Is it safe for women to travel alone in China?
China is regarded as a safe place to travel for both men and women, however female travelers are sometimes more likely to encounter harassment, but uncomfortable situations can often be avoided by taking the following precautions. Dress conservatively. Although short skirts and tank tops may be comfortable, they may also encourage unwanted attention. Avoid walking alone late at night or in questionable neighborhoods. Do not agree to meet a person whom you do not know in a secluded place. Be aware that some men tend to mistake the friendliness of foreign women for romantic interest. Be wise and it is unlikely that you will experience any difficulty.
