I just know there's the stereotype that Shenzhen has higher crime due to migrant workers and no sense of community due to it being a new city.

Is there a reason why we continue to countenance the rubbish about Shenzhen's supposed high crime rate. For the record.


I have lived and worked in Shenzhen for 23 years and have NEVER felt even remotely threatened. I have never been robbed. Taxi drivers never try to cheat me. Physically it is a VERY safe city.
It is also not some wild West factory town. Its official population is fourteen million making it the third most populous city in China. Unlike Shanghai and Beijing which have large rural populations, every one of the fourteen million Shenzheners is classified urban.
It is China's richest city with mile after mile of tree-lined middle class suburbs where people live around beautiful tropical gardens. It has a higher proportion of parks and gardens than any Chinese city other than Dongguan.
It is a major financial centre. China's largest financial institution, Ping An, is based in Shenzhen. Two of China's six listed banks are based in Shenzhen. Forty per cent of China's mutual funds are managed from Shenzhen. Shenzhen Airlines is China's largest private airline. HQ and R&D of two of the world's top ten electronics companies, Hua Wei and ZTE are based in Shenzhen. One of China's two stock exchanges is in Shenzhen. China's largest real estate developer, Vanke, is based in Shenzhen.
All of the above demonstrates why Shenzhen is such a magnet for immigrants and tourists from all over China and why it is one of the world's great skyscraper cities

I travelled to Shenzhen back in 2005. It was the only place I went to in China which 'felt' dangerous but in reality, China is a very safe place to travel. I had no problems at all. It may be something to do with it:

1) Being a port city
2) Being the richest city in Mainland China and hence having a high disparity in earnings
3) Having clueless tourists like me assume that everywhere is safe and getting their wallet nicked

Anyway, I had no problems in Shenzhen... the PSB are everywhere and as a foreigner I felt safe even though some areas felt a little shady.
