How safe is China?

Michael Martinez
Very, very safe. I spent a month in Shanghai last year and was amazed at the total lack of violent crime. You can walk around any place in the city, day or night, by yourself, whether you are a man, woman or child, whether Chinese or foreigner, with zero chance of being mugged or attacked. I asked my coworkers and friends why, and they said it was because (a) nobody owns guns, (b) the government and police have tight control, and (c) penalities for violent crime are so severe that nobody dares to do it. It also seems the mentality of the Chinese, from what I have glimpsed into it, does not lend itself too much towards violent crime. (A bit odd, considering their kung fu fame.)


I can speak from first hand experience, having wandered around Shanghai by myself at all hours, and from discussions with my office mates there and my Chinese friends both there and here, that Chinese cities are orders of magnitude safer than American cities. In fact, I will go so far as to say that Shanghai is the safest city that I’ve ever been in.


I was told that pickpocketing and petty thefts are common. I didn’t experience it myself, but I can believe its true.



Michael Martinez
I just got back from Shanghai again, this time I was there for 2 weeks. Exactly the same impression as I had the first time. Except now I’m going to say that pickpocketing and thefts are probably NOT common. People are very consientious about following the rules (at least in Shanghai). On a couple occasions I had restaurant employees actually return money to me when I had overpaid, even after I had walked away and sat down. The picketpocketing might have been something that happened in the past (or perhaps still happens in other cities), but I get the impression that things have changed quite a bit in China in recent years and those types of things don’t happen anymore.

我刚从上海回来,这次我在那里呆了两个星期。和我第一次的印象完全一样。不过现在我要说的是,扒窃和盗窃可能并不常见。人们非常谨慎地遵守规则 (至少在上海是这样)。有几次,当我多付了钱的时候,甚至在我走开坐下之后,餐厅的员工也会把钱还给我。扒窃可能是过去经常发生的事情(或者仍然发生在其他城市中),但我的印象是,近年来中国发生了很大的变化,这类事情不再会发生了。


Kenny Ye
about the kungfu fame, actually, even back to whole thousands of years of history, kungfu has never been ordinary peoples’s stuff. 99.9% of chinese people never really learn about fighting…


XueTao Liu
In fact, most Chinese haven’t learnt kung fu. kung fu is only a tale in traditional stories and films.

Yes, it’s a very good place to live.
There is a tremendous amount of variety depending on where you live. Most importantly, the food varies a lot from region to region. To get the most out of it though, you need to know Chinese.
It’s very safe, much safer than the US.
If you are older, you will be treated with more respect than in western societies.
For most women, there is less sexual harassment than in many western societies.
The people are generally interesting, and have a fun sense of humor.
You can talk about more subjects with people than you can in the west because you don’t need to worry about political correctness. (In China, it doesn’t exist.)



Daniel Xu, Average Chinese living in China
I will answer this question in a really different way.
If as Ray Comeau said we “assume this means how safe is it to live or travel in China, compared to other countries”, and we take traffic as a key uation factor for personal safety, since worldwidely there are way more people hurt or killed in car accidents than there are wounded or killed by guns, or any other kinds of accidents or crimes.
China should be one of the worst countries to live in!

如果Ray Comeau说我们“假设这意味着与其他国家相比,在中国居住或旅行有多安全”,那我们就以交通作为人身安全的一个关键的评估因素,因为在世界范围内,相比于其他任何事故和犯罪行为,有更多的人因为车祸而受伤或死亡。


And when a Chinese driver tells you he's “a good one”, it never means he has excellent driving skills, is means “I know every ways to break the traffic circulations and get away with it! Trust me! I tried each and every of them!”


