Just putting this here for discussion.( Not sure how trustworthy these statistics are. Source given is the 2016 crime index by Numbeo.)
People who travel a bit through SEA, how would you rate your perception of SEA crime rates ? Agree with this, or disagree ?

This would depend on whether it is just crime or reported crime. Remember not all crime is reported to the police so will not show up in any statistics .

Malaysia: Among The Most Dangerous Countries In The World?

If anything, crime should be dropping as the country continues to modernize. Yet across the country, crime appears to be on the rise. This is especially true for violent crimes as a string of high-profile shootings has rocked the nation this year. The U.S. Embassy has also warned American citizens to watch out for purse snatching, and the online data collection site Numbeo has recorded an increase in its crime perceptions index.

Violent crime rates have also spiked among the country’s youth. The Malaysia Crime Prevention Foundation found a three-fold increase in juvenile crime in 2012 over 2011. Meanwhile, in 2013 the youth crime rate in the northern state of Penang jumped by some 26%, a worrisome trend that could result in even higher crime rates in the future as the youth mature into adults.

According to the government, the violent crime rate actually doubled from 2000 to 2009 before declining. Still, 2013 may actually see crime rates rise after the repeal of tough security laws which made it easier for police to detain people. At the same time, gun violence is also increasing, despite Malaysia featuring some of the toughest gun laws in the world. Data released from the police showed violent gun crimes, including murder and robbery, rose in the first half of 2013 when compared with 2012.http://www.valuewalk.com/2013/11/malays ... countries/

I would have thought it was the Philippines up until a few months ago.

Phillipines must have changed their definition of a crime and changed their reporting system.
I would have seen them way higher up in that list, as in Vietnam and the Phils leading.

Like someone else mentioned, in many countries in the region a lot of crime goes unreported.
Malaysia is not one of them it seems.
I never felt threatened in Malaysia.
Probably the most civilized place in S.E.A (bar Singapore)...also the most boring (bar Singapore!)
Most of the crime is comitted by Indians in Malaya...usu. against other Indians
The Chinese specialize in white-collar crime esp. credit card fraud or ATM scams
