World's Safest Destinations - Part 1

Monaco, Western Europe
The only crime that happens in Monaco is at the casino in Monte Carlo. There people get fleeced of their riches everyday. Other than that it just doesn't happen.

Malta, Western Europe
Malta is a small island nation in the Mediterranean, as are a lot of island nations, Malta is a very safe destination. In fact you'd be hard pressed to find a safer place to visit.

Laos, Southeast Asia
Laos is one of the safer countries in Southeast Asia, it is also a communist nation. In what may be surprising to you, communist nations are actually quite into that whole law & order thing, & make for some of the world's safest destinations.

Japan, East Asia
Japan has one of the lowest crime rates in the industrialized world (as long as human on whale crime isn't included in the statistics).

Iceland, Northern Europe
You wouldn't really expect anything less from Iceland. I mean it is an island in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, no one thinks Iceland & unsafe in the same sentence.

Denmark, Northern Europe
Like most all Northern European countries Denmark has a very low rate of violent crime. Not only that, you can be pretty much assured of safety from even being lost while in the country as the people are just so damn friendly.

Cuba, Caribbean
You'd be surprised at how dramatized Cuba's situation is, not only is it a surprisingly safe destination, it also boasts the Western Hemisphere's longest life expectancy rates, as well as literacy rates. So if you live in a country other than the United States & are allowed to visit Cuba, you should go see what the Caribbean looked like 30 years ago.

Croatia, Eastern Europe
Croatia is the jewel of the Adriatic with its thousand mile plus coastline. It is also a very safe country in which you'll almost always feel at ease. And it's hard not to with natural beauty like this.

Bhutan, South Asia
One of the benefits of a secluded Himalayan kingdom is that there's not much crime. Violent crime is as unheard of here as a nightclub.

Bahrain, Middle East
Safety might not be what you think of when the Middle East crosses your mind, but Bahrain isn't your typical Middle Eastern country. Violent crime is rare, the crime rate is low, the people are rich, etc...
