Dubai ranked 6th safest city in the world

And Abu Dhabi is officially the safest city on the planet for the third year

Dubai ranked 6th safest city in the world

We love the UAE for a huge number of reasons, from its sandy beaches, to scream-inducing theme parks, stunning architecture and top-notch restaurants.

And it can also be credited for its safety. Recognising the UAE capital as a great place to live, Abu Dhabi was recently named as the safest city in the world, that’s the entire world, for the third year in a row.

Crowd sourced global data website Numbeo placed Abu Dhabi at the top of their list ahead of 330 other cities across the world.

And Dubai was ranked in sixth place, up from its position of 11th last year.

The ranking is based on user feedback who report how serious they felt crime was in the city, how safe they feel and if they have concerns over being attacked due to discrimination.

With the UAE currently celebrating the Year of Tolerance, it will be welcome news that the UAE capital is being consistently recognised and celebrated as a safe and welcoming city to locals and expats who make the city their home.

Other cities that featured in the top ten safest cities included, Quebec City, Taipei, Munich Zurich, Bern and Hong Kong.
