"Safety in Shanghai" Shanghai Warnings Or Dangers Tip by meteorologist1

Shanghai Warnings and Dangers: 135 reviews and 85 photos

by meteorologist1

There are a lot of tourists in Shanghai, and I think it is overall a pretty safe city. The only things I would worry about are being pickpocketed in the subway and bus and being scammed by people (e.g.: taxi drivers) who target tourists. As far as I know there are no "unsafe" areas in Shanghai. It is pretty safe to walk on the streets at night as many locals do and enjoy the nightlife. But like in any big city, use common sense and watch your belongings.
