Hong Kong
Economist Intelligence Unit based the ranking on digital, health, infrastructure and personal safety.
Mayor Joseph Estrada, meanwhile, defended his city, saying that Manila has the lowest crime rate around the metro.
Meanwhile, it was a different story for the survey conducted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation which was released on October 10.
Its result showed that Metro Manila is one of the safer megacities for women around the world.
The survey actually referred to "Manila," though as a megacity is defined as having a population of 10 million or more, it is clear it means Metro Manila.
Cities are scored on a scale of 1 to 19 for each area, with 1 being the worst score and 19 being the best.
Manila got 13 in sexual violence, 10 in access to healthcare, 13 in cultural practices and 17 in economic opportunities. — GMA News