The same applies to Chinese pedestrians, how many Chinese have you seen waiting for a green light? And there is this average Chinese citizen answering “Do we need to wait for the lights? And I thought they were for cars.” Or another young white collar speaking with a real serious tone “Life is short, I must get good use of every second of my life.” Did you feel the sarcasm? Life could be really short indeed, if you get hit by a truck. Remember what just happened at the Tour of Qinghai Lake last Sunday? Some dude ran to the middle of the road when the cyclists were about to pass by. Sure the guy was mentally unhealthy, but this is nothing compared to “mentally healthy people” crossing the road in really busy places in rush hour, like the evil Guomao or Zhongguancun in Beijing.


Edit: found two comment saying sb. In English it means: Stupid asshole. Actually lots of my compatriots (yeah, Chinese people) respond with this when they are just not human enough to face the truth and admit they were doing something wrong.



Matthew Bell, Expat and Loving It
Undoubtedly, China is the safest country I have ever lived in. Coming from a 27 year old African-American, you don't have to worry about your safety at all compared to living in the United States.


In America, there is constant gun violence across the country. In China, there are no guns at all (except for certain agencies). After living in China for some time now, it is perplexing that Americans have such easy access to shoot someone, even in common cases such as road rage.


In America, part of the gun violence stems from police, and causes high stress in many communities. In China, it is much more peaceful, and the police will rarely approach you, if at all (and they don't carry guns).


In America, I would rarely walk around at night in a major city, unless it was a popular area or just walking to my car. In China, I have explored many areas in major cities late at night, and never ran into any trouble. Also, the culture in China is very social at night; many people will eat BBQ on the street and continue the night with friends. If you think New York never sleeps, China REALLY never sleeps.


As a foreigner in China, you will encounter many friendly situations with strangers. Parents will encourage their children to speak English with you. People walking past you will want to take a selfie with you (you might be in a city with not many foreigners, or you might look like an NBA player to them). It is very easy to meet new people, including expats and locals.


China is very safe and I highly recommend visiting or living here. There are many factors to why China is so safe, and I encourage you to come experience it for yourself.



Michael Ratajczyk, studied great chinese classics such as san guo, three kingdoms.
Before becoming a professor, I traveled frequently to China for business. Today, I take a class to China every 2 years to study business and culture. So I’ve gone from clueless to well-informed and confident.



However, be vigilant at all times. Know what the currency looks like. Understand the exchange rate immediately. For safe bets, divide by 6 to get USD. Be careful of the currency you get back. Are those Chinese Yuan or Russian Rubles? Don’t take a wad of 100RMB bills and put them in your wallet. Put one or two in so when you pay for something, the seller doesn’t see your riches.


With time, you pick up some language and confidence. You understand negotiations. Words beyond hello and thank you such as this and that, how much, the numbers 1 to 10 and eventually 11 to 100.


I don’t really see tourist traps with pickpockets and tricksters. I see plenty of those in other countries, especially in Europe. But not in the major cities of China. Be confident, know where you’re going and keep moving. Don’t whip out your phone with a glazed look on your face.



David Riordan, Worked in manufacturing in Shenyang; product sourcing and publishing in Beijing
I lived for almost 2 years in Beijing and Shenyang. I also lived in Ireland, Germany and the US. China was by far the safest. I can't talk so much about the female experience, however as a man the only time I saw another man in danger (especially a foreigner), was when he had too much to drink. In this case he would be a menace to both Chinese and non-Chinese alike.



Rameshwar Dubey
I believe that China is one of the safest place. Though my experience is purely on the basis of Shenzen where I am now teaching and mentoring some young researchers. The people are welcoming and pay huge respect. This is a society where I found woman enjoy high respect and get almost equal opportunity. They respect foreigners and have high appetite for learning.


Penny Ling
Shenzhen is definitely not one of the safest place in China to live in. crime rate for robbery is pretty high. You would get rob in broad daylight.


Rameshwar Dubey
Thanks for your update. As I have expressed my opinion only and it may not provides complete picture. However my interaction with local people has been good so far. In some places the existing system is so strong that the criminal tendency is minimal. However, in the absence of legislation the criminal tendency may be observed in any people to a certain degree.


