Dubai is one of the safest places in the world and it doesn't surprise residents
Have you ever left your purse in the mall in Dubai? or your bag in the back of a taxi? Well, if you've done any of those things anywhere else in the world, chances are you've lost those things forever. But not here in Dubai. There's a 100% chance that both your purse and your bag will be handed back to you.
So, for most residents, it really doesn't come as a surprise that Dubai has been voted one of the safest cities in the world. Abu Dhabi was recently named as the safest city in the world for the third year in a row by global data website Numbeo.
Abu Dhabi came out 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.
Our cities at the top of the list were Quebec City, Munich, Zurich and Bern.
The five least safe cities were Caracas, Venezuela, Pietermaritzburg and Pretoria in South Africa, Port Moresby in Papa New Guinea and the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula.
