@ 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

Super safe place, I can walk around in the middle of the night no problem.

Five years living in Singapore. I had about 100 night walks alone (20-min walk between 0:00 and 5:00 am) here and everything was fine. Except once I was bothered by a drunken man near an apartment. Note that you have to bring along your ID in case a policeman approaches and asks you.

I live in Singapore. It's extremely safe . It's urban and is very cosmopolitan. It's a very good place to live.
