These are the world's safest cities in 2019

We spend so much time, money, and energy planning a vacation, so it should be a given that where we go should also give us a sense of security as well.

If you're looking for a great destination where you can also get peace of mind when it comes to your own personal safety as well, it might be a good idea to book a trip to Tokyo, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit's 2019 Safe Cities Index (SCI).

The annual report gathers information and ranks the world's top cities in regards to each of their digital security, health security, infrastructure and personal safety standards, CNN reported.

According to the report, Tokyo, Japan, ranked number one overall, with a score of 92 out of a possible 100. The city also topped the list in the previous two reports in 2017 and 2015, according to CNN. It's no wonder why Japan is such a sought-after destination.

Tokyo also topped the digital security category, so tourists can rest assured their online identities and other personal information are secure from cyber thieves.
