  1. I live in China, in a fairly large city but nowhere near the ‘mega cities’ like Beijing or Shanghai.

    Let me put it this way.

    In my small town back in the US I would go for early evening runs. The sun was still mostly up and the streetlights hadn’t even turned on yet. I was on edge the entire time, wouldn’t even wear headphones. I was constantly checking my surroundings. Probably made me run faster.

    In China I have walked home from KTV at 2 am in the morning and never had the slightest sense of being in danger. I’m not saying it is a great idea to do that. But if I, as a woman, feel safe enough to walk alone in the middle of the night for the better part of an hour, it’s safer than most places.

    Keep your normal street smarts about you and you will be fine.

    (Also you can call a cab directly to you using the ‘call a taxi’ feature on the app WeChat.)

    Edit

    For those of you down voting comments that confirm how safe China is at night, what’s your deal? Do you not believe us or you are just so prejudiced against the country that you can’t handle a single positive comment about it?

    If you have had a different experience in China please feel free to write your own answer. But lay off other peoples’ experience.
