April 28. A new study shows American travelers view many Asian nations as safer travel destinations now than they did four years ago.
South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, China and Vietnam rose in the annual safety rankings published by travel insurance provider Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection.
The survey in the 2022 “State of Travel Insurance Report” also showed that some of America’s favorite travel destinations in Europe and the Caribbean — namely Italy, Bahamas, Spain, Jamaica and the United Kingdom — lost ground in terms of perceived travel safety.
Australia also took a hit. From 2018 to 2022, the country fell from No. 1 to No. 10 in the survey.
