I reckon it would be safe to do by yourself, but depending on the time of year you go there may be very few other tourists so you could get a bit's also quite confusing as there are few signs in Roman script. I went with a tour and that was fab as someone else took responsibility and I had a ready made group of tour buddies. But, if you are confident and happy going alone then you should be fine. We never had any dangerous situations.

Hey Annie

Have you already come over to China? This is Jane from China now living in Beijing, I am glad that you are planning to travel here, but being alone might be not that comfortable, here not so many people speak english, well the bigger the city is, the better the situation is.
I would like to help while you are in Beijing, some guide stuff, shopping,things like that, for me it would be a great chance to meet one more friend and practise my english, contact me if you are interested.

I am not supposed to put my email address here, so i guess you may want to send me message through the system mail? I will check it frequent.

good luck!
