Singapore is top Asian country for safety, quality of living

Posted on: December 1, 2011


Singapore has come out tops in Mercer’s Quality of Living and Safety surveys. The city ranked 25th in the Quality of Life survey and eight in the safety one.

Singapore beat countries like Tokyo (46), Hong Kong (70) and Kuala Lumpur (76) in terms of quality of life to be the highest ranking Asian country on the list.

Singapore rose in the rankings after coming in 28th last year.

This year, the survey separately identifies those cities with the highest personal safety ranking based on internal stability, crime levels, law enforcement effectiveness and the host country’s international relations.

Luxembourg tops this personal safety ranking, followed by Bern, Helsinki and Zurich – all ranked at number two.

Singapore, ranking eight, is the only Asian country in the top 30.
