Tianjin offers you as safe an environment as any destination in China. Women have reported they are comfortable to walk anywhere in the city’s well-lit areas. Nevertheless, avoid letting your guard down completely, refrain from displaying your valuables, and stay relatively alert.
If you end up drinking at a night club, make sure to arrange your transportation beforehand to avoid making yourself an easy target. At most of the nightclubs, the locals don’t appreciate loud or anti-social behaviour.
When travelling with a cab, make sure the driver turns on the meter before departing. Some drivers don’t turn on the meter to try and overcharge foreigners. If they refuse to turn on the meter, get another cab. For other travelling options, use the public bus system, but avoid other people offering transport or day tours; they are doing so illegally.
You would be wise to get all your routine vaccinations before making your way to Tianjin. You may also wish to get yourself immunised against hepatitis A and typhoid.
