Walking around in the midnight in Taipei is very safe as the night is still young and you can still catch the midnight train back home safely. Most people offer hospitality toward foreigners. Do not be afraid to ask directions, most people in Taiwan would love to help.

Taipei is one of the safest cities in the world. I like enjoying night walks especially to avoid the heat from the day, and in the past 11 years I have been living here not once have I felt in danger. Stay alert (because you never know) but you don’t have to worry too much.

It the capital in Taiwan, safe, fancy and very convenient! The people here is also friendly, don’t need to worry about robbing, if you go to a restaurant, you can leave your bag on the seat and go to toilet.

Like all of east Asia, Taipei is insanely safe! People, including women, walk around with noise cancellation headphones at night all the time. I run at night in the city everyday. A lot of young people speak decent English, but google translate is really useful if you can’t understand something.

Everyone leaves their laptop or bags at their seats in cafes or department store food court to use the toilet, and not need a friend to look after their things. Perfectly safe to walk around the streets in the middle of the night as a single female and not need to worry about robbery or anything. If I forgot something I can go back in a few hours to find it at the same spot where I left it, or someone will send it to lost and found or police station. People are friendly and very willing to help.

Group travel experience

I was in Taipei for 3 days. The weather was a bit gloomy during Chinese New Year. We move around with MRT, bus and local train. The service is top notch. On time, cheap and clean. Food is average for me. It's People are polite and helpful if you try to communicate effectively. Taipei is the most safest city especially for solo female traveller. You can walk the street without so much worries. Accept the scooters. They are a bit reckless. I went with a group but will do it solo next time.
