Top 10 Safe Countries Many People Think are Dangerous

Let's face it, there are many countries that the media shows us how "dangerous" they are even though they are actually quite safe. Some of them even our own countries.

The Top Ten

1 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. more.

Japan is a very safe country in most of its regions and I have relatives who have lived there peacefully for years...
Many people think that Japan is dangerous because of World War II actions and because its relations with other Asian countries, but Japan still has one of the lowest crime rates in the world. - RoyKen

2 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Many think so because of North Korea, but those who live in South Korea live a peaceful life and do not have to worry about North Korea or terrorism... - RoyKen

3 Qatar Qatar, officially the State of Qatar, is a sovereign country located in Southwest Asia, occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Many think that Qatar is a radical Islamic country, but in reality it's a very good and safe country. - RoyKen

4 Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. more.

Many think so because of the conflict. But as an Israeli I can say that it is very safe here (especially in Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan).
Yes, we feel the atmosphere of the conflict here daily, but the chances that you will be involved in any possible terror attack are very small.
also we have very high life expectancy here. - RoyKen

5 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

This is a huge place! yes there are many horny people and poverty in some places
but it is not exactly a dangerous place.
There are also quite a lot of technological and developed places in India. - RoyKen

6 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

You are semi-correct, but its not Mississippi that is the problem. Take away the homicide rate of the half-dozen worst "inner cities", Chicago and Detroit being the absolute worst, and the US is an extremely safe place. True that hapless tourists can accidentally wander where they should never go, but a bit of research ahead of time, and really just being aware of your surroundings will steer you clear of bad areas.

Except for some states (*Cough* Mississippi *Cough*) this place is pretty safe and most of the people on the top tens are Americans so they can explain to you why better than I can do. - RoyKen

7 Kazakhstan Kazakhstan, officially known as the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country in northern Central Asia, with a sliver of its territory west of the Ural River extending into Eastern Europe.

Many people think that Kazakhstan is an undeveloped and primitive country (mostly people who saw Borat),But in reality you can live there safely. - RoyKen

8 Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

Yes China is not the best or the freest place to live in, but it's pretty safe there if you live in developed places like Shanghai, Bei Jing (and Hong Kong if you consider it a part of China) - RoyKen

10 Moldova Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south.
