Singapore is top Asian country for safety, quality of living

Singapore has come out tops in Mercer's Quality of Living and Safety surveys. The city ranked 25th in the Quality of Life survey and eight in the safety one. Singapore beat countries like Tokyo (46), Hong Kong (70) and Kuala Lumpur (76) in terms of quality of life to be the highest ranking Asian country on the list. Singapore rose in the rankings after coming in 28th last year.
