South Korea’s capital Seoul has ranked as the world’s ninth safest city, according to a recent report.

Tokyo took the No. 1 spot in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s ranking for the third time running, while Singapore and Osaka maintained their respective footholds in second and third.

The index ranks 60 cities across five continents, examining digital, health, infrastructure and personal security factors to assess overall urban safety. (Bloomberg)
