Seoul and Tokyo are among the top 10 safest cities in the world.
Living in Seoul I can say that it has a very active and vibrant night life and also it is very safe for females too. So you don’t have to worry going out at night and alone.
You can walk alone and even when take a late night taxi, will not have any problems. Even when drunk going back home, no one will bother or try to take advantage of you.
There are some petty crimes here and there but generally foreigners are safe as there are no hate crimes.
Almost half of South Korea’s population lives in Seoul and its surrounding areas. There are CCTV’s everywhere and even small alleys.
There are lot of things to do in Seoul from museums to art galleries, riverside parks to mountains, traditional old districts/towns to modern city centres and the amazing Korean food.
