Security checks are commonplace in China especially during big events, and Hangzhou is the epitome of this trend because of the G20 summit. Security checks in China are unique because their security methods at subway and railway stations are similar to the methods used at airports. Security staff is placed at the entrances of subways and train stations with equipment like X-ray scanners and metal detectors. Do you feel inconvenient about security checks in China?

I can't think of any other country in the world where there are 'security checks' on the subway system.
It says a lot about China if the country thinks it is needed there.

I don't really mind at all
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

I have always been reassured that there are precautions in action and that is worth the inconvenience.
(mostly harmless)

given the prevalence of knife crime in China (compared to gun crime in other countries), and the fact that a small knife can be easily concealed on the body, these 'security measures' are nothing more than a token gesture.

A couple of years ago the sale of kitchen knives was temporarily banned in parts of Beijing because foreigners had been knifed on the streets.

can you name another country that has such security on all the train and subway stations?

if china was serious about crime, there would be better enforcement.
