More than half of the world's population lives in urban areas, and 60 of the world's largest cities are also the most likely to be visited by tourists.
Paris, for example, has 2.1 million residents, yet welcomed more than 23 visitors in 2017. Cairo saw nearly the same number of people who live in the city (9.5 million) come to visit (9 million).
Every year, The Economist Intelligence Unit reviews 57 indicators across personal, infrastructure, health and digital security to create an annual "Safe Cities Index." The index reveals the safest cities in the world not only to live in, but to visit.
On the most recent list for 2019, Paris landed in the top 25, while Cairo missed the mark, landing at No. 55. Which other cities made it to the top ranks? Read on to find out — because when deciding where to go, safety should always be a priority.