Peter Khoo
Agreed! Not all cities in China are safe. Shenzhen is a notorious place, lots of pick pocket incidences. However, the tourist police are extremely efficient. Beware too of certain cafe in Shanghai which would charge you an exhorbitant prices for their coffee and cakes. This happened to my staff who was billed rmp 8k for a 5 cups of coffee in Pacific Coffee; he called the police the next day and the manager was warned to return the 8k as otherwise he will be charged for fraud. Glad to say it was returned without any further problem. They have 2 sets of menu! One for the gullible and one for locals! Beware! Not all Chinese cities are safe.



Ken Duffy
Taiwan is a very different story? why?


Joseph Fu
I returned to Taiwan after absent for almost 40 years in 2010 for half year. I got a feeling I was walking in downtown of any major America city in 1970's. I got scared a few times In Taipei and New Taipei.


I am a Chinese and I have lived in several different places in China. Yes, I don’t know everything in China. But,I think I know China a lot more than you. Yes, we need to take time into account. But if someone ever saw native amaricans being killed in America long long ago. Does that mean this is what is America society like nowadays?


Emily Fisher
Interesting that the question was HOW SAFE IS CHINA, and it automatically went to the question of crime, when China is a country so thoroughly polluted that you can't safely breathe the air, or eat the pesticide-filled food!
Great, so I'm not raped in 5 minutes. Hardly relevant if I'm already dead from breathing!


easy,we all alive .

And how are your lungs, had them checked lately?


Jon Karmazin
I lived in south korea, and it was much safer than the usa.


Jim Diamond
I lived in Beijing for a year and have been back several times. I never felt in danger. I read occasionally of foreigners who got in trouble, but the circumstances seemed to involve drugs, alcohol, or sex, or some combination thereof.


Johnson Oteri
Apart from your confirmation that China is safe which i believe is true, is China free. As a black businessman, we are easily picked out in any place. Is the country free to move and do business?



Simmy Ba
So how were they towards you?


Lerfu Ma
hey man ,Trust me,most of them are just curious about your appearance with no offences. As you kown there are little of blackmans in China.



Momo Zhan
As a Chinese I can say burglary and pocketpicking in China happens. But as a girl I can walk on the street drunk at 4 in the morning but worry free.


Rae Qin
I think it highly depends on what street of which cities exactly you are walking on. If it is one without those CCTV cameras, I will be praying for your safety.


Xinru Zhang
can’t agree more.


圆 聂
as a girl I can walk on the street drunk at 4 in the morning but worry free.——— the street means almost any street,yes, China is much more safe in the night than any in the Europe or in US


Jeff Boeker
I've lived in Shanghai for the past 7 years and have spent time in many other Chinese cities. In general the threat of physical violence is very small. It is always safe to walk the streets. I allowed my daughter to take the subway by herself when she was in middle school. In Kunming, a second tier city in the southwest with a population of around 3 million, I could walk in narrow, unlit alleyways late at night with no fear except getting lost.


Nonviolent theft can be a problem: pickpockets are rife on the bus, especially during the morning commute when they are crammed full. Chinese people are friendly to people they know but not so much to strangers, so if you fall asleep and your purse is stolen, your fellow travelers may not warn you, fearing to get involved.


Where China is not so safe is on the road itself. As a pedestrian crossing the street you’ve always got to be aware of your surroundings, the crosswalk means nothing to most cars – I always try to make eye contact with the driver. Buses are even worse; they care little for traffic regulations and assume they are so big that all will see them and give way before them. Some friends claim that jaywalking in the middle of the block is the safest way to cross the street because you can look in two directions and clearly see the potential vehicles that can hit you, versus at an intersection where vehicles can come from all four directions. The closest I’ve come to being hit was with scooters because, being electrically powered, they are silent and sometimes are traveling against the traffic direction. Bicycling is worse than walking because there’s no sidewalk curb for protection. My kids have to ride on the sidewalk.


