Abu Dhabi ranks top in 2018 Safest Cities list

Abu Dhabi has been named the safest city in the world for the second year running according to Numbeo, a website that curates and collates data to develop the world’s largest user-contributed database about cities and countries worldwide.

Surpassing more than 300 cities across the world, including Tokyo, Japan, Basel, Munich, and Vienna, the UAE’s capital has again topped the list as the most secure city in the world, with the emirate's safety index rising from 86.46 points for the first half of last year to 88.26 points during the first six months of this year.

HE Saif Saeed Ghobash, undersecretary at the department of culture and tourism, Abu Dhabi, said: “Safety is paramount when choosing a city to visit or live and work in and we are proud to be the top of the list for the second year running. Our capital’s strong reputation for safety and a virtually crime-free society is a testament to the ongoing efforts to establish the Emirate as a destination of distinction with international standards of safety. And we hope that adds to all visitors and residents of Abu Dhabi enjoying their time and making the most of our renowned Emirati hospitality.”

The index ranked 338 cities globally and is an estimation of overall safety levels in any given city or a country.
