Iceland topped the charts with the lowest risk of a natural disaster as well as crime rates, while India ranked as the fourth most dangerous country to visit.

Which? Travel recently ranked 20 of the most popular destinations around the world for its safety. It took into consideration several factors like crime rates, the likelihood of terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and health concerns. The data was extracted from reports in the World Economic Fund on crime rates, the World Risk Report on natural disasters, the NHS Fit For Travel website on health and the Foreign Office’s assessments of the risks of terrorism.
