young female solo traveller on 24hr train journey

by mmarian

I have to get from Australia to Beijing next month.
For the sake of excitement and to see much more of the county, I was planning on flying first to hong kong and then catching the 24hr Kowloon Through Train to Beijing.

However concerned family members are not on board with this plan;

Their reasoning is that as a 22 year old, pretty-ish, solo travelling, female this is downright unsafe.

I have not been to china but do not really associate it's big cities/ modern rail, as being any less 'safe' than anywhere in Australia.

What sort of merit is there in their protestations???

I was born in Russia and we visited China many times. Chinese trains (at least how they look from inside and outside) have strong Russian influence to say the least.

Being assaulted in any kind of car is extremely rare because besides two "provodnica" the attacker has to face at least 16, in China most likely at least 34 more angry passengers. That would be very dumb and very dangerous for the attacker.

Most likely here on VT I hold the mileage record for train travel - not a single time in 50+ years did I experienced anything worth to mention in person.

Crime against property is far more common. I did not experience it in trains either, but take basic precautions like don't display flashy things and keep cash/passport/documents/camera close to the body and if you go to the dining car take these with you.

I have travelled a few times on overnight trains and public transport in general in China and I feel safer there than on Australian public transport

No need to worry. You might have issues with train travel through China, but safety isn't one. Comfort, hygiene, chinese habits and onboard food quality might be.

Travel Tips for Hong Kong

Adaptor plugs in HK

by DSwede

Hong Kong and Macau both use 220V, 50Hz

Typical plug is British 3-pin rectangular blade plug:

However, older plug configurations can be found occasionally.

Even here, the best things in life are free.

The skyline, as seen from Kowloon, is one of the most dramatic in the world.

Go to the boardwalk at around 7:30 pm and catch the fountain show. Not quite as hypnotic as Bellagio's, but nice. Then at 8:00, turn around and catch the Symphony of Lights, an ambitious light show involving 18 buildings on Hong Kong island.

But the best thing about this experience is that it won't cost you a cent (assuming you still have some left over from shopping).

I think nobody's too old for Ocean Park or too romantic for The Peak. However, they didn't call HK the 'Shopping Capital of Asia' for nothing, so I suggest you include Mongkok and Tsim Sat Tsui in your itinerary. The longest stay I had in HK was for about a week, so I don't think I really got into the Chinese culture. One thing I can't forget about Hong Kong is the fact that people are still on the streets after 10PM! And the shops are still open, too!

eat the food sold in the streets of Hong Kong.
Also, go to Fa Yuen Street ( in Mongkok ) to buy clothes.
For electricity appliance, go to Ap Liu Street ( in Sham Shui Po)
To see the view of Hong Kong, go to the peak.
Try the ferry across the Victoria Harbour.
Go to the Temple Street at night, plenty of things to buy and foods to try.
and more...

by Mudhead

The night view of Victoria Harbour is the most famous sight-seeing point. You can view from the mountain or on the ferry across Victoria Harbour. Also, electronic consumer products in HK is very up-to-date and cheap, but make sure their voltage requirement fit your country.
