This is untrue however, in contrary some Asian countries even have some of the lowest crime rates in the world. In this article we will go over some of the safest and generally best cities to do an internship at. Of course a healthy dose of caution is always good, but don’t let yourself be limited by irrational fears of the unknown. With that being said, here are the top safest countries and cities when deciding where to intern in Asia.

Japan is the second most populous island country. It is divided into 47 prefectures that consist of many big cities. more than 90% of the Japanese live in cities, it makes sense that the Greater Tokyo metropolitan is the biggest in the world with over 38 million people!

Taiwan is very safe because like the other places mentioned, it has a low crime rate, friendly people and one of the best medical support in the world. Unlike some other countries in Asia, Taiwan’s Doctors are trained overseas, and medical care is taken extremely serious. There are many sights to see, like the famous Taiwan Taipei, one of the tallest buildings in the world. But be aware, like many big cities, pickpocketing is a fairly common risk. Keep an eye out for your belongings and never put your wallet in your back pocket or an easily accessible purse.

Located in the southeastern part of Asia, at the tip of Malaysia, Singapore is known for its personal security, diversity, and modernism. Singapore is among the top 10 safest countries in the world. However, the laws are a bit stricter. In some parts, smoking is illegal which makes the air cleaner. Vandalism and drugs are frowned upon. Fun fact, chewing gum is illegal; so, don’t bring that with you! Singapore is pretty clean, and littering can result in serious fines. For women to travel alone in this country it is safer compared to other countries. As for security, Singapore has a big police force and they are more reliable than other countries in Asia.

Malaysia is a country located in Southeastern Asia, partly on a peninsula of the Asian mainland and partly on the northern third of the Borneo Island.

The western side of Malaysia borders with Thailand is connected with Singapore by a causeway and a bridge, and has coastlines on the South China Sea and the Straits of Malacca, while the eastern side of Malaysia (Borneo) borders with Brunei and Indonesia.

In time, it has developed into one of the richer nations in Southeast Asia with its investments in high technology and its oil wealth, and since that is the case, Malaysia became a bingo for many tourists: it isn’t a third world country, but a developed one where everything works well with high-tech technology, yet its prices are more than reasonable compared to other developed countries in its vicinity, like Singapore.

So, even though it is crawling with visitors and has a reputation of a safe country, there are definitely areas to be avoided.

Vietnam is a very culturally oriented and adventurous country. With 40% of the country’s land devoted to mountains and 42% of the land tropical forests. There’s a high level of biodiversity (a wide variety of life different ecosystems). Locals and tourists enjoy hiking, surfing, diving, and sightseeing. The only things to be aware of are the types of jellyfish if you go swimming in the water; if you don’t bother them, they won’t bother you. The city traffic is very busy and it’s best not to rent or drive a car while you’re in Vietnam. Locals are known to be friendly if you need help with directions.
