Safe Places to Travel to in Asia

When it comes to traveling to Asia, the safety of the country or region you are visiting is a key concern. While it is always a good idea to research the travel warnings that your own country’s government has issued, it is also useful to check with other sources. The travel advice and information website Smart Traveler, for example, is a great source of safety and security information.

Asia is home to some of the most exciting and exotic destinations in the world. The region is rich in culture, history, and natural beauty. There are lots of things to see and things to do in Asia – but which places are the safest to travel to?

Here are some of the places that you can travel to even by yourself.

  • Japan

The Galapagos Islands are a volcanic archipelago that lies on the Pacific Ocean’s equator, 972 kilometers (1,600 miles) west of continental Ecuador. The Galápagos, with its numerous endemic species, is famous as a breeding ground for many species of marine animals. These islands are also popular with eco-tourists who wish to see unique wildlife and landscapes.

Japan is full of surprises, but a big surprise is that it’s safe. Japan is very far from the crime-ridden country that many people think it is. The crime rate is low compared to many other countries. You can walk around in Japan with peace and safety in your mind.

  • Vietnam

Vietnam is a country that has been growing in popularity the last few years, and for a good reason. Not only is it a stunningly beautiful place (both mountains and beaches), but it has a reputation as a budget destination that is cheaper than much of its Southeast Asian neighbors. The country also offers a bit more of a cultural experience than some of the other popular Asian destinations, and the food is amazing.

  • Singapore

it is often touted as one of the safest cities in Asia, and with good reason: it has a low crime rate, almost no violent crime, and an efficient police force. However, like any city, it is not without its dangers.

As we all know, Singapore is one of the safest countries in the world. And what that even means is the citizens of this island nation can rest easy, knowing they’ll never have to worry about crime or theft. After all, the Singapore Police Force is one of the most feared and revered law enforcement agencies in the world, and where else can you find a country where the crime rate is so low that the national police force has an ice hockey team?

Since the country is so small, it is easy to get around on foot, and there is a subway system to get you around even faster. If you want a unique perspective on this tropical island, you can get a tour of the skyline by cable car.

  • Bali

Bali is Indonesia’s tourism hot spot, with a population that’s approximately 85% Hindu and 12% Muslim. There are several sites in Bali that are sacred to both religions. For example, Pura Besakih, one of Bali’s most important and high-profile temples, is dedicated to the Mother Goddess of the universe and is the most important place of worship in Bali. Within Pura Besakih is the grave of a Goddess, and the temple is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists.

There are many travel books and travel blogs that will tell you not to travel to Indonesia because of safety concerns. While there are many places to avoid, mostly in East Indonesia, Indonesia is still a safe place to visit. Indonesia’s current government is cracking down on anything that does not adhere to the Ministry of Religion’s interpretation of Islam, and some areas are known for Islamic extremism. Some of these places are Bali, Lombok, Nusa Tenggara, and Maluku. However, if you plan to avoid the areas in which the government has put in place travel restrictions, then you should be fine.

Now that you have a safe place to travel, always remember the so-called  ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) method.  It will help you to remember the actions to take in case of a violent attack. Also, because we are facing a Covid-19 pandemic, we should obey the safety protocols for us to be safe and stop the spreading of the virus.
