my opinion

You will be as safe as in Italy.Be very careful with your money.Better have it in a place where nobody can see it.
Italy safers a lot from stealers.More than Beijing I am afraid.
As far as the restaurants.My opinion is that ladies like you or like my girlfriend ,if they sit alone ,they may find some guys willing to keep them company.So better avoid it.

You will be safer in Beijing than in Athens.......

But do some practical things in advance.....From experience.

Get a card with the phone number and address written Chinese of the place where you will be staying......If you get lost just show the cab driver the card....or if you have to call you will have the number. Put other important addresses and numbers on the back of the card so you will have a reference.

Always carry your I.D and Passport, except when you are in the shower.

Don't be arrogant or demanding (I have seen this a lot) the Chinese are very polite and always willing to help (unless you are causing problems for them)

Learn the money just like you would anywhere else. Dracma, Lire, Pesos, Dollars. RMB are very easy to learn. It's up to you to know the value of things. What is it worth to YOU?
