Numbeo is a joke and the Taiwanese trolls on here trying to make it seem like it's the safest place in the world are hilarious. Can't wait for Taiwan to be inevitably retaken by China.

Taiwan is not part of communist China and has nothing to do with communist China. Please stand up for Taiwanese and help us to stop the bully from China.

I'm Taiwanese from the "country" of Taiwan. I'm going to contribute the information~:D
Taiwan is really safe and convenient, and it is also known called food/fruit paradise.
none the less to say, people here are very friendly~
and if you want to study mandarin, Taiwan is a best choice to stay~

Been travelling in more than 60 countries, i am honestly telling that Tiawan is really a paradise. Walking dogs at night time,
having food somewhere at midnight around the city can be so convenient and safe. Taiwan is safer than Japan

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.