Having lived in China for 10 years I never experienced any fear for my safety except on one occasion when an ignorant drunken American guy tried to show his nasty side in a bar one evening. During my time there between 2004–14 in my job as a professional soccer coach it took me to many large cities and small ones too but never once did I experience any problems with Chinese people and I felt the majority in fact would look to help in any way they could which is very similar to my own people here in Ireland who are well known for their hospitality and help towards visitors . China is an amazing country with something for everyone to enjoy and I would recommend it to anyone considering a trip there. While in China I would suggest taking a trip to Hong Kong one of the best cities I have visited bar none. Beijing Shanghai Shenzhen Chengdu Tianjin etc etc are also massive cities that should be visited if you go East. The food is amazing throughout the country with so many varieties, you are spoiled for choice.



Joe Smith
Safe is a relative term. For example, even at home, you are not safe because you may fall down the stairs and die from it. Have you compare the statistics of those Chinese who were wrongfully executed with that of murder victims in, for example, the US?


Matthew Rubenstein
I don’t think either country has reliable stats on wrongful state executions. But I do think that the ones the US has now, due to the DNA testing and exoneration movement of the past decade and more, are more reliable.
As for safety beyond violent crimes, the US is clearly far more safe, since it has very rigorous (though of course needing improvement) product safety, workplace safety and environmental safety system, while China has little if any of that. Which is what the Chinese economy is built on: cheaper production through government coercion and unsafe living conditions.


Stephen Head
I am from a European culture and have lived in the UK for many years. I have travelled widely through Europe and Scandinavia and also lived in China, specifically in Chongqing, Chengdu and a nearby rural city. In each of these cities I lived in apartments within the suburbs of these places. Despite appearing to be the only European, and being stared at a lot on buses particularly in the rural city, I think I felt more unsafe in parts of London than I ever felt in China. Apartment neighbours would often warn me to be careful for my own safety - mind your wallet and things, but the risk of being mugged in the middle of Rome or Paris I think is probably far greater than I experienced in the Chinese cities I have lived in.


Ian Montgomery
I lived in Zhuhai and Shenzhen between 2004 and 2008 and your assessment agrees with my experience. The only time I felt really uneasy was when i went in to disco in Xi'an and people had lines of cocain on a table. I didn;t stay long!


Yi Ding
report to police!


Kylc Thor
you can dial 110 to report to policemen



Jialiang Cui
Big cities in China are far safer than those in US


Frieda W Landau
I spent two months in China, mainly, Beijing, Chengdu, and Xian. My friend and I went for a walk almost every night after dinner. I’ve never felt so safe in any city in the US or Europe. The only danger in China is crossing a street alone because pedestrians don’t have the right of way, which is why people cross in bunches.


Stephen Ocean
I lived in China for 2 years with my wife and 2 yr old boy.
In some ways China is very safe for western foreigners. No one there wants to loose face and/or get in real trouble by being the one that is responsible for something bad happening to a westerner.
Google the word Guanxi. If you want to live in China, do your best to understand this concept. ( You’ll fail, because you really have to be Chinese to get the nuances, but try anyway. )


Criminals know they’ll pay dearly if they get caught. In a way, you’re always under someone’s protection and any harm to you would be embarrassing to your protectors. They’ll want to recover their good name. Criminals know this too.
On the other hand, China is ruled by a hidden network with zero transparency to foreigners. Don’t cross them, and you’re OK. Do something they don’t like, like cost them money or embarrass them and all bets are off.


Understand too that the population of China does not have much international diversity. Like people in Iowa, they don’t know much about foreigners. This makes them unintentionally prejudice. Attitudes towards women are also very misogynistic. They may hide this, or they may not. Unless you speak fluent Chinese and have a deep understanding of the culture, you’ll never know what people are really thinking.
As a foreigner in China, just as in any country, you are an outsider that is at the mercy of the local culture. If you don’t look Chinese at all, you’ll probably be fine. It feels very safe. It’s something of an illusion though, so don’t be stupid.



