Dubai is known to be one of the safest cities in the world for expats and for travellers.

So much so, it’s been recognised as a haven for solo female travellers.

According to a survey conducted by travel insurance website InsureMyTrip, Dubai is the third safest city in the world for solo female travellers.

“Overall, Dubai has a very low crime rate and is considered a safe place to travel as a woman, with the majority of public transport in Dubai offering a ‘women’s only section’,” the study stated.

The only two cities which were ranked higher than Dubai were Madinah, Saudi Arabia, which ranked number one, and Chiang Mai, Thailand, which ranked number two.

The UAE is known for always prioritising safety across the nation and continues to rank as one of the top places when it comes to the welfare and security of its residents.

In November last year, in an official report, it was found the UAE is the safest place to walk alone. According to Gallup’s 2021 Global Law and Order report, 95 per cent of the country’s residents feel safe, especially when walking alone at night.

It was an achievement His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, took great pride in sharing, noting how women in the UAE are able to walk home, be it day or night, “without fear”.
