How safe is Taiwan for women?

I consider Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the world! People in cafes even leave their laptops on the table when they go to the toilet! If you enjoy night life, we have night market, bars, and all kinds of restaurants still open after midnight.

Taiwan is the safest place I have ever been, specially in Taipei. You can definitely walk in middle of night without worrying too much. Also, people are very nice and friendly to foreigners and travelers.

If you put helmet in public, no body would steal it. People are friendly and honest. people always want to help out if you have a problem in public. Taiwanese are hard working and friendly to foreigners.

Most people are friendly. We are taught that don’t touch strangers stuff. It’s really safe but you still keep your important things with you. It’s the best and safe destination for travel alone for girls

In Taiwan you only need to worried about your umbrella in the public… Stuff like Ipad or laptop, people just leave it on the table at the coffee shop as a sign that this seat is seated. If any bad things happened, don’t worried, our police do their job🤣🤣

Safety country. And people here are friendly and welcome foreigners visit. Plus, most of Taiwanese are good at English so it is easy to travel here. No need to have good Mandarin. Finally, it is totally okay to leave your stuff on the table, then go to the desk to order your meal! So how do you think how safe is Taiwn🫢

There are many Surveillance cameras in Taiwan. So people know if they do something bad, they will be found and arrested right away🤣. People are enthusiastic about helping people especially foreigners, so there’s no fear of asking help 😇

Overall it is very safe for female, but avoid dark and narrow streets at late night, especially in the countryside. Be aware of people around you when you are walking alone at night, better to have an accompany with you.

It's very safe in Taiwan. As a backpacker who was in Southeast Asia, Taiwan is considered more expensive and is comparable to the cost one would incur in Singapore. As there are many delicious street food in Taiwan, it's good to make friends and have people to share the food together! Hostels in Taiwan are more expensive on the weekends as the locals are also traveling within their country. Good to book in advance if you're moving cities over the weekend.

Taiwan is a very safe country for female travellers. It was super simple to solo travel because the trains and bus make it easy to get around and people are helpful. I recommend visiting taipei, juifen, sun moon lake and hualien. The nature is beyond stunning here.

Is Taiwan worth visiting?

Overall rating

4.7 /5

based on 16 experiences

Solo travel experience

I travelled all around the island, half of it by public transportation, and half bu hitchhiking. It was such an amazing experience! People are very nice and helped us a lot in many ways. Food and transportation aren't that expensive, but accommodation can be. I was hosted a couple of times, camped outside and stayed in hostels. If you decide to stay in a hostel/hotel, you better book in advance, at least a day prior. Taiwanese are pragmatic and organized people, and would be too surprised or feel uncomfortable if you suddenly look for an accommodation. For transportation, it's very easy. Just buy the Easy card and use for buses, trains, and subway!

Family travel experience

Spend 8 days in Taiwan with family. We enjoyed it overall. Took a road-trip to Taroko and Sun Moon Lake and there are lots more to see. Taipei is vibrant with lots of sights and things to do too as a family with elderlies and small kids.
