It doesn’t matter whether you are planning to visit Dubai on holiday or relocate on a much more permanent basis, you will be pleased to know that it is considered to be an extremely safe city. According to crowd sourced global data website Numbeo, Dubai has been ranked as the 6th safest city in the world.
Dubai Ranked As 6th Safest City in the World
There are a number of reason as to why the UAE is so popular. It has beautiful beaches, impressive shopping malls, a number theme parks, great restaurants and a strong culture. Now, safety can be listed as one of these reasons. Numbeo recently looked at 330 cities around the world and named Abu Dhabi as the safest city for the third year in a row. Dubai followed just slightly behind and came in 6th place. This is a noticeable improvement compared to last year when Dubai didn’t make the top ten and was ranked 11th.
These rankings are based on user feedback. Individuals reported on how safe they felt whilst in the city, how serious they felt crime was and whether they had any concerns about being harmed due to discrimination. Along with Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Quebec City, Hong Kong, Taipei, Munich, Zurich and Bern were also in the top ten.
