China is seen as one of the safest places in the world for foreign visitors, according to an international security report.
In the new Travel Risk Map 2018, the country is listed as having a "low" travel risk, which means "violent crime rates are low, and racial, sectarian or political violence or civil unrest is uncommon".
The report, now in its eighth year, is compiled and released annually by International SOS, and global risk and strategic consulting firm Control Risks.
China has become the fourth most popular destination for tourists worldwide, with more than 60 million trips made by people from other countries last year, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization.
Maria Pelayo, 24, of Madrid, said she was impressed by China's order and safety, which has made her feel much safer than in the United States or Turkey, where she also has visited.
She said she didn't feel like she was in any danger in Beijing, as she saw efforts from professionals, including volunteers on streets, police officers on patrol and security staff in the subways, to keep order.
