Generally Zhaoqing, and especially the campus, is a very safe place to live. There are many security guards around the place, both day and night. However, don’t let this stop you from using common sense and taking precautions. There have been incidents the past, although these are rare.
“Zhaoqing appears a very safe place to live. On campus there are many guards who patrol day and night. There are pickpockets in ZQ, on the buses and around the busy areas. If you leave any possession in a public place it is unlikely to be there when you return. It makes sense to take the same care you would at home. Often however, foreigners comment that they find themselves feeling safer in Zhaoqing than they had in their home country. Even so, please be careful.