Petty theft happens every day. Keep your wallet in your front pocket, your bag zipped and on the front of you and you're fine. And don't travel with huge amounts of money like the Chinese are inclined to do.


Sam Li
I'm from China and currently living in New Zealand. I feel much less safe in NZ.


Quora User
why do you feel much less safe in NZ?


Narayana Prakash
I live in China for 5 years and we see the respect Chinese Men give to girls. If the girls need anything they ask boys and get it.Very safe place compared to India.


Dennis Chan

China is very safe. I’m chinese, I know most chineses are good guys. I believe major bad feelings created by chineses to foreigners are unintentional. It is a difference of culture, almost all people in China will not do harm to others. In real-life, the penalty in China could be very high.

The law is very strict in china and justice is swift.


Matthew Rubenstein
Individual stories don’t represent the experience of 1.5 billion Chinese people overall. In fact the people who can speak English, and read/write comments on Quora discussions, and have the time to do so (especially if maybe they’re paid to do so) - are not representative of the people most vulnerable to crime in China.


The poorest and least connected Chinese people are more vulnerable to crime, and less likely to mix with people who post on Quora discussions. There are hundreds of millions of Chinese people in that less privileged condition.


China’s Communist government routinely makes up statements and data to keep the population under control, to present a rosy picture. But even those official stats show that China has a lot of violent crime:
China vs United States: Crime Facts and Stats


Those stats show China is less dangerous than the US overall, but again, those stats are presented by the Chinese government that makes up propaganda to suit its political priorities.



2) The question of how safe is China in an English forum usually gives people an impression that the question is related to foreigners visiting China, not the native Chinese, and that is why the stories here are from the foreigners, who visited China. These foreigners are sharing their experiences to help those, who could be future China visitors. "The poorest and least connected Chinese people are more vulnerable to crime," as you said, is not closely related to the safety of foreign visitors because they "are not representative of the people most vulnerable to crime in China." as you said.


3) Few foreign visitors are going to China to start an "oppose the government" movement, so it has nothing to do with their safety in China.
In fact, I do share your anti-Chinese government sentiment, but not under the topic of the question here.


Joe Smith
"The official stats are not reliable. There is no way to know how safe China is, especially for Chinese nationals. " as you said, which means your statement like "In fact the people who can speak English, and read/write comments on Quora discussions, and have the time to do so (especially if maybe they’re paid to do so) - are not representative of the people most vulnerable to crime in China. The poorest and least connected Chinese people are more vulnerable to crime" is just as good as those "anecdotes", which you regarded as "The anecdotes here are not data, and are probably even less accurate due to selection biases than the official data.", because, like I said before, "yet you have not presented the data that you deem as accurate to support your argument.". As such, you are free to air your own opinions like people did here, but trying to counter the opinions of the others with nothing to back it up but just your own opinion is not very convincing, especially after you admit that China is less dangerous than the US overall based on the stats you quoted, which collaborates with the individual stories here.


Matthew Rubenstein
I made a simple and universally recognized point: anecdotes from a few individuals are not representative of facts about billions (trillions - quadrillions even) of events in the lives of almost 2 billion people. I further made the point that Chinese government stats about crime are not reliable.


Those are not opinions. Those are statements of fact about anecdotal assertions (by basically anonymous and possibly planted commenters). There are no other stats that can be relied upon to represent the degree of violence in China, except the obvious inference that there is more violent crime than reported by the pacifying government.


You might not be convinced, but you’re casting well established facts I’m applying to this discussion as opinion, which they’re not. So I’m not going to bother repeating myself again, since neither you nor I is going to get anything more out of the discussion. Goodbye.


