IF you were asked to name the safest city in the world, what city would you pick?

For the second year running, Abu Dhabi has been named the safest city in the world by 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, including Tokyo, Japan, Basel, Munich, and Vienna, the United Arab Emirates capital has again topped the list as the most secure city in the world.

Its safety index  rose from 86.46 points for the first half of last year to 88.26 points during the first six months of this year.

Abu Dhabi has a strong reputation for safety.

Its virtually crime-free society is a testament to ongoing efforts to establish the emirate as a destination of distinction with international standards of safety.

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

Following Abu Dhabi in the rankings are Doha, Qatar; Osaka, Japan; Singapore; and Basel, Switzerland.
