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.

How come japan is the safest? What happen to the yakuza clan? Prostitution is all over the place. It only proves that the people there are desperate to have a job even it causes their dignity. Is that what safe mean is? Last few years, I read an article on news paper about a guy from japan who chop chop the body of a teenage girl. He have many victims before he got caught by the police. I would rather prefer South Korea to be the safest place because the people there are more focusing on entertainment and talents like music. Although, japan is also the same but, South Korea is more safest.

I'm not Japanese, but it is really safe. The homicide rates are some of the lowest in the world. - PhoenixAura81

Hey! Deserves to be in the top 10. It's actually safe there, my friend said.

Better safety regulations for physical and mentally for safety and health.

2 Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

Turkey's not that safe anymore.

Who who who why is Turkey at the top are you crazy!

Just think of all the terrorism on the Turkish airlines

Seriously? This is at the top? Where's Japan on this list? - ethanmeinster

Number one now. Japan deserves it with some of the world's lowest homicide rates. - PhoenixAura81

3 Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

Strict laws make this country safe and one of the cleanest countries in the world. I want to go there so bad, it looks awesome! - PhoenixAura81

To those who complain our laws are strict, it is to protect our country. Gum can't be sticking to your shoes when you walk and you can't be running back at home before dark because of a crazy protest. We also have no natural disasters.

Singapore is relatively safe because of the tough laws there.

Super safe and very stable. No threats as long as you know when to shut your mouth.

4 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.

You see, the thing about Kazakhstan is that nobody is going to invade it. The reason is : Why? Kazakhstan has no use if you were to invade it.

Kazakhstan is rich with great culture

Potassium stronk

I'm really glad Kazakhstan is 2nd. I've been researching Kazakhstan and the cultures there for quite some time now and I'm really wanting to visit there. I'll feel safer if I ever decide to go there now 😃

5 Malaysia Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying the Malaysian Peninsula and part of the island of Borneo. It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such more.

May be it safe but this country is real racist and unfriendly for democracy. Well, that's it.

No, it's not and who can you be racist or unfriendly for something that doesn't physically exist? - Votebotingsucks

This country is not a bit safe at all it's so dangerous I am very worried about my friend

Malaysia is my country

Cops will driving around your neighbourhood..

6 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Philippines is one of a safe country

9% say the Philippines is the safest Asian country. You know what. If so, this can be a breaking news on CNN, idiots.

I'm as proud to be a Filipino as the next guy, but even I know that the Philippines is not safe, at all.

Maybe it is someone from another country - jojodgreat

7 Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages more.

I like Indonesian people because they are friendly, helpful, and always smiling.

Yeah, deserved this one

Indonesia isn't just safe, but the people always smiling and helpful. That's why there's a stereotype that say: "Indonesians are smiling everywhere, even when they're sleep"

8 Bhutan Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas.

If India is a safe place then Israel and Palestine are friends.

Well places are safe but not advisable to roam at night alone

Who told u India is not safest country. India is the best country in the world for safe.

10 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.

Maldives is even safe

18 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle East) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic. The capital city is Riyadh.

Not that safe honestly.

It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

I think, North Korea could be the safest place. It's like a stormy weather. The center has no rain and storm while the side is raining and storming. If North Korea is the cause or the center of WW3, it is ideal to go there and be safe.

A very dangerous country. Who would want to live there?

Are you kidding me? North Korea is SUPER dangerous!

Safest country in Asia? No, the WHOLE WORLD! - riceboydm

Yeah, so I guess we're all forgetting about Kim Jong-Un's supply of nuclear missiles. - Songsta41

21 Thailand Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is a country at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia.

Safe with its army

24 Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia. more.

I think Maldives is the safest

There is such a beautiful place and safe for people to live in there. But sometimes the Indian people claims up with fake news that makes Nepalese people unhappy. Like last time they said Buddha was born in India. That's not fair. Everyone in this earth knows that Buddha was born in Nepal. Another thing that, the comedian Kapil sharma of India says Mt Everest is located in India. What the hell. That's rude. We all knows that Mt Everest is in Nepal. All Nepales people don't like those people. My advise for India is to stop claims fake news.

25 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.
26 Jordan Jordan, officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an Arab kingdom in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the Jordan River.

28 Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

Good work

29 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. more.

Well, it is very safe in that the crime rate is much lower than Russia, but it has a FASCIST government in charge, so with the nazi regime still in power, I don't think you should be calling it safe in terms of arrests and arbitrary treatment.

Iran is gooohtarin country for live in world

30 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Afghanistan is the 4th most dangerous country in the world! It should not be on this list!

Incredibly safe and beautiful