Joe Smith
I agree with you on the official Chinese data can be manipulated by Chinese government, which we also cannot provide concrete proof but is merely our speculations based on our past experience, but disagree with you on your bias against foreign visitors' stories because I grew up in China and later immigrated into the US. I have friends and school mates all over my Chinese home town. I have my experience in both world, i.e. China and the US. I also visited and stayed in China from 2007-2012. That is why I can resonate with those foreign visitors' stories.
Besides, you said, "but you’re casting well established facts I’m applying to this discussion as opinion, which they’re not. ", implies that you still cannot see that you have nothing concrete to back up your assertions against those foreign visitors' stories, let alone so called "well established facts I’m applying to this discussion", which classifies you assertions as your own opinions.



Joe Smith
That depends on how we interpret the title of the question, "How safe is China". Like I said before,"The question of how safe is China in an English forum usually gives people an impression that the question is related to foreigners visiting China, not the native Chinese, and that is why the stories here are from the foreigners, who visited China.". Obviously, you interpreted it as safety of Chinese people.


1) Regarding the category of the safety of foreign visitors in China, the sampling pool here, though it is small and by no way comprehensive, is enough empirically to help a foreigner in his decision making concerning visiting China, just like we don't have to have all feedbacks of the buyers of a specific product, but just some of them, in order to make an informed decision whether we'd buy it.


2) If you interpret it as safety of Chinese people, then you need concrete data, which as you said is unattainable, to prove one way or another, and foreign visitors safety has nothing to do with that of native Chinese and as such, they did not try to represent the safety of native Chinese, but their own. So we should not lump them together.
The conclusion is we have different interpretation of the title of the question.


Matthew Rubenstein
No. There is not sufficient reliable data about any kind of “safety in China”, from any kind of harm, to any kind of people. The anecdotes in these stories are statistically insignificant, a handful of visitors among millions over the past few years alone. And they have selection bias. Concrete, at least statistically significant if not comprehensive and reliable data are needed to be worth taking any conclusion from, regardless of how the question is interpreted.


You clearly didn’t bother to look at even the link I gave, let alone the subject, and even more clearly don’t understand the issue. I’ve done all I can here. You’re going to stick to the explanation that confirms your own experience, despite the clear reasons I showed you that say there’s no way to know if that explanation is correct. This is another fallacy that you’re choosing instead of valid reasoning, known as “confirmation bias”:
Confirmation bias
While I’m not going to spend any more time explaining how accurate knowledge of the the world works, you’d do yourself a favor to look into it. Goodbye (for real).


Joe Smith
I totally understand the importance of statistics here, but have you ever read customers reviews of a product before buying it? There are many customers buying the product but only a small portion of them give their reviews, which helps other people to make their decisions. They don't have to wait for a complete statistics to do so. That is called a sample pool. Just like the sample pools in the US president elections, they don't have to get a total statistics and they don't have to worry about the bias of the samples, though the polls may turn out wrong, but statistically it is relative reliable and that is why they do it. That is exactly what these "handful of visitors" did here and that is why I said, "Regarding the category of the safety of foreign visitors in China, the sampling pool here,though it is small and by no way comprehensive, is enough empirically to help a foreigner in his decision making concerning visiting China, ". Pay attention to the word, "empirically".



Hima K. Reddy
I visited China solo and have been to Guangzhou, Shunde and Fosham for getting acquainted with some high-end furniture manufacturers. I felt that the place was very safe for women. Except for the language barrier, I faced no challenge. I felt that people mind their own business and don’t try to exploit you except when you are conducting some trade. If you are there for buying something, all you need to have is good negotiation skills, a translator that is on your side and subject matter expertise.
Regarding safety, I was on roads pretty late in the night and had no bad experience whatsoever.


Laura Stripp
I currently live in China, out in “the sticks” ie, a small city that sees no foreigners. And I stand out everywhere I go being a red headed female and fat. Even here, it is very safe. The worst was when some old lady got up into my face yelling something at me in Chinese.


Miles Howe
I have travelled to China on a number of occasions and can say without reservation that I felt much safer there than I ever have in the US. The Chinese are polite and predictable, sometimes pushy when it comes to getting on buses and trains but personal safety wise 10 out of 10.


