How safe is Singapore?

Singapore is a really safe city, especially for women! However, remember that it’s always better to avoid a traumatic situation - hence I would still recommend to be considerate at night or after drinks as I’ve been followed once. Maybe no bad intentions but still. Overall, you can be relaxed about your belongings, even in crowded places such as hawker center, but again don’t try for the sake of it ;)

Singapore has got very strict laws and people are generally really nice and follow them. I would say Singapore is the safest place I have ever been in, even in comparison to Japan. Though, I will still recommend vigilance for ladies, unfortunately. Just to keep yourself safe! But generally, there is nothing much to worry about.

If you’re staying in the city, it’s pretty safe. Just don’t go anywhere private with people you don’t know/trust. Further out from the city, I wouldn’t recommend walking through dark alleyways and isolated park connectors after dark.

Safe to roam around alone. Not much of a concern. Stay to take public transport. Most people can speak English thus communication will not be a problem. Money changer available at airport, town. Hotel rate reasonably

always take reasonable safety precautions, but don't worry! almost no crime ever occurs here. feel free to walk around at night, as our streets are well lit. in the very unlikely case of an emergency, police are quick to respond.

If I was doing some work at a cafe and needed to go to the restroom, I would be able to trust the person beside my table to look after my belongings for awhile. I would be able to get home without qualms after a late night with friends by public transport.

I work all hours of the day. On days that I finish work at 9.30pm, I feel safe traveling back home knowing that the public transport is still running and everyone minds their own business. I normally reach home after 11pm, sometimes close to midnight if I work afternoon shifts.

I often leave my front door unlocked and I've no issues with walking down an alley at the red light district by myself. People leaves you alone. You can find YouTube videos showing people leaving their valuables in a busy place and their stuff remains untouched.

Singapore is literally the safest city out there! With street lamps that keep the roads and pavements always well lit, and public transport that is frequent, reliable and well-connected, you never have to worry! Everyone speaks English, so you can always ask for help (Singaporeans are very friendly). It's quite a lively city, so you don't ever feel too creeped out. In the unlikely event something does happen, the police is very responsive and reliable.

Probably one of the safest countries in the world. Safe while walking very late at night night, after going to bars and a night out. Public transportation is very clean and very safe to use during operational times.

Is Singapore safe to travel?

4.9 /5

Based on 16 experiences

Solo travel experience

I traveled to Singapore for one weekend from the Philippines. It was a last minute trip and I felt better booking the trip knowing I had family there at that time. I stayed in a little hotel away from all of the action and I took Lyft for most of my time in Singapore. Next time I will book closer to Sentosa and downtown so it is more convenient. I felt relatively safe traveling on my own and would definitely go back!

Solo travel experience

It’s the safest city I’ve ever been. Even during late night, walking solo in little streets feels safe. The rules in Singapore are strict and this leads to a very respectful environment. If you cross the road with a man, the man will do two steps on the opposite side than you to avoid touching you by any chance. They want to avoid troubles. Enjoy the city (which is amazing) in the safest mood even if you are a female solo traveller!

Is Singapore worth visiting?

I had a great experience. It was a good size for seeing around in short time. People are kind. City is clean. Food is tasty. Only bad point is that many things are more expensive. But you can get affordable price and tasty food at hookers.

I loved traveling to Singapore, I've stayed there for an exchange experience as a student and it was just amazing. Definitely recommend mala food if you like spicy food and definitely try indian food and don't forget to try kaya toast with egg for breakfast! Also, my favorite area was kampong glam, but overall I enjoyed Singaporean contrasts.
