Incredibly safe country with very low safety risk, but be cautious of red light districts like Orchard Towers and Geylang, you can get scammed or worse.

My god, why are people bombing cities' safety index? Singapore is literally one of the safest countries in the world.

A few time after drinking i forget to close my door , sleep soundly and safely till sun rise . Ever did leave my laptop on the table to go to toilet and came back 10mins later and is still there ! This ranking is super wrong , very few city/country can you experience this.

This is untrue as there are many people smoking in Singapore and this exposes non-smokers to toxic secondhand smoke which contains nicotine and many cancer-causing substances. If only smoking is banned in Singapore and more enclosed smoking chambers are constructed in Singapore to protect the general public from inhaling the noxious incense and cigarette smoke.
If you head down to Blk 65A Circuit Road Singapore 370065, you would have noticed many people smoking illegally at the multi-purpose hall and endangering the safety of patrons to coffee shops. Smoking should be banned in Singapore so as to prolong life expectancy. I am really frustrated by the littering habits of some Singaporeans especially in the poorer districts of Singapore which results in an unsightly neighbourhood.

There is almost no crime. But avoid red districts like Geylang and be careful with people trying to scam you online or in some shops. That's about it.

I grew up and live in Singapore. Very safe, like comments below mentioned, even ladies can take night walks in 3-4am in most places except geylang. If there are tourist whose hotel is in geylang, I suggest traveling in a group, never alone. However, during the day, it's safe to go explore the eateries in geylang alone.
One place that tourist should avoid is sim lim square, as tourists are more likely to get scammed there. Be extra weary if an offer seems too good to be true, especially if you're asked to sign something.

Well hey, they don't call Singapore a very "fine" city for nothing!

@ dave dee what do you mean boring ? so you prefer random stabbing or gunshot ?
Dorothy Doorasamy on Feb 26, 2019:
Singapore is the cleanest and safest country.Never felt that safe in another country.Everything just in order and efficient,just amazing.How do they do it and other countries should learn a thing or too.Had a fantastic stay your citizens are surely proud of your country.
DAVE DEE on Sep 12, 2018:
Super safe but cruel punishments compared to other Western nations like hangings, floggings and detention without trial. And there are fines for everything you can think of - even one for not flushing a toilet. It is absolutely forbidden to criticise the government or any politician at all (even if it's true) which makes for extremely boring (and rigged) elections and a completely emasculated press. If you can imagine still being in school or living in one giant amusement park - well that's Singapore for you. Boring - but safe, modern, clean and expensive.

Hi! I'm from Singapore. If you are a tourist I recommend you to go to can sightsee and even play some mini games! (p.s)ummm...singaporeans speak singlish most of the time so it may be a little hard to understand. Especially the old folks. But it's pretty easy to understand it!

I lived in Singapore for the last 40 years. This is a country with no guns, any form of pyrotechnic is banned, chewing gum is also banned years ago due to people spitting all over the place

Very clean city, you can walk around anytime in the night anywhere in Singapore with all your gold chains hanging from your neck and nobody cares.

The entire city is peppered with police CCTVs and it is almost impossible to escape the law

That said the crime that usually does happen are shoplifting, vandalism, mostly pretty crime, once in a few years, you may probably have a homicide case which is extremely rare
