When Mainland Chinese Tourists are Misbehaving Abroad

During the day, I’m an engineer in a multinational company, and we have several Chinese partners working with us. This gave me a chance to interact and mingle with them. They are in fact no different than many of us and any other professionals out there. With cultures taken aside, they are as hardworking and as open as any staffs in our office. I have no problem with them, and I look forward to work with our Chinese partners again. I really don’t care whether they are Chinese, Japanese or Thais. It’s all about business, and that’s it.

Our Chinese partners came from Mainland China, sometimes in Taiwan or Hongkong. Outside work I met this nice guy from Singapore in a social media, and we have a nice chat about article writing. I never liked the government of People’s Republic of China, having occupied an Island near the Philippines and turned it into a military base.

Do understand that this article is meant to criticize people’s behavior and not the whole race, and I went to certain lengths to make it clear to the readers. Nevertheless, I did what I must to make my intentions clear. Now that we mentioned it, if you went into a tantrum in the comment section and call this article racist without even reading my work properly, then it is you who have a problem, as what happened before in my previous article.

Now people, let’s move on

Being Haughty is Just the Start
A hysterical tourist in Sweden.

One of the main complains people have with mainlander tourists are their tendency to act like spoiled brats. Simply being blessed with some fortunes to travel abroad gave them inflated superiority. In one case in Sweden, a certain someone named Zeng and his elderly parents arrived too early in a hostel in Stockholm last September 2. They made a mistake about the date of their booking, and the rooms were full. When the staffs refused to let them sleep in the lobby, they started making a scene and the police was eventually called i
