One of things I’ve always been told is that Singapore is the safest country in the world. I’m so used to traveling to dangerous countries in Latin America and I was really interested to see it with my own two eyes. One of the things plastered all over the Singapore’s Changi International airport customs arrivals hall was a warning that read “Death penalty for drug trafficking” and it’s even printed on the embarkation card.

If you’re arriving SIN airport at midnight, the only way you’ll be getting to your hotel is by taxi. Taking a taxi in Singapore is pretty safe since everything is metered and regulated. You even get a printed receipt that is fully itemized line by line that clearly explains the kilometers and charges.
The main touristy areas of Singapore are super clean. You won’t see trash on the sidewalk or highways and it’s forbidden to chew gum. You can be sent to jail for smuggling in packs of gum into Singapore, so don’t even think about it.
I spent a total of three nights and four days in Singapore and I felt pretty safe using the mass rapid transit (MRT) and the bus system. The MRT is clean and it’s absolutely forbidden to consume food or drink in any of the stations and in the trains.
I did a fair share of walking during the day and night time where I did not feel threatened at all. Everyone is pretty friendly and minds their own business. Singaporeans are really proud of their country and can’t say the same for crime ridden neighbor Malaysia.
