Pretty safe if you are open minded and a bit accomodating type.

Singapore is one of the safest country in the world. You can go anywhere in the middle of the night and come back in the morning still in one piece with all your valuables still with you. But that does not mean there's no crimes here.

The crime rate is not zero here but it is much lower than virtually any other city. See:

http://www.spf.gov.sg/statistics/crimes ... erview.htm

http://www.spf.gov.sg/statistics/crimes ... annexa.htm

for statistics provided by the Singapore Police Department.

I don't know about your city, but compared to the city I left in the States, the crime rate is much lower.

I am sure there are places that are less safe than others, especially at night, and especially if you are walking into parts of town that may have criminal enterprises, but for the most part, you can go just about anywhere without worry. It is a regular occurence to see women by themselves, hailing a taxi at close to midnight.

Don't worry about 'open minded' and 'accomodating'. Those are wind ups, pure and simple.
