Shanghai Environment and Security

As the biggest city in China, the environment of Shanghai is quite nice. The streets are well-organized and clean. Although the city was occupied by many highrise buildings, there are still some unique and traditional houses in out-of-the-way places. The fact that Shanghai is a huge city makes it difficult to get around from point A to point B, just like in any other big city around the world, it is easy to get lost.

Generally speaking, Shanghai is a safe city to stay. Some might consider the security of Shanghai to be the best in China.

  • Usually, staying out late won't be a problem in the city center. But it would be wise not to go to the dark back streets during the midnight.
  • Be cautious at places like train stations, subway, and bus stations, putting your bag tightly with you will be a good idea.
  • Local people recommend not going to the northern part of Shanghai, like Putuo District, Hongkou District, and Yangpu District, during the night time, for the street lights in those areas are not bright enough. However, the streets like Nanjing Road wouldn't be a problem.
