Chinese tourists have a pretty bad reputation all over the world. I haven’t personally witnessed any really bad behavior but I do find them annoying when I am also being a tourist. They tend to travel in large packs on tour busses everywhere they go. So a tour bus full of Chinese tourists might pull up to a location and then 40 or 50 people mob it for 20 or 30 minutes, talking loudly, pushing people out of the way to take pictures, etc… then leave. So if bus of Chinese tourists pulls up to wherever you are, it’s best to leave and come back in an hour.
But I find this article hilarious because Thai people are criticizing Chinese people for doing the same things they do. Chiang Mai residents apparently don’t like Chinese tourists because they:
- Don’t flush the toilet.
- Don’t follow traffic laws.
- Are loud.
- Litter, spit, and cut in line.
- Let children defecate in swimming pools.
- Have poor English-language skills.
I can’t say I’ve seen a Thai person doing #1 or #5 but everything else they are guilty of.
