How safe China is for foreign tourists?
China is one of the safest countries to travel around for both men and women. Generally, Chinese are very hospitable to foreigners, no matter what part of the world you are from. You can even walk on the street even in the midnight alone. Most of the Chinese are warmhearted when you need help from them. Violent crimes in China are almost unheard of. The majority of problems are in regards to pick pockets. Keeping a close eye on your possessions you should have no problems.
A good rule of thumb is to keep all of your extra money, passports, and credit cards in a money belt or a pouch hidden underneath your clothing. Keep all other essentials like keys, spending cash, cameras and cell phones in your front pockets, so when walking through busy areas you can keep your hands in your pockets. This makes picking your pocket virtually impossible. If you are carrying a backpack or purse with you, keep it on the front of your body where you can keep an eye on it.
