When looking for a new place to visit or live abroad, there are many factors to consider. Nightlife, culture, and popularity are all important, but so are more practical matters like safety.
Based on the list, East Asia is home to many of the safest places on Earth. Singapore comes in second place, followed by Osaka in Japan. Seoul, South Korea, also shows up, tied with Copenhagen, Denmark, for the eighth spot. A few additional European cities appear in the top 25, including Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Stockholm, Sweden, as well as some American locations, like Washington, D.C., Chicago, and San Francisco.
Sydney, spectacularly draped around its glorious harbour and beaches, has visual wow factor like few other cities. Scratch the surface and it only gets better.
Osaka is one of the main cities in Japan after Tokyo and is located on the island of Honshu. It is not as traditional or picturesque as other spots in the country like Kyoto, but it is still well worth a visit if you are planning a tour of Japan.
Many locals will tell you that Osaka is one of the most laid back cities in the country and the people here are known for their warm hospitality, which means that you will have the chance to learn all about Japanese culture here.
If you are a big of a foodie then you will also be in luck in Osaka which is said to have one of the best food scenes in all of Japan. To add to this you can explore museums, galleries and amusement parks all over the city, so this is one part of the country that you definitely don’t want to miss.
Washington is an extraordinary city, one with multiple personalities: a working federal city, an international metropolis, a picturesque tourist destination, an unmatched treasury of the country’s history and artifacts, and a cosmopolitan centre that retains a neighbourly small-town ambience. The role Washington plays as the capital of the United States often overshadows its lively local history and its complex political, economic, and social issues. About half the land in Washington is owned by the U.S. government, which pays no taxes on it. Several hundred thousand people in the D.C. metropolitan area work for the federal government.
Historic, youthful, raucous and refined, Copenhagen can mean many things to many people. If you’re young then it’s a literal playground, with the world’s oldest amusement parks and some of the trendiest shopping and nightspots anywhere. For culture there are historic palaces and museums in which Viking and Bronze Age treasures are on display.
Copenhagen’s food-scene is making international waves, as the profusion of Michelin-starred restaurants will tell you, and the city has been one of Europe’s design capitals for decades now It all adds up to a dynamic, progressive and fun destination in Denmark.