Andrew Webb
Agreed. Dublin can be quite a dangerous place.


Shi Ivy
As a Chinese I must say in big cities like Shanghai and Beijing,you don't need to worry about yourselves at all.But in small villages,people are almost not be educated,and it will be dangerous if you enrage them.....Anyway,no foreigners will come to small villages in China…


Jemmy Bloocher
I lived in China, the south of China in Fujian province for a while and having lived all over the world with work and study I can honestly say I have never felt safer than I felt in China, even more than my home town of Edinburgh, which is a very safe city.


Jean Robinson
I spent two weeks in China producing a documentary and I worked with an all Chinese video crew. I felt very safe there. The Chinese video crew enjoyed working with me because I am American and they felt they could learn a lot from me. For some odd reason they think Americans are all very smart and successful…go figure. When I walked around shopping and sightseeing by myself I was stopped several times by students who wanted to practice their English with me. I had a great experience there. Before I left for China I was told it was best not to carry around a book or anything with the Dalai Lama’s image on it, that would be a huge no-no.


Jj Bults
I have been going to and living in China for 17 years. The country has changed like crazy. The one thing that didn’t change: it is safe. One of my friends got mugged in Beijing - by Spanish guys. I walked every possible street in the night. Nothing bad ever happened. In USA I have had guns pointed at me…


Ruphina Nwachukwu
I lived in China for more than 10years and i will say that China is a safe country.The only area to worry is pickpocket, learn to carry less cash if need be,take your credit card with you if you want to buy things.


Dorothy Curley Tecklenburg
I lived in Beijing for five years. It really helps when the penalty for violent crimes against a foreigner is death.


Serena Qing Mu
What? I was born and raised in China. Never even once did I hear about that.


Dorothy Curley Tecklenburg
It was part of the corporate briefing we received when we moved there. It was proven true when a woman in our compound was murdered. The police had no idea who did it, so they went and arrested some farmer and executed him. Notice i said “violent” crimes. not petty theft or anything minor.


I have heard some foreigners have some privileges but not that privileged, it's just insane, doubt it…..


Tang Yi
you are joking, isn't it?



Chuck Walker
I would be more worried about the air quality. Certain areas of the country have the highest levels of airborne toxins in the world.


Debra Yerike
I would imagine it would be wise to read about the culture and cultural expectations before going to live there, as anywhere else- yet expect the unexpected. That is, don’t let other people's opinions and prejudices cloud your expectations and experience.


Clark Pa
Not if you include “Food Safety” in the category of “safety”.


Patrick Pan
Yes, China's public safety piece is still doing better, but the food safety is indeed difficult to make people satisfied


Bojan Zivkovic
You're never safe in dictatorship country. You might feel safe and tell stories about feeling safe doing this or that while you were in China, however real truth is that you are safe only if there are laws to protect you and law enforcement to enforce the law. In China law doesn't protect you, it protect only the government. You're just the cog in the system that can always be crushed. If you're American in China, your biggest protection there is your passport.


Naga ghoda
sounds same like india….only difference is india has namesake democracy


Ginger J


Huang Mipi
If you lived in white house, it is also safe:D. different place different safe level. The chinese gov invests safe resources depend on the city size.


Sarah Alaa Helmey
In fact Asian counties could be considered as safest ones in that world so far, i have friends living in south korea and they say its very safe as well


He Bo
I am a person from china. web in china is not free. we can not use google search. It is too bad.If we want to use google ,I have to Illegal,and it is not easy


Lacy Li
I have already been living in China,Shenyang for 1 year, Beijing for 2 years, and other places for 26 years, I am still alive and very healthy. haha~~~


Sugar Zhang
It's very Very safe in China, We Ban guns,obey law. You Can walk on The street in day and night Without Worries



Julia P Scott
I consider china one of the safest place too, and people are also very very nice!
