Compared to the US, the chances of you being assaulted are way lower here, there is no private gun ownership, etc. The only thing that may be more prevalent is petty theft, but if you make sure all of your bags have zippers and hold them close to your body in crowded areas, you should be fine. The major scams seem to mostly target guys who are lured into tea ceremony/KTV/art exhibition/happy-endings-that-costs-10,000rmb shakedowns by sexy locals. You will probably just get ripped off at the wet market.

I am about to move to Shanghai and I have been doing a lot of research. A lot of frauds, scams, and safety issues have came up. I'm sure these problems happen in every country and every city. But I guess I am a bit scared since Shanghai is SO populated and overwhelming to the senses. Also, as a girl, I can't help but to fear a bit more for my safety(I feel like we are easier targets).
So I want to ask the ladies, what are somethings you watch out for? Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated!
