Choosing a holiday destination used to be easy. One could simply spin a globe and stick a pin to find the perfect holiday hotspot, but things are very different today. Favourites such as Egypt, Turkey, France and Greece have all been listed as ‘unsafe’ or ‘high risk’ holiday destinations by the media, which has led to many travellers cancelling their trips to such countries…
But with terrorism attacks, earthquakes, mudslides, and tsunamis to consider, where is safe and where should we go if we want a stress-free holiday?
Well, the Global Peace Index for 2017 has been released by the Vision of Humanity, and if you are looking to spend your holidays in a peaceful country, here’s the top 25 countries in the world where you should be heading this summer/winter:
- New Zealand
- Czech Republic
- The Netherlands
The list also highlights the world’s least peaceful countries, and so if you are currently planning a round-the-world trip or multi-destination adventure, pop on over to visionofhumanity.org and take a look at the full list.
Wherever you decide to travel this year, stay happy, healthy and peaceful!
