While the majority of holidays are trouble-free, British tourists will need to take precautions whenever they travel. However, there are a few destinations where risks are lower.
Before booking a holiday, it’s important to check the UK Government’s travel advice which will explain any risks. Advice can change quickly so it’s important to check again before travelling.
Britons should also make sure they have travel insurance when they book a holiday and check the extent of coverage.
But where is the safest holiday destination for British tourists?
Tokyo, Japan’s vibrant capital city, topped the destination list. The Japanese city is considered to be very safe and has an incredible range of attractions.
One of Tokyo’s top attractions is Ueno Park, which is one of the best places to see the city’s famous cherry blossoms.
A tourist wrote on Tripadvisor: “Went during cherry blossom season and this place was absolutely beautiful! Just wish I got to see more pink cherry blossoms!”
‘Selva’ said: “I was lucky to visit Ueno Park in the sakura season. There are big, beautiful sakura trees at the entrance of the park.”
The British Government’s advice for Japan states: “Crime levels are low across Japan, but you should maintain the same level of vigilance as you would at home and take sensible precautions.”
While Asia took many of the top spots on the safety list, Prague, the capital city of Czechia, was the safest destination in Europe.
Budapest, Vienna, Rome and Bucharest also made the list and could make a cheaper break than Tokyo for Britons.
