and sand are all great things to consider when you plan to travel, but so is staying out of trouble.
That's why a newly published survey that rates destinations for their perceived safety might be of interest.
The 2018 Global Law and Order report by US researchers Gallup ranks locations across the world based entirely on residents' own sense of security.
It asked citizens of 142 countries about their confidence in local policing, feelings of safety while walking alone and personal experiences of crime. So which is seen as safest?
Perhaps it's no surprise that Singapore leads the way, with several Nordic nations also scoring highly.
Some lesser known destinations also feature prominently: Fifth place goes to Uzbekistan.
"We wanted to know whether or not people had fear in their society, and the way that we decided we would gauge that would be through asking people," Jon Clifton, global managing partner at Gallup, tells CNN Travel.
