Staying safe on your travels

Central Station | 19 Nov 2019

If you are looking for a chance to get away from Hong Kong to find some peace and security, the interactive Travel Risk Map has got you covered.

Launched by international medical and security specialists International SOS, the map informs travelers about the safest places to go.

Factoring in road safety, security and medical conditions, the website lists Norway, Finland and Iceland as the safest destinations in 2020.

Meanwhile, Libya and Somalia are among the most dangerous.

South Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand are among countries with low risk of disease

North Korea, on the other hand, carries a high risk of catching something nasty.

But when it comes to road safety, you need to keep your wits about you in Thailand and Vietnam.

International SOS also conducted a survey of business travelers, reporting that 47 percent anticipated an increase in travel risks next year.

Hong Kong does not make the list, but it will be interesting to see if it appears next year.
