I’ve been living in Taiwan for 10 years, after long stays in several other European countries. Taiwan is really a paradise on Earth in terms of security. Taiwan is an example for this world with its education, kindness, respect, tradition and patriotism.

Gang violence is huge in Taiwan. Taipei does just a bit better at organized crime than the rest of Taiwan.

I've lived in Taiwan most of my life. The worst crime ever happened to me is having my brand new bike stolen near MRT, like 10 years ago. Otherwise, it's a fairly safe city. Any major crimes happening (such as homicide) will immediately become outrage news worthy, which just show how rare these cases are.

I'm a Taiwanese, and live in Taipei for over 20 years. I've never encountered any crimes except car accidents. There are still some seller trying to sell some expensive products in the crowded regions, but that's not a big deal.

The best place on Earth. You can stay out at night without any worries in the world, people there are kind and caring, has great mixture between nature and city life. Very safe. Very good city.
